The Father or the Fraser.
A unique petition is about to be
presented to the Governor-General
in Council, this being for a grant of
money in recognition of the services
rendered by the pioneer explorer
and British trader to establish posts
in British Columbia. The petitioner
is Miss Harriet Fraser, of St. Andrews, in Stonnont County. She is
the only surviving daughter of Simon Fraser, who died at St. Andrew's
twenty five yeara ago, and for whose
exploits "reward is now sought.
This gentleman bad been employed
by the Northwest Fur Trading Com
pany, nnd in 1802 became a partner
in it. In 1805 Mr. Fraser took part
in the conference of the leading
members of the company who met
at Fort William to consider the project of extending their operations
beyond the Rocky Mountains and
of occupying the country westward
to the ocean in advance of the
American traders who had then
penetrated as far north as the Columbia river and were eagerly pushing their way further up the coast.
The members of the company having decided to extend their out-posts
across the Rocky Mountains and to
establish trading connections with
the tribes of Indians west of tho
mountain ranges, his partners deputed Mr. Fraser to undertake the
task of exploring that region, Mr.
Fraser's diary shows that he left
Fort William on his long and perilous adventure in August, 1805, pass
ing through the Lake of the Woods,
Lake Winnipeg, up the Saskatchewan, past Cumberland House, then
up English River as far as Isle la
Croix. Up Buffalo Lake, then over
Portage La Cache into the Artha-
bnska, up Peace River to the top of
the mountains to a place which he
named the Rocky Mountain Portage
where he left two clerks, Mr. James
McDougall und Mr. Archibald
McGillivray, and twelve men in
charge. He then continued his
route with six men to Lake McLeod
so named by him, where he left
three men to form acquaintance
with the Indiana. In the year 1806
having r8turnHl"to~tlre rutuige fur
additional men, Mr. Fraser penetrat
ud westward to tho Fraser River,
which receives its name from him,
as its discoverer. He explored the
Stewart River, calling it after John
Stewart, a clerk who was with him,
and at a distance of 120 miles from
its mouth he established a trading
post, leaving Stewart and two men
in charge, calling the place "New
Caledonia." Continuing his exploration westward he established another post at Fraser's Lake. The
dispatches he sent to Fort Artha-
baska gave increased iterest to his
undertaking, and he was pressed to
push on to the ocern and trace out
the Fraser River, which at first he
supposed was a branch of the Columbia. In tho fall of 1807 two
canoes with goods, in charge of
Messrs. Quesuel and Ferris, wero
Bent to his assistance. They brought
letters urging Mr. Fraser to continue
his explorations and tp occupy the
country in advance of the Americans,
as Lewis and Olark had in the previous year gone down the Columbia
River, ana were extending the
authority of the republic through
that region. And John Jacob As-
tor was also enlarging his operations
northward. In the summer of 1807
Mr. Parser built another trading
house on tlio Fraser river in about
latitude 54. In May 1808 he started from Stewart Lake with four
canoes and sixteen men traversing
the Fraser river to the ocean. The
Indiana of the interior had never
before seen "pale faces" and it required great prudence and skill to
avoid a conflict and eventually to
win their friendship. The Northwest Fur Company having thus added what is now British Columbia to
their sovereignty it remained under
thoir control till the fusion of that
company with the Hudson Hay Company in 1821, and thirty-seven
years after it became n Crown Colony. After the retirement of Mr.
Fraser, from the company he was
offered" tho honor of knighthood
in recognition of his services.
His circumstances did not, however,
warrant the acceptance of a title,
and he died extremely poor, leaving
his family unprovided for. Tlie
petitioner and two brothers are now
the sole survivors. The petition concludes, "Remembering the advantages gained by the neighboring
republio in all our diplomatic
controversies touching the' boundary line between the two countries from the State of Maine
line in tho east to the San Juan
boundary in the west, can it be
claimed that had British traders
not occupied the country west of
the Rooky mountains in advance of
the Americans, we  should  to-day
have the Pacific ocean for our western boundary, and should possess
within our Confederation the fine
province of British Columbia! Canada has never been ungratrful to
those sons who have secured advantages for their country, and
your petitioner, therefore, hopes
thnt some recognition of the father's
services mny over now be shown by
making provision for the support of
his only surviving daughter."

In another column will be found
the verdict of the coroner's jury
which haa been for some weeks enquiring into the cause of the Nanaimo explosion. The 'jury finds, it
w PfTSe" Jeen, the t the explosion arose
from carelessness. Thii it what
might have been expected, because
in these modern time* the conditions
prevailing in coal mines are to well
understood that if proper care were
alwayi exercised an explosion would
be almost impossible. People who
live in an atmosphere of danger become to familiar with it that they
are apt to relapse into a condition
of carelessness which too often results in disaster. It is to be hoped
the painful lessons of the Nanaimo
explosion may have a letting benefit, and thai inch safeguards will be
■doped as to prevent a repetition
of it.

When bar1 ootemporary of the
Vancouver; Herald presumes to
speak for British Columbia he ought
to be careful of Ms facts'. In his
issue of Friday he takes the Toronto
Mail to task for stating that the
disallowance agitation it extending
to British Columbia, "The disallowance agitation has not yet com-
menoed here," says our ootemporary,
"and- there is so far no sign of its
earning." Thii is not true. The
agitation against disallowance in
British Columbia was commenced
before either our cotemporary or
Vancouver hid a name or an existence, and it has so far progressed in
the district of Westminster that our
district member, although a supporter of Sir John Macdonald, felt
himself constrained to vote against
it Throughout this district there
ii widespread dissatisfaction at the
policy hitherto ponged by the Do
minion government in disallowing
provincial railway charters.. The
board of trade of thii oity, which is
a representative and influential
body, is distinctly opposed to it, and
the poKcy is oppoeed to the general
interests of the district. There it
no community on the mainland that
would not gladly welcome a change
of policy in thu respect, except,
perhaps, the eity of Vanoouver,
And if the oity of Vancouver knew
where its interests lay, it wonld opposedlsallowano* too. The construction, of the Westminster Southern Bailway would connect Vancouver at well u Wettmintter with the
railway systems of the Sound, and
through them with the whole American railway system. The Herald
may represent Vancouver opinion
on thit question, but it certainly
does fpot represent the opinion of
the district or the mainland. The
J«**J is quite fright/
Commerelal Union.
'After a very long a full discussion
the Toronto hoard of trade has declined to endorse commercial union
between Canada and the United
States. But it ia by no meant dear
that a majority of the members of
the board were of opinion that commercial onion pure and aimple would
b* injurious to Canadian interests.
The consideration which influenced
the vote to a large extent is explicitly stated in the resolution. It it
thia: "That thii board cannot entertain any proposal which would place
Great Britain at any disadvantage
at compared with the United States,
or which would tend in any meat-
ore,' however small, to weaken the
bonds which bind Canada to the
empire." Thu resolution, which
wai carried, ahowt clearly enough
thai members of the board of trade
might vote against commercial union
while believing that it wonld benefit
the trade of the country. It wa*
not considerations oi trade that determined the vote, bufa consideration of loyalty to the motherland.
Bat while declining to commit itself
to commercial anion, the board
really did more than record a nega
tive opinion on the principle involved. It declared "that the largest
possible freedom of commercial in-
terooant between onr own oountry
and 'the United States, compatible
with onr relation! to Great Britain,
ii deiirablf." Thii il explicitly
afflrming 'that commercial onion
would be a benefit to the country if
it did Mt conflict with the loyal al-
letnane* of Canadians to Greet Britain. No advocate of commercial
union could have desired a more
poEitive endorsement of hit theory.
It hrey he proper to uy that a ma-

On the keen lookout lor something to
write, your correspondent made his way
Into tho engine house of a great railroad.
Be found spicy material for his purposo,
nml hopes his enjoyment will be shared
by his readers.    ...
Eight smoking engines were standing
at their several stations, and the firemen
were busy cleaning up. A group ot men
were standing near one of the engines
seemingly with nothing to do.
It teolf bets gumce to toll they were
engineers, and I approached with the
idea or hearing some ot their yarns.
" We've got nostories to tell youhere,"
sulci one ot the men. " We never have
hair-breadth escapee, and always run on
lime."
" But some time or other yon most
have met with some interesting episode
while on the road, some fast run, narrow
escape, where, but for your presenile ot
mind, the train would have been wreoked.
Can't you recall any!"
I pride myself on being a good Interviewer, let mo say.
" Say, boys, we can tell a tew yarns,"
said an old engineer. "Here you"—
turning to me-" make yourself comfortable on this engine, and you fellows
tust sit down somewhere, and we'll kill
Imebytelllng stories. We'll Just light
our pipes ana make ourselves comfnrt-
ablo tor awhile. Mow, shall I begin?
Jack Jones, you get reedy to follow."
Pipes were lit and ell waited for the
first story. The teller waited for some
time, sending out huge clouds of tobaooo
smokewhile thinking, and then said:
"I've got it, boy.
" Some years ago I was nn engineer on
the Atchison, Topeka and Bants Fe Ball-
road, and ww attached to the null .train
running from Topeka to Santa Fe, a
distance of about 760 miles.
" lly partof ths trip was irom Santa
Fe toKlt Carson, the Junction, where I
would rest a day and then bring the returning train back.
"The country, down there Is very
mountainous and wild and Is mads dangerous by a number of circumstances,
chief among them being the washouts
that frequently take place In the Spring
after the thaws and Spring nine.
" The time ot my story was in the
Spring, and the usual wet weather had
lasted about ten days. Up to that time
we had not experienced much trouble

expected. .
"WeU, we left auto M early tno
Tuesday morning—I remember It was
Tuesday, because the fireman, who was
my nephew, waa to be married two days
later, and that was a Thursday.
"The train was composed of one
sleeper, a drawing-room oar, two baggage
cars, the mall car and two passenger
care.  The train wu well tilled.
" We made good time, and all Went
well until about noon, and we were'
about getting through the Botan mountains. Suddenly Jim—that's the fireman
—asked me to look back and see what I
could snake out tn {the distance. I glanced

and cried out:
" • It's a washout The water from

" I had my hand on the lerer st the

then wont out What could It mean?
Someone must be right on the traok.
" Thoughts flashed through my mind
like lightning, and then as quick w
thought I shut off steam and put the
brakes hard on. The train slid for some
distance to the bridge.
" Both the fireman and I got down,
and tho first thing we discovered ww
that the bridge haa been washed away.
We had stopped Just in time or you
newspaper men would have had a good
story of a big railroad accident,
"We not hunted round .to see who

track to walk across the bridge and found
it washed away; knowing our train ww

" He had no lantern, but managed to
find a match In hie pooket
" Just as he turned to walk tn our
direction he heard the train coming on

wind blew out, but I saw lt, and ths
lives of a hundred persons were saved."
HOQ SLAUOHTIBINO W1IH A TOKUUN0&
Frank Fry, a man of about 34 years of
age, ot medium height, told the next
yarn.
He wu formerly an engineer on the
Southern Foclflc and used to run a
Western bound train through Colorado
one day and-return the next.   He said:
" Xou may have heard ot the peccaries,
Whioh are a wild species ot hog and
abound In the South. The little brutes
ere noted tor their pluck, and If once attacked will fight on and on until all aro
exterminated.
" One day while seated In the cab with
my hand on the lover and keeping a good
lookout ahead, I saw in the distance a
■herd ot some kind ot small' animals
playing right on the track. I did not
take much notice of them, thinking
that when we got nearer they would
hear or see us coming and olesr out of
the way.
"In this, however, Iww very muoh
mistaken; for when they uw us, instead
of running away, ther formed two or
throe lines, standing close together right
across the tracks. I gave a whistle,
thinking to scare them away; but no,
there they stood like a little army, determined to fight.
" There was nothing to do but run
through them, so I Just put on a little
more steam, and we charged down on
this battalion ot peccaries. They never
budged an Inch, and the train cut right
through them, killing a large number ot
them.
" Those that were unhurt rushed madly
at the carriages w they flew poet, and
many more were cut up under ths
wheels.
"I did not think muoh ot them after
we had passed, and merely gave a glance
at the dead porkers scattered over the
traok. Coming Mok on the retain train

next day, I ww very much astonished to
see those that were left of the herd unhurt by the previous day's light standing
In the same place.~ ="     ■    E
"Ab soonw they heard us coming
they raised themselves In battle
array and ws had to eut through
them .again, killing a large number. As
we came up they became frantic; they
rushed at the cowcatcher and wheels,
only to be killed.
" Thia exploit rather Interested me,
and the next day, eureenough, then they
were again, anil the

"This went on day after day until only
three were .left. Theee three ranged
themselves w the others hsd done, and
we bore down on them.

" I wss fireman on tho Cincinnati,

: "'One cold November night my engineer suddenly turned mad w we wen

I'm not exaggerating a bit when I tell
you that his eyes looked like coals ot

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(X,Z*ACZT3SZ>.)
ON THB I0TH OF JANUARY, 1687,
tho Colombian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purohaicd by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster! to be known as tlio
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern lias been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tbe British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster.
Viotoria and Vanoouver. Tlio object of
tlio new company is to continue the publication of the British Columbus newspaper and carry on a general printing aud
pnjilfching concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of. the Mainland. Thore will 1» no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be en*
tirely independent Id both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the publio interest.
The concern Is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this eity
having been taken over by Mr. T. 11.
Pearson, who will continue to carry ft on
in Ida own name and for his own benefit.
It U desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this eity, and
the new company asks for publio patronage on the ground that It is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
enconsistt with its professions. In con*
sequence of this business change all ac-
connts duo the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
olosed. Address all communications and

An Imfostant Decision.—A Dual
decision has been reached in the now
celebrated case of Langtry vs. Dou-
moulin, which arose out of a' dispute
about the disposal of the revenues of
St. James' Cathedral, Toronto. These
revenues, arising from ancient endowments, now amount to over $20,-
000 a year, and action was taken to
divert a portion of them to other|rectors
whose incomes were limited. Acts
were passed with this viow, but were
declared unconstitutional by the Can
adian courts. The imperial privy
council has just confirmed the finding
of the Canadian courts, and the effort
to divert the revenues of St. James
hu been fruitless.

Tbe Harris Tragedy.
CRAWFORD ARRAIGNED FOR THE MURDER.
Alcionder Crawford was nrraigncd;
iu the police court before T. C. Atkinson, J. P., this afternoon, charged
with tho murder of James Harris nt
Ladners Landing on the Uth of January last. The prisoner pleaded not
guilty. Mr. Corbould, of Corbould
& McColl, appeared on behalf of the
prisoner, and Supt. Roycraft conducted the examination for the crown. The
examination will be long and tedious
and was not concluded to-day, but
in all probability the prisoner will be
Bent up to Btnnd his trial at the next
assizes. No now developments have
boon revealed in tho examination so
far which wero not elicited from witnesses at the trial of Leo & Freund at
lut assizes. The circumstances of the
murder and tho trial of Leo & Freund
for the crime aro yet too fresh in the
memory of ourreadcra to ncedllarrntion.
Mr. Alex. MoFarlane, who had lived
with the prisoner for four years previous to the murder, states that the
prisoner is of a quiet disposition. Supt.
Roycraft has in his possession the
bloody clothes he discovered bolow the
floor of Crawford's bedroom and will
produce them u evidence. TJie examination was adjourned at 4 o'clock
until to-morrow ot 11.
A Merited Token.
t'apl. White Presented vf lib a Diamond
rm.
OaptF. White, of the str; Rithet, had
just got out of hia berth and was taking an airing on tho 0. P. N. wharf
this morning, when he wu met by Mr.
E. S. Scoullar and Dr. H. M. Cooper,
who told him they Wished to see him
un business. Of course the obliging
captain was at their disposal, and led
the way to the cabin of the steamer.
He was not a little surprised, however,
when his visitors proceaded to read the
following address;
To Capt. White.—On behalf of the
Sassengers who were on board the str.
lithot ou her trip from Victoria to Westminster ou the 22nd and 23rd inst, wo
present you with this diamond pin as a
token of our appreciation of your ability
and carefulness during tho heavy storm
which we encountered in those days,
fully realizing that to your ability and
the courage and skill of your chief en-
Sineer,  James  McArthur,  we  are in-
ebted for being brought safoly through
the perils which surrounded us on that
trip.
Signed on behalf of tho passengers,
H, M. CoorER,
J. A. Laidlaw,
Ii, B. Scoullae,
C, M. McNaughten,
C. M. Bonson,
H. S. Glanmin,
The captain had received no intimation of the object of his guests.    He
was equal to the occasion, however,
and responded in the following manner;
Gentlemen,—It is very gratifying to
Mr. McArthur and myself to receive this
token of your esteem and confidence.
Aside from its intrinsic value, the assurance that you givo ns that we have done
onr duty, ia moat gratifying of all. Aa
speeches of real gratitude come from the
heart alone they are liable to contain very
few words. I will simply say: I hope 1
may never betray your trust or shake tho
confidence you have reposed in mo; and
in years to come in which I hope to have
the pleasure of carrying you many a
journey, I can point with pride to thia
souvenir of your appreciation. Gentle*
men, I thank you kindly.
The pin is a very handsome one.
The design is a plain round piece of
gold, in tho centre of which ia set a
very brilliant diamond. Capt. White
is justly proud of the gift

A Badly Planted Shot.
VERDICT OH THENaNMatO CATASTROPHE.
On Friday night the coroner's jury
concluded its enquiry into the cause of
the Nanaimo coal mine disaster, and
returned the following verdict;
We find that John Linn came to his
death on the 3rd of May, at tho foot
of No. 1 shaft in the city and district
of Nanaimo. and province of British
Columbia, from the effects of afterdamp caused by nn explosion, and that
the said explosion was caused by the
firing of an unprepared nnd badly
planted shot in the face of the diagonal slope, thereby igniting what gos
had accumulated or wus circulating in
the air in its immediate vicinity and
intensified by tile addition of coal dust
That a large volume of air waa introduced into tho mine, but that inasmuch
as inflammablo gas could be generally
found on tho roof in some high
places, tho distribution of tho air was
was faulty in tlioso high places.
That in viow of the fact of its being an acknowledged dry and dusty
mino and that coal dust is a recognized
factor in colliery explosions, we submit that necessary precautions have
not been observed for minimizing the
probabilities of a catastrophe.
In rendering tho above verdict wo
wish it to be distinctly understood that
we do not wish to attribute nny criminal negligence to anybody.
We hold it. our duty to assist in trying to prevent a recurrence of such a
disaster as we liave hod under our consideration, und would suggest the system of appointment now in use respecting the inspector of mines and
firemen bo abolished, ns it ia fraught
with evil. We wish it to bo understood that in speaking thus we refer
to only the manner or system of appointment and not na convoying any
reflection upon the present inspector
of mines.
In our opinion all firemen should
have passed a board of examination,
qualifying themselves for their responsible positions, said board to consist of
tho managers and mines' inspector of
tho different collieries in the district.
When passed they become eligible to
election—electors to be the men whose
lives would in a measure be in the
hands of tho elected. We believo the
above plan would be productive of
harmony between employers and employees.
That the men holding the highly
important positions of inspector und
firemen should he well paid for their
grave responsibilities, their duties
sharply defined, and held accountable
for their shortcomings.
That a force be detailed for daily
examination of all the old workings,
and all the coal filled from the faeo.
Wo wish to congratulate you, Mr.
Coroner, upon the ablo, impartial and
very corteous manner iu whioh you
have presided at this inquest and wo
desire to endorse every notion you
have taken in the matter.
