Prospects of Keclproelty;
The battle of tariff and no tariff
lias been pretty well fought out in
Canada. When Sir Leonard Tilley
produced the great N. P., tie
vooistw and opponent*of-H
oat» i>to wd'ct tiffin-"!
dearly defined and understood by
those at least who have the habit of
informing themselves upon trade
questions, the two political parties went to the polls with this
issue, and the N. F. was adopted by
u deliberate national vote. Reformers, who contended for a revenue tariff (that is, a tariff just high
enough to supply the required revenue of the country), assert that
tho N. P. is a fraud and a delusion,
und that it lias failed in accomplishing tho purposo for which it was
framed. It, has certainly brought
a large revenue into the treasury, so
large that tbe government has been
continually burdened with a surplus. But it is beyond question
that the popularity of the N. P. is
growing less. When it was first
presented to the people of Canada,
tbe country was-Buffering under a
period of great financial depression.
Orope had been unsatisfactory, money
- was acaroe, and prices of produce
ruled low. - The people were open
for any scheme which promised botter times. The N. P. promised
this, and was accepted as a probable
remedy for tho evils whioh bore bo
heavily on the nation. There has
been a period of comparative prosperity. During the past five or six
years Canada- has been making substantial advancement aud accumulating wealth. Her manufacturing
industries, or at least some of thom,
have experienced the stiuiuUting
effects of a protective tariff. But
as there cannot be two hills without
a valley between, bo it seems we
cannot have prosperous periods without periods of depression intervening. The stimulus given by the
N. P. to many industries has puBhed
them forward beyond the sphere of
legitimate development Canada, at
best, has b'it a limited market, and
hostile tariffs set up a barrier against
international trade. The manufacturing boom resulted, as somo people predicted it would, iu a certain
measure of collapse. Markets became glutted. Tbe supply was
greater thau the demand, Mills began to shut down, or to run on short
time. Employees were thrown out
of work. Money markets became
tight, and financial disaster overtook
those who had ventured beyond
their depth. The remedy worked
admirably where tho disease did not
exist, A remedy for commercial
depression could scarcely receive an
honest trial where depression did
not prevail. People now begin to
suspect that the N. P., as a recipe
tor perpetual prosperity, is not what
hns been claimed fer it. Taxes are
found to be pressing upon the nation
just at a time when it feels itself unprepared to meet them. The theory
of protection has not by any means
been proved sound by the experience of the N. P., and Canadians
are beginning to look about for some
' means of relief from high taxes
while the high revenue has tailed.
At the critical moment somebody
suggests reciprocity, If reciprocity
is seoured upon a fair basis, we believe it will bring to the country a
more permanent benefit than has
come from the N. P. The United
States are our natural allies. The
people of that nation speak the
same language and cherish the same
traditions as the people of Canada.
Their laws and institutions are similar to ours, and in social customs
there is no appreciable difference.
The two countries are divided by
conventional lines which cannot separate the two peoples. But tho
United States are strong in finance
und tr -le, while we ure comparatively weak in both. It will be for
those to whose hands are committed
the responsibility of negotiating a
leeiprooity treaty to aee that our
Inferior position is not taken advantage of by the stronger power.
Looking at the,natural resources of
the two countries, one must arrive
at tho .conclusion..that both would
be vastly aaiisted in nutters ot trade
NEW WESTMINSTER, R OJ, WEDNESDAY, JULY 9, 1884.
NUMBER 2
it tbey existed under ont govern
• ft ;mi#miMlN»m->fr>-
duced in the United Sulfa which
cannot be economicdt** produced in
banada; and we have tome products
which do not exist south of tM
boundary, Betides, the Wliirel re.
sources are distributed onanuully in
both countries. Coal, wliich is one
of the necessities ol commerce and
manufacture, lies scattered over the
whole, continent Butxttere are
large areas where no coal exists.
The people ot Ontario and Quebec,
tor example, muat either carry their
coal all the <n*yfr»«ikS extreme
eastern provinces, or they must buy
it from ihe. United State* .In one
case the cost of, transportation aSSs
vastly to the price, and tluis interferes with important industries; in
the other ease a duty of from 60 to
60 cts, per ton is demanded. On
this coast the conditions are reversed.
Here Canada has the coal, and the
United States has not (at least it
has none' except ain inferior article).
British Columbia coals go to San
Francisco, and are there met by a
liity uf 75 cts. por ton. In both
cases the national revenue is augmented, but the tax lies upon, industries which are of very great importance to the country. Let both
these tariffs be wiped off, and it
wonld then be possible for every one
to purchase coal at the cheapest
point: The same conditions hold
good-, with respect to lumber, and
many other artiolea which both countries produce. We should be very
glad to see a treaty of reciprocity
between the United States and
Canada, if it is made and maintained
upon a fair and honest basis.
Visit or Ihe British Association.
During the discussion in the Dominion House of Commons upon the vote
of (25,000, to defray the expenses of
the meeting in Montreal in Auruit
next of the British Association, une
further arrangements for the reception of. members were ,made known.
The excursion to the Rooky Mountains
will, it is announced, take place oh
September 4, the member, being
taken by the New Canadian Pacifio
Lake Route, where specially constructed steamer. maHwreot connection with the railway on etch side.
The excursion wilt probably occupy
two weoks, and arrangements have
been made that member, of the party
may not be nut to greater expense
than one dollar and a half per diem
doting the trip. Ot the 125,000
granted by the Deminion parliament,
85,000 will be uscB to defray the expenses of the meeting itself, and a
fund is being raised to guarantee the
Association against loss in connection
with the publication of their proceedings. In addition to the Rocky Mountains excursion., others will be arranged
tc Ottawa, Quebec, tnd probably to
Beloail Mountain, a locality of great
geological interest. Active preparations are being made at Montreal,
Toronto, aud other places which will
bo visited, to give the members a due
reception. It haa also been arranged
by tne Associated Atlantic Cable Com-
fany that social cable message, to and
rom the delegate, tnd their frienda
shall be sent free of charge. This it
regarded as a considerable contribution toward the success of th* meeting In Montreal. \
Stopping n c>wie smapwle.
"One of the smartest things I ever
saw in my travels," said t passenger
from the West, to a newapaper reporter, "was a cowboy stopping a cattle stampede! A herd of about six or
eight hundred had got frightened at
something, and broke away poll mall
with tbeir: tails in the air and thi
bulls'at the head of the procession.
But.Mr. Oowboy didn't get excited at
all when he taw the herd »aa going
for a straight bluff, where they would
certainly tumble down into the canyon and be killed.
"You know that when a hard like
that gets to going, they can't Mop, ho
matter whether they ruth to death or
not: I Thete in tht rear orowd thou
ahead, and away they go. I wouldn't
have given a dollar t head for the
herd; but the cowboy spurred up hi.
mustang, made a little detour, came
right in front of the herd, cut acros.
their path at a right angle, and than
galloped leisurely on to the edged
that bluff; halted, and looked around
tt thtt wild inaai of. beef coming right
Matt] him. He waa cool a. a cucumber, though I expected to aee him
killed, and'I was so excited I could
not apeak. I I-
well, when the lesdert had got
within about a quarter of a mile of
him, I saw them try tu alack up,
though they could not do it very
quick. But the whole herd seemed to
want to atop, and then the cowt tnd
steer, in the rear got about whtreth.
cowboy had cut acros. their path, I
wu surprised to see them stop tnd
commence to nibble tt the grass. Then
the whole herd stopped, wheeled,
ttrsejltd back, and went to fighting
fM- a chance to' eat where the rear:
guard was.
"Vou ate, thtt cowboy had opened
a big bag of salt be had brought out
from tho ranch to give the cattle, galloped across the hard's course, and
emptied tho bag. Every critter sniffed
that line of salt, and, of courae, that
broke up the stampede. Bill I tall
you it wit a queor tight to aw thtt
man out there on the edge of'that
bluff quietly rolling a cigarette, when
it seemed aa though he'd beeu lying
under 200 tent of beef in about a
minute and t half."

Tbe Plague.
From telegrams published io another column, it will.be seen that
tho cholera epidemic is causing great
havoc and consternution in Europe.
The disease cau hardly be, conuiied
to France. Qimrautine regulations
are very strict, but cholera cannot
be shut up within such enclosures.
Should it find its way to Germany
and Britain, no one can predict
where it moy stop. Already hundreds of persons are fleeing from Iho
infected districts, and some of these,
will bo sine to carry with thein the
germs of diseuse to propagate lu
other spheres. It mny be loug before the scourge will reach this continent, but  the   utmost   vigilance
SllO'lId    lm   av9.-ot.ed   ovorywhere tn
keep out the plague. To this end it
is of great importance thnt quarantine arrangements in this province
ahould be perfected. We have late
ly bad aome experience which Bhould
not be thrown awny. The Dunlin
ion government cannot with impunity shut ita eyes lo tbe new danger which, threatens, us. There is uo
time to be lost.
iB-HgniBl Passengers.
Before leaving ship the quarantined passengers on board the str.
Mexico passed a serins of resolutions
of' which these are a few:
Resolved, that we, the passengers of
the steamship Mexico,, lament and de-
plone, tl|. utter ignorance oJ Dr.. Wm.
Kcknn, who, a. [health oBcer of Viotoria, B. ft, after finding no sickness
aboard our vessel, and ignoring the clean
Mil of health exhibited by the captain
{nm the custom house officer at'Han
Imao'sco, Cal, ordered u. to remain
ojiarau'toed *o» sixteen days—failing to
Visit u. tke entire time, barring the
second day of our arrival. Be it further.'
Resolved, that we condemn the heart-
lessA-M that permitted tons and tons of
freight to he landed, and denied us the
privilege of sending postal nutter to
anxious relations and mends.
■•.: Also, that we chargo him with gross
neglect of duty, in failing to visit onr
ship, after being repeatedly sent foi by
a quarantine officer aboard.
Ahn, in failing to vaccinate the fifteen little children aboard the ship, or
in taking any measure whatever to prevent the spread ofsthe loathsome disease which, he claimed would, develop.
Tbe circumstances in which these
persons found themselves were certainly not such as to promote good
humor, but we are Inclined to
tliiuk these resolutions were scarcely
warranted by tho facts. It may be
true that the Mexico showed a
clean bill of health from San Franoisco. At the time of leaving that
port it was not known that any of
her passengers were infected, or
that there bad been smallpox on the
Tokio, from which she took a number of Chinese. Aa soon aa the dis-
cov'i'y had been made, the fact was
telegraphed to Victoria, and we do
I not very well aee how, under the
circumstances, Dr. Jackson could
have permitted the passengers to
land. With respect to the charges
of carelessness and neglect we know
nothing. If the representations of
the passengers, are correct, it. lpoks
as if. he had failed in his duty in
this respect. Posaibjy these repre,
dentations may have been somewhat
exaggerated, however.
Another Tltue Tab|e.
From a notice published in our
advertising columns, it will be seen
that the C. P. N. Co. proposes to
make another change in the time
table of the up-river steamers. Fat-
many years these steamers have
been leaving this city every Wednesday and Saturday morning. It
is now proposed to leave on Tuesday
inatetd of Wednesday. This change
brings us back to a worse condition
than ever. The tendency of communication in a progressive country
Bhould be. towards advancement,
The step proposed is one of retro-
gieaaion. Last summer nnd the
Hummer before we had four steamers
n week between here and Yale; now
we have two ateamere, and it is pre.
posed so to divide the week that two
daya shall go to on* trip and four to
the other. The C. F. N. people affirm that tbe change is contemplated
at the suggestion of the post-office
inspector. If this he true, the in
spector is meddling with matters
which he utterly1 fails to comprehend. The mail subsidy between
this city and Yale was given not
only to geoure a regular mail service for tha lower Fraser, hut to ensure also regular and adequate transportation. Both theae objects have
been fairly accomplished by the past
/tervios; neither of them ;*wtt be at.
tained by the new scheme proposed
by the inspector. There will bo a
mail leaving thii eity on Tuesday
morning, conveying ttwi material
accumulated on Saturday and Monday, wliil*for S».urd»*'* mi.il than
will lie an accumulation of four
days' material. Instead of dividing
the week by tlie middle, aa.has been
done, it is to be divided into sections
of If aiid §, and tbe well-established
usages of trade, are to be 'disorganized, because the inspector fancies a
change! Havo the people of tlio
Fraser valley no rights in this matter'! Before venturing 'to meddle
with this matter, surely common
couitesy would have suggested to
the inspector the propriety of consulting the representative' of the
district most seiiously affected by
the. change. But ho has not done
so; neither has lie consulted tbe
board of trade, nor the people. In
the name of this city und district
we protest against the proposed
change, because it affords fewer
facilities than the arrangement now
in existence—and that is no better
than it should be.
About Prohibition.
Although no practical attempt lias
evef- been made to apply the Scott
Act to the restriction of the liquor
traffio in this province, it has been
adopted by a' sreat many eastern
counties. At tbo present time there
are nearly a dozen counties in Ontario, where arrangements have been
made to take a vote on this bill during the summer, and the contest's
going on most vigorously. In order
to 'give a fair and impartial statement as to the effects of the Scott
Act, the Toronto Globe some months
ago sent a special commissioner to
the eastern provinces. The letters
of thia commissioner havu been of
great interest, and contain tbe results of a careful and extensive personal enquiry. The Globe of the
24th ult. contains the commissioner's final letter, in which he sums
up the whole matter. He finds that
the temperance sentiment in eastern
Canada is very far in advance of
that of the west; that although
there is a good deal of drinking
done in towns und cities where the
Scott Act hus been carried, yet it is
a great deal less than before the
passage of the act; that in rural
districts the Scott Act has virtually
stopped the liquor traffic and the
drinking customs. In towns, where
drinking continues contrary to law,
it is curried on in such a way and
in such places as to make it disreputable. Of Sackville, where he
found a great deal of drinking, the
commissioner says: "Bar room drinking, the social feature of the traffic,
has been wholly suppressed) and
thereby the most potent agenoy in
(he manufacture of drunkards removed; for after all the great curse
and danger of the liquor traffic is
the social treating of the publio barroom. The places in Sackville
where liquor can be obtained are bo
utterly degraded in look, character,
and method that the young men of
the community will not visit them,
and their very existence serves more
than anything else to make drinking repulsive and to confirm the
people in their allegiance to prohibitory iegislation. In Sackville, then,
it is only a few of the- more do-
graded products of the license system who connive at the violation
of the law. In Kings, in Frederic-
ton, in Digby, in every constituency
where the interference of-thp. law,
has not disabled the Act, the same
results are the outcome of it&operar
Hon," The commissioner! further
asserts, from .statistics of trade, that
there has beet) a, great decrease in
the consumption of intoxicating
liquors wliere the Scott Act has been
adopted. "The greut bulk of the
testimony," he says, "I found agreed
in the admission that in the rural
sections drinking liad almost absolutely ceased." He gives testimony
on another point which is of considerable importance. There seems to
be an opinion, especially in this
province, that a hotel cannot be kept
without tbe adjunct of a bar. The
Globe commissioner says: "The character of the hotel accommodation
in these provinces has not heen degraded by the operation of the Scott
Aot, and in those Nova Scotian
counties in which no licenses have
been issued for years, ns good and
aa cheap public accommodation' is
provided as will be found in any
section of Ontario. The prosperity
of the towns has not been adversely'
affected. Real estate lias not de >
creased in value and there is no contention that the burden of taxation'
has been made heavier by tbe loss
of license revenue." It is not many
days since one of tlie saloon keepers in this oity made an attempt to
persuade the public that hia business was one of the greatest helps
to general trade. All enquiry into
the practical working of the prohibition movement is against this
absurd theory. It is advanced by
nelsons whose."craft is ih danger,"
and who care very little- for the
moral or material advancement of
the nation.

Langley, July fi.—The public picnic announced some time ago u intended to be given' by tho people of
Langley as Dominion Day celebration,
but whioh on. account of unavoidable
eireumatancea had to he put off until
tbe fourth of the month, was held here
yesterday on Langley Prsu'rio, and wot
really a grand nnd most enjoyable affair. It had been widely known that
in response to invitations the hon. the
Provinoial Secretary and the representatives of the district aud oity of
New Westminster had signified their
Intention to bo present, and the knowledge of thit fact wu no doubt the mag-,
net that attracted sd large a gathering
of people to the picnic. Every settlement iu the district from Popcum to
the Gulf wss represented/ thore being
quite a number even from Yale, and
except those disabled, by sioknsu,
every' man, woman and' child within
the municipality itself was present.
At least from 600 to 600 people wore
in attendance, a very large proportion
of whom wero ladies. Ample and liberal provisions had been made for the
entertainment and amusement of- the
general public, and every requisite and
suitable preparation ana provision for
the becoming reception and entertainment of tbe diitinguiehedvii'tors. In
thia respect the committeo of management manifested j -■

taste and foresight. The programme
framed for the day's' festivities included reception of the Hon. the Provincial
Secretary and accompanying representatives at the steamboat landing;
procession in conveyances theuce to
the pio-rio ground, distanced about 3
miles; singing of the national anthem
by the children of Langloy Prairie
school; presentation of an address of
welcome to she Provincial Secretary
and twe renreeentatives, by th. Langley municipal council; luncheon and
dancing (a spacious platform having
been erected for the purpose in the
shade ot the forest, and. an excellent
string band provided); horse racing,
athlectic contests, and various other
sports and out door amusements. The
weathor wu simply superb, fresh,
bright and sunshiny, but clear and
cool all day. About 11 o'clock the
steamer Adelaide, chartered for tho
occuion, arrived at the landing from
New Westminster with a large number
of picnickers, and having on board the
Hon. Jno. Robson, Provincial Secretary, snd M. P. P. for the District of
New Westminster; bis colleague in the
representation of tho district, James
Orr, Esq., M.P.P.; and James Cunningham, Esq., M.P.P., for the Oity
of New Westminster. A oommittee of
reception composed of a few of tlio
most prominent residents of, the municipality immediately boarded the vessel and escorted these gentlemen to
conveyances a string of whicli was waiting in readiness to.convey the picnickers that arrived by the steamer to
the pio-nio ground. The Provinoial
Secretary, with Mr. Cunningham, M.
P.P., and accompanied by members of
the reception oommittee and a,fow
other gentlemen, occupied .the first
conveyance. In the aecond conveyance

Langley, Jnly 4th, 1881
MR.   ORB
was the first to reply a the address.
In a few happy and < xtremely well
chosen words he thawed the reeve,
the members of the municipal council,
and the people of Langley, for the kind
invitation to their pic*ijic and the address just read. He nid it afforded
him great happiness aid the highest
pleasure to be afforded this opportunity of meeting and iiinglirtg in a
Bocial way with ao mapy of his constituents and especially with so largo
and important a section if them as the
people of the municipality of Langley.-
Since tbis was an ocoasloi of social intercourse and enjoyment he felt it
wonld be very improper for him to in-
dulgo in a long speech nnd he had
therefore made up his mind - before
coming here to refer as little as possible
to politics. He would however take
occasion to say that ho felt very great
dissatisfaction at the non-f ulfilmeut of
their obligations by the Dominion
Government under tho Settlement Bill.
Ho referred particularly to their failure
so far to carry out their promise made
not long ago to have aAorder made in
council regulating the tenure of the
publio lands. This was a great and
crying grievance and he hoped the
provinoial government would put forth
every effort to bring the Dominion
government to time. He very much
disapproved of the recent action of tha
J provincial government in reserving
rom sale the publio land west of the
Port Moody road. He strongly deprecated any restriction whatever on
the sale of the public lands. After a
few complimentary words to the ladies,
Mr. Orr concluded his speech by saying that. the government might always
count upon, nil hearty support in (tarrying nny measures they might adopt
tending to advance the interests of the
Distict of New Westminster.
THB HON.  PROVINCIAL SECRETARY
next replied to the address.. On rising to apeak h« waa received with loud
and loug-oontinued applause. He expressed the gratification he felt at meeting with such a reoeptioii at the hands
of so lnrge a number of his constituents. Next to tho approval of one's
Own conscience, sueh words of welcome and commendation constitute tho
highest, reward of the patriotio politician, proving aa tbey did that his
services were appreciated. In looking
round upon the vast audience he could
not but be delighted with the evidences he saw of the rapid progress of
settlement in that part of thamjfaifi-
cent district it waa hie honor and
pride to represent in the provincial
parliament; for, although two years
ago he was familiar with almost every
settler, now every other face was new
to him. He had reason to believe
that., folly fifty per cent, had been
added to the settled agricultural population of the district during the eighteen months the present government
had beeu in office; and he waa glad
to know that, in the words of the address, those who have conn* aro ohiefly
a most desirable class of settlers. The
government of which he was a mem*
Ber was keenly alive to the importance of possessing a. prosperous and
contented yeomanry, and the settlers
might rely upon everything being
done tbat could be done, with tbe
limited revenue at their disposal, towards, supplying
ROADS AND SCHOOLS,
without which prosperity or content*
ment was impossible. Referring to
the gross misrepresentation and scurrilous abuso indulged in by the opposition press of the province, he -remarked that while there oould be no
objection to legitimate opposition and
fair criticism, it was neither honorable
nor patriotio for publio journalists to
descend to the grossest misrepresentation and abuse with the object of embarrassing the government. Such a
course was only calculated to drag politics down into the dirt, instead of elevating them, as should be the aim of
every good citizen of the country. No
one could condemn a proper desire for
office and power. Such aspirations
were laudable; but when despicable
means were resorted to, it only warned
the people of the unfitness of those
using them. The hon. gentleman proceeded tu review the promises mado
at the general election, and the policy
of the government brought into ox-
istenco by that election.
THE SETTLEMENT BILL
was n fair and honorable compromise
between the province and the Dominion. Columbia might have continued
to insist upon the full measure of what
she had been taught to claim as her
duo; but, being the weaker against tho

the terms'of the settlement bill; and
if that measure had not resulted in al!
the reasonably anticipated good to the
province,-it waa because of unexpected
dolay on the part of tho Dominion
government in giving effect to somo of
its important provisions; but it wns
obviously unfair to hlante the provincial government for that. Ho admitted, and he regretted to have to do an,
that unjustifiable delay 'had occurred
in placing (he railway Imida properly
in the market and in cortiuiemtiu-- dock
construction at Esquimau; but he cuuld
assure the [people tlmt the government
of whieh he was a member had not, by
silence or inaction, consented to thnt
delay* .On th* contrary. the Dominion
government had beon importuned to
fulfil its obligations in thee* as well as
in other respects, and it would be
found that no effort on the part of tho
tirovinoinl government had been spared
n Order to souure a faithful and satisfactory carrying out of tlie provisions
of the settlement bill, fle was glad to
be able to state that tlm latent **s
from Ottawa justified the belief that
NO riHTHBR UNNRCE8HARY DELAY
.mi the part of tlie Dominion govern-
anent was likely to occur in fulfilling
their part of the terms of settlement.
It had been ohargod that the province
liaii given everything and received
Nothing under tlmt measure. Now,
what did the provinco give? Three a:id
A half million acres of land in the
Peaco river country, lying oast of tho
Rocky Mountains. But the province
did not surrender its territorial eover*
eignty over these acres. They remain
as much aa ever an integral part of
British Columbia; they are still ours
the same as any other lands in the
province for all purposes of taxation,
revenue, und legislation. The only
valuable consideration the province
surrenders with respect to these lands
is the amount that shall be recoived
as the net profit arising from the sale,
after defraying the expense of surveying aud administering them—rather a
problematical advantage. But, as a
set-off oven to that, these lands have
been placed in hands able and likely
to peoplo and make them revenue-
producing to thia province probably a
quarter of a century earlier than would
be the case were they to wait till the
provincial government could successfully administer them; so that it may
fairly be said that the province parted
with .no valuable consideration in respect of these distant arid inaccessible
acres.   But we gave away
THE GRAVING DOCK.
Yea, and received back every dollar
improperly squandered upon it, and
secured the. completion and operating
of it hy the Dominion government
without involving any charge upon the
provincial revenue. In transferring
the dock on these terms, Columbia was
the gainer, certainly in no senae tbo
loser; and it was by this transaction,
this master-stroke, that the provincial
government have been enabled to expend so much more than their predecessors did upon uecessary and reproductive public works amongst you.
The opponents of the government have
a great deal to ssy about what the
province gives Canada nnder the settlement bill, although it has just been
shown that we really gave little or
nothing, but they are silent ahout
what we receive, or has been
CONCEDED BY CANADA
under that measure. Let us glance
for a moment at thia feature of the
bargain. Take the railway lands
alone. Canada has within the railway
belt on this side of the Rooky Mountains about 11,600,000 acres, and there
is good ground for asserting that it was
in contemplation to exact an average
price of $5 an aero for these lands-
there having -been no restriction as to
prifie and ino conditions as .to settlement imposed with respeot .to these
landB. But in* making a aattlement
with Canada the provincial government
succeeded -in. securing this enormous
and most valuable concession, that
actual settlers on these lands shall only
be required to ray one dollar an acre!
Taking the! 11 million acres, this represents a gain to the province of $44,-
000,000., To bring it nearer home,
one million harm of these lands are
estimated to lie on tbe lower Fruer,
and thus the settlers on these lands
will only have to pay one million dollars into the Dominion treasury instead
of five millions. Ia it nothing to have
saved to the settlers of the lower
Fraser four millions? But you1 are
impatient to go to your sports, and I
only detain you to again thank you
for this
|  KIND WELCOME
and to express the hope that you may
have similar gatherings in future years
at which your representatives may
meet you. to receive your expressions
of commendation or censure, according
aa their course may be pleauiu
otherwise; and I sincerely hope {hat
we shall be spared to meet ori" many
future occasions under as happy circumstances aa we meet to-day. It is
right I should state that the premier
waa anxious to be bare to-day; but
owing to the absence of the attorney-
f;eneral it waa not possible for bim to
save. I am sorry he could not have
been here in order to receive tho favorable impression respecting our district this gathering is sure to make.
After the applause that followed the
conclusion of the" hon. gentleman's
speech had subsided
SCR. CUNNINGHAM
rose to reply to the address. He spoke
as follows:—Mr. Reeve, gentlemen of
the municipal council of Langley, and
ladies and gentlemen. ■ Since you have
so kindly associated my name both in
the invitation, to vour pic-nio and in
your address of welcome with my two
honorable friends here, I return you
my thanks. I nm proud to meet here
to-day so many of the electors of the
district of New Westminster. I am,
of course, not a representative of the
district, but I am of the oity of New
Westminster (a voice, "and the city is
in the district"). Yes the city is in
tho district, ana I represent the city,
(a laugh). Well, I am only a representative of two months. At the last
election the people of T-Tew Westminster thought I was a proper person to
repiesent them and they elected me.
It is truo I was onlv elected by a
scratch (laughter), but I think it was a
large scratch. I am not going to detain you with a speech. I am not a
politician. I don't mako my living by
politics and I don't intend to. I approve of all the acts of the presont
government. I believe they are pur*
suing
A WISE POLICY
and I will give them Xm hearty support. With regard to my honorablo
friend the Provincial Socivti-ry, whom
they oall "Honest John" (l»ud laugh-
ter)--well, thoy will myself "Truthful
Jnmes" {uproarious laugltior), mid in
both cases possibly thu t-piiheta msy
jh'nvi) bean appropriately; applied (iv-
howed laughter)--~r have watched liis
political conduct with-"criiiinyau^ 1
am hnppy in being ttblo to nay t!,nt I
see no other mark in his political life
hut honesty. I believe ho in putting
forth his best ell-ms as a lending member of the present government for tho
best interests'and welfare of the whole
country, and while I cau see nothing
in all his conduct but what I heartily
approve as being for the bost interests
of the country, and while ho continues
to dtt as he haa done, I will follow in
hia foutateps and give him my hearty
support. 1 believe the interests of tbe
city of New Westminster are to a certain extent the interests of the diatrlct,
and we are not going to be idle in the
city of New Westminster. I expect
ways and means will be devised to
build tho New Westminster and Port
Moody Railway within the next six
monthe> But this is a festive occasion,
and I shall uot detain you any longer,
ns I'see some young men impatient for
amusement. This ended the speech-
making, and after giving threo cheers
for the ''representatives" luncheon was
noxt in order; nnd after full justice had
lieeh done to that important part of
the programme the
HORSE RACING AND SPORTS
commenced, also dancing, which was
kept up with great spirit during the
remander of the afternoon. The days'
festivities wound up with an amusing
tout race of 100 yards for a purse of
money between four of the oldest and
most decrepid men in Langley. This
was a most amusing exhibition and
caused convulsions of merrimont. Four
patriarchs entered for the race.   Mr.
George Yorkson won handsomely, and
poor old Hr. James Mackie waa last.
At 6 o'clook the pic-nic broke up and
just as the Provincial Secretary took
his seat in the conveyance and waa
about starting to leave the ground the
people massed round the vehicle and
J ave three ringing cheers fur the Hon.
uo. Robson. The Provincial Secretary in return asked three cheers and
a tiger for the generous people of
Langley for their hospitality. A large
crowd followed the "representatives"
to the steamboat landing and as they
went on board three ringing cheers
were given for each.      J. 0. McD.

Chicago, July 1.—Allen pinkerton,
the famous detective, died at 3:10 this
afternoon. He had been gradually sinking from the effects of malarial fever contracted some weeks ago while on a visit

hope late last night. The deceased was
unconscious when he expired. He was
born in 1819, in Glasgow, Scotland,
where his father was a sergeant of police.
-He was apprenticed to a cooper. At 22
years of age he attained prominence in
the Charter Isle' agitation, the connection with whioh forced him to leave
Great Britain. In Dundee, Illinois,
Pinkerton established a paying cooperage business, and later incidentally engaged as an -amateur detective. His
work proved a success, and later determined his future career. The story of
his establishment of the Pinkerton detective agency, his active assistance to
the abolition movement, the prominent
part he took in tbe secret service during
Lincoln's administration, aa well aa
his hair breadth escapes and wonderful

On a pleasant, balmy afternoon, in
the month of Juno, and the year of
grace 1630, old Job Henley, mine host
of the "Brown Bear Inn," aat in the
shade of a wide-spreading and venerable sycomore, that grew in front of
his tavern, in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
He sat there ]ust as ho had done
hundreds of times beforo, poring over
the pages of a sort of ledger, in which
were written many BCoreB that, from
time to time, had been run up by hia
drouthy customers. But, few of these
scores would have been intelligible,
even to experts in chirography, and
when to the original entries were added
credits on tho margins or across the
face of the accounts or marginal notes
or addenda to others, and to still
others, moral or religious reflections
on the part of the old man, an attempt
to decipher them would have proved
an almost hopeless task. Only one
man could read those entries without
difficulty, and that man was the writer
of thero, Job Henley, inn keoper
"Brown Bear Tavern," Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. (That is the way
Job always gave his name, business,
and address to the canvassers for the
Philadelphia Oity Directory.
Job was of medium stature, plethoric of habit, and at most times rubicund of visage; but when moved by
great grief or anger, his face assumed
(he hue of faded mahogany, in which
drab  tints had a place.
yellowish         .
and the broad pimples of deep purple,
brought thero by a too generous diet,
gave to it the appearance of of an artist's palette, with the colon set tor
work. But the mouth went far towards redeeming the otherwise unhandsome character of the face. The
lipa, when in repose, were scarcely
closed, and were curved iu lines that
indicated a natural kindness of heart,
which his calling had entirely extin-
Juished. The great difficulty that
ob's nature had to contend with was
that he lived in days when even the
church recognized the business of rum-
selling as respectable, and ministers,
and deacons, and members would
drink together, aud sometimes get
drunk together. A time when it was
considered a charity for the keeper of
a tavern or ale house, as they were
then called, to give back a trifle to his
victim's family. Now it ia considered,
by most honest persons, dishonest to
sell intoxicants, and rumselling is
looked on only aa a permission allowed
* by a bad law. which time and a more
intelligent and humanly educated age
or generation will remove from the
statute books of all civilized countries.
Job Henley's natural disposition
may be better understood by his entries of accounts and remarks in regard to them than by anything wo can
write. It may be supposed that aome
of these entries were marked "paid,"
somo "good," others "doubtful," some
"midling," and some "bad," but of
the marginal notes, and moral and
religious reflections we can suppose
nothing, but must depend for our information entirely on tho undertone
readings or musings of Job. as he sits,
with his finger guiding his eye along
the crooked linea, an occasional smile
lighting up his face, or a scowl deepening the shadows, and drawing sharper
the furrows over tho oyes and the lines
of the mouth, but more frequently
than either, a gloomy or pitying expression playing upon his aged features, at times showing that more than
ordinary gloomy and painful memories
were at work, and passing before life's
mirror, were casting their dark but
truthful shadows on his now downward path towards tho goal of hia existence.
But Job Henley was au inn-keeper
of the olden-time clasa, who had acquired titles to houses and lands, and
kept a solid bank account, and, at the
date of our story, had been engaged in
the business Bome forty years of his
life. He had begun as landlord of the
"Brown Bear Tavern" when under
thirty years of age, and had outlived
most of thoso who had been his customers both in the'earlier and later
daya of his business career. A few of
hia 'patrons lie had aeon riae to -wealth
and paste of honor in the State or
National service, and die honored and
respected. Others had lived and died
in middling circumstances, beloved
and their deaths regretted by those
who knew them, But the great majority Job knew had died iii poverty
and want, brought about by strong
drink, some in poor houses and some
in prisons. Two of his early patrons
one of them the sou of an old friend
and a namesake of Job's, had been ex-
euted, the first for mail robbery and
the other for murder,—crimes which
each acknowledged on the gallows,
wero the direct results of rum drink*
ing.
To say that all these men, whose
lives ended thus unfortunately, had
contracted their drinking habits at the
"Brown Bear," or that all had become
confirmed In their habits there, would
be to say what was untrue. But Job
Henley knew that many of them had,
nnd he also knew that if he was nut
alone responsible for thcr sad endings,
the businoas of rum selling at large
waa, and that he had been a large recipient of its profits. He knew too
that the account book that he held in
his hnnd was more or less a record of
their lives, and nn evidence against
Ihe honesty and morality of rumselling, from hia first acquaintance with
them, until the pour house, the prison,
or a pauper's grave ended thoir foolish
careers.
But Job had not kept,a record alone
of the lives thus wasted and ruined.
Those few of his customers who had
quit their drinking habits, or who had
tne strength of mind to restrain or
curb thoir appetites, and who, by
thrift or industry, had become wealthy,
or had risen tu positions of honor, also
had a place in his personal histories,
whioh ,wore read and re-read by Job
Whenever he felt come upon him what
he termed his "thinking fits."
It ia in une of these thinking*fits
tliat we have introduced him to the
reader. He has just been wondering
what has become uf Will Sweetwater,
! tflf fm tiniid young man Who, on
' tiling his first drink at the bar of the
"Brown Bear" was so very much ex
'atfri ihat he oould scarce steady the
glass to his lips. He knew that in time
Will got so bravely over bis timid
ways that he could drink a number of
Ma or'brandy ur whiskey of
ity. without blushing, and could
rfi to ■■• wyateriiig song, do consider-
Ha fo tha Way of profanity, and at
, time, so rapid had beon his pro-
.|fcid1dj<ut(ft a dozen i
had a' quarrel witl
d dm uk a dozen glass
ftr, had a quarrel with one
MMl and knocked down another for
refusing to join in the quarrol with the
fin* oot, all In one evening.    *
Job re
grettad much that Will had so far Inst
the mitlomanly  timita of character
j^^^ff j i^^w i ¥■
from mot
Sueuters. But said the old man', "It
11 comes from drinking too much,
which no young man had ought to
do."
A marginal note which Job read
aloud told that Will Sweetwater had
been nearly killed in a street brawl
while intoxicated. "Pity," mused
Job, "ho hadn't ought to drink so
much, specially when he had ' such a
nice mother, and sho a widow with no
other children. Pity the Lord
wouldn't turn hia heart/'
"Now," continued Job, running his
finger down  the page; before  him,
"there Ib Senator Johnson, him that
used to treat all the fellows that came
in.   He knowed better than to make
a beast of himself, and though he quit
drinking himself as soon as tho election was over and told people he felt
better for it, I feel proud that ho was
once my guest.   I had only one thing
against hiin, and that was, he never
move thau tasted Iub drink, juat as if
I sold bad liquor.   Well, ho is rich
now, and they do say he's going to get
up one of them new sucieties to keop
men from drinking anything but wino
or beer.   It won't do any good, not if
it was a law, for any mnn cau get aa
drunk  un ale or wine as he can un
whiskey or brandy.    After a while 1
shouldn't wonder if thoy would want
to stop all kinds uf strong drinks, and
try to stop people selling it.      I do
wish men would learn to keep sober.
There's Jim Hullister," Baid Job, as
he turned to the next page, "poor
Jim! if he hadn't touk bu much that
night we had thu singing party, he'd
a been alive to-day.   Poor Jim! poor
Jim!  I'll never forget how frightful
and ghastly his face, looked when we
found  him the next morning frozen,
stiff on  the ground.     Billy Starkweather," said Job, "was a good and
sensible young mau, and know juat
when he had enough.   He's rich now,
and if he don't drink any  moro, I
guess the liquor never hurt bim when
he did drink.      Pity some  people
wouldn't follow his example.   Here's
Job Henley Carman,  him that was
named after me; well, if men will get
drunk and murder their fellow-beings,
they must take tho consequences.   I
was sorry for hiB father, and when ho
died, as they said of grief, and his
mother was sent to the lunatic asylum, I felt as if I would never allow
another man to take a drink nt my
bar when he had enough already."
Job, like many others of his calling,
did not consider that all the harm came
from selling to men when sober, in
other words, makiiig them drunk. Job
went on soliloquizing and moralizing
from line to line and from page to
page, sometimes smiling, often frowning, and alwaya (we say always because
these ledger perusals of Job's were of
frequent occurence) passing with a
scuwl two pages which he had pinned
together, apparently that he might not
accidently look upon their record.
This time, by aome means, they had
become separated, and Job had opened
them; as he did bo his face reddened
with anger, and hia eyes glared on the
writing* as if aome mortal foe stood
there, ready to deprive him of life.
At last his voice rising above his usual
undertone, he said, "It's a lie, a mean
and cursed lie. I tried tu save him.
Didn't I advise him to drink less; und
didn't I tell him nut to mix his liquor:
and didn't I take him home myself
often, and didn't I love my poor girl
aa much as any father cuuld, aud better
than nny one else; and wouldn't I have
died to save her? It's a mean, cursed
He, I say. It was all his own fault, he
would drink too muoh; and when he
stole that money from his employer,
and was sent to prison to wait for his
trial, didn't I offer to gu his bail 7 Of
course I did. And when he tuok that
poison and killed himself, und iny poor
girl died because he died, didn't I offer
to pay utl expenses nnd bury them together, and they was too mean to lot
me?" Job could utter no more but he
still glared on the writing beforo him.
It was not in his own hand, but had
been written there by somo one unknown to him, and was .su bold and
plain, that the words could be read as
easily ns print. It was as follows;
"Job Henley, yuu have ruined the
character of Charles Morten, nud indirectly murdered him aud your daughter Mary."
Job closed tho book, bowed his head,
and tried to cunaole himself with the
uid plea, that if he did not sell strong
drink, others would, and he had always
advised the young men specially "nut
to drink too much," and not to drink
mixed liquors, for thu Bible itself wns
against that. He got up from his sent
and was going into the house, when a
lady stepped to the door and politely
handed him a tract.
Now, Job had always believed in
supporting tho churches, was a pew-
holder in the Rev. Dr. Whine's church,
and had contributed to sume extent to
the funds of tho Bible and Missionary
societies; and ou one occasion when
Dr. Whine was animadverting on the
dissolute career and downward course
of one of the Brown Bear customers,
whose wife and children needed bread,
and wore in rags, he said, Job generously gave two dollar towards their
relief; and Dr. Whine silently blessed
the act, and quaffing a glass of Job's
bost Madttria as he left tho "Brown
Bear," told Job that such acts of charity ennobled men. Neither tho Rev.
Doctor nur Jub Henley thought of the
hundred's of dollars that the husband
and father uf that family had spent at
the ''Brown Benr." Jos wns satisfied
with the Domino and proud of his own
charity, and when tho lady placed this
tract in hia hand, he voluntarily promised to road it, without even looking
at the title. As the lady loft him the
dreadful words in his ledger and tho
thought of two young people dying in
the flush of youth, wns atill rutiniiij
in his mind, and this question force'
itself upon his thoughts, "Whose fault
was it?'' and simultaneously with the
thought, raising the tract before his
eyes, ho rend the title, "Thou art the
Man." His face became purplo with
rage, and then a pallor (if we can su
call the appearance of tho faco, as we
have before described it) overspread
htB featured, his head was bowed, and
he fell rather than seated himself in
tho chair nearest to, where he stood,
and remained in deep thought until
aroused by the voico of his nnw only
daughter calling him to tea.
The reader hus, no doubt, by this
time formed some kind of an opinion
of Job Henley's (raits of character,
both natural, and those formed hy his
calling, at Landlord of the "Brown
Bear,'1 and aa he lived nt a period
when the great majority of people
drunkenness as the fault of tin
