Senator Mclnnes on tlie Treaty
During the debate in the senate
on the fisheries treaty. Senator Mclnnes took exception to a statement
made by Souator Dickey to the
effect thut Canada had recoived
justice from all commissions where
she was represented. He referred
to the Washington treaty, concluded
after.the terms of union wiUiBritish
Columbia had been agreed upon and
signed, and yet British Columbia's
interests were wholly overlooked by
that treaty. In the arbitration
respecting the ownership of San
Juan island, Oanada had loat the
key to tho Pacifio province through
want of action on her part. In the
fishery treaty just concluded the
interests of British Columbia had
not been considered at all, and those
of eastern Oanada had been sacrificed. The question of the Pacifio
const seal fisheries where Canadian
vessels had been seized and confiscated by piratical Americans, seems
not to have been taken into consideration at all; and while rules were
being laid down for the Atlantic
fisheries, not a word was said about
the equally important fisheries of
the Pacific, lt seemed to hitu the
Pacific provinco, with her fisheries
and her harbours, was treated as if
it was not a part of Oanada at all.
He could not understand why the
whole question should not have been
disposed of by the same commission.
Why should there be one fishery
commission for the Atlantic coast of
Canada and one for'the Paoific!
He was afraid that the pressure of
imperial interests had induced the
Cruidaian commissioner to consent
to the sacrifice of the interests of
his own country. He pointed out
how the territory of Oanada had
been carved out by the United
States with impunity, disfiguring our
southern boundary and depriving us
of some of our most valuable possessions ; and now it wu proposed
to surrender our fisheries alio. The
only time when Oanada. obtained
her rights when treating with the
United States was in 1876, and then
the government had insisted that
nobody but a Canadian should represent this country on the commission. There we hud been awarded
8500,000 a year for fishing privileges which we were now about to
surrender without any consideration
whatever. Why should we on the
Pacific coast be left with our fisheries unprotected and with no headland rights decided or defined, and
in suoh a position that American
fishermen can enter our waters and
fish as they please t All who are
acquainted with the geology of the
Pacifio coast know that from San
Francisco northward there is an unbroken wall of coast extending 800
miles without an indentation worthy
the name of a harbor, until you get
to the straits of Fuca and from that
point we own the coast to Alaska.
Between Vancouver, Queen Charlotte and Valdees Islands and the
mainland, in tho Gulf of Georgia
and tho various inlets there are
thousands of miles of sea coast
without any boundary defined within
which the American fishermen are
not permitted to iish. When such
a treaty was under consideration,
the least they could have done was
to show the people of British Columbia that their interests were not
a matter of indifference to Oanada.
BY TELEGRAPH.
An American Opinion.
The Boston Herald appears to
have a very clear perception of
Canada's position in respect of the
fisheries question. Discussing the
terms nf the treaty it says: "It has
been greatly to the advantage of tlie
United States that in this negotiation it has had to deal with England rather than with Oanada. A
treaty of the character that has
been signed could never have been
obtained from Canada if that country had been an independent state,
for uo one representing her peoplo
woulrl hnvo dared to make the required concessions; and even if, by
art or persnusion, such concessions
had been obtained, the Canadian
parllniuent would havo refused to
ratify llio agreement. We have
scoured our ends because it is of interest for England to remain on the
Kelt terms with tho United States,
nnrl her government can afford to
dlsrogivrd Canadian wishes in order
to avp|d the least international friction." This is nlmut as cheerful
rending for Canadians as the re
mark of I he Cleveland Phindtaler
tlmt, while the Dominion parliament and the Newfoundland legis-
Intui'o may make wry faces over tho
pill null take some time in swallowing it, tho home government will
see to it that thoy take the dose.—

DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, March 15.—In tho house
of commons to-day Mr.Davies resumed
the debate on the reciprocity resolution, following the path laid out by Sir
Richard Cartwright that the country
was being ruined, and that unrestricted reciprocity was the only remedy.
Mr. Foster made a capital speech in
reply. He denounced in strong terms
the unpatriotic tone adopted by the
gentlemen opposite, and in vigorous
language portrayed the prosperous condition of the Dominion.
BOUDANOER DEPRIVED OF HIS COMMAND.
Paris, March 16.—The Jotinut!
Office! states that General Boulanger
has recently visited Paris on three
different, occasions without permission
from the war office, Twice, it says, he
disguised his identity by wearing a pair
of dark spectacles, and by affecting
lameness. The Journal dwells at length
upon the serious nature of suoh broaches of discipline by a general officer and
thoir effect upon the army if they are
passed over in silence. The Journal
prints a roport made by the war department, which ha, received tho approval of President Carnot, which
places General Boulanger on the non-
active list, by depriving him of his
command. General Boulanger has
telegraphed to a friend, Deputy
Laguurre, that if he had went to Paris
as it had been stated he went, it was
on account of his wife's iUuess rind
that he did this after the' minister of
war, General Legerot, who knew the
reason of his desire to go, had refused
to give him leavo of absence from his
command.

strike. The report is' current that
eastern stockholders aro becoming dissatisfied with tho condition of affairs
uu the B.rrlinutun, and that several
stTTekhulders in New Ytrrk, all uf whose
means nre invested in Burlington
stock, had decided to appeal to tho
United States court for tho appointment of a receiver for the road.

While approving of-niany of tho
provisions contained in the new
provincial licenso bill, the Victoria
Times strongly objects to having tho
licensing power placed in tho hands
of tin.* government. Under such n
system it professes to believe that
"no man who is an opponent of the
government would get a license, nnd
every licensee who shows any independence of James Hay control
would have his license annulled upon the slightest pretext. In addition to this," it says, "the net will
increase the already excessive number of salaried officials, while it will
decreaso tho revenues of the municipalities." Wo aro afraid our
ootemporary oitlior docs not quite
comprehend the bill, or that he is
not discussing it fairly. The machinery for granting licenses is the
same as has been in operation for
many years in Ontario; and although party feelings run very high
in that province, it is a fact that
during all these yenrs a largo majority of the liquor licenses have
been held by opponents of the government. There is no ground to
anticipate a different result in British Columbia. The commissioners
in Ontario receive no salary, and we
presume the same plan is contemplated here. They are, therefore,
entirely independent of the government. The inspector receives a salary; but any one must know that
such an officer is absolutely necessary to the successful enforcement
of the law.
A good deal is being said about
the poouliar position occupied by
Hon. Theo, Davie with respect to
certain crown coses in the defence
of wnioh he is interested. As attorney-general Mr. Davie is supposed to prosecute in all crown cases;
but before the time of assuming an
official position he hnd been engaged as counsel for the defence in two
or three cases whero the crown was
prosecutor, The position of Mr.
Davie now is that while he is officially the prosecutor in these cases
he is in fact defendant's counsel,
and it is urged that all other considerations ought to give way before
his official obligations as minister of
the crown. Mr. Davie maintains
that there are good precedents on
which his position may be justified,
and that the peculiarity of tho circumstances will not in any way interfere with the public interests.
Having accepted a retainer from
certain clients previous to entering
the cabinet, he cannot now withdraw without the consent of these
clients; but.the crown business will
be quite safe in the hands of the
deputy attorney-general, who may
employ other counsel to assist him
if necessary. Mr. Davie's defence
is certainly worth consideration. At
the same time we think the position
he occupies is unfortunate. We are
quite prepared to believe that the
public interests will not suffer in
this case, but the circumstances
may lead to such suspicions as will
weaken public confidence in the administration of justice, which will
be very unfortunate.
For some time the government of
British Columbia has been making
an effort to have the deep sea fisheries on this coast thoroughly prospected. It is commonly believed
by those whose opinion deserves notice that these fisheries are of great
value; but the cost and risk of thoroughly examining them would be
considerable. Tho government 1ms
given it to be understood that it
would be willing to assist to a reasonable extent any party of practi
cal fishermen who would undertake
to test these fishing grounds, by
making small grants of land, or
otherwise. Very little has yet been
done, but there seems to be good
ground for believing that the time
is not far off when the fishing force
on this coast will be greatly increased. A party of Norwegian fishermen has been operating for some
time with fairly satisfactory results,
and the probability is that thisparty
will remain and grow. Wo have
already said something about the
colony of 700 Scotch fishermen
which proposes to come from Frnser-
burg. This colony, wo aro assured,
is composed chiefly of men who
thoroughly understand deep sea
fishing, and who are both able und
willing to encounter the hardships
and dangers of such a life as deep
sea fishing implies. There are in
the provinoe now a number of Newfoundland fishermen who are making preparations to begin operations
in the vicinity of Howe Sound.
Among these are Capt. Alcock and
Oapt. Goes, who left a few days ago
for White Cliff point. They took
with them lumber for houses, nets,
and other supplies sufficient for at
least six months. We are informed
that these men are thoroughly posted in all tbe branches of catching
and curing fish, and that they are
men of irreproachable character, and
not without means. All they ask
irom tiio government is a small
piece of land for each fisherman,
a request whioh, we believe, has
beentreaty granted. There area
large number of the better class nf
Newfoundland fishermen who have
announoed their intention of coming
to tWspwrinM if favorable reports
are sent by Cnpt. Alcock and his
associates. It will bo somo lime,
however, before any roports will go
out, as it is intended to prospect the
waters pretty thoroughly before anything is determined upon. We hope
the venture will bo completely successful. '

of the ltelgiani is s Saxe-Coburg; tho

iBotne action of his bank, A few days
after he presented $40,000 in bills—a
much larger amount than tho same
figures represent nowadays—and demanded specie for them, The bank
olllcials were equal to tho emergency,
but thought to revenge themselves ior
the scare Barker had" given them; 10
they rolled out 40 kegs of $1,000 each,
tlie teller explaining tbat the kegs wero
•tilled with 5 and 10 cent pieces. Barker
saw the point, and justified his reputation
for sharpness. He ordered the whole 40
kegs to be unheaded on the spot, took a
icareless handful of loin from each keg.
then calmly said that ho desired to have
the remainder placed to his credit. The
bank hod to lose his valuable custom or
'take this money, so it chose tho latter;
but tho tedious count] of tho forty kegs*

a ■msi-ik', for the dealer assured me that
the ruddy fruit was a distinct variety.
"It is arlitk'inlly produced," he said,
"by glutting tm ordinary orange tree
with tlio pomegranate. The result is nn
orange liko any other, bo faros tluvor is
don'email, but with rod juice that is
visi'tl'i through tho skin, it brings A
slightly higher price, bocnuse it is regarded as a curiosity.

A New Industry.
Wo understand that Mr. S. L, Kelly
has made all the necessary arrangements fur organizing a joint stock company fur the purpose of preserving salmon, halibut and ull kinds of fish caught
in tho waters of this province. This is
a step in tho right direction, nnrl will
bring woalth to the country. Tho company propuBo tu locato a depot at
Becchor Bay, for tho purposo of freezing fish in solid cakes of ico, tu accom-
plish which patent ice machines will bo
usod. Mr. Kelly has had a paterrt
issued to him so that tho investment
ought to be a gnud uno. Tho process
uf catching and expenses of freezing
and shipping shows n profit of 4_ cts.
per pound. The plant, it is understood, will cost about 820,000, which
will enable tho compnny to put up
100.33 tons uf fish each season. Mr.
Kelly Bays that fish caught in season
can bo produced one yonr nftor in as
good condition as when caught, and
states as an absolute fact that, provided the fish havo not been hurt before
freezing, they will retain their vitality
fur a year iu the block uf ice. Jt is the
intention to commence uperatiuns on
tho first of next Juno.—Victoria Colonist.
Frorlnrinl Legislature.
A largo part of yeatorday's Bitting
-was takon up by a discusBion relating
to the public accounts committee. Mr.
Heaven stated that tho committee had
found that a sum of money had been
paid out of the treasury without any
proper authority, and that the chairman of the committee refuted to present a minority report, signed by himself and Mr. Grant, who were members of the committee. He moved that
the house adjourn for an hour, and
that the committee be instructed to roport at once. By this means the house
would have an opportunity to know
the facts. Mr. Duck, chairman of the
committee, maintained that the minority report was not a report at all,
and ho was perfectly justified in refusing to present it. The object of the
minority was to force the committee to
do something it d d not be'ieve ought
to be done. Hon. Mr. Hobson said it
was not cuatomaiy to present minority
reports, and he asked Mr. Beaven to
withdraw his resolution. The govern*
meat courted the fullest enquiry into
the matter, but the minority of the
committee was clearly exceeding its
rights. Mr. Bole supported tho motion and contended that if the chairman of the committee abused his powers in this way the placing of opposition
members on the committeo was simply
a farco. The practice uf appointing 11
majority of government supporters on
all committees was followed in no
other house. Messrs. Semlin, Humphreys and Grant supported the motion.
Hon. Mr. Davie defended the action
of the committee. Mr. Beaveu's resolution was lost ou a vote of 8 to l-i.

Notwithstanding the inclemency of
the weather, the skating rink was
packed to overflowing last night by
the members of the Presbyterian congregation and their friends, who had
gathered to enjoy the long talked of
social. After prayers had been offered
by Rev. Mr. Lennie, the choir Rang
" The Moss Rose," which, tliough well
rendered, showed the want of practice,
and a lack of power on tho part of thu
male voices. "Marche do Nuit," a
piano duet by the Miaees Clute, waa
delivered with muoh precision and excellence. "Vauderdeckon," by J. S
Clute, jr., was followed by an excellent
recitation by Mr. T. J. Trapp. " Tlio
Auld Scotch Sangs" was sung with
much feeling and sweetness by-Miss
Sutherland, wh", in responBu to a
well-merited encore, gave " Coimn'
Thro' the Rye." " Hail Festal Day "
by tlie choir, was followed by "Bonnie
Doon," an instrumental piece, by Miss
Alico Clute, which was exceedingly
well rendered. " Wings," by Mr.
Ogle, was well received, after which
Mr. J. S. Clute gave an exceedingly
funny Irish reading, " Miss Maloney
ou the Chinese Question," with the
purest brogue. " Midsummer's Night
Dream," nn instrumental duet, by
Misses Band and DeBeck, was received with much applause. "Our
Guards," by Mr. Wilson, and "Craigie
Lea,'1 by Mr. Lyal, brought the programme to a close. Rev. Mr. Scouler
then announced a change of programme
which would be fully as enjoyable as
what had gone before. The young
ladies and gentlemen set to work with
a will, and soon everybody wss most
industriously occupied in drinking tea
or coffee, and demolishing really excellent cakes and pies. The rev.
chairman's remarks turned out to be
perfectly correct, and to the ladies
must be given the credit that they bo
well deserved. There was no stint in
any department, but on tho contrary
sbundence of everything; and somehow
it seemed that wlnt one appreciated
most was in tlie greatest abundance, a
most unusual occurence at a social. A
couple of hours were spent in disposing
of the dainties so generously provided
by the ladies, and then the gathering
bri-ko up, everybody satisfied with
their evening's entertainment. Miss
Jamieson deserves special mention for
the really excellent manner in whioh
she played the accompaniment! for the

A WARNING TO   SWITZERLAND.
Berlin, March 12. — The North
German _a^eUe reprints au attack upon Germany hi the form of a poem entitled "Vive La Franco," whicli was
circulated in a pampelet at Basle during the carnival, and reminds Switzerland that her neutrality imposes upon her the obligation of avoiding
provocation to foreign powers
The Gazette adds: "Some of the inhabitants of Switzerland appear to bo
unconscious of this obligation. We
trust that the Swiss Govornment wilt
thwart the plans of those who desire to
disturb the relations existing between
Switzerland and Germany."
A COURAGEOUS  SUGAR MAN.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 12.—
Clans Spreckels, the sugur king of the
Pacific slope, arrived hero with his son
last evoning. In an interview he said
that hiB plans had beeu definitely made
aa to the building of a rclhicry iu the
east, and the only points now under
consideration were those as to the location aud capacity of the refinery. He
said the capacity wou'.d not be under
4,000 barrels per day, and might reach
8,000 barrels. "So long as I live,"
said Mr. Sprockels. "I will never go
into any ' trust.' I will either erect a
refinery here, in .Now York or Baltimore, find 1 will carry it on with my
capital, a'nd I defy any 'truBt' to break
me up. 1 can sell sugar for whatever
thoy can sell it."
THE STORM AT WASHINGTON.
Washington, March 12. — The
storm yesterday was one of the most
remarkable known for years, in fitct
the capital seemed to be in thu centre
of a miniature cyclone that brought
with it a blinding succession of rain,
snow, wind and cold. In the early
hours of the day the gutters ran high,
and in many low places the sewers
were blockod, thus flooding the streets.
Tho heavy rain continued until about 3
o'clock in the afternoon, when it
turned to blinding snow, which stuck
to everything it touched und turned to
ice. As night fell tho heavy laden
telegraph wires began to come down,
and in mnny places the streets were
blockaded by them. The police wires
were out of order, aud to add to the
discomforts of the night, the electric
lights began to fail. By midnight the
eity was almost in darkness, lave the
feeble gas jets. At tho signal offico today it was learned that the storm was
the result of the splitting of the storm-
trough that on the day before yesterday extended south from Michigan.
Batutdiy night it divided, forming
two storm centres, one over Lake Erie
and ono in Georgia. The southern
contra then began climbing up the
coast, yesterday morning. The centre
itself did not reaoh here until about 3
o'eloek in the afternoon, This took
until midnight to pass. The tots)
rainfall amounted to l'A\ inches. OH'
Cape Henry tho wind was blowing 55
miles an hour yesterday. Tho railroads
hading into Washington have been'
blockuded by snow, fallen trees, tele-
gni|jh wires und poles, so the movement of trains has beeu eoriously impeded if not abandoned. At the
Western Union office it ii learned that
the effect upon tho wires is the worst
ever known here. Washington was
completely isolated since 7 o'clock
Sunday evening. The morning and
evening papers of to-day appeared
without telegraphic information. Tho
wind has kept up its high velocity all
day, and at i) o'clock tonight it had
not changed.
The Beit Pills,--Mr. William Vunder-
voort, Sydney Crossing, Ont., writes:—-
"Wc have*hegn using 1'armelee's Pills,

ever used." For Delicate and Debilitated
Constitutions theso Pills act like a charm.
Taken in small doses, the eliect is both a
