Details #pcctjng (the qutrare
committed upon tKe Chinese at Vancouver laat week leave no doubt
that it was a heartless and brutal
affair. The Ohinamen were driven
from their camp roughly, and we
are ield thst three er four big strong
netware teen Woking.one poor,
holpless ^Chinaman who was afraid
to anVrths slightest resistance. Several of them were driven into the
water and kept standing there with
the .thermometer near the point of
fueling, The law should deal
firmly with the men who'were
guilty of this inhuman conduct.
These Ohinamen were committing
no wrong in coming to Vancouver
in search of employment, and they
wen just as much entitled to protection as if they had been white
men. It it not the Ohinese who are
to blame, but those who bring them
into the place ahd give thom employment ' It Js not necessary for
us to repeat that we regard the
presence of large numbers of China-
men in this country as a great evil,
and that every fair and legitimate
means should be. employed to get
rid of them. But so long as they
are here and behave themselves,
they must' have the protection of
British' 'law. ' What would toese
cruel and thoughtless people who
abused the Chinese at Vancouver
think jf they were in China and received suoh treatment at the hands
of the people of that country! It
is a -poor rule that does not work
both ways. If we refuse protection
to Ohinamen in British Columbia,
we need' 'hot be surprised to learn
that m China all protection is withdrawn from British subjects, and
they ere forced to suffer insult and
indignity. We must expect to receive tie same kind of treatment
we give.     ,
j* tkeHw»M-Amis.
Last week we devoted considerable spsoe to a discussion of the
Vt»ttta_m'Herald1! remarks on the
presont political, contest in this distriot, and pointed out how wholly
our coteioporary misapprehended
some ol tne matters which he attempted to discuss, and how cun-
mujir he misrepresented others. In
hislHue ot Friday our cotemporary
return, ,to the subject and projects
soma nee ideas, quite in keeping
with.his former observations. As
these ideu, or some of them, ore
being industriously circulated by
Mr. Chisholm and his followers
with'lhe object of making capital
against Mr. Trapp, we hope our
readers will pardon us if we refer
again to the Herald's criticism. Our
ootemporary says that temperance
is not tho main question in this election, asd lays it down as a principle
that "a man's life ought to be a better guarantee of character than a
promise." It may be true that
temperance it not the main issue in
this contest, hut it is an issue nevertheless of very great importance.
Would '«ut' extemporary be good
enough to tell us what the "main"
issue u' Then 'a onl)r question, we
believe, mentioned in Mr. Ohisholm's
oddres with which Hr. Trapp has
not deohrrcd himself in sympathy.
In Mr, Trapp's address there are
only two subjects mentioned which
Mn OUtfcolm cannot endorse—one
it 'tte'temperanee question and the
otHtr is the question of Ohinese
laMr. Now, what is the "main"
question! Our ootemporory's principle—"* -ana's life ought to be a
better guarantee of character than
a nron|te"—we are disposed to accept In this instance without quali-
fioattCD. Let ut see how the appli
cation of it will effect the standing
of tfca.two candidates. Against
Mr. Trapp as a citisen, or against
Ua badness, no charge has been
made even by the Herald. He stands
betere ths public, so far as we know,
blMtdraa; so that his life ought to
be a very good guarantee of character'. Against Mr. Chisholm the
'* accusation is made that for
"»" of years post he has been
ui a business whioh has
| tlian anything else to de-
oorse and blast the lives
of his felk)* men. He has oarried
on this pernicious business not be-
oauas it was patriotio or in the pub-
Uc'ttte-eet, but because it brought
n-ohey into' hie strong box out of
tha pockets of its miserable victims,
ofojJH»»^*Jianapromise." Judg-d
byfcjeilevn prinsiple, bow can our
eotttapomry find a guarantee of
iillaOTlWll 1hi candidate he support*) Ha cannot successfully deny
cawef'ttoWcrosttions. Hecan-

itttkSSr with-
out stopping to dispute this, wc may
ask if the election of such a man as
Mr. Chisholm is likely in auy way
to promote temperance by conviction! In conclusion tho Herald declares, as it has before declared, that
Mr. Trapp. is merely a tool in the
hands of Senator Mclnnes. We
presume our cotemporary has re
oeived this piece of information from
Mr. Chisholm, who is industriously
circulating it nbout the district But
in this, as in other things, onr co-
teinporaiy is very likely to be mistaken, and we ask liim now to prove
his assertion by credible evidence,
or take it back!

BUtfaktntB. the Geiu-ral Kloetloii,
Ah It Is my Intention to visit and hold
publio incctliiKH ln every not t lei uent of
ihe dlsiilet hefore election dny, 1 Will
merely lu thlniuUIro.su refer to tlio different Hubjeet.s that are vltnl to our IniereaU
nun district iind |iiovln'-e, which will bo
discussed al length on the public (tintform,
when I hope nil iisjdriiniH for tlm honor
of representing you In (ho Conunomt will
bo present and take pari In thudlHUUHslon,
of which duo notice will ho given
The following arc some of the most Important quostioiiH thut will hnvo my sor*
Iouk consideration:
The luipnivr inciit of I Ite X.ivljti.thni of
Friwer Hlver*—Tho New Westminster
Hoard of Trade have, with the HHSlstunce
of our Into reproneiitnt Ive, beon sticceslf nl
ln obtalnlnit a small iipproprlathm for
thin purpose, which lias heen uxpi'tided

grants an will sukiU'c to complete Ihis liu*
fiortant work, whloli will enable ships of
ho heaviest draught to navlgnto the Fraser rivor at all stages of the tide, nud nil
seaHons of tho yeur,
HqtitttlfrV Claims,—With reference to
thin matter there has been i*rosH neglect
on the part of the Dominion Govornment,
and I nm of tho opinion thnt thoso set*
Mors who located rheit land under Instructions from what ls known as Mr.
Truteh-s pamphlet, should secure the
titlo thereto free of chamu-aiid tho fact
thnt settlers have'To-en unable to secure
their titles has aotod very detrimentally
to the Interests of the provlnoo generally,
and (If eleoted) 1 will be unceasing In my
churls lo secure the adjustment of every
olaim ln tbe distriot.
HiillwiiyHoiiili.-AiKilhor very Import*
ant mutter In connection with our district Is railway connection with our neighbors .south of thc line. Several charters
to connect this city and district with the
American system of railways have been
granted by onr local legislature, but were
unfortunately disallowed hy tho Dominion Government (doubtless through tho
Influence of tho C. 1\ It.) The position
hitherto held by Die Dominion House ls
now untenable, and tbu monopoly eluuso
of thu t*. I*, ll, will have to be done away
with, Bhould this be done there Is no
reason why railway construction should
not commonco In tlie near future, ur our
American cousins are ready uud willing
tu commence work us soon as tho wny Is
opon. I need only say that I shall use my
bunt endeavors to obtain said railway connection and thc abolition of the monopoly elnuse.
Kallwuy lirli'vanceN.-'nie C. P- H, havo
maintained excessive rates for local traltlc
ln this provinoe and to points as fur enst
us Winnipeg. This Is not as It should be,
nnd Is one ofthe rousons why thnt great
corporation should be taught that It Is not
tho only power In the l.uid, but that tt
must bo made subservient to (ho Interests
of the people.
Telearaul>* nud Kallways.-I am of the
opinion that nil (olographs and railways
should bo owned nnd operated by the
government In tho Interests of Ihu people,
aw Is partially the case In Kngland, Germany und elsewhere, and shnll {If elected)
do all 1 ean to bring about this very desirable state of things,
The Mnl.tt.--I shall ubo my best efforts
to have all settlements on the south side
of ibe river supplied regularly with their
malls from Idmner's Landing by wny of
tho Grand Trunk road to Uhllllwnnuk and
nny other plnces not already supplied with
mall accommodation,
The Tfiuperiinre l|Nfillnn.-Upon this
micstlon I feel very warmly nnd sympathize most heartily with nll those who nre
anxious to do awny wit lithe evils caused
hy l|io liquor traffic and shall (If elected)
givo my hearty support to any m<>usurcs
that may lm introduced to advance tills
vciy desirable object.
The Chliicr Question*—With regard to
to this question, I consider It au unmixed
evil, yet al the same time ono of tho hard-
problems that, this nation bus to denl
with, I deem it of vital Importune-* Mint
our Legislatures, both Federal and Provincial, should do Ihctr utmost to dlscour-
ago this tratllci nnd at tho samo time uso
all legnl means In their power to get rid of
thoso Chinamen wboare already amongst
us, i ■  ■
Tho last question thut I wish to bring boforo yon Is that of independence. I again
rolterat" thn statement mndo hy myself ln
tliopnpois-
"lu,Politics, I nm nnd will be thor*
ungbly liidfpciHleal."  '
Bovomt of the ll. c. papers have taken
up this statement and have said a groat
many uncomplimentary things concerning me, suoh us " being on Ihe fence," " n
Grit In disguise,''ijnd so forth, I thereforo
deem lt necessary to explain what [ mean
by being thoroughly Independent. 1 consider any member sunt to Ottawa from this
Province pledged to support any partlculer
party hns allowed himself to bo fettered.
The greatest evils which I brenton the usefulness of the governments of thu United
Htates and Canndn. spring frnm party politics, and In the United Htates ut tbe last
presidential election a number of the
best men of both parlies voted Independently, and for what thoy considered the
best Interests of the country regardless of
party,
AS an Indopcpdunt i shtilj or*llenyorto
voto nnd not (if elected)', tirst, In tbo |nlt»r-
t'slH of my constituents; secondly, in tlie
Interests of the provlnoo, and lastly for
tho goneral good of tho Dominion, pledging myself neither lo Grit nor Tory, but
claiming tlm right as a free born llrltlsh
Hubjcot to uqo my Influenco and vote on
tho sido where I consider your Interests
nnd the Interests of tho nation lie,
I take this opportunity af soliciting the
vote and influenco of all,and whilo I shall
/ocl vory much honored If you elect mo as
your representative, I trust, that lime will
provo that your confidence has not been
mlsplnuod,

To (lie Electors ofthe Electoral District of New Westminster.
GENTDKMEN:—Shortly ufter the lu-
meutod death 0f our late Itepresuntntlve,
Mr. Homer, IwaH Solicited by a number
of my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Candidate for the Representation of the District of New 'Westminster In
the House of Commons of Canada. The
personal solicitation of friends, woe shortly followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent and In linen Ial Electors of the City and District, that I felt tt
to be my duty to place my services at their
dlspopiil. It is not therefore, Gentlemen,
as a self-nominated candidate, that I ask
for your support, but I do so In response to
the request of over four hundred of your
numbor.
To many of you, Gentlemen, who hnve
known me for a long time, lt )■ unnecessary for me to say, thnt I am perfeotly
familiar with the great and varied resources of this Province. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experience, and will (If elected) onable me to placo prominently before Parliament, the great resources of
this Province, and the means necessary
to be employed to nld ln their further
development.
It is impossible, Gentlemen, In-an address such ub this to do more than allude
to some of tho questions of Interest and
Importance to you, whioh as your representative, 1 would consider it to be my
duty to bring to the notice of Parliament.
I will, however, enumerate a few matters
of great importance to us all, ln regard to
winch It will bo my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
I will endeavour lo have removed from
the mouth of onr noble River, every impediment to its froo navigation,nnd nave
necessary lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor to secure to settlers and
squatters an immediate title to their
lands. This I consider to bo a matter not
only of justice, but also of expediency.
Heretofore groat injustice has been done
to a valuable nnd deserving class of our
population, to whom, had justice boon
done and facilities afforded for acquiring
homesteads, tbe results of their Industry
would, ere this, have done muoh to dovel
op the agricultural capabilities of this fine
dtstiiet,
I am awnro, Gentlemen, that the numbor of representatives to which each province of tho Dominion Is entitled Is based
upon population, yet I believe that, owing
to exceptional ctrcuoistauccs, such as the
fact that this provinco contributes to the
revenue of llic Dominion a muoh larger
percentage, according to population, than
nuy of tiio oilier provinces; and also to
the fact that huge centres of population
aru rapldlv bring formed In this district-
that It Is entitled to a larger representation in tho parliament of the Dominion,
and which ns a mutter of justice I will en-
donvor to obtain.
I wilt itl su endeavour to obtain for tho
residents <>r this District bottor postal
facilities, to which thoy are Justly on-
tilled.
I will me my best oflorls to seenre equitable rates on nll railway and telegraph
lines, and to have the sumo fixed by law.
The Interest'; of British Columbia do-
maud thut every Impediment lu thc way
of constructing railways to our Hou thorn
boundary and other poitlons of this district bo removed to aid iu the development of our resources, Iwlll endeavor to
have this necompllslicd. and ulso to ob*
tain uid for the construction of canals und
the Improvement of navigable streams.
I will also consider It my duty to render
nll possible nld to nny legislation which
seeks lo simplify nml render less costly
the administration of Justice, especially
as between Individuals und corporations.
My (political platform ls, In thc first
place, tho interest of llrltlsh Columblu,
which I believe can bo best served by my
giving an Independent support to the
present government, which has not In the
past beeu unmindful of the Interests
of llrltlsh Columbia, and to whom we
are Indebted for the early completion
of the railway, which hns brought
us Into communication with the Eastern
Provinces und Europe, nnd through
the agency of which, wo will ln tne
near future, be plnced In direct communication with Australia, China, Jnpnn,
nnd the Great Eastern Empire, which
must prove to hoof Incalculable valuo to
this province, nnd to this district In particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I hnvo only
to suy, that I am prompted by a sincere
desire lo benefit this district nud to nld lu
promoting Kb varied Interests, nnd I nsk
your support only upon thoso grounds.
It Is my Intention lo see us mnny of you
previous to the election as time and circumstances will admit of In thc meantime,
I remain, Gontlemon,
Yours vory truly,
dwfefitd DONALD CHIHHODM.

THEIR SIN FOLLOWED THEM.
A Bomeatlo Btorj et Wrong and Shame.
.Many years up the president of one
oi tho New York railroads hod a very
owver private Mcretary, who also, in
his turn, became a railroad president.
He had a wifo and three ohildren.
Hta patron and employer had a wife,
who ia a sister to one of the richest mon
in America and in the world. The
seoretaiy met her and tho twain were
u flax and flame. They out all honor
and duty aside 'for one another, and
away they went together.
She boing immensely wealthy, and
he being what may be called riol, they
doubtless thought that they oould defy
the conventionalities. They wandered
to Japan, Egypt, Greece, Russia, seeking, in tho excitement of ohange, relief
from self-vepvoaoh. The woman, thinking thot timo hrd wiped ont memory,
returned.
Bhe had beauty, a great name, immense wealth; aooioty ehonld receive
her. She dropped tho role of penitent,
ceased toloavo cards whoroehe dreaded
thoy would nnt bo returned, and commenced tho formation of a new social
circle. Sho had a box at the opera,
costly turnouts, gorgeous entertainments.
But before the season was half over
Bho liad to admit thatsomethingbesides
mouoy ia needed to obtain a sure footing
in New York society.
Her plan had proven a failure. Bhe
determined to make another. Sho did:
Bhe mado two or three in. as many of
our leading oities, always with thesame
result.
Thon she determined to go to Paris.
Sho furnished a handsome apartment,
paid her respects at tho American legation, returned the call of the minister's
wife, attended churoh assiduously.
They were electing a new church for
thn American colony. Sho went to Dr.
Morgan, presented many letters, told
hiiaho? desire to obtain a proper presentation in the society ofthe colony,
and oiieioil him* donation to his ohuroh
of 100,000 francs if he would assist
her.
Tho worthy doctor personally presented hor to eevoral ladies of his
flock. Ono of theso returned hor call.
Tho Sunday following tho magdalon
madoa return oall. After hor departure
an old friend of thehosteuwhisperod:
"Is it possible you receivo Mrs. So-
and-so here* Don't you know," etc.,
etc.
In leu than a week the wholo sooiety
ot the Amorican colony was closed to
her, nnd tho church lost a donation.
Will she remained in Paris—where
elso could she go?—and her gay and
withered lover, accompaniod by his two
daughters, came to share hor apart-
monts nnd her solitude.
A fow months ago ho loft her for a
business bin to this oountry. He died
a fow days baok on his return voyage,
at a smalltown on the South cout of
England, with not a friend noar him.
Mi ro lonoly than a widow she hu boon
for years; what is sho now?—[Exchange.

"All Quiet Alan( the Potomao."
While visiting tho beautiful little
town of Buena vista, some time ago,
I tnmbled on some reminiscences of
tho brilliant genius who wroto, "All
Quiot Along the Potomao To-Night"
Poor Thad. Oliver I Bright, fasoin-
oting, brilliant and dissipated. Ho
could umko tho finest spoeeh of any
man at tho bar. He was better half
drunk than his brethren woro in their
coolest moments. His puns, his epigrams and jokes, to say nothing of his
sweet littlo poems, were quoted by a
largo oirclo of onthnsiutio friends. But
lio lived out his days before he had
timo to fulfil tho promise ot his youth.
IcauweUimaginohow that sensitive
soul wu moved to formuloto that grand
poem as ho stood picket at some lonoly
post besido the dark Potomao Bivor,
while—
The stars up above with their glittering
eyes
Kocp guard, for tho army Is sleeping.
Ho had no aocurate notion of the
value of his work, and the scrawl wu
passed from one to another of his com-
radon, mid around the camp fire they
ran 1 nnd commented upon it, Thoy
were true critics. One of his comrades
toll mo that he had been moved to tears
by the lines:
There Is only the sound of the lone sentry's tread,
As he tramps front th* look to the
fountain,
And he thinks of the two on the low
trundle bed,
In tho cot far away on the mountain.
And whon the battle waa orer, when
poor Thad. had been roughly saluted by
tho grim messenger, and; lay in an un-
known grave on a bettle-aoarred slope
.'.lining tho Virginia  hills, then   the
literati read and wondered.
First one and then  another of the
sweet Ringers of the earth were credited
with this mutorpioce of poetry.  And
thoro lay the author, unhoeding the
wrangling and the conflicting criticisms
of tlioso who wisely sat themselves in
tho noat of judgment.
Ilnrk! Was It the night wind thatrushed
through the trees?
Wns't the moonbeams ao wondrously
Hashing?
It looked like a musket.   "Hal Hary,
good-by I"
And  tho llteblood was ebbing and
splashing.
All qulotalong the Potomao to-night;
No sound save the rush of the river;
While soft falls the dew on the faceol
tho dead.
The picket's off duty forever I

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing Company
ON TUB 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stoek company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New ,Westm luster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the new company Is to continue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose Individual interest tt will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thore will be no
slackening of thc energy hitherto dis*
played In the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full valuo for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be en-
tiroly Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of snch schemes as
may bo considered in the public interest.
Tlie concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment In this oity
having been taken over hy Mr, T, R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own namo and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
tho new company oaks for publio patron-
ago on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare It aska tbat the Columbian be judged on iti own merits and
supported only ao long as ito polioy ts
consistent with its professions. In consequence of this business ohange all accounts duo the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

have become tuspiciou. since so many

simple solution of the vexed Ohinese
question for the Vancouver people.—
ric. Times.
New License Bill.—To-day the
provincial tecrotary introduces his
new bill to regulate the liquor trafflo
in this province. It is to be hoped
the bill is sufficiently comprehensive
to meet the demands of enlightened
publio opinion. In the matter of the
regulation of the liquor trafHo this
province is nearly 50 years behind oil
the othor provinces of tiie Dominion.
During tho past few years publio sentiment in th<s respect has undergone
considorablo changd, however, and the
regulations should keep fully up to
the requirements of public opinion.
Fno*t New Wrbtminmsr to New
Youk.—"I've hoard oil tho stories of
long telegraph circuits;" said a postal
telegraph operator at Buffalo, "and
in my time I've worked some pretty
long ones myaelf, but I've novor heard
of anything tbat equalled one that we
had this afternoon. Our people are
building a line from Ihe terminus of
the Canadian Pacific to Frisco, and I
heard Vice Pro,ident lloeener talking
with Preaident Chandler in his office
in New Yurk city. Mr. Boaoner waa
in New Westminster, which it on the
Paoifio coast, just opposite Vanoouver
Island, to they were talking across the
continenl. By lhat route it is about
3,000 miles, for the wire ia made up
via Buffalo, Toronto and the Canadian
Pacifio. Evory few minulea I could
hear Medicine flat chip in, and all
along the circuit the- operators were
1 on. It wot a wonder to anybody,
and the instruments were working
clear at a bell on that long copper
wire."

Floating Ice
DOE* OOMIDEIMLE DAMAGE.
Yeaterday and to-day large quantities of ice, loosened by the recent
rains, have been floating up and down
the river at tho will of the tide, raking
the wharves along the river front and
doing them considerable damage. The
wharvet of Mr. Liidlaw and the Brunette Saw Mill Co. at Sapperton were
conaiderably injured, the former having the front row of its piles completely carried away, Millard's and Law's
wharves in tho city were each struok
by a large cake yosterday afternoon
aud tome of their corner supports
broken. Mr. Ewan's wharf waa split
open and one corner badly crushed.
Millard', wharf ia also almost demolished. The str. Alice, which has
been lying at the O. P. E. whsrf
since the cold spell, was jammed
against thu wharf, and now lies half
under water. Largo oakes of ice are
ttill floating in tho river, and it it
feared more damn^o wiil be done bofore tho river it ontiroly clear.
Mr. O. W. Macully, Pavilion Moun-
tain, B.C., writes: "Dr. Thomas'
Kclectric Oil Is the best inedioiue I evor
used for Rheumatism. Nearly every
winter I am laid up with ltheumatiain,
and having tried nearly every kind of
medicine without getting any benefit,
until I used Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil.
It has worked wonders for mo, and I
