CORRESPONDENCE.
Maple Bidge Bonds.
Editor Columbia)!.—Somo time
ago there appeared in the Columbian an editorial reflecting severely
on the past councils of Maple Bidge
for their iaaction tuwartls a settlement in the baok part of the municipality, and ou the conduct of
the councils generally; and again in
your last issue a letter appeared from
a person named Johnson, of Fort
Hammond, stating that there are
no roads in the municipality except
a few around Port Hammond, and
insinuating that the government
money haa been squandered, or
worse than squandered. Although
the blusteringof both your informant in the first instance (who is
easily identified here) and Mr. Johnson passes without notice here, yet
if such statements are allowed to go
uncontradicted to the country at
large people are apt to conclude that
the affairs of this municipality are
conducted in a very unsatisfactory
manner. The facte, in the first instance, are these; About three years
ago several persons (your informant,
no doubt, being one of them) who
constituted what was then known
as the Wilson settlement, petitioned
the council to gazette and open up
a road into and through their settlement; and although it was patent
to everyone who knew the country
.that the proposed road could not be
built except at a very great cost,
yet, by the persistent harangues and
intrigues of your informant, the
road was surveyed and gazetted, and
from time to time the oouncil and
government granted and expended
money onituntilthesum so expended
has reached about $1000 (the entire
length of the road is only two miles),
and this in spite of the fact that
every winter the work of the previous season has been torn up and
washed away by the floods of the
LUlooet River. But as soon as your
informant saw that the party who
had so long pandered to his importunity was likely to be ousted, and a
councillor elected who would stop
the useless expenditure of money on
his pet road, and build a road on
hight land which would give the
settlement an outlet to the post-
office, station and steamboat landing in less than half the distance required by his road, he turns and endeavors to blame the council for a
state of things for which he is himself directly responsible. In answer
to Mr. Johnson's charge, I may say
that although thero has been an undue amount of money expended on
roads in the vicinity of Fort Hammond, and no doubt some of it injudiciously, still I think the following facts will show that no such
state of things exists as he would
have the public believe. At the
time the present government came
into power there were in this municipality about 12 miles of road
opened. Of this about 2 miles were
turnpiked, the rest being mere trails
a few feet wide running through the
woods. Atthe present time there
are about 40 miles of road cleared
and graded from 20 to .10 feet wide,
about 15 miles being fairly well
turnpiked. These roads have been
made at a cost of about $12,000 of
government and $6,000 of munici-
' money. All of these miles of
road had to be cut through very
heavy timber, and some of them had
to be made on land subject to overflow which cost in the vicinity of
12,500 per mile for filling, and
some on. very hilly land, having altogether about 2,500 feet of bridging which cost from $2 to $2.50 per
foot. It is true that by reason of
the nature ofthe soil, whioh is mostly a heavy clay, the roads during
the wet season become almost impassable; still the council cannot
gravel roads where there is no
gravel within several miles, and
when there is no money to haul it
from where it is. But who is this
Johnson, and what has he done towards road making in this municipality! Last year he appeared upon
the scene here as a private in the
0. P. R. Go's, shovel brigade (a position which I believe he still holds),
and when nskrrd by the pathmaster
for his statute labor tax replied by
striking that functionary in the face
with a piece of beef and abusing
him with the moat refined language
to be found in tbe railway navvies'
vocabulary, and who is at the present time suing the railway company for said $3.—Yours 4c.

A THURIBLE   RESULT.
Sjward, Neb., Fob. 7.—Miss Etta
Shattttck, llio school teacher who was exposed fur scvonty eight hours during
Ihe recent blizzard, and who loat both
-lower limbs, died here yesterday. Her
back was so badly frozen that, the flesh
dropped off. She suffered intensely
and before her death her share of the
Omaha Bee Relief .Fund amounted to
nearly $4,000. The money will probably be given to her parents.
BOO THIEVES SHOT.
Hambuko, Iowa., Fob.'7.—Two
men named Holt and Rumple, members of a .gang of thieves which have
been stealing nogs iothecountry about
here for >°me time, were shot at an
early hour yesterday morning while
making a raid upon a farmer named
Treason, who emptied both barrels of
a shotgun into Holt, killing him instantly. He then shot Rumple twice
with a revolver, inflicting a fatal
wound.   Treason will not be arrested.
worse revelations eveby bay.
Toronto, Feb. 7. —The Central
Bank investigation to-day revealed the
fact that Allan, the late cashier who
absconded to the United States, owes
the bank forty thousand dollars. Liquidator Campbell testified that Director
McDonald s indebtedness to the bank
at present ia about $113,000 and that
ho is jointly liable with another for
$22,000.
A PREVENTIVE TO SMUOOUNO.
Washington, Feb. 7.—In an interview here this morning Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, said: "lam Informed from various sources that smuggling, especially of opium, has grown
to an alarming extent on the Pacific
slope, I have studied the subject
carefully and believe there is one way
it can be prevented. I would suggest
the reduction of duty of $10 a pound
on opium which was recognized at
being forthe purpose of really prohibiting its introduction into the country,
It has not had that effect and at the
present time there ia more of the vile
stuff smuggled into the I*. S. than
would come in if the duty were, say $3
per pound. The temptation to smugglers would bs gone, yet the duty suggested would keep the prioe up high
enough.
THE SEIZES SEALERS.
Washington, Feb. 7.—Representative Hermann, of Oregon, is desirous
of ascertaining the policy of the state
department towards the vessel ownen
of California and Oregon whoso vessels were seized f r depredations in
Alaskan waters. He yesterday presented a reaolution in the house, calling upon the secretary of state to inform congress just what he haa done
toward asserting the authority and
dominion of the U. S. government over
Behring Sea and Alaskan waters acquired by treaty with Russia, alao
whether any legislation is necessary to
strengthen the govornment, and finally what disposition had been made
of vessels seized last year and by what
authority several had been released
after having been adjudged confiscated
for illegal hshing. The resl object of
the resolution is found in the last
clause. Hermann feels friendly toward the owners of seizod vessels, and
would like to find out what chance
thero is for their release,
THE FAMINE IN TURKEY.
Boston, Feb. 7.—A despatch from
the famine relief committee at Constantinople to the Becretary of the
American board of commissioners of
foreign missions, wns received last
evening. It Btates that tho famine in
central and eastern Turkey is culminating in utter destruction and death.
Over 10,000 square miles of cultivated
land has been entirely doiiistatod and
thousands of poor people arc dying.
Immodiate and Hbeml contributions
are urgently solicited.
A IIAII OITY FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES.
Montkkal, Feb. 7.—Tiro insurance
companies lost $1,500,000 by lires in
this city last year which is two or three
tunes as much as they received from
premiums, and with commercial corporation tax, it will be impossible for
them to bnlanco the profit and loss
account without increasing ratos. One
oompany iB already dosing up its business in iIub province nnd it ia not unlikely one or two more will follow its
ex-implo.

New Yorx, Feb. 7.—Richard K.
Fox was arrested this morning by Inspector Williams, charged with viola-
tiuir tire penal code in encouraging
prize-fighting.
niHMARUK's   SPEECH.
London, Feb. 7.—Bismarck's speech
has, for the time-being, tranquilizod
Europe. The Russian press on the
wholo approve and leading journals of
the principal cities of Europe regard
the aspect of affairs as more pacific.
At the oourt ball in the Winter palace at
St. Petersburg, last evening, the czarina
again did the honor of inviting tho German and Austrian ambassadors to seats
on her immediate right and left at
supper. Here in London it is believed
the speech will clear the atmosphere,
but it leaves behind a sense of unonsi-
irons because it so freely admits that
Russia intends to tako active measures
to settle Bulgarian affairs in accordance
with Russian desires, and that Germany is not likely tn interfore because
tho matter is of secondary moment to
her.
LACE OF UNITY   AND HARMONY.
London, Feb. 7.—A corresponded
of the "Kmes, writing from St. Peters*
burg, says the rcrji on Austria withheld
its consent so long to the publication
of a treaty of alliance Waa because she
did not wish it to appear thst then
was a lack of unity between Germany
and herself on Bulgarian sffiurs.
While the question is of primary importance to Austria, Germany will not
take the same interest, hence the went
of harmony which Austria wished to
conceal.
THE COAL FAMINE IN FRISCO.
San Franoisco, Feb. 7.—Early thu
morning lire destroyed Spreckle's old
sugar refinery on Bryant and Ninth ats.
Loss $8,000.
The coal famine is increasing and
prices are still going up. The cost of
this commodity bss forced the' Yosemite flouring mills to close and
other pieces where large quantities of
coal are daily consumed will alto have
to shut down unless they can stand
the expense or get aome other fuel.
Three weeks ago the Delmonte flour
mill was forced to close for several
days as it could not get the kind of
coal it was accustomed to use at any
price, but it has bargained for enough
since then to keep on running. Tne
breweries are using wood. Two yean
agp there were 50,000 tons of coat
stored in the bins on the Oregon Improvement Go's dock, yesterday all th*
vast space there was very nearly
empty.

Our friend of the Vancouver Her-
tild declares that commercial union
and annexation arc so closely allied
that there is practically nothing between them. It is n pity that a
largo number of prominent and patriotic Canadians who have committed themselves to tho scheme, and
who have beoome advocates of it,
had'not oujoyetl tho advantage of
being readers of our salt water contemporary. We are quite sure most
of them are just as loyal as our contemporary. They hnvo declared
many times that while advocating
commercial union they arc strictly
opposed to annexation. We aro not
sure, cither, that the people of Great
Britain would offer as much opposition to commercial union as our contemporary imagines. It has been
intimated that the increased prosperity which such a readjustment of
commercial relations would bring to
Canada must greatly increase the
value of British investments here,
and correspondingly iucroase tho
dividends. This would necessarily
imply a revival of trade, and n very
rapid development of the country;
and Great Britain would share to a
considerable extent in the benefits of
this revival. Our salt water cotemporary declares that the Globe and
Mail nre not trustworthy exponents
of public sentiment, and that if we
depend upon them for political information we are going " to got loft so
fnr ns the sentiment of the country
is concerned." Then, where are wc
to look for an expression of public
sentiment if not in tho two most in-
llucntial uud widely-read newspapers
in the country ? Are we to take
our friend of tho Herald ns the only
reliable exponent of publio opinion;
or, if not, will ho be good enough to
show us some better authority limn
we have named) In'politics we
know the Globe sees only through
colored glasses; but is tho Herald
absolutely free from bins 1 The Mail
we regard as a singularly independent and able newspaper, standing
in the-very front rank of Canadian
journalism, and we have a pro-
found regard for its opinions. If our
salt water contemporary refuses to
get his impressions of public opinion
from such sources, we are afraid his
impressions are, perhaps, not well
founded.
as will enable it to get all it wants.
By pursuing such u policy it would
both act wisely for its own interests
and become, what it was intended
to bo, a great national colonization
enterprise.

A telegram which appeared in
this paper yesterday afternoon
points strongly to the probability of
an agreement between the Canadian
Pacific and Northern Pacific in consideration of which the bitter road
will cease to compete for the trade
of the Canadian Northwest. This is
what many people thought would
come sooner' or later. It was for the
purpose of securing connection with
the Northern Pacific road that the
people of Manitoba were so anxious
to construct a railway from Winnipeg to the boundary, aud it
was from the Northern that the
people all along the southern border
of Manitoba and the Northwest
have been looking for such competition as might relieve them from
railway monopoly. If the agreement referred to actually takes
place, it will undoubtedly be a misfortune for that country. It is a
matter of dispute whether the C. P.
R. rates between eastern Canada
and the west are higher than they
ought fairly to be under the circumstances. The people say they arc,
but the railway company say they
aro not. But even if the contention
of the railway company is woll
founded, the fact that outside competition is shut out will produce discontent and hinder the development
of the country. It is an old saying
that competition makes trade.
People who are denied nil competition and forced to do business with
a single concern will cliny to the
opinion that they would be a great
deal better served if there wns competition. And the American roads
never fall to make uso of such circumstances; even lo the extent of
misrepresenting facts, for the purpose of turning immigrants away
from Canadian territory and inducing them to settle on the railway
lands south of the boundary. It is
pretty* well established that bun-
reds of intending settlers have been
turned away from Manitoba by the
diligent use of the monopoly clause
of the 0. P. K charter. It has always seemed to us that the development of the country lying west of
Lake Superior- was of more importance to the C. P. P.., and immensely more important to Canada, tlinn
the preservation of absolute monopoly. That country has wonderful resources and is capable of sustaining
a greater population than now exists
in the wholo Dominion. If the extensive plains were once settled up,
there would necessarily be an immense increase in railway traffic
an increase thot would give the O.P.
R. and two or three other railways
all the business they would care to
handle. The Canadian road, by
reason of the heavy government
subsidies it has received, and the
shortness of its line, will always be
able to carry Manitoba's produce to
the east at lower «*» than any of
its present or prospective competitors. It h«sd,' therefore, have no
fear of competition if its rates are
what the/rpught to be; and its true
policy will Ht first to increaso the
traffic and then to fix woh a tariff

A flue show ol brnvorj- sometimes does
aa effectual service as the courage which

at its back.-  A brave blast of trumpets
will often cause a citadel to capitulate,
even in these modern days.
An American traveller, while return-
V; ins home at nightfall through one of tho
'; suburbs of 1'ana, suddenly encountered
"• savage-looking fellow who, stepping up
to him, demanded his money.
The American replied by clapping a
pistol to his assailant s hrad and then, as
■ the man reeoi.ed, seizing him by the
I ,hroat and shouting for help. A police-
' man happening to be within he ring,
i the thief was secured, nnd brought up
r? lor examination the next morning.
Scarcely had lie been sentenced whon
l the magistrate lurned sharply upon the
' American, asking, "Monsieur, have you
; a license to oarrv firearms?"
"No, I haven't."
"Tlren 1 must fine you for having that
' pistol tn your possession."
K   "Hut is there any fine for carrying a
, pistol which cannot be fired?"
J!   "No."
I    "Well, then, I'm all right, for my pistol
' ,has no lock, anil I intended that day to
take it to a gunsmith for repair."
','    Here the thief broke out with a cry of
; fury and despair, at having been so easily
deceived, and he pro! ably always remembered the otcu on as one on which
his native wit had deserted him.
Puiictllloua.
A gentleman in a suburban town went
to call upon a lady whoso family occupied
one-half of * double house.   The front
A doors ol the two parts opened upon the
.'same stoop.   At one of the doors the
"gentleman nulled the bell.   The door
K waa opened by a servant, who answered
' tlie inquiry for Mrs. S—by directing
' the caller to the other door
>    The visiter then turned to the bell-pull
on the adjacent! door-post, and In a few
, moments that door was opened by tho
i same servant, who solemnly replied to
$ the Becond inquiry regiudinLMrs. s—
by saying that the !a<ly was .not at home.
This incident is mulched hy another
that took place in Vienna—rather more
than matched, in fact, lor the person w lio
played two parts in tlie comedy hnd a
special ir.oou and temper for each part.
"My friend was .In Vienna," savs a
traveller.   "He had taken from here a
letter ol credit on one of the best-known
banks, and he wanted to draw on it fo
he sought the agency of the bank in
Vienna. He walked into an office which
hail a bit barricade in front of a long
'.desk and two small holes cut for tha
convenience of customers,   tie walked
un to the lirst of them, A man came up.
Ho handed the letter of credit to him.
The man looked at it and said, very
gruffly, 'Next window.'
"My friend wont to the next window,
a man came up, took his letter of credit,
'ooked at it, smiled pleasantly, and said,
That's all right. How much do you
wish to drew, sir?'
"It was the tame man."

The Growth of Gossip.
It takes a long conscientious life to
build up a reputation, which may yet be
injured- for«time by a breath of gossip.
Kor example, something like thii may
.easily happen. Mrs, A says, in all Innocence, to Mrs. II,— -"
"That Mra. Newcomer law (ond other
children. The othor day when I called,
she waa blowing soap bubbles with them
through a common clay pipe."
Mrs. K, in her next conversation with
Mrs. U, totalis the story, slightly altered.
"That Mrs: Newcomer ia so odd. Mra.
A saw her amusing the children with a
con.mon clay pipe."
Mrs. Oto Mia. D,-
"That Mra. Newcomer uses a common
clay pipe."
Mrs. 1) to Mra. E,-
>  "That Mra. Newcomer smokes (horrid
'old pipe.  I don't Na how any woman
in her sober senses could do thnt."
Mra. E to Mrs. F,-
"That Mra. Newcomer smokes a pipe
and drinks dreadfully."
, foetal convmallonf are often like tho
came ol ".Scandal." An Innocent statement becomes eo distorted, alter many
Repetitions, that it would never be
recognined at the source Irom which it
jtarted.:     ..

diseases peculiar to tho throat and

Cherry Pectoral, promptly admlnls*
tend, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our eliildren were
afflicted, we used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Peotoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which have
come to our know ledge.—Mary Park-
hurst.. Preceptress, Home for Littlo
Wanderers, Doncas ter, Md.
My children have been peculiarly sub-
{sct to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
Ind any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint.—David G. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I havo used Ayor's Cherry Pectoral
In my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable In
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to thu lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.

Immigration Prospects
Mr. W. L. Fagan, who i3 ngent in

steadily increasing. During the past

out, nnd numerous enquiries are Bfeing
mado daily as Lu rates of passage from
Liverpool, Glasgow and Londonderry.
The majority of immigrants buy tickets
per Allan Line to (Quebec or Halifax

cheapest route. The fare from Halifax
to Westminstor is S43.0Q, aud from
Quel)eo 041.50, and steerage rates
across the Atlantic are from 820 to
$21, according to the port embarked
at. A short timo ago a family, now

Tho seas on of the provincial legislature yesterday aftPi*no-*n wns brief and
UEimportant1: The adoption nf an address to tliu Ikutonant-guvernor in reply to the Bpeeeh from ihe throne was
moved by Mr. Duck and seconded by
Mr. Martin, and tbe debate was limited to the mover and seconder, As a
rule overy member of the house conceives it his duty to speak to this motion; but the leader ot the opposition
waa absent yesterday, and the opposition made no demonstration. The annual reports of the Superintendent of
Education and the regtdtrar of biiths,
marriage*] nnd denths, and tho pulilic
accounts, were presented. Mr. Me-
Leese asked why Mr. Charles Vvllson
had Iv rn sent to Nanaimo ou behalf of
the government after the explosion,
but the minister of mines refused to
answer until two days notice had been
given. House adjourned until .his
nfternoon. The house opened at 2
o'clock this afternoon. Several petitions were presented and nearly an
hour wns occupied in a discus-tion of
proceedurc. Semlin, acting leader ofthe
opposition, resumed the debate on llio
address and was followed by McLcese
and Humphreys. Tho latter is still
on his feet ami is treating the house

lloodman mind.
A well lillvd house greeted the Lev-
iek Company last night, on thoir first
appearand!) in' this city. The well-
known and popular English melo drama
"Hoodman Blind" was the subject of
of the evening's entertainment. The
play is a very prutty one and embraces
almost every linn of acting from tho
sublime to tho ridiculous nnd tragedy
to comedy. Mr. Lev iek as Jack Yeulet carried hia part out very successfully and his acting was extremely
.pleasing. Mies Alsborg, who played
the double rok of Jack's wife ana Jess,
held the sympathy of the audience
through all the varied turnings and
windings of the play. Tho oilier characters were ns a rule thoroughly conversant with their parts and acted
them with much spirit and ability.
On tho whole tho company scored a
great success and moro than realized
tho expectations uf t hose who attended.
The "Whjte SInvo," the piny to be
prosented this evening, isa pictlircque
drains uf life in tlio .South, and is from
the pen of the great playwright, Bartley Campboll. Mr. Lev iek impersonates his original chnrncter of Clay
Brit'on, a Kenluckinn, in which ho
made a great hit when it was first
given at tlio 14th st. thentro, New
York City. Thy drama is full of striking siltntints, a bcntttiful story, ntitl
abumds with comedy and pathos.
Numerous negro melodies are inter*
spewed during the piny.
Worms derange the whole system.

His w'orship opened the meeting
with a very sensible and neceflsary
speech to tho councillors. Ho called
their attention to the city finances and

on an economical basis. He hoped
the greatest care would bB used in

that all should work for the general
good.

Nanalmo Miners Rfinmc Work.
Nanaimo. Feb. 6.—One result of the
miners' meeting was that in future all
drill holes will bo examined by competent men before being charged, to
determine whether the shot will do the
work calculated. The miners raised
the question of the discharge of the
Chinese, and to-day tho owners of tho
Nanaimo and Wellington collieries
agreed to discharge all Chinese and
work as best they can. This was received by the miners at a meeting in
Nanaimo to day, and all decided to go to
work at once, except at Chandler's colliery, management of which demurred
on account of the dillicult working in
their mine. Dunsmuir & Sons before
promised to discharge the Chinese if
tho miners would also do away with
Chinese help, but this hus beeu refused up to the present. Tho collieries will therefore begin to turn out
coal again to-morrow.
From Chllliwhack.
(Correspondence of Uie Columbian.)
Chilliwhack, Fob. 4.—Tho quarterly installation of oflioers of Peerless
Lodge, No. 11, 1. A. (i. G.x took
place at Henderson's hall last evening.
The following are electod for the ensuing quarter: Henry Ashwell, C. T.;
Nellie Evans*, V, T.; Mnry McKeever,
R. H. S.; Jennie Hooper, L. H. S.;
E. J. Campbell, sec; Gertie Kipp, A.
S.; E, Hopkins, F. S,; Mrs. C. Chadsey, treasurer; Rev. T.W. Hall, chap.;
Louis L. Chadsey, mnrshnll; Nellie
Kipp, D. M.J Ella Chadsoy, I, G.; J.
H. Williams, sentinel; J.T. Wilkinson,
P. C. T. During the past quarter
there have beon thirty initiations, the
largest number in any one quarter
since the organization of tho lodge.
On the evening of the 30th inst ono
of those events so interesting to the
ladies took place at tho Presbyterian
manse, Centreville, viz., the marriage
of Mr. Josoph Menzies, of Chilliwhack,
and Miss Minnie E. Kipp, eldest
daughter uf Henry Kipp, Esq., of the
same place. The ceremony was performed by Rev. G.C. Patterson, M. A.
Mr. Menzies is to be congratulated on
being the happy possessor of such a
charming wifo. During the night a
number of young men went to the residence of the bride's father, where the
young couple were staying, for the
purpose of saluting them. Tho place
was ail dark, nnd tho visitors mado
known their presence with such robust
enthusiasm that nearly all the cattle
and horses on- the farm became so
frightened that they left for more
peaceable quart era. Since then some
have been found, but I understand
three horses are yet missing, Tho
noise was as b id half an hour after it
started as at first, so the party were
invited iu and treated lo au excellent
oyster supper, and. after spending a
most enjoyable hour nud doing ample
justico to tho good things provided,
the sereuader-j separated with threo
rousing cheers for the happy couple.
On Tuesday evening of last week the
I._0. O. F., (diBhing to give expression
to their appreciation of the services
rendered by Rev. G. C. Patterson, M.
A. at their memorial service, assembled
with their wives aud daughters at the
manso, Cent:eville, uf which they took
possession, to tho complete surprise of
Mr. and Mrs. Patterson, The ladies
prepared an excellent sproad, ond, as
tho tables were surrounded, Mr. Me-
Cutcheon, N. O., in behalf of tho
order, presented Mr. Patterson with
an excellent address and a well-filled
purse, Mr. Patterson responded in
suitable terms, giving expression to
his pleasure in knowing that, his effort
was appreciated, and wishing the order
continued and enlarged success in thoir
efforts for good. A very plensant
evening wns spent.
Conrt of Appeal.
Before Hon. Mr, Justice McCrelgliL
Ro Curran.—His Lordship this
morning said he was inclined to hold
that tho notice of appeal given might
be rend as sufficient on bohalf of Devlin. Mr. McColl then took the objection that tho appeal should have
beeu by case stated ax the dechiou by
the Justico of the Peaco wns not a conviction or order within the meaning i f
the act of last se-sion, but a refusal to
convict. After much discussion and
reference to authorities his lordship
Rusiuined tbe objection and dismissed
the appeal with costs ng.iiust the appellant. Mr. Atkinson at ones gave
notice that he would proceed by case
stated.
