- sevft Misrepresentation.
In a leading article, on Moiuliy,
the Stanford, siwkiiig to creato 'prejudice ugainst tlm caiulidtttea running in opposition to the patent
'combination by courtesy called Government, says:
- ,.,;'As itti Opposition they woVild of
'course combine together to'effect one
common object, ".'(rich would bo tho
defeat of tho Local Government. And
when thnt was accomplished whnt
would be the subBerjuent course of
these people nnd its effect on the
country f A fair idea of this 'can be
gathered from sumo of their published
addresses. Frotn tlmt of Mr. John
Robson wo ienrn that any attempt to
interfere with tire location of the ter-
injnus of tho C. P. It. liiVes at Port
; Moody wotild meet with, tho most determined (oppoaition from him. In
other words he is opposed to the construction of tlio Island Railway, the
extension of the lino front Burt Alnody
to Bnglinli'Bay and tli'o steam ferry tn
conneut with the Island line at Nanoi'-
mo.
It is quite doer tlmt tho object of
tlie .organ is to .circumscribe Mr,
RoIjsoh's political iiifltrt>nce and cou-
Sequent usefulness by 'creating the
improssion that lie is opposed to the
''construction of th.- Island railwt'iy
■per ie. Nothing c'cliiil be more incorrect. Iu truth this journal litis
been a trier friend to that work
than either the Slniulitnl or i'ts mas-
tars. They have been willing "to
bake it a mere political stalking-
horse, and Wore is too much reason
lo fear tbat they have at last landed
it iu the "bone-yard," What we
oppose, and what every 'niun iu this
part of tho Country ioit and will
bpposo, is tlio Dottosiiios scheme for
continuing to "light Uunaiht" unlt'sa
she will undertake imihcdiutely tlie
tarrying out of it jltiiRriimme embracing unreasonable nnd impossible
things, and which contemplates robbing the Mainland of its just rights
in respect of the terminus. Mr.
Robson stands itv.uly, and has always
. stood ready, to support tiny feasible
scheme for the construction bf thu
Island railway, so long as it does
not trench upon thu rights und injuriously affect the interests of the
Mainland; but, as he has declared
in his published address to the electors, "it is quite certain that any
attempt to make it tt charge either
Uirectly or consequentially upon the
Provincial revenue, or to make it
in any way interfere with the completion or terminus of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, would nlect with a
Very determined oppoaltldn;'' Noils this individual or local sentiment.
It is the prevailing sentinlmit east
of the gulf today, Moro tlliiti tliat:

Mainland and Canada the scheme

It is reported that a tolograth and a

KITH AND KIN.
(CoiitlnnwI.)
Bernard, whose obiorving faculties
wero intensely Iteen, if hii range of
observation in stteml matters was limited, had becoiih't) aware of the hufjn
which hud fallen like a holy calm upon
the naueinblod multitude. Ho bowed
to Miss Danesdalo And stond by her
side", sustaining the inspection with
which he was favored with n -lark,
somber indifference'which was really
admirable. , The iiothers thought,
"He is quiet ariil-mtirved; anything
might be made of him with that figure
and tliat self-possession," The daughters who were young thought, " What
a delightfully lmiidsonie fellow! So
dark! Such shoulders, and such eyeB."
The daughers who wove older thought
how very satisfactory to find he was a
man Wh'a'ni one could take op and-even
bu intimate with, without feeling as if
enn ought to apologize to one's friends
about him, nnd explain how he came
to visit witli them.
Miss Paiiesiklc said something to
Aglionby in so low u tono that he had
to stoop his head and say ho bogged
her pardon.
'■will you iKitsit.theror S1Y6pointed to a chair cloiso to herself, which lio
took. "Randulf, does papa know Mr.
Aglionby is here ?"   -
''liypt to tell him," replied Uan-
dtilf, who was 'making tho circuit
of tho dowugurs and tliu buuutios pro
selil', and saying abtnotlnn^ thai, cither
was or sounded us if it wero meant to
bo agreeable to each in turn.
"Uf course ho plants liim'telf dmvn
beside Mrs. Miillcsoii," thought Miss
Daiii'jdalii, dniwinglicrsulf up, iiifiomu
anmiyofltJe'i "whon any other woman

liO.uliy t"
"I drove, I don't ride yet."
"Don't^ ride!" echiicd Mian Danes-
dale, surprised tUniust into animation.
"How vory. ...don't you like it?"
"Ab I never had tho chanuo of trying, I can hardly toll you," replied Aglionby, With mucK saint froid, ns he
roaliflcd that to these ladius a i.1an wild
■I'd not rido, nnd limit, and fish, nud

who *>dt opposite to him, under tho
wing of a massive nnd statuly niamiuii,
who started visibly on hearing her
child thus audaciously uplift her voice
to n mail tiii'd il stranger. .
"Curtninly thero wera>" lie repliod,
rupresaing tho malevolent littlo smile
which rose td hio lips, and speaking
with elitborntely grave politeness, "for
those Who had money to keep them
nnd leisure to ride them. I iiad neither until the other day."
"I bog your pardoni I'm sure," said
thu young lady, blmiliing crimson, nnd
moro disconcerted (ns is almost uhi-
vuraalty tho case) at having extracted
front any one a confession; even retrospective, of poverty, than if sho had
been receiving an oiler from n peer of
the realm.
"Pray do not mention it: No tea,
Malik you,' to Philippn, who, anxious
to divert tho conversation from what
she concluded must be to their guest
so painful a topic, had just proffered
him a eup.
"And du you like Soar Foot ?" she
snid, in hor almost inrtdtlibla vdtobj to
which Hcrnard replied, iu his very dis*
limit one:
"Yes, I do, excoydlHgly!"
"Hut you have hardly hnd time to
decide vet," mid tho girl who had already addressed him. various motives
prompted her persistency. First nnd
foremost wns tile consideration that ns
in nny case sho would have u homily
on the subject of forwardness, mid
"bad form," she would do her best to
deserve it. Next, she was displeased
(like Miss Punosdnlo; to sow Randulf
seat himself beside Mrs. Malleson, ns
if very well satisfied, to the neglect of
her fair solf; and resolved to fly at
what was aftor nil, just now, higher
game;
"Have I not? As how?'' hu inquired, and nll tiie Indies inwardly registered tho remark thnt Mr. Aglionby
was very different from llattdulf Danes-
dale, and indued, from moat of their
gentlemen nci) intuitu tiers. They were
not quite f uru yet, whether they liked,
or disliked the keen, direct glance of
his eyes, straight iuto those of his interlocutor, ami the somewhat curt and
imperious tone in which he spoke.
Hut ho Was, they wore nil quito sure,
tho coming mini of thnt part of the
world. He must bo trotted out, and
had to balls, and treated kindly at dinner-parties, and have the prettiest girls
allotted to him as hia partners nt those
banquets, and--married to one of the
said pretty girls—sometime. His presence would inilko the winter season,
with its hunt and county bulls, its dinners ind theatricals, far more exciting.
Pleasing illusions, destined in n few
minutes td receive n.fatal blow!
"Why, you can fltirdly hnve felt it
your own vot. Wo heard you had visitors—twd ladies,'' said tho lovely Miss
Askluim, from which remark Aglionby
learnt several things; amongst others,
that young ladies or posit ion,could be
very rude sumotiines, and could display
want of taste ns glaring ns if they liad
been born eonr^coiste,
"So 1 hnve. Mrs. and Miss Conisbrough wero my guests until yesterday, when, I am sorry to say, they
left me," ho answered.
Ifb! thought he detected a shade of
mockery iu the young Indy's smile and
tone, which mockery, ou tlmt topic, ho

Siltlirilnv Morning:, July IS, IKS'.1,
The Sand Heads.
Nearly the whole mainland of
British Columbia depends upon tho
Frasor rivor as the avenue through
which its commerce must pass. It
is our natural highway,mid without
it nil settlements beyond the coast
would he practically cut off from
communication with tho outside
world. In view of theso facts it is
of tho utmost importance that the
navigation of Frasor river should be
made as easy and safe as possible.
Thoso who aro best able to judgo be-
lievo tliat there are -110 formidable
obstacles in the way of our river
navigation. Tlio only difficulty lies
nt the Sand Heads, but tho Sand
Heads may bo navigated with safety
by ships o'f deop draught. This lias
been proved over and over again by
actual experiment, and what has
been done once' may ho done again.
Tlie trouble at the Sand Heads is
not the absence of water, but the
absence of sufficient marks to indicate the channel. Thero always is a
channel there sufficient to admit any
ship seeking entrance to the Eraser,
but if that channel is ndt marked
•out or known, the 'navigation 'ot the
Sand Heads will be attended with
sufficient risks to prevent careful
navigators from taking the chances.
There can bo no doubt but the placing of tlio buoys has been very much
neglected. Several times we have
had occasion to notice this neglect,
which has resulted in great disappointment and loss both to shipowners and merchants. It will be
remembered last fall that the marine
agent nt Victoria reported only 9
feet of water in tho channel. Capt,
Hayward, of tho steamship Victoria,
accompanied by members of tho Pilot
Board, went down to take soundings
nnd found over 25 feet of water
within 75 yards of tho buoy. The
buoy was Hot in its proper place,
that is nil, and instead of correcting
the blunder the persons responsible
'condemned the channel! It is not
more than two weeks ngo that the
steamship Victorin arrived off the
Sand Heads with 400 tons of freight
from San Francisco for this port.
In the face of notices issued by the
marine authorities to the effect that
the buoys were out of placo, and
tliat none except light-draught vessels should enter the river, the pilot
refused to attempt the Sand Heads.
The Victoria took her freight to Nanaimo whence it was forwarded to
this city at considerable cost. On
the 1st of July the small steamer
Hunt went aground nt the Sand
Heads, and on the 3rd the steamer
Princess Louise, drawing about 10
feet of water, came through the
channel without experiencing any
difficulty. There was water enough,
nnd there alwnys is, but the
buoys were out of place. On Wednesday Inst the ngent of the steamship Victoria received a telegram
from San Francisco asking if the
buoys hnd yet been properly plnced
at tho Sand Heads. But they have
not been placed, and the result is
the steamship will probably not
come to New Westminster this trip.
These facts are surely sufficient
ground upon which to ask an enquiry into the conduct of the officer
whoso business it is to keep the
channol properly buoyed. Tho people of the Mainland feel tlmt a matter which is of thu greatest concern
to them has been systematically
and persistently muddled, and they
have a right to demand different
treatment. If the present marine
agent in this province wilt not do
liis duty with promptness and efficiency, he must he prepared to take
the consequences, for our commercial interests cannot bo allowed to
suffer thus.
had left Alexandria, and Admiral
Seymour had sent an ultimatum to
the effect that unless his demands
were complied with in twenty-four
hours ho would bombard the city.
The British war appliances boforo
the city (fre very largo, and presumably ablo to take the city without difficulty. France seems to be in full
accord with Britain, but it is doubtful whether she will take part with
her in acttlal hostilities. To compel
tho submission of tgypt must be nu
easy work for such a nation as Great
Britain; but a new evil threatens
her in another direction. The Suez
canal is to bo guarded at each end
by war vessels, but through its 'entire length it lies almost wholly at
the mercy of tho Arabs. Should
they destroy it, which is by no means
improbable, Great Britain would
suffer most severely. Her communication with India would be cut off,
and her operations against tho
Egyptians greatly hampered. Already the people of San Francisco
are speculating upon the result of
such n possible contingency. Itwould
undoubtedly throw much of the Indian trade over this continent via
San Francisco, and add immensely
to tho profits of the American Pacific Railway.
Later despatches state that the
threat of Admiral Seymour has been
put in execution. The British fleet
ensued lire upon tho Alexandria
forts on tho morning of the 11th,
nnd in n short time every fort wns
silenced. The fighting was kept up
manfully by the Egyptians, but with
little effect. Ony 5 British soldiers
were killed in the engagement.
The Egyptian Difficulty.
There appears to be no longer any
hope for a peaceable solution of tlie
Egyptian difficulty. The Egyptians
seem to havo become infatuated with
a deep-rooted hatred towards Britain
and France, und refuse to comply
with the demands of tho conference.
They are engaged in constructing
works for the defence of Alexandria
whiolr were forbidden by the British
admiral. The latest despatches stat
oct that nearly all the foreign consuls

Editorial Notes.
The Colonist says thnt Premier
Beaven • owns proporty at Port
Moody for which he refused §30,000,
and yet he has had it assessed nt
$453 ! If this statement is correct it
is exceedingly discreditable to the
Premier. While assessing the property of actual settlers and farmers
at high rates, and charging 25 per
cent, per annum interest on arrears,
he cheats the revenue out of its just
claims by assessing himself at a
ridiculously low rate. The poor man
must suffer while the well-paid Government official goes free. This appears to be Hon. Mr. Beaven's doctrine.
The leading party organs ill the
east have been busyat counting noses
since the Dominion general election
held on the 20th ult. Both parties
claim a victory. The Conservative
claim rests upon the fact thnt the
Conservatives have a very decided
majority in tlio now House. Tiie
Reform victory is a "moral'1 one—
they claim to haVe reduced the Conservative majority from #C to about
64. The latest count gives the following result: Ontario, 38 Reformers and 03 Conservatives; Quebec,
13 Reformers, 49 Conservatives, and
2 Independents; Nova Scotia, 8 Reformers and 13 Conservatives; New
Brunswick, 8 Reformers, 7 Conservatives, aud 1 Independent;
Prince Edward Island, 4 Reformers
and 2 Conservatives. Thia gives a
Conservative majority of Bf), with
Manitoba and British Columbia yet
to be heard from, nnd nlso two eastern constituencies. Of course British Columbia will go solid for the
Government, and Manitoba will almost certainly give a Conservative
majority.
A frightful steamboat collision occurred on the Ohio rivor on the 4th
of July, The two steamers Sciota
and Lomns wero passing each other
at full speed when they collided, and
the Sciota wns Bunk. There were
many passengers on board, of whom
more than 75 were drowned. The
scenes which took placo after tho
disaster are described as most terrible and heartrending. Thousands of
people were flocking to tho fatnl spot
for the purposo of finding lost friends
nnd caring for the dead. The ncci-
dent is supposed to have resulted
from a misconception or confusion of
signals, and the officers aro accused
of being drunk.

Gentlemen,—Having been solicited
by a lnrge number of tlie Eleetors interested in the general welfare of our District, I allow -myself to !be nominated as
a candidate .for 'your Ituffrages at the
forthcoming election for tho Provincial
Legislature.
My political views are briefly as fol-.
lows:
Although independent of party, I disapprove ot the policy of the present administration, more especially in regard
to the 'expenditure of large amounts, of
the public revenue tipon the dock at
i&quittinit and the DeCosmos mission.
Iw'lIVilo what I can towards promot-
hrg'the construction "bf loads'and bridges
and the establtshiiittiit.of schools throughout the Provinco *"aild esmccially in tho
District that I expect tb have the honor
of representing.  .

dyking of the prairie lands.
lam iu favor of offering substantial
inducements to bouafide settlors,, eyetSf
one of whom should be allowed a free
grant of 1 (SO acres of land as a homestead.
Land speculation or monopolization I
shall oppose by evory legitimate menus.
I believe in Representation According
to Population, and would do my best to
obtain it.
In conclusion, should I have the honor
to represent   you,  my whole energies
shall  be devoted to the promotion of
your interests.   Your interests are mine
•and mine are yours.   I -tun one of yourselves.,.       v      ......

Gentlemen:—The numerous assurances of support which I havo received
from all sections of the District have
prompted me to offer myself as a candidate at the approaching election for the
Legislature.
I am opposed to the present Government becntisc their policy lias not been
in accord with tii*-) wishes ami the deli-
Iterate judgntehi of the people.
Their blundering mismanagement o'f
the Dry Dock Iiiib precipitated the Province upon tho verge of bankruptcy.
Tlieir DeCotimos mission to England
was impolitic and indefensible. It exhibited base ingratitude to the Dominion
Government ut a time when they were
using their utmost endeavors to fulfil
their obligations tu the Province and the
mission bus simply resulted in alienating
the sympathies of our bust friends and
has incurred tbe scorn df the sister provinces.
Their Land Amendment Act of 1878,
which plm'tis in tbe hands of the Executive the power of "eviction" and, ''con-
iiscation after only three months' 'Warning, hnd not a shadow of justification in
the premise—ltd possible pretext for
proceedings so heartless and so arbitrary.
It was a deliberate add unprovoked nt*
tack upon the freedom of tlie electorate
nnd deserves the i-eprohutioii of every
funning community in the Province.
If olected, 1 shull advocate nn cquit:
able redistribution of seats iu the Legislature; relief to repair the damages done
to roads and bridges in the recently
flooded portions of the District} the keeping of all trunk roads in repair at the
expense of the Government) the deVhiirig
of means to lift the dry-dock ii.titibns
from the shoulders of the Province; a
wider application of our municipal system, in order more economically and
effectively to grapplo with our much
needed improvements; nnd nuy general
measure which has for its object the advancement of the interests of the District.
I Bhall consider it my duty to support
any Government which may be formed
who, discarding sectional predilections,
evince an holiest determination to work
for tlio general Interests of the Province,
and shrtll endeavor to net in harmony
with my colleagues of tbe Iflstrict and
City, always, however, reserving' to myself tho right to exercise nn iiftlepfindent
judgment, untrammeled by the' pretensions of nny" individual or clique.
I hope to* form a personal acquaintance
with the most of ,the electors during my
canvass and shrill take pleasure in discussing more fully questions of local und
general interest.

cle'ii'tion for members to represent tbo District in the IjOciiI Legislature, and, ih doing ao, think it right tlmt ybu should be

1 will not support any oovkunsiknt
that will not justly apportion the revenues of the Province to the various Districts according to tlieir requirements nnd
the importance of titbit1 local industries.
I will entlb"vor to obtain a redistribution of seats ill the legislature in order
that tlio Districts nliiy lie represented according to their population and wealth.
1 will support any pmctical ami comprehensive scheme r*. prevent the future
inundation of the lauds along tbe Fraser
valley.
I will urge the transference of tlie Dry
Dock to the Imperial or Dominion .Opy
eminent, iiml if neither will accept ii aiid
complete nml maintain the work (is a
national one, then to indefinitely postpone
the work until the Province is iu a position to proceed with it. I will not give
my vote to expend one cent of the public
revenue upon a work of so littlo use to
the Province generally, especially as the
revenue will all bo required to repair the
damage caused by the late floods nnd the
construction of necessary roads tn this,
the most important agricultural District
in tho Provincoi
I will persistently urge tho appointment of a resident Judge, the payment of
Jurors fair wages' for their loss of time,
tho establishment at once of a Steam
Ferry at New Westminster, tho establishment of a 1 jind Registry ofiiee, and
increased .School facilities.
There aro many other measures of importance to the welfare of the District and
Province generally, such as the on'cour-
ngcmeiit of white emigration, the exclusion of the Chinese and,curtailing tho
privileges at present enjoyed by them,
that cannot be set forth in an address of
this kind. I will endeavor to see as many
of you (Is jiosslfile beforo the day of election, wTfen I will lie happy1 to explain my
viowe on nny subject that may be propos
ed.
In the mean time I would urge all those
who have a vote in the District to firmly
make up their mind to go to the Polls on
the day of election, as the larger tho vote

Tho conduct nf the Govoriiincut
niyjm In this oity during thu present
provmcml contest ia a most conspicuous exhibition of personal viiulictive-
ness mul iilpral ilupravity. So soon nt
it became kumi'if that Mr. John Hob-
son wniiW Do it candidate for tho representation bf this district, the Guardian opened tho Hood-yatcs of its
billingf-gate nnd resorted tn tho moat
cowardly stratii^etns with iiih object,
if possible, of accomplishing his defeat. THo organ had a legitimate right
to oppose Mr. Robson's election, if it
saw tit, nnd to discuss fully his political -.Virions and personal fitness for
tho position ho stdVght. .But no journal lias a right, either in law or justice,
to ni an-i fact uro slantlers .!nrf keep on
repeating tho' moS't contemptible and
groundless insinuations merely for
political offect, A man's character is
his snored trust. If it be dishonorable,,
ho must suffer the shnmo of his own
nets: if it bo upright, the enemy who
assails it with suspicious surmises of
possible crimes which lie is too cowardly to name is not less to be droadod
than the midi.'fglit assassin.
Iu a lato' i«sue of the Cou'mman
thoro nppearod ii brief statement of
facts letting forth' a sketch of Mr,
Robson's public chrc'or in British Columbia. There was no assertion in
that itifteiifont wliich is not abundantly
cii'M-su of proof, and which is not
woll known to hundreds who are still
resident in this province.    But (Tie
organ of a defeated party could not
pass by the opportunity for attempting
tho moral nnd political r^aaasiliiition
of one whose influence lie evidently
dreads. In his lust issue appeared an
article which, for mealiness nml n-im,-
inn.l -falsehood, has seldom been
equalled by any public journalist.
There are doubtless many in this district who know nothing of these matters, and some who mny possibly allow
themselves to be influenced in their
votes by tho gross libels of the organ.
To prevent 'such a Result wo propose
briery to notice a few of the organ's
slanflarl. Meat of the statements, it
may bo prQinised, aro so utterly inconsistent with ordinary probability, and
with themselvfeit, thnt every intelligent
elector will at oncot dismiss thorn as
slanderous nnd absurd.
The organ suggests that Mr. Rob-
son had a small priiitinf-,* plant which
would have been useless nnywhero
olao; tftal Tie burned it so as to get a
better ono; that he then made a "piteous appeal" to the people of this city
and district who, with groat liberality,
preBon**d him with a much bbtter
plant, whicli ho* immedintely took to
Victoria. Now;, .the facts (and' thoy
may ho proved ih a court of justice
whon tho contest is over) nro simply
these: In tho fall of 18G(t.the Com-m-
liiAK plant and buildings were burned,
and it was very generally believed at
the 'time that the firo was kindled by
a politicali enemy. Tho printing plailti
was j\ot a siriall one, ljut hnye and
complete--amply sufficient for tho
publicntiori of a tri-weckly paper which
was then issued. The Iobs in plnut
and buildings could not have been less
thiVi 'cfbubrd tho cost of the plant so
promptly supplied hy •> generous and
indignant people. Mr. Robsnn made
no appeal, piteous or otherwise, for
the purchase and presentation of tho
neiv plant wero arranged entiroly without his knowledgo, and woro completed before tho firo in tho smouldering ruins had been extinguished! Tlio
now plant wns not takon to Viotoria
immediately, for tho BmnsH Cot.u.m-
MAN continued to bo published for
nearly threo years after the fire, and
in its columns was fought the groat
battlo of the removal of tho capital.
When it dbd Mr. Ilubsori removed to
Victoria in 18*!> it was with tho fullest
concurrence of thoso who had coutrihu-
tod towards its purchase. Ou that occasion eiio*'/ man iii the community (except
two who had not contributed towards
tho plnnt) jntned in the following
address:
"To tuk HON. Jou.N* Romo.\\~Siu:—
Wo, the midci-niKiiud inhabitants of the
city and district df New Westminster,
wish to express to you-the ruyi-et wo feci
at your departure from amongst us. We

if wo wero to allow you to leave us without some expression of onr sentiments on
tho occasion. U'e would, therefore,
now assure you tliat although wu deeply
regret your departure, we are ot tlie
finite time fully immessed with its necessity, rind that, iu leaving us, yen are in
iio way forfeiting the eoiitiiience which
we have hitherto reposed in you.' We

with you on political ipiostions, tnke
the opportunity of expressing our sense
of .the ability and zeal with which yon
liuvo advocated any measures which you
have felt would be heneiidial to the p'uh-
!ie or to your constituents, and the attention which you havo given to any
iiintters entni'*ed to your care which

$iiil upwards of lfiO others.   So inucl
for thin slander.
The Dominion Oovenimcut oflico
held for fouryenrs by Mr. Holmon, it
Cony bo mentioned, was creatod by the
administration from whom he received
his appointment, nud abolished by
thoir successors. The change of Oov-
urnment took placo in the fall of 1878,
and on the llth of February, 187U
Mr. Robson received tlie following
telegram from Ottawa:
"The otlice of Paymaster and Purveyor
having been nboliBhod, your services are
no longer roqiiircd. Vou Will, therefore,
please hand over to Mr. Ciuighton the
nooks ayd Government property under
your charge.
tf, Bravk, Secy."
Tho organ cays ''{herd wiis an enquiry at Ottawa, aud Iluiic.it John was
discharged!" There was no enquiry at
Ottawa or anywhere else, and no Gov-
eminent official over even suggested
the siiBpiuion thnt tho iffijilfs of the
department had not been honestly and
ofliciimtly managed by Mr. Rnbsom
On the contrary, in tho sprititf of 1«7D,
whon Mr. Dowdney mentioned the
mutfcor' to Sir Charles Tuppor he received ,tIto following reply: "Iabolished
tlm offico to save exneuso^btutauso Mr,
Fleming' (chio'f ongirfecr) ropcrteff to

alio be monti-med that tfio offico of
paymaster and purveyor on the Thun-
lor Uuy soction of fho 0. I. It. was
abolfslrod nt tho same tune and the
services of. tho officer dispensed with,
There in nothing in the whole transaction ovor which tho organ, witli its
contemptible hypocrisy,' ireed ''draw

much as ho pleases and bring to light
Gvery* fMnsaotiuif connected with lhat

at Oitawii. Trie Railway ConimiKsion
appointed by the preBeiit Government
sat there for months enquiring into
every depnrtmont of the railway administration during tho existence of
the Mackenzie Government, hut even
they found nothing crooked in the accounts of the British Cdl&'nbia purveyor's office. Any man who was influenced in the least by honest purpose
would certainly consider it a credit to
Mr. Robson tlint lie had been able to
fill so responsible an ofiiee for four
yeurs and lea/e a Vecord against which
no breath of suspicion has ever been
raised except by the unprincipled slan-'
doror of tiro Guardian. During these
four years, as already intimated, he
disbursed about §1,000,000, and had
nccilaiou more than once to draw from
tho bank- on, his own cheque, lump
sums of 1520,006, but evory dollar of
the whole expenditure was accounted
for to the complete satisfaction of tho
department at Ottawa.
It is scarcoly necessary to add one
word, to tlio above statement of facts.
The irresponsible, hireling who does
tho loc-tl Guvernnidnt's dirty work in
this oity knows perfectly that liis ven-
ouimiB insinuations respecting Mr.
Robson's official ucts aro absolutely
without foundation. He knows that
theso insinuations uro thrown out for
a political purpose, and that they aro
intended to deceive those electors who
have recently arrived iu this provinco
and know no hotter. The trick is such
as no man would resort to except a
coward und a moral assassin—and tho
editor of tho Guardian is both,

To Hie KJectors or New Westminster District :
Cknti.e.m'kn:—I am a candidate
for the representation of your .District
in the Legislative Assembly: iind although most of you are doubtless already aware of my views upon the
leading*- public questions of tlie days
still it is fitting tlmt, in soli-'Uint; ydur
suffrages; I sliguld make a brief1 statement, ot" my political "creed"—more
•"■arlicularly'in respect of those questions with which the next Legislature
may be expected to deal.
THE   DRY DOCK.
The published reports of recent investigations into the management df
affairs connected with this-work, While
showing fi deplorable want of foresight and judgment, If not honesty, on
the part of the Government, amply
prove lhat a continuance of the same
policy would lead the country into
serious financial distress.
You wijl remember that the dock
was Specifically provided for in tlie
Terms of Union, and it bad no more
right_ to become a charge upon the
Provincial revenue than any pf the othJ
er works mentioned in these Terms.
Indeed, it was upon the solemn assurance of the Provincial Government
that the ddck ''would nol cost the
Province a dollar" that the Legislature
was induced to sanction thescheme
which has led to such disastrous results.
Upon this work has already been
squandered several hundred thousand
dollars nf j^yblic money which should
have beciivflifi^plietl towards the construction and maintenance of roads
and bridges and the establishment of
schools 111 the settlements; and according to present appearances; the waste
of our revenue upon the dock will exceed half a million before the work
can be brought lo completion, to say
nothing about perpetual demands for
maintenance.
It will, therefore, be amongst the
most important duties of the Legislature to devise some means of lifting this
intolerable burden entirely oft the
shoulders of the Province.
Chinese t.Anou.
When in the Legislature, ten years
ago, 1 was lhe first to direct attention
to what is now known as the Chinese
Evil. With great diflitiiilty I succeeded in having Chinamen excluded
from the political fi-anchtse. The
very party now in power succeeded in
defeating my efforts to exclude them
from the country; and amongst those
who now talk tlie loudest against the
Chinese I observe some who were at
that period the strongest opponents of
repressive measures. Had timely and
robust efforts been put forth there is
no reason to dout that, instead of a
yellow cuitSE in the form of ten thousand Mongolian slaves draining the
wealth of tlie country into the pockets
of their foreign owners, we should have
had a white blessing i.n (lie form of at
least an equal number of our own
race, helping to enrich ihe country
and build up happy and prosperous
communities.
To devise and applyta remedy for
this now universally admitted evil" will
constitute one .of the problems with
which lhe-, new Legislature will be
called upon to deal. 'Recent effort in
that direction has never risen higher
than political clap-trap and street-
corner declamation.
hep. nv ror.
The doctrine of Representation b\
or according to population-the ole
war-cry of Ontario thirty years ago-
Is one "which must com'mend itself tc
every fair-minded person, although
there may be citcumslances uiulcr
which lis fidl application would scarcely be practicable. The time has conic
when there should be a nearer approximation jo that principle iu British Columbia.
'Dining lhe last Legislature wc saw
l-M-TEEN electors in Kootenay sending 16 the House exactly the same
number of representatives that ei'ciit
HOxnuT.n electors in the Va'lfcy of
the Fraser were allowed to simfl.-' .An
attern'pt lo give your District sotne
approximation to the representation
lo wliich its voting power anil immense resources entitled it was defealr
ed by. the casting vole of a partisan
Speaker; and yet the men wlio perpetrated lhat. glaring act of injustice,
have the ^tssuranec to ask you for a
fresh lease of power!.
Such monstrous inequalities in the
representation of the country must be
remedied; and should 1 'baye the
lienor of bunt*; elected   as. one of
your representatives, I shall make ft
my especial business to insist upon
justice being done to your important
District in this respect.
FISCAL POLICY.
Through the laziness and incompetency of those in power lhe fiscal
affairs of the country have been allowed to drift into a condition the rer
•verse of satisfactory. The wretched
patclnyork of upwards of a decade
-must be replaced by something deserving the name of "policy."
:• At present, "How to raise most
revenue with least trouble" wo\tld
appear to be tbe problem with which
the Government has been wiestling;
and . tlie consequence is that, while
.(.ji**; ill ion falls with crushing severity
upo:.. farmers—the very class which
shoul I be most lightly taxed—the least
productive classesescapc almost seo':
tree".  „L   V        '. ■
T-Kat.'-h.is inevitable. Kevenue is
essential.., liut,It should be the earnest eiKf'.'H'"or. bT a Government to so
apportion t*\\*ition as that il shall fall
lightest upon the industrial classes,
and so expend revenue as tjialthepermanent interests o'f* the-, country snail
be promoted. The whol£ fiscal*fabric
of the Province needs reconstruction.
I't'ltLIC WORKS. ,,.'
It is admitted on all sides that the
Public Works of the country have
been allowed to fall into a condition
little short of disgraceful! Much
care and attention will be required to
remedy this state of things. A judicious, though not necessarily heavy,
Expenditure ought to take the place of
unwise and ruinous parsimony.
EDUCATION.
While believing in a comprehensive
system of state, education which shall
nieet tlie reasonable wants of every
settlement, 1 fee1, bound to condemn
some things done -tinder the present
system—more especially the provision
by which the clnTdren of-the wealthiest, and, consequently! l&aat' necessitous, community receive a free high
school education al the expense of the
taxpayers, while those of se.ulevs (the
most important element) aKe^n.piany
instances left absolutely ivltiid&t any'
provision whatever for the education
of their offspring.
ADMINISTRATION OK JUSTICE.     _
Judges are made for the People,—
not the People for the Judges; arid
the Legislature should insist upon
such a disposition of the Judges as
will most conduce lo the public welfare.
There should also be established
without delay such a scale of remuneration for petit jurors and crown
witnesses as will be equitable and just
to all classes of Her Majesty's subjects. L'.
ISLAND   li.'.ir.VvAV.     ■
. Through the glaring incapacity an'i
inexplicable chicanery of those entrusted with the conduct of affairs, the
Island . Railway question probably
never was in a less satisfactory condition than it is to-day.
While I feel assured that there is
no disposition on this side of the Gulf
to see those on the other side deprived of any possible advantage that
might accrue from the construction of
that railway, yet it is quite certain
that any attempt to make it a charge
citherdireclly or consequentially upon
ihe Provincial revenue, or to make it
in any way interfere with the completion or terminus of tbe Canadian Pa--
cilic Railway, would meet with a very
detcrmiiied opposition.
OUR FEDERAL RELATIONS.
While strongly ■■ asserting; the Provincial autonomy", it should be the aim
of c'ur_ Government and Legislature
to cherish and maintain relations of a
friendly character with a friendly Federal Administration, and avoid useless
and expensive appeals from its delibr
crate and authoritative decisions, as
far as is consistent with the just claims
of the country. To maintain at con-
sidenbleexpenseatOttara an "Agent-
General" wliose services arc of doubtful utility, whose eccentricities nre
liable to place the Province in a false
position, and whose extreme sectionalism must disqualify him as a representative of the whole Province, is,
lo say the very least, unwise. It is
contrary to the genius of our institut
lions and unfair to our constitutional
representatives in the Federal Parliament.
RAILWAY  MATTERS OE,\'ERAU.Y.
The work bf constructing the Canadian Pacific Railway, solongdclaycd,.
is now making satis factory progress
—although one class of labor employed
is anything but satisfactory—and there
is every* reason to hope that b^ors
the Legislature now about ;to be con -
stiiutcd shall have ruqitsna'turalcoursc
lhat railway will upan.thc cc-ntjnent,

Whether one looks lo lhe present extremely qnsattsfactory condition of
affairs, superinduced by a, too, long
term in ofiiee of unscrupulous men, of
at the not distant future so pregnant
with important results and momentous
possibilities-, one is constrained to admit that the supreme epoch in the
history of our Province is near, and
that it ever there was a time when the
services of lhe country's best men
were needed lo guide lhe ship of state,
it is now.
It will therefore be your duty and
your interest in select such represcn-
iatives as possess the ability, the forethought and the energy to place public
affairs upon such a sound and healthy
basis as will fit the Province to enter
upon the new order of things wiih advantage to itself and credit to the great
Dominion of which it is destined td
become so important a part.

such treatmout/blushed, rigain,-^'Cwlce

Philippa canto to the rescue by riiu'r-
inuring that sho hoped Mrs. Coiils-
broiiKh waa bettor.
"Yes, thank you, I beiieWshe is
nearly well,now."
"Do you know j-dl.the Misses Conis-
brouiih?" pursued Miss Danesdale,
equally anxious witli iftiss Askham to
learn something of tho terms on which
Aglionby stood with thoso lie had dispossessed, but Mattering herself that
she approached tho subject with more
Jiiiesse and delicacy.
Aglionby felt much as if mosquitoes
wore drinking bis blood, so averse was
hu to speak on this topic with all those
strangers. Ho looked very dignified
aud very forbidding indeed, as bo replied coldly:
"I was introduced to them yesterday, so 1 supposo I may say I do."
"They are great friends of Ran-
dulf's," said Miss Danesdale exasperated, as sho saw, by a side glance that
her brother Was still ^paying devoted
attention to Mrs, Malleson. Also she
knew the -news V/mild create much disturbance in the bosoms of those her
sisters thon asson-ibled; and, thirdly,
she had tm-aiiciout dislike to the Misses
Conishiorgh for being poor, pretty,
and in h station which mado it impossible for her to ignore them.
"Are tbey?'1 said Aglionby, simply;
"then I am sum, from what I have
scon of my cousins, that ho is very fol'-
tunato to have such friends."
"Thero I quite agree with you,"
drawled Itandulf, whom no ono had
imagined to bo listening; "and so does
Mrs. Malleson. WVvo boen talking
about those ladies just now."
A sensation of surprise was felt'
among tho company. How was it -that
■those Misses Conisbrough had some-
Ww engrossed the conversation 1 It
wns stupid aud unaccountable, except
to Miss Askliam, who wished site had
never »iven those tiresome men tho
chance of talking about theso girls.
But the severest blow had yet to come.
When the nerves of those present had
somewhat recovered from the shock of
finding tlio Misses Conisbrough raised
to such prominence in the conversation
of tlieir bettors, Miss Danesdale said
■sho hoped Bernard would soon come
and dine with them. Was he staying
at Scar Foot at present I All tho matrons listened for the t-eply, having
•dinners of thoir own in view, or, if not
'dinners, some other form o('entertain-
ment.
"I hardly know," was the reply, I
•shall have to go to Irkford soon, but I
don't oxactly know when."
"Irkford! That dreadful smoky
place?" said Miss Askham. "What
•possible attractions can such a place
have for you, Mr. Aglionby?"
"Several. It is my native place,
and all my friends live there, as well
as my future wife, whom I am going
to see. Perhaps those don't count as
points of attraction with you?"
While the sensation caused by thia
announcement was still at its height,
and while Bandulf was malevolently
commenting upon it, and explaining to
Mrs. Malleson what pure joy it caused
him, Sir Gabriel entered, creating a
diversion, and covering Miss Askham's
confusion, though not before she had
exclaimed, with a naivete born of great
surprise:
"I did not know you wero engaged!"
"That is very probable; indeed I do
not seo how you possibly could have
known it," Bernard had just politely
replied as Sir Gabriel made his appearand.'.
There was a general greeting. Then
by degrees the Indies took tlieir departure. Aglionby managed somehow
to get himself introduced to Mrs. Mallesou, whose name he had caught whilo
Randulf spoke. Bernard said he had
found Mr. Mnlleson's card yesterday,
and hoped soon to return his call} he
added, with a smile'into which he
could when, as now, bo chose, infuse
both sweetness and amiability, "Miss
Conisbrough told me to be sure to
make a friend of you, if I could, so I
hope you will not brand me ns 'impossible' beforo giving me a trial," at
which Mrs. Malleson laughed, but said
pleasantly enough that after such a
touching appeal, nothing could be impossible. 'Then she departed too, and
Aglionby felt as if this little aside
alono had been worth tho drive to
Danesdalo Castle ten times over.
Sir Gabriel asked Aglionby to stay
and dine with them, as he was. They
were quite alone, and Philippa would
certainly excuse his morning dress. He
accepted, after a slight hesitation, for
there was something about both Sir
Gabriel and his son, which Bernard
felt to be congenial, unlike though they
nil threo were to one another.
Aftor Philippa had gouo, and the
vino had gone round once or twice,
Sir Gabriel rose to join his daughter,
with whom he always passed his evening, and to do Philippa Danesdalo justice, sho looked upon her father as the
bent of men and tho finest of gentlemen. Her one love romance had occurred just after her mother's death,
when Randulf was yet a child, incapable of understanding or sympathizing,
and when hor father wns bowed down
with woo. Philippa had given up her
lover, and remained with her father;
who had not forgotten the circumstance, as Bomo parents have a habit of
forgetting such little sacrifices. Thus
it came to pass that if "tho boy" was
the most tenderly loved, it wns Philip-
pa's word which was law at Danesdale
Castle.
"Suppose we come to my room, and
have achat," suggested Randulf. "We
can join the others later."
Nothing loath,' Aglionby followed
him to a den whieh looked, on the
first view, more luxurious than it
really waa. When it came to be closely examined there was more simplicity
than aplendor in it, more refinement
than display. In after days, whim lie
had grown intimate as a loved brother
with both the room and its owner,
Bernard said that one resembled the
other very closely. Randulf'8 room
was a vory fair reflex of lUndulfs
tuirid and tastes. The books were
certainly nutnorous, and many of
them costly. There were two or
threo good water-colors on the walls;
some fino spochnens of pottery,
Persian. Chineso, nnd Japanese; ono
or two vases,f real Greek antiques, of
■-■n --iirfrrrnlTrri-fiTBa
pure and exquisite shape Hnd Resign,
gladdening the eye wiih their clean
and clear simplicity. In one corner
of tho room there was an easelwith
a portfolio standing on it, and two
really comfortable lounging chairs.
"Tlie rest of the chairs/' sa.il their
owner,,' wheeling one up for Bernard's
accommodation, "are uncomfortable.
I took, caie of that, for I libld that,
in a room like this, two is .company,
more 'is none whatever, so 1 discourage
a plurality of visitors by means of
straight backs aritj hard seats,".
He handed a box of cigars to Ag-j
lionby, plunged himself into the other
chair, and strctclied himself. Some-'
.where in the background 'Dhete was a
lamp, which, however. 'gaVe but a dim
■light.
"Do ynu know," said Randulf presently, "I wns in the same condition
as Miss Askain this afternoon, I
didn't know you were engaged."
Aglionby laughed. 1 'She seemed
surprised, I don't know why Bhe
should havu been. I thought her
somewhat impertinent, aftd I dtfn't
see what my aflairs could possibly be
to her."
"She is a ptrtlcocious young woman
—as t know to my cost. Of course
your affairs wero something to her, so
long as you were rich nnd a bachelor.
Surely you could understand that.'1
"Good Lord!" waa all Aglionby
said, in a tone of surprised contempt,
"My affairs have been a good deal
to her up to now," continued Randulf
tranquilly. "I was amused to soo
how she dropped me as if I had been
red-hot, when you appeared on the
scene and "
"Don't expose her weaknesses-—
if she has such weaknesses as those,"
said Bernard, laughing again.
"I won't. But she is very handsome—don't you think so?"
"Yes, very. Like a refilled and
civilized gypsy—1 know Borne one who
far surpasses her, though, in the same
style."
"Who is that?"
"The youngest Miss Conisbrottgh.''
"Yes, you are right. But re it
allowable to oak the name of the lady
you are  engaged to?"
"Why not? Her name is Elizabeth
Fermor Vane, and sho lives at Irkford,
as I'mentioned before."
'It will be a matter of much speculation, amongst those ladies whom
you saw this afternoon, what Miss
Vane iB like."
'Will it? How can the subject
affect them?"
"Well, you see, you will be one of
our leading men in the Dale, if you
take that place amongst us that you
ought to have—and tho wife of a
country gentleman is as important
a person as himself, almost."
Bernard paused, reflecting upon this.
Tho matter had never Btruck him in
that light before. Lizzie taking a
leading part amongst tho Danesdale
ladies. Charming creature though she
was, he somehow fniled to realize her
doing it. He could have more easily
imagined even his little tormentor,
Miss Askain, moving with ease in such
a sphere, After a pause he aaid, feeling impelled to confide to a certain
extent in Randulf:
"I had not thought ot that before,
but of course you are right. But I
am very undecided as to what my
future movements will bo. I do not
in the least know how Miss Vane wHI
like the idea of living here. Before
I can decide anything, she will have
to como over and seo the placo. I
have asked my aunt, Mrs. Bryco, to
come and see me, and I shall try to
got Miss Vane to come here soon. I
think she should see the place in
winter, so that she can know what she
has to expect when it is at its worst."
"Queer way of putting tt-,!' murmured Randulf, thinking to himself,
"perhaps he wants to 'scare' her away.
Why couldn't lio havo married one of
the Conisbroughs and settled everything in that way ?"
Bernard proceeded succinctly to ox-
plain how Lizzie had become engaged
to him under the full conviction that
ho would always inhabit a town. Randulf murmured assent, surveying his
guest the while from under liis half-
closed lids, and remarking to himself
that Aglionby seemed to speak in a
very business-like way of his engagement.
"Influence of Irkford, perhaps," ho
thought. "And yet that fellow is capable of falling in love in something
different from a business-like way, unless I'm much mistaken about him,"
The conversation grow by degress
more intimate and confidential. The
two young men succeeded in letting
one anothor see that each had been
favorably impressed with the other;
that they had liked one another well,
bo far, and felt disposed to be friendly
in the future. They progressed so far,
that at last Aglionby showed Randulf
a likeness of Lizzie, after almost upsetting his host's gravity by remarking,
half to himself:
"If I have it with me. I may have
loft it "
"In your other coat pocket," put in
Randulf, with imperturbable gravity,
whereat they both laughed, and Bernard, finding the littlo case containing
his sweetheart's likeness (to which he
nad not paid much attention lately)
handed it to Randulf, saying:
"Photographs never do give anything but a pale imitation, you know,
but tlio likenesses, as likenesses, are
good. She 'takes well' as they say,
and those were done lately."
Randulf, with due respect, took the
case in his hand and contemplated the
two likenesBess, one a profile, the other
a three-quarter face. In the former
she had been taken with a veil or scarf
of thick block lace, coquettishly twisted about her throat and head; the photograph was a good one, and tho face
looked out from its dark setting, cure
and clear, With mouth half smiling,
and eyelids a little drooping. In the
other, Miss Vane had given free scope
to her love for fashion, or wliat she
wns pleased to consider fashion. Tho
hideous bushy excrescence of curls
bulged over her forehead; ropes of
falae pearls were wound about her
neck; he dress was composed of some
fancy material of contrasting shades,
the most outre and unfitting possible
to imagine for a black and white picture. And in that, too, sho was triumphantly pretty*
Randulf had asked to see the likenesses; he WM therefore bound to say
something about it. Aftor a pauso ho
remarked:
