Saturday HornliiK, Mnrcli 6, I8K6-
current Events mid Opinions.
Turn   we   now   to  the   Times,
wliich, for Jirazfln-faeed misrepresentation  nnd   stalwart   lying,   com
pletely out-Herods old Herod of the
Standard.   As our New Westminster contemporary juBtly observes,
tbe Times lias unhappily inaugurated a style of journalism hitherto
unknown in   British Oolumbia, a
style which is forcing party politics
ultogether out of the region of intelligent und honest discussion.   Instead of correcting error and enlightening   its   readers  on   public
questions, it deliberately applies itself 'to the tusk of misstating facts
and   misleading the public  mind,
apparently for the sole purpose of
endeavoring to damage the present
administration witli the hope that
the party whose fitting organ it is
may be able to secure their places.
It has been seen how opposition organs have exerted themselves not
only to make the world believe that
Uritish Columbia is governed hy a
aet of dishonest and unprincipled
scoundrels, but   that the country
itself is hopelessly bankrupt—thus,
to the ful! extent of their power,
damaging its credit abroad.   For an
illustration, we need go no farther
thnn tho Times' leading article lost
evening.     For some time it hus
been reiterating the statement that,
during the three years the present
government have been in power the
expenditure  has exceeded the receipts to the extent of $292,864.83.
Last ovening, reverting to the same
pet   subject, it says:    "Wo Imve
shown that according to the government's own accounts, the expenditure over receipts for tho year ending 30th June, 1883, the first year
tinder tho Suuthd-Robson regime, to
have  been   $165,773.3Qjllfor  tho
year ending 30th June, 1884, their
second year, the expenditure over
receipts was §83,803.81, and for the
third year the expenditure in excess
of revenue was §53,227.6(1, showing AN AGGREGATE DEFICIT
of 8292,864.83 in their operations
up to the 30th of last June."  Now,
see how plain a tale will put down
this  unscrupulous falsifier; and if
the reader will take the public accounts, as published for theso years,
and   follow   us, he  will see that
every fact   and   figure   given   in
strict accord therewith, and, consequently, unimpeachable.    The receipts for the fiscal year ending 30th
June, 1883, amounted to 839,400.32-
the   expenditure   to  $595,173.71,
thus showing a deficit of $155,773.-
39.   But this deficit was neither a
surprise nor tho result of miscalculation.   In asking the house to vote
estimates of expenditure so much
in excess of apparent revenue, it
was fully explained that the dock
refund   was   anticipated, and  tho
houso gave tho government power
to borrow the money in the event
of any necessity arising.   The dock
refund being iu sight and the bank
willingly allowing an overdraft at
the moderate rate of fivo per cent,
no loan was necessary. The receipts
for the fiscal year ending 30th June,
1884, were §891,279.95 (including
of course dock refund), and the expenditure was §590,631.10, so that
there was a surplus of §300,648.85
on the 30th June, 1884.   The receipts for the fiscal year ending 30th
Juno, 1885, wero §602,897.49; the
cxp^'idituro §657,025.15, showing a
deficit C! -W2.237.6fl.     (Soo page
122a public accounts, 1885.)   Now
the reader wi.'.1 observe that there
was a  deficit of   #03.227.06 and
nothing more, at thc  end of the
three years referred to; tf*ad y«t tlio
public are asked by tho grW* "%
gerer" of the Times to believe ihat
the shortage   was actually §292,-

(Reported for the Columbian.)
A publio meeting of the ratepayer!
of the municipality of Surrey was held
in the municipal hall on Saturday,
Feb. 27th, 1886, the reeve, Thos.
Shannon, Est]., in the clmir. The
■chairman slated the object of lhe meeting wai to obtain nu expression of
.opinion as to tlio propriety of tho
(untuncil submitting a bylaw to the vote
of tho ratepayers, granting n lmmia of
91000 and a free situ valued at 81200
to any party or parties who mny bo
willing to establish a first-class flour,
oatmimt and feed mill at Brownsville,
nud with a viow to enlightening gentlemen who were present he would request tho olerk to road n draft tif the
bylaw which the counoil proposed to
submit to the ratepayers. The clerk
rend a drnft of the Surrey slmiin (li

aim) a statement allowing tlu- amount
of inoreain of taxation (hat would he I nud othor things behind them.
necessary to assess on the present rate
to pay oft' tho amount of proposed bon-
ua within a period of twenty years, also showing the amount of money expended on Sour and feed imported into
Now Westminster during the lust two
years, which wns upwnrds of 890,000,
nud not including oatmeal. This large
amount was expended in purchasing a
foreign product whioh our own province should and could supply had we
but the facilities to manufacture our
grain into Hour and feed. Mr. Abraham Huck addressed tho meeting. Ue
did not believe in giving a bonus at
all; he thought there was a good thing
in a grist mill; ho would like to build
one if his circumstances permitted;
but he was decidedly opposed to putting a mill out to one aid* of tho muni-1
oipality as was proposed to be done In
the present instance, Mr. Wm. Smith
then addressed the meeting and showed
the benefits likely to accrue to this
municipality through the establishment of a mill such as the one proposed
tu be established at Brownsville. Bethought a smull **■»■-> Horse rid -***ch as
outlined by a previous speaker might
supply the requirements of a few of
the poople, but if we were going into a
mill at all we should go in for one that
would be a credit to us and ono that
would manufacture an article equal, if
not superior, to the best imported. A
gentleman present asked Mr. S. if ho
thought he could make a good artiole
of flour from the wheat raised on the
fiats, Mr. S. stated when he first
came to,tho Squamish country he had
occasion to go to Seattle to purchase
supplies and among other things a ton
of flour. Oregon flour he considered
was retailed at a muoh higher price
than what was just, compared with
the price of wheat, ao he went tn the
mill that was there (a small affair);
flour was the samo price there; he
asked if they had no other flour; he
was told yes, and he could have it at a
dollar a barrel cheaper than the othor,
but that he could not uso it as it was
made from wheat grown on the flats.
Mr. S. requested, permission to superintend tho grinding and he would purchase a-ton; permission was granted,
und the result was as good flour ns he
ever used, and he manufactured the
flour that took the premium at the
centennial exhibition, He considered
that tho location of a mill at Brownsville was a central locality, that it was
a place well adapted to the business
owing to the excellent shipping facilities it afforded. Mr. W. Shannon
theu spoke at somo length. He showed
that, compared with the advantages
the paople of Surrey would receive
from tho establishment of a first-class
mill within easy distance, tho extra
amount of taxes was a mere bagatelle.
Moro than that, if wo could only stop
the terrible drain on tho resources of
the country, what au advantage to the
country at large. Mr. Shannon showed
that the mill if established as proposed
would create a homo market for all
surplus grain, whioh would be somewhat of an advance on the present
order of things; that there were but
rery fow throughout the rural sections
of the country but what could raise
wheat onough tn make flour to keop
themselves and families. That alone
would bo quite a consideration, as ho
doubted not tho timo was not far distant wheu it would be moro difficult to
got high rates of wages, when the doi*
lar would not bo forthcoming so readily, and strangers coining into the
country aud seeing farmers come into
town and purchase flour and haul it
out to the farm would consider it a
strange anomaly, and that auch a thing
would have a tendency to givo intending settlers a nut very exalted opinion
of ub as a class. Well, now we have
an opportunity to change that order of
things; shall we accept tho offer or
shall wc go on as we have been going?
Mr. J. W. Robinson, Mr. Oeo. Booth
royd and Mr. Jno. Armstrong briefly
addressed the meoting, nnd in favor of
the mill scheme. Mr. Geo. Boothroyd
moved and Mr. W. Shannon seconded
the adoption of tha following resolution: "That whereas the time has nrrived for the people uf Surrey to secure the establishment of a flour, oat
meal and feed mill within the limits
of this corporation, so that the present
heavy drain on our resources through
the importation of foreign flour nnd
grain products may in n measure be
avoided; and whereas tho establishment of a first-class steam flour, oatmeal and feed mill at Brownsville will
be the means of creating a home market for our surplus products; Bo it
therefore resolved, that this meeting
views with pleasure the present aotion
of the council in tho matter of granting a bonus to nny party or p.rties
who may be willing to construct such
a mill aa indicated aud undor the conditions contained in tho draft of bonus
bylaw submitted to this meeting," The
resolution was carried unanimously,
nfter which the meoting adjourned,

A Novel Expedient.
Au exploring party sent out by the
Geographical Society of Australia had
some novel experiences in New Guinea.
They went up the river Fly on the
itr. Bonita, and on one occasion when
the hostile natives saw the steamer
approaching they swarmed out in
thousands and lined the banks of the
fiver, while hundreds darted about in
handsomely carved war canoes. They
were evidently ready to attack the
party, boing all in their war paint,
with gorgeous plumes of birds' wings.
It is said that tho sight wai a grand
one. Those on uhoro set up a war
ohnut and went through a kimi of
dance. The natives in the canoes
caught up the strain, and tho chant of
"Tai aroha, tai aroba," in harmonious
cadences, tilted the air. With their
hideously bedecked bodies thb natives
on laud luoked like demons as they
chanted and went through the grotesque but graceful movements. The
party woro awaiting an attack, when
it waa determined ou beard to astonish the natives, so thuy blew the steam
whistle of the Bouito, and throe deafening uotos from it drowned tho war
oliiinl and uoninletely dispersed the
dusky warriors. Tlia ir-ar canoes were
upset aud tho river was dotted with
blaok heads, with the paint half
washed ofl' thulr faoes, ami their
plumes tliiituned out and olingilig to
their nkiilk The nativuR on the shoro

ountl for liis fears,.for if the fran.
lise were placed in the hands of
omen it is* almost certain that he
id others of his sort would be for-

■guments  tliat may  be presented
i both sides of the question, bllt
ir coteiiiporriiy does not venture
t all into  the region of argument,
ut dismisses the subject  with a
leer at the women who aspire to
ie privilege of voters.    We are of
pinion that our laws would bo bet
ir arid better enforced  if women
•ere allowed' to vote, and  tliat the
reat moral reforms so much desired
y all good men would bo greatly
listened. Woman suffrage in Wash-
igton Territory, where it has been
i operation for more than a year,
as been a conspicuous success, and
len of such large observation and
lature judgment ns Judge Greene,
hief justice of the territory, have
orne willing and hearty testimony
o the  good it has accomplished.
lut no one  acquainted with the
rliaracter and practices of our local
rotemporary would expect him to
nvor anything looking to reform.
which is chapter 20 in the statutes
of 1880, antl consists of three clauses,
as follows:
1. The Imlepciiilcuco of Parliament
act, I87.*r. is hereby repealed. (2) Any
person who has at any time since tiro
passing of tile said last mentioned act
been elected member of the legislative
assembly, and wlm may, by reason of tlio
said aot being in force, have become ills-
qualified to sit or voto iu the legislative
assembly as such member, is hereby relieved from such disqualification nml
from any consequent disability to sit or
vote in the said assembly, and every
such person is hereby indemnified, extra,
orated, freed and discharged from all demands or forfeitures mentioned m said
act. (3) This aet may be pleaded as,
and shall operate as, a bar to and discharge of any action or suit now pending, and of any procoediucs taken theie
in whether for costs or otherwise, and
of any suit, actiou. or proceedings what- . ■ ;|lollM hl Ul0 rjoiinlv

brought against such person under thc |
provisions of the act ill thc lirst seetion
mon tinned.
It. will scarcely be necessary for
us to sny that this aet was passed
by the government of the party
now in opposition, and the purpose
of it wus to whitewash a nienibor of
that government who had accepted
money in violation of the Independence of Parliament act. Mr.
Beaven gave the repealing act his
support, and this Mr. Heaven, now
leader of the opposition, is tho pernio house" to the fact* that Mr. Oun-

British Columbia Wheat.
Mi\ Win. Shannon, of Clover
Valley, brought to this office the
itlier day a sample of us fine wheat
is we liaye ever seen. This wheat
ivns grown by Mr, Shannon, on his
'arm at Clover Valley, and the yield
ivas 60 bushels to thn acre! This
yield may nob be taken as a fair
tvorage. however, but Mr. Shannon
itntt'S that, under ordinary circum-
ttanees, from 40 to 45 bushels could
be relied oil to the acre. The
sample may be seen and examined
iny timo at tliis otlice. Tt will be
seen by a report of the Surrey public meeting held last Saturday (the
report will be found on the lst
page) that- the schemo'for establishing a large flouring mill at Brownsville begins to assume form, and
the people of Surrey will be called
upon shortly to say by their votes
whether or not they are willing to
Kraut a bonus towards its erection
id maintenance. It is claimed by
persons of experience in such matters that there is nothing to prevent the manufacture of first class
Hour out of wheat grown in this
part of the province. There has
been an opinion generally prevail
iug tliat wheat grown on tlie lower
Fraser is too soft, but Mr. Smith
atod nt' the Surrey meeting that
this opinion is entirely a mistake.
Such wheat as is raised in this district .simply requires a special treatment, wliiuli does not add appro
i-iably  to the cost of manufacture,
id it. will make as good flour as
tlmt ot' Oregon or California. If
this is tho case, lhe erection of a
lirst-class steam flouring mill in
. localjty wliere it may be easily
reached by the fanners of the various settlements and adjacent to rail
way and steamers, becomes a most
important undertaking. It is well
known tlmt a very large sum of
money (estimated at not less than
#150,000) is annually sent out of
this district for ilour, feed and oatmeal, all of which ought to bo manufactured right here. If the scheme
proposed by the enterprising people
of Surrey succeeds in stopping that
leak, it deserves tho moat hearty
encouragement and support of the
people.
Independence i>f Parliament
On the 1 Cth of April, 1880, the
Into Mr.  £. Brown, who wns then
ineiiilier for tflis city, introduced a
hill to amend the Independence of
I Parliament act of 1875.   This bill,
: (is shown by the journals of the
house, wos introduced and read a
first time on the 10th; on the 17th
it was read a second time and pas
through committee, and the rules
were suspended so as to enable the
house to read it a second time and
pass it that day; on the 19th the
lieutenant-governor came down to
the house and assented to the bill,
ningham lias heen receiving money
from the government for various
supplies. It must be quito plain to
every one Unit Mr. Beaven's object
lias not been to preserve the ind.
pendence of parliament, but to make
the statute book and the legislature a power for the accomplishment of party schemes. With one
hand he seeks to cover up the sins
of liis political colleague: with the
other he exposes the shortcomings
of an opponent. We have no word
to say in defence of Mr, Cunningham's conduct. We shall not venture to express an opinion as to
whether he hus broken the law or
not. What he has done is certainly contrary to the spirit at least of
all acts purporting to secure parli
mentary independence, and it is a
sort of practice that might interfere with the honest administration
of publio afl'ttirs. But neither Mr
Beaven nor his friends can with
consistency move iti n matter in
which they themselves have been
guilty, nor can they make political
capital out of tho case of Mr. Cun
ningham.

Who is He ? - Sumo time ago a paragraph appeared in the papers concerning a man who had skipped out from
tho other side, for Victoria, leaving
sundry hills unpaid, etc., and whom
the authorities were anxious to sec.
Hu was described as being 0 feut i-ineh
tail, woro light mutton chop whiskers,
wus very broad shouldered - ete. Nothing moro woe heard of him till about
two weeks ngo, when a mnn appeared
ttt a small place on the east coast, representing himself ns a modioal man
nnd son of a Scottish enrl, or something
of .that character. Ho went up, as he
said, to purchase a ranch and bargained
with n well-known gentleman to buy
him out. Ho ingratiated himself so
far with tho gentleman's family that in
a few days ho waa engaged to one of
his daughters, and also proposed to
buy a ranch worth 810,000 for ono of
thu sons, and to send another to Scotland to Btudy medicino. Tho gay Lothario then announced thnt he must
be married by the middle of March, or
otherwise hu would loso somo £100,-
000. This was agreed to and all was
arriHigud fur the marring-* tn take
ph_h at anothor east const town; but,
alas for human hopes, on thu eve of
thoir departure a stoamer arrivud bearing the weekly mail, among which wns
tho notico referred to at thu top of this
item. _ The description fitted so exactly
that it was u pen photograph of. the
noble stranger nnd when 'confronted
with it he acknowledgc'i his identity
but alleged in defense that it had boon
circulated by a valet hu had discharged
for misconduct in Portland. He announced his intention of at once leaving for Victoria and clearing the affair
up and said he would charter a special
steamer nud leavo at once. He left
accordingly aud left for good (for the
good of the, community), He is uot
known |o have come to Viotoria and
the auppuftioii is thnt he took a
slightly different route and went up to
Now Westminster. The next that
will probably bo heard of this "scion
of a noble house" will he that he has
victimized other trusting people, or
perdaventuru hu may yet figure in a

FRIKND8  FOR THK FHIENBLESS.
The Temperance Mission Reading
Room, just about to be opened iii this
oity, is under the auspices of the
Womntis' Christian Temperance Union
and the Christian Mission Union. The
W.C.T.U, is n well-known, nlmost
world-wide organization, a branch of
which hns beeu in existence in this
city for over two yenrs. The CM.U.
is uf more recent origin, and its object
not so well understood. It sprang
from the desire of a band of Christian
workers, from the different churches,
to mnke their efforts moro effectual,
They hnd for some timo boon visiting
the jail and hospital and holding religious service with the inmates on the
Lord's Day, supplying them with
Billies and giving them the temperuncu
pledge aa well as befriending thu men
and finding employment for them when
discharged.
A meeting wai'appointed for consultation, to which all who had ever
assisted in this work were invited. It
was well attended, aud after considerable discussion it was resolved to organize a society the members of which
Bhould pay a dollar fee upon entering
and twenty-five cents por month after*
wanls, so securing a fund from which
to draw when tracts were needed or
destitute men required a meal or a bed
fur the night. As Mr. W. R. Austin
had been the tirst of the company to
undertake the prison und hospital services, and being also well qualified for
the position, he was unanimously
chosen 'resident, and the necessary
staff of oflicers was elected under him.
The question then arose, "By what
name shall our society be known"? and
it was finally decided that tho most
appropriate one would be "Christian
Mission Union."
For some time previous the ladies of
the W.C.T.U. had been thinking and
talking of reviving their public reading
Worn, n»d if possible of having associated with it a house where refreshments might be procured by men who
have no homos-to go to aud who are
exposed to temptations on that account. When this new society.wiib
formed, somo of these ladies being
members of both unions, it was proposed that the Mission Union and tho
W.C.T.U. work together in this matter, us their object and aim are one.
This plan mot with general approval,
and was adopted aud acted upon at
onoe. A suitablo building on Columbia street was secured, (directly opposite the postoffice), a member of the
W.C.T.U. from Maple Ridge offering
to assume tho responsibility of routing
the place and opening it as u temper-
auco boarding and lodging house,
whore coffee can be served at nny time
during the day or evening; the largo-
front room to be furnished and all subsequent expenses met by tho two
unions equally.
AU these arrangements necessarily
occupied some time, aud it was thought
best to say little about the plan till it
was ascertained to be practicable; but
at last the thought has cryatnlizod into
a fact, and thu room wns used for the
first ti nio last Wednesday night, by
the members of the two societies, who
met together there to acknowledge
their dependence upon God and to
commit tu Him thumsulves individually and tho work they arc undertaking
iu His name aud for His glory alono;
nlso in thia wuy to sot apnrt tho room,
for the time it shall be bo occupied, ns
a gospel temperance rending room.
Noxt Sunday (to-morrow) aftornoon,
at the closo of thu Sunday schools,
thero will bo a gospel service held
thore for the benefit of men who are
wandering ou the streets and who have-
no pleasant wuy of spending thoir day
of rest. Monday evening the general
public are invited to visit the mom
and listen, to appropriate addresses
from ministers and other friends ofthe cause, suitable music boing nlso
provided,
The members of theso unions will bu
very grateful to nny kind friends who
hnve newspapers aud other good literature which they mny feel free to loud
to the reading room; for at present,
after the expense of furnishing, their
fluids are limited and they have not as
much money aa thoy could wish to do*
voto te the procuring of fresh reading
matter. We aro authorised to say
that, if so desired, magazines, &c„
could be returned to the owners at tlie
end of each month,'1 Earnest Christian workers from aU the churches are
welcome to join this Christian band,
and will find that there is nothing narrow or sectarian about it. . The cardinal idea wltieh inspires thu members is
the fact that men 'from home nnd without home aro surrounded by evil influences, snd they often go astray for
want of a quiet placo in which to spend
thoir leisure houn, This room is intended to be sueh a plsce, whero they
will find true friends whose only object
will be to make their lives brighter
and happier snd better.
The originators of this sehome confidently depend upon the generous support of sn appreciating public fur
assiitanee fn this undertaking, feeling
sure thst a trifle givon from time to
time by the many will prevent the
financial burden from falling heavily
upon suy individual. It is a noble
enterprise which must appeal to tho
judgment and heart of every Christian
sud every philanthropist.

On Monday a long discussion touk
place on the motion mnde by Mr, Semlin for a return of the expenditure of
tho dock refund iu eaoh district, Tt
was stated that tho dock money had
beon paid into tho ordinary treasury,
snd no separate nccount of it hnd beeu
kept. It would not be possible, therefore, to say exactly where this money
has bnim spent, Hon. Mr. Robson
said the government hnd felt that ns
tho hmount of 67110,000 wni u«iug
arbitrarily to Ihu island railway, it was
only just that the mainland should
have the benefit or thu 8250,000 refund
on account of the drydnuk. It had

Mr, Helgesen proposed «, resolution
to prevent Chinese from cutting hemlock bark on crown lands. This gave
rise to much debate, und it wna contended that tho governmont had nu
power to prevent Chinese from cutting
bark, and this power could only bo
givon by statute.
On Tuesday the session was taken
up by a discussion on island nnd mainland roads, certain members of tbo
opposition complaining that large sums
had been spent un roads in Now Westminster district,' while rniids on the

*" ■**"■■ .a. trail .from hero to Granite

up subscriptions nnd otherwise provide
for tho equipment of au exploring
pnrty, which was carried unanimously.
The committee go to work at once, und
in tho courso of 3 or 4 days the party

Editor Columbian,*—In your issue of
tho 17th I aee that yonr correspondent
says he is a personal.friend of mine; but
as I never did, and hope I nover will
acknowledge any person as being a Mend
of mine ftsioiig.sshewearsamask (for
if there is ono thing more than nnother
in humanity that I detest it is a man
that will talk to the public through the
press in defense of another man's publie
acts, and himsolf behind a screen, showing by thnt net thnt he himself either
does not believo what he is saying or
docs not understand whnt he is talking
ubout); and although he plainly says lie
is my personal friend, 1 shall refuse to
uccc-ot liim us such until he shows to the
public that lie is hot ashamed to put his
name to whnt ha has tossy. In looking
over your eorreBpoodeut'a letter, I see
nothing worthy of -notice until I como to
the wholesale license. He Bays I blamed
Mr. McGiltiyray for refusing to impose a
wholesale license of §100 por annum on n
now industry, the manufacture of cheese.
Now, as to tho nevness of the industry,
ovcryono who reads his letter must come
■,0 tiio conclusion Abat ho is mistaken,
for it is one of the oldest industries in
bhe world. Then he calls it the manufacture of cheese; if ho will consult
Chambers or Webster lie will find thnt a
cheese maker is not a manufacturer. A
manufacturer is u. person that makes
something from raw materials intaa form
suitable for nio* -Now as tb tho Hcense'
itself, his aim sui-ius to be to get tho public to beliovo that tho reeve hnd a right
to refuse to impose tho license In question on account of private interests.
Now, if I understand tho duty of a roevo,
it is not to imvise tbe council to ignore
tho law, but to seo thai ine ntw is carried out bythe council j and to provo
thc grouuds tliat I take I will refer your
correspondent to -.-I-mss 10 of the municipal act, which says it shnll be his duty
to cause tho law te be put iu force and
to recommend1 all such measures as may
tend tothe improvement of the tiuauues.
The next thing I will refer your correspondent to is the latter part of clause
fit of the municipal act, which, wheu
tho reove makes the declaration lie says,
I will faithfully perform the duties of
my oflico and will not allow any private
interests to influence my conduct in public matters.! Now, how does Mr. McGillivray's advice to the late counoil to ignore the law, ou account of private interests, appear ? On the contrary, the act
says lie shall Beo that the law is put in
force, and in taking the oath of ollice he
say b ho will see that it Is pill in' force;
and tho cheese maker himself was a
councillor at the time and' he took the
same oath as the reeve. Now if your
correspondent thinks that he would like
to defend the reeve's public acts any further, I hope he will put his name to his
correspondence, and then I may acknowledge him as my personal friend.

Ottawa, Mar. 2.--*-Brttish Columbia
members are strongly urging the government to make certain amendments to
the Chinese restriction act of Inst cession,
which they represent fallB Bhort of what
is reipiircd to keep the Chineso out of

to pay $T»0 before ho*can land they are
assisted in evading tlu law by their
countrymen, who were residents-ia the
country nt the. time of the passagtf oT tbe
Chinese restriction act, These nre entitled to ecrt ifieates without a fee to roturii without paying tbe $50 exacted

on British soil, simply hnnd their certi*
licates to customs oflicers and are allowed
to hind without paying the regular tax,
In tho govc-rnor-goneral's speech reference was mndo to a proposed amendment

nre under the protection of tlie Austrian
flaj*. Queen Victoria spontaneously
paid a great compliment to America todayiu receiving Mra. Phelps, wife of the
U.S. minister, in private audience at
Windsor castle. Mra. Phelps, accompanied by the Earl and Countess of Eose-
bery nnd party, met at Windsor station
and were convoyed to the castle by
special court carriages. The countess
presented Mrs. Phelps hi the ambassador's room. The Queeii received Mrs,
Phelps most cordially and conversed with
her some time. Respecting receiving
tho minister's wife privately by tbe
Queen it is most phenomenal, the honor
is due only to the wife of an ambassador.
The honor is more marked because the
Queeii will hold a drawing-room shortly,
at which the customary presentation of
ministers' wives will be mnde. Mr. Morley, the new chief-secretary for Ireland,
in the house of commons this afternoon,
indicated by his nnswora to tpiCBtions
aliout tho distress in Ireland, that tho
government would soon Btart relief works
iu nil tlio western parts of Ireland.
Lonuon, March 4,—The Parnellites
hnve decided to array themselves against
the Tories in their attempt to force the
government to show their hand as to
their policy, during the debate which is
expected to begin to-night on civil service estimates. Conservatives had arranged to interrupt the governor's proposition to go into committeo on civil
service estimates by au amendment declaring that the house wns unwilling to
entertain estimates for civil establishments in Ireland, before being placed in
possession of the polioy which the government intended to pursue for the restoration and maintenance of social order

eminent would be either blocked or compelled to divulge their intentions. Par-
nell, however, has resolved to go to
Gladstone's rescue. The Irish lenders
are satisfied tlmt in view of the premier's
promise to state his Irish policy after the
22ud of March, at which date he expected to be through the government's financial business, he is entitled to bo protected from disturbance on thnt issue, until
after the expiration of tho time asked
for. Accordingly the Parnellites this
afternoon resolved to oppose in n body
Holmes' amendment. This will undoubtedly give the government all the votes
necessnry to defeat the amendment.-—
The snow storm which has been raging

The Appetite for Strong Drink.
How Formed.
Intoxication is a state uf the nerves
which makes the man feel out of him-
elf-—above himself—and beyond liim-
elf. At first it (jives a pleasing sen*
»tion, a sense of relief from the cares
■>f life; but tho enjoyment—the exhilarating, exalted feeling continues only
fur a short time, for the reaction is in
excess of the exaltation. Alcohol does
Dot impart nerve power, nor does it create it; it produces an unnatural and
excessive action of the nerves, which
 j up in n brief period the surplus
nerve power we possess. The effect of
alcohol upon the brain ia to disturb its
natural action at the very time its restraining, regulating influences are
most needed, Alcohol then causes increased action of tho nerves aud expenditure of nerve power without adding power to sustain the system at the
stimulated point; consequently roac-
tion must follow. The reaction de
intnids more stimulant; if taken, more
reuctiou follows, to be again succeeded
by a stronger desire for more stimulant, uutil a seeming absolute necessity
for tho drink is created. In the moderate drinker, thia feeling is represented by a feeling of sinking, of discomfort, which ia often difficult to overcome; but iu the drunkard it exists as
a disease, before which all restraint
seems powerless, and he will do anything, nnd suffer anything, rather than
the anguish springing from the desire
for alcohol, whioh is now beyond his
control. At this Btage, taste, as far ns
the palate is concerned, haa little to do
with his thirst. It is the intense, m-
describnble craving of thu mun fur
etjuuut1 'pangB or 'itmonnfiu uttorn ■*' it is
the revenge of the soul for the deliberate, criminal poisoning of the organism
ipeclally appointed as tho medium of
Us own activities. No wonder the man
will sacrifice Iub all for deliverance,
even for a few moments, from tho depression and torture which lio feels.
He recoils nt the thought of a physical
hell within him. Thu visible nud in
jurious effect uf alcohol ames according to temperament. The mnn of
placid temperament, whom nothing
ruffles or offends, may not feel its
effects ub some others. Tho man of
culd temperament mny stand apparently unhurt until he ia slain. But the
excitable temperament whose fine-
strung nerves nre easily acted upon;
whose fiery, impulsive, open-hearted,
and generous natures are ns the gun-
cot tun which needs but the pressure ur
the spark to become uncontrollable
they demand more drink with all the
agony of unstrung, poisoned nerves.
It is vain to plead with them. No picture can present to them in greater
horrors the agony they feel: a much
abused and suffering body: an insulted, outraged conscience demanding
intisfaction, and the feurful forebodings consequent upon a mis-spent life,
nil combine to make the mnn a living,
walking hell, who often seeks relief in
suicide, and not, prodigal-1 ike, by returning to his Father's house. Alcohol
never leads to Oud, happiness, and
heaven; but always to the Devil,
misery, aud hell. "At the last it
hiteth like a serpent, and stittgeth like
an adder.' The drunkard's thirst is
partly a physical disease and partly a
mural depravity, as inebriation is temporary insanity, caused by the poisonous effect of a physical agont on the
brain and the nerves.
JTUKNGTH  OK TIIE ALCOHOLIC APPETITE.
Mr. Burnet declared thnt he would
bu nut aud get whiskey, although it
ihould cost him 20 pounds a glass, and
if his wife did not stand aside he would
murder her. Mr, Roberta said to
Cameron: '"Vou can't know the awful-
nesB of,the temptation; the very smell
unmetimes causes agonizing desire.
Oh, Cameron, take n lesson from me—
touch not the accursed thing. Dtp the
tip of your linger in water and touch
my tongue—that's more than I deserve, and soon more than I'll get."
He died in a few hours! I'oor Fred
lost all self-control—a slave to his fatal
and tyrannical passion. To gratify it
he sacrificed every thins—credit, honor,
natural affection, and self-respect. One
dny with tears streaming down his
haggard face, aud his thin hands trembling with passion he said, "I cannot
help it." His poor young wifo labored
in vain to redeem him. He went to
the drink as a victim, and he felt it,
uud hated, so far as he had power to
hate, the "mocker" that had him in
its pitiless grasp. He sank into a
palsied, hopeless imbecile. So died
Frederick Wat son, of powerful memory,
polished intellect, and graceful manners. In Boston (Mass.) 60 reformed
inebriates testified that they could not
drink a glass of the mildest form of
intoxicating liquor without t-oing back
to former habits, so terrible would this
fearful though dormant appetite he-
come. A friend once said to me.,
"You nre surprised that I have sacrificed all that is dear to me to this fatal
appetite; but," said he, "when that terrible craving comes upon me, if you
wero tu offer me with one hand heaven
with a oup of water and with the other
hell with a glass of brandy, I would be
impelled hy that appetite, without a
moment's hesitation, to tnke hell and
the brandy.". Lawyer Richmond:
" 'Few persons aro aware of tho fearful
ordeal through which thu reformed in-
abriate haa to pass to restore himself
to his family and friends," Alcohol
first affects the stomach, then thu liver,
then the heart, aud then the brain,
aud all the great nerve centres of the
system. It not only enlarges the
blood-vessels of the brnin, but the
cells of the tissue, which are never
again restored to their normal size and
condition, Whenever an artificial up-
petite is formed it seems to hu a phyai*
tai law that just in proportion to the
njury caused to the system by the
■ratification of that appetite, its demands are increased. Not ao with the
mtural appetite. The appetite for in-
-oxicating drinks is unlike any other
ippetite, It differs in degree even
rom the appetite of opium and tobacco.
Though opium is annually destroying
iiany lives.it doea not to a great ex-
ont promote crime. There is disease
ind death in the stupor of opium; hut
here is disease, death- and crime in

Tonkins *nd Father.
. A dietlnguiihed Kngliih visitor saw
Itfomkini ud FatherVinted upon a
[inboard  in New York Oity.   The
uano und style of that firm astonished
the Englishman. In his slow, old*
fashioned country the firm would be
Tomkins nnd Son. Young America
had got ahead of his male parent and
wrote it Tomkins aijd Father. The
name and atyle of that firm is very suggestive and explains a good many
things that trouble us on this and the
other Bide of the lines.
Tomkins and Father explains why
some children come very irregularly to
the Sabbath school. Young Tomkins
doos not feel like going evory Sabbath,
aud Father and Mother Tomkins have
no authority to send him. Tho lad
does what he feels like doing, not what
he is asked to do by his Sabbath school
teacher. The result is that Tomkins
junr. is very iregular in his attendance
at the Sabbath school, his teacher becomes discouraged, the superintendent
ib nsked to interfere, tho pastor tries
hia hand, but all to vory little purpose.
Tomkins junr. is the managing member of tho domestic establishment and
he comes and goes aa he thinks proper.
Sabbath school conventions diBcusB
such questions as "Irregular attendance," "How to keep the larger boys
in school," etc., but no convention oan
mend the matter. Tomkins junr. is
the managing member of the home
firm and he does just as he likes. The
only remedy is for Tomkins senr. to
become the head of the firm.
Tomkins and Father explains why it
is so difficult to keep order in some
Sabbath schools. One would naturally
suppose that children assembled to
study God's Word in Ood's houBe on
God's Day would conduct themselves
in an orderly manuer. Of course the
young of all animals are playful, nnd
no mnn would..^«»fifc^wOi"rif-3VTO
keep as quiet as grown people. Thnt
should not bo expected; but there iB a
well-marked difference between vitality
nnd disorder—between the natural outflow of youthful life and rowdyism.
Ltick of parental authority at home no
counts for u large proportion of tho
disorder that prevails in some Sabbath
schools. Tomkins junr. doea just ns
he pleases at-.home, and he naturally
moppuses that he Bhould do juat aa he
pleasDB everywhere. The fault lies
with Tomkins senr. and his better half.
They allowed Tomkins junr. to become
mnnnger of the home firm when ho
should have occupied a , subordinate
position in the domestic establishment.
If Tomkins senr. would apply the
family birch a little to Tomkins junr.,
the application would do far more good
than any number of resolutions passed
at a Sabbath sohool convention about
"How to keep order in the Sabbath
school." Tomkins senr. should take a
lesson from Abraham, and "command"
his children to behave themselves,
Abraham and Sarah, his wife, were
better authority on home training than
any convention.
Tomkins and Father explains quite
clearly why it ia so difficult to keep
order in many cf our high and public
schools. If our excellent minister of
education for Ontario could tell tho
number of teachers who lose their situations each year on the vague general
charge that they "cannot keop order,"
the figures would throw a flood of light
on family training in this province.
Why is it so diflicult to keep order i
Simply because young Tomkins has
never been kept in urder nt home.
The young scamp has always done just
as he pleased at home, and now he
thinks he ought to do just as he pleasea
in school. He haa trampled upon
everybody and everything in hia father's house, and now he expects co
trample upon his teacher in the school
house. That is exactly how the matter stands. Too often the trustees take
the part of young Tomkins. Perhaps
old Tomkins is rich, or he iB connected
with some of the trustees in business,
or some of them want his vote and influence, or their wives are on very in*
timate terras with Mrs. Tomkins. The
teacher, perhaps a young woman supporting a widowed mother, or helping
to support a poor family, has no
friends. Perhaps she is a hundred
miles from home. Anyway, slie is
only a poor teacher. It is much easier
to dismiss a poor teacher than offend
Tomkins and Mrs. Tomkins. So these
manly and enlightened guardians of
our educational interests meet and dismiss the teacher on the general charge
that ihe "cannot keep order." It
makes one's blood boil to think that
such abominable tyranny and injustice
can exist and grow on public money,
but such cases occur every day. Cases
have been known in which Tomkins
senr. was a member of the board himself, and the teacher was dismissed because he or she could not control Tomkins junr, Tomkins dismissed the
teachur because his own ion was a
young Arab or his own daughter an
ill-bred, impertinent fledgling! It
would perhaps be wicked to take any
satisfaction from the faot that the day
of retribution soon somes to the Tomkins family, Tomkins junr. and Miss
Tomkins soon bring the Tomkins family to disgrace nnd thu worst feature of
the case is that their own conduct perhaps helped them to bring in thi
shame.
Teachers of Ontario, put the "bud'
on Tomkins junr. Put it on vigorously. Put it on if you should walk out
of the school houso to-morrow. A
rigorous application of the "bud" on
the youthful members of the Tomkins
family for 1880 will do tho country
more good than the N.P. over did.
Tomkins aud Father explains why
some families go so irregularly to
church. Arnot says the finest sight
on this side of Heaven is a large, intelligent, devout congregation assembled for worship. It is a fine sight,
and the finest part of it is a long pew
with a solid-looking man at ono end, a
fine motherly-looking woman at the
other, and a row of handsome, well-
behaved children between them. The
name of that family is not Tomkins,
The heads of that family train their
children on the Abrahamic principle,
and when then children grow up to
manhood and womanhood these parents
will have their reward. They will
hare a higher reward farther on.
Tonkins and Father explains why
crowds of half-grown boys and girls
are seen gadding about on tho streets
of our cities aad towns at unseasonable
hours. The youthful members of the
family go out and come in when they
pluase. The house is too small to hold
them at night, and the result quite
frequently is that some of them get
shut up in a good deal smaller room
than any room in the Tomkins homestead.
Tomkins and Father explains why a
very largo proportion of the convicts
in the Kingston penitentiary are very
young men—some of them mere boys,
Tomkins would not control his family,
perhaps Mrs. Tomkim would not allow
him to do io—and the sheriff undertook the duty for him. That is how it
too often ends.
A goad thing to do at the beginning
of thu year would be to change the
name and style of this firm. Instead
of Tomkim and Father, make it Tomkins and Son with all that change im-
pliM.—Canada Prsshyterian.
