The Fishery Qaestloii.
The Buffalo Courier, in the course
of a vigorous reply to an article in
this journal, insists that the Americans do not seek to steal our fish;
all they desire is to establish "the
right of American fishing vessels to
enter the ports of tlie Dominion in
the same manner and under the
same regulations, as may exist therein,' applicable to trading vessels of
the most favored nations." It is
clear from this that our Buffalo co-
temporary has been misled by the
cries of Mr. Blaine and his retinue.
The Canadian government does not
and has never sought to deny the
right of bona fide trading vessels be
longing to the United States to
touch and trade on our coasts. It
does maintain, however, that American fishing vessols, and American
vessols passing us traders but in
reality equipped nnd intended for
fishing, have no such right. The
treaty of 1818 is our horn hook.
Thnt instrument provides that
American vessels engaged in tho
fisheries may avail themselves of
our ooasts (1) to obtain shelter, (2)
to' effect repairs, (3) to buy wood
and (4) to procure water, but (5) for
uo other purpose whatever." What
is the meaning of this fifth clause!
Clearly it ia aimed to prevent American fishing crews from making use
of our coasts in the aetive prosecution of our calling. Why) Because
such a right belongs exclusively to
Canadian fishermen.    The makers
< of the treaty simply recognized a
principle which every one admits in
tho case of private property, and
whieh American lawyers down to
very recent times have never disputed. Unfortunately the Amerioan fishermen, urged on by greed,
determined almost from the first to
get the better of thortreaty. Shortly
after its passage they commenced to
hnd for the purpose of purchasing
bait, ice, and supplies, and of transshipping their cargoes. Occasionally, too, they employed rum in bartering with our people, and fighting
and oven rioting were not unknown.
By 1824 the colonial governments
were loudly demanding protection
from these practices; and, with the
aid of British war vessels, steps
were taken to check them. The
reciprocity treaty of 1854 gave
American fishermen the liberty of
fishing any wliere in our waters, and
the privilege of landing, transhipping, baying bait, etc., was thrown
in. Canada was quite content that
this neighborly state of things
should endure; but in 1866 the
Americans terminated the arrangement, and the treaty of 1818 came
into force again. In February, 1866,
the governor-general notified American fishermen that the privileges
they had enjoyed for 12 years had
ceased. They were angry, and refused point blank to admit our right
to the exclusive enjoyment of our
own coasts nnd inshores for fishing
' purposes, The inatter was settled
for a short time, however, by the
adoption of the license system. The
British government, not wishing to
precipitate a quarrel, nsked us to
grant the old privileges to American
fishing vessels by license, and our
government agreed to do so, In
1866, 354 licenses were taken nut
by American fishermen; that is, 354
of their vessels formally recognized
that their' enjoyment of the privileges referred to depended on our
good will. But three times as many
American vessels refused to take
out licenses and yet fished in our
waters and landed on our coasts.
In 1869 only 25 licenses were taken
out. The natural result of this
wholesale trespassing was the collapse of the licenso system. Nothing remained for the Canadian government but to revert to protective
measures, and a murine police was
organised by Mr. Peter Mitchell.
The American fishermen, as usual,
complained loudly of the seizjres,
declared we were inhoiipitiiblu unci
barbarous and ihreatened wnr. In
his report for 1870 Mr. Mitchell
pointed out that "American fishermen cannot successfully prosonutc
the gulf fisheries without using our
inshore waters and frequenting nur
bays, ports and harbors; but these
privileges we cannot, in justice to
ourselves and to our own seaboard
population, permit foreigners to use
and enjoy without some adequate
equivalent." That is tho wholo
question in u nutshell, — Toronto

Dominion/Elections.... Vf, J. Armstrong
Sails fritisk Columbian
Tkanday Evealag, rebraary II, 1881.
Tho bill granting woman suffrage in Washington Territory having been 'declared unconstitutional,
the' whole business falls through.
For two or three years women have
enjoyed equal rights with men in
that territory, and we apprehend
that no one will say the experiment
faulted in any change for tho worse
in the making or administration of
the laws. Now that the bill has
been made powerless through a technicality, public opinion is expressing
itself yery freely on the policy of
the enfranchisement of women. In
thii expression of the public will it
is notable that while several good
men do not favor woman suffrage,
almost every bod man in the territory is opposed it. ' Is there not a
valuable lesson to be learned from
this*
Notwithstanding the efforts made
by the citizens of Vancouver to
keep Chinamen out of their city,
it jil aaid that the number of celes
tials there is rapidly increasing.
At a meeting held on Tuesday
the chairman gave it as his
opinion that at least 100 hud
bien. added to the Chinese population within three weeks. For some
time a pledge has beeu circulated
for signatures among nil business
men, and that pledj.0, in its modified
form, is as follows: "Tho tindei signed
pledges himself not to deal directly
or indirectly with Ohinese." If this
is signed by every business man in
Vancouver (of which there is every
prospect) the Ohinese question there
will be considerably simplified, although .it will not lie by any means
solved.
We are inclined to suspect that
those filibustering Yankees,who saw
in the retaliation bill a certai- instrument for the suspension of
friendly relations between the United States and Great Britain will
find themselves disappointed. The
bill places the whole matter in the
hands of President Cleveland and
his cabinet, and the president's record it not such as to justify the belief that he will rush into anything
so silly or impolitic as this measure
contemplates.    If the nation had
DfJL|PSl'ol'tulHfr BS *° nave e'ect'
ea Mr. Blaine to the presidency, the
case would he different. Blaine is
just the sort of person to run a nation into embarrassment without
•topping to reflect upon the consequences. But Cleveland has hitherto maintained th. dignity and intelligence of a statesman.
At the general election of 1882
no fewer than 25 members were
eUsjtfd^hyhif^lajiation. From our
despatches yesterday it appears that
there were only 7 elections by acclamation last Monday. This is evidence of a spirited contest, Speaking, at Kingston yesterday Sir John
Macdonald is reported to have said
that the. government felt confident
of a majority of 30, and that was
as large a majority as it wished. If
the leader of the government party
really gave expression to such a belief, it is proof that he looks for a
very close contest It is the common custom in the east (and we are
sorry to find the custom becoming
fashionable in this province) for the
party managers to proclaim the certainty of large majorities for the
purpose of encouraging themselves
and disheartening their opponents.
Sir John' is an accomplished party
wire-puller, and if he proclaims a
majority, of only 30, we may with
perfect safety adopt the opinion that
he. does not look for any such majority at all. On the other hand
th'e Liberals are figuring on a majority of 40.- It may happen thut tho
successful party will find its majority so small as to be insufficient tor
the purpose of carrying on the government at all.
Now that the United States senate
has passed a bill appropriating $21,-
000,000 for the purpose of improving the coast defences and purchasing heavy ordnance, the press of tho
maritime states may breathe more
freely. A great deal of the belligerent,, editorial work of the post six
months has', been undertaken with
the sole object of securing large appropriations for military purposes,
; which means large expenditures of
: publie money in many of the cities
•' lying along the coast. Indeed it is
mon than probable that the fishery
dispute had been used industriously
for the purpose of hastening this
very object. It is a faot beyond dis-
pite/bowever, that there is great
nnv .for improvement in the coast
defdneee tad ordnance of the United
.States. It hu been stated on good
authority that there are at the pres-
eni'lBoment only 29 guns of high
powNr now in possession of the gov
eminent, while Great Britian has
7,<XJ0, France 6,000, and Russia
1,000, Moreover, there is not on
this continent machinery capable of
constructing heavy ordnance, and it
ii asserted that no large gun of modern pattern could be turned out in
lea than two years. The expenditure of 121,000,000 ought to make
• wonderful improvement In the military equipment of theiTJnitadBtates.

As It Is my Intention to visit nnd hold
publio meetings In every settlement of

merely In Ihis address refer to the different subjects Unit, ure vital to our Interests
us it district uml province, which will he
dismissed nt length on the publie platform,
when I hope ull aspirants fur the honor
of representing ynu iu tlto Commons will
he present und tnke pnrt in (lie discussion,
of which due notice will be givon
Tlicfnllowinuuresuiiie ofthe most important quesllimsthni will hnve my serious consideration*
Tlie liiiprovenieiilorilie Xnvlj-iilltm of

of onr Inic representative, been successful
In ubtuliilu*,' u small appropriation for
this purpose, which has heen expended
the past full; nud It will bo the duty of
yonr representative to secure such annual
grants ns will sutllce to eoinplete this Important work, which will enable ships of
the heaviest ilrnught to nnvlgnte tho Fruser river at nll stages of the tide, and nil
seasons of (lie year.
Mquutler-.' <lalni».-WUh reference to
this mutter thero hus been gross neglect
on the part of the Dominion Government,
nnd I um of tho opinion thut those settlors who located their land under Instructions from what is known us Jlr.
Trutch'* pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto frooof eharge-and the fuet
thnt srillers hnve lieen unable to secure
their titles lius acted very detrlmcntallv
tothe Interests of the province generally,
nud (If elected) I will  he unceasing In my
efforts to secure the adjustment of everv
claim iu the district.
Rullu»> Houib.-Another very Important matter iu connection with our district is rnilway con neetlon wit h onr neighbors south of the line. Several charters
to connect this ciiyund district, with the
American system of railways have been
'■runted hy our loeui legislature, but woro
unfortunately disallowed by Ine Dominion (tovenuiicnl (doubtless through thc
Inilueneo at tho C. P. It.) The position
hitherto held bythe Dominion House Is
now untciiiihlc.nnd the monopoly elnuse
of the 0. I\ It. will have to be done nwny
with. Should this be done there Is uo
reason why railway construction should
not commence In thc ncur future, ns mir
American cousins are ready mid willing
tocomr.icnee work as soon us thc wuy is
open. I need only nny thnt I shall use my
best endeavors to obtain snid railway connection and lhe abolition of llio monopoly clause.
Hallway «rlfvaiin*H.-The C. P, It. have
maintained excessive rules for local trallic
In this proviuce nntl to points us fnr east
ns Winnipeg. This Is not as It should be,
nnd Is one of Ihe reasons why thut greut
corporation should he taught thai It is not

To the Electors or Iho Electoral District ol New Westminster.
GENTLEMEN;—Shortly nfter the lamented ihat-h of our lato Hepresentatlve,
Mr. Homer, I wus Solicited by a numbor
of my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Candidate for the Representation of the District of Now Westminster In
the House of Commons of Cunnda. The
personal solicitation of friends, wus shortly followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent nud ltifluenial Electors of the Clly and District, thnt I felt lt
to bemy duty to plnco my services at their
disposal. Ills not therefore, Gentlemen,
us a self-nominated candidate, tliat I nsk
for j'our support, but I do so In response to
Mie request of over four hundred of your
number,
Tomunyof you, Gentlemen, who hnve
known me foru longtime, lt Is unnecessary for mo to say, that I um perfectly
familiar with the great nnd varied resources of this Province. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural nnd
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experience, nnd will (If elected) enable me to place prominently before Parliament., tho great resources of
this Province, and tliu means necessary
to ho employed to aid In their further
development.
It is impossible, Gentlemen, in an address such as this to do moro thnn ntludo
to some of the questions of Interest nnd
Importance to ymi, which ns yonr representative, I would consider it fo be my
duty to bring to the notice of Parliament.
I will, however, enumerate u few matters
of grent Importance to us ull, In regard to
which it will he my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
I will endeavour to have removed from
the mouth of our noble Hlver, overy Impediment to Its free navigation,and lmvo
necessary lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor to secure to settlers ond
squatters an immediate titlo to their
lands. This I consider to be a mnttor not
only of justice, but nlso of expediency.
Heretofore grent injustice has been done
to a valuable and deserving class of our
population, to whom, had Justiee boen
done nnd facilities a Horded for acquiring
homesteads, the results of their Industry
would, ere this, have done much to devel
op llio agricultural capabilities of this tine
district.
I am aware, Gentlemen, Hint the num*
bot of representatives to which each province of the Dominion is entitled ls based
upon population, yet I believo that, owing
to exceptional circumstances, such us tho
fact that this provinco contributes to the
revenue of tlie Dominion a much larger
percentage, nccording lo population, than
any of the other provinces; und also to
the fact. Hint large centres of population
arc rapidly being formed in tills district-
that it. Is entitled to u larger representation in tlie parlinment, of tho Dominion,
and which us a muller of Just lee 1 will en-
den vor to obtain.
1 will ulso endeavour to ohlnin for the
residents of this District belter postal
facilities, to which lliby lire justly entitled.
I will use my best cll-irls to secure equitable rules on all railway nnd telegraph
lines, unit lo have tlie same llxcd liy law.
Tlio Interest* of llrltlsh Columliia demand that every impediment in tlie wuy
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundary und other portions of this district be removed io aid In the development of our resources. I will endeavor lo
have Mils nt'conlpllshod. und nlsotoob*
tnin ufd fortlicciiiistructfonof ennuis and
tho Improvement of navigable streams,
I will nlso consider It my duty to render
ull possible aid to any legislation wlilcli
seeks to simplify anil render less cosily
tbe administration of Justice, especially
us helween Individual* and corporations.
My 'political platform Is, fn the first
place, tlu* Interest of llrltlsh Columbia,
which 1 believe cun he liestsorved by iny
giving tin independent support to the
present government,which bus not In the
pnst been unmindful of the Interests
uf lirliish Columbia, nud tn whom we
ore Indebted for the early completion
of the railway, which hns brought
us into communication with the Eastern
Provinces und Europe, and through
the agency of which, we will In tne
neat' future, be placed lu direct communication with Australia, China, Japan,
und (ho Great Eastern Empire, which
must prove to be of Incalculable valuo to
this province.and lo this district In particular,   '
In conclusion, gentlemen. T have only
to say, that I am prompted by a sincere
desire to benefit this dlstrlel uml to aid In
promoting lis v.tried interests, and I ask
your support only upon these grounds.
It Is my Intention to sec ns mnny of you
previous to the election as time and clr-
eumslnnoos will admit of In the meantime.

do it: if they will not, Mr. Chisholm

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE
Monday, Feb. 14.
Hon. Mr. Robson brought  down
correspondence between  the government nnd the C. P. It. respecting the
Vuncouver extension.
Mr. Ladner moved, seconded by Mr.
Orr, that an order of tire Iioubo be
granted for a return of highways gazetted on the north side of Fruser, iu
Townships 17, 20 and 23, New Westminster district, and a return uf all
moneys expended since 1st July, 1883,
on roads and bridges iu the nbove
townships. The mover said large
Bums of money hud bocits/ipent upon
roads whioh were surveyed but nut gazetted, and two or threo dinputes hnd
already arisen ou account of the uncertainty as to where the line run.
Resolution enrried.
Hon. Mr. Robson asked leave to
introduce a bill to repeal (iu pnrt) Ihe
Sumas Dyking Act of 1878.
Mr. Orr moved for correspondence
respecting the railway bridgo across
False Creek. The mover said a bridge
had beeu constructed across False
Greek which greatly interfered with
traffic, aud particularly with the business carried on by tho mills situated
above the bridge, and he wished to ascertain whether the government had
represented the inatter in a sufficiently
forcible manner to the federal government.
Mr. T. Davie moved for a committee
tu enquire into the statement mnde
by Mr. Grant to the effect thut during
the general election at Victoria ballot
papers had been circulated with the
name of Mr. Beaven, leader of the op
position, obliterated. After some
cross-tiring Mr. Bole offered to amend
the resolution by asking the committee
also to enquire into a statement .which,
he snid, the provincial secretary hud
mnde during the canvass to the effect
thnt there was still §100,000 of the
dock money unexpended, nnd now in
tiie treasury. Hon. Mr. Robson said
he had not used these words. ' What
he said was that the govemment intended to keep fnith with the mainland
with respect to the dock money expenditure, aud that there was still a bal
ance of $102,000 remaining which
would be expended ou mainland improvements. He cuuld uot liave snid
that amount was iu the treasury at the
time, for no one knew better than tie
tliat it was uot tliere. He wuuld be
most happy, at the proper time, to
support the appointment of it commie-
tee to enquire intu his conduct during
the election, but this amendment wub
introduced simply to draw a red herring ' across the scent. Messrs. Orr
aud Ladner both declared that Mr.
Robson had said the money was actually in the treasury at the time. After
considerable discussion the resolution
was adopted, without amendment, by
a vote of 14 to 8.
In reply tu Mr. Hiugins the attorney general suid it wus not the government's intention to make provision
this year for new parliament buildings.
Ool. Baker gave notice of motion
asking the Cunadinu guvernment to
make better provision for the defence
of British Columbia by the establish*
ment of a battery, and alao In authorize the enrolment of new militia corps
at Nanaimo, Vancouver, nud in the
Yule and Kootenay districts, and pro*
vide better accommodation fur drill.
Mr. Orr gave notice of a resolution
for all communication with the C. P.
R. respecting the bond entered into
with tho government.   .
Mr. Croft gave notice that he would
move for a committee to arrange a
sehome for the protection of our timber.

Rome, Feb. 10.—Qen. Gene, commander of the Italian troops at Massowah, telegraphs under date of last
Sunday: " Situation unchanged. R»s
Alouk'a camp still at Gevra. Ras
Alouk gone to Makaleo, summoned by
King John of Abyssinia. Count Sui-
imbeni arrived Thursday from Asmara
with a verbal demand from Ras Alouk
to imprison Mohammed Bey, who,lias
Alouk says, incited him to attack us
to prevent our invading the country.
Count Saliuibfliii confirming this, I
arrested and imprisoned Mohammed
Boy. Informed Ru Alouk I had
done so, mnd it rest, with me to punish Mohammed Bey as he is under my
service. I asked Ras Alouk to release
Count Salimbeni and hi. companion.
Count Stlimbeni confirmed the information that only the usual garrisons
areVtationsd at Ghiiida and Asmara,
ana that Ras Alouk considers the
campaign ended. Count Salimbeni
returned to Asmara."
Maniua, Feb. 16.—The expedition under the governor of the Philli-
pine islands, which went to Mindedas,
shelled that place and drove out the
natives. After a skirmish the expedition landed and erected forts previous
to proceeding to the interior. The
sultan of Sooloo, assisted by Spanish
troops, defeated the rebel natives and
forced them to submit to his authority.

Topeka, Kansas, Feb. 16.—The

Nnw Yoke, Feb. 16.—At lower
quarantine to-night it was reported
that the Wisconsin was ashore and anchored outside the bar. No traces of
her or of wrecking tugs could be
found. At the Guion line office it was
said that the steamship Nevada and
the menus cutter Grant had gone to
her assistance, and that the tugs had
mlsM thii Wisconsin. It wu reported that one boat-load of passengers
had landed and proceeded to New
York by rail. Guion line officials discredited the report. The official. Baid
that the Nevada would not leave the
Wisconsin until she wu safe.
Dublin, Feb. 16.—Interest in the
oue of the traversers is increasing.
Tho oourt wu crowded to-day. None
of the defendants were presont ut tho
opening uf the court, but some of
them looked in occasionally during the
day. The indulgence shown the de
fendant's by the court makes the trial
appear faroical. Solicitor General
Gibson, on behalf of the crown, reviewed th* history of the plan of campaign. He defied counsel for the defense to prove thst the plan of campaign wat legal. The orown authorities, bt laid, were unable to prove that
the traversers hsd met together, but
they could show that they had worked
together in an illegal and criminal conspiracy. Tbe cue wu adjourned till
tomorrow. McDermott has refused a
retainer of ont hundred guineas for
the defense of the traversers.
Uo We Grow Worse?
President Eliot thinks thot young
men do not shun politics so much because politics are unclean ns that the
inadequate, salaries attached to public
offices make it impossible to mako a
living in politics. If Eliot is right
then we may expect to be ruled either
by men who are rich or by men who
mean to get rich by plundering thoir
fiubUo trusts. So far as the uncleun-
iness of. politics and their indecent
spirit are concerned, the field is purer
to-day in both England and America
than it wns one hundred yonra ngo—
when we remember that wo are 60,-
000,000 to-day ngainst 3,000,000 in
1790; that our groat metropolis of New
York contains 1,600,000 against 30,000
* century ago. As late hs 1810 Now
York oity had only 06,000 people, nnd
in 1860 it had but 515,000. Allowing
for this vast increase of population it
is probably true that our field of politics
is relatively quite u pure as it was in
tht daya of Washington and Jefferson,
and purer than the politics of England,
in spite of the fact that their election
laws m severe and their suffrage
limittd, ctmpared with the universal
ballot ill America. Bribery at elect ions
ill* old u 169, B.C., when Rome
punished bribt givers by exile. Subsequently> law wu passed, fining a
candidate who attempted to bribe an
elector and depriving him forever of
tht right of holding office or sitting in
tht senate, tnd the law construed giving tht people a banquet or a gladiatorial show u a bribe, By the time
of Julius Omar these laws were
violated with impunity. Bribery was
a common practice with courts and
juritt under Henry the Eighth; Lord
Btoon wu disgraced fer bribe-taking
under Jtmet tke First, and political
bribery bteam. an organised system
under Charltt tht Second. In the
iimt *t Gtorgo the Second, under
Wtlpolt, trerr man had his price.
Ti»flrtt htatX Holland, father of
CoMUt Jam*. Fox, was conspicu-
tor. hit peculations, and for
. corrupt employment of the
VhVwat allowed to steal. In
lMTiht electiontxptntes of so good
a air. M William Wilberforce wero
£09,000, and in 1967 the English
Btvtrly bribtty commission reported
that oui of * otnttltuency of 1100 about

So corrupt is tlio English field of
politics that a "corrupt and illegal
practices prevention net" wns passed
in 1883, which contains very minute
and stringent provisions. Not only
aro English politics more corrupt than
our own, but they nre moro brutal and
ferocious. Tlio Belfast riots nro a
conspicuous example, but if wo deem
them exceptional what sliull wo sny to
the other terrible industrial nnd
political riots tliat liavo disfigured the
history of England during the reign of
Victoria; what shall wo sny to the fnct
that the mob siunsiietl tho windows of
Wellington's house and stoned his
carriage; that Gladstone's carriage has
been repeatedly stoned; thnt election
mobs have often assaulted and beaten
English gentlemen of rank and family,
who wero candidates or wero partisans
of the candidate) At the last English
election Messrs. Chamberlain aud
Lluellen, political speakers of high
rank, were rudely hustled from the
platform by ti crowd and a dozen meetings were utterly wrecked. With
limited suffrage, compared with our
universal ballot, thero is more corruption, brutality and riot at English elections than at uur own. The only exception is at the South, where the raco
quarrels between tho ruling whites nnd
the recently servile blacks explode in
occasional outrages of blood and fraud.
Where slavery did not exist at the outbreak of the war our American politics
are both purer and more peaceable
than those of our English cousins.
The American is given to brass bands
and processions, but seldom falls to
fighting; while election rioting has
always beon part of the daily sport of
tho canvass during English elections.
Practical politics was relatively very
dirty and ferocious business in the
early days of the republic. To-day
President Cleveland is described by
enterprising partisan journalism as
suspected of a real estate speculation.
Georgo Washington was openly accused of speculation in corner lots in
tho capital ho laid out. John Marshall was charged with boing bribed
by British gold. The press and pamphlets of tho days of Washington,
Adams, Hamilton and Jefferson were
full of vile charge, against theso great
men, Hamilton's oapcrs describe a
cabinet mooting where Washington
broke into profanity on reading a
newspaper article charging him with a
treasonable purpose to make himself
king. Coarse caricatures were circulated depicting hiin aa a dethroned
king placed upon the guillotine. Tho
National Gazette, published at Washington by Freneau, a oreature of Jefferson's, assailed Washington with most
venomous vituperation, and a Philadelphia paper on the occasion of
Washington's retirement from office
said: " The man who is the source of
all our country's misery is this day reduced to .the rank of his fellow citizens, and has no longer the power to
multiply the woes of these United
States. Every heart whioh feels for
the liberty and happiness of the people
must now rejoice. So ferocious was
was party spirit that Washington gave
the lie aud was knocked down at nn
Alexandria election. Mrs. Washington finding a stain on Iter drawing
ruom wall paper, burst out with:
" It was no federalist', nono but a
filthy democrat would mark tho wall
with his good-for-nothing head," Giles
of Virginia in coiuiress moved nine
resolutions of censure against Hamilton, charging him with stock jobbing
with the public securities while secretary of the treasury. James Monroe
revived the charges with great bitterness. Hamilton was branded by the
papers of his day as an aristocrat and
a corruptionist, nnd Hamilton denounced Jefferson ns Ihe author or instigator of the articles. Hamilton was
wu stoned in publio nnd John Jny
hung in effigy. The diary of John
Adams describes the horrid rancor of
the press and the tertiblo hate between men of different parties, to ihe
point that families divided tor life,
men cut each other in the street.
Hamilton denounced Burr with fierce
personal bitterness on nll publie and
private occasions, and died in u due).
So did hia son; so did aoveral New
York editors of tlint day. Andrew
Jackson wns aiming tho conspicuous
defamers of WasliYiigton. Jefferson
wu charged by the vile press of thc
day with incest nnd gross debauchery
in a campaign lampoon on "LongTom
and Dusky Snil." DeWitt Clinton in
publio and private speech and in print
assailed Martin Van Huron willi oh
scene libel and \ ulgar denunciation,
and Clintun's wife, after his death,
turned her back on President Van
Buren when lm offered her liis liund nt
Saratoga, An nvalaucbo of dirt was
poured upon Jackson's family hfo,
which actually drove bia excellent
wife to tbe grave; nud hu was caricatured as a hangman because he hud
executed the Britisli spies Aibulbtlut
and Ainbrister. At Jackson's public
receptions whisky wa. served to nny
body that cured to drink il. When
Gov. Sewnr.l was Inaugurated nt Albany in 18:1!) he g.ivu a great baiiqut't,
and lliu way it was coiMumud liy the
wings is thus described by a writer of
tlint day:
"Four or fivo thousand people assembled, mnde u general rush into'
the house, jumped upon the table,
broke it down, caught the roost turkey by the legs, hallooing, 'Hurrah
for Seward,' broke all the champagne
and other wine bottles, nnd actually
carried this carouse to suoh a be'ght
that the superintendents of the feast
were obliged to call in the civil authorities."
Theso facts go far to show that the
charge that we have fallen away frightfully from the publio opinion of the
days when the fathers of the republic
ruled our politics lias uo historical
foundation. Our political manners,
methods and morals ore for less barbarous than they were in those "good
old days" when political hostility precipitated duels, alienated the closest
friends in society, religion and business; when fathers refused to speak to
sons and no social ties of blood were
strong enough to resist the pressure of
political hates. Tho Chicago Journal
spoke a truo word the other day when
it said, of the tendency of the timo to
magnify crime and to inculcate a false
belief that the administration of publio
affairs is totally depraved, that "men
assert wildly sometimes that nil politicians are open to bribery and that
every man in public life has his price.
Nothing could he farther from the
truth. The great majority of our publio men are above the reach of pecuniary corruption."—Portland Oregonian.

the Columiuan Newspaper nml

joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known ns tho
" Hritisb Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern lias been for
nearly a year owned aud controlled by
tbu British Columbia Stationery und
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria ami Vancouver, Tho object of
(lie new company is to continue tbo publication of the BlUTlsii Coij.'Miiux news*
paper ami carry ou a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whose individual interest it will be
tu promote tbe development, especially
of tbo Mainland. Tliere will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the innnngctiieiit of the establishment, ami its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
TheCoLt'.MitiAN will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial polities, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in tbe public interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate1 from
any other business, the book and
fetatic/uery- establishment iu this city
having been token over by Mr. T, K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
iu hi* own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable tlmt a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patron*
ago on the ground that it is engaged tn
au enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It risks that the Col*
umwan bo judged on its own merits ami
supported only su loug as its policy is
consistent with its professions. In con*
serjuoneo of this business change all ao*

without delay so thnt the books of tho
