Bad Form.
Unless tliere are qualifying circumstances of which the public
know nothing, the first strategic
move of tho opposition leader am]
his new lieutenant in the provincial
assembly has been a mistake. When
"the opposition has no hope of electing a speaker, it has been thc custom to abstain from opposing the
government nominee unless he was
unfit for tho position or otherwise
quite objectionable. No valid objee
tion could lio ngainst Mr. Pooley as
speaker, and thoro wns manifestly
not the ghost of a chance for the
election of a speaker by tho opposition. Under these circumstances
a judicious leader would have refrained from making nn exhibition
of his weakness and the manifest
smallness of his forces, and would
have avoided a division until some
question came up upon which he
could hope to alienate the allegiance
of some government supporters.
But Mr. Beaven nnd Mr. Bolo seem
to have forgotten the wisdom which
comes of experience, and rushed
ahead to certain defeat. Not only
did their motion fail conspicuously,
but their nominee indignantly repudiated them and resented the liberty they had taken unwarrantably
with his name. Viewed from every
standpoint it was bad form, and
does, not speak .well for the leaders
of the opposition. • By the way, our
Church st. cotemporary has been
telling his readers for months that
the govemment would surely be
kicked out of otlice on the assembling of parliament. But then our
eotemporary does not expect to be
believed very much!

S.H.WEBB,
dja25!2 Chief Engineer
The Inter-Slate Bill.
for some time the United States
congress has had under consideration a bill to regulate American
railway tariffs, and thero seems to
be a general belief that the bill will
certainly becoiuelaw. Tho purposcof
this measure is to prevent discrimination of railways and other com
mon carriers, and to equalize the
tariff.     It is the practice now, and
has been for many years, for railways to give a through rate very
much lower than the local rate, and
to make special rates between points
where thoracis competition. Under
this ampigejnent SHugh freight
may be earned three thousand miles"
between competing points for a less
rate sometimes than three hundred
miles where thero is no competition.
This brings about many curious anomalies. It happens, for instance,
that a person can ship freight from
San Francisco to Boston over the
Canadian Pacific By. cheaper than
from Kamloops to Winnipeg. It
happens also" that passengers going
from Kamloops. ._to .JIoalra.1 .can
save quite' V lot of money by purchasing tickets from this city. Discriminations such as these are very
plentiful, and have produced a great
deal of prejudice against the companies who make them. The interstate bill aims at removing thoso
eccentricities. The effect of the
bill cannot yet be definitely ascertained because some of its provisions
are not very clearly understood.
If the railways are forced to charge
the same rate for local and through
traffic, they say they will be obliged
to abandon through traffic altogether.
To carry local traffic at through
rates would mean absolute ruin. If
thia should come about, thc through
traffio now going over the American road, would all fall to thc 0.
P. K., because its operations would
not be affected by the inter-state
bill. But this can hardly be expected, for the railway companies
will surely find some way by w1iich
the through rates may bo maintained at a figure sufficiently small
to secure the tiade. But it is only
a matter of time when the people
of Canada will be forced to adopt
similar legislation to that now being
adopted in the United States. The
monopoly and discrimination of tho
railways have beon ainnng thc most
conspicuous grievances of the Cans.
dian Northwest, and have become a
serious menace- to the prosperity of
thia province also. It will be the
duty of tho Canadian parlinment
shortly to devise some means by
whioh this grievance may be mitigated or removed. If the inter-
■tate bill accomplishes this object
without seriously endangering the
railways, it may be taken as the
basis of legislation for our own country. There is likewise a clause in
thie bill whieh forbids the granting
of free passes over any American
railway except for cause. Under
thii clause no more passes may be
inued to senators, members of con-
greis, or members of atate legislature*. Thie ie a most proper precaution. Both in the United States
and Canada it has become customary to iieue free passes to members
of almost all legislative bodies, and
tht evident purpose in many cases
hai been to eeoure favor from these
houses. A man .with a free pass in
Ui pocket may bo able to act with
itrlotest impartiality when questions
como beforo him in whioh the
schemes of th* tailway.connict with
• the publio Interest, but most per-
toni would i-*»rd the publio inter-
wt safer if the'p***»» *">' *«*»•

aESTLEMEN.-In cftbring myself to

you In tho Commons this coming open*
ing of tho Houso, I do so ln nil sincerity,
believing Unit I (ran do moro for your In*
lerests (nan any of the gontlemon that
have como forward so far. ram at borough
Conservative nnd ln entire sympathy
with tho present govornment, who havo
proved themselves (ho friend in need nnd
in deed (o Uritish Columhlu.
Gentlemen, I hnvn my private feelings
and opinions on most of tlio questions of
tlie day, hut if I go to the Honse by your
sanction to represent you, I sball submit
to your commands and directions which
you can send mc as lhe different questions
nf the day present themselves nnd as circumstances. Interest;-, nnd opinions chnage
on thc spot, to bo represented; for I hold
that in going to parliament by your voto
and pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord nml mnstor, ns somo
hove thought And acted accordingly when
out of your reach.
' Temperance, gentlomen, Is ono of tho
questions that (rouble tho district atthe
present time. Now, gent lemon, when tho
right timo arrives for us to receive prohibition nono will ho found to work for that
measure wllh moro sincerity or energy
than I, and uo government ou earth will
bo moro happy to grnnt that measure than
they; but tho time has not arrived yet, I
am sorry to say, and I say further, that
the time for prohibition entirely rosts
with the tomperanco people themselves,
for as soon as thoy prove thoir sincerity In
tlie cause by petitioning pn rl lumen t to put
a tax,on tea, cofleo nnd other articles, and
on income if necessary, thereby providing
revenue to carry on tho govornment, then
and then only can thoy succeed in tbelr
causo, then and then only can thc govornmont coMiply wllh their wishes. Money
is the root of all evil, so parsons tell us,
and money Is tho mighty lover that is go*
ing to lift you Into i tint haven of temperance you all so desire and drenin of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize the Importance of your selecting a good and proper
mnn to represent you at Ottawa, ami I also
fully realize tho fact that I at so great dlstanco am working to a grent disadvantage; but, gentlemen. I trust to your Intelligence and tothe friendship of my old
friends, and feol satisfied yau will do Jus-
lice to yourselves who aro to bo benefitted
or Injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to sorve you sincerely and faithfully in

stop at home, help you wheu I'can, and
sincerely wish you may ho ns well served

Theatre v. Church.
Editor Columbian. — Last night I
read in your items: "Vancouver is to
have a new opera Iiouse, capable of seating 1000 people and equal to, if not better, than the Victoria theatre"; and as I
read, says I to myself, says I, isn't that
queer now, and the Vancouver clergy
have been sending away cast, and all
over, tho most earnest appeals for holp to
build temporary churches that will hold
two or three hundred each. Will they
be begging everywhere for money to
build the opera Iiouse ? I suppose they
will, for thoy were burnt out and are
very poor; bnt it is Queer.

morning, in an article un the passage
in the United States senate laat Monday of the nsheriei retaliation bill,
aaya: "We are sure that auoh outspoken bitterness ugainst England

American senators or people. On the
other hand, it would bo foolish to shut
our eyes to tho importance of the
queition involved." The Daily News
says: " Today's telegrams from New
York, Montreal and Ottawa are of a
very reassuring character. Nobody
here regarded the violent speeches of
Senator! Ingalla, Hale and Frye seriously. Even dignified American senator! aro not abovo playing to the gallery. It must be hoped that no steps
will be taken to excite a quarrel, and
that the good sense of Canada will in-
■iit upon a polioy of peace," The
Standard aayi: " President Cleveland
will probably have the good sense to
veto the measure or agree to it only iu
form, as a prelude to amicable negotiations. We protest against tho idea of
either England or Canada boing coerced into yielding a jot or tittle of
their rights by suoh empty threats.
We have none of tho ulterior motives
assigned by Messrs. Ingalli, Frye and
Hoar, but auoh termi aa thoie indicated ask more than justice, The dispute,
however, ought not to be beyond the
power of diplomacy."
Mr. Henry Harding, of Toronto, writes:

Tliere is every likelihood of litigation concerning tho payment of the
policies of assurance hold on tho lifo
of tho late Mr. J. S. MoLachlnn. One
company, the Sun Lifo, hns paid its
policies, but it is stated the others resist payment It may be tlint tho
mutter will be amicably settled, but
■uch is not the present appearance.
There was, as has been stated, a total
nf $42,130.70 insurance on his life,
plnced as follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life $7000, with a bonus of 8130.-
70, and nn uceidont policy in the same
company for $10,000, ranking n total
uf $17,130.70. Of tho accident policy
for $10,OQ0, $5000 of it was reinsured
witli the Citizens' Insurance Company.
The Sun Lifo has [laid the $17,130.70
to tho heirs, Tho Citizons refuse to
pay the Sun Life, and tho latter company will outer suit Tho Sun Life
on paying the claim tn tho McLachlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund tho amount of
insurance with 0 per cent, interest
compounded yearly ihould Mr. J. S.
McLachlan ever turn upnliro. The
other insurances were $11,000 in LonJ
dun and Lancashire Lifo Co., $2000 in
the .Etna Life, $2000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund nud a partnership polioy
fur 810,000 iu the Accident Company
nf Nortii America. Thero was a personal 'accident policy in the latter company, and when J. S. McLachlan left
Montreal some time ago, the unearned
portion of the premium was returned
and the policy cancelled. The partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
the North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not a registcied partner at the time of
his death. The partnership polioy
was on the lives of tho Messrs. McLaohlan!, Mr. Radford and Mr. Hio-
phy—four in nil. In caso of death by
accident nf any of them the policy wns
payablo to the survivors. When Mr.
Ilrophy retired from the business his
name was removed from the pdicy and
another put in his place by the company,
who never was and is not now a partner.
While the Sun Life hns paid ita policies, the others hnvo oxpressod the desire to receivo mow satisfactory proofs
of doath than have been furnished
them. The Citizens' Insurance Oompany claims, lint, that thoy woro nut
notified nf a desire fur renewal, and
second, tlmt the premium fur tlie wound year, wliich began in August last,
haa not yot been paid, Tho polioy of
the .Ktiiii calls for tho production of

written a lotter to»Mr. Macaulay, of

company has acted with regard to the

1 he annual report of tliis solidly pros-
perous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and tho Directors' report
thoroughly justify tho ecomiums whioh
tho shareholders preseut bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has do-
cllned to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, tho work,
ing oxponecs of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 nud 18 por cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is tho faot that the interest
Income is sufficient to pay tho death
claims- -which in a company of the ago of
tho Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. Tlie ass ts and liabilities are
