THIS MORWXe'S DISPATCHES.
DISGRACEFUL tactics.
Montreal, Jan. 28.—Political
circles are agitated over the reported
negotiations between tho Hon. James
McShane and Mr. Leblanc, M. P. P.
for Laval, to effect a compromise by
pairing proceedings to disqualify McShane in connection with the Laprairie
election, and the withdrawal of the
contestation in Laval. The conservatives are indignant at the negotiations
and say that if the compromise is effected it will cause a serious split in
the party. It iB said that ono of the
inducements offered by McShane is
that of the privilege to the' Minerve
company to use the government building on Jacques Cartier square for another year, while if the case is not
dropped the building will be sold. It
is said the negotiations are being conducted by a very close friend of Chapleau. It is understood McShane promised that if the summons against him
is withdrawn to pay all tho costs incurred so far in the Laval and Laprairie contests, and see that the proceedings against Lablanc aro discontinued.

Coimramit-ttiOTOi*.
Chief Devlin Explains.
Editor Columbian: Having read
the letter in your cotemporoty, the
(t'riaiiiimi, this morning by "a well-
known citizen/' allowmoa few lines
iu your valuable paper to explain* to
the publio, exactly what took place.
About 11 o'clook on Wednesday forenoon last, as I was going down McKenzie street, I met one of the brothers from St Louis College, who uked
me if I hsd seen Mr. Geo. A. Kelly
that morning. I replied that I had
not, but that probably, he would find
him (Mr. Kelly) at McDonough'sstore.
The brother stated that he had just
came from Mr. McDonough's, and
that ho was afraid Mr. Kelly was sick
and unable to get up. Upon the belief
that Mr. Kelly was sick I knocked on
the window with my hand, and getting no reply, I went to the back of the
dwelling, the window of which wu
boarded up to such a height that I
was obliged to stand on a box in order
that I might look in. There I uw
Mr. Kelly, who signalled me with his
hand that he wss all right, I then want
around to the front door and uw tha
brother deliver a message to Mr.
Kelly. These, Mr. Editor, are the
exact circumstances of what happened,
I having done so merely because I
thought Mr. Kelly wu sick in bad,
and if ao, I might help him in some
way. Whether or not this is an outrage, as the "well-known citizen" calls
it, I leave for the public to judge.
Yours truly.

Berlin, Jan. 25.—The Itilitar
Wocheiiblatt publishes with authority
a reply to the Iimitiiie Busk's lata
comparisons of the frontier forces. It
says authentic estimates of the peace
effectives stationed on the frontier provinces of Austria, Russia, and Germany show that Russia has 315,500
men and 160 field guns, Germany nu
98,200 men and 338 field guns. Tha
H'oehenblatt next compares the military situation on the Russian' side of
tho frontier with that on the German
side. Taking the forces within territories of about equul area it shows that
the Russians, within 119,311 square
kilometers, have 123,276 men, 24,198
horses, and 2,711 guns of all kinds,
while the Germans, within 119,466
square kilometres have only 81,714
men, 14,520 horses, and 238 guns.
The garrison of Warsaw, consisting of
20,000 men, 3,000 hones, snd 60 field
guns, is contrasted with the garrison
of Koenigsburg, consisting of 7,700
men, 1,400 horses, and 50 field gans,
and the garrison of Breslau, with
5,000 men, 1,160 horses, and 32 field
guns.
Referring to the Invalide Bum's it-
sertion that 4,860 kilometres of railway
have been constructed in eastern Germany since 1878, the WcssHmblatt
states that tho railway extension tinee
1878 amounts to only 1,866 kilometres.

■ ■.. as it	
The session.
It has conic to bo almost u settled
custom   now-a-tluys   to   mako   the
governor's speech at the opening of
both provincial legislatures and federal parliament a merely formal document, moro conspicuous  for what
it do«s not than for   what   it   does
contain. . llrruce we have becomo
accustomed   tb   expect    from   the
speech very little  from   which   a
knowledge of tho policy of tho gov-
ment or the workof tho session may
bo obtained.   Tho speech delivered
at Victoria yesterday does not particularly differ from others in this
respect,- although   it  foreshadows
several measures of considerable importance to the country.   The gov-
ernor was, fortunately able to   congratulate the house upon  the   continued prosperity   of   the   country,
which has been steadily and rapidly
increasing iii wealth and population.
It is certainly satisfactory to be told
that the public revenues continue to
increase.    The expenditures are increasing, we know, and   there has
been in the minds of many people a
fear that the income would scarcely
lie able to meet the heavy demands
that are certain to be nude  upon it
during this ami   succeeding   years.
The increase in population,  and the
rapid growth of many  new  communities at a great  distance  from
the contral government must necessarily add enormously to tho demand
for roads, public buildings, and  tho
appliances nocessary for the government of the people.   If the increaso
of revenue is not less than   the   increase in expenditure will  be,  both
the government and the people may
bo   heartily   congratulated.     The
speech tells us that the million dollar loan authorized last session lias
been successfully placed, und it   is
certainly very gratifying to lind our
bonds bringing a   premium   in  the
market.    We are also   gratified   to
learn that tho government does not
regard the defonsive appliances existing at Esquimau and Victoria a
sufficient protection of the province.
Long ago tlie   Columbian  pointed
out the absolute necossity for mainland defenoes as well.   Proceedings
are still going on   to   recover   the
$250,000 forfeited by the C.P.R. on
account of the  breach  of contract
with respect to the Coal Harbor extension.   If this sum should be recovered, wo think it would  not be
out of place to apply a portion of it
to reimbursing those people who invested money in good faith at Port
Moody and lost heavily by reason of
the change of terminus.   Tho $25,-
000  deposited   by  the  Kootenay
company has likewise been forfeited
to the province.   This  fact  gives
ample proof of the  baselessness   of
the charge, so frequently put forward
by opposition papers, that the government had recklessly given away
an enormously rich heretage to this
company.   Tho bonanza proved to
be so disappointing that the company
found it more economical to  abandon it and forfeit $25,000 in hard
cash than to comply with the conditions which the government attached to the grant.   We think this is
a great loss to the country, for  we
believe the development of Kootenay
in accordance with  the  company's
charter would be of more value than
the forfeit.   It is hinted that legislation may be needed for giving additional protection to  coal   miners.
We hope the  hint  will  reault in
action.   The two' terrible catastrophes that have befallen the miners
at Nanaimo within a year call   for
such measures as will,  if  possible,
prevent such dreadful occurrences in
future.   We notice with satisfaction
a paragraph in the speech referring
to the possible need of a revision of
the federal constitution.   Wo think
it was a mistake not to send a delegate to the  interprovincial   conference which sat at Quebec last summer.    No  person  who  has paid
attention to the subject can escape
the conviction that a revision of the
constitution will be in the public interest; and it seemed to us a  great
pity that an opportunity so favor
able as tho Quebec conference for a
general discussion  of the question
should not have been tak en ad vantage
of by every province  in  tho Dominion.   If the matter is dealt with
bythe provincial legislature,   however,   perhaps   a    result    equally
satisfactory may be  reached.   Tho
irrigation of the  dry regions enst
of the Cascades is a very important
subject, and we aro glad to see it occupying the attention of the government.   If a feasible and inexpensive
scheme can be devised, and carried
into eli'ect it ought, if necessary, to
receive a reasonable amount of aid
from the provincial treasury.   The
■peeeh indicates  a  desire on  tho
part of the government to  promote
the development of the country   by
means  of  railways.   Reference is
made to the Shusway it Okanagan
Railway, the Cariboo Railway, and
the proposed extension of the island
railway to the northern part of Vanoouver Island.   Every one of these
schemes ia of very great importance
tothe publio interest.   We  shall
return to this stibjeot on Monday,

A Temperance Illiifitrntl-n.   •
' A few years ago a tinted wild-beast
tainur gavo a performance with his
pets in one uf the leading London
thoatrcs. Ho put his lions, tigew,
leopards, and hyenas through their
part of tlio entertainment, awing tho
audience by his wonderful nerve and
his control over them. As a closing
act to the performance, he wns to introduce au enormous boa-constrictor,
thirty-6vo feet long. Ho had bought
it when it was only about two or three
days old; and for twenty-live yenrs he
hud handled it daily, so that it was
considered perfectly harmless and completely under his control. He had semi
it grow from a tiny reptile, which he
often carried in hia bosom, into n fearful monster.
Tho curtain rose upon an Indian
woodland scene. The weird strains of
an oriental band steal through the
trees. A rustling noise is heard,and a
huge serpent is seen winding its way
through the undergrowth. It stops.
Its head is erect. Its bright eyes
sparkle, Its wholo body Beems animated. A man emorges from the
heavy foilage. Their eyes meet. Tho
serpent quails before the man,—man
is victor. The serpent is under tho
control of a master. Under Ins guid-
anco and direction it performs a series
of fearful feats. At a signal from tho
man it slowly approaches him, and begins to coil its heavy foldBaround him.
Higher and higher do they rise, until
man and serpent seem blended into
one. Its hideous head is reared aloft
above the maBs. The man gave a
little scream, and the audience unite
ih a thunderous burst of applause,
but it freezes upon tlieir lips. The
trainer's scream was a wail of death
agony. Those cold, slimy folds had
embraced him for tho last time.
They crushed the life out of him, and
tho Horror-strickenaudieneoHeard bono
after bono crack, as those powerful
folds tightened upon him. Man's
■plaything-had become his muster. His
slave for twenty-five years had now
enslaved him.
In this horrible incident is portrayed the whole story of intemperance. The
mnn who had taken the first glass of intoxicating liquor has the boa of intemperance in his bosom. If he throttles
the monster now, it is easily done.
But if he permits it to live, feeds nnd
nourishes it, he may control it for
twenty-five years, but it is continually
growing. And somo duy its soul destroying folds will encircle his soul, and
bear it to t^oso regions of woo "where
the worm dieth not, nnd the tire is not
quenched " The unchangeable decree
of almighty God is, ''No dunkards
shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Tho Dinner She Brought Hint.
A wifestepped into a bar-room where
her husband wan drinking with a
friend. Setting a covered dish which
sho had brought with her upon iho
table shesniii: "I'muuiing, husband,
that you arc two busy to come home
to dinner, I have brought you yours."
She then departed. With a forced
laugh he invited the friend to ditto
with him, but on removing the cover
from tho dish found only a slip of
paper, on which was written: "I hnpo
you will enjoy your meal; it is the
same ns your family have at home." •
The First tilnss.
Tlioro may be those, said John B.
Gough, who will take a boy of eighteen
yenrs of age, pure and BWeet and clean,
and give him Irs first glass of wine,
but 1 would not du it for all the money that has been coined iu buying and
selling drink since alcohol was litst
discovered. I would rather givo to
that poor fhrieking, blaspheming
wretch the last glass that norvod him
in delirium tremens to blow out his
brains than 1 would his lirst glnss.
Give him no first and there will be no
second.
She dad Two Husbands.
Oauon Farrur used to tell of a woman iu Loudon who said she had two
husbands in oue man. One of them
was a kind, honest and rcspectablo
person, whom she loved, and that was
the husband When sober. Tho other was
a brutal fellow who wus constantly ill-
treating and abusing hor, nnd that wns
her husband when he was drunk.
There is no doubt thut liquor alters
the whole character of a man,

A Trade For tke Devil.
If the devil were to livo ori the earth
iu the form of a man and to choose a
trade, what do you suppose he would
choose? Would he be a schoul in niter?
No; ho hates light nnd knowledge
Would he be a blacksmith/ Nn'f hu
d« oa nut like hard work. What, then,
would he do? Why, he would keep a
beer saloon. That is just the trade for
the devil, fur ho could lead an idle life
and do a deal of mischief.

Japanese Honors.
Mr. Thos. Mowat, inspector of fish

yesterday from Mr. K. Ito, president
of the Hokusui Kyokwai Society, at
Sappora, Japan, informing him that
he had boen elected a corresponding
member of the society, which entitled
him to the monthly reports. Tho letter was accompanied by a copy of tho
report winch, unfortunately, is printed in the Japanese detractor, and will
probably occupy Mr. Mowat's attention during the balance of tho year.
K. Ito is one of a number uf distinguished Japanese who have received a
liberal English education at the expense of the government, for the purpose of enabling them to become thoroughly familiar with the customs and
principles uf government prevailing in
civilized nations. Ho lnia travelled
through Kuvope and America, and
visited thii city last fall ou his way
home to Japan, The Hokusui Kyokwai is a society established for the
purpose of promoting the fulling interests in Northern Japan, and in his
letter K. Ito asks Mr. Mowat to contribute some articles on fisheries for
publication in tlie society's monthly
report.
A u-ikIi r,>r Illicit j.
This morning as the chain gang was
proceeding down Columbia street to
continue the woik of street cleaning
which they have been performing for
some days past, one of the gang, Put-
rick Kane, broke from the ranks and
make a dash for libeity. The guard
in charge started in pursuit of the runaway, who headed for tlio swamp, and
tbe chase might have bten a long onu
but for a team which waa driven across
the street thus bringing Kane to a
standstill. Seeing himself cornered and
escape im* osaible, Kane threw upon
hi-i coat and told the guard, who had
him covered with his rifle, to shoot
him, aa death was better than working
iu the chain ^ang. The guard lowered
his rifle and advanced to seize Kane,
who, seeing an opening to the rear,
made a run towards the whurf with
tho evident intention of drowning
himself. Fortune did not favor him
in this move any more than iu the former, and he had made but a few stops
when he was caught and shackled,
hands and feet. During this time the
remainder of the gang, 15 in nun-bur,
hnd kept very quiet and showed uo
inclination to escape, with tho exception of a c<>uple of Chinamen. One of
these was about to mako a break down
tho street when a big mgro, also a
member of the gang, struck the celestial and knocked him down. This
had a cooling effect on the other Chinaman and no further attempt ut escape
was mnde. Tho whole gang were
placed iu an express wagon and conveyed back to the jail. The guard
deserves much credit for his prompt
and courageous action in dealing with
the mutiny, for had he shown any
signs of weakness the disorder would
have spread and half of the gang might
have escaped. Kane was convicted a
couple of weeks ago for breaking into a
railway car and stealing goods therefrom.    _m_m___m__a____m_mmm_m

OPENING OFJHE HOUSE.
large Attendance awl Impressive
Ceremonies.
Tho second session of the sixth parliament of British Columbia opened at
Victoria yesterday afternoon at 3
o'clock. The opening ceremonies wore
of the usual character, but the attendance of spectators was much largor
than on any previous similar occasion.
A guard of honor waB furnished from
"C" battery nnd from tho British Columbia rifles, and the usual Bnluto was
fired. Many ladies were present, and
their magnificent costumes, togothor
with tho gorgeous uniforms observable
here and there, produced n spectacle
such ns was never before witnessed in
the provincial capital. After tlio
usual formalities, his honor was pleased
to deliver tho following
SPEECH PBOM THE  Til It ONE!
Mit. Speakbb and Gentlemen ok
the Legislative Assembly;—It affords mo very great pleasure in meeting you at this the opening of the second session of the fifth term of our
provincial legislature, to bo able to
congratulate you upon.another year of
peace and prosperity,
Tho publio revenue continues to
Bhow gratifying increase. Population
is flowing in and finding remunerative
employment nud creating happy hemes
in our towns nnd rural districts. The
patient and Judustrous agriculturist
has reaped a bountiful harvest, for
which he has found a satisfactory market. The auriferous grounds have
yielded up their precious treasures liberally to tho persevering minors; nnd
if our quartz ledges have disappointed
expectations formed at the beginning
of the year, it cannot bo denied that
they give increasing promise of future
wealth. The yield of our coal mines
considerably exceed that of nny previous year, while the fishing and lumber industries continue to flourish aud
expand.
Our seal fishing industry received a
rude check by tlie high-handed acts
committed under another flag in Bob-
ring Sea, inflicting serious loss upon
enterprising citizens. I havo caused
representations to be made upon the
subject, and there is overy reason to
believe that the action taken by the
inporial government will result iu securing indemnity for the past and the
peaceable enjoyment of our rights in
the future.
The loan authorized by you hns been
negotiated ou satisfactory terms, und
it is highly gratifying to find our bonds
bearing 4J per cent, interest quoted
in the English market at a considerable premium.
The establishment of a battery of
Dominion artillery, after long delay,
is matter for satisfaction; but much remains to be done in order to placo the
province in a proper stato ot defence,
and I havo no doubt representations
mado at Ottawa will stfeurd ■ tho early
attainment of that important object.
In conaequence of serious discontent
amongst certain Indian tribes, in Kootenay and on the northwest coast, acting i'i conjunction with the Dominion
government, I sent coimniiisioners to
confer and treat wilh the disaffected
bauds. Thu papers connected with
these missions will bo laid before you.
At the request of the Dominion
government, I commissioned one of
my ministers to proceed to Ottawa for
the purpose of discussing several questions of public importance. Tho papers connected with that mission will
also be placed before you.
In the case of the oWMrktf ii'of tne
precious metals within the railway
belt, referred to the supreme court of
Canada, the judges (although not
unanimous) have decided adversely to
the claims of the provinco, and the
necessary steps are being taken for an
appeal to tho judicial committee of her
majesty's privy council.
At the opening of thu last session
you wero informed by my predecessor
that prulimiliary steps had betm ttken
against tlie sureties of the Canadian
Pacific Railway company, for failure
to fulfil the agreement for extension
of the railway to Coal Harbour and
English Bay. Legal proceedings for
the recovery of tho amount of the
bond aro still pending.
In consequence nf tho failure of the
"Columbia nnd Kootenay Railway
and Transportation Company"-tu coin-
ply with tho terms of their agreement,
tho cash deposit made undor tho act
has been forfo! ted, and now forms
part of tlio consolidated revenue of tho
provincL1, and tho net incorporating Iho
company i- now null and void.
While tho punt year affords much
came for congratulation, 1 cannot ttfke
leave of its record without inferring to
tho terrible collu-ry calamity which be-
fol Nanaimo, whereby that important
community was suddenly plunged into deepest mourning, and a largo number of families bereft of thoir breadwinners, Yon will be a-ked to paiic-
tiou a contribution mado from the
public treasury towards a fund for tlio
relief of those rendered destitute by
that dire calamity. It also becomes
my painful duty to r. fer to a similar,
though, fortunately, Iubs destructive,
calamity which t>cfcl oue of tlie Well*
ingtou collierio-* on Tuesday hist, resulting in serious loss of lifo, Tt will
remain for you to consider whether
additional legislative i-nftgunrils cannot be thrown around our Imriiy and
industrious coal minors.
In response to certain representations, I authorized a special commissioner to proceed to the mother country, with a view to ascertain whether
a practicable scheme could not bo devised for the purpose of promoting a
limited emigration from tho north of
Scotland of carofully seclocted fishermen, from among the class commonly
known as "crofters," and who, it ia
believed, would be eminently adapted
for the development af our son fisheries. This has been done without entailing nny charge upon the publio revenue, aim you will probably be invited fo consider how far such a scheme
may be practicable.
It is now more than twenty years
aince the constitution of tho Dominion
wus framed and brought into actual
operation. It may be advisable for
you to consider whethor practical experience of its working for noarly a
quarter of a century has not revealed
defects in tlmt constitution which it
would be alike in tho interesti of the
province and of confederattoti to have
remedied.
The subject of irrigating the soil in
tho extensivo dry region east bf the
Cascades is one of very great importance, and it may be well to consider
whether the artesian well system could
not be resorted to with advantage.
You cannot fail to be impressed
with the importance of the Shuswap k
Okanagan Railway; the necessity for the
early construction of a railway connet-
ing the great mineral region of Cariboo
with the Canadian Pacific line; and tho
desirableness of extending the Esquimalt
and Nanaimo Railway to the northern
end of Vancouver Island, For the first
of these works you havo already made
liberal provision, and it only remains for
the Dominion parliament to extend to it
that assistance which the province has a
right to expect. Exploratory surveys
for the Cariboo Railway and for extension of the Island Railway have heen
made, reports of which will be submitted.
The commissioners appointed to consolidate and rovise the provincial statutes have nearly completed their labors.
Thoir report will be placed beforo you
in the course of tho session, nud bills
embodying suggested improvements submitted.
Amongst other measures to be submitted are, a bill for constituting a county court with limited jurisdiction in
criminal matters; a bill constituting a
court for tlio consideration of crown
cases reserved; a bill for increasing the
efficiency of tho county courts; and a bill
to regulate tho issuing of wholesale liquor
licences in rural districts. The public
accounts will he laid bofore you, aud estimates for the public .somen during tho
next year will bo submitted for your consideration.
In leaving you to your deliberations, I
pray that vou may he directed by the
Supreme Ruler in your efforts to promote
the best interests of tho province.
At the conclusion of the reading of
the speech, his honor the lieutenant-
governor nnd staff retired. The Speaker (Hon. C. E. Pooley) took tho chair
