win have uutone railway line and
one lin.ej.,o| telegraph. Just aa the
big fiah swallow tfie little fish the
big rail way. and telegraph corpora
tions swallow the smaller ones. The
Canadian Pacifio Company is gradually getting all the railways and
telegraphs into its capacious maw,
and by and bye the country will be
at the mercy of this gigantic monopoly. When the country dealt so
liberally by the Canadian Pacifio
Company it did not suppose it was
calling into existence a Frankenstein which one day it would be
unable to control; but this is evidently what is in store. Monopo
lies are good things for those who
control them, but good for the
publio they ara not. Competition
is the ljfe of trade and a guarantee that the consumers will get fair
Slay. When the Canadian Pacific
as absorbed all the railway and
telegraph lines in the country our
parliament will wake up and protest. But it will then be too late.

Abolish Revolvers.
Another shooting by accident case
comes, this time, from New Brunswick. We have no means of know-
ing how many lives are annually
sacrificed to the revolver Moloch,
but they must be a great many.
Not only by accidental shooting,
but- of malice aforethought. Half
the murders that are committed
would be avoided if it were not that
in each caso the murderer hud a revolver handy. There is ail immense
temptation to nn angry man who is
getting the worst of a dispute, to
obtain command of the situation
by using his revolver. It is a temptation yielded to by many men who
ought to know botter; it is irresistible to men of the uneducated semi-
oriininal ones, of which theru ore,
always have been, and until tlio mil-
lenium comes, always will be, a
large number in every city and a
fan' proportion in other places, This
evil is one of the few tliat may be
remedied without difficulty. There
is no valid reason for any oue in
civil lifo owning a revolver. For
whose convenience is thc practice
permitted) There is no good use for
for the) pistol perform. In 1)99 cases
out of a thousand it is carried by
a man who is half' rowdy and half
something thn, in the expectation
that he will become involved in a
row, and require a revolver to get
the better of his adversary. The
convenience of this olass iB nob entitled to consideration. It is carried also by men who fear that
sooner or. later they will some into
conflict with the police and who do
not intend to let the life of a police
man stand between them and es
cape. The convenience of this
class is oertainly not to be considered. It is also owned and left
about by respectable householders
who have some faint idea that tlieir
houses may some day be broken into, and that in sueh a case it would
b« well to have a revolver about—
somewhere. It is unnecessary to
aay that it is in the houses of this
olass that the majority of revolver
accidents occur. This is the clnss
that most largely contributes to the
infant mortality returns in their
connection with guns and revolvers.
We are unable to discover a single
reason why the Use, sule, and ownership of revolvers should not be suppressed by law. There is a Jaw
bearing on the subjeot, but its
oluuges are ineffective. Persons having revolvers about them when arrested in any unlawful occupation
are liable to a mild punishment, but
it does hot touch the classes to
which we have referred iu tlieir ordinary, avocations, It is a slipshod,
milk-and-water law at the best.
What is wanted is a good; honrst,
outspoken, unmistakable law, forbidding the sale, exhibition, or carrying of pistols without a liceusi-,
with sufficient power to magistrates,
policemen, and other properly authorised officials, to enforce tlie law
in a simple manner. Buch a luw as
would meet tlie case could be drafted
in an hour and should be introduced
and pwsed without any delay.' It
is Inflni tely more important than two
thirds bf the laws that are annually
assented to by the governor-general.

Sitilg fritislt Columbian
_     jbJ  . —
.Handay Evening, January 17,1881.
Latest reports from eastern Canada continue to foreshadow a dissolution of the Dominion house and
tn early election. The arrival of
Sir Charles Tupper is interpreted
everywhere as an indication that he
will re-enter the Canadian cabinet.
Sit. Charles has been one of Sir
John's moat valuable lieutenants,
and has always been regarded as tho
probable leader of the party in the
event of Sir John's retirement, ft
was also stated long ago as a probability that when Sir John retired he
would take the place of Sir Charles
as representative of Canada in London, and that Sir John had this in
view when he spent so much money
in establishing the otlice and surrounding it with such an array of
privileges and feathers. Both parties are preparing for a contest in
she east.
A letter in the Columbian says
that the Dominion government in
calling for tenders for the erection
qf a. laundry and a bake house at
the penitentiary has made private
arrangements with the Boyal City
Planing Mill Company for supplying the contractor with lumber,
shingles, doors and sash. As the
writer of the letter remarks it is an
unusual proceeding. The writer
should not content himself with
merely writing to the papers but
communicate with headquarters
when the real facts concerning the
matter would be disclosed. We are
inclined to think there roust be
tome mistake or some misleading
representations have been made to
the government.—Vancouver UeraM.
Wehave examined the specifications,
and find that there was no mistake
on the part of our correspondent.
The government, according to these
specifications, supplies the lumber
for the contract, but it must be
hauled from the Boyal City Planing
Mills by the contractor. We have
heard no explanation of this remarkable clause in the specifications,
and without an explanation it certainly wears an appearance of unfairness.
Ajfiise oElerolsii.
An incident in connection with
the burning of the Arlington Hotel
on Saturday morning should not be
forgotton. We refer to the heroio
conduct of Mr. J. J. Owens, who
gave the alarm in tho house and
aroused the inmates. Fortunately
this man had not gone to sleep. He-
wag' a lodger at the hotel, and was
juat returning to his lodgings when
the fire broke out. . In his room he
had money and valuables worth
about $80Q. Instead of securing
this property first and then doing
what he could to save the persons
and property of the others, Owens
first obeyed his heroic impulse, and,
forgetful of his own personal inter
ests, turned his attention to the humane work of saving life. He
went to the door of every room
where he knew a fellow being to be,
and made sure that every inmate of
the house was awake. Not only
this, but he directed thom how to
escape by the rear of the building,
ai the front stairs were enveloped
in flames and could not be used
without the greatest risk. When
he had accomplished his disinterested and humane task, Owens had
himself to flee from the burning
building, as the fire by that time
had gained such headway as to
make it impossible for bim to save
his own effects. It is the opinion
of til who know the circumstances
that a majority of the inmates of
the Arlington are indebted for their
lives to the heroic conduct of this
man, and that opinion wus fully
concurred in' by the coroner's jury
who embodied it in its verdict The
Arlington was tn old wooden building, and in less than half an hour
from the breaking out of the first
flames it was a heap of smouldering
ruinj, If the fire had fairly got
possession of the hallways upstairs
before ihe lodgers got out, their fate
would have been sealed; for there
would be no means of escape except
by the - windows, and the choice
would lie between death by fire and
death by jumping to the ground.
The inmates, therefore, feel that
they owe their escape to the unselfish heroism of Mr. Owens, and it
is t kind, of heroism that ought not
to post' without some public recognition. It is no less heroic tban
the tot qf the man who braves the
danger of waves and storm to rescue the shipwrecked mariner, tnd it
is no less deserving of commendation tnd reward. It has been sug
gated thtt publie appreciation of
Mr. Owens' conduct should be
marked by some public testimonial;
tnd at hit loss by the fire was considerable, tnd was caused by his de-
sire to uive the lives of his fellows,
perhaps the testimonial might properly Wke the ihtpe of a publio
punt. We tre hetrtily in »ym-
pathy with the suggeetion, and hope
thr public-spiritesT people of this
city tnd. province will take it up
with (he enthusittm the oircum
stances oujjht to Inapire.

GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
milB AIM OF "ORIP" Is to sot forth, in
JL in un tiiipmlliil-mil Independent manner, the passing events of Canudlnn political nmi Niwhil Hfo. Its ('urinous sp'fiik
more definitely and more pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, aud nrtlstle stylo
of proseuiiiiga subject, tne whole situation is revealed at n glance. The success
of Grip shows how well this tnet.in appreciated—Its Cartoons ou tho paHslhg political events of the eotiiitrv being even
more eagerly sought nfter than the chaste
aud huinoruuHletter-prcKHof the paper,—
though tlio latter Ih equal to that or any
similar publication on ihe continent.
The publisher* of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for itm. The old
cover Is to be discarded, Hnd the journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
Rnpor.~eY.er.Y number belngsoartistically
executed as to compare favorably wltn
the best papers on tho continent. The
ndvtd, will bo compressed nnd more systematically arranged; while similar Improvements will be miida as to the letterpress. A now and hundsome design will
adorn tho titlo page; while tin. Cartooni
will certainly not sudor from extensive

(Continued from Fi-idny's Daily.)
Tho people grew restive uuder continued neglect nnd lack of attention to
their petitions, and sovoral letters appeared iu tho eastern presa severely
censuring the authorities. One of
thom, written in 1850, goes on to say:
"Not n trail, road, or bridge, has yet
beou begun; hundreds, nay thousands
of good hardy men have left the colony.
They wanted land, but they wore told
thoy could not pro-ounit or squat on
them until tho lands wore brought into
tho market. Thus the very nien wo
most required to settle np the country
were discouraged and' compelled to
leave. Every aet bf our provisional
government seems to bo studied towards driving away all Canadians and
Provinciolists. Every work wus given
oqt privately to Americans, without
the least notice of such works being
required. We have known men to fix
upon some plot of land and commence
improvement, who have been threatened with tho law, and had processes
of servico of notice to quit, or suffer
the utmost rigor if persisted in. We
require men of good political understanding to nssist in 'forming and
carrying out agoodgovernment; then,
in a few years, British Columbia will
hold a position second to none of the
fail- provinces of British Nortii America. Let them be men with means.
Hero is a good.Sold for profitable investment. The winters ure mild and
well adapted to the raising of stock.
Tho early spring, tlie clear, blue sky,
tho gentle breeze, und mild bright sun,
and genial showers, all speak for this
colony a happy clime. The soil in
many plaoos is very rioh, nnd thero is
more good land in the vioinity of
^ueonsborough thau nnVime at first
sight would imagine. Our minerals,
fish, and our forests all speak strongly
for our colony's future greatness and
prosperity. All we need now is to
have a good liberal govornmont, that
will respect tho people's rights. We
nsk no more, nor will we be contented
with leas': ln the future this is to be
the great center of tho British possessions. The Indies, China, Japan, Australia, oud tho innumerable- westward
possessions, as well as the oast will
contribute to our greatness and prosperity by thoir concentration of trade
at this point. May wo not reasonably
oipect, that at no distant 'day., (he
whole of the British North American
provinces will bo oonfede-Jted and tho
Grand Trunk railroad will reach from
the
ATLANTIC TO TIIE PACINI'
bringing England within serente.n
days travel; and a line of steamers
running to dura, Japan arid Australia making theae distances about from
twonty to twenty-two days.'-'All concentrate here. Is it an idle dream, or
ia it, from our local position, a reasonable expectation 7" This was prophetie
of tho 'near future,' and had there
been agood govornmont, or-men with
colonial experience at tho head of affairs, much of it would duubtloss havo
been accomplished before It was. It
was already a great mistake in the first
plaeo to form two separate coloniea on
this coaat uud it was a greater mistake
to make one man governor of the two,
tho interests of whioh were largely antagonistic, and moro especially aa the
governor's interests woro concentrated
in ono, Viotoria waa a frae port, A
family coining to British Columbia
hnd to oome tliat way, and learning
tliat thoy could live 20 percent, cheaper thero, many camo no furthor. K
thoy came here, thoy could bring their
furniture in free, which privilege wns
dirootod against business in thi. oity,
inasmuch as the immigrant would buy
his goods in the froo port of Viotoria
as they oould be sold so muoh cheaper
than here, where duty was paid on
thom by tho merchant. In fact, the
chief object of the administration nt
that time appears to have been the
hampering of this oity and colony and
the building up of our island rival.
Even our officials were allowed to remain at Victoria to tho
NEGLECT OF THEIK OFFICIAL DOTIES
here. Among them Mr. Hamley,whn
was at tho head of the customs department, was an honorable exception.
The picnicking of officials in Victoria
grow at last to bu intolerable, and a
memorandum was furwarded to the
Duke of Newcastle on the mutter.
The duke wrote the governor, Jan.
Sth, 1801, aa follows: " Being yourself governor of both Vancouvor Island and British Columbia, you haro
necessarily a divided duty to perform,
but the unavoidable absence which
this occasions on your part cannot dispense with the closer attention of the
other British Ouliimbia functionaries
to their duties. It is stated that the
judge, the colonial secretary, his assistant, the attorney-general and the
treasurer, are all at preseut residing
on Vancouver Island, This stale of
things must be put an end to at once,
and the gentlemen in question must be
warned to repair with the. least practicable delay to the scene of their duties, and if they decline to do so they
must at once resign. I am aware that
there may be, diSiculties in finding
residences in a colony just commencing its oxiatence, but those difficulties
must be overcomo, as tbey would by
this time had not the close neighborhood of the colony of Vancouver Island afforded ao eesy a menus of absenting themselves from tlieir posts."
The other grievances of the colony by
this time were legion.' It had presented several petitions to the governor to
be lent forward to the secretary of the
colonies, but up to the year 1801 no
notice was taken of them. It was resolved by some of the leading spirits
TO CALL A CONVENVION
to discuss and act upon tho situation,
and requests were sent round to tho
aeveral centres to elect delegates to it
This city elected Wm. Clarkson, J. A.
K. Homer, E. B. Holt, and Wnfl
Holmes; Donald Chisholm and Mr.
Thompson were elected for Hope; D.
Robinson for Douglas; W. Nelson fur
Yale; Mr. Deighton for Lytton; and
several others whose names unfortunately oannot be obtained. The convention met, and a memorial to lhe
following effect was resolved to be
presented to tho governor: " We, thu
undersigned members of n eommisaiun
elected by the people of BritmliCuliini-
bia, with the object of endeavoring lo
obtain representative institutions and
a governor permanently resident in
tho culony, beg respectfully to address
your excellency on theso subjects,viz.:
That the time haa arrived when we
ihould be placed-on lhe same footing
ns other British colonies and be entrusted with the means of our own
government." The convention nlso
drew up a lengthy memorial to be fur-
warded to the Duke of Newcastle, secretary of the colonies, setting forth
that several petitions had been fur-
warded to the home government and
that no notice had been taken of them,
and requesting that the Hon. Malcolm
Cameron be sent ont to examine for
himself the state of affairs in the colony. A sum amounting to over 91,000
was raised to pay hia expenses. The
following lengthy memorial, adopted
atthe convention, will explain the
grievances under whioh the colonists
labored, and of which thev vory justly
complained at that time: "The memorial of tbe undersigned British subjects, elected from various districts us
delcgatea to a convention at New
Westminster, British Columbia, humbly sheweth: That a memorial from
the inhabitants of this colony was fur-
warded to your grace through his excellency Governor Douglas on 23d
Msy, 1800, bringing before yuur
grace's notico the desire of the people
of this colony for a
RESIDENT    GOVERNOR.    AND   OFFICIALS
and for a representative government,
and nu reply having been received, it
was resolved by the people to cell a
convention for the purpose of once
more bringing these matters before
the attention of her majesty's government. We, therefore, the dele-
fates to the aforesaid convention,
umbly beg to c.ll your grace's attention to the dissatisfaction atill felt by
the people of this colony on account uf
the non-resideuoe of the governor, colonial secretary and and attorney-general, and believing tbat the people of
this coluny are fully capable of administering Iheir own affairs, and aro
justly entitlod to tho same rights and
privilege as are enj.yed by British
subjects in all her majeity'a dumiuioiis
on tbis continent, aavo this; wo beg
lhat your graco will lay before the
throne of her most gracious majesty
the sincere expressions of loyalty and
reverence towards her person aud authority felt by her subjeot. in this culony, and their prayer that alio will bo
graciously pleased lo grant them a.
soon as expedient what in their opinion is abmlntely essential to tho progress and prosperity uf this coluny,
vis.: A resident governor, whose interests, instesd of being connected
with any rival, will be thoroughly
identified with the interest, of Ihis
colony; a representative government
similar to thusu existing in Australia
and in the eastern Britisli Norlh
American colonies, the number of
British subjects in this colony pus-
seised of the necessary talents and experience being, we believe, sufficient
to entitle them to the privilege nf legislation and self-government. In jus-
tification of onr request we 'would respectfully call your grace's atttnlion
to snme of the causes of our dlssntia-
faction. Our present governor, being
also governor of Vancouver Island, ia
incapable of properly faltering the
progreaa of both colonics. He resides
constantly at Viotoria, making Only
flying visits to this colony. The colonial secretary and ntti'mmy general
also reside permanently in Victoiin,
to the great inconvenience of parties
having any buaineas wiih them, and a
las of one dollar head mutiny being,
charged on evory individual arriving
In this colony, all parties resident here
having business In Vancouver Island,
whether private or in ommtoti hi with
the government affairs, are subjected
lo this tax on reluming from each
trip. Every exertionisapparenily made
tu stimulate the progreaa uf Vnncouver
Island nt the expense of British
Columbia. Aa au instance we beg to
call your Grace's attention to tho obstacles thrown in the way of shipbuilding,
which important branch of indualy would
oi'o now have beculno of much hnpoi-tnnvo
to the colony but for the I'liormoua ro-
atriotiona imposed upon It. Bevel) .team-
ers intended for thc navigation of Fraser
river, and mostly owned in this colony,
havo been built iu Victoria at a cost of
about £50,000, Several of them would
have been built in British Columbia (in
fact some of the timbers used for knees,
&c, were shipped thence to Victoria).
Tbo timber from our neighboring forests
could have been furnished as cheap ae in
Victoria, but the governor having boen
applied to on the subject refused to remit
the duty of ten por ceut. on tlio machinery, iron, aud other materials for their
construction necessary to lie imported.
As a natural result the sliip-bnilding
trade has been entirely
BANISHED TO VANCOUVER ISI.AN'li
while tho steamers built there for the
navigation of our waters aro afterwards
admitted into this colony free of duty.
Nor Is any encouragement given to our
foreign trade; on tho contrary, evtiiy
effort is used to retard it and force us to
depend on Vancouver Island. The surveys made by Cant. Richards, of H.M.S.
Plumper, have shown the practicability
of large vessels crossing the har of Fraser
river, bnt though the governor has been
urged to have a light ship stationed at
the entrance, no attention has been paid
to this essontial point. The tariff on imports we consider oppressive in mauy instances, especially on the absolute necessaries of life, and oh grain used for pack
animals. The various other taxes subsequently charged on gooils before reaching their destination render the cost of
living very great in distant miningregioaa,
and throws the greater portion of thc
expenses of maintaining the Government
nnd making roads- to the mines on the
miners, while capitalists, owning town
lots, from which they derive handsome
incomes, and tracts of land, are exempt
from taxation. A tax of 12 shillings per
ton iB charged on all goodB leaving Now
Westminster, nominally for the purpose
of improving river navigation; but we
have no evidence of ita being' applied to
that purpose; and a further tax of one
shilling for fifty pounds is oharged ou all
goods leaving tho towns leaving the
towns of Douglas, Hopo aud Yalo. This
tax is supposed to be applied to making
roads, but it is charged to boats navigating Frazer rivor about Yalo and deriving
no possible benefit therefrom. The cost
of making roads through a mountainous
country is necessarily very great, und
by the present system it iB all defrayed
by the hardy pioneers who aro devoting
their energies towards developing the
resources of the country, whereas if wo
possessed a representative government
capable of negotiating loans on thc
security of tho colony, the cost of works
benefiting future immigrants to nn equal
or greater extent than the present population wonld not be defrayed out of the
current revenue, but ho extended over a
series of years. In some instances lnrge
sums of money liavo beon injudiciously
squandered, and contracts of roads havo
been given without publio notice, which
have subsequently been sublet liy contractors at much lower rates. The
administration of public lands
has lieen very faulty. Immigrants arriving with the intention uf becoming
permanent residents hava experienced
much delay and inconvenience in locating claims, while the moat convenient
spots (on some of which settlers havo
been debarred from locating on tho
ground of tbelr being government re
serves) aro claimed by parties connected
in various ways with the colonial government, who havo made but fow improvements and cannot bo regarded aa
bona fide settlers. Thero is no registry
ollice for tlie record of transfers nnd
mortgages, thus opening a fruitful field
for fraud and future litigation, lu con
elusion wo bog to call your grace's attention to the fact that the revenue of
thia colony for the year 1800, in thn
levying and expenditure of which tlie
people had no voice, 'amounted to over
$105,000, whilo tho population, exclusive of Indians, may be estimated at
7,000. who are thus compelled to pay
abont (37.60 each por annum.   This
HEAVV TAXATION,
greater, wo believe, than in any other
portion of the British Empire, operates
most detrimentally to the advancement
of.'Miew colony, especially where, as in
British Columbia, ao many hardships
must bo endured and national obstructions overcome. Being fully aware that
Her Majesty's governmont fuels a lively
interest in the progress |and welfare of'
this colony, and is desirous of granting
popular institutions at an early poriod,
as evinced iu the dispatch from your
Grace's predecessor to His Excellency
Governor Douglas under date Mth Aug.
ldfis, wo trust that y.u will givo this
matter your earliest and favorablo con
sideration."

From the Montreal Rtnr.
There is overy likelihood of litigation concerning tho payment of tho
policies of ussunuico held on the lifo
of the Into Mr. J. S. McLaohlan. One
company, tho Sun Lifo, Iiob pnid its
policies, but it is stated the othera resist payment. It may bo that the
matter will bo amicably settled, but
such is uot the present appearance.
Thero wns, as has beon stated, a total
of $42,130.70 insurance on his life,
placed ns follows: In the Sun Life, ou
his life $7000, with a bonus of $130.-
70, and an nccideut polioy in Uie same
company for $10,000, making a total
of $17,130.70. Of the accidont policy
for $10,000, $5000 of it was reinsured
with the Citizens' Insurance Company.
Tho Sun- Life has paid the $17,130.70
to tho heirs. The CitizenB refuse to
pay tho Sun Life, nnd the latter company will enter suit. The Sun Life
on paying the claim to tho McLachlan
heirs, took from tho three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 0 por cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S.
MoLnchlnn ever turn up alive. The
othor insurances wero 811,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co., $2000 iu
the ^Otna Life, $2000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund and a partnership policy
for $10,000 in the Acoident Company
of North Americu. There wus a personal accident polioy in the latter company, nnd when J. S. McLachlan loft
Montreal some time ngo, the unearned
portion of the premium was returned
and the policy cancelled. Tlie partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
the North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not n registered partner at the time of
his death. Tho partnership policy
wns on tho lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachhins, Mi'. Kndford aud Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the polioy was
payable to tho survivon. When Mr.
llrophy retired from the business his
name was removed from the policy and
another put tn his jiiace biitltecompany,
who never was and is not how a partner.
While tho Sun Lifo has paid its policies, thu others have expressed the desire to receive moro satisfactory proofs
of denth than havo beon furnished
tlicm. The Citizens' Insurance Company claims, first, that they were not
notified of a desire for renewal, and
second, that the premium for the aecond yenr, which began in Adjust last,
hns not yot been paid. The polioy of
the .-Etna calls for the production of
tho body. Mr. W. McLaohlan lias
written a lottor to Mr. Macaulay, of

the Administration or Justice
A letter appeared quite recently in
uur columns on thia subject which attraoted much attention  and  was the
subject of general comment.   It stated very clearly thu case of n litigant in
our supreme court  who had grown
weary of the delayB to which  his caso
was  subjected   and   who had at last
come to the conclusion that from ono
cause qr another it  would be' finally
'•■helved."   Ia it a fact as   stated by
nur correspondent, who seems  to be
well-informed  on  the aubject, thut
■'one-Half of thosuita launched in the
supremo court die a natural death, are
never brought to trial,'' becauRo of do-
lays such as he 1ms to complain of ? If
bo, the administration of justice must
be in a very bad stato indeed, and requires an immediate und absolute remedy.   The system  which prevails in
the  supreme court of  this  province
dues not obtain, wo think, in   thnt uf
any of the other provinces of  the Dominion.   In the first place, it is  perfectly absurd to find the chief  justice
and  asaociute judges of tho  highest
court of jurisdiction iu  the  province
alio trying the pettiest of cases in a
lower court.   To properly perform the
duties incumbent   upon thein as supreme court  judges would seem to bo
inconsistent with their attendance iu
the county court.   Here, it  seems to
ua, tho great fault in the systom  lies.
Ai lona: as the judges are asked to perform the dual duties  now   incumbent
upon  them, litigants in  our courts
will atill have reason to  complain of
thetylure of justice  beoause of its
longldeUy.   Looking at  the matter
from a merely sentimental  point of
view, it does not  well  comport  the
high  diguity of  a justice of the supreme court of the province to be also
compelled  to adjudicate  in  trifling
cues of debt or tort, which  in  other
provinces of the Dominion are disposed of by justices of  the  pence or
parish court commissioners.   The institution of county courts, as in   most
other provinces of Canada, wiih their
own judges having such jurisdiction ns
would not clash with the supreme
court or the small debts  court to
which  we have just referred, would
solve the problem and render the pro*
per facilitation of legal remedies possible.   Thero Is no  reason    why the
" small debts act," passed last session,
which is doing goud service throughout
the country, should not also beapptied
to Victoria.   This oity, being the centre of the great bulk of  the  trade of
the province, requires some such easy
and summary method for  the  collection of debts of small amounts.- Thus
with the supreme oourt, the county.
court and Justices' oourt, eaoh  having
its own  duties and jurisdiction, we
should not hear suoh complaints as are
frequently being  made of the utter
uselessness of " going to law." People
often prefer to waive their just rights
rather than take their grievances into
the courts, bolieving that after paying
heavy costs it might  be  months or
yenrs before the oause comes to trial.
By the establishment uf such a system
of courts is we have outlined theother
mattera to which our correspondent
refers as impeding justice would have
nu place.   It is perfectly  absurd, and
peculiar, we believe, to the  courts of
British Columbia, that " each step in
a suit can be hnd beforo only the same
i'ndgo who  has  the  suit in hand."
.qually, if not more, ridiculous is it to
await the convenience of this or that
lawyer who may be unable at the appointed time to go on with  hia case.
There are instances where such a courtesy  should  be extended, but   as a
inatter uf right ur of custom it is entirely incompatible  with  the  proper
carrying out of  thu laws.   Counsel
who have not a good und  sufficient
reason for their failure to go on   with
the suit cannot object if it is dismissed
—this is the usual practice.   Every,
application  fur    adjournment means
costs lor tne unfortunate litigant, who
uught not to be made to  suffer frum
the failure of his counsel  to  proceed
with the case at the   appointed   time.
Little blame can be at Inched to either
the judges nr lawyers for the  presont i
condition    of    affain.    Interlocutory
applications  might, it is true, be dis
p'Hed of much mure rapidly in chambers.   A score or  more are easily disposed of iu England,the United Stutea
or eastern Canada, while hevu all par*
t es think they are succeeding udmiru
Uy if ouo or two are taken up.   Thero
is no reason why this  should be.   In
eastern courts  it ia found   absolutely
necessary to curry on the  business of
the court as expeditiously hs possible,
and it is becoming quite ns imperative
hero.   The bench and  b:ir ought, for
their nun sake, to agitato  the  reconstruction of our lugiil   tribunals   on a
more modern b.tsia.   O'herwiso  tbey
will Iind that would-be clients  prefer
tf smooth ovor their   difficulties the
lust p/ay they can, or indeed not tako
the troublo to have their wrongs righted  lit  nll, rather   thau go iuto the
equips ti  be mulcted in  continued
heitiy costs, with a verdict some time
in the " sweet  by  and  by," nobody
c;iti toll when.   There are many "disgusted suitors in  tho  province nt tho
present timo who know io  their nor- |
row, nnd by the diminished  contents
of their purses, what an " interlocutory" Application in chambers  means,
but who tind themselves no nearer the
end than ever-' This growing dissatisfaction with the administration of that
jqstice whioh obtains in our courts at
preseut will grow into suoh large proportions ere long, if it is not remedied
in soiiie way, as to compel   the   legal
fraternity in pure self-defence to take
notion looking to a different  stato of
things*   The bench and   hm* of this
province need no words of praise. Tlie
fault does not lio sn much   with thom
as with thu syitcm, and   both would,
wo have nn doubt, hail   with  delight
snme euch change as we suggest. This
matter should occupy  tho  attention
uf the legislature at its onsuina aes-

'•Tonal and the Dairies1 Act."
"Tonal M'Byro" was, according to
his mother's version, "Her Majesty ta
Queen's man," but tho vulgar little
boys of tlio village, whose low-born intellects could not aspire to such sublimity, only called Inm "the bobby."
"Tonal was, or at least protended to
bo, "tu .piggest, ta bravest, ant ta
smertest u1 Her Majesty's men;" so
tliat when liis reports camo in to hiB
ohief, they very often made tliat official open both his eyes and liis mouth
at tho originality they displayed, but
ono of liis greatest achievements in
that line was just shortly bofore his
forced resignation,
Tho police had been ordered, under
tho new Dairies' Act, to mako an inspection uf the variuus premises, &c,
occupied by cow-keepers, or purveyors
of milk, and furnish a report to their
chief on the condition of the same.
They woro provided with a set of forms
uf report, and wore required to answer
tho questions thereon after thoy had
made a minute inspection.
There happened to be only one
place requiring inspection in Tonal's
division, and he accordingly, after a
groat deal of puzzling nud profound
consultation with his ''mither," sent
in the following report, viz. :--
