PROVINCIAL lifllSUTURt.
On Thnraday afternoon the debate on the ettimatea vraj continued,
neatly tvery member taking part in
it. The opposition meabera made
iv great many charges against the
government and its supporters,
wliich they on their port denied or
explained, and' itt' some instances
the disoOBsion grew warm and personal. Mr. . Mason defended the
proposed loan. He said the government might adopt the non-progres-
siVe policy of the late administration, collect all the money it could
from the mainland and spend it
about Victoria and. tffe lower main
land, and leave the interior to look
after itself. He for one would be
sorry to see such a state of things
come about. We were living in a
progressive age, and he was glad to
see we had a progressive government.—Mr. Theo. Davie made a
very effective speech in which he
exposed the inconsistency and insincerity of the opposition. He referred to the speech of Mi1. Semlin
in 1883, when he voted to turn out
Mr. Beaven because his government
was allowing roads and bridges
everywhere to go to rain; but now
Mr. Semlin opposed the negotiation
of a loan which was needed to keep
the public works up to publio requirements. What could he (Mr.
Semlin) see in the leader of the opposition now that he failed to see in
18831—Mr. Ladner complained that
only {180,000 a year was being
spent in roads and bridges, and the
sum was too small. Many of the
roads ou the mainland were ina disgraceful condition. He then
branched out into matters pertaining to the last election in Westminster district, and made statements
which the provincial secretary flatly
contradicted. He said the provincial socretary kissed all .the babies
in the distriot to secure his election.
—Mr. Stenhouse offered a resolution
affirming that the government ought
not to continue to use the revenue
for purposes-Of bribery. The resolution was seconded and supported
by Mr. Ladner, and defeated on a
vote of 6 to 13.—Hon. Mr. Robsou
inclosing the debate on the estimates Baid that during the discussion a great many "sticks" had been
thrown at him by the opposition,
bat they were harmless. He was
sure they would not injure him with
tite public in general, with bis constituents, or with the honorable gentlemen of the legislature, and he was
quite sure they did not affect his
private character. "The mast sticks
were always found at the foot of the
best apple tree," Replying to tiie
charge of the member for Westminster city, that constitutional government had been violated by members
of the executive in taking their supporters into their confidence and
consulting with them in regard to
the requirements ot their districts,
it was, he. claimed, customary for
governments to, meet their supporters in cauous to discuss matters of
public policy and the formation of
the estimates with them. The member for Westminster referred feelingly to the condition of the Vancouver road, He had no doubt but
it was in a very-bad condition, and
he was in favor of making it a first-
class road in every respect when the
revenue! would enable the work to
ho done. The same member had,
child-like, challenged him to an election contest in Westminster. He
repudiated the statement that the
government were not sincere in their
efforts to secure better rates on the
Canadian Pacific. The middle member for Westminster campls'ned that
only $1000 was voted to repair the
Yale trunk road. Last year $2000
wss voted for that purpose, but for
every year previous the sum was
(1000 When that hon. gentleman
complained of the ill-treatment of
hiB district it was necessary for him
to enquire a little into the past In
the four years of the Wa)ke,i.-Bea*
ven administration $28,901 was
voted for roads, streets and bridges
in that district, while during the
four years which the present government held office the total sum spent
there for precisely the same purposes was $266,205. The speech of
the middle member for Oartboo district was characterized as one of the
moat remarkablo ever delivered
since the inauguration of constitutional government, The senior member for Yale had given the house's
dissertation on electoral corruption.
Everyone knew how anxious that
hon, gentleman was at one time to
be "corrupted," and beoause he could
get no one to do it he crossed over
to the other side of the house where
all things an pure. The junior member for Westminster distriot had
oharged him with securing his election by bribery. It followed that if
he had, secured his eleotion by brib
ery that tho whole constituency was
corrupt; and oi'behnlf of the 420
who bad voted lor him he hurled the
vile insinuation back. Referring to
the Vancouver affair he said he bad
been charged with being wholly responsible for tlie recent legislation.
He could not if be would, and, would
not if ho could, state how tlie three
ministers stood upon the question,
but was prepared to tike his full
share of responsibility of that and
all other oots ol the government of
which lie was a member. He had
been charged by the opposition newspapers with being an owner in the
land which was Hfing cleared by the
Ohinese. The Contract made with
Mr. McDougall for clearing the
Brighouse estate -vas arranged at
Vancouver by owners in tbat property. He was the last to sign the
contract and bad no reason to suppose that Ohinese would be employed ub the price agreed upon ($150
per acre* he considered ample to secure white labor, and that it was so
was proved by the fact that the contract had been sub-let to Chinese at
$90 per acre. Upon learning of the
difficulty ho wrote up to Bay that he
was prepared to pay a higher price in
order to secure white labor. The
policy of the opposition was simply
to get hold of the money bags: the
policy of the government would be
to conduct the province to that
proud destiny for which nature had
intended her.

THE   MISSOURI FIOOIIS.
Bismaiick, Dak., Mar. 21.—The
Missouri river haa risen a foot hero to
day. The speed of thc current iB terrific and the situation generally grows
worse. This rise is equal to twenty
feet in thc upper rivor, the water here
being spread over six miles of country.
Six inches of snow fell yeBterday and
this will add to the flood as soon as
the weather grows warmer again. The
heroes of the day are tho rescuing
party who went into the lowlands yeBterday and saved the lives of seven
persons, who were perched on the tops
of houses and trees. Despatches from
Fort Lincoln say that people can be
seen standing on hay stacks and trees
and, if not soon rescued, will perish in
the flood. Many claim that the country opposite tho fert contained many
inhabitants who are Btill in great danger. The same reports come from
Painted Woods. The report iB denied
thst Sunt, Graham, oi the Northern
Pacific, has been drowned. He telegraphed to Bismarck on Friday evening. The Sibley Island gortre remains
firm and if affairs continue iu the present state a week a permanent channel
will. be out across the country two
miles eaat of the old bed of the Missouri. Huge cakes of ice are coming
down the river and landing on the
meadow land of the settlers. It is impossible now to repair the Northern
Pacific trestle on account of tho flowing ioe. The terrific rapidity of the
rise of the river at Painted Woods is
indicated by the experience of two
families, who saw the flood in the distance and attempted to pack up their
household goods, preparatory to moving back from the stream to the Unites.
7 houses floated on the tiifthest point
of the lowland before the families
were ready to start. Tho water was
then within IS foot of thoir Iiouse. 5
children were in tho party aud bofore
the Buttes could be reached the flood
overflowed them and the last pnrt of
the journey was made through three
feet of wator. Oneof the children
narrowly escaped drowning- Another
train load of eastern passengers, whieh
arrived to-day will be compelled to remain hero until it is possible to cross
the Missouri. It is believed the Northern Pacilic will be able to establish
a transfor lino of boats to-morrow;
A BAD nitB.
BuirAto, Mar. 21.—A special from
Jamestown says: A fire st the Chautauqua assembly grounds early this
morning destroyed 80 buildings, including several large boarding houses.
The total loss will probably eiceed
$100,000. About 60 families remain
on the grounds during the winter season. The fire swept, everything before it, taking both sidos of Simpson
and Summerneld avenue from the auditorium to tho hotol, and it was with
great difficulty that the hotel was
saved.
A REVOLUTIONARY  SBOIUENT.
St. PtTBRSBmu), Mar. 21.—A sensation hss been caused here by the removal of Ool. Ssssovitch i from command of the grenadiers to a regiment
on the Siberian frontier. The grenadiers, it is said, were becoming imbued with revolutionary ideas. Ool.
Ssssovitch is brother of the famous

fuporary-of the Vanoouver WtraU applauds tbe suggestion of our Correspondent for the
establishment of a Conservative association.     While admitting that

'm^V-mSfti that it is not
aaeeeatry to ran a party organiza-
MM on these lines. Oertainly it is
.'A; bdt the question that comes up
tor answer is, What reason is there
to suppose tbat party tactics in this
proviaoe would be leas open to objection than in othor provinces!
Human nature ia much thesame
wherever one finds it, and we con
not' to a great deal of misgiving
whb respect to tho advisability of
providing here the very machinery
tbat has been working mischief else-
wbere. We admit at once that a
Oowervative association, or any
other political association, if founded
upon oorrect principles and conducted with an honest purpose to
promote the publio good, would be
a meet desirable organization. This
was the character ahd aim of the
association whose establishment we
advocated, and to whioh our cotom-
-porajry refers; but it was not pro-
aoaoel that it should ally itself with
buy political party. It was to be

'-'* The Vancouver Herald professes
not to be able to see how the Colombia*: ean be a oonsistent advocate of temperance while it accepts
hotel advertisements, even with the
wbiakey part of the establishment
Stqmnged. "When our cotemporary
c*n show" says the Herald, "that
hotels are conducted without a bar,
or tbat they could exist without
one, ami that the publio in general
unihntend that they ara merely
places where travellers eat and
sleep, then he will have some
grounds for his complaint" Well,
that is easy enough. In proof of
the fact tbat bars are not necessary
appendages to hotels we may point
to the fact that there are two excellent hotels in this oity, the Farmer's
Homo and the City Hotel, where
no'liquors have ever heen sold. Both
tbea* establishments have been carried on for many years, and both
are -laying concerns. With a great
many people the idea of a hotel
conveys.no suggestion of whiskey,
bessMte .they never patronize the
har at all.    To say that advertising
- a bote! is advertising the liquor
affic" is just as absurd as to say
one' could not consistently ad-
i or recommend a city in
.. 'liquor is sold without beconi-
ia< iebMgeable with encouraging the
twBol lb our mind and conscience
the distinction is dear enough, and
ft is here we have drawn the line.
If our cotomporarv finds that his
conscience' demands the exclusion
e-njfi of hotel advertisements, by all
Uleahslet bira exclude them, and
Jyff shsll applaud his devotion to
oiwlitoBoy ami .conviction.
I A writer in one of the Victoria
papers the other day drew attention
=to I^,«t-i*»iilg nuisance of "name-
lesa -raters," or totters which are
macfe pubuo without the author's
nana., If tbis system of annony-
BMits soribbliijg is a nuisance to the
-public, it is not (ess so to the pub-
: Bakers. . It haa been considered the
ptopsr thing to admit annonymous
eewmtaioitioos when the matter
therein contained relates to ques-
tiou affecting the public good, and
some papers even admit the most
pvttoal reflections to be made over
• .nam de plume. The practice
asaong sll respectable journalists of
late years has been becoming more
conservative, tnd many publishers
sasolutely refiiie to take annonymous
Utters which contain personal allu-
mSaf to matter if the things re*
fttftd to are in the public interest.
We believe this restriction is quite

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
CHEAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
T
IHE AIM OF " GRIP" Is to set forth, In
_ ln an Impartial nnd Independent manner, the passim* uveuts of Cnnndlnu political and social life. Its Cartoons speak
more definitely and moro pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic stylo
of present fag n subject, the whole situa
tion li revealed at a glance. The success
" Grip shows how well this fact Is appro*
elated-Its Cartoons on the passing polit
ical events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after thnn the chaste
and humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though the latter la equal to thnlof nny
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 1880. The old
cover ls to bo discarded, nnd the Journal
will hereafter comprise 1*2 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
sapor,—every number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on the conti net I, The
advts. will be compressed and more systo-
matlcally arranged; while similar Im
provements will be made as to the letterpress. A now and handsome design Will
adorn the title page; while thu Cartoons
will certainly not suffer from extensive
Improvements In the nrtlstle department.
The price of Grip will hereafter bo |2 a
year, whioh ts lower than that of any
paper of Its kind In America,—most of
them selling for \V>. Single numben. of
GWpwM-MlOoent*. ,„.,, .
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features introduced,
particulars of which will bo given In pre-
Siding Issues. These numbers will be
presented to subscribers without extra

Anotiier olWilar Letter.
Some timo ago ire published a sum*'
inary of the correspondence which
took place in connection with a certain lut on Lulu Island. In that correspondence occurred a letter from
Hr. Bole, written on behalf of; Mr.|
Jaquea, who waa his client, whioh contained insinuations against the honesty of the government that under the
circumstances wero nothing lets than
impertinent. Tho whole con-aspond-
ense showed that the ponduct of the
government in that matter hid been
perfectly straightforward. In the
legislative report which we published
on Saturday Mr. Bole slated that Mr.
Warwiok, tho governuieht agent in
thit eity, had made statement! whioh
were " false and malloloua in Ihe extreme." No person who knowo Mr.
Warwiok will tw apt to believe tbat he
hu been guilty of either falsehood or
malice, and ior the purpose of putting
before our readen the facta of the
matter we give below a summary dt
the correspondence published in connection with the application made by
Mr. Bole, on behalf of Philip Kelly,
for apiece of land on Burrard Inlet.
The Brat letter Is from Mr. Bole, and
we most say that it does not ahow any
improvement onthe one we published
a few weeks ago. The letter is dated
Feb. 18th, 1887, and addressed to
Hon. Wm. Smithe, chief oommtaion-
er of landa and work's, ant ia aa follows;
8m,—-I beg to call your attention to a
mott extraordinary olronmstanoe which
occurred, at I am informed by Mr.Kelly,,
in the laid ofioe here to-day. Mr.
Philip Kelly, a elieatol mine, who has
pre-empted a piece Of land'on Burrard
Inlet, north of lot 804, group 1, New
Westminster district, inadvertently:
plaoed on the counter of the office a document referring to said land, signed by
one Stalker, and which Mr. Kelly had
no intention of parting with or using.
Mr. Warwick's name appeared in the
document, and that gentleman seeing the
document took it up and insisted on
keeping it, notwithstanding Mr. Kelly's
formal demand for the return thereof'
Mr. Warwick further remarking," that"
(referring to the document in qnestiou)
" will be sutfioiont to prove Henderson's
claim." Mr. KtUy la, as you are already (wart, the bona fide pre-emptor of
the land m question, while Mr. Henderson Is but a speculative purchaser, representing, probably, much bigger indi*
vlduals In a convenient background.
May I trait that you, officially, enter
tain as strong a repugnance to speculate
ronasere aa Mr. " '
  If and hit ioDeagu .
his plaoe in the houae, when discussing
ive land pnrchasere aa Mr. Robson, on
behalf of himself snd his u>lleaguas,from
the Jacques claim, as if tbat gentleman,
which I doubt, honestly meant what he
aaid, his government has now au opportunity of proving their sincerity, aud
preferring the claim ol the bona fide settler to tbe speculative pur^hassr. Iim,
therefore, to request that ypi will direct
Mr. Warwick forthwith to return to me,
on behalf of Mr, Kelly, the document
above referred to. Your refusal to do so
I must deem conclusive evidence that
Snr government are tiding with Mr.
enderson against Mr. Kelly, who ls
determined, however, to exhaust every
legal remedy before be surrenders his
just rights. May I venture to hope that
in expecting an answer of some kind to
this bttu, that I am not imposing too
.severe a strain on your official courtesy.
I am, etc., W. Nobjuk Bole.
The returns ahow that Mr. Warwick waa uked to explain the cironns-
etuoei referred to ibove, whieh he
B. Henderson and Bigh"Stelker applied for the land. Subsequently
Philip Kelly applied in person and wu
told th* land hid bun already applied
for. Kelly «*u miry, u he diimed
to hsve made improvements, mil he
handed th* agent a letter from Stalker
whieh, th* agent murked, would end
the dispute between Stalker and Henderson. The agent refuted to surrender th* Utter and promised to aee
Henderson with ■ view to1 biting th*
matter amicably arranged. Shortly
afterwards Kelly returned with ,Mr.
Bole'* olerk tnd made another unsuccessful attempt to get the letter, but
the agent only allowed them to take *
caps/. The agent aext day taw Henderson, who withdraw hit claim, and
he then entered Kelly for the land,
Ik* *g**t reported thit the trouble
had resulted from neglect on the part
of Hr. Bol*'e offloe, u be had failed
to nuke application on behilf of Kttly
until if ler tbo claims of Henderson
and Stalker had gone in. The reply
of tb* ohi»f oommittioner to Mr.
Bole*! letter it u follows, dated Vic-
torii, Hu. Sth:
Su,-Your letter of the 18th ultimo
wu duly rtotived, but I delayed an*
I ft until the government agent
1 against oould have an opt
ity of reporting upon the alleged
Having noelved the report of
that officer, I find thit tbe occurrence to
whioh you ire pleated to allude u "a
meat extraordinary olroumstsncs" oon*
listed limply In Mr. Warwick's most
•ommendible determination to retain
l.aetaei-e.of * letter whioh, though ed*
dreend to himself, wu not hit peraonal
property, but belonged to the archives of
the office of which he it In charge. I
ibo find, thit Mr. Warwick showed very
proper courtesy in allowing your clerk to
take a oopy of the letter In question, in
tht Interest of your client, Mr. Kelly)
but it seems to hive been convenient to
you to oudt mention ol thtt ftct when
preftniag your complaint. In view of
the fact that Mr. Wtrwick did nothing
then than hit duty In retaining possession of the letter in question, that be
went beyond the requirements ef his offljj
cial duty md sucoesded In arranging the
Matter ut the Interest of your oil-nt, I
em only characterise the charge brought
by you against that officer u frivolous,
if not something worse. It It more difficult to find words in whioh to convey
adequate censure of the tone ot discourtesy— perhaps Insolence weuld be thi
Warwick'! explanatory note to the effect
that Mr Kelly's troubles were the result
of roar own professional lieknest In not
taring ittsadod to his Instructions It the
proper time. This ts not ths first time I
hare noelved I letter'rom you of a character undeserving ot replyiand I hive to
quest that in any future correspond*
ioe with thit department yos win en*
.. tavor, u tar u may be la your power,
to observe those raise of politeness common among gentlemen, I have, etc,
piTfl Wi-.Sm*iK.
W* may uy that, on publication of
thit correspondence, Hr, Bote wrote
to the CWowil denying thit the fault
ky with him.
