true, aa4 Jt'" * IwneGoent oondition
beside*'*' l'I« -'tails' ntoneyi'or its
equivalent* labor," to acquire land
in a couittry where improvements
havo been made. If it could be obtained without money or work it
would' be worthless. But in this
country all people who have money
in their, pockets, or a sufficient number of days' work in: their muscles
or brains, can obtain land and hold
it against all combined powers of
idleness and anarchism. That
would be a mighty poor country to
live in where the land is free to
every squatter without money or
Soft. J»ai?-?
An ImpendlriK Collapse.
The riitaijcial difficulties of tho
American protectionists are increasing rapjdb/tiand theyaro proposing
all manner of impossible schemes to
avert what would be their ruin as a
party—tke breath of reform upon
the Merit!.tariff. The latest news
is that 'the' wbrkingmeh' wre-tr) bo
enlisted throughout the Union into
tariff clubs to keep the Chinese wall
und their own servitude intact. Bat
no srray, can resist the inarch and
final vfctoty of economic law. At
present the United States is paying
off its debt at such a rate that in
1887 the last dollar of indebtedness
due until 1891 will be paid. By
that lima, if the taxation is not reduced, a .urplus of four hundred
millions will be piled up (n the
treasury,'and this will, in 1891, be
a full hundred and fifty millions of
dollars more thaii the amount of
. the bonds that fall due in that year.
If the government permits all this
money to pile up in the treasury, it
will seriously affect the circulation,
And in timo all money in the country left by the railway monopolies
will belong to the govemment.
There are only two remedies for this
state of affairs: to increase the ex
penditure or reduce the taxation.
The project of a certain senator
that tht government lend its surplus
tothe men who hold its bonds, and
by this means pay the bonds before
they becooie due, may be left out of
the question, for the simple reason
that the bondholders would Uot take
the loan as the bonds areata pre
miuin. No wise man can advocate
the, increase of the tremendous ex-
IMjinSturepf Ae United States. It
would; doibtleis, be easy enough to
throw a hundred millions of dollars
a year away in big guns, rivers and
coast fortifications, but the people
ant; about ; sick of "boodlert'' and
they will not have it done. To reduce the taxation either the Morill
tariff must be interfered with, or
the excise duties on whiskey and
tobacco must be abolished. The
protectionists are quite willing to
sanction tho latter, alternative, but
the common sense of the people rer
volts against abolishing the taxation
upon "uch mischievous luxuries us
liquor and tobacco, while fuel, clothing, food, and tools are taxed. The
only course consistent with common
tense is to reduce the customs duties,
but this the protectionists are determined to prevent. Mr, powder-
ly, in announcing himself, a protectionist a short time ago, said that
the people were not ripe, for, a fiscal
change, and that until they were he
would continue to be a proteotijn-
ist; but if the people are not ready
for the change the country evidently
needs it sadly, . The moment the
tariff breaks there will set in a
notable increase of commerce which
will countervail any temporary and
local disaster to industries whioh
cannot live without taxing the people for,theit;t|iDport. i The, defenders of that tariff know well lhat
they must keep it whole, As soon
as any part of the structure breaks
it .ajill all tumble down by the run,
and the United States will airmen
spring to a first-class position ou the
tea. The battle of the American
free traders is not only the. battle
ofthe American but of the Canadian people. The cry qf ."Canada
for the Canadians" With protection
as its object, meant • in faot "make
Canada like the United States."
The chief Btrength of tke Canadian
protectionist is in the feeling of de.
pondence upon the United States,
whioh Canadian! allow to govern
them in many things. — Montreal

Is It War?
The news from Europe continues
to wear a very belligerent aspect.
Russia seems determined to settle
the Bulgarian matter according to
hor own plans, and it is doubtful if
the other powers will stand in her
way at the risk of precipitating a
general conflict. If it be true, ns
stated, that the czar is on tlie verge
of insanity, the best thing that
could be done for the peace of Europe might be to hand liim over to
the bomb-throwers, for it is better
that one man should perish than that
the whole of Europe should be plunged into a conflict thc end of which
no one can even guess. If reliance
can be placed in the despatches
which we publish to-dny, Germany
has allowed her fear of France to
outweigh her sense of justice and
the consideration of her future in-
trests, and ha"s yielded to -Russian
pressure. It is not likely Great
Britain will take active steps to
oppose Russia in Bulgaria unless she
has the active cooperation of Germany and Austria at least; for
although any Russian advance iu
the direction, of Constantinople may
ultimately threaten British interests in the east, at present Austria
and Germany are more immediately
concerned than Britain. There
may be more in Lord Randolph
Churchill's resignation from the
cabinet than appears on the surface
or has been made known. The
information in tho hands of the
cabinet is doubtless very much more
complete than that in possession of
the public, and subsequent events
may disclose the serious'nature of
the disagreement which now threatens, utterly* to, defeat, the government.'  j
The Ontario Elections.
After a very bitterly-contested
election Mr. Mowat's government
has been sustained iu Ontario by a
la'rgely-increase'd majbrity. Judging from reports received, we were
of opinion that the government
would be sustained, but we did not
look for so large a majority. The
principal accusation brought against
Mr. Mowat and his government
was' that they were under the influence of .the Roman Catholic bishops, and had permitted Catholic influenco to interfere with the public
schools. We ha ve had no sympathy
with . this accusation because it
seemed to us groundless, und we are
glad, thereforo, that the good sense
of the people of Ontario has not
been imposed upon by it. Mr.
Mowat is, undoubtedly, one ofthe
best premiers Ontario ever had.
His'- private' and public character
have been remarkably clean, and ns
a Christian statesman he enjoys to
a very jjarged'egree the confidence of
the country. It would be a public
misfortune if, under our system of
popular govemment, such a mail
could: be deposed from office Upon a
groundless party cry. It is not
definitely known what influence
this result will have on the Dominion elections, but there will probably be, no elections now untilnext
Summer"or full, Sir John and several prominent members of his
cabinet stumped Ontario in the hope
of defeating Mr. Mowat, nnd the
signal failure of their efforts must
lead to; the^conclusion that the Conservative party need not reckon
with any certainty upon carrying
Ontario for the federal parliament
This will lie most disappointing to
the Conservative party, for it up-
sels their calculations and makes it
very doubtful whether the party
will be able to rotnin office. In the
maritime provinces there seems no
prospect of a Conservative- majority) in Quebec-if there is any majority, at nil, it is certain to be small;
in Manitoba and British Columbia
there will bo-a-Conservative majority,, but it. must be small because
there is a smaU'representation from
tliese two provinces, In the event
of' 'any' "considerable Reform' majority in' I '•htafio, therefore, the government of Sir John must go down.
A Good Joke.—Some time ago an
EiigUsli aoitJeiilan, found a large turnip
ia1i»™|n of the shape of a man's
head, aim with the resemblance of tbo
features of a man. Struck with curiosity, liB ? had . eaat made of it, and
aenv*h»"*uit to a phrenologist, stating
that it was taken from the head of a
celebrated professor, and requested an
opinion thereon. After examining, it
was >, reported that it denoted ii man
with, acute mind. and deep research,
that he liad the organ of quick perception, arid, .also J of perseverance,
with another that indicated credulity.
Tho opinion wi j transmitted to the
lienor ,of the cast, with a letter requesting as- a particular favor that he
vyiflfl''send, them the head.. To thia
lm politely replied that he would willingly ; do so'but, he was prevented, as
lie and hi» family had eaten it the day
before withtheirmutton at dinner.

Incenviakism in Nicola.—A letter
from Nicola, dated 23d December,
states that on the day previous a great
sensation was caused on account of the
ttnro of Marks, Rutledge & Co. being
deliberately set on fire at sn early hour
before daylight. Had it not been for
Mr. Clark,, wbo was up particularly
early, to take Mr. Howse to Spence's
Bridge, on hia way to the east, there
is niit the slightest doubt that tho
whole-business as well as the dwelling
houses would have been conaumed,and
that Mr. and Mrs. Rutledge and the
clerk would havo perished in the
flames, as they were sound asleep
wheri the alarm was given. Tho
whole community feel very much for
Mr. and Mrs. Rutledge, who'now feel
very insecure. Mr. Clark's shouts
soon had the neighbors at the scene,
who found Mr. Rutledge in a semi-
nude abate and almost exhausted in
his efforts to extinguish the dames,
'which ho successfully accomplished
with the aid of his clerk.—Colonial.

Ontario Elections.
TKE MOWAT GOVERNMENT VICTORIOUS.
Toronto. Deo, 20.—The general election for the Prtvlrice bf Ontario took
place yesterday and rea.ilted in a victory
for the Mowat administration. In the
late Assembly the Government had a
working majority of from 15 t.) 17. So
far as heard from yesterday's voting has
increased the majority of the Liberal
party very largely.
Tliere are still seven constituencius to
hear from, four of which it is certain will
return Liberals?..
Tho record so far stuuda:
Liberals  .03
Conservatives 20
Labor Candidate  I
, 83
In tho new House there will he 00
me.abers. Eighty-three have beeu hoard
from, which with the. seven yot to report makes the fnll compliment of ninety
members. There is remarkable excitement oil oyer the province over the re
suit. The Liberals are most cnthuelastic
in their demonstrations,, while tlie Conservatives are very much crestfallen. It
ia generally conceded that the verdict
rendered by Ontario yesterday presages
the defeat of Sir John Macdonald's
government at the appvoaching election.
Nicola School.
'The Christmas examination of thc Lower Nieola public school took place on the
16th inst. The large tuvn out of parents
■bowed they take a lively interest in the
education of their children. Tho school
house was tastefully decorated with over-
gveens. The teacher, MissJiuueiaon, do-
&ervea greaii credit for tho manner in
winch Bhe has conducted this school
during tho lost six months, she evidently
being devoted to the work, no trouble
seeming too great tor her to undci'tako
for the wrnefit of her pupils. Trustees
and pi* vents expressed themselves ou-
tirely satisfied with the progress of tho
scholars. On all brauches examined the
scholars acquitted themselves creditably
but especially iu Arithmetic,
The Christmas examination of' thu
Nieola lake ^public sohool was held on
Friday, the 17t'.i inst., and was attended
by a large number of the residents of that
place, flie exercises opened at H) a.m.
aud continued to 12:30 p.m. The order
of fto school wus excellent cud theschol-
(*<■■> upon being oxam not), clciHy showed
they fully understood tlie studies they
Were pu'suing.
The progress of this school during the
past six months has heen very marked,
and reflects great credit on the teacher,
MtfcS Douglas. Tho Nicola Lake sohool
is greatly favored in having such a teacher as Min Douglass and would do well to
retain her.
Public School YaU\
The examination of the pupils attending thia school took place on Thursday
last and was woll attended by visitors,
parents and scholars. Mr. W. T. Kinney, the efficient instructor, put the
children through a strict examination in
various branches, many of whom showed
thut talent was not wauti.tg, if properly
cultivated. All the pupils were exceedingly neat In appearance, and attentive
and orderly throughout the day, Tlie
teacher, in a few woll-choscn words, announced, to the manueat delight of the
school, that the prises—aome of wliich
were contributed by friends of the institution .would shortly be presouted.
Messrs. Fraso *, Tetv-ue aud MacQuarric
favored the assemblage with appropriate
remarks. . .
■ Mr. Wise being called upon said It
gave hiin great pleasure to bs present and
audi ess the pupils, urging attention to
their studies and obedience to their excellent teaoher, who, he believed, wonld
devote his whole 'line to tlieir progress
and welfare, and that it was the duty of
the scholars to second him iu his painstaking and praisuwo thy efforts. Ho
Maid that in the.past financial year
$69,000 were expended by the . government for educational purposes, rind over
$82,000 were voted for tne like pnrpoaes
for this year; a sufficient indication, he
thought, that the Legislature was keenly
alive to the necessity of providing free
teaching for the y'.nng, and evidence of
the deep intci-e-it^Lflkeii iu tho cause < f
education by the mi.iister and Ids able
coadjutor the superintendent. With the
exception of publio works and the administration of justice the vote for educational purposes was larger than any
other, and he ventured to say, in comparison to popnlotiou, Dritish Colmn'ria
spent more money on acocrnt of schools,
than any other province of the Dominion.
Se considered tno position of a tccher
a public sohool a most onerous one; he
was brought into direct contact with the
children, moulded their character, so to
speak, and if his labors were appreciated
and aided bv home influence, tiigh ro-
suits would be reached. After expressing his thanks for being invited and the
pleasure he felt in boing present at the
examination, Mr, Wise called for throe
cheers for the teaohor which were .given
with a 'will.   Lusty cheers  were  also
?;ivcn for the trustees, Superintendent
'ope and the minister of education, with
ono cheer more for the Hou, John Rob*
son.   mi

A Trip to Ene.aml.
Mr. Horatio Webb, of Chilliwhack,
who left for a trip to England last summer, sends us a minute account of his
journey, from whicli wc take the following: The trip across the continent
was very pleasant, as everything for
the comfort of the traveller is to be
had on the way. Tlie officers are very
|nd we arrived at the end of
■.. journey exactly on time.
My of six hours about 125
u. <ito east of Winnipeg. We
_ tokened -about % o'olock Sunday
lornitfg arid ""were" told we had to
change care. I got up and wont outside the car and thero right before us
was a train nll un fire. The west
bound train due, to pass us at the last
station, was coming along at full speed
at a point where the track is built
along the edge of a lake on a sloping
rock, where the tilling hod slid right
into the lake and left a gap of 40 to 50
feet. The engineer did uot sue the
gap until too late to stop the train.
The engine fell over on its side a distance down of about 20 feet, the ten-
dor stood on its end, and the baggage
car and tho passenger cars, except tho
Pullman, wero completely burned.
We at pace set to work to cross over
andH^haiige' cars. The west bound
paiseafeerB took out can, and as a construction train happened to bo working
close by we got the engine, a flat car
for the baggage, and we crowded into
the one Pullman and a caboose and
Started on our journey. A special was
tailed irom Port Arthur and we ran
on until .we met Our speoial mado
up the 0 hours by the time we got to
Charleton Junction. We stayed ut
Charleton Junction about 8 hours and
had a nice walk through the town and
" ined that several parties had left
Ke for Vancouver, and people wero
y anxious to know all about Van-
rver aiid British "Columbia. From
Charleton Junction we went to Brock-
ville, crossed the St. Lawrence to Mor-
ristown, both of which are very pretty,
busy towns. From Morristown we
wmk to Norwich via Utica and Black
lavn railroad.' Norwich is the native
town of Mrs. Webb. We received a
genuine and hearty welcome here. We
stopped at Norwich and vicinity six
days, one day of which I spent at Syracuse Fair where I saw the famous herd
of Holstein cattle of Smith, Powell &
Lamb;.ilie great milking cow that has
a record of over 26,000 lbs. of milk for
one year; some very line cattle of all
breeds; also some fine horses, but
mostly trotting stock. There was a
fine display of agricultural implements,
and all kinds of machinery was working. The display uf grain and vegeta-
TSIwwarVerypoor. The attention appeared to be generally on stock and
implements. 1 saw two steers, one
3875 lbs. and the other 3800 lbs., C
and 7 years old respectively. After 6
days at Norwich we started on the
midnight train for New York, prefer-
ing to reach New York in the morning
rather than in the evening. The scenery along the C.P.R. you have haefde-
scribed so often that it will be no nows
to yuu. After you get through the
Rockies the scenery is rather monotonous; the rolling prairie being almost
waterless and treeless for 2 days, and
very bare and dried up. They had a
dry season in a great < many parts.
Some farmers told us their crop would
not average over seven bushels to the
acre, whilst others who liad the benefit
iderfdiower had better crops,
let » Mr. McMillan, formerly of
lull,, Columbia, at Brandon with
l» and family, and as the train stop-
^L5 minutes we liad a pleasant chat
r old times. He was glad to hear
of his many friends out there. Tho
scenery from a few miles beyond Winnipeg iB a succession of lakes und rocky
hills, the hills being covered with
small scrub fir, hemlock, tamorack,
aud<£uch tifljber—no farming land for
aboil a.-days' travel from Winnipeg.
The- sceinry from Charleton Junction
to BrocJtvUle wns beautiful, as we hod
notices! any fenced fields since we
passed Mr. Agassi.? farm, B.C., we
began to feel at home again. We left
New York Oct. 14th on tlie steamer
Gerinanic, a fine steamer 480 ft. long
md vew, fast,. We made our trip
Sw>Mj we Atlantic .almost on time,
^l^rnrytiig 4 miles in distance fmm
ifco'lttt trip uf the steamer. For 3
days our distance travelled in the 24
huurs was almost the same. We hud a
very smooth passage nearly nil the way.
We sighted land early Friday morning. Stopped at Quoenstown, outside
the lifiibor, ond landed Mio mails and
Iiasflengers. ' All the mails are lauded
lore and go by rail to Dublin and
from  there ■ try • steamer to Holyhead,
' ftrrivinj,' in Kngland sumo hours ahead
of us. The postal telegraph sorvico
conies every handy hero, as yuu can
makiKoniiiijfemouts to be met at Liverpool; or send to yuur friends, as they
haVe tho forms and rnilway guides on
board ship. It was luw tide when we
got tu tlie mouth of tho Mersey, so
% *:ui to anchor until Saturday morn-
%lf *v*nf? Hf^'cluckSaturday morn-
flg^*AeTrrT;ft»J tonder came out to us,
and as our train left ut 12:15 and we
hod to pass the custom house we had
to "hyack" and as we had not missed
any of our calculations we were very
anxious t» oafch this train. From
Livenm-flf *<£&*> Jjy'-the Midland,

and other beautiful Hennery. Tho
hedge feiiees  and   the   old   styles of
'IVOrkntg  horses single file and other
,:fni?iu.wu,rk made mc realize I was in
my native land.   I arrived home at 8
'''o'clook Saturday night and found
everything almost natural, that is with
regard to buildings and fixtures. A
good many recognized mo as a Webb,
out..they did not know which onu it
was. On Sunday morniug I went to
the old iParisk, fituirch and recoived

Hanlan arrived in New York on the
22nd inst. The following is part of
an interview witli a reporter:
"When do you expect to go to Australia?"
"Probably in about six weeks. I
havo so timed my visit that I will be
able to vow this match with Beach
without having been enervated by the*
relaxing climate of the Antipodes."
"Is the race with Beach a certain-
ty?"
"Just about. I deposited £100
with tho Sportsman in London before
I loft as a forfeit on a challenge to
row Beach on the Nepean river, in
Australia, fur £500 a side, and although he has not cabled his acceptance, I have an assurance that the
well known sporting man, Mr. Joo.
Thompson, of Melbourne, has posted
£250 forfeit in behalf of Beach for a
match with me iu Australia. I certainly expect to win in tho coming
match, which will take place next
June or July, which will be winter fn
Australia. If Beach can defeat me
on the Nepean I shall be satisfied that
he is a better oarsman than I am. The
Nepean ' affords an absolutely fair
course." Being asked why he selects
tho Neperfn river in place of the Paramatta river he replied: "For tho
simple reason that I do not consider
the Paramatta course a fair one. It is
full of eddies, besides being very
crooked. In addition to this the
water jb full of jelly fish, whicli makes
it most diflicult to scull in."

Chicago, Dec. 26.—Andrews, or

two pals, for the Adams express rob*
bery on the St. Louis & San Francisco
railroad, when $100,000 was taken.
London. Dec. 2(i.—The Times says :
—'• That Lord Ohurohill should have
pleaded as a reason for his resignation
the undue expenditure by the war department is quite natural, As chancellor of the exchequer the only way
to become popular was to become
popular was to be niggardly with the
people's money. Lord Churchill wants
to be talked about all the time and
wondered at. The atate of mind iu
which Salisbury finds himself is easier
to imagine than describe. After all
the swaggering which he has endured
from his youthful right hand man, his
feelings should bo spared. He had to
put up with all kinds of abuse.
Whether the cabinet will remain, and
under what shape it will nppear when
politics rise once more triumphant

Syracuse, N.Y., Dec. 2G.-The 300

Hoyland winning by nine miles.
Philadelphia, Dec, 26.—The six-

10 o'clock last night. Of the fourteen
starters un Monday only six remained
in the race at tho close. The scores
wero as follows:—Stoke!, 386 miles,
30 laps; Hayes, 336 miles, 11 laps;
Elson, 341 miles 20 laps; Golden, 317

London, Dec. 26.—English journals
prediet that Gladstone will lie iu ofiiee
again in a couple nf months, and many
cooiyaded observers are uf tha same
opinion. The present government, nt
any rato, is doomed. Lord Hartington
will not consent to join Salisbury in
tho formation of a coalition government, unless Bllowed to give several
seats in the cabinet to liis most prominent followers, replacing men who
are too fond of ollice to givo up their
pusitions without a struggle. The demoralization of the party would thus
bo intensified, and the split caused by
Lord Randolph Churchill's desertion
is widened. It is a question whether
L >rd Salisbury would nut lose more
from defections in his own party than
lie would gain from unionist accession
if he should a^ree to Lurd Hartington's
terms. Lord Salisbury will probably
find himself obliged to proceed alone,
patching up the existing cabinet as
best he can, and standing squarely on
a Tory platform. The overthrow of
such tt government is merely a question
of weeks and a choice of opportunity.
Though private gossip interprets the
political situation to ho unchanged, it
is known that the bulk of the Conservatives are opposed In Hartington ns

Austria into wnr. The often repeated
story of his shooting Count Reitem is
reaffirmed, and a further rumor of
some insult offered to a German military uttaohe at St. Petersburg scents
