The jclieme of constructing a
bridge over the English Oatinnel hu
just keen completed. It his keen
worked out ky the Oreusot engineers
and M. Horsent, ex-president of the
society of civil engineers. The process of metallurgy makes the construction possible of an immense
bridge, thirty kilometres long, with
a platform nt tha height of fifty mp-
ters above the sea it fuil'liile, iiid
supported ky piles at distances of
BOO meters. The height allowed
the bridge over the channel would
allow large steamers and sailing vessels to pass freely. It would support four railway lines, besides a
road for carriages and footpaths.
This, will be satisfactory for these
who dread sea-sickness. The only
trouble left them will be that of
choosing their mode of locomotion—
whether by railway carriage; omnibus, cab or velocipede, Places of
refuge, watch-houses and alarm bells
will he placed an each pile, with a
powerful light.
The authors of this gigantic scheme
believe that the foundations maybe
constructed by means of compressed-
air diving-bells, the depth of the
strait between Oalais and Dover not
being, on an average, more than
from twenty-five to thirty-nine meters, and in few places exceeding
fifty meters. The bridge will cost
800,000,000 francs, its metallic
weight will amount to 2,000,000
tons and it might be constructed in
six years. The scheme will shortly
ke submitted for examination to an
international technical committee.
When this examination has been
completed the channel bridge society
will apply for a concession to the
French and English governments,
from which it will ask for no subsidy.
Under these conditions the concession might he easily grfrited^ .and
the works immediately begun. In
a few years the commerce of the
two nations would benefit from the
simplification introduced into their
relations ky the exeoution of a work
which might be considered as one of
the most important of the century.

PrlHM Bismarck'. Serap*>BMk(
Prince Bismarck refers to the
words of the press as "nothing but
printer's ink spread on paper." But
no man reads the papers more diligently than he. Besides personally
reading every day a dosen or more
of the leading journals from various
European capitals, he keeps a staff
of from four to six clerks constantly
at work, like exchange editors in a
newspaper office, scanning the columns of hundreds, and perhaps
thousands, of papers from all parts
of the world, and clipping out every
item that ean possibly be of interest
to him. These clippings, with the
names and dates of the papers from
whioh they are taken, are carefully
classified and indexed, and pasted
In enormous scrap-books. These
volumes form a conspicuous feature
in the Chancellor's private library.
There is one lettered on the baok
"Socialism," another "France—Military," another "France—Civil," another "Russia," another "Oultuk
ampt,"and soon. Each volume is
subdivided into chapters, and all so
carefully indexed that the statesman
can in a moment turn to what has
been said by any particular paper
on any particular subject.
This vast oncyclodedia is made
use of in many ways. A gentleman
from Chicago a few years ago called
on Prince Bismarck, armed with a
noto of introduction from the Gorman minister at Washington. The
prince received him cordially, and
after a few general remarks, said:
"I sea thnt your Chicago papers tire
pitching into me on tho pork question." And ho went on to quote
the exaot language the various papers had used, and replied to their
arguments. "He told me," said tin-
gentleman, "more about the Uhicuyn
papers and the pork-packinit industries than I knew myself, though I
have lived there all my life. And
before I left, in came Congressman
—, from California, and tho prince
nt once turned on him with a lot nf
talk about tho silver question, nnil
what the Piicifiti coast newspapi-rs
woro saying about it.—Adolf lions-
saye in Chicago Tribune.
There nre between 1,600 and
2,000 ladies intho Northwest to-day
who are interested in one way or
another in ranch and stock property.
Many of them acknowledge their
brands over their own names, while
others are interested in stook running under other names, and in
which thoy aro silent partners.

IBE DOMIOIOX LOAN.
Lornios, June 20. - The Canadian
Gazette remarks that the success of the
Dominion loan is all the more noticeable because the death of the emperor
occurred just when it was issued, while
the Canadian Paoific loan had probably
absorbed in advance some ofthe money
available.

IHE BEFUBUCAN CONVENTION.
Chicaoo, June 21.—The convention
was called to ordor at 10:5 this morning. Tho first thing Chairman Estee
called for waa the roll for naming national committee men. When this had
been concluded it was announoed that
tha committee on resolutions was ready
to report, and McKiuley, of Ohio,
chairman, stepped to the platform
amid great cheering and commenced
reading. The delegates rose to their
feet and cheered to the echo. The
protection sentiment uf the platform
says the Democrats support the interests ol Europo, while the Republicans
support the interests of America. This
was greeted with a storm of applause.
The platform denounces the Mills bill,
and condemns the removing of the tariff on wool, and favors tho entire repeal
of unnecessary revenue which would
reduce the surplus. It denies that the
democrats have restored one acre of
land to the republic, and it denounces
polygamy ana favors the reduction of
postal rates to one eent per ounce, and
the immediate admission of south Dakota to statehood. The fishory treaty ia
roundly denounced, and congress is
urged not tn pass the froe
ship bill. The civil serrice plank
is the same as that of 1884.
The platform concludes by asking
workmen to join the republicans. On
motion of Maryland the platform was
unanimously adopted. The chairman
then stated that the next ordor of
business wss the presentation of names
of candidates for president.   The first
frresented wss that of Joseph R. Haw*
ey, of Connecticut, by Warnor, of tha
same state. Leonard Swctt, of Illinois,
who Humiliated Lincoln, followod with
the name of W. T. Oresham, whioh
was received with prolonged cheering,
mostly from the galleries. In his
speech Swett mentioned Conkling's
name, at which tlm convention
rose and Ihe npplauso wns deafening.
Swirtt fiuishod mnid prolonged cheering. Davis, if Minnesota, trii.nndi'il
tin- nomination with iniirkuil eloquence.
Leach, of MUnis-rippi, aimi sooiindetl
tho nomination. Whilo hu u-hb sperrlt-
iii.' miiii.-iiih! in tlio gallery shouted
"Bluino; Jaiiios O Blaine I" The
magnetic nnmo of Blaine acted like n
eleotrio shock on tho vast assemblii)*e,
and tho plumed knight was cheered
lime and again. When order wss restored Leach said-that if Harriaon is
nominated he will be heartily supported by Oresham'a friends, hector, of
Texas, and McColl, of Massachusetts,
next seconded lln nomination of
(.rodhiitn. McOall received liberal
applause when he alntod tlmt Ore.limn
wan strung in the hearts of tlio peoplo.
When the afternoon session of the convention Wu opened, at 3:06, a new
feature was noticed. It wss the display uf campaign handkerchiefs marked
"Protection for American industries."
They were to be seen in all parts of the
building. Oollinger, of New Hampshire, was the nest to second the nomination of Harriaon. Much amusement
wu caused by some one, who evidently thought the speaker's name waa Gallagher, shouting, " Let her go, Oslls-
?;her," which was taken up, and lasted
or a few seconds. Oollinger made
roferenoo to Blaine, and again the convention hall was the scone of great tumult, the delegates cheering and yelling until the noise was deafening,
Iowa was reaehed, and Hepburn rose
nnd placed Allison in nomination. His
speech evoked frequent outbursts of
applause. Maryland, Massachusetts
and several of the territories seconded
the nomination.
POSSIBLE CANDIDATES.
Chicaoo, June 21.—The excessive
heat of the past few days continues, and
the thermometer this morning remains
90°. Everything and everybody wean
a wilting appearance, still crowds of
sweltering humanity are to be aeen
thia murning moving here and there
discussing the happenings of the morning in convention hall. It ia the general opinion that the. Depew boom haa
'lost itself. The eloquent New Yorker's
friends are fast deserting him and enrolling themselves under standards of
other candidates. Sherman's followers
are undivided this morning, but his
nomination is not looked upon as a
possibility. Alger tnd Allison are not
much feared. Gresham and Harrison are both strong this morning and both stand even chances
of being the convention's choice
Very few are willing to predict Harrison's ultimate success, and yet to
those who see how this whole problem
is working itself out, it is more than
likely that he will come out ahead.
Congressman Steele of Indiana, who'
is a delegate, says that Harrison is absolutely sure of 150 votes. " It Hens
to be settled," said he, " that Uie candidate shall come from the west or
Harrison holds the key. to the situation." Conferences Iiavebeenin progress
between the Harrison ahd Depew men,
but they have not amounted to anything. The feeling among the grangers againat Depew is still strong. Like
a huge thunder bolt hanging overhead,
ready to fall, is the strong Blaine feeling. All eyes are carefully watching
it, and ita eventual fall at the proper
moment appears to be inevitable.
THIS AFTISirOOS'S DISPAT0H1S.

FRENCH CORRESPONDENTS EXPELLED FROH

agitated to-day over the expulsion from
Berlin of Depuyverdler, correspondent

from Sau llcmo at the time of Frederick's
visit to the palace, which, it ia alleged,
contains statements reflecting upon the
present German emperor. The Svene-
mrnt and Intransigent demands that tha
French government make reprisals.

It is amusing to notice the cool i
■ cheek sometimet difeplayed by American papehk'    Tbo following we
take from a Chicago exchange of a
recent date:    "Oanada is the home
of the American boodler, whero he
can "sit under his own vine and lig
tree and none oau make him afraid.'
And yet Canadians are sticklers on
fincpoints of law.    Wo notice recently that a woman wassent to the
peniteiitiary for  stealing an   umbrella."   The thrust at Oanada for
harboring boodlers comes with very
poor grace from an American paper,
when it is considered that il is tho
Americans themselves   who  stand
principally in the way of a satisfactory extradition   treaty   being  arranged between the Dominion and
the United States.    Canada is willing and anxious for such a treaty,
but a fair basis cannot be reached,
for the reason that Uncle Sam wunta
to protect his fenians, dynamiters
and anarchists from  justice  when
they commit depredations outside of
the states.    The reason for this undue  tenderness  on the part of the
long-headed paternal government of
the big republic is, probably, that a
great  many   of   these   incendiary
characters have a specific value as
voters, and, by becoming a party to
a fair and just extradition  treaty,
the governing party of the day would
alienate a vast aggregate support at
the polls.   And here tve have  another argument ih favor (!)*of party
government   Our Amerioan friends,
though, occasionally get > a -taste of
their own medicino, and  the   viper
they are nourishing sometimes Mings
very near home, as witness the famous Haymarket massacre of Chicago,
which is still fresh in the memories
of everyone, us   well as anarchists
plottings  all over the states.   The
people of Chicago and the judiciury
deserve credit for the prompt and
efficient measures which they took
to stamp out anarchy in that city,
but it must have quite a hold there
yet, when it is such a strong political factor that the fear waa expressed
in a Chicago journal recently that
the  anarchists   might  succeed  in
electing their nominee for supreme
court judge (!) and defeating the
party of law and order.   It is to be
feared tbat such a state of things,
together with the hold  that anarchists, fenians, and dynamiters havo
throughout    the    United    States
generally, is the result of too much
encouragement being extended these
people and too much lenity shown
them in the past, on account of their
possession  of  the almighty voting
qualification.   In the matter of the
administration of justice generally,
it is very foolish for any American
paper to call such attention to the
subject as might provoke an institution  of  comparisons  between the
criminal    courts,     at    least,    of
the   United   States  and   Canada.
Such a comparison would inevitably
redound to the credit of the Dominion, for bur Amerioan cousins, while
beating us in some things, perhaps,
have not been particularly felicitous
in their criminal court experience,
either as regards the respect shown
to the laws or the manner of enforcing them.
It has been and is the fortune or
misfortune of British Columbia that
on the line of her great highways
the passing traveller, while regaled
and delighted with the most charming, and at times the grandest, scenery in the world, can form but a very
meagre estimate of the real wealth
and resources of the country through
which he is passing; and the country
hu, therefore, suffered, and Continues to suffer from the premature
and ill-considered expressions proceeding from the hasty judgment of
purblind egotists who have mode a
flying trip through the province,
partly in tha night, and with their
vision at best limited to a fow fleeting Batches caught at random from
a Pullman coach or the windows of
a steamer's eabin. If any one were
really desirous of writing the truth,
and as nearly as possible tho whole
truth, about a country with which
he was entirely unacquainted, he
would not be content that his investigations should be limited to a
narrow trail through the country
and confined to a few days in
point of time. But with some
writers who attempt to give a sketch
of Brltlih Columbia, telling the
truth, or indeed giving any exact in-
for'Aiation of any sort, would appear
ta ba a secondary and incidental
consideration.1 They had time and
means to enable them to make a
flying trip through tbe country, and
if they had been content to have
been ravished by the unrivalled
soeneryand invigorated hythe oozone
of the mountains and the sea breezes
of the coest, all would have been
well; on tome future occasion they
might have returned and learned
something about the country. But
no; they mtllt needs write; and, liko
the correspondent of thi  Farmer's
Adman* (htttloti, On**)-rehrre<1 to
in yesterday* OotoMBfA!-, while
succeeding iu concocting quite a
readable ami entertaining sketch for
the magesine and newspaper reader,
by reason of their quiWWitural und
excusable iffnorance, the attiole is of
very little value so far/ ns conveying
accurate information is concerned,
if, indeedfit- does not bristle with
misrepresentations.  • Such   writers
nre  often   more credited than tbey
deserve, and by this means much injury may 1« done the country whicli
is 'unfttfftunate   enough   to lrolroivn
notice at thoir hands.     Uritish Columbia is yet to .a great   erciept fa
''diamond in the rough," but.it isia
very rich gem for ull that, and will
repay many fold capital   and   labor
expended in developing its numerous
and varied resources.   Capital, more
than labor is, perhaps, required   at
prosent, and there is  ovory   indication that it will bo forthcoming, for
a more promising field, for   investment, with a guarantee for swift, unci
suro returns, does not exist.   More
especially is capital beiug  directed
just at present to our  magnificent
lumbering resources, which, with the
dissipation of tho erroneous idea that
largo   sea-going   vo3sols   could not
safely navigate the sand-heads, are
receiving an impetus to  their  development by means of new capital
und enterprise that promises to raise
this industry in the near  future to
one   of  the most important in the
Dominion, both as regards labor employed and the extent and rcproduc-
tivoness   of  its  operations.     Our
mines, too, are attracting more attention than ever, and are only just
beginning to be opened up.   British
Columbia has always been noted for
its richness in the precious metals,
but these, owing to the lack  of  facilities ahd difficulties of access, have
not been worked heretofore  to  advantage.   Quartz milling, yet in its
inception, but which is now rendered
practicable by the opening up of'the
country by the  0. P. R. and other
progressing; and projected railways,
promises very soon to develope bonanzas of untold wealth in many sections of the province.   Besides the
precious   metals,  coal and iron are
constantly being discovered in new
localities, and in addition to  those
already existing and projected, coal
mines and smelting works will soon
he operated at different points.    It
is hardly necessary to  dwell upon
the well known wealth of our river
fisheries, nor to mention the almost
undeveloped resources of  our rich
and extensive sea fisheries.   It is in
the matter of agricultural capabilities, perhaps, that British Columbia
is most frequently libelled   by   the
uninformed  and  the   unthinking.
British Columbia is not, and she can
well afford not to be,  with  all her
other rich and varied resources, preeminently an agricultural  country;
but in this connection the immense
size of the country (area 341,305
square miles) rnunt be  takon   into
account, and it will be  seen  that,
though     perhaps     proportionately
small, the farming and grazing lands
of British Columbia are still extensive.    Vast   tracts   in   the   upper
country are and bave long been unequalled as grazing grounds for cattle,   sheep   und horses, as has been
abundantly demonstrated by scoros
of successful stock-raisers, nnd by tho
fact that the beef, mutton and wool
and the horses of that section have
become famous and nre sought after.
Large quantities of grain nnd considerable fruit and vegetables have
also beon raised, and with the means
of   easy   and   universal   irrigation
(where necessary) which the artesian
wells, at present being assisted   by
the provincial government, will   afford,   a  large  extent  of  country
hitherto known as  the   "dry-belt"
will become a garden.   Coming   to
tbe   farming  lands  of   the lower
Fraser, a description which appeared in the Columbian on the Ilth of
this month of the Delta municipality could very fairly be applied to a
dozen agricultural districts within
40 or 50 miles of this city, comprising many thousands of acres, which
rival  in  the  quantity and quality
und   variety  of  their products the
best  farming  lands anywhere, aud
which constitute the garden of   the
provinco.   Lack of  space prevents
us going more into details at present, but we shall refer to the subject again.

The ouly beauties she possessed were on

I had been trainedbyaverystcrn,strict,
conscientious mother, but I was a hardy
plant, rebounding after every Bhock; misfortune could not daunt, though discipline tamed me, I fancied, alasl that I
must go through the same routine with
this delicate creature; as one day when
iho had displeased me exceedingly hy repeating an offense, I was determined to

"Now, my daughter, to punish yon, and
(.how yoa how very, very naughty you
nave been, I shall not kiss you tonight."
She stood looking at me, astonishment
personified, with her mournful eyes wide
liprrn—I suppose she had' forgotten her
Jrnlsconduct till then, aud I left her with
Big team dropping down her cheeks and
ier little red lips quivering.
Presently I was sent for.   "Oh, mam-

ier voico trembling; and she held out her
ittle hands.
Now oame the struggle between love and-,

hilil; and I remembered how I had often
hanked my mother since for her straight-
orward course. ■
I knelt by the bedside. "Mother can't
Liss you, Ellen," I whispered, though
|jrery word choked me. Her hand touched
line; it was very hot, hut I attributed'it
i her excitement. She turned her little
Brritrvhig face to the wall; Iblamcdmy- ■

luppressed sobs, and crying, "Mother

I Ellon did not know me. She was sitting
,, crimsoned from forehead to throat;
er eyes so bright that I almost drew
tick aghast at their glances.
From that night a raging fever drank
.i her life; and what think you wns the
feasant plaint that poured into myau-
irishcd heart!

A Fair Specimen.
Mr. J. 0. Henderson, of Chilliwhack, who arrived in town to-day on
the stoamer Irving, left a specimen of
oats, from his farm at Chilliwhack, in
our office. Mr. Henderson pulled this
bunch at random, and it speaks very
well for the prospective harvest this
fall. The sample shows eight succulent stalks about four feet high, just
heading out out with plump milky
oats, and the luxuriant greenness of
of stalk and leaf testify to the well
known richness of the soil of thii
famous agricultural district.

The improvements commenced some
time ago on Findlsy, Durham & Bro-
die's cannery, on Deas island, have
beon completed and tho cannery is
now in thorough condition for active
operations. The new whatf and buildings give facilities for a largely increased daily puck. The firm have over
7000 cans ready for use and everything*
else is in order, waiting the Buckeye
run. Somu trouble lias boon occasioned the Indians and Chinamen camped
round tho cannery by the high tides.
In some esses they were flooded out
and had rather a miserable time for a
few days.

Correction.
In yesterday's issue we stated Mr.
H. V. Edmonds had offered to build a
school in Vanoouver, on the south side
of False Creek, and that the council
had accepted the offer. Mr. Edmonda
did not promise to build the school,
but presented the city with the lot on
which it will be built. It will be remembered that a few montha ago Mr.
Edmonds presented the people of Sapperton with the lot on whioh the Sapperton school is being built. Had it
not been for thia generosity Sapperton
would have experienced much more
difficulty in obtaining the required
school.

The entertainment waa one of the
best we have ever attended. As a
narrator of Scottish story and dialogue
and a singer of Scottish songs, Mr.
Bainsfather is without an equal. He
haa a fino voice, and a fino presence,
and shows refinement, good taste and
much dramatic power. Miss Etta
Bainsfuther has a magnificent soprano
voice of rare quality, and had ample
scope in the over popular and charming Scottish ballads on the programme.
The young membera of the family
play, sing, and dance admirably. The
Highland Ding was a pleasing and

In connection with the question as

government are to provide a garrison
for Esquimalt, the authorities at tbe
militia department ny tbey bave. had
no intimation ol the intention of tho
Britlah government to send troops,
from Halifax to the eastern eoasf
Hueh reticence is preserved on the
subject It is to a certain extent understood, however, that in return for
Oreat Britain supplying armament for
Ihe forts both at Esquimalt and Victoria, Canada* will supply garrisons.
It is thouuht this mstter will be fully
enquired into by the military commission to meet shortly.

The ship Camana reached New Westminster lust Monday to load lumber
at the Royal City Planing Mills. Her
appearance was hailed with delight hy
the citizens of that royal burg. When
it became known that the ship was
in the river the city at onco put
on its best holiday appearance.
Large crowds visited the ship and
the mills during the afternoon; It
is hoped the veuel is but the
harbinger of many yet to follow her,
and that Westminster will become as
famous for her lumber shipments as
ahe ia now for her fisheries. Every
credit is due Mr. John Hendry, of the
Royal City Planing Mills, for the energy, pluck and perseverance displayed
by him in connection with the appearance of the Camana in the Fraser
river,—Times. ,
A Midnight Adventure.
A fow nights ago Constable Smith,
our worthy look-up keeper, while making a midnight tour of the swamp, on
the lookout for law-breakers, saw an
old klootchman wending her way down
one of the streets. The night was
dark and the constable, thinking to
head her off as she turned into a side
street, attempted to make his way
across a vacant lot. Tho attempt,
however, was not successful, for the
moment he left the roadway he stepped into six feet of water. A yell of
surprise and rage rose from the constable's lips as he reached the surface,
and a very questionable Mowing on
tho beautiful eyea of the onchnnting
klootchman notified residents in the
vicinity of the swamp that something
unusual had occurred. The old
klootchman hearing the aplssh and the
accompanying yells returned to the
spot where Constable Smith had disappeared, and there discovered her
pursuer vainly endeavoring to climb
on to the roadway again. The klootchman waa strong, and, though the constable is no feather-weight, ahe landed
him as easily as an export fisherman
would land Srthreeipound trout. After
a most pathetic parting with the dear
old klootchman the constable made
hia way home, fully determined to
make no short outs over vacant lots
until the Fraser river has reached its
lowest summer level.

A -mulpegger Wanted.
A few days ago a well-known boot
and shoe traveller arrived from Winnipeg and opened his samplos at tho
Colonial Hotel. Constable Carty,
whose duty itiia to, collect the $2.50
tax from commercial travellers, called
on tho Winnipoggor and requested him
to pay the license. The truthful Mani-
toban deniod hia name and business,
deolared ho waa on a pleasure tour, and
waxed indignant at the idea of associating his name with a drummer. Tho
constable was not convinced, aud lm
made further enquiries, which resulted
in his discovering that the man from
the prairies wss not particularly addicted to telling the truth. The consequence was the Winnipegger received
another visit and thii time the constable was horrified at the brazen front
displayed, and the cool and eaay manner In which the traveller mutilated
the truth. Constable Carty has a
tenacity of purpose, which, when
aroused, means that he will accomplish
thia end if thero is' any possibility nf
doing so.: After procuring n summon,
ha returned to the hotel only to find
the Winnipoggor hsd packed his
trunks, sent tnem to the depot, nud
had gone up town to oall on some
friends beforo leaving. Ascertaining
the house he had gone to oall at, Constable Carty proceeded thither and on
enquiring if Mr. Boots, of Winnipeg,
wss within, received a reply In the affirmative. Hr. Boots wu then requested to appear, which he did,
though rather sheepishly, and was
served with tho summons liter admitting hi, previous statements wore not
absolutely correct. Instead of paying
the usual tax, the Winnipegger wsa
obliged tu pay the ooeta of the summons, etc., thus making the license
more expensive und at thu samo time
curtailing his chances of doing business. Whether the tax is just or not,
wo aro not prepared to say, but whilo
the city demands that commercial
travellers should tako out a license, it
will be found best lo do so, as the bylaw will be strictly enforced.
C. C. Jacobs,, Buffalo, N. V.. says:
"Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil cured liim of
a bad case of piles of 8 years' standing,
having tried almost every known remedy, besides two-Bufialo physicians, without relief; but the Oil cured him; he
thinks It cannot be recommended too
highly." There being imitations on the
market ol Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil,
customers will see that they get the
gtuuine. ^_<_^^^__^i      ■

LettMM Fer Ihe future.
Editor Colcmbian.—Now that the
high school tempest seems to have spent
Itself, perhaps you would allow a disinterested party to improve the occasion
for future uso. It has beeu evident from
all the circumstances that the high school
in B.C. has not been a popular institution for some, time, from the faet that it
has been kept in existence from the publio chest, and has been patronized only
by the few who could well afford to spend
time, with the view of a professional
education. When the high school was
first started at Victoria it waa felt
throughout the country that it was not
just to compel those who could never
hope to benefit by it, to help to support
it. The government mode a mistake in
the .tart and should long ago have remedied It by making it self-supporting. The
common public school, if properly managed and equipped, is all that the government of any country has any business
to support from the public chest, lt is a
great wonder that tho high school has
survived so long, aud now that the legislature bas thrown the burden of its
existence on the various cities lu B.C.
who have high schools, the question will
have to be squarely faced by these municipalities, and settled at once. It is no
use to indulge any farther in this crimination and recrimination; the fact is that,
under the circumstances in which ths
high school in Westminster hu been
placed, it wu, impossible for the institution to give1 satisfaction. No single
teacher, in a'mixed school ol boys aud
girls, In such advanced studiee, could be
expected to succeed; everybody connected with tbo school knew well enough
that the strain wu to great to be luting.
The school houso and Its environs have
uot been fit for snob an Institution. You
might travel tire whole of the neighboring republic and you wonld not find
suoh a tumbledown promises used for
even a common' school. The people of
Westminster had better quit quarrelling
over this dry bone of contention; they
have now got to shoulder the whole responsibility, the government can now
•it and laugh at our calamity, and tell
ua to try our hand at governing, and
paying the piper to boot. This thing of
nursing up full grows babies and then
turning them out on their own hook, all
at onoe, ia. pretty rough; but we will
have to grin and bear it. I am afraid
this luxury of a high school will ha«e to
go, but it may be for the best. The
common school will benefit by the seeming disaster. I would rather see two
hoys well titled to be good mechanics
than half-a-dosen unt to the university
to become a burden to themselves or
their friends, Let us cease this pother,
and unite in an effort to remedy past
mlstskes,   This Is not the only knotty
Suution thst hu to be straightened out
iy the good people of the Royal City.
We are a wonderful people or we would
have been wiped out long ago. Our Vancouver friends thoughts short Urns ago
that It would swamp us to to get sn
ocean veesel up to our lumber mills, but
it wu done like a cham and here she
is, filling up with lumbar that will make
the Sidney folks opsn their eyes by snd
by. We are undoubtedly going ahead in
varioua directions, bnt we should not
waste too much time quarrelling over dry
bones. Pax.
