PROVINCIALJ.ECISLATURE.
On Wednesdny Hon. Mr. Robson moved thnt the houso do resolve
into a committee of the whole to
consider  certain proposed amendments to the licensing acts.    His
object, the mover said, was to increase the price of liquor licenses,
for rural licenses from $30 to $60
for six months, and for town licenses
from $100 to $200 for'same period.
Public sentiment, he thought, hnd
been drifting for some time in the
direction of high license, and that
the increased price would not weigh
unduly upon any person.   The ox-
act -figures could of course be fixed
in committee,     Seconded by Mr.
Dingwall.     Mr. T. Davie said he
was  not in  fuvor of high license,
although were the question of prohibition or restriction of the sale of
liquor beforo thc house he might be
inclined to. take a more modified
stand.    He thought where the sale
of liquor   was  recognized tlie in-
crease  of   cost  of  license would
* place the traflic in the hands of
those who were the more wealthy.
To a certain extent the traffio might
be considered a vice, and this action
would make that vice a monopoly,
and he could not see in the present
state of affairs that this legislation
was called for.    In view of these
opinions he Bhould oppose tho resolution.     Mr.   McLeese  took   the
same view, and said the proposed
measure would operate against wayside and other houses in the interior,
against which ho had heard no complaints.    The increase of the opium
liconse showed   that with  that increase the revenue from the source
decreased.     The drug was largoly
consumed in Ins district, but, in
spite of rewards, detection of any
evusion of the law wns diflicult. He
thought  in  this case the extra cost
of licenso would prevent mnny from
longer carrying on tho business and
also   enoourngo   tho  illicit  snle of
liquor.    Mr. Semlin said the rise in
the cost of licenses would be as predicted, that  many  would  hnve to
close up their houses of accomodation entirely against thc traveling
public, and the illicit sale of liquor
become too groat for effectual suppression in   tiie country districts.
Messrs. Grnnt, Wilson and Helges-
on spoke in n similar strain.   Mr.
McTavish thought the opposition to
high licenso might be explained by
the near approach of the elections.
He was in favor of high license,
nnd would support the motion, Mr.
Ounninghnni  wns in favor of any
legislation that would restriot the
liquor traflic.     The object of tho
resolution was n good one. Although
large sums of money had been spent
in  this province, we had a great
many poor men—the  money had
gone into the hands of the liquor
dealers.    A business in which the
profits were so large ought to contribute largely to the public revenue.
The house might not be willing to
face tho question now, but the time
was coming when the voice of the
people  would   make itself  heard.
The Hon. Mr. Davie said the municipalities had power to regulate tliis
matter, and he thought it might
safely be left in their hands.   He
was not in favor of increasing the
license   in   inland   districts.     He
would not bo acting in accordance
with the wish of the constituency he
represented if he suppprted the resolution. Mr. Orr saw no reasou to increase the license fees. Mr. Raybould
Baid the discrimination mado in the
cost of rural ns opposed to metropo
litan licenses showed that the necessity for a distinction was recognized
and the question might be whether
the desired maximum cost of those
licenses had beon nrrived at,   It
would not be a hardship to those
keeping hotels, being able, with the
increase of their trade, to pay the
extra cost.    As for the excuse that
a monopoly would bo created, the
trade was already a monopoly, because not everyone was allowed a
license even how.   He should support  the   resolution,    Hon.   Mr.
Smithe was sorry to hnvo to raise a
point of order against a colleague,
but he was inclined to think tho
resolution waa out of order, because
it.proposed to introduce an amendment to the licensing acts when no
such acts had been passed this session;  and   also another objection
wns that this wns a question affecting the reveuuo—imposing additional burdens upon certain classes in
the community and he took it that
such was beyond the province of a
private member    Speaking individually, apart from the point of order,
his own opinion was that whatever
might  bo the views of  honorable
members   as   to  high   licenso, ho
agreed  with the honorable mamW
for Saanich that this wns not a vory
nppropriate time to bring in this
resolution,   though  not becnuso of
the   reason  which  thnt honorable
gentleman had given, but because it
wus probable  that at the ensuing
election tho question would be made
a prominent one, nud thnt cundi-,

dates would have to express themselves on this question, and those
returned ta members of the house
would know exactly the views of
their constituents oil the subject,
until which time it would be better
to defer! any action! in this respect.
He would like tbe speaker to decide
on this point of order. Hon. Mr.
Robson said that perhaps he should
have mentioned at the beginning of
his remarks that he was moving in
the matter as a private member and
in accordance with the concensus of
publie opinion in hii district, and
had not therefore deemed it necessary to consult his colleagues on the
subject. The speaker ruled the
resolution out of order. In the first
place no resolution jt-jal^ be int
duced whibn propoeil to deal *1
a bill which had not' been enacted
tliat session, aud in the next place
no private member had a right to
introduce a measure which in any
way affected the revenue of the
country,
On Thursday a long debate took
place on the Sumas dyking amend-
ment bill.    Mr. Drake did not see
how the dyking acts could be repealed without interfering with vetted
rights.   If it were a matter between
Mr. Sword and the settlers, it might
be arranged in several ways, but
Mr. Sword had borrowed money on
the  strength  of the arrangement
made by the government, and these
arrangements must not be broken
up.   It was almost universally conceded that when charters are granted the integrity of these charters
should not be set aside. The settlers
had neglected their own duty in this
matter, and now asked to be relieved of responsibility that they had
brought on themselves.    Hon. Mr.
Davie did not see why the act of
1883 corld not be repealed by mutual consent, but he would oppose
that portion of the bill which proposed to repeal the act of 1878. Mr.
Galbraith mentioned some circumstances connected with the dyking
scheme, and said that if the act of
1883 were   repealed   the   settlers
would be a great deal worse off than
they were now,   Mr. Sword had invested his all in the venture, and as
against that the settlers had expended some 82,000 or $3,000.   He
thought the only solution was this':
The wholo matter   involved some
$8,000 as a charge upon the land,
and as the whole thing had been admittedly n failure, and ns the land
acquired by Mr. Sword was valueless, ho should say the government
should seriously consider   whether
they should not advance the sum,
relieve the settlers and do justice to
Mr. Sword by allowing him to complete the work and retrieve what he
had lost,    Mr. Orr said not for one
single yonr since the passage of the
dyking aet had the overflow of the
Fraser been  checked   over   these
lands.   It was known that two or
three days after the works had been
reported upon as having been completed in accordance with plans aiid
specifications, the whole of the works
gavo way.   As long as the act was
in force, or its provisions were continued, the settlers could not sell
their land.   On account of the certificate of tho engineer,  who was
placed in charge after Navarre left,
government granted to Sword 6,000
acres of tho land which, with all the
land, was valuable to a certain extent, and as the land around it hud
been improved it had become more
valuable and could, he supposed, be
sold in the market for $10 an acre.
He thought the 6,000 acres granted
by the government was quite sufficient to reimburse Mr. Derby for
useless expenditure on an inefficient
work, and he should vote for the
second reading of  this bill.   Mr.
Allen said if the house were satisfied that it had made a mistake in
1883, it should have the courage to
remedy the mistake,   He thought
nn injustioe had been done to the
settlers,   Hon.   Mr. Smithe went
over the history of the Sumas dyking scheme, and said he believed
there  had  been  wrongs  on both
sides. Thore was, perhaps, no single
person so much entitled to sympathy
as Mr. Sword.     If thc scheme proposed hy him had been carried out,
he would have boen a < wealthy, and
successful man, and ihe whole of
Matsqui prairie would have been
greatly   increased  in   value.    He
thought the Act should not be interfered with without serious consideration. It was not possible for persons not acquainted with the facts
to know what effect a very slight
amendment might have on the parties concerned.    It wai difficult to
fix any particular date for the com.
pletion of a work like this, for there
are obances which no person might
forsco.    Immediately after the acceptance of the work a higher wnter
than was known before swept the
dyke away just as it wub being completed. It would not be fair if these
gentlemen   who  had   riskod their
means for tho benefit of tho settlers
us well as themselves, should havo
no consideration under the circumstances."   Notwithstanding the taking over of the dyke, it was never
completed, and the promoters forfeited all right to the claims they
put forward.    They had come to
the house for an extension of time.
But the chief commissioner no longer
possesses the powor of granting the
request, and ho thought the act was
a very fair attempt not to do wrong
to tho settlors, but to relieve thom
of responsibility und liabilities, The
act of 1883 did so relieve them that
they are not liable under it to pay

When the third reading of the
bill to incorporate Vancouver came
on, it was found that a change of
sentiment bad come over the members of the house, and the bill was
carried by a vote of 13 to 7. Tt is
just as well for the house that it
did not undertake to curry out the
proposals of some of its members,
and throw the bill out on account
of tlie name given to the new city
The people of the mainland have
good memories, and do not forget
things ut once. Any such hostile
manifestations on the part of the
house might produce a feeling of
hostility that could not easily ho
dispelled.
Wo did not supposo that anything
would come of the resolution introduced into the legislature proposing
to restrict thc liquor traflic. The
speeches of members on this resolution, therefore, do not disappoint
us. A majority of tho members of
the present house seem to imagine
that houses of public entertainment
cannot be conducted without the
adjunct of a saloon, Some of them
actually protested ugainst Sunday
closing because it might prevent
people from getting whiskey after
attending church! When men of
such ideas are entrusted with power
to make our laws, we need not look
for any reform that will promote
the moral welfare of the province.
The Estimates.
In another column we publish n
detailed statement of the principal
items of the estimates for thc financial year beginning on the first of
July next   It will bo seen that the
total revenue anticipated  is placed
at $5.7.6,161, and the expenditure at
$710,524   This is exclusive of the
supplementary estimates, which will
doubtless increase the expenditure
to an appreciable extent.    The sum
set down for public works is small)
than lasfr.yearby 877^0^0,* . Out in
last ye-At's estimates there  was a
sum of $40,000 for Victoria giol
$5,000 for a new school liouso at
Victoria, §10,700 for the completion
of New Westminster gaol, and $2Q,-
000 for Lillooet roads and bridges,
in which the Marble Canon road was
included.      These   large   items  in
themselves made a sum equal almost
to the dilTerenco between.tjiji appropriations for public works for the
two years.     This year tliere are no
expensive gaol or school houses to
be erected.    The only costly building on the list is a new Court House
for Victoria, for which the sum of
825,000 is set down.   Indeed this is
the only item in the list to which
we feel disposed to take decided exception. At the risk of beinjr charged
by the Colonist with sectionalism,
we venture to say that Victoria has
a court house and   a high school
building a hundred per cent, better
than those in this city,  and if the
government had §25,000 to spare for
buildings, it it ought to have been
placed where it was needed most.
The New Westminster high school
building is a disgrace to any city
and any government.     We have
hitherto refrained from calling upon
the government to replace it, because there were so many pressing
demands elsewhere for money.   But
we arc sure every person acquainted
with Victoria court houso and the
high school building and court house
in this   city,  will admit that the
825,000   mentioned   has  not been
placed where it ought to be. Granite
Oreek comes into notice this year,
and gets an appropriation of 83,000
for government buildings, as well as
$2,000 for gold commissioner and
stipendiary magistrate,  81,500 for
reoorder and collector, 81,200 for
•constable and collector, and $1,800
for mounter] constable; in all, $0,200.
For the New  Westminster branch
railway £37,000 appears. This is, of
course, a setoff against the bind
bonus given to tho syndicate for the
purpose of taking the road to Coal
Harbor.    In the general interest of
the province it is quite as important
that the road should come hore as
that it should go to Knglish  Bay,
and   the   contribution   is   nothing
more thuu au uct of justice.     The
appropriation for roads and bridges
in thia   district has been reduced
from $25,000 to $20,000,  which is
quite as largo a sum  as could  bo
looked for under the circuinstances.
While there it no district in the
province whoro roads are more needed  than   in the district   of New
Westminster, we suppose the extraordinary revenue embraced in tho
dry dock refund must be exhausted,
and the. peoplo will have to be content with such appropriations as can
he  secured  out  of  tho ordinary,
revenue.
A Large Difference.
Although particulars of the return showing all transactions between the provincial government
and members of the house have
been known for a week, it was not
until the other day that the Victoria Times ventured to make any
reference to them. And what a
reference! When it became known
that Mr. Cunningham had been
furnishing supplies to the government, the Tillies seemed quite unable to contain itself with indignation. Tho transaction was, in its
opinion, a monstrous outrage upon
all decency, and both Mr. Cunningham and the government must setl'cr
punishment. But with the other
return it is very different, In this
return Mr. (Jrant, one of the owners of the Times, is shown to have
furnished to thc government, through
himself and tho firms with which
ho is connected, goods aud work
for which 8709.63 was received.
The Times says thero is "nothing
startling" in the return, and even
waxes merry over it. The smnll-
ness of the sums received by opposition members compared to the
sum rccehed by Mr. Cunningham's
firm is taken as a strong mitigating
circumstance, and the fact is referred to that none of these firms
supplied axe handles at a dollar
apiece I Neither did Mr. Cunningham, and the Times repeats what it
knows to bo incorrect. We believe
tlio supplies furnished by Mr. Cunningham were obtained at fair
prices, and in some instances the
prices were certainly very small
We have no reason to suppose that
in any of the other cases overcharges have occurred. Mr. Grant
is entitled to the benefit of the
same charitable views of liis case
that have beon put forward in thc
case of Mr. Cunningham. But we
must protest against the manifest
partiality exhibited by the Times
in its effort to blacken a political
opponent and whitewash a political
friend. Tlie amount of these transactions is uot the vital point at all.
The member who sold the government goods to the value of 81, contrary to the spirit of independence,
is just us guilty and as much a
transgressor as the man whoso bill
amounts to 81,000. lt is the prin
ciple and not the amount. If Mr,
.'Cunningham has done wrong, so has
Mr. Grant; and both are equally
deserving of public censure, it is
claimed that the act does not cover
such transactions as these at all.
Perhaps it does not. Acts of parliament are strange documents, especially acts of the British Columbia legislature. But if the law in
its present shape is imperfect, let it
be amended without delay so as to
prevent a repetition of the disclosures to which reference has beon
made this session. Mr. Cunningham asserts that his transactions
with thc government wero carried
on in good faith, in tho belief that
they did not infringe upon thc statutes. We accept his statement
without question, and it is quite
possible the others could make a
similar statement without reservation. But thc question is, should
tho law not prevent the possibility
of corrupt acts of this kind between
the members and the government 1
There may have been nothing corrupt in these transactions heretofore, but while they ure possible thc
door is open to corruption of the
grossest kind. This door should be
shut, and shut at once, and we hope
there will be no delay in making
the law perfect in this respect.
Ciesar's wife must be beyond suspicion. In this matter the Times
has shown itself singularly inconsistent and wanting in fairness aud
independence.

Port Hammond, Mar. 29.—Weather

like summer than spring, and farmers
are busily at work. Carleton & Harris
have put in a large Btock -of goods in
anticipation of a big trade this season.
An accident occurred last week which
might have resulted fatally but for the
timely assistance of Mr. Nelson and a
Kanaka in his employ. Two young
ladies attending Maple Ridge Bchool
were crossing a beaver dam nenr the
school on a log, nnd both fell into the
water, whioh was quite deep. Their
cries attracted the attention of Mr.
Nelson and his man, who succeeded in
extricating them from their uncomfortable and dangerous position.

Interior News.-*A correspondent
of the Sentinel says:* "New^ from the

The company intend shortly to increase their mill to 10 stamps. The

been very mild, tne cattle having wintered well. Mr, Abel from 111-Mile
Post returned by last train with a
'better half.' He is accompanied by 3
other families who intend starting in
tho dairy business. From present appearance a great number of settlers will
locate in that locality, and the Chilcotin Valley this summer. The only
thing that prevents settlement in Chilcotin is the Indians claim the best part
of the country and the consequence is
that settlers are kept away. It is about
time the Dominion authorities settled
this question. Freight in small quantities has commenced to arrive for the

Louis will leave the company's wharf
at the foot of Snail street every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday at 6
o'clock a.m. for Viotoria, making the
run of seventy-five miles in the unprecedented short time of 12 hours or
through by daylight, at tbe rate of six
and one quarter miles per hour, including stoppages. The steamers of
this line havo all been supplied with
the new patent tea-kettle boilers, and
have their furnaces fitted up for burning the slow combustion coal, so that
it ia impossible, through any careless-
ness of tne engineer, that an explosion
should occur; and further, the rato of
speed is such that all danger to life
and property, in tbe event of a collision, is avoided, and tourists have
ample time to enjoy the scenery.
Speed, safety, aud security, being the
paramount requisites in this age of
progress, the company trust that no
other hue will be to suicidal as to run
steamers, fitted up in t%% ordinary
manner, Itl opposition toMetr'boats.

—Com.
anything until the completion of the
work by the promoters Seme members argue thut the term "that no interest shall accrue" meant that it
should accrue but not be payable. Ho
did not undoritnnd it, but believed it
relieved them from any payment whatever until the work shall havu been
completed and the lands entirely and
successfully reclaimed from the overflow of water. He was of the same
opinion as In 1883, when he voted for
that act and thought he was doing the
settlers a benefit as well as the promoters, and strictly right. The settlers
are entitled to consideration, and he
could only regard this house as a private bills committee, nnd that those
who speak are doing su intelligently as
to the wishes of their constituents, and
if they do say that this act of 1883 is a
crushing wrong to them nnd is not in
their interest nnd want to be relieved
of it, then ho might fairly submit to
their opinion on this question and ac-I
cept their assertions. If they wish to
be relieved of the advantages which are
conferred on them by this act, then he
thought they are entitled to be so relieved.
Hon. Mr. Robson said he had not
given a vote on this question iu 1883,
feeling perplexed es to the real inward-
nesa of the question, but he distinctly
recollected that the bill of 1883 was
intended as a bill for the relief of the
settlers.   It had been introduced by
his honorable colleague (Mr. Orr) and
he had understood it to have been in
the interests of the settlers,   (Mr. Orr
—If it bad been carried as I introduced
it it would have been in their interest.)
Hon. Mr, Robson replied thnt whatever alterations might have been made
they had always been understood to
keep strictly in view tho interests of
the settlers.   The settlers should also
be assured that they were not liable
for any interest until the work was
successfully completed.     Before the
passage of the act of 1883, however,
they were liable.   He thought that inasmuch as the settlers themselves think
this bill a great hardship he was in
favor of the repeal of the act of 4893,
but no more. He was. of opinion, however, that the settlers wero under a
misapprehension regarding the effect of
the act of 1883.     The house would be
creating a very dangerous precedent by
passing an act repealing the original
dyking act.     The exact consequences
could not, perhaps, be enumerated,but
the possibilities of those consequences
could easily be foreseen.    It would be
a breach of faith with the parties to
that aet, but the repeal of the net of
1883 could be oftectod without ench'
brench.    This latter net repealed, the
remedies for the settlers would bo
either appeal to the court or application for such legislation as the house
could concede in fairness to both parties.     This was all it could do; but he
wished it could do more, for he knew
these settlers were his own constitu-,
ents, and were men who had struggled
hard to make homes for themselves.
While regretting, therefore, the hardships they felt, he did not believe an
evil should be remedied by the perpetration of a greater.    He could see no
other path of dnty open to him but in
voting for the second reading with the
understanding that the blundering and
unwarranted legislation of 1683 might
be corrected.
Thursday was consumed chiefly by a
discussion on the Vancouver waterworks bill and the Vancouver incorporation bill. Mr. Orr presented a petition from 500 people at Granville asking that the place be namedVancouver.
The house decided to let the name
stand.
"Vancouver."
Editor Colombian,*—I have not had
time to read the debate "Vancouver vs.
Granville," and do not, therefore, know
whether tlie reason whieh (it is understood) led tho C.P.R. Co, to choose the
name was emphasized or not. The name
"Vancouver" being mentioned, the
thoughts of any fairly well-informed person will turn at once to tliis quarter of
the world. The name, in fact, belongs
to us. In the selection of a name, what
point can for a moment compare in importance with this': That is the consideration wliich, I believe, governed the
Syndicate iu choosing the nnme; und
that consideration will settle the matter
in the mind of anyone who has thought
enough about the matter to give value to
tiis opinion. Ml.

best tobacco leaf in the world, it does
not grow equal qualities. The production even of adjoinh-g counties is often
quite different, the one producing leaf
whicli at once deteriorates if grown in
the other. The leaf of the "Myrtle
Navy" is the production of the choice
sections of the State, which, through
some combinations of local influence,
produce a better quality thau any others.
This Is shown by Its always commanding

Manic Itidge License Court.
EniTort Columiuan-.—Your correspondent and his critic had tlieir say in the
columns of your valuable paper.   Would
you please allow me thc same privilege
as the public arc desirous tlint I should
muke explanations?   I do not liko discussions of this kind nnd would have nothing to do with it had the critic, styled
"One of the Magistrates," given a fair
and impartial account of thc proceedings
of the hceusing court.   "One of the Magistrates" gives an array of "reasons"
which, ho says, "helped us iu our decision."   Allow ine to quote and comment
upon the "reasons" assigned.   "The petition did not contain the names of a
large number of our influential residents."
The number of our residents, all told, is
not what reasonable people call large.
Take 80 away, and tho number left will'
be small.    Who tbe "influential residents" are, perhaps "One of the Magistrates" will inform the public.    They
are certainly not known to ine; if they
were I would give them an opportunity
to sign the petition.   It is true that I
did not ask tlie Methodist preacher, the
J. Vs.', nor the four or fivo who belonged
to the temperance band, to sign the petition.   They need not take offence for
not being asked, as I considered they are
pledged not to sign petitions of this nature.   Neither should   the  magistrates
feel surprised not to find their names
there.   "It (the petition) -oiitaiiied the
names of many persons who had no right
to interfere in the mutter,"buch as minors
and railroad and lumber men, whe are
nut actual residents."   The petition contained the name of one minor and the
names of six railroad and lumber men
who did not reside here over   twelve
months.   These are the "many persons."
Be it so.   "One of the Magistrates" is
entitled to his opinion: he need not be
surprised if reasonable peoplo do not bolieve him. "The undue influence brought
to bear upon   those  whose signatures
wero solicited" (for the petition).   Allow
me to say that this is a deliberate perversion of the facts and an insult to the
people who signed the petition.   They
have intelligent opinions of their own,
and would not and could not be influenced by me, wore I to use the methods
imputed to me.   "The beartr of the petition was fortunate   to have his arm
sprained for   the occasion and went
around with it in a sling.   He was unable to work, the bread was taken out of
bis children's mouths, and many through
sympathy wore led to sign."   The viii-
dictiveness of the above caps the climax.
WHat does "One of  the Magistrates"
think when he openly states what ho
knows to be false.   I had the misfortune
of receiving a broken arm last January
from the effects of a fall.   It was some
timo after tbo accident beforo I thought
of going round with a petition, which I
had no intention whatever of getting up
until I was persuaded to do so by many
of my friends.   I mado no use of arguments imputed to me by "One of the
Magistrates," as the people who signed
the petition will at any time certify.
They are not simpletons as your readers
-would infer from the manner the critic
speaks  of   their  firmness.   "Many  of
these were acting against tlieir convictions, and afterwards told us that they
hoped no license would   bo granted."
Would "One of the Magistrates" como
out with the names of thoso who acted
against their convictions, or with   one
name 1  I challenge him to do it!   Why ,
should "One of the Magistrates" directly
charge the people with duplicity ?   They
signed the petition nbove board and will
do bo again if asked.   "Wo had in our

Mi career as a common sailor, said: "It
is manifest the steamer was more or
less at fault. The accident waa thc
result of carelessness. At least fifteen
passengers, who were on dock at ihe
time, told me they could distinctly sec
the vessul as she approached, nnd whnt
is more, thoy could sen Long Island,
seven miles distant. The weather wns
clear, and the wind only blow inn n fair
sailing breeze. In my opinion, the
vessel was headed athwurt on her
course. According to the rules of the
rond at sen, she hnd the right of tray
and it was the business ofthe steamer
to either fell oil'and let her pass to leeward of ui, or else check up and let
her cross our bows. Instead of this thu
''Oregon" forged ahead nt a full rate
of speed, and the schooner struok on
tho side stem on. Mr. Farwell said
the signals were inadequate. The
cannon could probably bo hoard twonty
rods distant. The sky rockets did not

granted, and signed by a lnrge number of
those whose names appear on this petition."    The petition referred  to was
signed in February, 1S85, aud was intended to prohibit tho granting of a license to Alex. Stevenson, of I'ort Hammond.   It contained the nnmes of about
4$, and was signed by minors and by
the members of the \V. C. T. U.   This
petition was uot addressed to the present
court.   By what authority the magistrates made use of it is better known to
themselves than to the publie.   Two of
the parties whose names appeared on it
objected to make use of their names on
this occasion, but were ordered by the
court to depart from   the court-room.
"We did not grant a license because of
the disreputable house which was kept
when they wero iu possession of n li-
c-wse.''   Tho above is a malicious libel,
which requires legal advice aud I will ro*
frain  here  from   making a  comment.
Now, Mr, Editor, allow mc Lo make a
fow remarks which  "One of tlie .Magistrates" knows to be true.   There wero
two applications beforo the court.   There
was a petition sie'icd by 80 iu support of
one of them.   The applications nud petition were read by the acting clerk.   Justice Howison produced a petition which
was made use of at a licensing court held
on the 15th March, 18S5.    Parties wlioio
names appeared ou this petition, wlm
were present nt the court now held, were
not allowed to express their viewn.    .iusi
tice Ferguson remarked Unit Joseph Ste!
ven and J. M. Webster told him tliat
although   they   signed   Levi's petition
they did uot wish a license to be granted.
Justice Laity said somu one told him
that he spoke to n man who signed Levi's
petition to get rid of lum.   Justico How-
lsou, who presided, asked what netion lie
was going to take.   This Justice replied,
stating tliat ho was aguinst ■■'■■iniiiu; n
license   Justice Laity waa asked n similar questiou.   Tliis Justice would prefer
not to express his views but to ndjonin
tlie court to give Justice Harris nn opportunity of attending.   Alter a little-lis*
mission it was decided not to adjourn.
Justice Laity then stated that under (he
oireiiinstance* he  would  vote with Justice Ferguson.    This closed the business
of the court,   f made it a point to interview Mr. tiii'vons and Mr. Webster, nnd
hoth parties llatly denied tho statetu-jiits
attributed to thnn by Justice Ferguson.
The "reasons" given   by "Oue of the
Magistrates," Mr. Editor, you will see
aro simply creations of bis imagination.
They weru uot made use of at the court.
They are, therefore, concocted to deceive
the public who aro not conversant with
the facts.   Why he has concocted such a
tissue of untenable   falsehoods is best
known to himself.   In tho name of common sense let ub have tho truth, Mr.
Magitrato, and do not mako yourself u
lai'ghing-stock to tho community whoso
opinions you profess so faithfully to represent. Thomas Lkvi.

Ottawa, March 20.—Tho Minister
of the Interior visits Winnipeg in July,
thence goes to McLeod country and
Oalgary, crossing to British Columbia

ench from Alberta and Saskatchewan.
It is improbable that increased legislation will be allowed Manitoba.
Si'Arn.E, March 23. — Industries

rioters to desist.
Lilian, March 20.—The reign of

night nnd carried nwuy its available
contents. Troops havo beon sent fmm
everywhere, and this part of the kingdom ia rapidly assuming the appearance

It is rumored that u refusal will probably result in a general strike and absolute suspension of business ovor the
whole Grand Trunk system.

worse.
. BttcssELS, March 27.—Midnight—
The city is iu a stato of wildest excitement growing out of the news of uprisings and riots in many parts of Belgium. Crowds of roughs are parading
the streets breaking windows and assaulting citizens. Tho police ure mnking most heroic exertions to disperse
tlio mob which is composed of the
worst elements of tho population.
Berlin, March 27-— The Reichstag
this nfternoon by a vote of 131 to 3 rejected Prince Biemarck's spirit mon*
opoly bill, Members of tho right abstained from voting,
Brussels, March 27.—Property of
immense value has been destroyed by
the strikers around Charlcroi. Country
estates have been pillaged and burned.
At Jumet, threo miles from Churleroi,
the Satin, Dcdorlead, Devillea, Jouet,
and Londmn gloss works havo been
looted and destroyed, involving hundreds of thousands of dollars loss,
throwing hundreds cf persons out of
employment. At Konx, two miles
from Churleroi, in a conflict between troops nnd rioters fivo of the
latter were shot dend. Thu strikers
nre armed with bludgeons and axes,
whero they cannot obtain firearms, and
stubbornly resist the troops.
VBHNAy March 28.—A horrible story
has reached hero of brigandage legal- j
i::ed hy the Vuli, governim? the Albanian district, having its centre in
Scutari. The rbport says thnt an un-
'ff^slanding has been entered into with
n brigand chief that a percentage of
nil plunder is pnid to the Governor,
who in his turn guarantees the brigands nbsoluto immunity from molestn-
tiotis from tho soldiers. On the other
hnnd nil the women and girls captured
by the brigands nre handed over to the
Governor ut a stipulated per capita
prico. The youngest nud most nttrnc-
tive are sent to Constantinople, where
they aro sold to merchants who supply
Turkish nud Persian harems. The rest
of tho women nro held for a ransom,
wliich not being paid, they are banded
over to the soldiers as perquisites. The
women destined for the Turkish mar
kcts aro chained in couples and marched to Uobotti, on IhoCoynua, whence
they are shipped iu small-Greek vessels to Constantinople, sometimes taking sovoral days to reach their destination, and su tiering terribly during
the voyage. Somo probability is given
to this horrible report by tho fact that
thore hns been nu unusually large supply of Albanian women for sale in the
Turkish capital recently.

In the Chinese language there are
sixty characters and meanings to the
syllable Ling, seventy to Sing, and
Borenty-five to Ing. The Chinese ohild
has a prettywr endearing nickname,
given it soon1 after its birth. Then
the boy has a Bchool nnme when he
goos to school, a marital namo when
he takes a wife, a business name when
he goes into business, an official name
if he takes an office, and a death namo
to be put on his tombstone, and to go
down iuto history. The Chinese prefix
"Ah" so common in this country, is
an endearing diminutive, equivalent to
Sam-my, John-ny, Tora-my in the
English language.

all suffering as I did."

An Efficient Remedy
In all cases of Bronchial and Pulmonary Affections Is Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. As such It Is recognized and
prescribed by tho medical profession! aud
in many thousands of families, for the
past forty years, ft has been regarded as an
Invaluable household remedy. It is a
preparation that only requires to be taken
lu very smalt quantities, and a few doses
of It administered in the early stages of a
cold or cough will effect a Hneedv cure,
and may, very possibly, save life. Thero
Is no doubt wliatover thst
Ayer's Giieriy Pecterel
Hus preserved tho lives of great numben
of persons, by m-rcsting tho development of
Laryngitis, Bronchitis, Pneumonia,
and Pulmonary Consumption, and by
ttio cure of thoso dangerous maladies. Tt
should be kept ready for use In every
family whero there are children, as It. Is a
medicine far superior to all others In the
treatment of Croup, tho alleviation ot
Whooping Cough, and thecureof Colds
and Inlluenca, ailments peculiarly incidental to childhood nnd youth. Promptitude in dealing with all diseases of this
olass is of tho utmost Importance. The
loss of a single day may, In many cases,
entail fatal consequences. Do not waste
precious time In experimenting with
medicines of doubtful efficacy, while the
malady Is constantly gaining a deeper
hold, but take at once the speediest and1
most certain to cure,

Yale, March 24.—The exploring
party, in charge of Riley and Northup,
sent out by the citizens of Yalo to get
the most feasible and shortest route to
Granite Creek mines, returned yesterday, having beon vory successful in
getting to the mines nnd returning by
the same trail. They report a trail
oan be made ot very littlo expense by
the way of Ynle and Spuzzum utilizing
the Cariboo wagon road to Suspension
bridge and by building a trail from
Spuzzum across the country to Otter
Flat on the Tulamecn river, a distance
of 25 miles, where it intersected the
Nicola trail, 7 miles from Granite
Creek. The country traversod from
Spuzzum to Ottor Flat is vory favorable for travelling, with good feed for
stock along tho route, nud can be kept
opon without uny difficulty all the
year. Now that thc citizens of Yale
havo gone to considerable expense, and
proved the feasibility uf the Bliortost
route to thc mines, it behooves the
govornment to see lhat a trail is constructed without delny. The trail is
34 miles shorter than any other.
Farewell Greetings.
REV. A. DUNN TAKES LEAVE OF HIS FLOCK.
For some time it hns been known
that the Rov. Alex. Dunn, tho respected pastor of tho Presby tor inn
Church, in connection with tho Church
of Scotland, Langley, intended to resign his charge nud return to tho oast.
Tho rev. gentleman having put his
resolve into execution, nud his mnny
friuntls leurning thnt he was nbout to
leavo the province iu a few days, gathered ut the house on tho evening of
Monday, loth instant, nnd presented
Mr. and Mrs. Dunn with a number of
handsome giftB, amongst the number
a handsome gold-headed walking cane
to the pnstor nud a beautiful ulbiuu lo
Mrs. Dunn, accompanied by tho following nddress:
Thb Rev. Mr. ami Mrs. Duxn: It
is with feelings of sincere regret thut
wc renlizo tho loss wo aro about to sustain in losing you from amongst us,
nnd that soon our relations na pnstor :
und Hock will bo severed. Hut, how-,
ever strong that regret may bo it must'
ever be mingled with the deepest gratitude for tlio untiring patience und
Christian zeal with which you have
borne up under thc surest difficulties, j
braving without a murmur the storms J
and hardships of pioneer mission work
during the past ten years; mid though
our outward relations mny be changed,
yet we earnestly hope that you will
continue tu be in thought and feeling,
in tbe future, as in the past, our pastor
still; that we may still be, in the future
as in the past, objects of your kind
solicitude nnd prayerful supplications.
As a faint expression of the regard in
which we shall ever hold yuu, will you
accept these small mementoes of our
affection nnd esteem, and whon yuu
luok on them please think of the lenl
und true hearts in Langley. Trusting
that wherever the Maater in His providence may call you His smile will ever
brighten your path und His arm uphold nnd strengthen you, and that
deep us uur loss is it may bo yuur gain,
we bid you a sad and Sorrowing go^d-
byo.
Mr. Dunn, in hriefly returning
thanks to thu friends fur thoir kind
wishes and valued gifts, Baid: "Always
u man of few words, I feel that on an
occasion like this, und in circumstance-)
liko these, all words and thoughts have
forsuken inc. But although my feelings will not allow me to utter many
words I know that you will not on
that account think thnt yuur great
kindnesB is not appreciated. We never
can forget you, or cease to take an
interest in your welfare in overy respect. While I have at times felt
obliged to oppose certain schemes, and
to condemn certain actions, which I
considered hurtful to the best interests of the community, I have alwaya
done bo from a strung sense of duty,
and uot from tho mero love of opposition. The desire for peace in me is
very strong, but the desire to see justice and sobriety prevail is stronger
still. I am glad to think that in every
district where I have ministered
there are men in whose loyalty to the
Church of Christ, and sterling hon
esty, I have the most entire confi
dence. Into your hands I now com
mit the affairs of the Church, and I
have no doubt that by the grace of
God yeu will prove worthy of the con-
fldenco I repose in you. In my own
name, and iu that of my wifo, I again
thank you for your very great kind
iioss, nnd for your woll being will ever
pray."
On the evening of the Kith representatives from Mud Uny, Langley
Prairie, Fort Langley, ami Mnple
Ridgo, again met at the manso of
Langley und presented Mr. Dunn with
a woll-lillod puree and the following
address:
Rev. and Dear Sir:~-Nuw that the
timo is drawing near whon you are to
novor your connection witli us as our
pastor, after a sojourn amongst us of
101 yenrs, planting the church of ou
fathers in this far-oil' land, we beg tn
assure you that it is with feelings of
sorrow and regret that we contemplate
tho prospect of purling with you, Ab
a friend you havo rejoiced with us
whon our hearts wore glad, and mingled your tears with ours as you performed tho laat sad rites nt the graves
of those dear to us. You hnvo taught
our children in tho Sabbath school,
pointed them and us heavenward, and
hnve yourself nlways led the way. To
you, nnd you alono, wo are indebted
for the churches that we worship in,
nover flagging nor wearying in any
department of thnt cause so manifestly
dear to you. In parting with you and
Mrs, Dunn, who hns so nobly helped
you in your arduous work, although
we may never see your face, or hear
your voico, our prayer for you both is
that Heaven's richest blessings mny be
yours; and although it grieves us to
purt from you, yet we can look forward
to the time when we Bhall be re-united
in our Father's house, whore partings
are unknown and where sorrow never
enters. And now, Reverend Sir, accept this purse as a token of the esteem
in which you aro held by us. The
hardest task of all is for us to bid you
farewell. Thomah Black, Hbctor
Fkrouhon, Henry Wark, John Boys,
John Stbvbnson, John Armstrong.
Mr. Dunn replied in the following
terms:
My Friends.— I feel very much
moved by the touching words you have
additMed tu me, as elso hy this substantial eipresston of your good will
and kindly feeling. I can nssure you
that the prospect of parting cannot be
more painful to you than it is to ui, in
many respects. Still the field Is
widening and extending on all sides,
and I feel, and have felt for some time,
that I oannot do justice to it. Theae
long walks and long fatiguing journeys,
muat be undertaken by u younger nnd
stronger man. Though six or seven
years ngo I felt as if iny preaching
days wero nearly ended, I am very
thankful that nfter "roughing it" for
ten and a half years, I leave yon bo
strong as I am. On coming amongst
you at first my chief deaire wus your
salvation, and now un leaving you, my
whole being seems to gather itself up
into this ouo wish, namely, that you
maybe saved; saved from sin and sorrow here, and from eternal banishment
from God afterwards.
Mr. nnd Mrs. Dunn aro uow on their
way to Scotlnnd.
Joe, Thc Wreck.
"Guilty, or uot guilty r
"Guilty, your Honor. It's the old
plea, Judge—the plea Moe tho Wreck'
has been making for yenrs. It has
beon entered against mo in nll the
courts below, and I'm afraid I'll find
it against mo iu tlie Courts nbovo.
Will they bo hard on mo up thore,
Judge! Will thoy call ino 'Joe the
Wreck,' and because I have to put in
thu old ploa, will they drujr mo around
liko a heartless thing? You know I
can't alter the plea, Judge. Will thore
bo nny mercy when I answer 'guilty'
in the Court above?"
"Yes, up there mercy will bo shown
evon to 'Joo the Wreck'; but they will
punish the guilty 'up thero.' You nro
a hard case, Joe. Always un a drunk-"
'Always ? Oh, no, J udgo, not
ahvaijs. Once I whb an innocent babe
on niy mother's breast. Once I wns a
happy boy, playing about her knee.
There wasn't a bad thought in my
heart Judge, nor a blotch nor a scar
my faco that sho kissed. Once I
was loved - Ah Judgo, 'Joo the
Wreck' was onco good enough fur a
pure woman to love.    Bessie loved mo
oh—the past"—
"Joe, tlie Court pities you, but--"
''Don't, Judge; don't send mo off
yet. I want to let it out of my withered heart, Once I had a homo, Judge
—'Joe the Wreck' had n home—mine
nnd Bessie's, Did you know her,
Judge, her tbey called 'Bessie, the
Parson's 1u3b1"
Aro you the Joe that married
Bessie—"
Ah, you did know her, thon, Tho
lirst evoning I went home and found
our cottage bright and warm, Bessie
smiling and blushing by the littlo table
where waited the lea her willing hands
prepared, I was tho proudest mnn in
the world, Judge. Something swelled
iu my heart and burned iu my throat,
and 1 couldn't speak. A feeling more
like heaven than I'll ever.fcnow again.
A feeling that died long ago—died
even out of my dreams—dljjd when she
died of a broken heart—"
'Joe, the Court—"
'Wait, Judge, wait for hor sake.
You told them 'Joe the Wreck' won
Bessie. Let me tell them he wasn't
a wreck, then. He won her because
he pledged her and God, and that he
would luve and cherish her. Ho kopt
that vow till drink made him forget—
forget God, love, homo, wifo, tho babo
on her bosom-Oh, if I could only forget now~rforget nil the daya that are
dead—the hopes I have wrecked—tho
graves whero I've buried—everything-"
"This is a strange scene iu Court,
Joe.    Will you try to break off)"
"Never, Judge, I can't. The past
pushes me on and down. I fear tin-
dead back there more Hum tiio deiith
before. The ghosts all riao up when 1
turn. They follow mo in the bright of
day, and como to haunt mo in tho remorseful dreams of night. I see thc
old house where I played; the.mother
who taught me a prayer at hor knee;
the father who doted on hia only boy—
aud I see—Bessie-Kill, Gud!—her
radiant face undor the bridal veil—-her
face full of lhe heaven of motherhood
na she laid her firat-born on my breast
—her faco whito and tear-wot aa she
pleaded with mo—holy with wifely lovo
as sho prayed for me—thc babe—1 feel
its Boft hands on my cheeks—Oh
Judge—"
"Joo, I forget that I am a judge,
and pity you with the heart of an erring man.   But you- •"
"Wait, Judge, only a word more
nnd 'Joe the Wreck' will go. Ah, if
the world only knew. If it could see
his poor soul hiding from the past and
tho devils that pursue him. They
point at their work aud mine with
shadowy fingers, and laugh at the ruin
we have wrought. Yes, I'm guilty,
your Honor. I have brnnded my bouI
with the curso of drink. Ay, men will
look on Bessio's gravo nnd sny I'm a
murderer—Oh, the days—the yenrs
that are gone—the graves I have filled
with their dead-—"
"Jue—"
"I'm mad with this talk—Hn, ha,
ha, why should I think uf the good!
I am going to the bad. Not Bessie
aiul Joe, but ruin and Joe r-.ru wed.
See the boys how thoy stare at the
wreck! Ah, 'tis Bessie a talking today—lot ine put on the old wreck
again. Now yuur sentence, Judge,
send me awny."—Chicago Current.
Tho figure of n dog in the window of

tiou of u sympathetic crowd. "Won't
