Wednesday Mnrnl.r. July I, ISSS.
current Events and Opinions,
Than Mr, Parnell, eviction haB
had few more vehement or unreserved denouncers. He has, over
und over again, spoken of it as
"fiendish work," aud indignantly
condemned it generally without Any
reservation whatever. Ho was,
moreover, »n approving listener to
Mr. John Dillon, when on a memorable occasion in the house of commons that gentleman protested that
if he was an Irish farmer, and that
a - body of men came to turn him
out of hia house and land he would
most decidedly shoot as many of
thein as he could manage 'to do."
Well, Mr; Parnell himself is an
evicting landlord. In the paper
recently we read that lie had evicted some; of his "poorer tenants,1'
: and nbout a year ago he appeared
personally in the Dublin Courts as
plaintiff in a suit against another,
a respectable widow lady, and obtained an order for her eviction.
Yet this evicting landowner has
been presented with £40,000, which
was mainly subscribed by IriBh tenants. And, furthermore, he has
had the uncontrolled expenditure
of the vast funds subscribed in
America and elsewhere for the laud
and national league, aggregating, it
lias been computed, to nearly half
a million of mousy, of which no
account whatever has, or probably
ever will be, rendered to the donors,
All that is known of the expenditure for certain is, that the people
for whom it was principally intended -that ill, the evicted tenants—
have received only an almost infinitesimal portion of it, amounting to
not a quarter per cent, of the receipts as published in tbe papers.
But the rhetorical artifices of the
league mercenaries will, no doubt,
continue for some time longer to lie
successful in concealing, these serious facts. They cannot afford to
let the country be at peace—they
must lire. Their trade is to 'delude and exasperate the people by
false and inflammatory representations, by creating imaginary grievances, and pretending that the agitation is the spontaneous effect of
the intolerable character of fancied
oppression. - They have succeeded
in exciting tlie cupidity of the
farmers by taking credit to them
solves for the recent reductions
made under the provisions of tSI
land net, and have in consequence
found in them their best supporters,
But it is likely that this class of the
Irish population will soon come to
see that not much more -value can
be expected for their money, and
stop the supplies. And above and
before nil, when it is mode apparent
to the Irish people generally that
their "patriots" seriously contemplate, in collusion with the British government, to betray their
country's cause by further centralizing the administration of its
affairs, there is little doubt that
their influence for evil will comfc to
au end. — Mclio.nl Pigott, Irisl,
Home Ruler, in Potlniglitty Review.

exultation over his foil and pursue
bim with the. foulest personal insults, such insults as no gentleman
would permit hiniself to offer even-
to a political enemy, above all to an
aged and illustrious man, worn with
life long labor in the service of the
state. The inference drawn will be
that in the case of Ireland, kindness and remedial measures avail
nothing, and that there! is nothing
for it but the iron heel. This inference would be wr(>ng. Towards
the Irish people statesmen ought
not to be weary of well-doing.
They ought not to stop before they
have given Ireland improved local
institutions, n thotpuglily reformed
land law, with the Torreus system,
increased facilities for emigration,
her share, of whatever respeot is
implied in t^rpreeence of royalty,
and everything else which, legislation can do. to promote her prosperity or gratify her feelings consistently with the firm maintenance
of the legislative union. [, But as to
the best and tho only way pf dealing with Irish conspirao_v,*khe behavior of the Parnellites towards
the great conciliator can haVe left
no doubt in the mind of ally human
1>eing.—2%e Week
Seldom has a moral: been more
decisively pointed than that whieh
is conveyed in the conduct of the
Parnellites towards Mr. Gladstone.
That Mr. Gladstone's ugrarian legislation for Ireland was;sound, we
at nll events do not maintain. But
it is not for the Parnellites who
wish or affect to wish to go farther
in the same direction to tax it with
unsoundness. Certain it is that no
other British stutesmnu, not even
the author of Catholic emancipation, has done so much or so risked
his reputation for the sake of Ireland.- If at the same time he has
been compelled to strengthen the
law for the prevention of wholesale murder and outrage, every sane
man, even amoug the. Parnellites,
must know that as tho head of (fie
government, bound in duty and
honor to protect life and proporty,
he could not possibly have evaded
the necessity. Were not those
whom he wns called upon to save
from murder Irish as well as the
murderers) Towards the Irish
members in the house of commons,
though they have habitually treated
him with the most ruffianly brutality, the attitude ahd language of Mr.
Gladstone has been invariably courteous; he has made as sparing use
ns possible «f his power of putting
down their obstruction, and has
evidently olung in spite of nll disappointments nml all warnings to
the hope that lie might yet win
them over by u policy of persistent
conciliation, Such conduct would
ut least have secured respectful
treatment at the hands of any men
in whoso hearts generosity qr oven
decency resided. What Is the return made for it by tho Parnellites I
Not only do they league with the
Tories, the hereditary enemies ot
Ireland, to Mm out Mr. Gladstone's
government, bllt  thoy  howl with
The defeat of the Gladstone administration was not a parliamentary condemnation of the Russian
or Egyptian or Irish policy of the
government It was a question of
an increased tax upon j beer. As
Mr. Gladstone pointedly said, it
was a choice between a .tax upon
alcoholic liquors and upon tea and
sugar, and the government preferred
to lay it upon the intoxicating
liquor and not upon the innocent
But the beer interest is
There were many Liberals
absent. The Parnellites Were urged
to do everything to defeat the ministry. Thirty-nine Parnellites voted
against the government. The vote
wns announced. It was 264 to 252,
and the greatest of English stales-
men, in the moment of averting
from the country n vast and disastrous war, was defeated. j The London papers and the country were
evidently amazed and deeply disturbed by the sudden fall of the
ministry. This is not [surprising,
for tho situation wits not assuring.
It was, not a defeat .upon a simple
issue between the parties, upon the
occurrence of which the victorious
party would naturally succeed to
the control of affairs. It was a
defeat brought about (by a vote
which cavtd nothing for the special
question involved, but was merely
hostile to tlio ministry without being friendly to its natural successors.
The whole position was false. There
were many appeals upon the ministry not to resign, nndi tho appeal
was bused upon the duty of forbearance until the elections. The
plea for forbearance came too late.
It is perfectly well known that a
defeated ministry resigns. If,
therefore, the situation is such that
their resignation at the! moment is
not^ desirable .for the country, it is
the duty of the opposition not to
defeat them, and thereby to demand
their resignation. The Gladstone
government has been overthrown by
uu unnatural alliance, u combination of Tories aiid of Irish Nationalists. The last hold the balance
of power in the house ot commons,
and vote upon every question, however important, uot. according to
its merits and its advantage or disadvantage to Ihe general interests
of the empire whioh they are constitutionally chosen to protect, but
solely witli reference to tho probable
bearing of their vote upon Irish
interests. Mr. Gladstone was entirely undisturbed by his defeat,
and it is now shrewdly suspected
that he was throughout the master
of the situation, und "played to
loose." He is thrown out upon a
question in whicli ho is plainly in
the right. • He fortes the Tories, to
show the country whether and how;
they ean gnvern. He is released-
from the perplexities of thn IriBh
coercion act, and; -the iTorics are
compelled to pursue his general foreign policy, and to refrain from
taking a positive course upon which
to appeal to the country. As a
mere piece of political tactics the
resignation is consummately skillful, and Mr. Gladstone has enabled
his party to go into the election
with confidence nud enthusiasm.
There is one view of the sit nation
in England whioh is worth remarking: parties are as thoroughly organized and party spirit is as warm
there as here, aud party government
|s its absolute. Now a complete
party change of administration bus
taken place in England—a change
as tolal ns that in the United States
last March. Yet tliere is not a
postmaster nor a customs ollicer in
the kingdom who trembles. Probably not a hundred changes in the
civil service will be made. Yet the
election will bn ns interesting and
aa warmly contested na any that
takes place in this -country. Tho
experience of Kngland shows the
ineffable absurdity of the theory
that nobody in this country would
cure for politics, or turn out to vole
at au election, if thc fate of overy
messenger-hoy and coal-heaver and
Bcrubbing-womnn in tho public service did not depend upon a party
change of administration. — Htr-

Wednesday Hornlnc 4nly 1, ltW3.
A disgusted American, hearing
that the British Oolumbia government had laid claim to several millions of tieres in Alaska, writes to a
California paper: "I suppose if the
United States were to purch'ase the
north pole the British would claim
that it is located in their territory!"
Very likely. The land lying round
the north pole that doesn't belong
to Britain or Canada now is scarcely
worth huving.
The eastern news yesterday afternoon was more disquieting than
anything that lias come over tlie
wires for .several weeks. Russia
does not seem to have relaxed her
belligerent preparations a moment,
and is pushing forward into Afghanistan with anything but pacific intent. It may he that tlie fall of
Gladstone has aroused her suspicions, and she is preparing for the
worst. If the rumored alliance between Britain and Germany should
lie accomplished, the adjustment of
the European balance of power
would undergo a great change.
From yesterday's despatches it
will be seen that a New York jury
has acquitted Mrs. Dudley, who
attempted to shoot O'Donovan Rossa, on the ground of insanity,
There is no plea more prolific of
miscarriage of justice iu the United
States than that of insanity. Mrs.
Dudley is probably a crank of the
Guiteau stripe; aud although llos-
sa's death might not be a national
calamity, the circumstances do not
strike us as being sufficient to excuse her rash act. It may be true
that she is really insane, but the
plea is at least a suspicious one under the circumstance.
Victoria has been steadily gaining a notoriety that is anything but
enviable. In Friday's Times we
read that Mr. R, E. Green, teller in
the Dominion Savings Bank, had
gone out between two days and
and left' many creditors. This man,
like too many others at tlie provincial capital, had been for some time
living in a style quite beyond his
means. He may be classed among
the "fast" men who are almost sure
to run against a rock upon whicli
both fortune and reputation nre suddenly and irretrievably lost. The
alarming, extend,to which drink-
jug, gambling, and Sabbath-breaking
have grown in Victoria leads ono to
look with great misgivings upon the
future. There are some of Victoria's
influential men who carry about
with them a fearful load of moral
responsibility.
The Indian Franchise.
Dr. Oronhyatekha, an educated
and intelligent Indian who resides
at London, Ont,' writes to the
Ontario pirns in defense of the proposal to enfranchise the Indians.
The Indian doctor points to the
fact that there are many of liis race
in Ontario who have not only the
Intelligence and education necessary
to make them capable of exercising
the frannchise wisely, but they aro
quite as independent of the government as many who now vote. These
Indians live upon the reservations,
:■".: where each holds from 50 to 200
acres of land. The farms are cultivated with a success that makes a
very favorable showing when contracted with adjoining farms owned
• by white men. Large crops aro
raised for the market, and the farm
buildings in some cases are substantial and even elegant. The Indian
doctor maintains that there is no
reason why these people, who are
intelligent, industrious and loyal,
Bhould be excluded from thc full
privilege of British citizenship.
The simple circumstance that a few
North-west Indians have rebelled
against the government he does not
consider sufficient. The rebellion,
he says, was led hy a "white mnn"
(Kiel) who is also au ex-member of
the Canadian parliament! Tliis
seems to us one of the weak points
in Dr. Oronhyatekha's defense, The
loyalty of Kiel and the half-breeds
of the Northwest cannot be depended upon, and the fact thut the
votes of these half-breeds made
Riel a member of parliament while
hii hands were stained by the innocent blood of Thomas Scott shows
one of the dangers of admitting
thit branch of the Indian race to
■ths lol) privileges of British citizen-
Alp, As far as the civilized Indian! ot Ontario are concerned, we
have no irtaection to their enfranchisement, bat we have a decided
objection against the sume privilege being extended to the Indians
of the North-west and the uncivilised Wf.ons of the Dominion,   In
British Columbia, for example, it
might come to pass that the Indian
vote would swamp the whito vote,
us there are more Indians than
white men in the country. So soon
as Indians give unmistakable evidence of their fitness to exercise
the franchise with - discretion we
shall interpose no obstacle in the
way of their being placed on tlie
voters' list.
Moving Forward.
Ottawa, Juno 26.—Van Home has
stated to nio verbally they will commence to survey the New Westininstei-
braucli witliiu five weoks, So soon as
thoy finish laying mils on the main lino,
will move a force down to work upon
tho bmnoh.—J. A. K. Homek.
Tho above telegram, received by
tbe mayor of tip city on Saturday,
must be extremely gratifying to all
our citizens. In our last issue wo
published a despatch from Mr.
Homer giving particulars of tlie
tinancial arrangement made between
tlie syndicate and tho government,
and we ventured to predict that
one result of that' arrangement
would be the commencement of
active operations very soon at this
end of the road. Tlie despatch we
now publish confirms that opinion.
The operation of, surveying the
branch will not be an extensive
one. It has already been pretty
thoroughly surveyed, und profiles
and estimates have been prepared.
It is expected that the main line
across tho mountains will bo finished
early in September, and then, or
before then, a gang of men may bo
expected down with tlie necessary
plant to push through the branch
line. We understand that work on
the Coal Harbor extension will go
on simultaneously with work on the
New Westminster branch. There
will be thousands of men engaged
on these works, and during tho construction of them we may look for
very lively times in this city and its
vicinity. Besides railway construction there will be station houses and
freight houses erected in this city,
and large terminal buildings and
wharves at Coal Harbor. One of
the tirst buildings to be erected
there, we believe, will be a magnificent hotel, something after the pattern of the Northern Pacific Railway's Tacoma House, at Tacoma.
This hotel will be built for the C.
P. 11. syndicate, and -the plans have
been for soma [ime prepared. Tho
expenditure of a sum of money
large enough to build both tlie railway extensions antl provide the required facilities at the termini,
cannot help stimulating trade in
this city And district, and we shall
be very much mistaken if anything
is heard about dull times after the
first of September. We believe
the mayor, under authority from
the city council, has requested Mr.
Homer to ascertain from tho syndicate whether it would not be possible to begin the survey sooner
than the time indicated,. It will
require several weeks for the city
to perfect arrangements for raising
the $37,500 bonus, and it is the
wisli of all good citizens that the
commencement and completion of
the brunch should not be delayed a
singlo day because of any unpre-
paredness upon the part of tho
council. But in any event we have
uot long to wait before active measures will be in operation with the
object of connecting this city by
railway with the C. P. B.
Surrey Roads.
PUBLIC MEETING AT THE TOWN HAIL:
Reported (or llio Columbinn.
The Hon. Juhn Kobson met the
inhabitants cf Surrey by appointment
ut the Municipal Hall, on Saturday,
•Tunc 27th, at 2 o'clock; tha majority
of the people from the several settlements being present, tlie meeting wus
called to ovder, On motion Mr. Thos.
Shannon was requested to act as chairman nnd H. T. Thrift as secretary of
meeting. The chairman introduced
tho Hon. John Robson with a fow
appropriate remarks,
Mr. ttohgon said as ho was iu vory
poor ItRiilth he wns unable to exert
himself in regard to making a speech;
ho expressed his pleasure to soe so
many petiole, und so many now faces
among thom, compared with the numbor ho mer when ho hist had the privilege of coming to Surrey, The hon.
gentleman addressed the meeting at
some length, showing the principle
adopted by tho government in tlie formation of municipalities; that they
surrendered n part of the revenue of
the province tn' the municipality for
the purpose of carrying out local improvements, such as roads and bridges;
further, recognising tho difficulties to
ba encountered in constructing roads,
&c., in thc several municipalities, they
had supplemented said revenue by nn
unconditional grant of 91,000 to ench
corporation, to be expended as thought
beat by tha councils; nrid further, the
government knowing there were very
important works of public utility, the
construction of which waa of prime
importance to the settlers, nnd which
it wus beyond the menus of the corporation to have done, such, for in-,
stance, ns trunk roads, &o., the government had undertaken, leaving to
the municipality,the purely local work
of constructing the branch roads,
There was one such trunk rond in Surrey ,* for thu construction of which
tenders hud been invited lust year,
but .fm; obvious reasons the contract
hud not been let; the governmont Iind
again called for tenders, which wore to
bo In to-day, for the immediate construction of this road, popularly known
as tho Semiahmoo road, and he finally
announced that it was proposed to
expend $2,000 this season in Surrey.
The hon. gentleman's speech waa well
received by the people present.
Tho reeve and several other persons
spoko of the progress of tho municipality in tho pnst, wlmt whs now being
done, nud what might be dono iu the
future. Tho secretary of tho meeting
submitted the following resolution:
"Whereas thore is one through road
botween New Westminster and the
boundary line, in this municipality,
which fully meets nil the requirements
of present trnffic and the public convenience, aud that further expenditure of public money on another
through road to tho boundary lino is
not only unnecessary nnd ill-advised,
but unjust, while there are bo many
others who have no means wliatover of
getting in supplies or of getting produce to market; und whereas tenders
nre now invited for the construction of
a stago rond ori tho line of the old
Scmialunoo trail, said triiil following
no surveyed lino, but menndering
through the unsettled forest, wliere
thoro is no agricultural land, and will
bn of uo actual benefit to tbe people
of Surrey or of British Columbia:
Therefore be it resolved, that tho proposed construction of said road is
viowed with the strongest disapprobation by this meeting, and that the
government is hereby earnestly requested not to place said road under
contract." On motion the resolution
wsb adopted, us follows: yeas-42, nays
8. On motion it was resolved th.it
speakers be limited to 10 minutes.
Oonsiderublo discussion ensued as to
where and what would be best manner
of expending tlio money so as to bu
of the greatest benefit to tho greatest
numbers. On motion it was resolved
that the expenditure bo loft entirely
with the government. Tho hon. provincial secretary said the last resolution was in reality a vote of confidence
in the government, consequently, since
tho matter U left in thc bunds of thu
government, an engineer and government inspector should be eent out as
soon aa possible to examine the different roads, with a view to tbe speedy
expenditure of the appropriation.
On motion it was resolved tbat the
minutes of this meoting bo published
in the British Colombian.
On motion a hearty voto of thanks
was accorded the H n. Mr. Kobson,
and contiuued confluence in the government.
On motion a vote of thanks was
tendered tho •ftlmirmnn lot the very
efficient manner in which he ■ -schnrged
his duties, and the meeting then adjourned. H. T. Tmku-t, Sec.

Aif OiniSDE Opinion.— An American correspondent of the Petaluma
(Cat) Conner haa the following remarks to make about this part of British Columbia: "Persons coming from
Canada and the Isles would be pleased
with the climate ahd very well wit is*
tied with the country generally. Many.
that have Battled here, during the past
twenty years, have comfortable homes
and large ranches free frem debt. The
agricultural settlements will compare
very favorably with those in older settled countries, and, in some respects,
far advanced in the rise of modern improvements. Last summer and fall I
saw tlie farmers using the mower,
horse rake, reaper and binder, and
steam thresher. The tract of land
lying between the Fraser nnd the
boundary line, from ten to fifteen
miles wide, extending from the Gulf
of Georgia seventy-five miles up the
river, is the choicest part' of the province fur farming. Its soil is rich and
aftor being reclaimed, is easily tilled."

THE RIGHTS AHD WRONGS OF THE CUSTOM
There is a wooden bridge over the
Brunette River where the Pitt River
road crosses it, about 2|-'tntles from
this oity. Immediately below this
bridge there is a piece of water that
for many years has been a favorite resort of youthful bathers. Tt is an unfortunate circumstance that this bathing ground is so close to the bridge
and the road, because it has happened
more than once (and attention has
been called to the fact through The
Columbian) that Indies driving over
this bridge hnvo been confronted unexpectedly by humanity clad in the
scanty robe which nature supplies.
On Saturday, the 20th June* the
number of boys nnd young men who
frequented tho Brunette bathing
ground seems to have been unusually
large. Nearly all afternoon, it is
snid, tlio water was kept in perpetual
disturbance, and sometimes as many
tis 20 or 30 young people were indulging in the luxury of a swim at the
same time. It so happened, however,
that Mra. A. M. Herring had invited
some friends to a pic-nic on that
very day, and they had selected a spot
near the Brunette bridge aa their picnic grounds. 'The pic-nic party went
out about 10 a.m., and some of the
swimmers began to arrive hefore noon.
Of course the two shows could not l>e
made to harmonize, and the husbands
of some of the ladies at the pic-nic
entered an action against tho young
men for exposing themselves without
proper attire. The cases created a
a great deal of interest chiefly because
-the proceedings affected so many citizens. For the prosecution nll the barristers iu the eity were retained, and
the defendants were obliged to procure
counsel from Victoria which they did
iu the person of Mr. Theo. Davie; The
cuse was set duwn for 7 o'olock Mob-
day night. Long before that hour
spectator* began assembling at the
court' house," nnd by the time proceedings opened the room wns packed front
end to end, and even outside the doors
and windows eager listeners strained
their ears and. eyes to catch as muoh
as possible. The bench was-wfnpied
by Messrs. Ferris, Pittendrigh, Todd,
McTiernan, and Webster.
Tho first cose called was Wm. Me*
Bride, who pleaded not guilty through
his counsel. Mr. Bole, for the prosecution, briefly stated the case, He
aaid his clients (the ladies) were nt the
bridge for n Very proper and lawful
purpose, nnd while there the defendant committed what, in hia opinion,
was at least a grossly unmanly and
improper act. While one of the
ladies stood with her children on the
bridge, throwing pebbles into the
water, this young man came and undressed himself within 20 feet of her.
He disclaimed Ul wish on the part of
his clients to conduct thia action in a
spirit of persecution or vindicttveness,
They had the greatest respect for the
parents of theso young,men.
Mrs. Herring was first witness.
She said that on the 20th she and
some other ladies went for a private
pic-nic to a place near the Brunette
bridge; they went about 10 a. m.j
about 7:30 p. m. her children were
playing about the bridge ahd she
went to look after them; Mrs. DeBeck
and Mrs, Armstrong followed her;
while standing on the bridge the 3
McBrido boys came to the bridge; slie
knew tho boys were Mi-Bride's, but
did not know one from the other; a
young man with a helmet hat was
with them; one or two of thein began
preparing for a swim; did not take
much notice of thom, ns she was look
iug nfter hor mvn children; one.of the
buys at- least took off his clothes; ui
she was going off the bridge she saw
the young man iu the helmet hat
pushing tho naked boy into the
water; did nut notice any other person
naked; Mrs. Dr. Mclnues came along
nbout that time and she hnd some
conversation with Iier; had no doubt
the three boys were the McBride's.
CrosB-examiued by Mr. Davie Wit nuns
said there were 5 ladies nt 'the (iiu-tiiu,
and several .children; there hnd buon
a number nf boys bathing during the
previous part of tho day; she was on
the bridge about half nu hour; did'
not suppose-the.buys would-.bathe in
her presence; stayed on tiie bridgo
tii wateh her children aud let.-them
play by tho wnter; did not hear any
one ask her to leave the bridge; Willie Jackson did not tell her the boys
were going to .bathe there that day;
saw the wlido of young MuBride's
body.
Mr. C, H. DeBeck M'id ho laid the
information in this ease; his object
waa to prevent a repetition of the
grievance; had lived here about 1)
years, In 'onms-uxiuniuutiuit liv said
lie had no spite ng-iinat thu Mcllride
boys; admitted hu had ordered him
away on the 21ih, and snid he wasn't
fit to live in a hog pen; there was u
better bn thing place just above the mill.
A dispute arose about what tho witnets
said to McBrido on the 24lh, and
Mr. Bute said they weru willing to
admit that he was fit to live in a hog
pen.
Mrs. Annul mug testified thnt shu
was nt the pie-nh;; was ou the bridge
with Mrs H orr iug about 7:30; u»''tie
was bathing at the time; knows all thu
McBride boys (pointed 'out Willii*
McBride in the court); saw bim (Willie) taking oil' liis shirt-and she luft
tho bridge; was sure it whs Wm. McBride;
Mrs. C.-R. DeBeck said she wns nt
the pio-nio; was on tliu l-ridge with
Mrs.' Herring ahd Mrs. Armstrong;
snw Wm. McBride take oil' his uinKr-
shirt and begin unbuttoning his pants;
lelt the bridge in disgust; hu was
about 20 feet away Ht the timo,'
Mrs. T., R, Mclnnes snid she crossed
the bridge twice, and saw Mrs, Herring there, but saw no boys; did not
remember speaking to Mrs, Herring,
This closed the ease for the prosecution. Mr. Davie rose to speak, but
the bench informed him that they Imd
decided to dismiss the case! Mr. Mo-
Coll said this was the first time in his
practice he ever heard ot a cuso dismissed without allowing counsel fur
the prosecution to be heard. He
quoted the law and contended that it
waa a breach of it to expose the person
in any plnce where one could bu seon
from a frequented road.
Mr. Bole also addressed the bench
ns to the facts, nnd contended that a
prima facio case had undoubtedly been
made out, and the defendant should
be called upon for his defense.
Mr. Davie, contra, maintained that
there had been no such thing us exposure of the person within the meaning of the net,
Mr. Ferris said the bench had do-
oidud to dismiss the case; but although they considered the offence
not proven, they were unanimous in
the opinion that defendant had been
guilty of a gross breach of propriety,
and had anted in a most ungentle-
manly way. It was not a proper
place for hathing, and the boys had
no right to strip in the presence of
womon. In dismissing the case,
therefore, they could not allow costs
to defendant,
Mr.. Davio made several fruitless
attempts to address the court, but
Mr, Bole Btood up and'would not
permit him to do bo after judgment had
been given.
Mr. Bole then moved for the trial
of J, S. Clute, jun,, intimating at
the same time that he would ask for
an adjournment until Tuesday morning, as it was now too late to go on.
Mr. Davie objected to an adjournment, unless the bench would engage to give costs in case of dismissal,
The nroso'cutors had engaged every
lawyer in, the oity and forced the
defendants, at great expense, to bring
counsel from Victoria. It would not
be fair tu his clients to detain counsel for another day unless costs
would go to dfls. in case of dismissal.
Mr. Bole said they must stand for
their rights, nnd each case must stand
on its own bottom. It was ridiculous to begin another case at 10 p.
in,, when the witnesses were ladies
and children who were not able tu
stand tho loss of rest. They Were
willing to adjourn to any time that
would suit the convenience of the
dfts.
Mr. Davie would not consent to
an adjournment, and tho bench decided to go on. It was theu after
10 o'clock..
Mr. Bole and Mg. IfcjOoll protested
again that they could not go on at
suoh au hour. If the magistrates
persisted they must be prepared to
take the consequences,'.
The bench consulted again, nnd
atill decided to go on,   It was 10:20.
Counsel for the prosecution then
put in an affidavit Betting forth tho
grounds upon which an adjournment
was nsked, nnd stating that they could
not go on. The bench would not yield,
and as the prosecution had no witnesses ready tlie case against Clute
was dismissed. Counsel gave notice
of appeal in both cascB, and the court
rose at 10:45.,                       -,.-■.

Miss Androws has taught hero for

the deportment or the proficiency of

LanqlbyPraibibSohool.— Themid-
summer examination of the children
attending this school wus held here on
Friday. The examination, was conducted by the teacher, Miss 15. A.
Davidson, Whu seems well qualified for
the position. Those of tho children
who have been under her charge for
the past year-acquitted themselves in
a manner that reflects credit on both
teacher and pupils. Good order and
discipline seemed almost perfect. The
attendance during tho year hiia'not
been satisfactory owing in a groat
measure to the location of the school,
over whicha great deal of contention
has existed for some time, thereby
placing the teacher in a most unpleasant position. The difficulty has, however, been .settled. A new .school is.
about to he built-in u more central
place on the prairie, a building that
will be a credit to the settlement, and
one that will meet the requirements of
nearly tho whole school population of
tho prairie.

!   White and Blaek.
Editor Columbian.—I uotice in Wednesday's paper (June 24th} an.article
headed "Black aud Wliite." Suppose
we cliango it this week to ".White and
Black." The Guardian says the settlers
roundly told him (the provincial secretary) tlint the sums ho wob giving them
were simply what they were entitled to
and they accorded him uo thanks. They
told him they required so much and if he
gavo it to them he was only doing his
duty, but if he decided on refusing the
money they could wait till men were at
the head of affairs who wero guided by
>honesty-and'justice. The Victoria Stan*
durtl goes even farther and .Bays: The
provincial secretary has been airing himself in Westminster district,' but the
feeling is so strong against htm in that
locality and against the government to
which he belongs, that he Is meeting
with anything but encouragement.
Now, sir, allow me to state that I myself wus at the Langley meeting, and I
now openly contradict the statement
both of the Standard and Guardian. I
say that thc people never made use of
such utterances. What the people did
say is this, that they are well pleased
with the preseut government and the
course they arc pursuing. The provincial secretary Baid that Langley at the
last' election gave the preseut government a large vote, and the people said
at;-ttie: next election they (the people)
wdufd give them by far a greater vote.
I have been in this new settlement of
East, Langley for the past two years, and
I ktiow from "experience the feeling of
the people, audi am proud to say that
thc majority of the new settlers are highly in favor of the. present government
aiid the courso they are pursuing. I
have often seen In the Guardian the
expression, "Honest John," meaning the
provincial secretary, but ut the said
meeting was the first time I had the
pleasure- of seeing the gentleman at a
public meeting, and I may conscientiously
say the people ought to be proud of the
name, and glad because they have an
honest, man aud an honest government
to which he belongs. I consider the
meeting a success, considering that it
Was held at a time of the year when the
greatest number of the new settlors ore
away earning a little money to keep
them daring the balance of the season.
It must be said tbat the new settlement
took bnt little or no part iu the proceedings, that being confined altogether to
what Is called Old Langley, but It Is the
intention of the hew settlement of which
I am a member, to invite the hon. the
provincial secretary to their new settlement some time this fall to see for himself the importance of this particular
part of this locality. We are determined to conduct our own affairs in this
new settlement independently of Old
Langley, In regard to roads, I consider
tho government ore doing all that can
be expeoted, and the people In general
nre well satisfied, save one point, and
that is they are going to spend so much
money upon the old telegraph trail from
the township line between townships 11
and 14, whereas direct on the said line
it is Only 3 miles and by the telegraph
trail it is near five miles. What tne
peoplo. wont is the shortest and moat
direct route to the Eraser river, as a
number havo told me already that Westminster is their market, thai they could
not soil- one pound of butter at Fort
Langley, and their object Ib to" get to
the Fraser river by as short a route as
possiblo. But it seems to be the object
of some to try and get the roads to lead
towards Fort Langley. They do not
care how far tlie poor settlers have to
travel as long as they ean accomplish
that poiut. xhey do hot care anything
about the poor-settler north of thst
trait; uo,; ho may du the best ho can, as
long as this point Is accomplished. We
have Heard a great deal about the said
township Hue north of the said trail In
regard to the cost of building it. Since
the meeting thore has been a company
formed and their intention ts to make a
proposition to build the said road for a
certain sum. Those people who talk so
much against the road and who were
never over one chain of It, will he greatly
surprised to find the smalt sum it cau be
built for.—Yours truly,
W. J. Davey.

KWS FROM Ml PARTS Of TM WORLB.
Four Pii-r, June 15, via Straubensle,
June 18.—Two scouts just arrived from
Otter's column, Turtle Lake, roport that
three days ago they came upon the unmistakable trail of Big Bear moving
eastward, 100 miles north of Turtle
Lake. Two dsys previously they surprised a party of six Indians, snd captured their horses and truck. Big Bear s
trail shows that the chief still has about
sixty fodges with him. The scouts
found a brush case, bearing McLeau's
name on. it. Ths was likely left inten*
timinlly, and shows that the prisoners
arc witli the Indians moving eastward.
Big Iteur's name was nlso found written
in Crcc. Col. Otter was encamped st
the southerly end of Turtle take when
the scouts left, aud is probably now
moving hastily northward to come up
with tlie Indians. His transport is gootl,
ami he -should he able to overtake them.

mums, June 27.—There wu a muoh
larger crowd of prominent people at the
farewell reception of Earl Spencer today than wob anticipated, the rooms
being so densely thronged that it was
difficult for those present to move about
with auy degree of comfort. The earl,
iu the presence of the assembled guests,
knighted Secretary Kaye and Commissioner Greene for the part they took in
making the recent visit of the Prince
and Princess of Wales to Ireland a success. Every precaution was takeu to
prevent the invinciblcs from perpetrating outrages, all packages destined for
the castle being carefully examined before1 being conveyed inside the building,
for fear they might contain dynamite.
A large force was stationed in the courtyard and numerous detectives iu full dress
suits mingled with the crowd. The
streets through which Karl Spencer will
have to pass iu going to the railway
station en route to London were lined
with soldiers. The earl is about starting on his homeward journey and the
snn Is shining brightly. '
It is now pretty well understood to be
a dangerous practice to attempt to palm
off worthless imitations of the "Myrtle
Navy" tobacco for the genuine article.
In former years that practice was the
cause of much annoyance, and Messrs.
Tuckett ft Son were compelled to resort
to the law courts to put a stop to it,
Though they have not met with any
cases of the kind lately, it is always a

London, June 29.—At a meeting of
the Midlothian Liberal association to-day
the chairman read a letter from Glad-
atone expressing his deep and grateful
sense of the fidelity of the Liberal majority of 1880 in dealing with difficulties
almost unexampled. He refrains from
criticizing the Conservative cabinet, feeling it his duty to support and assist them
in doing right. He says he is confident
tbat the presence bf Liberals in parliament will be competent to exercise necessary vigilance. He asks Midlothian to
assist him In using his strongest and
must sedulous efforts iu tbe Interest of
the Liberal party. Gladstone said he
did not think he should again ask to be
returned to parliament, but that events
have transpired which have rendered it
necessary that he should not impair the
unity and efficiency of the party, This
is tantamount to a declaration that he
will remain leader of the Liberals. A
resolution expressing hearty confidence'
in Mr. Gladstone was afterwards adopted.
Montreal, Que., June 29.—News was

Prom Ilie Toronto Globe,
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground Ib the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being tbe location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters ou the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchaso proves
beyond question that the publio approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do tbe Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things, It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, tho stock ncing
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with tbe business. About ten
years go John Wesley, tho present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, tlie
manager of the manufacturing department; and \V. S. Kussell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business Iiub
been booming, A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partuer. Piano*
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about .200 organs and SO
pianos per month, Theso are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches iu Loudon antl Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide ana Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia,
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand, Tlie former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all Bides, presents a handsome appearanco, and Ib
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing witli oil for hours. Tho touch is
quick nnd easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance tbey are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere, lhey are
manufactured in all styles, and at sll
prices, ranging from 950 to §1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pcvilion.
The largest organ whicli the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
Sresent at the Dominion Exhibition,
Lontrcal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to bo
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to tbe
Sarlor favorite. The casci show won-
erfnl variety. Many of theso are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
Thi case which secured for the Company
n prize at tlie Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, ami
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design nud artis
tic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and stylo of the casos.

A CONDENSED ANSWER FOR THE STUDY OF
TNE PEOPLE.
I wish to draw tho attention of my
fellow-citizens to the poisonous character of many of the articles used in
adulterating intoxicating liquors. To
prevent being misunderstood by my
junior readers I will define a few of
the termB used: "Acrid," signifying
sharp and harsh, or biting to the sense
of taste, as smart weed; "astringent,"
that which draws together, contracts,
compresses, wrinkles, es alum; "narcotic," stupefying, deadening, sleep
producing, as opium; "pungont," biting, stinging, as pepper or mustard;
"tetanic," affecting the nerves, und
through them the muscles, causing
spasmodic action, us strychnine. In
describing the following drugs space
will only allow me to givo the main
points of special interest under each;
but sufficient, I hope, to induce further
investigation. The list is not complete: tliere are others on which I cannot now lay my hands. Tho following
contains some uf the properties of the
articles named and their special oH'octa
on the living body.
1. Sweet spirits of nitre is comuosod
of one volume of hyponitrous ether,
and four parts of alcohol, and generally
an impurity called eldehyd. It iB a
stimulant, allays spasms, und promotes
the action of the kidneys. When the
preparation becomes old, nitrous acid
is formed, and its internal use will be
followed by gripings and pain in the
stomach. When inhaled it iB n narcotic
poison, Ita accidental inhalation during sleep has caused death.
2. Alum is an astringent, and is
iised iu dyeing, in cases of bleeding,
nnd in various immoderate secretions.
The unpleasant sensation produced by
what boys call "puckering" of the
mucous coat of tho mouth occasions n
strong desire for more liquor which
only adds fuel to the fire.
3. Green vitriol in even very small
quantities causeB more ov less constipation. Larger amounts cause pain,
heat, and uneasiness nt the pit of the
Btomach. Taken in excess it is an irritant poison.
4. Chloride of sodium, or common
salt, is used to produce thirst, and to
prevent beer deficient in hyps and' malt
from souring.
5. Logwood is much used in dyeing
and in making of inks. It is used in
in intoxicants for its coloring matter,
bitterness, and ostringency,
C. Quassia is intensely bitter, nnd
will preserve animal matter from decay. I have n piece that I cut from
the. shrub in the torrid zone many
years ngu, and still it seems as bitter
as ever. It is used as a vory cheap
substitute for hops. Tt is considered
an excellent fly poison,
7. Aloes is an active purgative drug,
specially affecting the muscular coat of
tho large intcBtinea, and in consequence of producing heat and irritation
of the rectum has a"strong tendency tu
seriously aggravate the piles,
8, Opium is a narcotic stimulant,
and in large doses a certain poison. It
produces general excitement of tho
whole system and especially uf the
brain. Constipation is induced; tho
mucus secretions become thickened
and even suspended; the urinary and
biliary secretions may bo greatly impeded; though the secretions* through
the skin may bo increased. Its continued use causes idiocy and death.
0. Rh'atarry iB a powerful astringent,
., uud is used in dangerous hemorrhages,
and to redden and solidify spongy and
!   bleeding gums.   It is uaed in liquors
for its coloring matter nnd astringency,
10. Kerosene is a well known natural combustible liquid, causing a prickling and burning sensation when applied to thc skin. It is designed to
give a fictitious strength to liquor, nnd
to produce a burning craving for more.
11. drains of paradise is a species of
popper, extremely hot and pungent.
It is largely used tu givo apparent
strength to bid gin, and to increase
the pungency of fermented nnd spirituous liquors. It is liko applying fire tn
the brain. Iu England bruwurs and
dealers nre prohibited, under heavy
penalty, fr«m even having it in their
. possession.
12. Oil of vitriol generally contains
arsenic, lead, and tin as impurities. In
its undiluted state it ia exceedingly
corrosive, charring all organic substances.
13. White lend, red lead, ascetnto
nr sugar of lead. Thb latter in said to
be much used iu cider. Lend is a poison, and is apt to produce constipation,
loss of appetite, indigestion, griping
pains, jaundice, umatintion, and feeble,
irregular pulse, often reduced to 40 or
45 per minute; crumps, paralysis of
of lhe nerves of sensation, and sometimes furious delirium, convulsions
and denth.
14. Henbane is a powerful narcotic,
and dangerously poisonous. It causes
deranged vision, giddiness, headache,
intestinal pain and purging, a disposition to sleep or furious delirium,
and,'in fatal cases, convulsions, paralysis, nud death.
15. Nux Vomica is an energetic pulsus), exerting its influence chiefly upon
thu bruin and spinal cord and the system of nerves immediately connected
therewith, producing violont tetanic
convulsions, with asphyxia and death.
A small amount causes increased sensibility, twitching of tho munclcs, rcat-
leBKiu'sa, auxioty, etc.
Hi. Strychnine acts chiefly if not
solely by stimulating the spinal chord
and mcdulla-nblongata, or tho upper
enlarged portion of the spinal curd at
the* baso of tlie brain; in other respects
its action resembles that of nux vomica, with tho exception that strychnine
. specially excites tho venereal appetite;
hence, manufacturing victims fm- her
whose feet go down to denth and
whose steps take hold on hell,
17. Oacculus Indicus is very hitler
nnd exceedingly poisunoua, alarmingly
ii fleeting the brain and oven paralyzing
the willpower, causing giddiness, irritation of the stomach, staggering, convulsions, and a disposition to steep, it.
is used in place of hops, to render beer
moro intoxicating and to kill lice. Ten
grains of the drug killed a large dog,
and tho tincture applied to the scalp
proved fatal to a child 0 years of age,
18. Tobscco is u powerful acro-nar-
cotic poison. The infusion is apt to
affect thu heart, causing feebleness of
pulse, fluttering of the heart, faint-
ness, alarm, etc.; and its smoke is apt
to aot on the bruin, producing nausea
and vomiting, followed by drowsiness.
Om drop of the empyrouumtie oil
killed a cat, and two drops a dug in
fiv« or six minutes, This oil may he
obtained from the old pipe of an in-
vetentte smoker.
19. Arsenic is a most violent poison;
one at two grains taken at onco may
prove fatal. In poisonous dmos it
causes nausea, vomiting, burning, pain
of the throat and siomnoh, soon extending over the whole abdomen, pain
fully affecting all the vital functions,
and death is generally ushered in by
tremblings, cramps and delirium.
The above are deserving of the must
earnest and thorough study by aU
who wish well tu themselves and their
race. My next will be. au answer to
the question—Is there any known
physiological reason why alcohol in
any form should be prescribed by
either thn physician or the surgeon 1

Gordon's Bounties.
One cold day in . January a poor
Bailor was standing costless outside a
lodging-house near the pier at Graves-
end. He had not only spent nll his
money, but had parted with his coat.
Gordon saw him shriveled with tho
wind, and found on inquiry that he
was waiting for a ship to go to sea
again, What arrangement ho made
with the man no uno knows, but an
eye-witness Baw Gordon take off his
own coat, place it on the Bailor, and
walk back tu the fort house in his
shirt-sleeves. Another time when thc
winter coals were being delivered at
the fort house, Gordon noticed that
one uf tho liioii was very ill-clad. His
bouts woro ragged nnd his trousers
thin and tattered. Thu man was wet
and grimy, and altogether an evil cave.
Gordon rigged him out, and his kindness wub not misplaced, fur when the
next coal delivery took place Gordon
noticed that the bouts and the trousers
were both being worn, and made the
remark: "I am pleased to seo that you
are wearing tho clothes I gave you and
have notsoid them."
Some poople seem to think that tho
fact uf Gordon's bounties occasionally
benefiting the ungrateful and the unfit
ja n reflection un his acuteiiess and hia
common sense. Su far from this assumption being juBtitied, it appears
that Gordon deliberately incurred the
danger of being deceived for the chance
of a thrust at real distress. Onco-when
walking through the hospital wardB
une hot summer's day, Gordon noticed
a sick man tortured by fliesjighting on
hia face. Saying nothing, he went out
and bought a fan, which he gavo to
the nurso for the siok man, "that he
may get a little rest." That sick man
stilt posBesBOB tho fan whicli Gordon
obtained for him; and he prises it
dearly.- Pall Mall Gazette,
Purification of Drinking Water
The average healthy adult man takes
into his system four and a half pounds
of water daily, and with it too uften
a dangeroua quantity of foreign matter
and disease-producing germs. In very
mauy homes during the summer
months, water that otherwise wuuld
nauseate the drinker, is made cold by
ice, and then is hastily swallowed, the
coldness hiding its offensiveuess. Unfortunately fur the health uf the consumer, the addition of ice doos not
render the impurities in water innocuous, but often adds to it its owu contribution of disease germs. The unly
aafe-guard to the consumer is in giving
his personal attention tu the filtration
uf the water used in his household.
Water slowly porcolated through
crushed vegetable charcoal will escape
from it not only cleansed of particles
held in suspension, but nlso of organic
and other matter. Tho cheapness of
charcoal ia such that it is obtainable
by all clauses, and when soiled, a fresh
quantity can be substituted at trifling
cost. The most effective filtration is
obtained by phicinu crushed charcoal
iu an earthen vessel, so arranged nn to
compel the alow passage of tho water
through it, as all efforts at rapid filtration have proved inefficient. Only
wooden spigots should be used in
drawing off the wntcr. A reservoir
fur the filtered wator with a separate
ieo-chamber, will permit the water to
bo sufficiently chilled nnd keep all ice
impurities out. Such a contrivance
requires but very little ruom, is easily
cleaned, the coal renewed, and Ib efficient in freeing wator from impurities.

Klers Trial.
Battlkfoiu), N. W. T., Juno 15.—
In. the investigation which has beeu
going uu here with reference to the
murder of Bernard Fremont, the Swiss
farmer killed early in the outbreak,
twu Indians have sworn that they
were acting under Kiel's instructions
when the murder occurred. On Saturday Poundmaker acknowledged the
receipt uf four letters from Riel, one
of which, ho said, he hud left iu his
tent nenr his reserve, A party of
police, taking with them Pound milker's
brother-in-law, tho renegade wliite
Jefferson, wore Bent at unco to louk
fur it. They returned to-day, having
fuund the letter where Poundmnker
said ho had left it. It will, nu doubt,
be a very important document at Kiel's
trial. It is dated from Fish creek,
the day after Gun. Middleton's tight
there, and states that Riel had killed
300 police. It then orders Pound-
maker, if Battlefurd has nut already
been captured, to capture it at once
nud kill nll the white people there.
Thu tetter then goes un to sny that
when thnt hns been done, Riol will
attack and destroy the volunteers and
join Poundmaker at Battleford. Tho
letter is signed by Riel himself.

TO THE MEMUEIIH OV THE BoAllI) OF Dl-
KECToiw-Geutlomon:
I have ttie honor lo make the foi lowlnt

Two of them oame In In a dying condition.
The Hospital has undergone a good deal
of repairing during tlio yonr. Tha wnter
pipes havo boon fixed; outhouses have
been moved, und one built for the reception of tho dond until burial. Whitewashing and papering has been done, mnking
the place look bright and cheerful,
I hnve to thank a number nf friends of
the Institution for contributions of pictures, texts, and reading matter of every
description und In Inrgo quantities, Also
for the supply of old washed linen whieh
Is particularly useful. Also, I have to
thank tho steward, Mr, Ohnrlos Digby, for
the pains ho has taken In keuplng the
wards clean and comfortable: and, nlso,
for his kindness nnd attention to tho sick.
Beforo closing my report I wish tosug-
gest that If a fovor wurd, i. e„ to admit typhoid fever, could bo opened, It would (tad
.-very materially to the usefulness of the
Institution. I think thnt this might be
done without muoh expense by attaching
threo or four rooms fo tho building for the
use of tho steward und tils family nnd using the wards up stairs for fever cases,
f alao wish to bring before your notice
