Saturday I>filing. January Si, I88J.
Our eastern exchanges come to us
with elaborate and somewhat sensational announcements respecting an
action said to have been entered by
the late Sprbule's brother to recover
$100,000 for false hanging, it wus
hoped that the last of the Sproule
caseMmd been heard, but if this
brother really proposes to go on
with his, suit, no one oan tell when
the end will lie. Sproule was convicted on circumstantial evidence,
but those who heard the whole case
declare that the evidence wus too
strong and complete to leave room
for any reasonable doubt. Moreover, Sproule, according to the
American; papers, had a wry bad
reputation apart from this case, and
if his brother proposes to rescue the
dead man's memory from infamy he
has undertaken a large task.
T. J. Trapp, who is standing for
the commons in New Westminster
distriefys » Grit in disguise. He
say8,V^I am and always slinll be
thoroughly independent." That is
what they all say. Mr. Trapp will
. stay at home for the next live years.
At the god of that time ho will
probably pluck up enough cotiragc
to -te|l tlie. electors to which party
he belongs. At present he is afraid
to ,*»?•—Vic. Colonist. By what
process of mental gymnastics does
our very much Tory friend reach
the conclusion that Mr. Trapp is a
Grit in disguise because he declares
himself to be "thoroughly independent!" We ure afraid our cotemporary who, by the way, was on the
Grit side himself during the administration of Mr. Mackenzie, knows
very little of independence.
A New Rival.
Arrangements are now said to be
completed for the establishment of
a new through railway line between
the Atlantic and Paoific. It is
well' known to our readers that the
Grand Trunk Railway of Canada is
really the only competitor of the
Canadian Pacific in the Dominion.
Almost without exception the other
Canadian railways, have beenswal-
low.il"up by one", rut-other of these
great roads. It lias several times
been rumored that an amalgamation
.was about to take place between
the G. T. H. and 0. P. B., but these
rumors, fortunately, have not been
correct*'!* wduld' be a great misfortune if all Canadian roads should
come under one management. The
new transcontinental road is to be
madf Mflbfe^fj} Jorthern r\scilic
IUil1vafo4nd*llf.Gtnrf'Irtink.5 At
present the Northern Pacific is in
operation from Tacoma and Portland (Or.) to Duluth, at the head of
Lake Superior, und along tho south
shore of the lake as far as Ashland.
Front t Ashland to Sault Ste. Marie
the Duluth, South Shore is Atlantic, an independent line, is being
built, and is to bo ready for operation about next Jutie. The Grand
Trunk hais a line of its own finished
and in operation froni Portland,
Maine, via Montreal to Toronto,
and it likewise controls the Midland
. Railway from Port Hope (Lake
Ontario) to Midland (Georgian Bay).
It is proposed to build a branch bf
the Midland from a point near Orillia to Sault Ste. Marie, crossing
French River near its entrance into
the Georgian Bay, and keeping
near the shore of the bay tothe
straits. The straits of Ste. Marie
will be bridged, and there connection will he mado with the Duluth,
South Shore ils Atlantic. This will
give a) i very straight lino of railway
from Portland on the Pacific to
Portland on the Atlantic, which is
the eastern terminus of the Grand
Trunk Railway. The Grand Trunk
now holds a charter for the extension, te Sault Ste. Marie, and the
charter for a bridge across
the strait lis, nlso held by the
two railways' interested in the
proposed system. If this project is carried out (and there seems
to be no considerable obstacle standing in the way of its accomplishment) it wil). make the Grand Trunk
and Northern Pacific important
competitors with the 0. P. R. for
the transcontinental trade. Of
course the C. P. R. has many ad-
vaaAagea., ;in the shortness of its
roaoVM -comparative smallness of
its debt, and its independent connections, no road can approach it.
But the new rival route will be not
much longer between the two oceans,
and for many years it will have the
neat advantage a very much larger
focal traffic than itt Canadian competitor. At soon as the mountain
section of the Northern Pacific has
been finished to Taooma, the road
will be Blade considerably shorter.
Thoist cities situated on the coast
of British Columbia, and on Fraser
Rirer, will derive a great ad van-
tageinaimuohat they are near enough
the weetern terminus of the Northern PiatiaWt* hiring them within the
influence of itt competition. They
will be able to secure better terms
than ever on' Importations from eastern Canada, because the facilities
for bringing tuch importations over
the Northerh Paoific will be greatly
increased. It may be remarked,
also, that the C. P. R. Co. contemplates the erection of a railway
bridge at Sault Ste. Marie, and the
extension of its line from .Algoma
Mills westward to St. Paul and Minneapolis, for the trade of which it is
how competing. 11 is likewise very
probable that ono or more of the
American or American-Canadian
lines will endeavor this year to extend northward from St. Paul and
Chicago so us to take some of the
Manitoba trade. If the Dominion
government continues to insist upon
vetoing all i nilway bills by whioh it
is proposed to disturb the 0. P. R.
monopoly in tho Northwest, of
course this cannot be dono. But
the spirit of the people of Manitoba
and the Northwest is such that we
are inclined to believe the voto
in this direction will be exercised
with much greater caution than has
been observed heretofore.

GENTI.EMI5N.~In offiiilng myself to
tho District of Westminster to represent
you In the Commons (his coming opening of the House, I do so In nll sincerity,
believing thut I enn do more for your interests thnn nuy of tho gentlemen that
havo come forward so fur. I nm n thorough
Conservative nnd In cntlro sympathy
with tho presont govornmont, who hnve
firovod themselves the friend in need nnd
n deed to Uritish Coiumbin,
Gentlomen, I hnvo my private footings
and opinions on most of tbo questions of
tho dny, but If I go to tho House hy your
sanction to represent you. I shall submit
to your commands und directions whioh
you enn send me as tho different questions
of tho day present themselves and nsclr-
on tho spot, to be represented; for I hold
that in going to parliament by your vote
nnd pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord nnd master, as somo
hnve thought ami acted accordingly when
out of your reach.
Temperance, gentlomen, ts ono of tbe
questions thnt troublo the distriot at tho
present time. Now, gentlemen, when tbe
right timo arrives for us lo receive prohibition none will bo found to work for that
measure with more sincerity or energy
thnn I, nnd no government on earth wni
be moro hnppy to grant thnt measure than
they; but tno time hns not nrrived yot, I
am sorry to say, und I sny further, that
the timo for prohibition entirely rests
with the temperance people themselves,
for as soon ns they provo thoir sincerity In
tbe cause by petitioning narliamontto put
a tax on ten, coffee and other articles, and
on Income if noccssnry, thereby providing
revenue to carry on the governmont, then
and then only oan they succeed In their
causo, thon ami1 thon only oan the government ctin.pl>'wllh tholH wishes. Money
Is the root of nil evil, so parsons tell us,
and money is the mighty lover that is go*
lug to lift you Into that haven of temperance you atl so desire and dream of,
Gentlemen, I fully realize tho Importance of your selecting a good and proper
mnn to represent you ut Ottawa, antl I also
fully realize tho fuel that I nt so grent distance nm working to a grent disadvant
age; but, gentlemen, I trust to your Intelligence nnd to tho friendship of my old
friends, and feel satisfied you will do Jus
tice to yourselves who are to bo benefitted
or Injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to servo you sincerely and faithfully In
all things If sent, to the.Commons tore-
present you there, und If you do not I oan
stop ut homo, help you when I oan, and
sincerely wish you muy be us well served
ns 1 would liko to servo you myself.
Gentlemen, yon enn give me my answer
nt th* pol M, nnd whether I go oi stay I
shnll always remain
Yours truly nnd sincerely,

Afraid or the O. P. R,—The senate at Washington, on the Mth inst.,

it particularly obnoxious tu the railways, wss a provision that the railways should haul freight fnr short distances at proportionately tha same rate
as they charged for long hauls. The
railways bitterly opposed this, particularly the oompaniea of the northern
atatea, which argued that its effeot
wonld be lo make thoir through rates
so oppressive that the Canadian Pacifio would be able to eut under their

The House.—Noxt Monday the

Viotoria. Not being in the confidence of the governmont we are unable to give any indication of what

It has become a custom to moke the
official speech nothing more than a
formal opening of the house, and uno
may search in vain therein for the
session's programme. In this provinoe, too, the opening speeches are
sometimes unnecessarily long—more
long than brood. If it is not too long
our readers may expect to see it in
Monday's Columbian if it is worth the
cost of telegraphing, but probably it
will not appear before Tuesday. It is
matter of much regret that severe illness is likely to prevent tlie premier,
Hon. Wm. Smithe, from taking part
in the opening ceremonies.
Very Thin.—Ever since the expulsion of the Chinese laborers from
Vancouver, the newtpapers of that
place have been endeavoring to make
it appear that there was no compulsion, and that the Ohinese went away
willingly and peaceably. If you were
to place the muzzle of a loaded shotgun at the ear of a man and advise
him to leave, it is altogether probable
hs would leave "peaceably," but tho
shotgun could hardly be looked upon
as an instrument of persuasion in tho
ordinary sense. This is pretty much
how it waa with the Chinese at Vancouver. They wero told to go, and
were notified that if they refused lo
go without violenoe they would have
to go anyway. Under theae circumstances fhey went, and were even
glad to go, for they felt that to remain in the face of a hostile crowd
and hostile demonstrations might be
putting both property and life in imminent danger. Artemus Ward tells
us thst onee ,'he found himself iveary
and hungry travelling through a lonely region with his show. Through tho
darkness he finally spied the flicker of
a tallow candle in the distance, and
the sight wonderfully revived his hope
and ambition. His jaded team, however, was not inspired liy thi glimmer
uf the distant light, and he save he

Codville's Ucplj to Voter.
Kditor Columbian.—Will yon kindly
permit mc to answer a letter tbat came
out in your issue of 5th January from
some person wlio feels braver behind tile
signature of "Voter" than lie wonld feel
before his own. Now in reply I intend
to bo brief, as I am not acquainted with
the gentleman and never will be if he
does not use his own name and come out
like a man and aay whut he has to aay
like a man. Now, as to bis thinking the
whole thing a joke, I cannot help what
he thinks, All I can any on tbat head
ia, that to ine, the joke coines iu where I
am acouaed of uot appreciating parsons
aud their good work. Now, Mr. Ed.tor,
allow me to assur. you thut there are
few who respect or realize more than I
do, the persona and their good work,
ofteu performed under great difficulties,
aud with the aid of stumbling-blocks
who are ever in the road and full of advice, going around picking out motes
where beams are sticking all around
them. For parsons are educated mea as
a rale, and gentlemen command reapect
wherever they go, and when you find
one tbat is not "a rarity indeed," I am
content to leave hiin to the tender mercies of his congregation. As to mybeing
a credit or discredit, that's for the voters
to decide, and not Voter from Galway
who seems to bo going around asking
some one to tread oil the tail of hia coat.
No, Mr. Voter, I am on the. peaco ticket
and would rather take you by tbe hand
any day and be a friond if you will let
me, than to fight ubout a chance to do
you a aervice.
ln conclusion, I muat remind dear
Voter or voters that I am a long way off
and cannot reply to anyone or everyone
in leas than two or threo weeks'time,
but 1 am willing to answer all I oan if
they will como to mo in daylight. But
no sticking in the dark gentlemen, that
will not be allowed. And in conclusion
I will juat Buy to Voter, use your vote
honestly and to your own entire satisfaction, and wheu I return to B.C. I will lie
juat as happy to shake hands with you
or any of you whether you vote for me
or not. And now, for the benefit of all
friends, indifferent friends, or enemies,
if I have any, for who has not, I will,
with all due reapect, refer you to the lost
two paragraphs in iny address to the
Olve me an open, manly, foe,
That I may meot liim and perhaps avert
the blow.
Bnt of all the ctiri.es an angry Heaven cun

From the Montreal Star.
Tliere is every likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the late Mr. J, S. McLachlan. One
company, the Sun Life, has paid its
policies, but it is stated tlio others resist payment. It may be that the
matter will be amicably settled, but
such is not the presont appearance.
There was, aa hoa been stated, a total
of (42,130.70 insurance on his life,
placod aa follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life (7000, with a bonus of 9130.-
70, and an accident policy in the same,
company for (10,000, making a total
of (17,130.70. Of the accident policy
for (10,000, (6000 of it was reinsured
with tho Citizens' insurance Company.
The Sun Life lias paid the (17,130.70
to the hoirs. Tho Citizens refuse to
pay the Sun Lifo, and the latter company will enter suit The Sun Life
on paying tho claim to tho McLachlan
hoirs, tuok from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 0 per cent, interest
compounded yearly shuuld Mr. J. 8.
MnLachliiu ever turn up alive. The
other insurances were (11,000 in London and Luncashiro Lifo Co., (2000 in
the Aitm, Lifo, (2000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund and a partnership polioy
for (10,000 in tho Accident Company
of Nortii America. Thero was a personal accident policy in the latter com-
Kuny, nnd when J. S. MoLachlan left
[outreal some time ago, the unearned
portion of the premium was returned
and the polioy cancelled. The partnership policy for (10,000 is contested by
the North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner at the time of
his death. The partnership policy
was on the lives of the Messrs, Mc-
Lachlans, Mr. Radford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the policy was
payablo to tlio survivors. When Mr.
Bivjihn retired /ram the btishuss hit
name,cas removed from the policy and
another pnt in his place bytheeompany,
who never wu and is not now n partner.
Whilo the Sun Lifo has paid its policies, the others havo expressed the desire to receive more satisfactory proofs
of death than have been furnished
tliem, The Citizens' Insurance Company claims, first, that they were not
notified nf a desire fur renewal, and
second, thnt the premium for the second year, which began in August last,
has not yet been paid. The policy of
the Mtnn calls for tho production of
the body. Mr. W. McLachlan has
written a letter to Mr. Mocaulay, of
tho Sun Lifo, certifying to the honorable and liberal manner in which that
company has acted with regard to the
claim. (J. O. MoLcod, is agent for

1 he annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian inatitutlon will be found
In another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums whieh
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanka to the resolute
manner in which the Company hae declined to embark upon oxtravagant
methods of procuring business, tbo working expenses of the company bear to the
total income tbe very small ratio of between 17 aud 18 per cent. A point attesting the sonndnesa of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay tho death
claims--which in a company of the age of
tho Confederation Life la something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
Bet forth In minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
posaible contingenclea aud providing for
every debt, there ia a surplus of (282,109
over liabilities and capital, combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was §200,300. So much for what can be
done liy rigid adherence to rrhat the
President defined aa the true policy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep Ita balance

White Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronze fa a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
apeeiol purposes in thia country. It has
heen. found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for aome time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinda
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronzo being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, It is stated

man who, under tho name of Thomas
Watson, was sentenced on Saturday to
aix years imprisonment for stealing a
ton-cent purse from a woman. Suspicion waa first aroused as to thu truth
of the statements in the letter from
the fact that the letter was dated only
two weeks back, and that no mention
was made na to the vessel he had been
shanghaied nhonrd. This led to an examination of the envelope, and it was
found to havo tho' San Franoisco post
mark. Detectives then took tho caso
in hand, with the above result. Harvey had written the letter to his wife
in the hope of keeping her in ignorance of his disgrace. When she was
informed of tne truo state of affairs
she wu very much, affected and shed
tears copiously.
New York, Jan. 21.- -Tho United
Labor county convention, at their

imposture and a violation of liberty
and fundamental laws; that Pinker-
ton's men are going from state, to
state, committing murders, for which
none of tliem ure ever brought to
trial; calling upon Gov. Hill to stamp
out the blood-stained gang of murderous tramps who have dared to establish their headquarters in the metropolis of American civilization; demanding that the legislature forbid by law
the employment as speoial officers of
nien not citizens of this stato and whb
have not roaided three years in the
county where they are employed, nnd
all such special officers to be paid by
the state; forbidding, under penalty,
the fine und imprisonment of special
officers recoiving any salary or reward
from individuals or corporations, and,
finally, calling upon congress to investigate the coil pools and the employment of armed forces controlled by
private detective agencies.

London, Jan. 21.—Mr. Tender,
addressing a meeting of tho shareholders of tho Direct Cable Co, yesterday* said that tho CoinniercialCsble
Co. had carried away £170,000 worth
of traffic, and that while this traffic
did not benefit the Commercial Co,,
the loss of it would seriously injure
the pool companies. He thought Mr.
Mackay was too good a business man
to carry on a fight so disastrous, and
as for himself, he thought it useless to
increase the sixpenny rate till tho
company had readied n point paying a
fair dividend and maintaining a reserve fond. If thu French company
withdrew from the pool it ought in
honor tu return the £250,000 it received in excess of iti earnings.
