NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. 0., MONDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 27, 1880.
NUMBER 126
gaUg fttitish; (Mambiatt
Monday Evening, December XT. 1KS0.
The, plan for a "universal commercial language," originated about
five years ago by Herr Schleyer, of
Switzerland, seems to be meeting
with greater favor than has been
accorded other projects of the kind.
It is reported, that Volapuk is already spoken with facility by thousands of 'Europeans; knowledga.rtf
it is being disseminated by more
than fifty socidttts scattered over,
England, Germany, Auvtriai Sweden, Holland, Asia Minor, and other
countries; Volapuk grammars for
the use of Hottentots and Ohinese,
besides all the European nations,
are either in the market or in course
of preparation; and t»o reviews,
one entirely iri! Volapuk arid the
other with a translation on alter-
I nate pages, are regularly published.
The special advantage of the new
language is the ease with which it
can be learned, eight lessons having
' enabled a Parisian class to correspond jesidiljPviithintudentBin/dr
'■ oign countries.—Selected.
A bill is likely to. pass congress
this season providing for a new system of electoral count in presiden
tial elections, and to render impossible
a repetition of the disgraceful manipulation by which Tilden was deprived '- of - the i. presidency.     The
point' of; ohief importance was to
provide a safe method of deciding
between rival sets of electors from
the same state.    The present bill
, very properly ,thro»(B the resppnsi:
bility   of   this  decision upon  the
state.   If objection be made to any
electoral vote, the houses shall separate for its consideration.    If only
one return has been received, and it
is certified according to law, it is to
be received and counted.   If there
be two or more returns, the state
must determine which is the legal
I one.   If there are conflicting claims
I in the state, however, as to the legal
I government, the question as to the
I lawful tribunal is to be determined
I by congress; but in every cose that
I return  shall be counted on which
I the two houses, voting; separately,
■shall agree.   The powers and duties
lof the president of the senate, as to
[which  different  views  have  pre
■ vailed, are clearly defined and the
I various questions liable to arise at
I the counting of the electoral votes
{seem to be Carefully provided for,
-Ex.
There, is no comparison between
[the platform addresses mode by Mr.'
I Blake and those made by Sir John,
land yet wherever Sir John goes he
lis received with the greatest possible enthusiasm. It has been truly
[said that in Mr. Blake the country
I has a man of whom it may well be
[proud. He would be a shining
I mark on any platform, and added to
his great abilities is his high char-
1 actor. But iu personal popularity
[ Sir John Macdonald leads tlicm all.
1 Nor is it to be wondered at, People
I in all parts of the country who lis ve
[heard of Sir John for forty years
land have seen liim hounded by the
■ Grit organs day after day in all that
[time, naturally have some curiosity
I to get a look at him. If some of
[them are under the impression that
I he has horns and hoofs who shall
I blame them) There is a suspicion
[ in some quarters that in pronounc-
| ing against prohibition at this par-
P tioular time Mr. Blake is playing a
political card, and that seeing the
I Tory organ flaunting the prohibition
flag he is anxious to get every man
| whose interests are opposed to pro-
I hibitiou to come ovor to the Reform
| camp.    It is also suspected that he
I played   a political card   when lie
I voted with the Frenchmen ugainst
I the government for hanging Riol—
la vote that many of his own sup-
■porters declined to give.   But Mr,
■Blake justified liis attitude toward
■these questions in able and eloquent
■speeches, aiid his followers are satis-'
ffied.    Will he carry th. country
at the next election)   His success
Idepends in a measure on the success
of Mr! Mowat, but if lie does not
wore a triumph this time the party
■rill begin to despair of ever reach-'
png the goal.—Toronto Telegram.

failjj fritwrt Columbian
Moailay Evening, Ueeemner il. 1886.
The comlna Session.
On the 24th of noxt montli the
legislature of British Columbia will
meet "foi- The despatch of business.
Wo are not'in tho government's
confidence, ami cannot, therefore,
say what measures will be brought
down for consideration. It has
been commonly remarked in all legis-
tures that Many of the laws plaoed
on the statute books are .of very little practical value. Every member
fancies that his particular hobbies
ought to bo prystalisedinto statutes,
and the result is that our statute
books sometimes become more cumbersome than useful. Some of the
acts passed last session call for revision' and amendment.   They w«ro
 ...X. *u;«udi., apparently, more
in the interest of a particular class
than in the public interest, and the
aim and result, of them has been
found in practice to be different
from what was supposed. This is
true of the acts relating to the legal
and medical professions. Some of
the provisions of these acts are extremely burdensome, and as long as
they are allowed to' prevail we cannot expect persons standing high in
the professions elsewhere to come to
this province! We hope that these
laws will be revised at the coming
session so as to make them conform
to the public interest. There seems
to be room for several amendments
in the acts relating to municipalities. , It is a question worth; of
consideration whether more or less
of the'' public revenue should be
placed under the control of the municipal councils for local improvements. The present government
has been very liberal in this respect, having every year given $1000
to each municipality, and in speoial
cases even supplementing this by
■ additional grants in special cases.
In some of the municipalities these
appropriations have been expended
so judiciously as to satisfy the ratepayers and leave no ground for complaint. In others, however, there
has been less judgment, and in
some oases the disputes have grown
so hot that people have been led to
question whether, after all, it would
not be better to keep the expenditure of these appropriations entirely
iu the hands of the governmont.
We are inclined to think that, all
things considered, the municipalities ought to bear the responsibility
of their own.local improvements as
far as possible. It is in the public
interest that municipalities should
become more self-reliant, and that
they should assume completely the
management of their local affairs.
They ought, also, to be made as far
as possible independent of the government and of government influence. It may be said that past experience does not lead to the opinion that appropriations for local
improvements can be expended more
economically by the local authori
ties than by the government, and
we admit the force of the remark.
But if it is desirable to make these
institutions more self-reliant, wo
know of no way iu which this can
be done more effectually than by
giving them'oontrol of their own
affairs. At present the amount of
revenue raised by municipal taxes is
small, and the position of councillor
is consequently one of little responsibility or honor. But if tho responsibilities of the situation were
increased, the effect would be to
bring into the municipal councils a
better class of men. The ratepayers
will not be apt to s>e their resources
wasted without protest, and if it
was known that any large resources
were to be placed at tbe council's
disposal, a great deal more interest
- would be taken in municipal elections. It is time, too, that some
change was made in the practice of
disposing of our timber lands. Timber is one of our most valuable resources, and as tilings are going
now there is danger that this source
of revenue will soon disappear. In
Ontario a very large revenue is received annually for timber berths,
but in this country the timber lands
are being disposed of rapidly with
out any competition whatever. If
those lands were sold by auction, as
in Ontario, lhey would probably
realise a great deal more than they
are doing undor the present system.
The qmstiori bf railway construction ia 'likely to occupy a considerable share of attention in the next
session, TJie Cariboo Railway, the
New Westminster * Southern, the
Northern Railway from Nanaimo
to the north-western limit of Vancouver Island, and other railway
schemes, > are under contemplation.
We are of opinion that every one
nf these projects should receive favorable consideration from the house.
Not only should the charters be
granted Willingly (with the proper
safeguards, of course) but in tome
oases it would be economy to aid
these schemes by moderate grants of
land or money. Nothing will more
speedily^ open up a country that has
resource! than a railway; and in a
country Jike ours, where it costs
such enormous sums to make and
maintain trunk roads, the construe,
tion of railways would cause an
immense saving to the treasury.
Happy New Year!

Fatal Accident'.—An accident resulting in the death of ono man and
the injury of two or three others occurred near Field on Friday last. It appears a train with a baggage car and a
second class car in the rear was
going up an incline when both broke

speed. The baggage car ran on to a
safety switch, and. was uninjured, but
the. second clous car missed the switch
and becoming.' detachud from tbe
trucks was dashed to pieces. We understand that Mr. Cox, mail clerk,
was on the baggage car at the time.

Sudden Death.—Louisa Greer, a
16-year-old daughter of Mr. Samuel
Greer of English Bay, while in Vancouver on Thursday evening last waa
seised with a fit and fell helpless on
the ttreet. She was carried to a
hotel and medical assistance called in,
but all to no purpose, as consciousness
was not revived and about 10 o'clook
the same night ahe sank into the sleep
which knows no waking. To the
mind of the father, who had gone to
the city with his daughter, and had
only left her a few minutes while she
went to buy Christmas presents for
her little brothers and sisters, there
appeared to be suspicious circumstances about the terribly sudden
death of his daughter, and an inquest
wss held. The jury returned a verdict of " death from natural causes."
On Saturday the body was brought
over fnr Interment at this oity,' being
followed to the grave by a few friends.
Mr. Greer, who came over, expressed
himself as dissatisfied with the verdict
of the jury, and naturally looks for
something to account for the mysterious death of his daughter, so unexpectedly cut off ii. the bloom ot youth.
Wedding-' Bells.— A correspondent
at Upper Sumas writes: "Some 00
or 70 invited yuests met at thehospita-
blehome at' O. B. Ackermnti, Uppor
Sumas, on the evening of the 20;li to
witness tho nuptial bonds solemnized
by the Rev. W. Patterson between
Mr. William Fadden (a brother of
Mrs. O. B, Aeker'msn), a highly respected young man of this plaoe, and
Miss Bertha Grant of New Westminster, who has been for some time the
much esteemed schoolmistress of
Upper Sumat school. One of the
notable features of the evening wu
the umbrella whioh took place of the
marriage bell. After the ceremony
and wedding feast were over, the
evening wat spent in tinging, reciting,
reading, and a few simple games. All
being over the company dispersed,
well pleased with the social gathering.
Mr. Fadden, unlike many young men,
made ample provision for the comfort
of his wife, having built a neat house
and furniihed it with everything
requisite for doinestio comfort. The
best wishes of alt were extended as
the happy couple took their departure
for their hew home amid a shower ol
rice and old hoots." The Columbian
adds its heartiest congratulations.

Christmas Day.
Chriitiuoi passed off in the oity the
usual quiet way. Everybody appeared
to remain at home and the street* were
almost deserted during the day. The
cool and ddcikedly Christmas like m.-
ture ot the weather made the fireside
the most pleasant place tobe, although
it did not prevent several from coming
in from the country and over, from
Vancouver to spend, Christmas with
their friends jiere. '    |   .
The spreexl made at the different
hotels ii reported to hava been excellent. ! At tbje Colonial, the leading
Iiouse on Uie mainland of British Columbia, the cusine was such as would
have delighted Epicurus himself had
he been there, and was no doubt quite
equal to anything that can be got up
in the province. Mine host does not
attempt things by halves, and when
he undertakes to do the grand he does
it regardless of trouble or expense'.
His Christians dinner for his guests
would do credit to the hotels of oities
very much greater in sice than New
Westminster. The poor unfortunates
of the penitentiary, the jail and asylum
were not allowed to see Christmas goby without feeling that to them also
it brought good cheer and was the
best day of all the year. At the
penitentiary and jail the prisoners
received roast beef and potatoes,
plum pudding, apples, nuts, &c,
which waa to them a great treat after
a year of prison faro. At the asylum
tho inmates were feasted on roast
turkey, roast duck, roast grouse, plum
pudding, With.all the dainties wliich
go to make a good dinner. After
dinner there was a Christmas tree on
which there was something for eaoh
of the unfortunates. Tlie women got
shawls and tlie men got pipes and
tobacco. Tho usual Christmas dinner
was also given at the Royal Columbian Hospital, where everything good j
whs offered to those who could pnr- j
take of it.
Pope k Bltleau, druggists, Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, writes: We have never
sold any medicine that gives such satisfaction to the consumer and pleasure to
the seller as Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil.
We can refer you to numbers that have
used it for diptheria with entire satisfaction and success.

Anothkb Injunction!— The Port
Moudy injunotiouists were to appear
before Mr. Justice Gray to-morrow to
show cause why their inunctions
against the C.P.R. should not be dissolved. But some of them conceived
that this wuuld bu too much like a man
putting hiB head into the hangman's
noose, and they have taken out an in-
juncion to prevent the case going before Mr. Justice Gray I Ifc ia expected
the matter will now como before a full
court about the 5th of next month.
Personal.
Messrs. J. 0. McLennan, A. L,
Reid, M. Beattie and R. S. Hanns,
among other worihy members of the
teaching profession, are spending the
holidays in the city.
Mr. D. W. Port and his son Mr,
Edward Port, of Toronto, have arrived per O.P.R. Mr. Edward Port
came yeBterday und Mr. D. W. Port
to-day. It is the intention of these
gentlemen, who have been for years
extensively engaged in the fish business, to make permanent arrangements here for shipping fresh 6sh
from the Paoifio coast to the eastern
markets. Tlie Messrs. Port are at
the Colonial
Christmas In tbe Churches.
On "The only night in all the year,
that "Sees stolid prieBt the chalice
rear," Pontifical High Moss was cele
brated in St. Peter's church, where a
large congregation assembled to do
honor and homage to the great Christian festival. The handsome church
was beautifully lighted and tastefully
adorned with greenery and flowers.
His Lordship Bishop D'Herbomez was
celebrant, the Rev. Fathers Jayol and
Horris beincr, respectively deacon and
sub-deacon. The august service was
celebrated with the beautiful and
heart-stirring ceremonies, which have
ever been grouped about the one offering of the Ancient Faith, The singing, as well as it instrumental accompaniment, were above praise. The
Rev. Father McGuckeu preached an
eloquent and practical sermon, in
which he besought his hearers to consider, and be taught by tlie lesson of
humility, eelf-forgetfulnoas, and contempt for riches and plaoe and power
wiili whioh the wondrous event then
being commemorated was inwrought.
Among .the congregation were "many
that were not of this fold, who doubtless were edified by the solemn and pathetic beauty of this first midnight
mass celebrated in the parish church of
St. Peter.
At Holy Trinity on Christmas Day
there were three administrations of
the holy communion, A goodly congregation was met together for morning prayer at tho 11 o'clock service,
and many remained to receive the communion. A sermon appropriate to the
gracious season was preached by the
rector. The churoh nod beeu made
bright and pretty with evergreens, colored texts, monograms and other suitable devices. On the communion table
wore placed vases containing vast bouquets of natural flowers which hinted
at "Italian skies" and suggested the
seasonableness of a certain midwinter
popular picnic proposed to be held on
Father Fraser's verdant banks.
In the Reformed Episcopal churoh
service was also held on Christmas
morning by the Rev. Mr. Haddon. In
the other churches, yesterday, appropriate sermons were preached.
Robert Lubbuok, Cedar Rapid's,
writes i " I have used Dr, Thomas' Electric Oil both for myself and family for
diptheria, with the very but results, 1
regard it as the best remedy for tlie disease, and would use no other." When
buying Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, see that
?ou get the genuine. Beware of imitia-
lons.

The License Court.
Kditor Columiian.—It is perhaps
best to leave the aotion of Wednesday's
licensing court mainly to the verdict of
the common sense, common conscience
and the instinctive loyalty of the people
to justice and right. The refusal to grant
a liquor license to a particular house
three months ago has been reversed. It
would be difficult to make even a plaus-
able defence of this course, muoh less a
justifiable one, It is only fair to say
that from the known proclivities of the
members of the board it is certain that
half of the number of magistrates voted
against granting the license. In spite of
this division of the court, it was balanced
over to the side of liquor in order to
plant another whiskey establishment In
the foulest moral filth-holt in tho oity.
This will win the applause of the liquor
party, and so will all the rascality, bestiality, low-villany, foul-mouthed profanity and prostituted virtue iu the city
applaud. This does not prove the deed
wrong, but I simply mention the fact as
uncomfortably significant. Neither am
I saying that many respectable people
do not approve, but tho faot is the ssmt
notwithstanding and "he needs a long
spoon who sups with the Dovil." It
would take an audacious man to say that
(lod is on the side of the saloons, or Ap-
rlauds this deed IWerity will ve neuter it, will judge il, aye! timl suffer from
tt too, Meantime, the kuleidujcone nf
events turns rapidly in our day, and wlio
can for tell the forms in the near future!
The duty of ■ the hour is to stand with
ceaseless vigilance by Bturdy principle,'
believing that God has given to manhood
but one clue to success,- -utter and exact
justiee.   This is the true expediency.
What were the reasons urged by the
legal agent who appeared before the
court to make the application ? Not that
the business was a good, respectable one
for a good man to engage in; not tliat in
the interests of citizens it was important
that more facilities should bo provided
for satisfying thirsty mouths; bat that,
forsooth, more houses of entertainment
were needed, and that the applicant wan
a respectable man.
Now, what connection tliere is between
a house of public entertainment and the
-granting of a liquor license it is difficult
to see, especially in this ease where the
possible accommodation fs necessarily so
limited at bent. The liquor traffic is
manifest y intended to be the real business of the concern,and the other a mere
pretense that a man would find it hard
to plead with self-respect. None knew
tliis better than the court that granted
the license. Then, what has the argument of an applicant's respectability to
do with the question if it is not first patent that au additional license is needed
for its own sake ? Nsy, is not recourse to
this plea a tacit admission that the business is essentially bad, thut its natural
aud habitual tendencies are brutish and
need to be held in leash? How then can
a respectable man be supposed to go iuto
a business from its nature so irredeemably
bad as we all know this to be ? Verily ifc
would require a chop-logic to harmonize
theso contradictions.
The issue between the saloon and the
home has been brought into public prominence once again. The force of the collision has compelled a number of magistrates to vote two ways upon what must
be regarded as the same essential issue.
A session ago they paid homage at the
shrine of the sacred home as represented
in the anxious solicitude of its noble
mothers who dared, the jeers of the
heartless and the seom of the rude in
order by their presence to plead for their
imperilled firesides. To-day that shrine
is profaned and the saloon scores an advance. Be it known that those ladies
regard every saloon, evtry liquor bar and
every additional license given as an insult flung into the faoe of all decent womanhood. Call it fanaticism if you
Stease, it is nevertheless strangely wed-
ed to fact; and the fanaticism of today becomes the fashionable creed of
to-morrow and " trite as the multiplication table a week aftor." Besides, it is
hard to say who is mod. The madman
in Edinburgh, when asked why he was
in the asylum, replied, " They said at
home that! was mad; and I said I was
not; but they had the majority," "Fanaticism"*!* a word mostly in the mouths
of parrots. If it takes on an average
ten confirmed drunkards to maintain
each saloon, we must remember that ifc
is the liquor business that transforms
our fair children into those forms of human beastliness; and it becomes a pertinent question to ask. whose sons ore
going to fill up the constantly decimated
.ranks ? Mayhap it will come home to
some of those who have raised their
hands in the exercise of a delegated and
solemn public trust in the late decision.
Ood forbid that it Bhould be bo I Is there
auy wonder that people are wild when
they look at such facts and stand helplessly by whilst their most sacred interests are bought and sold before their
eyes ? C. Watsqh.
Mr. Alexander Robinson, of Exeter,
in writing about one of tho most popular
articles, and one that has done more good
to the atllicted than any othor medicine
haa during the short timo it has been in
existence, says: " I havo used four hot*
ties of Northrop tt. Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and have
been cured of Dyspepsia that troubled
me for over ton years. Fart of that timo
I had it vory bad, and I was at considerable expense trying to gut relief; but
this excellent medicine was the first and
only relief I received."
Dr. Elizabeth H. Bradley, of London, a leader in the social purity movement, who' lately addressed a Chicago
audience under the auspices of the
W. C. T. U., says to mothers: "Don't
let your daughter marry a man to
save htm." This is not Christian sentimentality, it is better—it iB Christian expediency. A pure woman is
worth a legion of corrupted men.
 m    t   ——
People WkoRbad and Reflect, after
reading, upon the many published testimonials regarding Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptio Cure,
can scarcely fail to perceive that evidence
so positive and concurrent could not be
adduced in behalf of a remedy of doubtful efficacy. /The facts proven by such
evidence are that it roots out impurities
of the blood, restores digestion, enriches
the circulation, and regulates the bowels
and Uver.
