It is the part of those who have
weight in the conduct of public
affairs to diaoountenancc, as far as
possible, an* tuch total rapture as
is now contemplated. Doubtless
the New England fishery interest
would be gratified, and the great
rnilway corporations with whom the
competing lines of Canada are a dis-
. turbing factor, would. not be displeased if these were, proscribed
upon Aiuerioan soil. Bat tliere are
larger interests, both present and
future, than these at stake; and tho
wholes disagreeable but important
question deserves to be dealt with
in a spirit larger than that whicli
appeals to publio passion and fans
an international dispute into a quarrel of serious dimensions in order to
make political capital out of an
alleged "spirited" foreign policy.—
St. Paul Press.
Electric street cars nre now running on a dozen different lines in
tlie United States and Canada.
Among the cities tliat have are Baltimore, Fiiikiilolphia, Detroit, fort
Huron, Appletmi, Wis., Los Angeles, Montgomery, Ab., and Scran-
ton in this country, and Windsor
and Toronto in Canada. These
lines are all running successfully.
That is to say, they run more cars,
at a greater speed, with as much or
more safety, and at less expense
thau street car lines operated by
horses hy cables. The actual expenditure per at per mile is from one-
fourth to one-half that of the horse
railways, The speed is from 25 to
100 per cent, greater, and it is
claimed that there is less danger
than the horse or cable power systems Tt is also claimed that the
problem of the elctric motor is fully
solved and that it can be no long
timo til) it will take the place of
horses and cable? on roost car lines.
—Oregonian.
At Arst sight it does appear un-
neighborly, to say the least, for the
Canadian 'government to prevent
American fishermen from landing
their catch and shipping it by our
railways to the States, from buying
ioe and bait, from purchasing supplies, etc. But if our cousins could
lie persuaded to put themselves
iu our plaoe'for a moment, their
views on the subject would probably
undergo a change. The specific purposes for whioh American vessels
may avail themselves of certain of
our bays and harbors are distinctly
set forth in the treat* of 1818; and
if any American or Canadian reader
desires to be further informed on
this branch of the fishery case, we
recommend him to procure the Canadian reports prepared by Mr. Peter
Mitchell, when he wns our minister
of marine. These specific purposes
are shelter, repairs, wood and water;
and an American vessel may not
enter "for any other purpose whatever" Why is this! Because if
American fishermen were allowed to
land when they liked for auy purpose they liked, the practical effect
would be to extend indefinitely
the fishing rights secured to them
by treaty. It would enable them,
without much risk of detection, to
fish within our inshore,, in harass
tha breeding places, to employ forbidden apparatus, and, generally
speaking, to play havoc with our
fisheries, just as they have impoverished their owu; and, in adiliiion,
there would ha nothing to prevent
tht wholesale violation of our trade
and navigation laws, unless indeed
we were, to maintain a standing
army nf officials nn every ooast.
Tile treaty provides what our neigh
bora may and what they nny uot
do; and if wu have right to stand
upon that ngraeiijmit. and that is
. really what Mr. Belmont moum to
say, than we liave no right to protect our mine,, or iur finest,, or our
Heldi from foreign intrusion; The
fisheries are a valuable property.
They yield 820,003,000 a yo ir and
give employment fo 25,000 men.
Anything consistent with reason wo
are willing to grant ti our neighbors; Imt it is rather li.ml to i lireat-
on tu cut us off from the American
continent simply lxwuu<u we are not
prepared to yielJ them equal rights
in a source of wealth which, on
their- own admission, belongs exclusively to us. The claims recently
advanced by Secretary Bayard are
at variance with the whole case of
the American government in timet
past, as well us with the elementary
principles of justice.—2'onmio Mali

Do They Mean Business?
IJofafa) in the eastern states und in
eastern Canada the people are
greatly exojted over tlio fishery question. 'On the fourth page of this
paper will he found a despatch from
Ottawa in whieh it is stated that
the imperial government has assured
the Canadian authorities that British vessels of war will be sent over
shortly tq assist Canadian cruisers
if necessary iti'enforoing the fishery
treaty against United States fishermen. We hope there will be no
occasion for the employment of forco
in this matter, but if the firebrands
who are doing their best to excite
hostility against Canada in tljo V.
8. congress have their way, these
British ships of war may find some
practice. Jor, tlieir guns. In another
column w* publish u report of some
of the speeches delivered in-the
United Stat"s senate on this question, and it will be admitted by
every one that the tone of them is
hardly friendly. We have already
pointed out that if an amicable settlement- of this dispute had been
sought, the way to reach it seemed
plain, enough. But the United States
senate is morn anxious to make sure
of the fishermen's voto and the Irish
vote in the coming presidential campaign than it is to tind a fair and
amicable settlement of the fishery
question. Besides, there is a growing feeling throughout the republic
that-the national defences, and especially the navy, ought speedily to
be placed on a more efficient footing.
For months a'large section of the
press has ■ been clamoring for this,
and it has been pointed out that the
whole United States navy would be
perfectly powerless in the presence
of one single British ironclad of the
first order. If the party favoring increased naval development can bring
the nation to contemplate the probability of a conflict with Great Britain' over the fisheries, it will very
likely secure its object. There
seemsfA ffcrse open to Canada under thf yroJjnstaruMbut tqenforce
her trealyirights. ' We carrot surrender our fisheries any more than
we can surrender our forests or our
lands. Several of the most influen-
tiu.1 American journals, among which
is Harpst's Weekly, have frankly
stated that the provisions of the
treaty of.1818 must regulate the
conduct of the two nations in respect to fishery privileges, and we
believe Canada has never exceeded
the. previsions of that treaty. If
our|friends across the ling will take
theJonly sensible course' open to
them and enter into negotiations for
a modification of that treaty, well
and good; but if not, the responsi
bility of what comes must lie at
their doors. Oi one thing they may
assure themselves: we shall never
give up .our treaty rights at tho demand of the political demagogues
who; are endeavoring to make the
government of the United States a
tool'for the accomplishment of their
own wicked designs.
. rplttcul Predictions.
At present everybody in the east
is (peculating on the probable result' of" the coming elections. Both
parties count on a majority, varying
from. 21 to 38. The late house of
commons contained 211 members,
divided as follows: Conservatives,
139; Reformers, 72; giving a Conservative majority of 67. The new
house will have 21.1 members, 4
new representatives having been given to the Northwest territories. A
writer iri the Toronto Mail estimates
that 'the Reform party will be 121
strong, which would give Mr. Blake
a small, working majority. Others
predict a Conservative majority of
from Ah to 38. In the late liouso
the"Oon»erviitives had a majority
from every province, but this is
•ur* *> 1* greatly changed. -The
enstffji provinces liave undergone a
great* political transformation since
lost^general election, and will givo
a considerable Liberal majority in
the aggregate. It is impossible to
forecast the vote in Quebec with
any certainty. The results of the
late provincial elections in that provinciate auoh as to indicate a great
change jn the political mind of the
FrepgB. The execution of Riel,
which Frenchmen regard as unjus
tillable under the circumstances, has
produced a wonderful impression on
their excitable minds, and has inflamed' them with hostility towards
Sir John. But the Riel affair is
not the only difficulty in Quebec,
Many of the bolters declare that
this i. only the last straw which
proved to be beyond the strength of
the camel's hock, The people of
Quebec, they, say, have been for
years nothing more than a political
oh%tte|, bought and sold by monog-
ing/politicians whose personal interests have been served by their votes.
The -Riel affair was accepted by them
as improper occasion upon which to
throw off entirely the yoke of political slavery under which they had
lost political independence and manhood, if this Is really the true condition of: aflaiM, the Kiel affair may
provo to be a blessing in disguise to
the wliole country, for it is certainly
in tho public interest that tho franchise should everywhere be free ns
possible. But you can't rely upon
the people of Quebec to remain for
any length of lime in any particular frame of mind, and the only
safe assertion in tho circumstances
is that thc present Conservative
majority if. certain to be considerably reduced. The same remark
applies to Ontario. It would not
be safe to accept the provincial elections as an indication of what the
federal vote in Ontario will lie, beoause the issues involved uro very
different, but there is no doubt that
the N. P. on which Sir John went
into power in 1878 has been disappointing to the bulk of the people, and will not work as an election cry in 1887. However the
contest comes out, neither party
will come from tho fight with anything like the majority now held by
the Conservatives.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
thc Columbian Newipaper and
Printing Concern waa purchased 1>y a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlio object of
the new company is to continue tbe pub*
lication of the British Columbian news*
paper and cany on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual .interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thoro will be uo
slackening of the energy hitherto dis*
played in thc management of thc establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Thc Columiuan will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may bo considered iu the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, tho book and
stationery establishment iu this city
having been taken over hy Mi*. T. II.
PcarBou, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name und for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
Bhould be maintained in this city, and
the now comnanv asks for public patronage on the-gr6ii»d that it is engaged In
an enterprise-calculated to promote the
public wetfaij. It asks that the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as,its policy Is
consistent with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts due tho concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

To tho Electors or tlio District of
New Westminster.
GENTLEMEN.-In offering myself to
the District of Westminster to represent
you In the Commons this coming opening of the House, I do so In nl! sincerity,
believing thnt I can do more for your In*
terests than nny of the gentlemen that
have come forward so far. I am a thorough
Conservative and In entire sympathy
with the present government, who hnve
proved themselves thc friend in need and
in deed to British Columhla.
Gentlomen, I have mv private feelings
and opinions on most of the questions of
the day, but If I go to the House by your
sanction to represent you. I shall submit
to your commands nud directions which
you can send me ns the different questions
of the day present themselves and ascir-
cumstances,iiiterestsandopinlouschnnge
on the spot, to ho represented; for I hold
that in going to parliament by your vote
and pleasure, I go as your trusted ngent
and not as your lord and master, its some
hnve thouglitand acted accordingly when
out of your reach.
Tempomncc, gentlemen, is ono of the
questions that trouble Ihe district nt the
present time. Now, gentlemen, when the
right time arrives for us to receive prohibition nono will be found to work for that
measure with more sincerity or energy
thnn I, and no government on earth will
bo more happy togrant that measure thnn
they; bnt tho time has not arrived yet, I
am sorry to say, and 1 say further, that
tho time for prohibition entirely rests
with tho temperance poople themselves,
for as soon as they prove their slncority in
the cause by petitioning parllnmentto put
a tax on ton, coffee and other articles, and
on incinnejf necessary, thereby providing
revenue to enfryon (he govornment, then
nnd then only can thoy succeed In their
cause, thon and thon only can the government coru.ply with their wishes. Money
13 the root of till evil, so parsons tell us,
nnd money Is the mighty lever that Is going to lift ynu into that haven of temperance yon all so desire and dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize tbo importance of your selecting a good and proper
mon to represent yon nt Ottawa, and I also
fully realize the fact that I at so great distance am working to n great, disiidvunt-
age; hut, gentlemen. I trust to your Intelligence and tothe friendship of my old
friends, and feci satisfied you will do Justice to yourselves who nro to be benefitted
or injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to servo you sincerely und faithfully lu
all things if sent to tbe Commons tore-
present you there, and If you do not I can
stop at home, help you when I ean, and
sincerely wish you may be unwell herved
ns I would like lo serve you iuy«clf
Gentlemen, you can give mo my answer
nt tbo polls, nml-whether TgoOrstny I
shall nbrtfyattcmh-ifr
Vours truly and sincerely,

Fishery Retaliation.
II. I. 8ENAT0M ON TKE WAR PATH.
There was a heated discussiou in the
Washington senate on tho bill to authorize the president to protect and
defend the rights of American fishing
vessels, American fishermen, American
trading and other vessels in certain
cues.
Senator Ingalls thought theso fishery
difficulties must be ultimately settled,
either by negotiation or by war. This
measure wu distinctly one of retaliation, tt wu an eye for an eye, a
tooth for a tooth, a Dili for a fish, an
iniult for an insult, a wrong for a
wrong.
Senator Fryre—The people knew
they were sixty million strong; they
knew they were the richest nation of
the earth; they knew their power, and
they would not humiliate themselves
antl do violence to their conscious
pride by resorting to littlo, miserable
tricka and outrages by way of retaliation, What the committee on foreign
relations sought was that the president
of the United States should be empowered to closo the ports of the United
States against any or all fishermen and
against any or all merchant vessels.
He believed the president would only
have to take the advantage of this bill,
and issue his proclamation that no fish,
fresh or salted or canned or smoked,
the product of Canadian fishermen,
shall be landed in any port of the
United States, and not another outrage by thia British colony would be
heard of.
Senator Veat—All this talk which
runs to meet any suoh thing as war
with the other great English-speaking
Jeople of the world is to bo deprecated,
t becomes ub to consider well every
step we take in regard to this most
serious complication. England is not
without some pretence of right in her
construction ol the treaty of 1818. Of
all the calamities that could befall a
country, war between Great Britain
and the United States would be the
greatest. A world in amis could not
conquer the United States on its own
soil, but in a maritime wnr who could
aiiBwer for the, result f ;WJj[o '.(tajittd to
run the risk of throwing down the
gauge of battle in any suoh contest I
Who wanted to invito such a contest,
whatever his patriotism or his military
ardor, if he stopped- to think for a moment of the enormous loss, not only of
life, but of property, which would follow from any such struggle I
Senator Hoar—The committee on
foreign affain was acting in a post
peaceful way, ao u to furnish an opportunity to Great Britain to reflect
upon the question of how much thii
wu going to damage her commerce,
lt would not be necessary for the president to issue a proclamation of embargo, or a proclaniatiou of entire suspension of commercial relations with Canada or any other port of Great Britain.
He wu sure that when the Canadian
fishermen found that there wu not in
the United States a market for a pound
of their fish they would at once consult the pooket nerve. It would be
found quite euy to arrange ull difficulties without retorting to war. But if
theie troubles were allowed to go on,
there would be war in them, and war
boyond control of congress. The first
blood that would be drawn in a controversy of thia kind on the Canadian
cout would be tho tocsin of war. The
people of the United States would go
into war unanimously.
Senator Ingallt—England hu always
been a ruffian, a coward and a bully
among the nation! of the earth, insolent to the weak, tyrannical to the
feeble and cringing and obsequious to
the strong. Her history for centuries
hia beon n record of crimes agaimt
the human race. Wherever there hu
been a feeble, weak and helpless nation Great Britain hu been there for
the purpose of rapacity, plunder and
conquest. England bears no good-will
to thii country. The memory of two
defeats runklea in the breast, of Englishmen. When I aay Great Britain u
not friendly to thit oountry, I mean
tho ruling classes are unfriendly.
England cheated the South with
false hopes of recognition, and Injured
the North by violations of neutrality.
Her coune in the trenty of Washington wu actuated solely by the
fear of consequences to that country
in the next war in which the might be
engaged if ihe permitted the principle
which ihe established to stand unde-
nied. There is no special reciprocity
of good-will on the part of America
towards England. There are- few
Americans who do not regret Waterloo.
Therr are few Americans who do not,
recognising thefact that the course of
England towards thia country hu been
one of insolence, suspicion and outrage from the beginning of our national
existence. There it no purpose on the
part of Great Britain to secure a peaceful solution, a pacifio interpretation of
the doubtful provision! of the treaty
of 1818, but rather a deliberate purpose to foment irritation and discord
between Canada and the United States
so u to prevent that pacification in
the near future, which would be inevitable if both people were left to the
operation of national laws of trade
and socioty.

Montreal, Jan. 24.—The Hon. (j.
E. Foster, minister, of marine and
fisheries, in an interview concerning
the Belmont bill, said: ''While the
bill appeared to assume that the American fishing vessels had trading
rights in Canadian waters, the treaty
of 1818 gave them no such rights. The
Canadian government hus nnt in a
single instanoo refused any fair right
of hospitality to American fishermen,
and if eongress deprives the Canadian
vessela of the privilege, denied to
American vessels in Canadian porte, it
will only prevent Canadinn fishermen
from trading in American ports."
Measures uf retaliation, looking to the
complete abrogation of trade between
tho two countries, he doos not believe
the American people will erer sanction.

The Confederation Lift.
1 he annual report of tliis solidly pros-
. irons Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
" "y justify the ecomlums whioh
inoli' '
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company hu declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the oompany bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of tbe finances of
the Company Is thefact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims—which in a company of the age of
tho Confederation Life is something to be
prond of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
evory debt, there Is a surplus of 1282,199
over liabilities and capital combined,
The increaso in tho assets in the lut year
wu 8260,390. So muoh for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined u the tme polioy of
the Company, vis:—"To keep Its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

Ottawa, Ont, Jan. 29.—It is officially stated that the government, in
response to an appeal to the mother
country, has just received assurances
from the imperial authorities that
men-of war wiil be despatched to the
maritime provinces in the spring for
the purpose of co-operating with Canadian eruiser. in the enforcement of
fishery protection. The promise of
tht British government created great
satisfaction in official circles, and indicates that American vessels will be
more rigidly excluded from our waters
during next season than in the past.
A cabinet minister, speaking on the
aubject, expressed himsolf as follows:
" 1 have oome to the conclusion that
American legislators, having gone so
far, will never give thoir consent to
the appointment of a commission.
Gloucester fishermen will not venture
into our water, again in force, and
next April will witness a startling fait-
ing-off in their trade. Two yean
hence the splendid Yankee fishing
fleet will be t thing of the post. Let
them retort to retaliation if they will,
and the result will be that the game
will work both ways. Portland, now
the winter port of Canada, will decline, while Halifax, under the new
order of things, will flourish. Civil
war between the eastern and western
state, would follow the adoption of
the retaliation bill."
London, Jan. 29.—Lord Dunaandlo
agree, to reduce rent! 25 per cent and
to rtinatatt evicted tenanta. There i.
great rejoicing among tht tenants ovor
their victory.
Beblin, Jan. 29.—The billot being
fixed for March 2nd, the reichstag
cannot assemble before the 8th of that
month. Preparation, for the elections are proceeding very quietly, but
on all .ides with muoh activity. The
government is working chiefly along
two lines, to impede ttje socialistic
olwtoral propaganda and to influence
the return of clerical candidate, supporting the .eptennate.
Pabis, Jan. 29.—The chamber of
deputies, by a vote of 240 to 180, today adoptedthe first clause of the pub.
lie worship budget. The rejection of
this clause would have been tantamount to the suppression of tho whole
of the publio worship estimate.
The ('Htiadlah Paelllc.
London, Jan. 17.--1 am authorized
to aay that the article in the Quarterly
Itevicv of the political history of tlio
construction of the Canadian Pacific
railway ii very accurate. The reviewer
states that the railway is really the
history for the timo of Canada itself,
•nd li intimately associated with tho
future of the British empire. It claims
consideration iu respeot of its imperial
and commercial value The railway
had made Canada and tho Paoific coast.
tnd had enabled the government to
put down the Riel rebellion.
TUI ADVANTAOKSO'THK railway.
Tho reviewer points out the advantages offered by tho road for tho con-
veyanoeuf the, Pacific and Atlantic
mails to and from Japan, China, and
Australia, being under one management from let to tea. The question,
will the line pay ? can bo answered in
the affirmative. It is now earning a
substantial amount in excess of tho
fixed charges, a result astonishing and
gratifying to the shareholders. The
fixed charge, will not increase for
•omt time tnd tht traflic receipt, will
nt tht wont ihow t large development.
The financial success ofthe road teems
to be assured. Canada is already reaping a good return for the sacrifices she
has made, and England cordially hopes
her expectations will be fulfilled, inasmuch aa tht work deeply interests the
Mother Country. The great Northwest bat been opened up to emigration, where million, ot aores of wheat-
producing land await the settler. No
longer need Canada', sons go to tho
State, to mnkt a ntw start, nor need
emigration from England drift to New
orittINO ItP THI COl'NTRV.
Hit railway; hss wived the Indian
question. It liu opened up vast conl

trad, with Australia. Yet more far-
reaching rtttdtt will affect Engliihmen

TwWrfimity well be called
"the acceloratod ninil service." Halifax is to bo readied in five days and a
hnlf from Quecnstown, nud passengers
will reach tho Paoific coast tu eleven
days from London.
STRATEGIC IMPOKTANCE OFTUB ItAlI.WAY
The Canadian government has proposed the construction of steamers to
be used as cruisers on the Pacific boas.
In view of the rotations of England
with China and tier less harmonious
relations with Russia, the mutter is of
very great importance to tlio empire,
and England should not at u critical
moment bo weak. Thc railway is of
strategic importance to the empire,
und affords a new route to India, if the
Suez canal should be blocked, preferable to the Cape route; military nud
naval stores cun bo forwarded aud
transports scut to India more quickly.
In caso of war the wheat supply of
Russia and India would bo stopped by
tho old routes, but England could obtain her Indian supply through Canada
by the railway, ns well as a large nud
ever-increasing supply of Canadian-
grown cereals. The road is already
being used by the British government,
which hus established stores at Vancouver and Esquimalt It is probable
that the mail service from London to
Australia via Canada can be mndo in
thirty-two days.
In conclusion tho reviewer says
Canada, by the railway, has contributed to the welfare nnd unity of the
empire nnd the peaceful interests of
the world.
A Petition to the Queen*
An Irish lady has petitioned the
Queen under somewhat peculiar circumstances. The petitioner hnd an
uncle named Alexander Ferdhinnd-
Petrio who entered tho army iu 1780,
serving iu the 79th Regiment. He sold
out in 1811 nnd died in 1844, at the
age of 88yeafs. Ho "willed" all his
property, amount in cash to about
£20,000, to the Queen. HiB niece, who
was left a widow in 1855 with eight
daughters and one son, has ever since
his death been eking out un existence
by the precarious profession of keeping
a private school, but this occupation,
by reason of her great ago and of her
growing blindness, she hns hud to relinquish. Consequently, the prayer of
her petition seeks that her case and
that of hor daughters may be equitably entertained by Her Alajesty, who,
more than thirty years ago, received
the whole of their ancestor's estate as
a bequest. Here is, indeed, a chanco for
the Queen to celebrate her jubilee.—
London Truth.
Cisterns In Tree-Tops.
A writer tells of a surveying party
who were resting nt noon iu a forest
in Florida, when one'of the meu ex*
claimed: "I would givo 50 cents a
swallow for all tho water I could
drink."
He expressed the sentiments of the
others; nil were very thirsty, nnd thore
was not a spring or stream nnywhere
in the vicinity.
While the men wero talking the
surveyor saw n crow put his bill into a
cluster of broad, long leaves, growing
on the side of n tnll cypress. The
leaves were those of a peculiar air
plant. They were green nnd bulged
out at the bottom, forminfran inverted
shell. The smaller end was held to
the tree by roots grappling tho bark.
Feeding on the air nud wnter that it
catches nnd holds, the air plant becomes a sort of cistern. The surveyor
sprang to his feot with a laugh.
"Boys," he said, that old crow is
wiser tlian overy one of us."
"How so ?" they asked.
"Why he knows that thore are a
hundred thousand wnter tanks in this
forest."
"Whore." they exclaimed inamnze-
ment.
The surveyor cut au nir plant in two
aud drained nearly u pint of pure cold
water from it. The men did not suffer
for water after that, for every tree iu
the forest had at least one air plant
nnd almost every air plant contains n
drink of wnter.
