PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
After passing a motion for papers,
etc., relating to the proposed railway extension to Goal Harbor, Mr,
Beaven moved for papers referring
to tlio recent sale of government
lands at English Buy, Speaking to
tho motion Hr. Beaven said he was
afraid the government had done an
illegal act; that they had not only
soltl part of a reserve, but had sold
land in small lots or blocks. He
had been informed also that the
lands liad not been surveyed as sold,
which only complicated matters. If
it Imd been survoyed into lots or
blocks then tiie government had
dono again what was not required
and what they liad no power to do.
The returns he asked for, if given,
would furnish the liouso with all
necessary particulars. He had boen
informed that somo of the land Imd
been sold at §15 an acre, a very
different figure to tho provincial
secretary's valuation of $f>00 an
acre.
Mr, Orr had always understood
that the land sold formed part of a
naval reserve, nnd if his district
was deprived of this, tlio one naval
reserve on the mainland, it would
leave Esquimalt the only naval
station of British Oolumbia.
Hon. Mr. Smitho said when the
leader of the opposition was C. 0.
of Iv. it W, in 1873 he made a return tliat was very misleading. The
error wns that llioro wus a reserve
of 788 acres for u naval reserve on
English Buy. Thc admiralty charts
published so late as as 1884 did uot
contain mention of such a reserve,
tho only one being a proposed naval
reserve of 155 acres set apart by
Sir Jumos Douglas. Within tho
last few days action had beeu tnkon
by thn imperial government with
reference to ii small-portion of the
laud wliich the government had left
intact. The Dominion government
had been misled through their agent
hero as to the area. Tho original
reserve showed an area of 155 acres,
not as a naval reserve but as a proposed naval reserve. In 18S5 Mr.
Trutch wrote to Mr Walkem, then
chief commissioner, for information
as to this reserve, who instructed
tho surveyor-general Lo enquire into
the matter and make his report. In
this it was shown that there was ft
general reserve of 788 acres on
English Bay; that thoro wero re-
servos asked for by Admiral Bayucs
—one for 55 acres on English Bay,
anothor of 170 acres ou tho mill
property, and similar reserves on
either side of Port Moody. Tho
surveyor-general stated that he had
attached lo bis report a lithograph
showing tho reserves. The two reserves at Port Moody woro marked
on the imip accurately, while tho
roservo at Coal Harbor was not
markod at all.' Tho reservo at
English Bay showed a reserve of
788 acros, all of which the surveyor-
general (as he afterwards explained)
not appreciating the importance, had
marked red, not intending to indicate anything except that it whs a
reserve—not that it was a uavul
reserve. It was reserved at tho
same time tho Hastings mill property had been, .wliich was afterwards
sold to a private company in 1864.
Thero wns uo evidence to sfiow that
thc land nt English Bay was ever
made a reservo; no order iu counoil to show that it had been made a
naval or any other kind of a reserve.
In 1862 Mr. Wood, a civil engineer, was sent down to survey a reserve, und that was all the ovideuce
that thore evor was a reservo, This
survoy showed tho largo reserve of
788 acres and inside was shown a
small area marked "naval rosorvo,"
plainly indicating the distinction,
lie did uot think it hnd over heen
contended that tlio Dominion government had any claim to this property undor clause 10 of the B. N. A.
not. The clause did not apply to
any lnnds in British Columbia; tho
contention that it wns ordnance
property he did not share. With
reference to tlm legality of the sale
which had taken place lately, an
act was specially passed last session
empowering tho government to raise
money by tho salo of land and its
purport was explained at the time.
(Mr. Beavon—No.) Homo of tlio
lauds had been sold at an average
of $750 per acre, and somo at tlio
water front at tlio rato of §1,000
per aero.
Mr. Allen nsked for copies of nll
correspondence relating to tho abandonment of any portion of the 750,-
000 acres granted to the Kootenny
Company.
Hon. Mr. Bmithfl snid thero
seemed to be a great misapprehension about Ihu uhnndouimmt of n
portion of tlio proposed grant. The
act provides that there should lirst
bo a reserve placed on tho lands,
and this reservo was to extend six
miles back from tho Columbia river
nnd Kootenay lake, Ono of the
stipulations was thu company should
havo the land on Kootenay lake
surveyed,    The time for the com-
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. O., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1886.
NUMBER 13
pi et fori of the survey on the Oolumbia river did not expire until 1887,
although he did not think they intended to take the full quantity to
which, by fulfilling the provisions,
they would be entitled, because they
hrd application that they be allowed
grants of small areas of land along
the Columbia rivor, wliich application he had positively refused.
[Hear, hear.] He believed they
hnd found out that tho land was
comparatively valueless, and that
it would not pay them to survoy it.
Of 250,000 acros which they might
have got on the Kootenay lake
they had chosen to take 43,000 acres
only. They had not got even that
yet, however, and would not until
they had complied with all the provisions of tbe act. [Heir, hear.].
At the urgent request of the miners,
just as soon us tho time limit on the
Kootenay lake had expired he had
removed the reserve so that the
lands not surveyed on the lake were
just as free to miners us they -were
before the passage of the Kootenay
bill,    [Hear, hear.]
Mr. Orr called attention to the
fact that the Kootenay Transportation Company had never commenced their thirty miles of railway whioh the act required they
should finish within a year after the
completion of -the Canadian Pacific
railway.
Mr. Semlin thought it would be
very much better for tho government to transfer the whole of the
750,000 acres to the company and
receive the taxes thereon. The
company had entered into the con
tract with their eyes opon and had
boen assured that the land was not
worth $50,000. One thing he regretted: Thut the attorney-general
had made such a statement at Clinton that tho time limit for the company to acquire any more land under
the act hnd expired.
Hou. Mr. Davie would not havo
mado any further reference to tho
statement attributed to him did it
not seem that his previous explanation had been ignored. The time
limit ho wns charged with having
mndo general whon stating it had
expired should have heen confined
to the Kootenay lake region. He
should havo thought this explanation would have been satisfactory.
Considerable discussion took place
respecting Emia, tho Chilcotin outlaw. Mr. McLeese thought that if
the reward was offered to the Indians, tho outlaw would bo captured.
Hon. Mr. Davie said the Indian
agent had been furnished with §000
with a vioiv to tho capture of Emia,
and he thought the agent's experience and judgment might be relied
on. The capture could ho effected
only by peaceable measures. It
would not be safo for any whito
man to follow Emia and attempt to
tako him.
A discussion arose upon the taxation of unimproved lauds held on
speculation, tho genoral opinion of
the houso being that when large
blocks of hind were so held they
ought to be subjocted to heavy
taxes.
Mr. Benven again brought ou a
debate on financial returns. Ho
asked for a separate statement of
the revonuo of the last half of 1883.
It was pointed out that the information asked was contained in the
statement for 1883-8-1, and that
the return would only involvo expense for nothing. The motion was
lost on a vote of 8 to 16.
Bills were introduced to incorporate
the Coal Harbor OasOo. and to amend
tho charter of the Now West minder
and Port Moody Telephone Co,
Mr. Orr again brought up tho mat*
tor of the naval reserve at English
Bay, nnd expressed thu opinion that
as it had boen reserved for naval purposes it could not legally he sold.
Hon. Mr. Smithe said tho proposed
naval reserve consisted of only 155
ucres, nud nut 788 as stated. Although
this 155 ncres had never been handed
over to tho imperial government, tho
government hnd no intention to dispose of it, but would keep it for naval
purposes, He beliovod that the ndmirnl of the station had been instructed quito recently by tho imperial government to locate 100 acres there. The
imperial authorities hnd never expressed
any wish respecting the reserve at English Bay, nud hnd abandoned all except tho Port Moody reserve. He
produced the admiralty chart of 1884
upon which there was printed a "pro*
posed" naval roservo at English Hny
of 165 aeres—not 788 aeres. He believed the imperiul government intended to fix a station for military stores
inside of Durrard Inlet, where they
would be less exposed than at Esquimau.
Speaking to a motion mado by Mr.
Semlin, Hon, Mr. Robson said the
government intended to establish the
following now polling places: In New
Westminster district — Sapperton,
Moodyville, Burton's Prairie, Surrey,
Port Moody, Lehman's Landing, Clover Valley, and Alder Grove. Ynlo
district — Ashornft, Priests' Valley,
Coutliu's, Luwor Nioula, Granite City.
Kootenay district—Fanvell, Winder-
lucre, Km teuiiy. Cariboo district—
Chileoten. Cnssinr district — Port
Simpson, Port Essiugtoii, Naas Kiver.
Mr. Sumlin moved for a committee
lo consider the claims of C. C. McKenzie, late superititomlcnt of education.
Severn! members opposed the motion
nn the ground thnt a simitar committeo
huh appointed and Mr. McKenzie refused to prosecute his claim. The
claim dated buck 7 yenrs, aud hnd been
rejected by two govern in ents. After
discussion the motion was carried.
Mr. Allen moved for a return of the
school trustee election nt Clinton,
On million of Mr. Drake, a memorial
whs ordered to be Bent to the Dominion government inking for tho establishment of a purcel post.

More Trade Development.
The arrangements so promptly
made by the manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway for u steamship service between Coal Harbor
and San Francisco is another proof
of tin* energy and aggressiveness of
the nt linage in ent. A lino of steamers botween these points will give
tlio people of San Francisco an alternative route upon whieb, doubtless, thero will be fount! not a few
reasons for patronage. But it will
likewise open up to the people of
the mainland a route through which
many articles may be imported ut
much less rates than now prevail.
Tt has always been a grievance to
mainland merchants that they could
not rely upon direct importations,
Sometimes we have had steamships
running from San .Francisco to this
city, but more often we Imve not.
Tlie uncertainty of the service has
boen such us to make it of small
value as an avenue of trade. The
subsidized steamers came no farther
than Victoria, and by costly experience every mainland trader knows
that -whenever goods have to be
transhipped at Victorin a very Iqrgii
addition goeb on the bill of charges.
But a'line of steamers tn Coal Harbor will enable our merchants to
lay down San Fran "ico goods ut
this city us cheaply an thoy are laid
down at Victoiin, and our advantages of river nnd railway traffic
are such as no other eity in the
country possesses. Jt will be remembered that some years ttgo a
charter was obtained from the provincial government for a railway
from the southern boundary to connect with tlio 0. P. R. at- this eity.
But the charter was disallowed at
Ottawa, nntl when Sir Alexander
Campbell was interviewed here it
eatne out that he and the government
had been stuffed by Victoria people
with the notion that tho boundary
railway would take away traffic
from the C. P. R. Tlie absurdity
of such a notion was pointed out in
these columns, but, nevertheless,
the charter would not be allowed.
Now the action of tho syndicate in
securing connection with San Fran
cisco makes manifest the absolute
folly of tite plea upon which this
charter was disallowed. At San
Francisco there nro two transcontinental railways extremely anxious
to compete for the overland trade,
and the establishment of a steamship line between the C, P. R. terminus and the termini of these
railways, according to the reasoning of the Dominion government,
would draw trade from the Canadian line instead of acting as a
feeder to it! But the syndicate
knows better, It knows that the
C. P. R. is the shortest and most
economical railway across the continent, and that it is able to compete
successfully with any other road for
through traffic. Tf it did not know
this, it would certainly not concern
itself about connection with San
Francisco. We repeat, that a line
of railway as proposed from the
boundary to connect with the C. P,
H. at this city would not take trade
uway from the Canadian road, but
would bring to it a large share of
the trade of Washington Territory.
The people south of the boundary
are looking anxiously for thc construction of this rond, for the reason
that they expect it to become the
avenue through which their trallic
will be carried on. They Imve given
up the hope of (hiding tin outlet, nt
least for many years to come,
through their own railways, and as
the Canadian Pacilic is the nearest
to them nnd thc shortest, they are
sure to become its patrons. If the
syndicate intends to persevere
the aggressive policy indicated by
its bid for tlw San Francisco trade,
and for the trade of Minneapolis, it
will certainly take the necessary
steps also to bring within its reach
the growing trade of northern
Washington Territory.
iiml at by which the Canadian t'acifio
will he extended by thu western syndicate from Algoma to Sault Ste. Marie,
whence a direct line to Minneapolis is
building. While hero the Minneapolis
gentlemen made all the necessary arrange,
menu witli tlie Bank of Montreal for
the nionetnrv assistance required, and
by the fall of 1880 Montreal and Minneapolis will be iti direct communication
via the Canadian Pacifio. This will give
Minneapolis a shorter litie to the seaboard by 400 miles than any existing,
witli Mcii-h-eiil us its summer point, and
the choice of the United States and
maritime province ports for ita winter
shipments to Europe.

Santa Rosa. Feb. fl—A committee,
consisting of fifteen of our lending eiti-
kciis, winch was appointed at the unti-
Cliiuesc meeting held in this city to devise some menus of expelling tlie Chinese
from thu vicinity, visited all China
houses this afternoon antl informed the
proprietors that after March lat the people would refuse to patronize or employ
them in any manner, nor would they
purchase in any form the products of
Chinese labor.
Sax FiiAXi'tsei), Feb. !).—A visit to
Chinatown shows a most dcnresscil condition of affairs among its Inhabitants.
Never was there less apparent business
doing ut tho various stores than now,
The recent heavy iuilux of boycotted
Chinamen from outside sections, driven
here bv the actiou of the white population* is adding daily to the pagan's hard
times, The different, companies have
their hands full in providing even the
most meagre food for tho hungry hordes.
Au intelligent Chinaman said, "The end
of the business will bo, I think, that existing treaties between the two countries
will bo abrogated and the limit of tlio
term of years fixed for thc return of the
Chinese in America to their own country,
in d couple of months.
London, Feb. O.—The first important
onBo under the Giles' protection act came
up for trial yesterday Tho defendant
is Louisa Hart, a wealthy procuress, who
occupies a lurge house in Chelsea. The
Ta'! Mull Gazelle describes the house as
a "child's brothoL" The defendant is
charged with having procured Hosa
Spires, aged fifteen years, and Florence
Hii'lmrdson. aged thirteen years. i Flor-
eiu.o gave her evidence at the trial yesterday. She testified that Rosa Spirts
mot her and showed her an invitation to
take tea at Louisa Hart's house. The
children went to tho house, and after tea
they were entertained with music for
awhile, und were then conducted to a room
wliere they were introduced to an old
mail, respectable in appearance. They
were compelled to remove their clothes
and submit to the grossest indignities.
The details of the girl's evidence wore
revolting. The children made a second
visit to the house, and ou this occasion
met another old man, who wns also of
respectable appearance. Tho Hart woman gave money to the children nud instructed thein not to tell their parents
about what had occurred, aud to spend
the money on candies and ca.es. Tlie
court refused to admit the defendant to
bail. The Gazette asserts that if the prosecution is followed up thc public will
learn the names nnd facts disclosed to
the secret commission appointed to enquire into the Gazelle's charges.

Happy Hottentots.*—The annual
meeting of thia well-known and popular
musical organization waa held at the
residence of Mr. Jno. Fannin, Hastings, Inst Thursday night. The mooting was a very happy one, as, indeed,
all the Hottentot meetings are. Capt.
Robinaon was elected president for the
8th time; Mr. Jno. Fannin, vice; Mr.
R. J. Hickman, conductor; Mr. W. H.
Keary, leader; Mr. Geo. Turnbull,
secretary and treasurer; and Mr. J. C,
Hughes, I.M.G. The funds of the
society were found to be in a most
healthy condition. Indeed the sec-
treas. mado tho comfortable announcement that he hoped to bo able to have
a fine new hall erected at Coal Harbor
in which the society might hold its annual meoting next year!
Whosk Chest ?—On Tuesduy Constable Grant found a chest lying in a
shed bnck of tho Telegraph Hotel, It
was a wooden chest, neatly made and
painted yellow. At oue end, inside,
was a set of drawers. It had beon
fastened with an iron hasp and padlock, but the lid had been pried off,
breaking the hinges. When the constable was about tu remove tho box,
somu Chinamen claimed it, stating
that it belonged to a man at Burrard
Inlet. It was taken away, and afterwards a Chinaman came and offered a
dollar for it. There ib every reason to
suspect that the chest has been stolen
from some white person and broken
open, and left in the shed whoro it
wits supposed uo ouo would notice it.
Tho box is now at tho Telegraph Hotel,
where it may be seen.
Delta Lodge, I.O.G.T.—A correspondent writes: "While other places

Supreme Court. — Yesterday tho
caso of McLennan vs. Cooper and
Stramberg was heard before Mr. Justico McCreight. The action ia for
9300 on a promissory note, and tho
motion was to set aside appenrance and
enter judgment for the plaintiff. Mr.
Bole appeared to show causo and read
affidavits from defendants showing lhat
the note was given in purchase of certain mining claims at Granite Creek to
which, thoy alleged, plaintiff hnd no
title at tho time ho sold them, although
he represented his title as good. Mr.
Bolo also called attention to the fact
that the case should have been brought
in the county court, ns boing a matter
within its jurisdiction. His lordship
refused the motion nnd reserved tho
question of costs, as ho considered the
caso ought to have boen brought in
tho county court. Messrs. Corbould,
McColl & Atkinson for plf.; Mr. Bole

Memorial Win now.—Yesterday a
very hadsome memorial window waa
put up in Holy Trinity Church. Tho
window camo from England, and the
shading and workmanship altogether
aro vory beautiful. It represents tho
scono of tho baptism of our Saviour at
the Jordan, and immediately bolow
this representation nre tho words:
"Thus it beeometh ua to fulfill nil
righteousness." Abovo nud below the
baptismal scone are two figures upon
wliich nre theso inscriptions: "Oue
Lord, ouo faith, ouo baptism," "Eoce
j^guuH Dei," and "By one Spirit wo
are all baptised into one body." Tho
window is placed in the middle of the
chancel, and blends exceedingly well
witli the other two memorial windows
thero. It hns boen erected by Mr.
I. B. Fisher, of the Bank of British
Coiumbin, and on tho lower panel ts
the following inscription: "In memory of Harriot Alico Fisher, died 18th
November, 1882; nnd her aona, William, died 4th May, 1870, and Andrew,
died llth July, 1883."

The Hastings Hull.
(Correspondence o( tlie Columbian.)
The annual ball of tho Brighton
House, Heatings, Burrard Inlet, came
off on Thursday evening last and was,
like all the predecessors, ti grand success. Notwithstanding tho unfavorable state of tho weather about sixty
couples wore present, and from half
past eight till nearly dawn the following morning tho merry dance went on.
The hnll was tastefully decorated with
flags, evergreens, and mottoes, The
word "Welcome" and the monogram
"G. B,," formed from sparkling crys
tola, had a very brillinnt effect, us they
reflected the 'lights from all parts of
fho ball-room. Tho space directly behind the music statu! was ornamented
with birds and nuimals, arranged by
the skillful hand nf tho taxidermist,
while iu tho center of these was bus*
ponded tho mysterious cunt of arms of
the "Happy Hottentots" — and just
horo it would be interesting to know
the menning of lhe strange anomaly in
thu composition of this said cont of
arms, How tho golden-stringed lyre
can bo made to harmonize with the
scalping knife and tomahawk on a
snow white field, emblematical of innocence and purity, surmounted by Minerva's bird of evil omen, is difficult to
understand. Perhaps it means that iu
time of peace or war, whether sunshine or clouds prevail, the Hottentots
are always ready with tlieir cheering
and inspiring music. The supper was
excellent in ovory particular, characteristic of "mine host," Goo, Black,whose
taste aud hospitality have given to the
Brighton Hotel more than a local
fame. The gueBts wero from New
Westminster, Granville, Moodyville
and elsewhere, and all appeared to enjoy themselves to a very high degree,
and tho utmost satisfaction appeared
to prevail. The ladies were dressed
liandBomely aud tastefully. To describe tho dresses worn would bu tuo
massive an undertaking for your correspondent. The music furnished by
tho Happy Hottentots (who appeared
to be in one of their happiest moods)
was all that could be desired ou this
mundane sphurc, Geo. Black, dressed
in Highland costume, favored the
guests with a Highland Fling, danced
with his customary grace and inimitable style, tho execution of which
elicited thunders uf applause. Altogether this ball was the most successful one of nny heretofore held ou Burrard Inlet.

From Surrey-
{Correspondence of the Columbian.)
During your correspondent's wandering in Hall's Prairie tho last week he
got hold of a few items which perhaps
may interest some of your readers.
Tho first ia the petition for a bridge
over Campbell river on the Coast Meridian road, aa an nutlet of Hall's Prairie to the oity of Blaine. It ia almost
a pity to allow the resources of British
Columbia to go to build up American
towns when we have infant oities of
our own to take al) the trade the country ean afford aa yet. If Hall's Prairie
would get a road through in good stylo
to Elgin and ship and trade through
that place it would be more patriotic
aa well as profitable.—Ono of our ex-
councillors is away on au exoursion to
the Middle States on an errand which
rumor says ia of a tender naturo, Ho
reports the temperature in that part of
the country to be below zero outside,
but we suppose the cohesion of loving
hearts inside will obviate any troubles
in that way. Rumor alao says that
one of our present councillors mnkes a
voyage now and then to the prairie on
an errand nf the aame kind, and that
beforo 1880 flies past we will havo ono
moro benedict in our midst,—Mr.
Fred Helms of Hall's Prairie hna leased
hia farm to Mr. Webator of Blaine.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
{Continued from lst Page.)
A discussion arose mi tlie appointment <>f committees. The opposition
charged lhe government willi being
afraid of committees, and tho other
Bide of the house charged the opposition with asking for so many committees solely for party reasons, in ordor
to ombarrasB the government,
Hon. Mr. Robson submitted tho following: Whereas, in an uct passed by
the house in December, 188!i, entitled
"An act relating to tho Island railway,
the graving dock, and the railway
lands of the provinco," it was enacted
(inter alia) that "thu govornment of
Canada shall, with ail convenient
speed; oiler for Rale the lnnds within
(hu railway belt upon tho mainland,
upon liberal terms to notual settlors;"
and, whoreas, little or nothing 1ms yet
been, done towards carrying out the
above recited obligation, and tho landa
referred to nro still for the moat pnrt,
practically locked up against purchase
or settlement; and whereas actual settlers who entered upon some of these
tinds in good faith aro still unable (o
oblnin patouts to which thoy arc justly
entitled, and tiro by reason of long delay and uncertainly as to their holdings greatly discouraged and hindred
in their legitimate operations; be it
therefore resolved that nu humblo address be presented to his honor the
lieutenant-governor praying his honor
to represent to tho Dominion government tho disastrous effects of the delay
and uncertainty complained of, and
urgo upon said government the duty
and importance of carrying uut tho
Bpirit and letter of their agreement by
throwing the lauds open to actual Bet-
tiers with till possiblo speed and also
by issuing, without further delay, patents for such of theso lands as may bo
bona lid-' occupied by actual settlers.
Mr.. Beaven moved for copies of
papers relating to lands in the railway
belt west of Port Moody. He expressed
a doubt as to whethor the ownership
of these lands was with the provincial
government.
Hon. Mr. Smitho pointed out that
there was nothing in tho arrangement
with the Dominion governmont that
gave it authority to claim land beyond
tho western terminus of the road, and
the government terminus was fixed at
Port Moody.
Iu reply to questions by members,
the following statements wure made:
Mr. J. F. Smith waa appointed teacher
at Clinton in August 1880. No debentures have been issued under tho loan
act of 1884; the overdraft iu the Bank
of British Columbia at thu end of the
year was §140,808.3U; the amount received for land sales during last 0 mos,
of 1885 was 820,832.55; tho Hastings
Sawmill Co. hus agreed to surrender
its claim to a strip of land having an
average width of a mile south of English Bay and False Creek, and in consideration its timber lease on that portion granted to the C.P.R. hns boen
extended two and five years at a nominal rental of 10 cts, per acre; altogether §432,172.88 has been received
from the federal government on no-
count of dry-dock refund.
After discussing briefly the counly
court uct and the act respecting the
reservation of points of law in criminal
cases,'Hun. Mr. Smitho, in reply to a
question, made thu following statement: Rcturna from Kootenay'ao far
as rcccivee make no particular mention
of revenue derived. Tho company
have surveyed the work for the lino of
railway from Knotentiy lake to the
Columbia rivor. They have also surveyed two blocks of hind fronting on
Kootenny lake, the aggregate urea of
whichn.1 45,57ft .acres. The company
are not obliged to equip or maintain
the line of steamers before the Slat
December, 1887. Tlio failure of the
company to survoy more than two
blocks before tho lat December, 1884,
tho time limited by thc act for that
purpose, cancels their right to acquire
any moro land ou Kootenay lake. The
official reservation of the lands upon
Kootenay lako and its tributaries wns
cancelled on Dec. 10,1S84.

Nome ((Merits and Suggestions,
Editor Columbian.—In tho lato civic
election in this city it seems that but
one-third of tho qualified voters availed
themselves of their prerogative. Is this
in keeping with thc -'eternal fitness of
things," or is it not? Can any good and
Biilticicnt reason be given for such uttor
apathy in matters which might be supposed to concern all good citizens? Cun
it bu th.it, with perhaps a fow exceptions, only those whu have axes to giih'd
will lake the trouble to vote atom' municipal election'.-?   Are tliere uo issues but
those turning on pbi-aoiiallticaandaelflah*
ness? Is it pos-ihlu that the majority
of the ra^payora are eithor grossly Ignorant or stupidly Indifferent i Assuming
that   there arc no  issues immediately
affecting their pockets, does the present
moral status of our town tickle the complacency of this valiant gang of Itip
Van Winkles? Or is there something
inherently immoral [i. e., in British Co.
ltimbia) in seeking for moral reform
through the polls?
As to our present minority-elected civic
board—or rather the members of that
board, severally and individually— I have
nothing to say (they arc no doubt good
citizens und all that); but I would ask
the friends of law, order, morality and
Christianity if they suspect the present
council, as a whole, of any decided sympathies with, or intentions toward, real
moral reform ? Have our municipal
councils in the past, generally speaking,
exhibited any striking inclinations in
that direction? Cau our legislative assemblies, even, show any better record
iu this respect? If not, why not? Simply this: not, iu the first place, because
there has not always existed a crying necessity for moral reform, but because
{and here lies the kernel of the whole
matter) those whose ditty it was. and
whose concern it should have been, failed
to onforotj their demands In the proper
time and place. If those who pray,
"Thy kingdom come" display a heartless
apathy or criminal negligence, instead of
exercising every legitimate means for
hastening such a happy consummation,
what can they expect but that the worldly, sollisli, uud too often unscrupulous
men whom they, directly or indirectly,
assist into places of influence and power,
so far from futhering Christ's cause and
kingdom, will iu ull probability put obstacles in the way of its progress.
Is the franchise so small a boon and so
little appeciuted as to be with perfect
impunity either shamelessly prostituted,
or (like tho unprofitable servant's oue
talent) basely hid in the earth? But it
may be urged in palliation of the indifference manifested at the recent civic election, that there was no regularly-organized or clearly-defined issue beforo the
people to command the attention and engage the sympathies of the electors. This
may he admitted; but what sort of a
"thing" do tliese good peoplo take an
"issue" for, anyhow? Do they expect
an "issue" to make a personal canvass
and solicit their vote and influence ? If
so, they need to ho informed that "Mr.
Issue" is not that sort of an entity. Ho
is considerably more modest than the
average "ward politician." No; an issue
must be brought out, forced out, and
kept out—and a moral issue pre-eminently so.
Sonic good (?) citizens may he ready
to exclaim: — "What does all this
talk about 'moral issues' mean, anyway ?
We don't wunt 'moral issues'; givo u.s
railroads, woollen mills, water works,
cheap whisky, and 'gas'; but these 'moral issues'—hang 'em—are too visionary.
We are too moral now." All auoh flippant objectors may here drop out of the
discussion* but those who can answer
tho following questions in the affirmative
may proceed a Btep further: (1) Do we
really want moral reform in our cities,
iu our municipalities, m our province, in
our Dominion ? (2) Have we good rea*
son for supposing that certain measures
of moral reform can be obtained, by
legitimate means through our municipal
aud provincial governments? (3) Are
we prepared to make moral reform the
first article in our political creed, to
which all other issues shall bear a relative and subordinate importance ? Theso
questions having heen satisfactorily disposed of, let me make a practical suggestion to the faithful few who have stood
the test, whicli is: that they form themselves, without unnecessary delay, into a
society or league (which for convenience
might be called the Moral Reforms
League) with tho avowed object of intelligently comprehending, incessantly agitating, and constantly furthering, by
every legitimate ineaua in their power
(hut chiefly and especially through the
polls) all moral reforms which they can
discern to be desirable and possible. Before I proceed, permit mc to suggest
further that, for obvious reasons, tho extension of tho franciiisc to women should
ho oue of the lirst articles in the society's
creed; they can be trusted properly to
appreciate and to exorcise faithfully this
privilege, if tho "lords of creation" do
prove recreant.
1 may mention in this connection, by
way of reminder, that our general election for thc provincial parliament takes
placo this year. The highest judicial
authority in the empire, has just decided
that the Dominion cannot constitutionally interfere with the right of the provinces to regulate their own liquor tratfio.
And this same liquor traffic—itself an
incalculable curse, as well aa the inevitable concomitant and chief factor of
nearly all immorality and crimo—is now
left in our hands (t, e,, in the hands of
the people of British Columbia, who, under responsible govornment, are virtually
their own law-makers) to "regulate" or,
better still, ueleoate, as wo may see fit.
Let us not shirk our responsibility in
this matter. Let us not be backward
about going forward I Surely we do not
intend to sit folding our arms until, perchance, in somo uncertain period iu the
future the Dominion government sees fit
to give us a federal prohibitory enact*
ment ? Not so did we act in the matter
of Chinese restriction! No; we were too
much in earnest to trifle there. We agitated und legislated, passing bill aftor
bill, only to have them disallowed by the
federal authorities, until finally wo gained
our object. Will any christian—any patriot—any sincere thinking man—say
that the "liquor question, viewed in
any and every liizht, is not of infinitely
more concern than tho "Chineso qucstiou?" Do we not all know something
of the enormity and truthfulness of the
indictments ngainst tins fell traflic ? Dare
any of us presumptuously question, with
Cain: "Am I my brother's Keeper ?" Let
us at least be in earnest and do what wc
can, if some selfish Interests do have to
go tothe wall. The coming general elections (both provincial and Dominion)
constitute nn opportunity that should
not be allowed to pass without some actiou being taken iu this matter, and uow
is tho time to begin. Let others express
themselves on this subjuct. Let it not
fail to be made a live issue in any and
overy political contest. This foul stain
ou our country's fair escutcheon, of licensed murder robbery imd vice, must
he wiped out. Let us hear the divine
exhortation ringing In our ears: "Awake
thou that steencst! Arise! and Christ
shall give thee light!" "Wherefore lift
up thc hands that hang down, and tho
feeble knees, and make straight paths
for your feet: lest that which is lame be
turned out of tho way; hut lot it rather
be healed." O. K,

The Anti-Chinese Klots.
Si'attlk, Fob, il.—An Olympta spocial to tho Posl-Intdlitjenecr says: At
seven this morning a mob composed of
about thirty roughs inarched openly to
uach China house ami took possession.
They stationed a guard iu each and
gavo all Chinamen orders to leave.
Tlio ringing of lhe tiro-bells scumod tn
be thu signal for action by thu mob.
As suoh hr poBsiblo thu law-abiding
citizens began enrolling ns deputies,
nnd two ringleaders, J, J. Hotzol and
L. L, Hales, wero arrested, brought
before .luatico Keady and held in live
hundred dollar bonds each to stand
trial for riot. To-morrow on call of
the mayor an immense meeting of loyal
citizens will be held in Coiumbin hall.
A hundred further names aro enrolled
as a law and order committee, Tho
Chinamen remain in Iheir dwellings.
Everything is quiet now. The Chinese
ttre anxious to leavo but thc citizens
are determined that force Bhall uot be
used for their expulsion.
Seattle, Feb. 9.—The feeling of
tho populace scorns to grow more bittet
hourly, and the outlook jb now extremely, ominous. Thc Chinese question Beems to have been almost entirely
lost sight of, and tho wrath of the mob
is turned against tho home guards,
who did the firing in yesterday's fight.
Threats are made of lynching prominent members of this organization,
which is composed of the best citizens
and the largest property-hold ers of the
city. This is true, in spite of thu fact
that there can bo no question that the
firing was justifiable and necessary,
The mob made nn attack and the
guards fired merely in self-defence.
The st roots are foil of knots of men
discussing the situation, and although
thoro is little loud talk tliere is apparent a deep feeling of the most dangerous kind. On lhe oilier hand, the
authorities are cautiouH but determined, they realize that it is a life and
death matter with them. Governor
Squire commands iu poison, and expresses a determination to fight to the
hitter ond if necessary. Tho militia
and homo guards nre behaving excol-
lently, but are utterly worn out, having been on duty since Sunday morning, with almost uo opportunity to
secure sleep. Unless tho government
Bends aid it is only a question of time
till they will be compelled to succumb.
Appeal after appeal has been sent to
Washington by Governor Squire, but
no assurance of assistance is given.
Troops at Vancouver barracks have not
yet received orders to move, although
the governor lirst appealed to the
president for aid on Sunday. Tlm
excites both anger and alarm among
tho citizens , who have risked life and
proporty in defonce of tho law.
Seattlh, W.T., 11 p.m.—The president's proclamation was received hero
nt 10:30 this ovening and caused the
greatest delight among the tired troops
on duty. The announcement that
federal troops were on the way and
would be here in a few hours was hailed with expressions of tho liveliest
satisfaction. All is quiot and the city
is thoroughly guarded, lt is impossible for a pedestrian to go on tho streets
without boing halted by a sentinel,
No one is allowed out of doors without
a pass or countersign.
It is the testimony of all men who
have tried it that "Myrtle Navy" tobacco has the most delicious flavor of auy
tobacco in tho market, and tliat it leaves
none of the unpleasant effects lu the
mouth which most tobaccos do. Tho
reason for this is the high and pure quality of the leaf, whieh is tho finest known
in Virginia, and tho absence of all dele.
terious matter in the manufacture.
The London Mob.
London, Feb. i).—3:30 p.m.—13y
three o'clock the mob nt Trafalgar
Square to-day was estimated to bo 10,-
000 strong. The majority of this
throng is composed of loafers and
roughs of the worst class. Numbers
of policemen aro present, but their
efforts to control the turbulence of the
mob has so far proved unavailing. They
have beeu unable to clear tho streets,
aud traflic is for the time brought to a
standstill. The spirit of the mob today is distinctly''aggressive.- Every
carriage which comes within reach of
the rioters is at once surrounded and
its occupants hooted, Imscd and insulted. During tho early part of the afternoon a gorgeous equipment was driven
near thu mob. Someone said the turnout was the lord mayor's and the
rioters at once made a rush for it,
seemiugly determined to tear the
vehicle to pieces and tramp its occupants to death. Tho polico, however,
by a vigorous chargo rescued the
equipage and its occupants nnd got
thom to a place of safety. Tho mob
at present is simply u tremendous mass
of undirected human savages. Thero
is nothing, it would seem, but the
want of some popular leader to prevent
tho mob from exerting its strength to
some organized movement wliich might
bring nbout tho most disastrous results.
During tho afternoon the police charged
tho mob twice iu full force for the purpose of breaking it up and driving the
fragments from Trafalgar Square, but
both efforts wero absolutely futile.
Tho mob would yield n little at the
point of attack, but bulge out in some
other direction. Tho police could uot
surround or break it. Each failure of
tho polico was greeted by the vast assemblage with cheers and yells. At
this hour the rioters are getting en
raged at tho frequent repetition of
hostility, and the temper of the mob is
perceptibly rising. Thousands of men
nre pouring down on the scene, nud all
pavements in the vicinity of Trafalgar
Squnro are lined wiih excited men,
rows on cither side of the street being
no less than six men deep.
Latkr.—TIio increasing gravity of
tho situation finally nlarined Ihe authorities, and they put forth all their
energies to suppress the incipient riot.
The police force on duty at Trafalgar
Squnro was enormously increased and
prepared for a well-dolineil and exhaustive assault. This, after a long all ng*
gin, resulted in tho pushing of the mob
Into side streets, and thus splitting it
up The polico followed up their work
aud drove each fragment of broken
broken mob until its elements were
dissipated in tho alleyways nnd byways
of the town. Evory precaution has
been taken to prevent tho ru-assemblage of any mob. Many of the rioters
have beon arrest ud. Homo of these
were fined and discharged, others have
been rotuatidod for trial, whilo a number hnvo been sentenced to imprisonment for various offences.
Lord Randolph Churchill appeared
at the window of the Carlton Club
building whon Ihe mob reached there.
He wns loudly hooted and menaced
with clenched lists by the rioters. Tho
most violent sets woro committed on
North nud South Audloy streets and
Oxford street. Probably 'J00 shops
and club houses are Bcrioualy damaged,
and abuut 60 shops pillaged, including
jewelers', bakers', butchers' nnd wine
ships. The military wero kept under
nrms all the evening, while policemen
patrolled tho streets.
The Latest.—Ou Tuesday afternoon a mob gathered at Doptford and
marched townrds tho city, piluging
houses on tho way. Orders wero ts*
sned to the police to hold nil bridgei,
und (he military trove kept in icadi-
nens for instant service. Tho mob
prooucih'd about ft or (! initio, and
after committing many doprtftbittods
woro diBper-ied without much dillicutty.
All shops on (ho route of the mob wero
closed. It is beyond question that
theso mobs nro largely composed
of the criminal classed und roughs.
There wits a denso fog prevailing, aud great uneasiness prevailed
throughout thu city. The vigorous
action of tho polico of South London
compares very favorably with tho in-
acl ion of the police al Trafalgar Square
and the meeting of Monday. Mounted
constables armed with cutlasses and
revolvers, assisted (he police iu dispersing a mob of 5,000 men near the
Elephant Castle Tavern A gratifying
feature was the fact that many small
tradesmen and a number of bona fide
workingmen joined in assisting the
police lo repulse the rioters, who dreading the encounter, quickly dispersed.
Tho police had been informed early iu
tho,day of the conspiracy ol thieves
inhabiting the common lodging houses,
to make 8001)1 London tho starling
point of a pillaging expedition, and
precaution wore accordingly taken to
prevent disorder. It is stated that the
damage done by the mob on Monday
will amount to §400,000. Tito troublo
is not over yet. It ia roported that an
organized attempt to pillage London
will be made by the thieves and other
criminal classes.
Delia Council.
Council met Saturday, Jan. (i; present, Hoove and Couns, Ladner, Benson, Sutherby and McKce. The uso

Ladner gavo notico that he would introduce at next meeting of council, a

the clerk wus instructed to roply to the
communication from the Surrey council and inform thein that the present

nchkeii slough roads. Couns. Ladner,
Sutherby and Arthur were appointed
a finance committee. The full board
wero appointed a road committee.
Couns. Arthur and Benson were ap*

THE INTEH OCEAN,
X Wi Mntllson SI., Chlenjio, Riots hi liOiiilop.!
London, Fub. 8.—Thc atarving mechanics of London to-dny held ti mass
meeting at Trafalgar Square, under lhe
Kelson monument, and it resulted in a
riot. The proceedings wero opened
with nn assemblage of 10,01)0 people.
The police were present in largo numbers, They at once saw that tho Socialistic element of London grently
predominated in the crowd, which was
nlso managed by a well-known Socialist. Conspicuous among the leaders
was Burns, who run as Socialistic candidate in Nottingham, in the recent
electiun. Ho sneered nt the polico,
and acted generally ns if he wished to
bring about a conflict between tlio
police and the people. Finally he ascended the pedestal of the Nelson column for the purposo of delivering a
harangue. Ho wns well uwnre this uct,
would not l>u tolorated, and the polico
politely ordered him to got down. Ho
refused to do this, aud appealed to the
crowd to resist interference with thu
exercise of pnpulur rights, Tlio officers, however, wero determined, and
they pushed their way through tlie excited and resisting mass, and hy force
removed Burns from tiio pedestal. By
this time the crowd liad vastly ntltf*
mooted, and the streets adjacent were
packed with surging mobs. Tlio stir
nv the elevated spot wliero the Burns
incident took place was easily perceptible over almost tiio entire area
covered by the concourse, and thc
sight of helmets and uniforms in tho
struggle was accepted as visible proof
of the commencement of a tight ngainst
the law. Thu intelligence wna responded to with a general nnd fearful howl
nud au attempted rush from till directions tu the point of interest. Burns
had now been removed some distance
from the position he had attempted to
occupy. Ho became emboldened by
tite cries of the throng, and made desperate efforts to recover the "lost
ground. He was so effectually helped
bythe mob tliat tho oflicers on the spot
were shoved out of the wuy, and lhe
omtor was soon pressed up against the
monument. He quickly re ascended
the pedestal, accompanied by a large
number of other Socialistic orators.
Burns held a red flag and he waved it
to the assemblage us a signal of his
triumph over the authorities. He was
greeted with deafening shouts again
and again. Burns now finished his addreis. He then road a resolution stating the distress in England, and demanded that parliament start public
works to uive employment and bread
to tens of thousands of deserving men
who were out of work through no fault
of thoir own, but because of bad government; and declared it was tiie duty
of the government to afford every
facility for the employment of British
capital nt home for the benefit of tlio
British people, aud to give British interests tho advantage over foreign.
Ho asserted tho time had arrived for
parliament to earnestly legislate for
the relief in the depression of Knglish
ngricultural industry. The resolution
also demanded the immediate appointment of n minister of cunmerco aud
minister nf agriculture, and concluded
with tlie resolve that copies should be
forwarded to Gladstone, Salisbury,
Pnrnoll and tho Board of Public Works.
The eliding of thc resolution was accompanied by lierco commont and short
inHamatory speeches by thu various
orators who stood with Bums. Some
of these orators wont so far as to warn
the government that nlthougli the
starving mechanics of London were
now attempting to draw attention to
their needs by quiet and peaceful_ agitation, they woro bound to get it by
attacking baker's shops noxt, if the
government would not come to their
relief. Burns, himself, in one of these
sidu speeches, denounced thc present
house of commons as a body of landlords fur whom hanging waB too good.
Ho also declared --that the pBOpla had
assembled to summon parliament to
immediately relieve tho distress of
Britisli walkingmen; that tho peoplo
wanted thu question Bettled at once,
uud peaceably if possible, otherwise a
revolution was inevitable, All this
aggravated thu excitement of tho huge
mass, so that the police reformed with
an increased force, and made anothor
asBHult. They succeeded in forcing their
way up to the pedestal. They reached
this point just as the resolutions, which
hud already been seconded, were about
tu, bo submitted to the mob for approval. The oflicers at onco ordered
the proceedings to bu discontinued on
thu pedestal and commanded Burns
and his colleagues to como down. Tliis
lhey refused to do, and tho officers
thereupon dragged thom down by force
and drovo thom from thc pedestal. It
was evident that Burns expected that
application of violence to him would
precipitate a riot, and it waB alio apparent that the oflicers immediately
engaged in removing the orators feared
an attack, but the men comprising the
mob were not in a lighting humor, and
tho mob contented itself for a time liy
hooting thc police and smothering
thom with flour, dirt, nnd garbage.
Tho oflicers behaved admirably under
this abuse and showed no resentment.
„ After ejection neither Burns nnr any
\ ot his colleagues made any further (it'i' tempts to get bnck. They at once left
I the street und proceeded to thc wall of
■ tho National Gallery, thoy mounted
' this wall und pointed to the doom nnd
I windows bitterly denouncing tho in*
I mates. Thia looked like an attempt to
< Bet the mob on thu building.  Thu mob
■ was excited but not up to a point of
l viulence. Burns and hi*, enlicnguus,
t seeing this, vacated the Reform Club
i steps, aud proceeded to tho Onrltou
i Club steps, where thoy repeated their
I tactics, By this timu tliu mob was
' tremendous in numbers and railing to
t desperation. Tho stories of what tho
I police had said and done in tho vicinity
t of the Nelson Column wero circulated
_ from mouth to mouth, and exaggerated
with overy repetition until the atarving
.( mechanics wore  convinced   that  the
I authorities had actually dared thorn to
f conflict.   Such a liro us was ready for
ignition aud within striking distance,
was inflamed by the ipeeobcs delivered
M on tho Carlton Club steps.   The mob
i was split up into divisions by being
f forced down different strcuis by the
police from Trafalgar Squnro, and the
J various  divisions started oil' hooting
j and howling, itnd challenging thonu-
! thorities.   The invaded streots wero at
once abandoned to the rioters, who,
finding themselves no longer opposed,
vented their ill-will ugainst woIMiouiud
people itnd against tho clubs, by Utorm-
ing the dwelling and club liuuiui all
along the way.   At tho time of closing
these despatches, all that-part of thu
city in the neighborhood of the Na-
I tional Gallery, Carlton Olub, and Re-
1 form Club, were in possession of tiio
1 mob,   Several faction fights have already taken plaoe among tbe rmlers,
and ■ furious mob is now (7 p.m.)
marching through St. .lames street,
Piccadilly, on the way to Hydo Park
to hold a meeting.  The mob is cursing
the authorities, attacking shops and
aalooni- getting drunk and irasihing
windows. On its way to Hydo Park
thu front of the mob made an effort to
enter tho Wnr Office, but turned away
when tho sentinel at thu entrance confronted the intruders with his bayonet.
Conspicuous among buildings attacked
by tho mob were thoso occupied by
the Devonshire Club, and that occupied as a residence by Arnold Morley,
the newly appointed Patronage Secretary. Tlio police along the route to
Hyde Park wero brushed nut of tho
way by the rioters ub so many straws,
and many of them wero terribly whipped for their interference.
Later.*—That part of tho Trafalgar
Square mob which went to Hydo Park
was composed of the hordes which had
tilled up Oxford street, Pull Mall, and
St. James' street, and moved northward through Regent street, to Piccadilly, a quarter of a mile away; and
passing around Regent's Circus, went
north ngain through Regent street, a
half mile to Oxford Circus. Tho rioters
turned here to the left, and went west
down Oxford street, to Hyde Park,
three-quarters of ii mile. This route
was undoubtedly chosen by the leaders
for the purposo of keeping thu crowd
on safe ground, as they would bo on
tho north Bide of thc Park. If these
mobs had gone along St. James' street
to Piccadilly, and thence to iho Park
Lane, it might havu run too near the
barracks ou the smith sidu of tliu Park.
It was that part of the mob wliich was
drawn east through St. James' street
to Regent, that attempted to enter the
*\Vnr Office, opposite St. James' Square,
but which whb Beared away. Arnold
Morley's house is in the Piccadilly
portion of this route. Tho liouso was
formerly occupied by John Bright, and
is well known to" many of tlio mob.
When tlie rioters approached the houso
Morley was iu. Ho loudly called for
help, and a number of policemen for
tho moment stood in tho way of the
mob, but finally weru swept aside like
chaff, and a host of desperale mon
rushed up Morley'a steps. Ho had
locked and barricaded the door, but it
was burst open and over-run, despite
his frantic screams and protests. When
thu invaders went away they left
scarcely a sound pane of glass in the
building. A great number of houses
along tho mob's routo fared much
worse than did John Bright's old
home, or the Devonshire Club house,
which had been previously attacked in
St. James' slreet. The attack upon
this building took placo at tliu very
beginning of the riot and was very
savage. Hatchet's Hotel is a laii/e and
well-known hostelry. -It was 07 and
08 Piccadilly, and when the mob passed this locality many of the rank and
filo of the hungry made n rush for the
hotel. They had it in their possession
in u moment, mid sacked it for food
and drink and left tho building badly
wrecked. As tho men were leaving
the hotel thoy saw a carriage which
had been pressed up against the curb
by thu passing procession, and was
abandoned by its frightened occupants.
Ii was seized and iu an instant broken
up, and tho wheels, spokes, shafts, and
other good nieces, carried away for
clubs. The Turf Club house, being iu
Piccadilly, presented a temptation to
the Hotel's as they went by, nnd they
smashed aU its front doors and windows with stones. All alonu; Regent
and Oxford streets, between Piccadilly
aud Hydo Park, the houses weru attacked indiscriminately and tlieir windows smashed. After Burns had been
driven away frum the Nelson Monument by tho police and hud spukeu
from ihu National Gallery wall and
Carlton Club steps, a savagu fight uo*
curred between his adherents—-socialists—and anti-socialists. The battlo
raged for some time, but the socialists
proved victorious and lifted Burns to
their shoulders nnd boro him aloft to
Regent street, whore with him they
succeeded in bunding tho crowd towards Hydo Park, Burns leading tiie
wholo way. At tho Park, whon thu
mob had all collected, Bums again addressed them. This speech was even
more violent than those before made.
Tho language was exciting and tho
whole address calculated to sot tho
crowd looso ou tho town. Burns was
followed by several other socialistic
speakers, all of whom did all iu thoir
powor to stir up strife. When the
speaking was over tht .nob broke up
into sections. The main body went
back cast along Oxford stroet, and
again affrighted residents along the
thoroughfare, not yot recovered from
thu panic, and tlie mob had the Btreet
to themselves. They smashed every
sound window thoy noticed, and wine
Hhop3 were broken into and their contents distributed freoly to whoever
wished to drink. Beer shops woro
treated similarly. Tailor shops wero
broken into, and clothes and rolls of
cloth thrown out into the street to be
taken by those strongest in tho fights
that resulted. Kvery person met who
lookod like foreigners, wore stoned or
beaten from the streets. Scores of
times policemen attempted to save the
assailed property and mako arrests, but
were every time beaten and compelled
to surrender the prisoners. In thu
meuntiinu sovoral thousand rpwdies
I'uimuned iu Trafalgar Square, occupying their time iu daring tho police to
come, and making rushes at tho con-
stnblus and other obnoxious persons.
In ono of these rushes tho mob overthrew two heavy granite quarters,
Tliese fell across Charing Cross and
blocked tho way from Charing Cross
railway station. The police made several most dospcrntu exertions to clear
away tho obstructions, but were easily
resisted uvcry timu by thu mob. Tho
mob held their ground so well at Trafalgar Square that until they voluntarily abandoned tho scone the entire
power of the policu proved insufficient
to clear the way to one of tliu most
important railway si.tt inn.i in thu world,
and space loft not largo enough for a
single carriage lino to pass to and fro
from tho depot. At dnrk lhey left
Trafalgar Square and went away satisfied that without huving actually collided with tho polico they won the day.
As the mob dispersed, its sections
mado havoc until they dwindled away.
The scenes which characterized the
retreat of that Buotion of tho Hyde
Park mob which went through Oxford
streot also attended the rot rent of tho
othor sections; and every street thoy
entered surrendered to them. At
midnight the police reports concurred
in Btuting, nover beforu in the present
generation has such n diBturWco
occurred in London.
