current Events and Opinions.
Just now the political atmosphere
of Oreat Britain ie in a disturbed
condition. Gladstone has not re-
realed hiB polioy for Ireland to the
uttermost, snd no one can suy just
now how far he will go in favor of
Home Rule nntil he says the word
himself. He* is known to have both
n land polioy and one about Local
Government. He makes nearly or
quite a unit of these. Tliere never
was a state of more intense expectation and anxiety in time of peace
than now exists in Great Britain.
It is not believed that Gludstone
will go as far as the Parnellites
have demanded. He is now attempting to bridge over the gulf. One
thing is certain, the relation of Ireland to Great Britain will not be
just what it was before the agitation
for Home Bute began. There may
be a great deal of dissatisfaction,
but the situation is moro hopeful
than it was some months ago. Not
thut any important concessions had
been mode, but rather because there
has been some earnest discussion,
nnd there is a better knowledge of
tho real condition nnd wants of Ireland on the part of tliose who will
be called to settle the question in
Parliament—.8 F. Bulletin.

Since Mr. Edison tailed attention
to hiB scheme of air telegraphy, recently applied with such success,
facts have been made known that
give rise to the doubt if he is really
entitled to be regarded its the sole
inventor or discoverer of the idea.
The case does not even seem to be
one of coincident discovery if a story
from Kansas Oity is true, which declares that Mr. Edison actually got
his idea of telegraphy by induction
from Mr. William Wiley Smith, an
electrician of that city. It is asserted that in 1880 Mr. Smith, whilo
making experiments with the telephone, by wliich the sounds of a
concert were transmitted from
Kingstown, Ind., to Indianapolis,
learned that the music had also been
heard in Richmond, a point with
which he had no direct connection,
Hn gave this curious phenomenon
much thought, and reached the con.
elusion that the matter was to be ex-
plained by the principles of induction, there being several parallel
wires on the poles he was operating
ulong. Convinced of this fact, he
began experimenting to put his dis
covery to practical use, and to that
end constructed an apparatus on
which he secured a patent in 1881.
Something more than a yoar ago Mr.
Smith associated with him in his inventions Mr. Edison and Mr. E. S.
Gilliland, who he learned were ex
perimenting in the same line. It
wos due to their combined investigations that Mr. Edison finally
triumphed and perfected the plan
fint successfully tested on the Staten
Island Railway. Mr. Smith recently said of Mr. Edison: he is one of
the most remarkable men of the age.
Only tell him what you want to accomplish and he will provide you
with an instrument for the purpose.
The success of car telegraphy is
greatly due to him. He took hold
of it and perfected tho apparatus
which I had outlined, and so is on-
titled to share with me whatever
glory and profit it will bring. He
is still at work on the problem of
induction, and hopes to apply this
invention of ours in such a way that
ships at sea many ' miles apart can
exchange messages of any length by
signals. This he expects to accomplish by means of using a baloon
kite, with metallic coating—tin foil,
I believe—soaring several hundred
feet above deck and controlled by a
fine wire." By this means it is believed tolegfaphing will be done
from island to island or between
main shores much more cheaply than
by the present cable system. It
is interesting to note in this
connection that a young man of Cin-
uinatti named Silvey, claims to have
discovered this principle of induction
most curiously three years ago, when
lie was working some electrical experiments on his father's farm. He
iad a series of wires rigged up in the
irehard, and in the course of his investigations discovered that the
lirect current of one wire wus repro-
luoed along another forty feet dis-
ant by induction, and he secured a
latent, in accordance with this dis-
overy, on an instrument ho termed
i resonator. Mr. Silvey now claims
iriority in the discovery. As an
ndication of the peculiar concurrence
f ideas in the discoveries of groat
ruths and principles, it is of value
ere to note that in 1870 a member
f tho fnter-Oeeim staff had Humerus interviews with an eccentric in-
i vidua] in this city known familiarly
s Professor Woodman, who was
lien wrestling, to the verge of mad-
ess, with a subtle philosophy em-
racing new principles iu the law of
liysios, and among his pretended
iscoverics were a means to control
the explosive quality of steam, and
a plan to tele,raph by induction.
He succeeded in perfecting a boiler
of ordinary tensile strength tbat
held steam at a pressure of 500
pounds to the square ineh with no
other vent than that of a gun
tube in a half-inoh gaspipe. He did
not succeed, as far as we have been
able to ascertain, in applying his induction principle, chiefly, perhaps,
through lack of means und tho inability to enlist the service of capital in what seemed to be visionary
schemes. He used to insist, however, with the greatest vehemence,
indeed with irrational enthusiasm,
that telegraphy by induction would
be the great discovery of the future,
"and," ho added with some' bitterness, "that man Edison will probably, get *e credit of it". Hex explained his theory by the declaration
that he had chemically determined
the existence of a third atmospheric
element, to whioh he gave the name
Verdone, the full understanding of
which, he said, would revolutionise
the old philosophy and prove so-
called non-conducting properties
sensitive under special conditions.
The experience with air telegraphy
is simply of a kind with that attending the majority of great inventions.
The result of years of patient thought
investigation, and the study of
phenomena, it is not at all strange
that several minds should within
the same period be engaged with
corresponding explorations. We
have but to recall the telephone case
to find an illustration, when almost
simultaneously Edison, Professor
Gray, and Bell came before the public with practioal solutions' of the
problem. All men do not patent
their ideas, nor do they always succeed in getting them into patentable
form, but few things are commoner
than a patent embodying the ideas
of several and far-removed persons.

*il«rd«y Morning, April S, IBM.
The Colonist makes u very good
point on tho Times in relation to intemperate expressions used towards
political opponents. During the
Riol debate in the House of Commons, the Globe mado uso of some
very unparliamentary expressions
respecting the Dominion Government and its supporters—expressions
for which wc think there is no justification. Comparing these with
epithets applied by the Times to the
government of British Columbia and
its supporters, there is a very striking resemblance, and it must be a
matter of sincere regret to see this
very objectionable state of journalism introduced into the Pacific
province.
Commenting upon tho conduct of
President Cleveland during thn first
year of his administration, just completed, the Washington Critic comes
to tho conclusion that tho record is
sufficient to convince tho friends of
civil service reform ''that the administration has striven, sincerely
striven," to carry out the principles
of reform to whicli it was pledged.
There have been cases of removal in
which it seems that nothing but political considerations were allowed to
exercise an influence, and there have
been mistakes where the judgment
or the information of the President
was ut fault j but these exceptions
are not a sufficient ground upon
which to accuse him of perfidy. We
have faith in the integrity of President Cleveland yet.
A few days ago we published a
paper on Edison's new developments
in electricity, by which he hopes to
be able to send messages considerable distances without the uid of a
wire. While this extraordinary dis*
co\tky is being fiut into practicul
shape, ft man* named Turnbull is
looming up iu the scientific world
with a new and wonderft-l improve-
mentron the telephone. By means
of this invention persons have conversed over the wires between Now
York and Washington, and the inventor is arranging for a trial
through the Atlantic cable, from
Ne.w-.Ybrk to London. He claims
that from New York he will be able
to converse with London, San Francisco, and any other city with which
there is direct wire connection. This
is cortainly an age of wonders!
Chinese Indemnity.
On the fourth page of this paper
we publish the full text of a resolution proposed by Mr. Orr for the
appointment of a committee ^consider the question of the future
capital of British Columbia. This
resolution seems to have been received with some merriment by the
press und some of the statesmen of
Victoria, but it is one, nevertheless,
which deserves the most serious consideration, and which may be pressed
upon the attention of the people of
tliis province sooner than some persons expect. The present government buildings will have to be replaced before many years pass, and
tho expense of the erection of new
ones would be considerable. No one
knows how soon a demand may be
made for new buildings, nnd if there
is going to be any change in the location of tho capital, that change
should be determined before any
additional outlay of this kind has
been incurred. It is evident to any
disinterested observer that the present location of the capital buildings
is very far from being central either
with respect to territory or population. Geographically it could scarcely be further from the centre. Population is sure to increase much more
rapidly on the mainland,than on the
island, and the inconvenience of the
present urraugement will become
more and more evident. Hitherto
Victoria has heen the commercial
metropolis ofthe province, a position
she cannot expect to maintain when
operations have begun on the Canadian Pacific railway. Tlie commercial centre will then lie on the mainland, whence all goods will be dis
tributed. In view of tliese facts,
the resolution of Mr. Orr ought to
receive more than passing notice,
both in the house and in the country. Tt has always seemed to us a
mistake for mainland constituencies
to elect non-residents ns their representatives. Ho long ns this practice
continues, the interests of theae constituencies may be oxpected to sufli-r
whenever they seem to come, into
competition witli tho local interests,
of the representatives. In view of
the very serious questions which are
sure to come forward for settlement
in the near future, every constituency ou the mainland ought to resolve that it will not sustain any
candidate at tho coining election
who resides on Vancouver Island,
or whose personal interests are not
fully identical with its own. Of
course this rule cannot be applied to
members of the cabinet, who must
necessarily rcsido at the scat of government, but whose interests are
nevertheless in the constituencies
they represent. It is not too soon
now to be discussing this question
and considering whether the present
circumstances and future possibilities arc not sufficiently grave to cnll
for intelligent, united and vigorous
action.

A majority of the American
papers on the Pacific Coast protest
against the proposal to indemnify
the Chinese who were robbed and
abused and murdered in the lute
riots. It is contended that in all
civilized states the laws afford ample
protection to all persons, and to
these laws the appeal should be
taken for redress. In uncivilized
countries only has it been customary
to demand indemnity from the gov
eminent for such outrages. This
custom has arisen from tbe fact tbat
in these countries the judicial systems aro usually imperfect and un-
reliable, nnd under them n foreigner
cannot expect justice. It is declared,
therefore, that payment of indemnity
to the Chinese would amount to a
confession that tlio stntes and territories where theso outrages were
committed aro not civilized, and
tbat in them tho administration of
justice cannot be relied upon.
Against such an admission as tliis
tbe newspapers protest, of course,
but wc uro not sure tliat the admission can be wholly avoided. It is a
fact beyond dispute that justice bus
not been done to tliose who were
guilty of assaulting the Chinese,
Although some of them were arrested, and it was a mutter of public
notoriety that they took part iu these
outrages, the juries before whom
tbey oome invariably returned a
verdict of not guilty. Not only so,
but in some cases it was intimated
with a great deal of publicity that
any juryman who attempted to convict these men, and any witness
who furniihed Unnecessary evidence
against them, need not expect to escape the ■ vengeance 6f the-anti-
Chinese organizations I The news-
papen of the coast may•_ say what
they like, but the Ohm*** oUtragea
are a difgraeo to civilisation, and a
blot on the Mato*. of the United
Statea The boast that all men are
free and equal is an empty boast, so
far its they an concerned.

got 2 weeks in gaol, and the money
was returned to the Italian. Not satisfied with the recovery of his money,

that he could not comply with the
Italian's demand.
The Victoria Mails*—Oii Tuesday

afternoon the: mail steamer arrived at
3:30, but yesterday she did not put in

A Stags Accident.—An accident
occurred to one of the Port Moody
stages on Thursday night which might
have been very serious. Two stages
were on their way from-Port Moody to
this city, after the arrival of the train,:
and' both had a number of passengers.
Cuming up a steep hill one of the
horses in the first stage, driven by Mr.
Conner, balked and refused to go.
The driver whipped him for some time
without effect, and then began pounding him over the head with a stick.
All the passengers got out except Mr.
Justice Walkem and a lady, who remained in the vehicle. Finally, the
lady' became ao frightened that she
was taken out, and was followed by
the judge. Tlie aecond stage, driven
by Air. Plumb, had arrived, and some
one took a stone and struck the balky
horse a severe blow on the
head ■ This, made the team pluuge,
overturning the itagu and breaking it.
It is very fortunate that there were no
passongers within, for the consequences
might nave been serious ind even fatal.
Tho upsetting of Conner's stage frightened Plnmb s hones and they began
backing down hill until the stage narrowly escaped going orer also, Ilie
passengeis were put in the unbroken
stage and started for this city. By
the time they had reached the Brunette bridge the light went out, the
oil having been all consumed, and
the remainder uf the trip had to be
made in tolal darkness. The Isdy
passenger was completely prostrated
with fright and rough usage, and
Mr. Justice Walkem bears a senr under his' right eye as a memento of the
occasion. In conversation thc judge
expressed much indignation at the
badness of the stage service between
this city and Purt Moody, and stated
that if any accident shuuld happen
undor such circumstances the stage
lino might be held liable for heavy
damages. No bulky horso should be
allowed in n stage on these hills, and
all stages shuuld be compelled tu carry
efficient lights when the nights are
dark.
That slight cold you think so little of
may prove the forerunner of a complaint
that may be fatal. Avoid this result hy
taking Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, the best
of known remedies for colds, coughs,
catarrhs, bronchitis, incipient consumption, and all other throat and lung dis-
eases.	
Sunday School Convention.
A meeting of S.S. teachersand friends
of the different protestant denominations was held in tlm C. T. U. reading
room on Tuesday evening. Uov. Mr.
Lennie was called to the chair and Mr.
C. E. C, Brown appointed secretary.
The chairman explained the object of
the meeting to be to make arrangements for holding * Sunday-school
convention ' in this city during the
month of April, probably commencing
about the 23rd. Tbe Rev. Mr. Watson, after giving further particulars,
moved*, and it was unanimously decided, tu hold such n convention. A general committee tu name the various
exeoutive committees was then appointed, which mode the following
appointments:

The (Age or Ah Hue.
This case was. heard before Capt.
Pittendrigh, J. P., on Wednesday.
Some nf the circumstances of the cose
have already been noticed. The prisoner is charged with tho wilful miir-
dor of one Ah Foong near Spence's
Bridge in August, 1883. Tho matter
came up again for the examination of
further evidence.
Mr, Moresby deposed' that he went
with h party to the grave of Ah Foong;
had the body exhumed and tnkon down
to New Westminster, where he called
on Dr. Trew to examine it, which the
doctor did In his presence.
Dr. Trow deposed that ho fuund a
bullet hole in   the' forehead of  Ah
proved that he waa the last person in
whose company Ah Foong was seen
alive, and that a few hours bofore his
death; that Ah Foong bad a considerable sum uf money, while prisoner had
none, but had a 38-calibre revolver
which he loaded before they started,
he remarking he was going to kill anyone who meddled with them, adding
as a proot of his prowess with the pistol that he killed a white butcher with
it in San Francisco; and, lastly, the
prosecution traced to the possession of
prisoner a gold ring which was last
seen on Foong's hand when ho and
prisoner left camp together.
The prisoner was fully committed
for trial on the charge of wilful murder. Mr. Bole for prosecution; Mr.
Atkinson for the defence.
Though the soil of Virginia grows the
best tobacco leaf in the world, it docs
not grow equal qualities. The production even ol adjoining counties is often
quite different, the one producing leaf
which at once deteriorates if grown in
the other. The leaf of tho "Myrtle
Navy" is the production of the choice
sections of the State, which, through
some combinations of local influence,
produce a better quality thau any others.
This is shown by its always commanding
a higher price than auy other smoking
leaf.
Gold strike at Lillooet.
Mr. E. Allen, M. P. P., received a
letter from Lillooet, dated 22d March,
which states that about ten days previous to that date five Chinese went up
Cayoosh creek prospecting. They returned aud took out fifteen mining
licenses and .recorded fifteen claims.
During the past few days about 100
men have gone tu the locality. They
say little, but from the number that
have gone in the prospects must be
good. They go about ten miles above
the mill, and then there is seven or
eight miles of Cayoosh Creek that will
pay, and probably more beyond where
they went. They say the country is
open, with plenty of bars and benches
on the creek. No one as yet knows
exactly the worth of the discovery, but
all say it is very good. The gold is
coarse. The placo where the gold is
struok is one mile from the town of
Lillooet, and then extends up the creek
in a northwesterly direction. It runs
in the same direction and from the
same mountain ss Bridgo creek, from
which latter it is distant about fifteen
miles. There can be no doubt as to
the information received, and the only
thing strange about it is that the creek
chould nut have been located before.
Access to the mines is easy, it being
but forty-seven miles from tfie town of
Lytton, up the Fruer, or by wagon
road from Ashcroft to Cargylea and
thence along the Marble Canyon road
fo Lillooet.- Colonist.
Foong aud a bullet which appeared to
be. u US-calibre revolver bullet inside
tho skull; there was nlso another hole
in the base of the skull.
Mr. Hole directed his worship's attention to the, fact that the evidence
fur the prosecution, unless displaced,
was more than prima facie; it was absolutely overwhelming. First, it was
shown that the prisoner gave a false
account of himself; again, it was clearly
Mr. R. A, Harrison, Chemist and
Druggist, DuunvUte, Out, writes: "I
can with confidence recommend Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Di covcry and
Dyspeptic Cure for Dyspepsia, Impure
Blood, Pimples ou the Face, Biliousness
and Constipation- such coses having
come under my personal observation."

The Blel Debate.
Hon. Edward Blake closed his
speech on the Riel debate in the following striking words: "I have been
threatened by hon. gentlemen opposite
more than unco during this debate with
the political annihilation of the Liberal
party whioh they claimed to know. I
am well satisfied that the vote which I
shall give is an inexpedient vote, and
if politics were a game I should be
making a false move. I should be glad
to reach a conclusion different frum
that held by gentlemen opposite, that
this is likely tu weaken my position and
weaken my influence. But it cannot
be said of one of us, least of all the
humble individual whu addresses you,
that his retaining a share of the publia
confidence, the lead oi a party, or a
seat in Parliament, is essential, or even
highly important to the public interest,
while it must be said of all of us that
what is needed is not that we should
retain, but that we should deserve the
public confidence, not that we should
keep, but that whilo we keep we should
honestly use our seats in Parliament.
To act otherwise would be to grasp at
a shadow, and lose the substance. We
may be wrong: we must be true; we
ahould be resolved to keep unstained
our publio careers. I am unable honestly to differ from the view that it is
deeply tu be regretted that this execution should hare been allowed to tako
place, and therefore in favor of that
view I must record my vote."

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
On Monday Hon. Mr. Duck delivered his budget speech. After referring
tu tho wild and unfounded statements
put fcrward by the opposition in relation to the fiiianccs of the country, he
said the indebtedness of thc province
in 1871 was $1,405,000. At the time
cf Confederation an equalization of liabilities gave us 81,05(1,200 as a recognized asset, on which interest is paid at
tho rate of 5 por cent. Iti consideration
of this asset wo had surrendered uur
customs, harbor dues, excise, and postal revenue, which then amounted
annually to 9203,157. The revenue
and expenditure for 1871 were about
equal, but tho provincial debt required
8.160,000, nnd littlo was left for public works—only about 8149,000. The
hon. gentleman followed the course of
financiul ntfuirs frum that date, and
pointed out the vast strides that hud
been tuken. Since 188JJ there had
been a yearly increase oyer the aver-
ago previous annual revenue of §200,-
000, and nn increase of 50 por cent, in
revenue, a large development in agricultural and other resources, he
thought, wero proof of tho claim of
the present goceriirnaut to publio confidence. The total net revenue since
confederation had been 87,337,502.
During the year 1885 thu land sales
had produced nearly 9200,000. Good
rinds bud been uf great benefit tu the
miner, the trader and the farmer. In
1884 the increase in the administration of justice had been 917,000 uver
the previous year, and there had since
been an increaso to 930,000. This increase was owing to increased population and the fact that now jurors were
paid by the day while on duty. In
1871 the appropriation for education
amounted tu only 915,000; in 1883 it
had reached 968,053, and it wub now
8100,000. In Ontario the cost of education was 27 cents per capita, against
92 in thia province. A comparison of
the receipts and expenditures uf the
province previous tu and since the accession of the present government
showed that in spite ofthe expenditure
last year on public works of 218,000,
and the liability uf uver 103,000 with
whioh the government accepted office,
there had been at the end of December
last an over-draft of only 9120,454, and
on tho 30th June uext this wuuld be
brought down tu 9120,000. Judging
by tho result of the financiering of the
previous government this administration would have been warranted in
closing its term of office with a liability
of over 9400,000, For the coming
year land sales had been estimated to
yield 8100,000. An increase had been
found neceBB&ry in education and the
administration of justice. The total
amount required to the 30tlv June,
1886, was 8519,870; resources available fur that period, 9384,875, leaving
a balance, after deducting lapsed balance, uf 8114,094 tu be pruvided fur..
Tlie appropriations fur the coming
fiscal your were 8124,363 in excess of
revenue, and these twu deficits would
require an overdraft of 8249,367. All
things cunsidered, he thuught the
finances uf the country were in a most
satisfactory condition.
Mr. Beaven aaid tho speech of tho
Minister of Finance was disappointing,
and tho finances were in a most deplorable condition. Ho accused the
government uf deception and all sorts
of sins, and declared that the prosperity uf the country was due to causes
over which they had no control. The
estimates he Baid wero misleading and
unreliable, nnd the whole fabric was
rotten and unsafe.
A discussion took place on the Vancouver incorporation bill, somo of tho
island members endeavoring to havo it
thrown out, but without success. In
the municipalities amendment net it
was provided that the mayor, reovo,
ur presiding officer at uny council
meeting could only voto on a tie, und
could have no second vote; also, that
municipalities could grant aid to educational institutions or hospitals; that
drainage ordorod by the council may
be  paid for by a rato levied ou the
firoperty benefited; and that persons
iable for road tax may, in lieu thereof,
perform two days' statute labor.
On Tuesday Mr. Beavon continued
tu criticise the financial statement of
the province. His criticisms were replied to by Hon. Mr. Smithe at con
sidcrable length. Tho hon. gentleman
denied that tho appropriations had
been distributed unfairly among (lie
constituencies. With regard to the
2,000,000 acres given away in the Peace
river country, he could easily and satisfactorily explain why they had been
given away. The honorablo lender nf
the opposition knew very well that if
he had remained iu otlice tho drydock
would not have advanced a singlo step
further than it was four years ago. Tho
Dominion government had absolutely
refused to pay any money un dry dock
account, and thu country generally had
fully mode up ita mind that tho provincial funds should no longer be absorbed
completely in that une work while the
various districts wore starving for roads
etc., to fncilittite settlement. Thu
prosont government saw the necessity
fur scouring the building of the duck
ns a Dominion enterprise nnd to secure
railway facilities for tho country. It
was in order to make this arrangement
that tho 2,000,000 acres iu Peace river
had boeii given, and nlso to si'uuro tho
construction of the Island railway and
to open the fertile lands on thu east
coast tu settlement. Thn lands that
had heen givon away very few
people knew at the time wore tbo
property of tho province—thoy weru
almost in the arctic regions. Theso
had been valued as worth 83 00
per acre by the honorable member fnr
Cassiar, though   the  opposition hail
1884 it reaohed 8603,000; in 1885,
8600,000. Now, it wuj contended
that the increase in. revenue receipts
was solely on account of land sales,
but this was not so. The largo receipts from land sales was due to tho
energy of the government in placing
settlers on lands. Thero was a provision that no one could purchase more
than 040 ucres, thus shutting out
speculators. The largo area sold at
Farwell had beon harped upon, but
what was it? One hundred and;fifty
thousand acres hud beou applied for
and only 1100 sold to tho applicant,
Thero had boen a large revenue from
land sales, and there was also a large
increaso in free minors' certificates,
which certainly cuuld not bo placed to
railway construction. Tliere was also
au increase in licenses'. In tho year
1882 the recuipts from provincial vc\
enuo tux were but $28,000 Durin

000 provincial revenue tax, more than
doublo that collected in 1882. In
1883, when the present governim-nt
took ollice, llmre waa al once n bound
forward, and 847,000 was collected for
provincial revenue. Either the population of the country had doubled or
the previous government Imd been
very lax in their collections, His honorable friend seemed to object to
securing the drydock refund from the
Dominion, and when it was secured, of
spending it. Hut what were the results from receiving this? New works
had been constructed—tho Ashcroft
bridge, the gaol at New Westminster,
und important roads on the mniiilaud,
the gaol at Victoria, Point Ellioo
bridge, and uther necessary public
works, Settlers had-been pouring
into Now Westminster district. Tlie
outsido district of Alberni hud been
settled-but this wuuld not have been
thu case if his honorable friend had
beon iu power—he would simply have
told settlers that there were no funds
to construct roads, and thus impeded the progress of the country.
Speaking of the overdraft the Premier said it would have beun the easiest thing possible to havo kept thc expenditure down to tho amount of actual revenue, but not if the government
had to do.that whicli would unable
newcomers to be aided in developing
milling and agricultural districts. The
estimates had to be provided with thut
end in view, and the government honestly admitted that they did not expect the revenue to equal tho required
rate of expenditure, although it was
very probable that certain estimates of
revenue—land sales fur instance—had
beon under-rated, and thut the sum
would be more than doublo that anticipated, because the conditions whicli
reduced the placing prospect fro land
sales at 8200,000 a your ago, wore nuw
about to ensue," aiid 14,000 or 15,000
acres of valuable land at Coal Harbor
be capable of being placed un the
market willi the possibility of covering
the deficit. Members who wero claiming that the expenditure hud been too
great, wero all tho timo clamoring for
muro uioneytu be spent in thoir districts. The present govornmont had
given, for example, more to Kootenay,
which was represented by a member in
oppnsitfoh to if, than hnd the late
government when in office. The district had received full justice as had
all other districts. He had received
numberless assurances that never in
tho history of the provinco had money
beeu expended on roads and bridges
iu the Hig Itend country to such advantage as it had during the regime
uf the presont government. He pru-
phesied that during thu development
of the late mining discoveries there
would bo more men in the provinco
than had over luft in consequence of
tho cessation cf railway work in British Columbia. The presont guvernment hnd tho hearty support of the
house ami the country, and it would bo
admitted that tlio present course was
tho best that could have been adopted
—that it was better not to keep tho requirements of tho country back hy Cutting down the estimates, but to make
a special provision for the excess of
espumlitnre which, from the channels
into whicli it had gono,shnuld in reality
bo charged to capital accuunt.
Prehistoric -Researches,
The Bureau of Ethnology under tho

has beon making an exhaustive examination of tho mound remains east of
the Mississippi river, and of the ruined

London, March 30.— Mr. Chamberlain
and Trevelyan are preparing a plan of
open hostility to the government. They
are arranging to make a statement to the
country through the house of commons
of their reasons for leaving the cabinet,
and will accompany this statement with
a propusal of n measure of govemment
for Ireland, whicli they will jointly prepare. They will endeavor to consolidate
all opponents of Mr. Gladstone to the
support of their scheme. The house of
commons, by a vote of 258 to 127, rcjeot-
od Mr. Scton's motion, urging that negotiations bo entered into with other countries, with the object of the establishment of a universal penny postage. Mr.
Charles Cameron, radical member for
Glasgow, introduced a measure for the
(liseitdowment of the Church of Scotland.
The motion was rejected by a vote of 237
to 1*2-3. The tories calculate that alxty
wings and forty radicals will secede from
Mr. Gladstone's party. Reports from all
quarters of Ireland, sent to Mr. Glad*
stone, indicate the people are in a state
of feverish excitement and that tho failure of the home rule policy will lead to
an outburst of violence. A fire in the
English timber yard at Peterborough
destroyed $500,000 worth of stock.
London, Apr. 1.—Tho cabinet discussed the scheme of buying out the Irish
landlords. In consequence of the unfavorable attitude of the Scotch Liberal
association, Gladstone proposed to modify his project in several particulars, but
no agreement could he reached by the
cabinet. It now seems probable the project will be withdrawn. It is reported
Hussia has notified the powers of her intention to occupy Bulgaria in the event
of Prince Alexander's final refusal
to accept the governorship of

tlie Russian govemment has definitely
decided to occupy Bulgaria within a few
weeks unless Prince Alexander submits
to the wishes of Russia. After tho cubi-
net council had adjourned tliis afternoon
•the uiinistflrs were, hastily summoned
together. The meeting was held in Mr.
Gladstone's room in the house of commons. This second meeting ia said to
have been called because of the report

Thia is the motion proposed by Mr.
rr in the local legislature:
Whereas, under aud by virtue of a
reclamation, made and issued on the
juiteenth day of February, one thou*
and eight hundred and lifty-nine, the
Ue of the present oity of New West-
ainster was laid out as tho capital of
he colony of British Columbia, as
hen defined aud existing; and, where-
,b, under and by virtue of an not of
larliainent made and passed in the
tf>th and 30th yoars of tho reign of
ler Majesty Queen Victoria, intituled
'The British Columbia Act, 1806,"
tnd the proclamation thereof made by
;ho governor of British Columbia upon
he nineteenth day of November, ono
rhousand eight hundred and sixty-six,
lie formerly separate colony of Van-
touvor Island und its dependencies
ras united with the formerly separate
toluny of British Columbia and its
lepeudoncios, undor tho name uf tho
joluny of British C-dumbia; and,
ivliert-its, the uity of New Westminster
lecamo the capital of tho united colo*
iio» of Vancouver Island and British
Columbia; nud, whereas, by resolution
af the legislative twaemby of British
Coiumbin dated the 2nd day of April,
une thousand eight hundred and sixty*
eight, it was resolved that the oity of
Victoria, on Vancouver Island, should
be proclaimed the capital of British
Columbia; and, whereas, under and by
virtue of a proclamation mado and
issued on the 25th d-.y of May, one
thousand eight hundred and sixty-
eight, until otherwise appointed, the
city of Victoria, in tho colony of British Columbia, was declared, for all
purposes whatsoever, the capital and
seat of government of thu united colony
of Britisli Columbia; and, wherens,
under and by virtue of a proclamation
made and issued on tlie twentieth day
of July, one thousand eight hundred
and seventy-one, the colony of British
Columbia waa declared as federated
with the Dominion of Canada, under
the title of tho province of British Columbia; and, whereas, from the date
of tho removal of tho capital the interior of thc province has been practically isolated, tho only means of communicating with the outer world being
by steamship lines to and from San
Franciaco and Victoria, aud Puget
Sound and Victoria, thereby causing
the latter port to be the only distributing centre fur' exports, import*-,
and mail matter; and, whereas, the
completion uf the Canadian Pacific
railway will at onco entirely revolutionize the heretofore existing trade
centres-jind, whereaB, it has become
necessary to provide more suitable
accommodation for the legislative assembly, thu supreme court, and other
public offices; and, whereas, such provision will entail the expenditure of a
large sura of money; and, whereas,
the present capital is so situated as to
be easily assailed by an enemy from
land and water; und, whereas, the
terminus of the Canadian Pacitio railway has been definitely and permanently fixed on Burrard Inlet, it is
therefore expedient that the capital of
this province should be changed to
some point on that great imperial and
transcontinental highway; Be it therefore resolved, that the matter be referred to a select committee, who shall
decide the most desirable site for a
•■imiaiicnt capital, and report to this
house without deluy. Suchcotnmittue

up the skin and set off full speed. But
he accidentally dropped it, just as the
old man was following hard upon the
scent. The hide fell by the creek side,
where everybody could have eyed it,
and I'd tu jump down aud hide it under the log. If the old man hadn't
beeu short-sighted, ho wuuld have
scented tho wholo thing, and we might
have had to "git," Wo hunted panther for sumo timo and tho amount of
fun we got out of tho situation was
immense. Tt still gtes on, for we never split; but when the girls got a
Bight of this number of Thk Buitisu
Columbian, I guess there'll be sounds
of revelry hoard in this establishment.
A Panther Tale.
It was Sunday afternoon. We had
been to church in thc morning, und
thu walk over the Serpentine fiats, the
hot weather and n good dinner all con*
Bpired to induce a general disinclination for exertion uf any kind. So wo
sat as comfortably us a couple of chairs
each could make us, lazily smoking
our cigarettes. It was a glorious day,
tou, good for resting in tho house, and
the girls had gone foresting into the
woods, over the aecond creek, to gather
some wild flowers for the table.   But—
"Satan finds some mischief still,
For Idle hands to do."
And certain it is, as we sat on, that
Dick ejaculated: "Let's go and scare
those girls!"
"All right; but how is it to be
done T said I.
"Oh, we'll got that panther skin of
mine and stick *it in a bush on thoir
way home."
But it struok me that a panther
skin as a "property" could be used to
better advantage. So we fetched it
down accordingly, and by the help of
a little cord it was soon secured, iu
aome' measure, round my body. It
would havo done your oyes good to
have seen the few preliminary walks
round that room in panther guise. The
tail waa a valuable accession, though it
waB as dillicult to matiago gracefully ns
a lady's train upon tho stage, on her
lirst night. Did it nevor striko you at
what an immense cost the ovolution of
man from monkey wus consummated?
What a noble animal tho British lion
looks iu some of PihmM old cartoons,
with bis hands in his pockets and his
tail hanging gracefully over his loft
wrist! And a tail would be far moro
ornamental to most men, who put
their reason to very little uso. Tales
of npes iu tnonkoy kuowledgo show
that reason is a very poor apology for
a tail.    Alan! for the missing link!
It acted splendidly. Wo wont for
the trail, hid bohind some bushes and
waited fur tho ladies. The dog was
to-.ling nfter n squirrel or n chipmunk
and so did not discover us,
"On your hands and knees; they're
coming," said Dick.
I got down and crawled over some
dead sticks, making them crack loudly,
all Ihe while shaking with suppressed
laughter. They eame! ■ They saw!!
They fled I!! The way they flew along
that trail, skidded along the fallen log
over tho big creok, and disappeared towards the house, was n caution to
snakes. We- dared not laugh aloud;
the game was not yet played out. A
nuw edition of the Darwinian theory
wus issued, and a man was quietly
efolred from: a panther. The ski tl
was bundled up, but unfortunately
left right by {the traok; we got home
by another way as fAst as we could.
Aa we calmly strolled into the house,
whistling a few bars of a hymn tune,
with our hands in our pockets and a
look of sublime unconsciousness upon
our faces, we met the old man with
the shotgun. The girls hid got in
first, rowed the whole linos* up with
thc news of a panther, and. we were
compelled to join in the pursuit, Dick
forming a valuable auxiliary with a
Wlnoh-Mter ride. ';.," J
"In-ft Did*, there's that confound-,
ed skin right In the track; they'll be
sure to see It and it will blow the
whole pUnt," I observed.
MNow then, you girls stay behind,
and yreil go in front with tho guns,
wid call you when we're ready," he
answered aloud. ■ , ..■!
So we went ahead and Dick picked
The Panama Canal.
The projector and most active mover
m the Panama Canal has been the indefatigable engineer, M. De. Lesseps.
Iu 1879 ho visited the isthmus and
satislicd himself that tho construe
tion nf a ship canal across il would was
quite practicable. Ho then returned
to France and formed a stock company
to undertake thu work, nud tu this
company the grants of lund mado by
the Colombian government in 1878 for
tho construction of tut inter-oceanic
canal wero, through Ids influence,
transferred. In January, 1881, a number of engineers and surveyors wero
sent from France to the isthmus, and
thu actual work upon the canal wus begun in the following summer. De
Lesseps in hisropurt to the company iu
January estimated the probable total
cost of tho work at 512,000,000 franna,
and tho stock of the company was fixed
at 000,000,000 francs to give an ample
margin for the work. The canal, he
estimated, would be ready fur actual
operation in 1888. The plan of the
canal contemplated a direct cut from
sea to sea, open to the sky throughout
its entire length, with a nominal depth
of 20.52 foet below the sea level and a
width of 72. Hi feet at the bottom of
tho canal, also the excavation of a
grand side basin 3.1 milea long, at
about tho central point of the canal, to
facilitate the passage of ships in either
direction. It was estimated that a
total excavation of 143,880,000 cubic
yards of earth would bo required for
the digging of the canal proper, and
the enlargement of tho ports at either
end sufficiently for tho traffic. Since
1881 the work on the canal has been
teadily pushed, but the great mortality among the whito laborers has been
a serious drawback to the undertaking.
The amount uf excavation necessary
has not been found to much exceed De
LessepB* estimate, but the labor aud
expense of it havo beeu found to be
much greater. Already the work has
begun to lag from shortness of funds,
and in July, 1835, DeLesseps endeavored to secure the guarantee of the
French government for a uew loan ut
500,000,000 franca, but it was refus-id.
The reports uf tho great engineer havo
beeu made annually, and they have
uniformally given an encouraging exhibit of the progress of the work. Until January, 1884, the labor of actual
excavution proceeded but slowly, so
much preparation iu clearing was required. In the first tour months of
1885, moro excavating was done than
in all the time previous. Dredges are
also now being used for tho excavating
and are found to be of much assistance.
Up to May, 1885, about 20,000,000
cubic yards of earth, or about one
seventh of the actual digging needed,'
had been, accomplished. Up to that
date 370,000,000, or 350,000,000
franca had beon expended on thework.
M. DeLosseps still asserts that if the
needed funds can only be furnished
tho canal will bo ready for the passage
of ships in 1883.— Chicago North-Ocean.

London, March 24.—The Queen,
according to thc announced arrangement, wont in state this afternoon to
opon tho ceremony ut laying tliu foundation of the new Examination 11 aU of
the College of Surgeons on the Thames
embankment. She was accompanied
by tlie Prince and Princess of Wales
and other members of the royal family.
The weather was cloar and beautiful,
and the people turned out in vast numbers along the route tuken by her
Majesty. The shops and club buildings on the way were decked with flags
and streamers, and displayed an abundance of loyal mottoes. The royal party
was everywhere received with the
greatest enthusiasm. The people
rushed alongside of the royal carriage
during its progress, greeting her Majesty with rapturous applause. The
Queen, after her return from the corner stone laying, left Buckingham
nt 3-30 o'clock for a drive. She was
nccompanied by Princess Beatrice.
They wont in an opon carriage to Hyde
Park, and every wliero wero cheered by
crowds of people. Among the crowd
which bordered .he Palace Park on the
norlh was a man in shabby clothes and
wearing a slouched hat. lie appeared
to be much agitated, and elbowed liis
way to ihu edgo ot the assemblage.
When tho royal turnout reached a
point opposite him ho threw something
Into tho carriage. Great excitement
followed, and he was quickly taken
into custody and hurried from the
scene. It was subsequently learned
that tho article was not au explosive,
which had been fetired, but only a
piece of paper. When tho Queen
noticed her ussailant's approach she
shrank hack from him into tho ourjage
aud Princess Heatricu leaned forward
apparently for the purpose of shielding
the Queen frum any attack that might
ho made upon her.
Tho prisoner iB believed to be a dm-
chargeu soldier. He is mentally deranged. He went without a struggle
to the police station, where ho was
locked up. He stated that he lived in
King street, and detectives were nt
once detailed to wurk up his hist ry.
The paper which he threw inio ihu
carriage contained nothing more than a
petition for redress for a pur-soiial
grievance under which he bclioycs ho
is Buttering. The petition ih 'written
in a style peculiar' t\> insane people.
Thu man is about 40 years of age, ot
low stature, slender build, sallow com-,
plexion and emaciated and enro-w-tii

Charles Brown, He enlisted in the
army twenty-three years ago and went
to India, whore he was afterward clit*
charged, Fur a long time hu was in
an asylum in India. He was again,
discharged, nnd by order of a cdnrt-
mnrtinl, he whs imprisoned, and on
being released from prison he returned
to England and wni again confined iu
an asylum. The petition is well written
