current Events and Opinions.
Tliere in a current impression
that trees nro tlie origin of malarial
influences. It is a popular fallacy.
So far from this theory being the
true one, they actuully neutralize
aiul keep down malaria. Those
who live in tlicm, or spend much of
their time in them, are not victims
of malaria. The ground in the
woods is damp and cool. The trees
take up all the surplus moisture, so
that tlio surface of the earth is kept
sweet. Every tree is "a living,
breathing organism." Dr, Daniel
Milliken, in a paper read before the
Congress of Forestry at Cincinnati,
declared that "trees conduce to health,
and the moro dees the more health."
That iH a broad and emphatic statement. It is frequently said that
A and B have too many trees
around their dwellings, Now, if
every tree hus a decided sanitary
influenco, there cannot be too many
unless they shut out too much sunlight or interfere with the free circulation of air, And this old sanitarian discourses further: "Perhaps
the most obvious modification of
climate hy forests is in arresting
wind. This power seems to be overlooked by city-bred persons, anti by
many who have been bred in the
country. A little investigation in
the company of the beasts of the
fiold on a bleak, windy day, as they
stand on the lee side of tho trees,
will show that even a single tree
lias a wake of calm stretching away
to a very considerable distance.
The thinnest hedge will produce
something like a calm in its neighborhood, and a forest of deciduous
trees absolutely ttrrests thc wind
near the earth. A windy climate
is, in general, u bud climate. Wind
interferes with health as well as
comfort; is ruinous to invalids and
interferes with good ventilation, und
tho moderate, uniform warmth
which should prevail in our houses.
A windy climato is a climate of
catarrhs and consumptions. The
more trees the less wind, and the
more trees the more health." Now
bring on your bears; bring on tho
malaria and all other objections.
Slash down the trees, because somo
chronic grumbler thinks they ure
in the way and.breed miasma. But
hear this sanitarian further: "Ozone,
which conduces to health iu a high
degree, is produced abundantly by
tho trees and the slow oxidation of
essential oils, which lend their perfume to Howers and aromatic plants.
It is especially produced where turpentine is oxidized in the presence
of water. It is no surpriso, then,
to learn that the atmosphero of forests is highly charged with ozone,
while in the nir of cities there is
none. Ozone destroys miasma and
disease germs, and disinfects decomposing animal matter. Tho popular opinion regards tho woods as a
breeder of malaria—a vulgar error.
Tho malarial poison is engendered
only whero thero is air, moisture
and sunlight. Abundant sunlight
is one of the essentials. In the
primeval woods of all countries
malarial fevers are unknown. The
pioneers suffered from malarial
fevers, not because they lived in the
woods, but because they were compelled to clear away the forest and
admit the sunlight and turn the
virgin soil. We may even go so
far as to say that plant lifo is antagonistic to muliifin. Even a thin
or narrow belt of woods will defend
a strip of territory from tho malarial influence." Tlio essayist believed
that in certain soils trees may be
so massed about dwellings as to
keep the soil too damp, but deemed
it hardly possible. Now, in small
towns and cities, one of the troubles
is that tho surface soil about dwellings becomes saturated with organic
matter. The waste of houses goes
into the soil. If that is not purified in somo way, as soon as the
soil becomes overcharged it breeds
fevers and a whole class of zymotic
diseases, Malaria, of course, breeds
in such places. All these diseases
are supposed to originate in low organisms bred iu the soil. Now, tho
tree operates as a sponge. It sucks
up all this unwholesome saturation,
distils it, and ox hales a part of it,
purified, iuto the atmosphere. The
remainder goes to thb building up
of the tree. It grows fat on the
very soil it purifies. The strong,
healthy tree searches everywhere for
food, Its roots and small fibres
penetrate the earth in all directions.
The treo sweetens the earth and
sweetens the dwelling, and the more
good, wholesome frees there are
about a homestead tho better, provided they do not shut out tho sun
too much. Thero nevor was a more
mischievous error than the one that
trees aro unhealthy about a dwelling, Whenever a group of gum
trees, weeping willows or other ornamental trees, known as "gross
feeders," are found about a dwelling
there will bo little chanco for mal-
uviii there,   "Dr. Millikin cited the
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1886.
NUMBER If)
case of Ins own town of Hamilton
0., where the malarial poison came
down tho trongh of the Great
Miami, to ft line where trees were
abundant, and there ceased. In
another case cited, the malarial
poison was borne from the same
source by prevailing winds, up a
long slope of more than a mile and
over the crest of a hill. Upon this
hill for fifty years a certain houso
has been almost uninhabitable by
reason of malarial disease, but at
another house, near by, protected
by a small grove of sugar maples,
malarial disease has been unknown.
The cemetery at Hamilton, an ancient grove of scrub oaks, thickly
planted with white pines and other
conifers, has absolutely arrested a
malarial influence coming from the
north." Malaria in the Western
States was not found in the forest.
But wherever oleurings were made,
the sunlight let in and the rich
mold turned up to the heat of the
sun and the influence of the winds,
there malaria was bred in its rankest form. These facts are worth
remembering. Even a small lawn
about the homestead will breed
malaria if there are no trees to
create sanitary influences. The
reason is that in this country the
grass needs constant artificial irrigation to keep it alive in a hot and
rainless summer. The soil becomes
saturated and finally sours. One
may detect this deleterious influence
by passing along in the night-time
in front of some lawn which has
been excessively irrigated and which
is bare of trees. There is a sour
and musty smell, or what many call
the smell of ague—an odor, by the
way, which is always detected in
the new and rank soils along river
bottoms in ague districts. Now,
such a grass plot frequently breeds
disease from the causes pointed out.
But if sullicient trees are cultivated,
say in groups, on the lawn and by
tho fences, tho difficulty is readily
corrected. Shrubs may have some
sanitary influence, but the best correctives are trees of rapid growth,
and of these there are none bettor
than the eucalyptus and tho willow.
The lawn ought never to be unhealthy, and will not be if proper
caution is exercised, But a sour
grass plot, or a soil about the house
supersaturated with moisture, will
breed disease in town or country.
There is one other sanitary gain
which should not be ignored. California is n windy, arid country.
Trees modify climate. In some
souse they cau be made to create
new climates. There aro no better
climates iu this state than iu the
forests on the slopes of tho Sierra,
where the fir nnd the pine flourishes,
or along the Ooasb Range, where
thu redwood, tho madrono and the
chestnut oak are found. Elevation,
of course, modifies climate, but trees
even more. Tho tree should not
only be planted to keep down mal
aria, but to resist tho scourge of the
winds. Some day the "blasting
norther" will cease in this state, but
never so long as there are great
treeless, arid plains three or four
hundred miles long. The "norther"
is either bred in tho desert, or in
the hot and treeless valleys of the
interior. The "norther" cannot prevail in extensive forests. The
humidity found there destroys it.
It cannot prevail far from tho land,
the humidity of tho ocean destroying it. The sanitary influence of
trees has been iu a great measue
overlooked in this state. Otherwise
we Bhould not so often witness an
airing of the popular fallacy that
trees about the homestead have an
unhealthy influence,—S, F. Bulletin.

Knturttity Mornliitf, Feb. 20, IHHU.
At tho annual meeting of tho Do-
itmniou Alliance, which lately took
Qplace at Toronto, reports wero received from a large number of districts respecting tho progress of
[temperance) work. Altogether tho
Wlook sooms to bo very encouraging, and it was confidently predicted
jtluit tho total suppression of the
(tmilic is only a question of time.
''From counties in whicli the Scott
[Act has beon passed the reports
Sworn very conflicting. In some
'counties ttio difficulties in tho wuy
Bof securing an enforcement of tho
'act are very great, and tho trallic
-.goes on openly because of the lack
,of adequato machinery for its suppression. It has been the general
{experience that the Scott Act works
■-fairly woll in rural districts, but
(badly in most of tho cities and
towns. These reports havo u special
--interest for the people of British
(Columbia in view of the fact that
the Scott Act has nevor been applied to any portion of this prov-
jjinoe, and there is a desire in some
'districts that it should be tried.
The Settlement Bill.
In our last issuo wo published an
extract from a well-written article
I-from the Victoria Post on the Kootenay bill, showing how groundless
innd absurd are the efforts to make
[capital out of that measure against
[the present government.     Jn the
Post' of Monday we find an article
J dealing with the Settlement Bill,
land we tako the liberty of extracting some paragraphs from this ulso:
"Unlike   tite  Kootenay  Bill,  this
was    emphatically   a   government
measure, the full responsibility for
which no minister could evade, if
lie would.     Let us see, first of all,
" how   the   house   divided   on  this
1 measure:
AYES.

"Mr. Theo. Davie was absent.
I Had he been in the houso his vote
i would have been counted with the
) ayes. Mr. Galbraith was also absent, and liad he, voted it would
. also have beeu with tho ayes, as he
* freely admitted the measure to be
in the true interest of the country.
j Mr. Grant had uot the courage of
! his convictions, and consequently
i shirked the vote altogether.    Had
1 it been otherwise, his vote would
, also have  been  recorded  with the
• ayes. Thus it will be seen that,
;c with a full house, and no funking,
t thi vote would have actually stood
2 19 for and 5 against the bill. Or
, if the whole house of 25 could have
j i been taken and tho speaker (who
. was well-known to be in favor of
.. the measure) counted, there would
1 have been 20 for and 5 against the
| Settlement Bill. It seems most ex*
I traordinary that the government
should receivo so much abuse on
| account of a measure approved of
1 by such an overwhelming majority
, of a house fresh from the constitu*
i encies. It is un imputation upon
1 four-fifths of tho people's represen-
i tatives. It is an imputation upon
' four-fifths, or more, of the electors,
, for the principal subjects grouped
i in that measure were discussed at
: the hustings, and the great body of
I the electors sent representatives to
vote just as they did." Our Victoria cotemporary seems to put tlie
case fairly, and we do not seo how
i\ | it would be possible for the opposition successfully to use such a
weapon as the settlement bill ngainst
the party now in power. It can
be done only by suppressing and
misrepresenting tho facts.
Railway Lands.
'      Now  that the Dominion purlin
i ment  is  about to open, and the
representatives of the province are
gathering about the federal capital,
i attention may be directed again to
the very unsatisfactory position of
lands lying within the railway belt.
Among the most serious obstacles
in the way of agricultural development in this district havo been the
want of titles to railway lands and
the absence of good ronds.   These
two things depend to some extent
upon   each, other, or, rather,  the
unsatisfactory position of land titles
within the railway belt is in a degreo responsible for the badness of
the roadi   A great deal of this.
land Ii h*ld by squatters.   These
squatters have a promise that their
rights will be respected whon the
land conies into market, but until
a title has boon obtained they pay
no taxes, nnd thus escape without
contributing their share towards
the cost of mnking roads. Tiio railway lands which stilt romuin unoccupied are also free from taxation.
If they had been open to pre-emption or purchase, many of them
would have been taken up long ago,
und would now have been paying,
like other lands, towards local improvements. It happens that the
lands included in these two nontaxable classes comprise a considerable portion of the lands of this
district, and this large area contributes nothing at all to the revenue; and lands for which titles
have been issued are assessed extra
to cover the cost of making roads
to lands which pay no taxes at all!
This is most unfair. But the
worst feature of the railway land
grievance is not its freedom from
taxation. If peoplo could bo persuaded that tho promise of final
adjustment was a sufficient guarantee for final justice, they would not
decline to take up railway lands
because of being exempt from taxation. But although tliere seems
to be no reasonable doubt that
squatters who have taken up lands
for agricultural purposes will eventually be confirmed in possession of
their holdings, when tbey have complied with the conditions of tho
law, there is in the public mind
sufficient doubt to operate as a
serious bar to the settlement of
these lands. We arc informed by
persons in the municipality of Surrey that quite a number of immigrants intending to take up lands
there have gone south to Washington Territory for the sole reason
tliat a title to lands in the railway
belt could not be obtained, It is
much to bo regretted that this ]
grievance, so long existing and so
disastrous, has not been removed.
We hope our representatives will
insist upon its prompt adjustment
as a condition of their continued
support of the government.

A Steam Grist Mill.— From a report of the proceedings of Surrey council it will bo seen that n scheme is
being discussed for the establishment
of a steam mill at Brownville, opposite
this city, for the manufacture of flour,
oatmeal and feed. The project is an
excellent one, and ought to receive
very serious consideration. There aro
thousands of acres in Surrey alone, to
say nothing of adjoining municipalities,
where wheat and oats can be grown
most successfully, and if a mill was
established whero this grain oould be
conveniently and profitably handled,
these lands would be at once brought
under cultivation. Hitherto there hat
been no market in this part of the
country for wheat i.n bulk, as there
have been no mills, and the people
have been obliged to import flour, feed
and oatmeal from the sound and California. We hope the mill scheme will
he a success, and it will undoubtedly
be of great advantage to Surrey and
tho adjoining settlements,
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
Thk Coal Harbor Extension,
Yesterday afternoon, on the arrival of
the steamer, the following gentlemen
as a deputation representing property
owners through which the extension
will pass, namely, Messrs. W. Norman Bole, B. Douglas, W. R. Wilson,
and H. V. Edmonds, waited on Mr.
II, Abbott, superintendent of the B.C.
section of the O. P. R. Mr. Bole
briefly explained the matters in respeot ot which the deputation Bought
for information, and Mr. Abbott explained that the company would deposit
their proposed plan in the land registry office at New Westminster, and
appoint a competent person to value
the lands required. If the value so
ascertained was not satisfactory, then
each side appointed an arbitrator,
who in cuso of disagreement appointed an umpire in manner provided
by the act of 1879 and company's
act, In caso the whole water front
was required, every facility for access
to the water would be given. Mr,
Abbott said every facility for seeing
maps and pinna would be afforded,
and he would be glad to see the deputation at any time, nnd give them
information. Tho deputation, after
thanking Mr. Abbott for his courteous
reception, withdrew.
The Feuhy.— The steam ferry often
lauds at the foundry wharf, instead of
at the slip at the foot of Mary Btreet,
nud thia change causes much inconvenience to persons from tho othor
side coming over tu do business. The
ferry slip is right in tho business part
of thu city, and packages may he conveyed to or from it without trouble.
It is very different, however, with the
foundry wharf, which is a considerable
distance from the principal commercial
houses. Wo ute informed that Capt.
Grant objects to lauding at the slip
because it is not .suitable for a ferry
lauding, and the boat is apt to suffer
injury. It wns the intention of the
council to build a new slip laat year;
but there were so many extra expenses
incurred during the yoar in connection
with the reserve sales and tho railway
bonus, that it was decided to postpone
that work for nnother year. We beliovo the council will build u uew slip
this year, and we hopo the work will
lie undertaken at the earliest possible
moment, It will uot do to let the
business interests of the city suffer ou
nccount of the inefficiency of a ferry
towards which wo have already contributed a large sum; and if it really
injures the boat to laud at the old slip,
Capt. Grant is quito justified in taking
her elsewhere until a proper landing
has been provided. Wo hope this
matter will be taken up by the council
next Monday night.
Mr. Mubekly's Exploration-*.—
Mr. Walter Moberly, C.E., seems to
havo an abiding senso of the importance of keeping alive the fact that
much credit is due to him for having
discovered Eagle pass. He sends the
following statement to tho Winnipeg
Free Press: "It must bu a matter of
the greatest interest to atl Canadians
to seo that Colonel Stanley, Secretary
for tho Colonies, has placed on record
tho decision of the Imperial government to use the Canadian Pacific railway aa ouo uf their great military thoroughfares between England aud the
EaBt, When I entered the service of
that distinguished officer, Major-Gen-
oral Richard Clement Moody, of the
Royal Engineers, in 1859, he sent me
to commence thu city of New Westminster, as ho very properly condemned the site thnt had been chosen before
his arrival iu the colony for the capital
of British Columbia, and which was on
the south bank of the Fraser river and
close tu Fort Langley. It was known
as the town of 'Derby.' His prinoipal
object iu changing tho site for tho
capital were to have it advantageously
situated for commercial purposes, aa
ho foresaw the certainty of Ita becoming a great commercial city, and also
from a military and imperial point of
view, and he fully anticipated the time
whon tho important city of Canada on
tho west coast would extend from
Fraser river to Burrard Inlet, and a
truly magnificent harbor for aoa-going
vcbboIs secured It was upon my representation to Colonel Moody and to
Sir James Douglas that the main thor-
oughfate hy the valley of tho Fraser
river was adopted after tho Harrison*
Lillooet wagon road waB partially
opened, and it was again upon my
urgent representations to the succeeding Imperial governor, Mr. Frederic
Seymour, nfter Captain PalliBser's expedition had reported thu impossibility
of a tine for a road hy the waters of
thu Columbia rivor that I succeeded lu
getting the Imperial government to
havo those explorations made, and Mr.
Seymour appointed mu assistant surveyor* gen era! and placed those ex-
)loraliniii in my hands, which resulted
u tho discovery of the Eagle Pass and
(he proper linu for tho Canadian Paoifio
railway through British Columbia; and
I think I am not at all exaggerating,
when I claim that through my exertions
tho Imperial government have been
induced to tako tho nlt-impurtaiit step
they havo now done, and whieh means
that law and ordor, the investment of
British capital, immigration nud the
oouscqueiit development and prosperity
of the country are now secured."
Tho houso met on Monday, and
spent most of the day discussing
finances.    A   motion was passed for tt
copy of the agreement mndo with the
Kootenay reclamation company and
the papers relating to the English Hay
naval reserve, and a committee was
appointed to enquire into tho printing
and binding of the statutes and sessional papers. Mr. Beaven moved
for another batch of returns relating
to finances, upon which a long debate
took place without reaching a conclusion. In reply to Mr. Heaven, Hon.
Mr, Smithe gave an explanation of
tho causes which led to offering Hon.
Mr, Duck the position of finance minister. A long debate followed in
which the Fort Simpson land sale and
other matters came up for discussion.
In fact, it was a sort of field day for the
opposition.
l.v all imitations of the Myrtle Navy
tobacco yet attempted, either inferior
stock has been used or the plug has been
made a trifle lighter hi weight. The latter defect is apt to escape attention of
tho consumer until he finds that he is
smoking a greater numbsr of plugs than
before. The Myrtle Navy is made three
pings to the pound and each plug is carefully weighed.
Bible society Meeting.
The annual meeting of tho New
Westminster branch of the Upper Canada Bible Society, held in the Presbyterian church on Thursday night,
was largely attended. It was the largest Bible Society meeting, we believo,
ever held in this city, Tho chair was
occupied by Sheriff Armstrong, president of the socioty. After devotional
exercises and reading a portion of the
scriptures, the secretary, Rev. It.
Jamieson, read the annual report. The
amount collected laat year was $103.50.
There were 120 subscribers, and nll
had pnid their subscriptions oxcept 10.
During the year 82 bibles and 20 testaments had been sold from tho depository, amounting tu §64.90, and 12
bibles had been given away, must of
them to prisoners in the gaol. Tho
total issue of bibles and testaments
was 125, valued at $70. Thc total income of the society had been $238.88,
and the expenditure $170, leaving a
balance of $02.88. Tho whole amount
of the subscription last year had been
donated to the parent society. The
roport was adopted.
Rev. Mr. Watson was called upon
for an address, but excused himself on
the ground that it was understood he
was to speak only iu cose of a lack of
speakers. He believed two addresses
quito sufficient fur one meeting. It
was information we, wanted in such
matters as this. There waB nu moro
important subject than the bible, and
we only needed information about its
work and its conquests to stimulate ua
to increased activity. It was gratifying to know that there hnd been already about 100,000,000 copies of the
bible, or parts of it, circulated in 200
different dialects.
Itov. Mr. Lennie was noxt called
upon nnd addressed himself to the application of the Bible. Ho said it was
tho foundation and basis of civilization,
and without it we could not hnve the
truo religion. It was an old book, nnd
iu these days there wns a tendency to
tun after uew notions and discard this
book. It was of no benefit unless it
was read, juat as the implements of
agriculture or of wnr wero useless unless thoy wero employed for somo practical purpose. Some people took grent
pains to inform themselves in wordiy
matters, but neglected to study tliis
most important of nil books. He believed in education, but that system of
education which leaves out tho Bible
is very incomplet, because the Bible is
our best guide both for this world and
the world to como. It was important
that every one should have set times
to read tho Bible, and that it ahould
bo read systematically.
Hev. Mr. McCrao said it was a little
over 80 years since the organization of
the Biblo Society, and its origin was

this society the Bible was literally precious, for it required the labor of one
man a whole year to purchase one

travelled 15 milea to rend the word,
and whole parishes were without a

we must be struck with the remarkable
progress made. The work had gone
on quietly and silently, hut no ono

Rev. Mr. Taylor mado a very interesting address upon the practical work
of Biblo distribution, relating somo
striking incidents which camo under
his personal observation iu the lumbering districts of ths Ottawa river.
Men were found there who had not
seen a Bible for yoars (some of them
hod never seen it), and tho eagerness
with whieh somo of them received the
word was most encouraging. Our first
duty, he said, waa to read the Bible
ourselves, and our second to send it to
others. That waa tho object of the
Bible Socioty.
The secretary proposed the following

It responds by publishing tho note
which Mr. Kennedy sent to il with his
letter. Tlie note, which is addressed
to tlie editor of the 'Times is ns fellows:
Sib,—Unclosed you will please find a
correspondence in mnmi-jci'ipt which I
.sent to thc Cuhimlihui, but which he returned, "not having space" to publish it.
This is the second time that the editor of

We havo no hesitation in saying
that, Mr. Kennedy's loiter i.i a gross
misrepresentation of fnqts. Thc letter
intended for publication camo to this
oflico shortly before noon on tho day
beforo publication day. Mr. Kennedy
brought it in person and left it' with
tho request that tho editor would read
it over and.eee if there was anything
objectionable in h, aud ho (Mr. Kennedy) would call in tho afternoon. Tlio
editor read the letter and found it contained a great many statements which
ought not to go to the public without
correction and explanation, The letter
nnd tho comments deemed necessary
would have occupied not less than u
column and n half, and so much room
was not available in that issuo of The
Columiuan*. Mr. Kennedy did not
call in the afternoon us he promised.
He called next morning, however, and
asked why the lotter had not been
published. Ho was told that room
could not bo found for it, but if he
would leavo the lotter it would cortain-
ly nppenr in tho next issue. Mr. Kennedy thereupon remarked that tho
letter hnd beon written in a hurry und
ho really didn't remember what was
in it; and that he would take it and
look over it again. He took it away
nnd never offered it again to this journal for publication. When Mr. Kennedy states that the letter was "returned" with tho remark that wo had
not space for it, he does not adhere to
the truth, for ho got it at his own request, and was distinctly assured that
it would be published if he so wished.
We have never on any occasion refused
to publish n letter from Mr. Kennedy
to which his name was attached, The
Times has vindicated its veracity in
this matter, and we uow put the onus
where it belongs.

Accepting Mr, Kennedy's statement as

Tho pooplo of our usually quiet nnd
law-abiding municipality nre at present
inn stnto of some excitement caused
by an audacious case of land jumping.
An attempt is being made to jump Mr.
James Irving'* (son-of Mr. A dnm Irving) claim. This claim comprises lot
2*11, group. 1, and wns applied for by
Mr, Adam Irving in 1870; but owing
to some irregularities whicli can be accounted for in the provincial laud offico
a crown grant wns not issued for it,
although tho necessary improvements
were made. Tho present holder. Mr.
James Irving, held undisputed posses*
sion until tho early part of 1 him week
when Mr. Gregory, a railway employee
at Port Hammond, began operations in
tho wny of building a honso on the lot,
A few weeks ago Mr. Gregory nsked
Mr. Irving if ho would soil his claim,
and said that ho had in his possession
S31G to bind tho bargain. Mr. Irving
would net agree to a sale on nny terms,
and it was supposed that the case, as
fnr as buying or sellimjof the claim,
was settled. A short time afterwards
Mr. Irving suspeoted that Mr. Gregory
was going to jump his lot and asked
him if such wns the case. Mr. Gregory
most emphatically denied the charge,
stating thnt he was not a man to do
Buch business, and threatened with
personal violence nny person who
would think him capable of being
guilty of molesting any holiest man,
much less depriving him of his just
rights. This assurance convinced Mr.
Irving that thero waB nothing to fear
and that Mr. Gregory would not attempt such contemptibly mean business as he suspected, never dreaming
that "Coming events cast thoir shadows
before." On Saturday last, 13th inst.,
a bcow load of building material waa
landod at Port Hammond. Arrangements were secretly mado to team the
material from the landing. On Sun
day a carpenter wns employed, who,
by tho way, afterwards refused to work
nt the disreputable job. At thu timo
of writing the house is in course of
construction on Mr. Irviug's claim,
Mr. Irving has entered n suit iu tho
supreme court against Mr. Gregory,
and it remains to bo seen whether personal rights can be invaded with impunity in n country which boasts of its
adherence to the old ting which is tho
symbol of justico whurover unfurled.

Moral Reform for the State.
Editor Columbian.—In lost Saturday's issuo of your paper, under the
heading "Some Queries aud Suggestions," a suggestion was thrown out which
requires amplification. The suggestion
I refer ta was, in effect, that aU those
having at heart moral reform for the
state should fonn themselves into
society or league for the purpose of "Intelligently comprehending, incessantly
agitating, and constantly furthering, by
every legitimate means in their power
(hut chiefly and especially through the
polls) all moral reforms which they can
discern to be desirable and possible." A
falso public sentiment has divorced
religion (and with it religious and moral
principles) from politics, to the detriment
of both. The aim nnd object, in the
broadest terms, of such a society as has
been hinted at would be to bring to bear
and impress upon legislation, in a prac*
tical and irresistible manner, tho pure
morals and active Christianity of the
Bible. Of course, the grand objective
point of tho society— harmoniously consistent with its wider aim—would be the
total suppression and ultimate annihilation of the liquor traffic, which, entrenched, as it is, iu the very sink of
moral rottenness, would constitute iu
its downfall the most radical moral reform
imaginable.
Besides dealing with moral issues, tho
society could take up and discuss, iu the
onler of their importance, all questions
affecting the welfare of the community
or the stato. Such a society (considered
apart from its prime ami chief object),
composed ns it Bhould be of persons qualified to vote in municipal, provincial, and
Dominion olections (or any of these), and
conducted on parliamentary or business
principles, would prove su incalculable
boon to the yo-uig men, especially, of
any community—enabling them to take
au intelligent interest in all questions
affecting the commonwealth, and fitting
tlicm in a great measure to assume the
positions of trust and responsibility to
which in course of time thoy might
lie called,
A society such ns has been suggested
could meet once a mouth (or oftener if
desired), seriously discuss all political
questions —beginning with the moral
ones—obtain all necessary information,
arrive at conclusions, formulate a policy,
put forward issues, light those issues
through any and every political contest
wliere it wmild he deemed advantageous,
and finally, by the help of God, win the
day in tho interest of moral reform and
good government.
In a conversation the otlicr day, a
worthy and respectable citizen (not, however, a strict temperance man), in answer to an inquiry as to whether he had
attended tlio temperance lecture recently
delivered hy Miss White in this city,
said, in nearly these words: "What's
the use of all this lecturing about temperance? they can't tell us anythiug uew
on the subject! I know well enough
that liquor is bad, but still I'll have my
glass just as' long as the 'stuff* Is going!
Why don't the temperance people vote the
whole business out of existence i That's
the way to get at it! I'd vote for prohibition myself, quick 1" Tho same citizen also related that, in conversation
with a hard-drinkor, the latter had, confidentially, admitted that he wonld be
only too glad of an opportunity to cast
his ballot against the fell traffic that was
the bane of his life. It is safe to assume
that hundreds, at least, of votes, even
iu British Columbia, aro lost to the country's highest interests, In our political
contests (either by being indifferently
polled or not polled at all), whioh by a
moderate amount of judicious agitation,
ond the proper rallying cry, could be
arrayed on the side of moral reform,

Chicago, Feb. 19.—All Chicago
railroads having transcontinental connections are booking passengers to San
Francisco at the following rates: First-
class unlimited, $70.40; first-class limited, 8(10.20; second-class or emigrant,
unlimited, 832. This is a reduction of
abou §35 on first-class rates. Kates to
Portland, Oregon, and to California,
via the Northern Pacific railway, remain unchanged, no reduction huving
been announced. A prominent railroad official, in commenting on the
situation, this morning said: "The
action of the Pacific road in announcing
the sule of unlimited tickets at a reduced rate meant that tho old tariff
would probably never again be imposed, as the preseut rate allowed them
nearly three cents a mile, which was
an equitable return for so long a haul,

London, Feb. 14,—The Pull Mall
Gazette publishes an outline of what it
asserts is Gladstone's plan for the granting of home rule to Ireland, The publication attracts a great deal of attention,
uot because it is necessarily a correct
statement of the premier's present Intention, but because it is generally believed to be put forth, willi his knowledge, us another feature to provoke
dltoiifjsiou and elicit tbe views of other
publicists,- without oommltting Gladstone to anything. Tlio present plan,
as published in tlie Gazette, is vague as
■tn many important details, hut It expressly prov hies for the establishment of
a parliament iu Dublin. Thia body is
to consist of but ono chamber. Its
members are to be returned by the same
electorate ub is now established by the
latest extension of tbe franchise-. The
Irish peerage is to have no other parliamentary representation, either in Dublin or London, than is provided by tiie
twenty-tivo Irish roproaciitativo peers
now Hitting in the Imperial house at
Loudon. The country is toberedist-
ricted for the purposes of parliamentary
elections, iii such a way that the mem.

Valley road on Kensington prairie, on
condition that he construct a proper culvert and cover the same with suitable

to aasi»t in construction of said mill.
Tho clerk informed the council that be
had written to two practical gentlemen
(Messrs. Nelson k Smith) and invited
them to attend tbis meeting, as possibly
they could give the council valuable information hi regard to the matter. Both
gentlemen were present and addressed
the council eu the mill scheme as outlined; both expressed themselves as well
satisfied as to the advantages likely to
accrue and the ultimate success of the
establishment of a tirst class mill. .Mr.
Smith was rather in favor of having a
two-roller mill, fitted with all the requisite machinery, whilo Mr, Nelson seemed
to rather favor tho burr stones. On motion, Messrs, Nelson k Smith were requested to prepare and submit at next

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of the great central exhibition opened nt Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This is a separate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about f>0 feet by 40 feot, with o porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
aud annim nee.*! to nil in broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that oompany, aud
that Joseph Ruse, of OS King-street
West, represents the oompany. Inside
no pains have beon spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit the Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he wiU find a little paradise j
of music. Here arc decorations, baud- :
some pictun ■> of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of tho most artistic and unique designs.
The display of theso instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
geuius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers. Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design are found hero
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces tho visitor at the extreme
end as he enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every style and design to unit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held tliere 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
publie favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might ecem.
The Company's success in honors, liome
and international, is something remark
able, Tho exhibit on tho grounds is
certainly attractive aud will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper ou Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Dominion Orgau and Piano Company
at tho opening of the London Fair, In
bis uddress from tlie platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impc
tus Exhibitions gave to evory industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition. Belgium, and cited ns an illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ and Pinno Company
there. - He said that tbis Company (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest tbo judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from Knglaml, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celobratod
for their skill and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that thc
Instruments of this company-were superior to any tbey had ever Been, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, Um Company

Lusdok, Feb. 8.—It ia suid lhat
| d-d Hartington, ex-Liberal Secretary
War, Mr. George .T. (losclien, Sir
•ory JameB, Mr. Gladstone,'a former
[tprqey-Gfeneral, tho Duke of Argyll,
d the Puke of Westminster aro tie-
f<tiatini' to do great tilings.    All of
!ese gentlemen wero prominent iu the
[adatom; councils during his previous
j«e of power, but tlioy have been left
Lit in tho formation of his present
■■vernmeiit. Tbe Conservatives affect
believe   that  the Grand Old Man
1-dn't know what lie was about when
■ ignored these honorable politicians;
at thoy will now turn rebels against
*o Liberal party nnd smash it into
(ish smithereens, Tho story circulat-
i is that Hat'tington and the others
e a inspiring for
THK FOUMATION DF A NRW PARTY
be   called   the   National Liberal.
1'ieru is to bo a sort of central orgaui-
iJtion, which will throw Us solid voto
-.cry timo against radical Irish mens*
l-es and iu favor of local conservative
|\ea, It is to be the Uritish mugwump
Irty ami will stand ready to deal witli
Iliichovcr party will allow it to rule,
ilvrays burring iho Irish." Tlio
'ides say it is going to bo a big thing,
|td  to  have at least 100 votes in tlm
ISuso of commons. Even tlie Speetator
ul   tho  ftconomisl,   hitherto  strong
iberal organs and  extremely Glnd-
oney, pmfeBs to   be afraid thut if
jrd  Hartington   Bhould  choose  to
Wt himself for the purpose lie would
i ''able to muster around liim a com-
Ret phalanx of 100 voters who, com*
led  with  (lie Conservatives, would
fissess siiflieient slreiijftli to defeat the
ifernment    whenever   such   defeat
[luiUI inure tn the benefit of tho ein-
re."
HAUTINUTOS's INFLUENCE.
But whether the present Gladstone
'Verument be long or short lived, it
safe to say that unless its overthrow
all depend on a single vote, Lord
artingtoii will never be able to pull
down. Iu tho tirst placo the Lib-
lals can count on his iiioltensiveness
icause of his lack id energy. In fact,
s Lordship is quite indolent. His
'edilection for elegant delay in every-
ing wouhf be culled laziness in a
uimon man. When Salisbury resign-
1 the British govornment were excit-
uver the Irish question and the
Moderate Liberals and the Conserva-
■yes fairly begged Lord Hnrtington to
jcome their louder in combination as
rnew party whose mission would be
' "preserve tho integrity of tho em-
e." But hu couldn't make up his
, ind. Then tho Times, it is generally
Slieved, inspired from Osborne, boom-
|'l him for prime minister ut the head
u coalition ministry. The proposi-
'iiii du/ed Hartington, and he remain*
I'i irresolute. He is a nun who has to
driven to do anything, and even if
;- could be driven to accept the posi-
' li uf head of the proposed National
'iberal party, he would never lead it.
esides nll this, tho man is perfectly
tt united with un unquenchable rover-
ice for (he personality of Mr. Glad-
lone, and this strango semi-idolatry
ould always render him limp, half-
siiirtcd, and ineffective, even if he
mid suimiK.ii enough resolution to nt-
mpt to lend un opposition.
(ILADSTONEH   POLICY.
Mr. Gladstone seems to have retired
ithiu himself since completing his
Ubinet. This is by no means a com-
romUe ministry. It is a homo-vole,
ut aiH (-separation cabinet. Every
ne of the members who has up to date
uclured his policy to his constituents
us openly favored home-rale for Ire-
ind and as openly opposed separation.
(have authority for stating that Mr.
-ladstone exacted promises from all
' . ministers to agree with him on this
olicy us a condition of holding office,
hus he -inters power with a united,
orkablo cabinet, and with a policy
| hich it is safe to say tho Parnellites
avo pledged themselves to support,
id which will leavo the "integrity of
ie empire" party uo ground for effect*
-e opposition. In this stato of affairs
ii idle to make conjectures as to
hut the naturo of the Irish measure
HI bu which Mr. Gladstone will pro-
use, for the bill can not be framed
iv a long time yet. Mv. Gladstone
as especially declared to your cor-
■spotident that he will make no state*
I tent of tho Irish policy he meditates
£ ntil the budget is reported. This
ontpotienient is agreeable to Mr. Pur-
ell, for he realizes the advantages of
hat Addison called "the economy of
eluy," and knows that so long as Mr.
ladstone is willing to do the fair
iin if, the further oil' from the present
tcitement he puts off his attempts the
mro successful his attempts are likely
i be.
THK  PltOPOSBD IBI8H PARLIAMENT.
I learned to-night that Mr. Glad-
une has determined tu test the pub-
c mind on the question of granting a
■•parate parliament to Ireland. He
fiis concluded to do this by referring
F* ie question to a special commission,
j/htle this body are cngnned in examining the subject Mr. Gladstone ill-
'Hida to go on with his measures for
' io stopping of eviction in I Maud and
ir tho purchase of the real estate of
' io country fur transfer to the actual
Sera and tillers.
1 Tlie Conservatives nre not idle to-
fight.   They say that if Mr. Gladstone
'r-iposes the special commission men-
Jonod ubi-vo thoy and the National
'iberftla  will  unite  to oppose it, und
jialleiigo tho premier to declare him-
j<lf  uu the whole lino of his Irish
|f olicy.   The Tories believo thnt Mr.
' ladstone   has   bargained  to obtain
lj nine-rule fur Ireland, nnd that he will
J so all lm strategy to secure such de-
].ys in meeting the issue as he shall
Icem necessary to educate the public
Pp to the concession, and they will do
; 1 in their power to compel him to
rematurcly show his hand.

"Three Acre!' Stories.
Wo copy the following paragraphs
from Rapier's notes in tho Illnstraied
Sporting and Dramatic ifett'si—'-Ttlere
can be no doubt that the caucus-spread
legend of the throe ucres uud a cow
has actually beeu believed, and I hear
of n dodge by which n certain Radical
candidate gave color to it in his constituency. Ue scut a number of bogus
lund surveyors down, aimed with measuring chnins, poles, instrumeiiiB, nud
paraphernalia, and they busily set
about their work. Meantimo, while
the population gazed, ihe candidates
friends explained that tho lund was
being measured out for thom in case
tho Radical wus returned. If he were
not they would get nothing, and it
was, moreover, most likely that they
would have to pay the expenses of tlio
survey—a very heavy bill—iu tho form
of local rates. The highly intelligent
rustics, who arc, of course, thoroughly
competent to decide nu the domestic
and foreign policy of thu country, went
for tliu Radical like one man.
An excellent story of how appreciation of thu story of the three acre
swindle wns brought home to a certain
bucolic elector is going the rounds.
Having voted for tho Rndical he begun
lo inquire whero his now property Iny,
uud was referred to a neighboring lawyer, who, besides a knowledge of law
possessed u senso of humor. The man
made known the nature of his request.
He had one aero already at thu back of
his cottage, nud thought it would be
very convenient if three acres of nn
adjoining Held, belonging to it neighboring farmer, were udded to it; bo he
mado his application for tliese. Tho
lawyer took iu the situation, and
reached down a plan of tho estate
wliich he had in his office—tv plan
which showed the rustic's cottage.
'Let me aee,' the lawyer aaid, 'hero is
your cottage. Your land is here, 1
suppose, nnd you wnnt three acres
here?' 'Well, zur, I don't understand
drawings loiko, but its them three
acres of turnips I want just at tlio back
of my house.' 'Yos, quite ao. Thnt
must be hero,' the man of law replied,
studying the plan; 'I'll see if that can
bu arranged for you.' He left the
room, leaving the new voter blessing
tlio name of the good Mr. Chamberlain
he hnd been told about; but after n
short time tho lawyer returned. 'I'm
very sorry,' he said, 'but I'm afraid
thut can't bo done. You uru a little
lute, you see. Ouo of your neighbors
hns tnken his throe acres there, nud ho
lias included your acre in his selection.'
The rustic was aghast. 'My acre ?'
'But whnt be oi to do?' 'I'm afraid I
can't advise you. I expect all the land
bus been appropriated here, mid you'll
havo to go somewhere elso. You see,
the man has just as much right to your
land ns you have to another man's.1
The yokel was too much knocked over
to ask tho question he had intended,
as to where he should iind his cow.
Uciitl Men Doing Duty.
Poets think thero is very little in a
name—uu opinion that is not shared
by all business men, many of whom
are inclined to associate much of their
success with the popularity or euphony
of the firm's name. Where this is the
cuso it is not an uncommon thing ti
soe tho name retained, long after the
withdrawal or decease of one of the
puriners. An example of this kind is
the lirm of Storm, Hill & Co., located
on Madison and Franklin street. Early
in the your an elderly spinster who
does the soliciting for one of the W.
CM. called at tho store and asked to
see Mr, Storm.
"He's not in," was the reply.
The next week she appeared about
noon,
"Is Mr. Storm in?"
"No."
"Well, I'll cull again this afternoon
What timo do you close V
''Five o'clock."
Two hours later sho popped hur
spectacled face into tho cashier's win
dow and asked:
"Mr. Storm got buck yet I"
"No, he hasn't got back yet," wus
the non-committal response.
"When do you think I would bo
most likely to catch him?"
"Really, I couldn't say, madam,"
"Well, I'll call some other time
when I'm in tho neighborhood."
"Very well," and the man of money
bowed an adieu and went on his way
figuring.
The next visit was made the last of
the month about 10:30 o'clock in the
morning, when the tardiest merchant
is supposed to be at his desk,
"I'd like to Bee Mr. Storm, please,"
said the lady, bowing a familiar sort of
good morning to the grim cashier.
"He's not in."
"Not down yet, eh?" and without
waiting for an answer she went off to
return the next day.
"Has Mr. Storm como back yet?"
"No'in."
"May I wnit for him?"
"Certainly," and she seated herself
in a chair near thc steam coil and began to read a paper three days old.
With the knowledge of her mistake
hur impatience began; and, aftor a
wait of somo twelve minutes sho wont
back to the interlocutor and tiBked:
"Do yon expect him to-night V
"Hardly."
"Was he down this morning ?"
"No'."
"Well, when will lie bo down ?" ahe
inquired angrily.
"I don't think he'll be down at all."
"Why?"
"He's dead."
The object of all this search has
been iri hiB grave eight years, but nn
suggestion has over been made tu drop
his namo from the firm. It is too
much of a convenience to he dispensed
with. Nine-tenths of all ilie clinnta-
ble beggars and philanthropic nuisances who enter tlie store wnnt to see
Mr. Storm, Innumerable nobodies
who have a troublesome aspect uro invariably disposed of with tlm simple
statement that Mr. Storm is not in.—

A Brave Bbidk.—When tho Apaches attacked the Black Rock ranch of
William Johnson, a week ago last Sunday, only Johnson and his young bride
weru on the premises. They took
refuge in a chicken house, from which
thu tight was kept up for an hour, tlm
husband doing the shot ting and the
wifo loading the guns, Johnson was
shot through tho body und thigh, and
hnd one arm broken. When the red
devils gave up the tight and loft, Mrs.
Johnson hitched up a team, placed
her wounded husband iu the wagon,
and drove twenty miles to Fort
