England bus forgotten ono thing,
and sho will do well to recall it—
viz., tlint tho ownership of land
and security of tenure ure the only
foundationfeof prosperity and happiness in Ireland. The fact whioh
oven her most astute statesmen do
not recognize ia that the Irish, as
a people, are and have heen a homeless race. They live in constant
uncertainty; they have no interest
in tho acres which they cultivate,
and thoy never make any improvements on their holdings. In considering the Irish problem thut unfortunate fact should not bo forgotten— N. Y. Herald,
An improved extradition treaty
between Great Britain, including
Canada, and tlio United States, is
certain. Euch country has, much
to its own disgust, been the refuge
of scoundrels from tbe other. We
think this is one of the exceptional
cases in whicli an apparently retroactive law would be good. It is
difficult to understand why botween
two nations with almost identical
laws, the necessity of extradition
proceeding should not bo done away
with altogether, and the writs of
either country run indifferently in
both. Why should not each country be able to trust the other to
deal with its own criminals?—Mon*

English is uow taught by decree of
the state, in the primary schools
throughout the country; English
ideas nre permeating overy rank of
society and aro purnmount in the
system of education; and in the
higher walks of learning, among
tho educated classes, tho philosophy
of Mill, Darwin, Speucer, nnd Huxley litis overturned not only Confucian ethics nnd studies, but also
tho later and favorite philosophy of
Choo He. With theso classes the
Christian missionaries, in combating
Confucianism, Buddhism, or Shinto
(which last is now a superstition
fallen almost to tho level of folklore), nro engnged in slaying the
Blail). The whole educated portion
of tho nation will soon bo givon tip
wholly to Spenceriun theories anil
systems: just as readily as Japan
took up Chinese philosophy twelve
centuries ngo does she now assimilate European philosophy, choosing
the most advanced point of it.—
The Week.
The enormous changes in the distribution of political power by the
British reform bills during the past
century can be best recognized by
comparisons based on the representation of tho county of Cornwall.
Tho geographical position of thnt
county, its agricultural und fishery
resources mnde it always an important district; bub wheu it is recalled
thnt tbe Phiuniciaus trailed with
Cornwall for its mineral wealth
long before tho Unmans dreamt of
the conquest of Britain, it can
readily be recognized how the
county came to have so enormous
a political power. In 1786 this
single county elected 44 of the 553
members of the imperial parliament,
or one-thirteenth of the whole.
With the development nf the north
before free trade, and its enormous
expansion afterwards, there came a
gradual transference of political
power from the south and especially
tho aouth-wost By act nfter act,
theso 44 seats havo boen swept
away, until to-day tho county has
only seven members. Thero were
in 1785 no loss than 21 double-
member boroughs iu this county,
but the bill of lust year left only
onu single member borough, and
another reform hill will probably
otlaco thnt one by raising the standard of representation, — Ottawa.

Tory governments everywhere revel
in deficits. The imperial revenue
receipts for the nine months of the
financial year are -£1,300,000 less
thnn the receipts of tho corresponding period of Inst your. Mr. Childers estimated that during the whole
year there would bo a falling oil' of
.£1,010,000. It seems impossible,
although the income tax ms been
increased by twopence iu the pound,
that the receipts for the current
quarter can be bo large as to) bring
the revenue for the year up to the
estimate. From; the fact tl at the
chancellor of the excheqm r has
found it necessary to issue the whole
authorized four millions of exchequer
bills it is inferred thnt tbe expenditure will exceed the estitnaie/even
exclusive of the expenditure which
the present military operations in
Egypt will cause.—Globe.

at 1 p. m., aud being duly sworn proceeded to the usual busineu. Present

Jenkins, Houston, Gray, McEwon,
and Murchison. R. H. Holding was
appointed auditor for the accounts of
previous year. Mr. G. Rawitsou was
reappointed clerk, collector, treasurer,
and returning officer for 1880, and request ed to furnish bonds at next meet*
ing to the amount of $1,600 for due
performance of duties.. The clerk was
instructed to take legal advice on the
subject r.f taxation of squatters.
Conns. Jenkins and McEwon were
constituted a finance committee, ahd
Couns. Gray, Houston and Murchison
were constituted a board of works.
The clerk was instructed to ask the
Surrey council to gazette about 10
chains of road, the connecting link between telegraph trail and Langley river
road. Coun. Murchison gave notice
to bring in a bylaw for returning the
assessment roll, and alao to amend
rules of order bylaw. Coun. MoEwen
gave notice to bring in a bylaw to provide for the salaries of municipal officers. Council adjourned till tirst Saturday iu February.
Wealth of Alaska.
The value ot Alaska is gradually
coming to light. When Secretary Seward paid §7,200,000 for it in 1807, ho
wna taunted with his bad bargain.
Since then it has begun to make a record ns n bullion producer, displays
the finest growth of timber on the continent, and, by virtue of later explorations, promises to become some day a
fairly flourishing agricultural region.
Tliis is nows to most Americans, but is
an old story to certain people. The
Russians have known it for a hundred
years, the Hudson Bay Company for
half that period, and the Chilcat Indians from time immemorial. They
alt had reasons for keeping their knowledge to themselves. The Russian
Eur Company, feared nothing moro
thnn miners und prospectors, because
the Russian govornment reserved the
right to deprive it of the control of any
country in which mineral should be
found. The Hudson Bay Compnny
kept quiot because it was none of it*
business, although its employees were
not averse to n little profitable poaching upon tho domain of the Russian
company. The Clulcnta maintained a
monopoly of the trade betwenn tho
const und the interior, weru jealous of
intrusion, and lied diplomatically nbout
the resources of tiie country. At the
same time the Yukon river, which we
havo recently "explored," was lined
with Russian trading-posts and native
villages for a distance of a thousand
miles from its mouth, and there was a
British trading-station on tho river in
1851. Lately the Chilean have recognized the new order of things, and
have pledged themselves to peace and
good oflices ou condition of the instruction of their children in the wisdom of
the pale-faces. The way has thus been
opened for a full knowledge of the
capabilities of Alaska, and something
has been learned regarding them.
Between the Alaskan const range
and the Kocky mountains lies a vast
plateau, drained by the Yukon river
and its numerous tributaries which
form a great navigable river system.
The prevailing level of this region is
broken only by a few isolated mountain clumps and ranges. It corresponds
with tho similarly situated plateau of
tho Columbia river known as tho Inland Empire, except that tho sagebrush of the latter is replaced in Alaska by grass prairies and tundras, on
which the muss grows kneo deep, nurtured by the melting of tho stratum of
underlying ice in tho midsummer heats.
This in practically an equivalent for
the modern system of subsoil irrigation, which is attracting so much attention aud funishlng such favorablo
results. Host and moisture thus combine to force forward vegetation during
tho short but warm summers. When
future settlement tests tho capabilities
of this Interior soil and climate it will
probably be found fruitful for crops
uot requiring a lung period of ripening
Totiipei ature iu Alaska depends more
upon distance fmm tho, sea than upon
latitude. The Japan current warms
the coast, hut the dampness nf the
littoral climate and the early rains prevent grain from ripening, although
vegetables do well. Iu the drier interior cerenls will flourish dospito short
seasons. Lieut. Scliwatkn's report of
his trip up the Yukon valloy speaks
enthusiastically of thu luxuriant pasturage, vast forests of timber, herds of
rmndeor, cloudless skies, hot sun, wild
fruita, eto. His report is moro tropical than boreal in its coloring,

V The .Seattle TnteUiijmcer of lOtlt
,(„ ilist. prints an article witli tlio
li heading "A Smuggler's Experience,"
jj( J and credits it to the Victoria 1'ost.
[lrj The article originally appeared in
j]« an eastern paper, and the scene of
,A the incident was Detroit, in Miclti-
ijl gfiii and not Victoriu at all. But
jtj the Post copied it, changing the
,ili names of places, substituting Vic
elitJ toria for Detroit, and palmed it off
jrt'us original -and the Seattle .paper
|§ copied it as such. This practice of
I 1 palming ol! stolen articles as origi-
j|j mil is practiced liy certain Victoria
,1* papers so persistently tliut it has
M liccoine diHicult for most persons to
jH distinguish the original from the
ji stolen. Wholo editorials are fre-
Ijj quently puhlislied as original by
t these papers, when they have simp-
j! ly been clipped without change and
1/ 5 without credit. This is both uupro-
u j fessional and dishonest
•ii
1     The
mavor of  Toronto is
„,[ beginning his adininistratiou with
ti I some practical and much-needed re-
I,' forms. Xot long ngo one of the
jf city preachers publicly denounced
i'i tho roller skating rinks, and uie-n-
,!j tioncd instances where young girls
• 1 had  been led away from virtuous
<
lines hv reason of the associations
. of these places. The mayor pro*
J; i poses to make a regulation requir-
-J! ing all rink proprietors to refuse
f: admission to young girls without n
J guardian, unless thev have written
- permission from parents orguar-
' dituis to attend. Tliis regulation is
, both reasonable and just. It is
i also proposed to give power to the
' police to inspect places that are
i suspected of being houses of assigna-
1 tion. Jt is to be hoped the enforce-
j    ment of these regulations will have
a  wholesome effect upon the moral
atmosphere of Toronto.
It is being remarked that Queen
Victoria opened the new British
parliament in person, making her
first appearance in that capacity
sinco the clays of Beaconsfield's
brilliant administration. As a
special favor she closed the last
session of BcaeonsfieUl's last parliament, ai1' now she opens the first
sessioti ni the first parliament that
succeeds him under Tory auspices.
While the Liberals were iu oflico
site made no appearance in the
house, and the circumstance is mentioned as a proof that the queen
makes no attempt to hide her
Tory sympathies. It is also mentioned that when Beaconsfield went
to the polls just after the queen's
gracious act in personally closing
his parliament, he and his party
suffered signal defeat. From this
it is inferred thflt in the event of a
dissolution now, iV similar defeat
would await those whom the queen
lias gone out of her way to favor.
Yadkiel's almanac predicts events
that, if they happen, will make
1886 a most gloomy and eventful
yenr. Canada is to be scourged
with drought, and possibly another
rebellion. For Eeliruary the pro-
yramimi is full of variety, although
it contains nothing specially striking. There are to be great floods,
earthquakes, financial panics, riots,
smallpox, and scarlatina. March
lets the world off with comparative
ease, and April promises evil to
Great Britain only. May is a
month of great aud dire calamity
for Canada, while Ju^e, the montli
of roses, holds tlie cup of sorrow to
tlio lips of the Turks. July aud
August are to witness a renewal of
eastern hostilities and the revival of
Asiatic cholera, and in October
there is to bo fighting ou the borders of India. In November a
terrible financial crash is to come,
and the_ year is to close with the
music of clashing arms. But it
may be just possible that Yadkiel's
almanac is mistaken after all.
A Remarkable Huddle.
There is  scorcely a misfortune
that happens to any section of this
provinco in wliich tho green eyes of
the Guardian do not discover somo
form of the ghost of "Honest John."
If it is possible to believo tbis man
responsible for one hundredth part
of the things with which the organ
credits him, he must be one of the
most wonderful persons ever known
in human history*    The latest freak
of the Guardian's peculiar form of
madness appears in an article on
"Tho Ice in the Fraser," published
on Saturday.   After entering into
an elaborate argument to show that
ifc would be unreasonable to expect
the mail steamers to come up the
river   during   winter,   the  organ
shunts itself off into one of its stereotyped screaming charges against the
provinoial leorettiy.  What possible
connection there o»n 1» liefcweon |
the ice in the river ami tho provincial secretary it would puzzle any
one besides the organ to discover,
but from the way in whicli that
gentleman is mixed up with the ice
anil tho snag boat one would suppose that ho is responsible for both.
"What is more simple," says the
organ, "than that the snug boat
should go down to tho point, and
then tako the lend up to the wharf."
We confess that we really know of
nothing more simple than this; but
when the organ proceeds to say
that, "to blame the C. P. N. Co.'s
steamers is only a trick to divert
attention from Honest John and
Coal Harbor," tho simplicity suddenly and completely vanishes, The
organ goes on to assert lhat thc
provincial secretary cares nothing
for any part of the district except
Coal Harbor, and concludes his extraordinary article with this declaration! "Had it beon otherwise the
0. P. N. Co.'s steamers would have
beon coming here as usual." If
there is a grain of common senso
mingled with, the rubbish which
represents thc result of our cotemporary's reflections, he must mean
that the snag boat, and the C. P. N.
Co., and the ico, are all under control of the provincial secretary, and
willing agents for the accomplishment of his schemes. If this is
his meaning, wo cannot help wondering at the sublime ingenuity ef
our cotemporary: if it is not his
meaning, the muddle of words must
be what the sub-editor of the organ
so frequently describes ns "gabble."

The Governor's Speech.
In another column will be found
the full text of the speech delivered
by the lieutenant-governor at the
opening of the house on Monday.
The speech is chiefly notable, perhaps, on accoujit of its congratulatory tone, and the sentiment of
hopefulness that pervades it. It
begins by reference to the completion of the C. P. R. (tho greatest
event iu the history of this province) and the beneficial eflects that
are likely to result from it. Undoubtedly we may reasonably look
for great things in connection with
the opening and vigorous operation
of this road, and it is a matter
worthy of hearty congratulation
and hopeful anticipations. It will,
perhaps, surprise some people to
know that more than half the truck
on the island railway has been ;il-
■eady laid, and it must be pleasing
to learn that tho construction of
this work has caused such a rapid
settlement of tho districts through
which it passes. The reference to
the graving dock brings out the
fact that it is not to be enlarged at
present, which is unfortunate. After making a passing reference to
the visit of the governor-general,
the address touches upon the Chinese question and declares that the
constitutionality of the act regulating Chineso will be tested by an
appeal to the privy council. Another source of satisfaction is the
recent extensive discoveries of gold
at Grauito Creek and elsewhere, and
the prospect of a fresh boom in this
industry. The increaso in the cost
of administering justice and providing education, whilo indicating
a real growth in population, may
lead to some misgivings. British
Columbia is a province of such wido
distances that, for many years at
least, we must look for a considerable increase in theso two departments. The announcement that
steps have been taken to protect
our interests in any renewal of the
Washington Treaty will be received
with satisfaction. There is a reference to the agricultural development
of tho country, and a recommendation that the laws should be consolidated aud some scheme devised for
the adjustment of water lights. It
must be extremely gratifying both
to the government and the people
to find that there has been a considerable increase in the provincial
revenues. Tliere is certainly not
much legislation promised in the
speech, but, after all, these state
papers have come to bo a very poor
index of tho work of tho session.
They are too often intended really
to conceal the intontion of the government.

Ciiauuinu the Coasteils.—On Monday night, a large number of young
people were coasting on the hill on
the Port Moody toad, just beyond
Sapperton, when thoy were charged
by a wild heifer which had escaped
from ono of Mr. VanVolkenburg's
bands. The furious brute caught
Lily Mundy, a girl of about 12, and
tossed her high in the air. Fortunately the child fell in the soft snow
and . eaoaped without serious injury.
The heifer then made a rush fnr Mr.
Terhunej but he dodged her, and ahe
slipped and fell haavi'y, and could not
got up. Word was seui to Mr. VanVolkenburg's slaughter house, and
oneof the men came down and killed
her. During the brief period in which
tho heifer held the fort there waa

but the young people displayed a heroism worthy of all praise.

concerning the unlawful and question
able practices carried on in saloons and
kindred institutions, with the object
of exposing and punishing thc perpetrators. It is tho intention to placo
the Blue Ribbon organization on an
active, aggressive footing, and with
this object in view all friends of temperance—all good citizens—all true
patriots—tire urged to cooperate. The
magnitude of the evils inseparable
from the liquor traflic—even in our
city—iB very inadequately apprehended
by tho bulk of our citizens. The Blue
Ribbon society intends to throw some
light on the subject in due time.--

Oi'ENiNo of tiie River.—On Monday morning the tug Belle arrived
from Ladner's with a raft of logs containing ubout 200,000 feet fur tho
Royal City Planing Mills. The str.
Dunsmuir nlso arrived with mails from
Nanaimo. The river has been closed
to navigation just one week, but during that week there was no time when
a properly protected Bteamer could
not have come up to this city with
perfect ease nud safety. At no time
was tho river frozen over, or the ice
stationary. The only obstruction was
floating ice, and it never attained such
a thickness as to mako it formidable
to properly-equipped steamers. Some
persons hoped that permission might
bo obtained from tho Dominion government to allow the snng boat tu
keop the river open during tho few
days when the ice happened to bu
troublesome; hut tho Dominion government has made no move in that
direction, and evidently does not intend to trouble itself whether tho
mail steamers came to this eity or not,

City Council.—Council met on Monday night, all the members present., A
communication was received from''the
city solicitors pointing out a number of
defect* in the gas by-law submitted by
tho Construction Co., and suggesting
that a representative of tho company be
asked to confer with the corporation.
The (suggestion was adopted. Dr. Mclnnes und Capt. Pittendrigh applied for
removal of poplar trees near their residences, as they wero dangerous. The
mayor was requested to consult the city
solicitors concerning the corporation's
authority in tlie matter. In response to
nu application the Chinese wero given
permission to celebrate their Now Year
as usual. A number of accounts were
presented. Tho police committee reported, recommending that W. N. Bole
lie appointed policu magistrate at 81,000

Nanaimo.—Tlio Westward Ho has
changed bunds already, and is now
issued threo times a week. We hope
it will change its name as well.— The
exact output of coal for 1885 was 307,-
233 tons, which is 211,837. tons losii
than tlie previous year.
Thb Hail Skkvicb.—On Saturday
we mentioned that the C. P. N. peoplo
professed to be anxious to bring the
Princess Louise to this port, and would
do bo whenever the river could be navigated with safety. On Monday they
had an excellent opportunity to provo
the sincerity of thut profession. Thore
was no ice to obstruct navigation. The
str, Dunsmuir came up from tlio mouth
of the river, and the tug Belle brought
up a raft of logs containing 200,000
feet. But the mail steamer Princess
Louise passed by the river and took
the mails and passengers and express
to Burrard Inlet—and tho mails did
not reach this oity until near 0 o'clock
at night! It is quito true that tho
telegraph wires wero down botween
this city and Victoria, and definite information about the condition of tho
river could not be obtained at Victoria
before the steamer loft. But tho known
circumstances all pointed to the probability of the rivor being freo from
ice. the latest telegram beforo the
lines went down reported rain falling,
and in Sunday's Colonist an announcement appeared tliat if tho weather
continued mild the Louise would go to
New Westminster on Monday. The
weathor was mild enough, surely, but
the steamer didn't come. If the captain had been very anxious to come up
this river he would have made an effort
to do ao, and the effort would have
proved how very easily it could bo
done. The people of this city havo
Buffered a great deal nf annoyance aud
inconvenience on account of just such
incidents as this, and the mail contractors must not expect that theae things
will bo borne without complaint. Wo
have not forgotten the time when the
Idaho, from Tacotnn, pushed her way
up the rivor on tho same day that tho
subsidized mail steamer passed us by
and Bteered for Burrard Inlet. Thero
are many other incidents from which
one may fairly infer that tho 0. P. N.
peoplo do not put themselves about to
accommodate this city, and wo ahall
bo rery glad to mention something
that will show that the inference is
not just to tho company.

large numbers from a distance took

From Alder Grove.
(Correspondence of the Columbia1--!.)
A publio meeting wns held on tho
10th inst., which was attended by
nearly the whole ot the settlers in this
rapidly rising settlement. -Mr. E.
Whyman, postmaster of the settlement,
was appointed chairman. Amongst
thc subjects introduced wore petitions
to the government for improving the
Yale road, and also for n polling place
iu this settlement to enable the settlers
to voto instead of travelling all the
way to Langley for such purposes.
Over fifty signatures of those present
at the meeting were obtained. It was
also suggested that a publio hall bo
built for holding meetings for local
purposes, and that it also bo available
an a place of worship and open to nil
denominations, of which those present
were unanimously in favor. Parties
desirous of going to Lyndon or Whatcom cun do bo by the trail from Alder

in a short time will be tho main road
from the river to the American lino,
a distance of 12 miles, the greater part
of which is already passable for wagons. Alder Grove possesses advantages to the settler that cannot be sur-
passd in the Fraser valley, high ground

Opening ol the 4tli Session of Uie
Hii Parliament.
THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE.
By Telegraph.
Vhtoiiia, Jan. 26.—The fourth session of the fourth parliament of British Oolumbia was opened here to tiny.
The following is a copy of the speech
from thu throne:
Mil.   Sl'KAKKIt   ANO   GkNTJ-KMKN   ok
thk Legislative Absbmbiv,—-In meeting you nt this your fourth session,
I am glad to be ablo to congratulate
you upon the continued prosperity of
thu country and the hopeful prospect
uf its varied resources being steadily
and increasingly developed. The stupendous work of constructing the
CANADIAN  PACIFIC' RAILWAY
from the Atlantic to the Pacific has
been successfully accomplished, and
tho iron baud which now spans the
continent, entirely within British territory, may be confidently expected to
produce effects beneficial alike upon
Dominion and provincial interests.
The people of this provinco will be
drawn more closely to those of the
other provinces, and inter-provincial
trade will he stimulated as an .alternative routo between Great Britain and
her Asiatic possessions. The railway
will doubtless be regarded by thu Imperial government as of great import*
auco to the interests of tho empire.
The establishment of strong dofensivo
works at the various points ou the
coast necessary io prevent hostile approach to the new national highway
from the waters of tho Pacific should
be .pressed upon tho attention of the
Dominion and Imperial governments
with a view of causing our natural
strategic position to bo recognized und
transformed iuto a Formidable outpost
of British power and prestige. Work
on tho
ISLAND RAILWAY
has been prosecuted with commendable
energy. Already tho rails aro laid
moro than half the distance botween
Esquimalt and Nnnnimo, and propor
tinned progress on the remaining part
will secure thc completion of tho entir
road in early summer. Tho benefits
accruing to tho province theough tho
construction of this road aro important,
The settlement upon lands along its
lino which took place to so great an
extent in the year 1884 has continued
unabated during thu year just closed,
and it is very gratifying to bo able to
state that more land has been taken up
by actual settlers in the various districts embraced within the railway belt
on Lhe island, during that period, than
had been acquired during nil the pr
vious years.   Work on
THE Olt'AVlNd D0CJK
has made satisfactory progress, and it
is confidently expectod tliat during the
coming summer it will bo available in
cuso of need for the reception of any
vessels in theso waters. In view of
tbe establishment in tliu near future ot
a line of largo steamers fprtraiis-Pooidd
trade which will probably be longer
than the present dock would accommodate, it lias become apparent ihat it
should be lengthened to a gufjlcioilt
extent to meet lhe requirements of tlie
future.,. My ministers liavo urged upn'h
the Dominion government the expediency of providing foi* such enlargement whilo tho work jh iu progress,
but anxiety to Binmro tho earliest possible completion of tho work seams to
havo induced the Dominion government to defer extension until a future
period when it may be easily done,
nlthougli at a somewhat increased cost.
Since I last met you the province has
enjoyed tho honor oF a visit from tils
excellency
THE  GOVERNOR GENERAL;
HiB excellency wns impressed with the
beauty of tlio scenery and salubrity of
tho climate, aud expressed himself as
entertainim/ n high opinion of the resources of the country and great confidence in its future, Tho acts passed
by your last session and the session
previous to prevent thu further influx
of Chinese, and to regulnto those
already here, havo beon only partially
successful in attaining their object.
The uct to prevent the
IMMIGRATION OK CHINESE
after huving been in operation a short
period was disallowed by tho Dominion
government as hoitig ultra vires of this
house. An act was, however, passed
by the parliament of Canada purporting to accomplish the samo object.
That net bus been in operation since
with beneficial results to a limited extent, and it is to bo hoped that at tho
next session of that parliament iho
principle ombudied in the act referred
to may bu extended. The Cliineao
regulation uct, passed by your parliament iu the session of 1884, but not
put in forco until Peburary last, is in
operation so far'as its provisions have
not been challenged. Objections having been raised respecting tho, constitutionality of certain imposts provided,
and an adverse decision of the supremo
court having been rendered, steps have
been tuken Io appeal lhe case to the
privy council. You will be invited to
consider what furl her action shall be
taken to secure the object aimed at by
previous legislation. The discovery of
rid) alluvial
oor.n mines
on (intuitu aud other creeks in Vale
district is likely to bring about a new
era of mining development in ihu provinco. A lar-;e mining population,, it is
oxpected, will die nttrn'ctuil fin the now
diggings during the coining Reason, mid
your sanction may bo naked to such
expouditui'UB as may be ueci'-isary to
open up that suction of country willi
emids and ImiUlo facilitate xi much as
possible lhe successful prosecution of
an industry wliich will have so important un iiillueiico upon the general
hit urea's nf the whole province. Tho
Dig Bend section of tlie Kootenay district is attracting uieu mul capital, and
thruugh the hgeRoy uf the Canadian
Faoiflo Railway company it is believed
that ihe rich auriferous quartz veins
there will soon be nnulo to yield a
golden harvest. Effort a are boing
mado to have the varied products tif
the province well represented at tho
t'OMiNIAI,  ANO INDIAN EXHIBITION
to bu held in Loudon during tho present year. The oobI of tho administration of justico has been vory much increased, This is owing to tlie largo
general increase of population and
more particularly in ci*-n«cqucne-> of
tha Influx nf peoplo into i-einme nnd
unnetiliid portions of ihe cnnniry. But
nt whatever est, law und order must
bo maintained, and !■ is my aim to
mako it apparent that life mid properly
will be protected and crime punished
even in the remote portions of ihe
province, In view of impending negotiations between the Imperial nnd t\8.
government for a renewal or enlnrge-
ineiit of the
TREATY OF WASHINGTON
I have taken steps to ensure thnt the
interests of this province shall not be
overlooked or iiiisiinderstni.il. The in*
crunBe of population in the various districts on mainland and island haa caused
a demand for the establishment of
numerous new schools, and while, in
coijsequence, the expenditure iu connection with our educational system is
becoming very heavy, the cause of it is
nevertheless gratifying as showing the
rapid growth of the settlements. The
total product of our gold mines has
been about the same as the previous
year, while thero has been a slight
falling njf in thu output uf coal owing
chiefly to the depressed condition of
the Shu Francisco market.   The
AGRICULTURAL INTERESTS
of tho province ure satisfactory, although the unusually dry summer had
the effect of somewhat reducing the
yield of cereals and roots ou Vancouver
Island. I recommend the appointment of commissioners to revise and
consolidate the statute laws of tho
province so that eyery ono desirous of
becoming conversant with our laws, or
upon whi m the administration of justice depends, may readily obtain
knowledge of the same. It may be
well also that you Bhould consider the
consolidation of the many statutes
relative to the constitution and proceedings of the supreme court. The
question of
WATER RIGHTS
for irrigating and manufacturing purposes upon that portion of the mainland situate east of the Cascade demands your serious attention. The
constant strife and legislation attendant upon the use of wuter iu that
region is productive of great Iobb to
the individuals concerned, and is, consequently injurious to the public interests. I should he glad of practical
but uot hasty legislation on this subject, and suggest your appointing commissioners, composed of persons of
practical experience, to submit to the
next legislative assembly a report
defining tho principles which in their
judgment should govern the employment mid acquisition of water rights.
The revenue has continued
STEADILY TO INCREASE,
that for tho last fiscal year having exceeded the estimate considerably. The
public accounts will be laid before you,
and estimates for the public service
during the next year will be submitted
for your consideration. I now leave
you to your deliberations with confidence that your labors will be devoted
to promoting the best interests of the
province. I pray that Providenco inny
guide your efforts.

Port Moody Ice.
Editor Columbian.—-Why yon persist in misreprescntiug facts in relation
to the ice in Port Moody harbor, when
the truth ia so generally known, is incomprehensible, After making a plain
misstatement on Wedneaday to the effect
that tlie Princess Louise did not reach
here Monday owing to ice, you do not
improve matters any in Saturday's issue
liy saying tlmt slie did manage to get up
Monday but did not venture on Wednesday. Such wilful prevarication and
attempts to mislead make ub rather
"tired." The facts aro that tho Louiso
wus not iu tlie least hindered from reaching here on Monday by ice. On Wednesday she did not come up for tlie same
reason that she does not run to Ham*
inond on that day—because there is no
train to connect witli. However, tlie
str. Teaser cumo hero Wednesday without tho least trouble, and so did the
Louise on Friday, after the very coldest
weather we have had this winter, This
Port Moody i e business is simply a
humbug, invented by thoae who nover
miss nn opportunity to make misstatements to Port Mcody'a disadvantage,
whicli, by their easy disprovat, simply
tend to render their circulators discredited iu everything they say.
Fair Play.
Port Moody, Jan. 25th.
[Our correspondent seems to be lying
—finder a misapprehension. There certainty wns no desire on our part to do
injury to Port Moody. On Saturday
we corrected ttie unintentional mistake
of Wedneaday, and stated that the error
iiad arisen through incorrect information
sont from Granville, At tlio fame time
we stated explicitly that tlio Louise did
not go up to I'ort Moody on Wednesday,
hut did &o up on Friday. Wo did nut;
say that she "managed to cot up on
Monday, but "did not venture on Wednesday! These expressions our correspondent ninkes use of, apparently for the
purpose of producing an Impression on
the public mind that we mnde the correction grudgingly and with hostile intent, liidooil he asserts that the correction "did not improve matters." Our
ispoudunt then proceeds to nay that
the Louise "wns not ia the least bin*
eml" by thc ice in nucliing Port
Moody. But the Colonist stated, after
tho Btenine'v had returned to Victoria,
that she liad to cut tier way through ice
one and a half inches thick, nntl wo
presume that this information was obtained from persons on the steamer. In
the Guardian of Saturday we notice a
letter on the same subject, presumably
written by the same person who now
sign-i himself Fair Piny, In lhat letter
Tiik CorttoouAvia accused of "wilful"
lying for saying tho Louise did not go to
I'ort Moody on Monday, and in the very
next sentence it is stated that the Louise
"will lie up again tn-dny (Wednesday)."
But sho did not go up Wednesday, and
if wo wore to apply the correspondent's
rule to the measure of himself he might
bn utile to perceive what mischief it
would work. It was reported at this
ilty, and from tho lotter of "0" we presume tho samo report waa current elsewhere, that ttio Louise went to Port
Moody on Wednesday, and surely Fair
Play need not distort n simple correction
of that rumor Into an undoubted proof
of animus. With reapect to tlie presence of ice at Poet Moody, that seems to
lie cHtahlished beyond reasonable doubt.
When tlio IhqHOSW were being held at
I'ort Moody in connection with the Nortii
Ann tragedy, wo were told by persons
whose voracity is beyond question that
there was a good deal of ice on the harbor. On tbe 15th inst., wliun tlie str.
Leonora brought tho body of Walker
down from the North Arm, her captain
refused to take her up even as far as tho
railway wharf on account of ice, and the
KW8 FROM AU PARTS OF THE WDILB.
Dodoe Citv, Kan., Jan, 11.—The
heavy snow and bitter north winds of
tbe past ten days have caused the most
serious apprehensions among cattlemen.
Up to thia time but few have come in
from the range country, but within a few
miles of here no less than 5000 bead have
drifted to the river, where they perished
in attempting to cross, or drifted up to
fences where they remained and froze to
death, A man in from a ranch south,
reports seeing cattle, on his way up,

Tho water holes are frozen over, the grass
is snowed under, and thc loss of live
stock will be very heavy.
New York, Jan. 10.*—The morning
papers say the trades unions here have
begun boycotting Chinese laundrymeii,
and there have already boen held several
conferences on the subject. The Central
Labor Union has promised to support
tlicm. Hr.ndbills aee in circulation, dated Elizabeth, N, J., announcing that
"war" has been declared there against
all Chinese laundries, and warning citizens to refrain from patronizing-"under
paiu of being themselves boycotted.''
The handbills are said to have been
issued by the Labor Union.
St. Louis, Jan. li!.—The trial of the
Chinese liichbiuders wan continued in
the Criminal Court tins morning. The
Circuit Attorney opened the cuse by
reading the indictment found by thc
grand jury ajainst the defendants and
explaining the fact. Tho coroner, who
investigated thc death of Len Johnston,
who it is alleged was murdered by defendant, was placed upon the witness
stand and testified as to the location and
probable manner of the infliction of the
wounds found upon Johnson's body. Lee
Cliio testified that n conspiracy was formed to put Johnson out of the way, and
that he was ottered $1000 to do the job;
that ho refused; that the money was
paid to Chia Chiagc'., who murdered
Johnson. Witness stated that Chiagek
would with ns little hesitation kill a man
as a chicken.

Mormon Taxes. -Speaking uf lhe
Mormon church and its tithes, the
Salt Luke Tribune aays: "The poor
girl that works for $3 a week pays to
those shepherds 30 cents. The poor
man who works for §9 per weok pours
into the samo insatiable maw 00 cents,
even if he has a wife und children to
feed and clothe. Tliat revenue
amounts to more than @1,»00,000 per
annum, and no man can tell where
om- thirtieth part uf the sum is returned in charity. The centra) stake
of Ziou is a place with more pour and
ignorant people than any place of its

a decciu public alms houso, school*

THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of tho great central exhibition opened at Toronto on tho 10th
■Sept., tho Toronto Glolic says:
An object of epecinl attention, which
by vory reason of its prominence on thc
grounds cannot escape tbe nttcntion of
the most casual aiul carclctia observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Com-
iiany. This is a aepamte building but a
little distance from the south coat of tho
Main Building. This pavilion must bo
about ,r»0 feet by 40 feet, With » porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
in handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to nll in broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that compnny, and
that .loBcph Husc, of (18 King-street
Wosfci represents the company. Inside
uu pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
Biiccecdt'd, No one should visit tho Exhibition without going through thia pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of mush'. Here are decorations, handsome picture! of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ituac, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artibtic mid unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to tho
genius and skill of oitr Canadian manufacturers. I'iiiuos and organs of every
style and artistic design arc found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
iitii! pedal bass orgnn, with hnudsome
pipe top, faces the visitor nt the extreme
end ns he enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every Btyle ami design to suit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit thc fact is worthy of
n cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held there thc Company had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ and I'iano Company
at the opening of tho London Fair. In
his address fiom the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impe
tus Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as au il-
lustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ and Pinno Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ and Pinno Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, thc very highest the judges could
possibly confer over alt other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest aud best
musicians, had declared further that thc
instruments of this company were superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from sueh a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, tho Company
ought to feel content,

Aililrm 11ARPBR * BROS.. New Ytrt. ■ Tlie Soudan situation,
Tho renewal of hostilities in thc
i Soudan, will umko opportune a few
!] words explanatory of the relative pofli*
f-   tions of  the British forces and the
■ enemy iu that country. After tho fall
of Khartoum the two columns of the
expeditionary force, one of which crossing the desert not far from Khartoum,
3 and the uther well on to Berber, were
i withdrawn down the river past Don*
i gola, where a frontier was fixed having
it Akasheh us ils advanced point.    The
; British nnd Egyptian  frontier forces
■s wero   distributed   between   Assouan,
g Korosko, und Wady Hulfa.    With the
j retreat of tlie British notwithstanding
;- the Mahdi's death, thu Soudanese nd-
| vnuced  rapidly upon  their heels and
i some   bad   rumors   began  ta get un-
| pleasantly frequent.   Tlio officers in
] command  of the frontier force deter
\ mined tlint Akasheh, which is situated
on the right bank of the Nile nud
r entirely surrounded by hills was hide-
- futisihlo by the few men under their
.j command. The frontier troops were
j thon advanced twenty-throe miles
; south—that is towards tliu enemy—to
'.) Kosheh, where a field fort was erected.
I Buring October and November the
i nows from the enemy was so alarming
; that additional troops were brought up
i from Lower Egypt, Troops wero then
I placed at Kosliuh, Akasheh, Ambigol
j Wells, Wady Haifa and Surras. A
i ylutico at the mnp will show the strate*
,1 gical importance of these points-—they
■ command the route lending to Lower
' Egypt. Besides these greater points
*i there aro guard towers ut. a number of
,* lesser ones. Tlio whole distance cov-
i ered by General Butler's commune! win
( 110 miles.
I        From Wady Haifa to S.imis on the
Nile, some thirty milos distance, the
1     principal rapids lie, and these are puss-
t     ed by a railway.   At the beginning of
i     December the enemy becmne threaten-
j     ing, and  ut tucked  the advanced force
i    at Kosheh.   This they found improg-
i     liable,  and  lhey then   withdrew antl
making a detour into the desert, slid-
'     denly appeared at the Ambigol Wells,
a point fifty milea northward mid niid-
.;     way on   the lino of railway  between
- Surras and Wady Haifa.    Here a little
■ hand of British soldiers—ontronohod
i     behind   a  small redoubt—held  with
bravery, which elicits a thrill of adini-
i ration, this point for three days,
i ngainst a thousand of the enemy who
commanded ouo cannon. Theso gallant men Bavod the Ambigol Wells
from thu enemy, but thu latter finding
themselves unable to capture the place,
completely destroyed three miles of
railway. They not only torn up rails
and sleepers, but tore duwn euibaiik-
nioiits. This they thought, would prevent thu railway from being again rebuilt, but iu one week the engineers
had it running again. Additional
troops nre now being hurried to the
front, and soon a respectable nrmy for
numbers as well as courage and discipline will be ib the Soudan. Since
the attack upon the Ambigol Wells,
which occurred early in December, the
Soudanese attacked the British outposts about the middle of the month;
and by thu lost telegraphic reports had
severed their line of comiounioatlou
northward. The probabilities are that
by this time communication has been
re-established, ns the British strength
is being rapidly iucreased. The situation in the Soudan is this, that the
Britisli must advance to Dongola, or
prepare for a continued struggle at
Wady Haifa, so long as the enemy lias
tho rich province of Dongola from
which to draw resources. Another
alternative is for tho Britisli to fall
hack tn Assouan, but this means the
loss of -enormous territory to Egypt,
and is of doubtful policy.—Bx,

The London Daily News Btatcs tliat
letters received from Arosa Bay announce the arrival there of the channel
i*i|uadrou nfter having experienced a
i.'.irritic i/alu while crossing the Bay of
Biscay. Tho two divisions of tho
aipiadron—ouo from Portsmouth and
the other from Plymouth--met off tho
Eddystonu on the Oth, and proceeded
uu their winter cruise, their intention
being to go first to Lisbon On tho
12th after entering tho Bay ot Biscay
both wind and sea began to increaso
and by the time the middle of tho Bay
was reached a tremendous sea wns running, and nil tho vessels shipped heavy
seas, notably the Iwo flag-ship* Mine
tanr and Agincourt. Beforo dark
extra precautions for the night and lhe
guns were all secured. During tho
night tlie squadron experienced tho
full force of the southeast gale, nud
tho ships all suffered from tho immense
ijuanlity of water that broke over
thom and which even found its way
into tlie "Ulcers1 cabins and mess
places. The men's moss* deck a wero
also flooded, A night of extreme discomfiture was passed. Tho excessive
amount of straining which tho ships
iiad undergone developed fresh defects
every hour. As the day broke tho
g;de began to moderate, and as soon as
it was daylight each ship wob called
upon to make a report of the damage
it had sustained. Brief as the gale had
been, tho results wero very serious.
The Minotaur had two cutters with
their davits and one whaler washed
oleiin from the ship, and lost a yawl
a jolly-boat and another whaler woro
smashed, and the aft part of tliu ship
presented the appearance of a cumpleto
wreck, her massive wooden davits
being nearly all washed away. The
iron davits wore bent and tho boats
that were not lost were so damaged as
to be unfit for further service. Tho
Agincourt had hoth her lower booms
washed awny. Har electric lights wore
also carried completely overboard and
lost. Her nettings fore uud aft, as
woll as the aft bridges, woro smashed,
and the navigating bridge was seriously
damaged by the bciis that broke over
the ship. The Sultan Buffered principally in her rigging and sails, and tha
Iron Duke and Monarch were a good
deal knocked nbout, but not to the
same extent as lhe uther ships. In
consequence of the damage which the
vessels received the admiral decided to
anchor in Arosa Bay in order that the
defects might bo made good. Tho
squadron arrived at Liabuti on Thurs
day last.

Gibraltar.
Every child has learned of thc wonderful fortress of Gibraltar, on tho
northern shore of tho Mediterranean,
Its namo has long ago passed into tho
language as a synonym for the impossible and impregnable. And yet Gibraltar has changed hands oftener than
most strategic points of anything liko
its strength aud importance.
The recurrence recently of the anniversary tf its capt uro by tho English
and Dutch fleets under command of
Sir George Rooke, renews interest in
the mighty giant at tho "gateway of
tho world." " Its gray brow of limestone juts into the great sea, bold and
domineering, nt the height of full 1,400
foot. Proud as the plume in the helmet of a grenadier tho English flag
floats from tho lofty eminence, as it
has floated for now nearly two centuries. On three sides the cliff, whereon
is the fort proper, ia almost perpendicular, and may be doomed inacccs-
aible. Great caverns have been scooped
into its tough old sideB from every
direction by tliu sea long before tho
ago of mnn, antl at n timo when the
towering rock was a ineie uprising in
it. Some nf these uro beautifully
arched and supported' by forests of
stalactites, extending from coiling to
floor. But moro wonderful even than
anything that nature has dune horo
are the works of man. Extending from
siilu lo side, parallel with the north
front of the promontory, galleries have
been pierced through tho solid rock.
These are nearly three miles in length,
and at ovory twelve yards ports are
cut through to tho.north- From these
great guns frown upon tho sea, seeming to scorn the puny attacks of any
power foolish enough tn stand before
them. Ou thu crest of the rock are
strongly intrenched barracks and fortresses, away above the world below.
Nearly 1,500 guns, the largest and
strongest in tlio world, are in place.
The regular garrison consists of between 0,000 and 8,000 men at all times.
A little town clusters at the base of
the battlements. Tho wliole colony is
kept under tliu strictest military discipline. Nu foreigner is permitted to
remain there, except for curtain designated periods, and then only when he
gives guarantees fur his good behavior,
Every yoar, on July 24th, thore is u
jubilee in Gibraltar, and tlie splendid
victory which wrested the place from
Spain 182 years ago is commemorated
with high glee. But nt all other times
Uio 1(1,000 people iu the town conduct
themselves with duo decorum, and
manage to livo mainly from one anoth-
(librallar is an historical spot. It
and Apes Hill, directly opposito it,
were holieved to bo thu pillars of Hercules. Then the strait was thought to
be the western boundary of tho world,
before the adventurous explorers exploded tho tine fancies of the earlier
geographers. Thore it was that the
leader of tho Saracens, with liis hardy
baud, climbed the rocksundbuit a fortress upon their heights. A castle
built fourteen years aftorward, in 1723,
still stands on the northern edge of
the cliff, I'V more than four cent lithe Saracens held the place,
but the Christians took it from them
in 11133, and planted the banner of tho
cross upon tho battlements, But thu
standard of tho faith was allowed to
wave but fifteen years, when tlio
Moors took it on ono of their raids
that for tlie time terrorized Europe.
Again Spain recovered it, and so
strengthened the works thut it was
deemed thoroughly impregnable. However, tho English captured it in 1701,
on July 2lth, ami the day is pomouus-
ly celebrated over since. lu 177!'

take (lie place, but after a memorablo
siege of livo ye.in gave up tho task
At one time thoro wero-10,000 men,
47 ships, and 1,000 pieces of artillery
in the combined forces. Iu September, 1782, what has been described
ns tlie "most dreadful cannonading
known iu history," was directed against
the British forces on the rock. Teu
enormous flouting batteries wero put in
use, but after sovoral hours of tho
fiercest fighting they weru destroyed.
The English lust ouly sixteen men in
the engagement, and thu fame of Gibraltar as being beyond tho power of
man to capture was established probably forever.
A Woman Kills a Panther.
Mr. George Greenleaf, accompanied
by his wife, was returning home from
Clayton, in the mountains of Georgia,
ou Wednesday night. It was about
nine o'clock and, as is the custom of
the country, they both wnlkod up ono
of the littlo hills while tho mules and
wagon ascended, their little boy being
tho driver. Suddenly n rustle was
heard in the bushes, nnd peering out
in the darkness could be seen what
looked like two balls of fire. It proved
to be a large panther. Aa if by instinct Greenleaf opened his knifo, and
as the beast sprang at liim ho mndo a
limgo, only to drive tho knifo into his
wife's nrm, she having thrown herself
upon him at the Bight of dangor. Ho
dropped the knife and fell under tho
second spring of the panther, Tho
beast, evidently maddened at tho scent
of blood, was about to insert its teeth
into Mr. Greenleaf, when his wife,
who had picked up tho knife, acting
under the Inspiration of desperation,
mnde a clean cut at the huust's throat.
Tho panther gave n pitiful cry, rolled
over and died. Tho cry reached tho
cars of somo hunters near by aud soon
a number of thom wero on tho spot, to
find that a woman had accomplished
what they had been six weeks trying
to do.
A Lion od a Locomotive.
Ono day recontly a Utah and Northern train was nearing Silver Bow,
M. T., and as tho locomotive passed
some cliffs the engineer saw a dark
object spring on tho cow-catcher.
Nothing further being noticed, lio
thought that possibly it waB n lump of
dirt, which hnd rolled off again. The
fireman went to oil the engine shortly
after, and discovered a large animal
crouching on tho cow-catcher. Upon
seeing the fireman the beast started
toward him along tho foot-board, the
man getting back iuto tho cab barely
in time to save himself. The engineer recogiiizod in the animal a huge
mountain lion, and oponod tho steam
whistle, tho sound of which frightened
tho strango visitor bo that it jumped
off. A subsequent search wns mado
noar thc spot, and the body of lhe
lion was found, its neck having boon
broken by tho full. Thc carcass
weighed 300 pounds. —S. F, Chronicle.
