tli* fight over the Queen1! county,
N. B., ilectiont case goea on, The
Conservatives ara determined to perpetrate a piece of injustice upon
the people of that eounty at any
coat. Mr. King,1 the elected Liberal,
demanded a recount of Judge Stead-
man. The Conservative! applied
for and secured from Judge Tuck,
of the supreme court, an order prohibiting the county court judge from
proceeding to a lei-punt. Judge
Steadman, after consideration, --avoided that in this matter he.ll not
preme court aiSdeterminra to proceed. The Conservatives then se
cured an order restraining the returning officer from delivering the
ballots to Judge Steadman,-—Jfon-
trtcd Witness.
The anti-Chinese feeling, iu British Oolumbia, haa borne its legitimate fruit, in the form of an outrage
on Chinaman who had gone to Vancouver to work. The victims were
maltreated, but few, if any, of them
seriously injured. The legislature
acted with promptitude and in a way
to preserve the honor of tbe province; Promptly, in a single day, it
impended the city charter, vetted
authority over the place in the government and got the bill sanctioned.
With the tame alacrity a special
force wai sworn in; and, armed with
batons and revolvers, sent off to
Vancouver. Ringleaders among
those who took part in the outrage
were arrested. British Columbia
does not love Ohinese, but the does
not intend that lawless men shall
subject them to outrage with impunity. In the line of action taken,
the authorities of the province have
the sympathy of the whole Dominion.—Monetary Times.
The British Columbia legislature
has passed a couple of bills provid
ing for the incorporation of companies to construct railroads to the
United States boundary. It will be
interesting to note their fate. That
the Dominion government will permit them to go-thnMigh without disallowance is scarcely probable, and
yet if the Manitoba: members and
those from the Pacifio province
were to unite forces, they could compel compliance with their demands.
Britiih Columbia hai unquestionably the same righto in thit matter
as hu Manitoba, and yet the position of the two province! is not
quite identical. Manitoba had an
independent connection to the south
before the Canadian Pacifio Company
entered the field, while with British
Oolumbia it was practically 0. P. R.
or nothing. Oompetion at Winni
peg would be leu serious than at the
Pacific coast, for in the one case a
haul of one-half the entire length
of the main line would have been
secured, in the other none at all.
These, however, are but sentimental
consideration!. British Oolumbia
has the right to competition, and
may secure it ii ihe goes about it
with determination to tucceed, and
ii not led aside by every red herring
that may be trailed across the traok.
—Winnipeg Sun.
A Nova Scotia correspondent of
tha Week (independent) gives a most
discouraging report of the way in
whioh the campaign was conducted
in that province. If the report is
half true, it discloses a state of
things mott discreditable to one
party at least, and we do not know
whether the other party wat any
better. 'Ba correspondent says.
"One remark more on the Nova
Scotia election!. It is likely that
all over the Dominion the glory of
the government victory in this pro
vince will be bestowed noon Sir
Charlie Tupper. It will be aaid,
■Tupper did it' Nothing could be
more inaccurate. His coining had
no appreciable effeot on a single'
constituency in the provinoe. If
he had remained comfortably in
London to thia hour tho result in
every constituency, except Cumberland, would have been exactly as
it is. Another point to be considered ia that money was used enormously in Nova Scotia on the government side, and that thit, and not
the beauties of the national policy,
nor tho heroics of Sir Charles Tupper, carried the majority of the seats
in Nova Scotia. No doubt Sir John
Macdonald and bit colleagues realised fully the importance of putting
an end to the secession movement
in Nova Scotia, lt hat been unquestionably a source of great annoyance to them. Therefore, special
efforts were made to stamp it out.
A secret agent travelled tne province, and left his bag at each weak
point. Thii is the actual solution
of the mult in Nora Scotia."

The debris, consisting of the deck,

proposed to adjourn >ho houu until

M-)%iWWMrtr »W»" to announce
UMu4aatti of this much respected
■an, wliich occnrred in Vic-
k!'0n the afternoon of Monday
iit. Mr. Smithe had many good
qualities, which will render his
passing away a real loss tothe provinoe. In the presenco of death any
referenoe to his political leanings
would be out of plaoe. His services
to the province will be remembered
only, and political antagonism will
ba forgotten. Bequieecat in pace!
From tht Put.
The sad newi of the death of
Hon. Wm, Smithe was heard with
unfeigned- regret last evening by
all classes in the community. Pew
pnhlic men were better known or
■none, universally esteemed than the
lata premier, and the announcement
that he had gone to his reward after
weeks- of pain and suffering created
widespread .sorrow. At the residence of the hon. the provincial
secretary he passed peacefully away,
surrounded by his sorrowing family
and friends.. A good man has died,
and hia name will long be revered,
From tlie Times.
The event was not unexpected for
it became' apparent many days
linoei that his race was about run.
Thou who were his mott intimate
friends observed that the changes
ware always for the worse, and that
the end was not far off, Yet strong
hopes were entertained by many
that hii constitution would withstand the attack and ultimately
throw off the malady with which he
was affected. In this, however,
their were mistaken, for the disease
hail taken too strong a hold on a
constitution not the most robust,
whioh; it at last conquered and
claimed him at a victim, Fora
lengthened period he was a great
lufferer; but for the last few days
ot hii life hii sufferings are reported
to have been intense. To the last
the; -ate premier evinced great con
earn, in the affain of the province.
It ia reported that many councils
were held at hii bedside daring the
present session. That he will be
missed from amongst us is admitted
by political friend and opponent.
He waa affable to all that had busi*
mm to transact in connection with
hia department He wai honest
«lid unselfish to a degree.
, From the Colonist.
* During his last houn he was surrounded by his sorrowing family
and friends. He was rational to
tlie latest moment and took an af
feotionate farewell of his wife and
children. He expressed his thorough resignation to the will of Providence, and stated that he had
made hia peace with Ood, and died
in the firm hope of a renewed and
glorious life hereafter. Hit spiritual
adviser waa the Ten. Archdeacon
Scriren, who was at his bedside
daring his last momenta. During
his illness his medical attendants
were Hon. Dr. Helmcken, and Drs.
Powell, Davie and McSwain. His
devoted wife was constant in her
attendance upon the deceased day
and night, and all that loving care
and science could do was gladly
dene, hat the angel of Death had
claimed hiin for his own. He leaves
a wifo and three children, one daughter sad two sons, the youngest of
whom ia four years. And so peace-
folly' and i calmly passed away a
E-neroui soul. He had reached the
ighest goal that hit adopted provinoe oould give him; be had attained the strict confidence of the
country in hii integrity and ability;
be had built himself a home in or
der that he might enjoy the results
of hii success, and was looking forward to increased prosperity and
' ' .with his noble wife and in-
iting family. The yean of per-
nt effort and worry and pain
> to be relieved, and in the prime
aU lifer he was honored among tbe
kM-stt In the land. But it is all

Tht writer recently enJoMtl «W>
oral hours at a oountry Inn with s number of detectives.   Oneof them said:
"A tow.yenrs ago I was summoned
by telegraph to a small town ln Ohio to
tube hold ot a murder case. An old lady
living alono on the outskirts of the town
Imd been found murdered at least two
days before discovory.
"That robbery waa the motive was
provod by the fact that1 the home had
Men thoroughly ransacked.
"The toarch had been ao thorough
that it wat likely the murderer spent
several hours tn the house after bit horrible deed, i He bad oven taken the old.
woman's teocttelcs,. uDUflboi, thimble,
nnd other trifles ot thfrtott; but he had'
departed without leering a trace.
"Tho Sherill and oonBtablea and
all tbe townspeople had made up their
mlndt that the murderer was a young
man named John Wlnthrop, ths old
woman's nephew.
ti It was known that he often appealed
to her for money when hard up, and that
only two or Hires weeks before the murder the had refused to advance him
another dollar.
" It was a fair due to work on, and I
went to Cincinnati to work up Wlnthrop.
"I discovered that he had beon teen on
the train running from Cincinnati to
Blonkvllle on the afternoon ofthe raur*'
der. Ho was also known to have returned to Cincinnati on the morning
nfter. I went up and down the country, seeking hirn, but all in vain.  >
"There was one thing In the caie whioh
pusiled me. Why had the murderer
packed up and carried away the trifling
articles I have mentioned? I had never
met with anything like lt In all. my
experience, and my mind was halt made
up on the very start that the orime wee

und among other people there, waiting

50 years ot age. Ataheaatreadlng hor
spectacles fell off, and one glass rolled
out ol tho framo. It waa'my fortune, to
nit in or her and to plok up the glasses.
A* I did so she said:

'' Well, I got away by myself to think,
I had teen that mail somewhere., It was
midnight, and I wss fifty miles away
when I suddonly placed him. He was
ine of the Jurors at the Inquest 1
" Next day I was back ln the village
when the murder occurred. The speo*
aclet wire identified by several ot the
lelghbors. I found the man to be a
worthiest tort of fellow living a milo or

diat he wat a Juror on the inquest and lt

waa alto true that he had been at Mon-
roovllle at the time named. '
"I went alone to arrest him. I called
at his house In tho evening, under pretense ot engaging his atrviote, ana a
he tai by Ms own flreelde, unfounded
by hit wife and ohildren, I made it known
who I waa and oharged him with the
crime.
"He wilted like a weed In the inn as
he comprehended what my words meant
but hii wife waa made of different stuff.

for tho hangman, tome quibble of law
saved their necks, and Nth ara now

"Two or thru years ago,"taid an.
otter of tha group, "on* of the big
dlitllltraU Peoria. Illinois,wu robbed
of a goodly Mm byhlt oonndntial clerk.
I wu tint' dawn from Chicago to work
up tho cut.
"The name of ths clerk wat Charles
Allbright, and he wu deeorlbed to me u
a dapper little fellow without beard, and
wllh a voiceu soft u a woman'!.
" The money had been drawn to make
a pun-hate of grain. It wu to have
beta paid lout on that day, .but wu not
cellod for. and tbe olerk gobbled It tome
time bofore 6 o'clook In the evening and
8 o'clook next morning.
" The Ant raovewu to ascertain whet
Iralm bad left Peoria during this time
and to Dnd whioh one Allbright had
takon.
" The place Is quite a railroad centra,
but In one day I ascertained that the
thief had not left the town either oii
a froight or passenger train. Had he
Mono by the highway? I vltltod every
llvory stable,, bnt got no MM ot kin.
Ho bad gone, but how? '
"Aftor two whole daya apent In

"On the train wua young lady whole

" At brcalifast wo wore waited upon by
such a trim, tidy second girl that my attention was attraoted to her. Tbo
widow must have remarked it, for sho
exclaimed:
" • It Is a new girl, who hu been with
me but two days. Sho is very awkward,
but scorns willing to learn*'
" The girl was Indeed awkward, as I
afterword noticed, but the idea that the
know anything conneoted with the
Peoria robbery never entered my head
until tbe third day.
1 " I had been at the depot to make
tome inquiries about trains, and wu
about leaving when I saw her enter the
waiting room. She wu olosely veiled,
but I know her figure, and I reasoned
tliat the had given the widow very short
notk-o.' i
"Itwunot Impoetible that this new
girl was a thief, audi determined to
speak to her and ucertaln her reasons
for leaving. At I started toward her
sho sprang up and rushed out doors.
That was a sign of guilt which I could
not disregard, and I gave obese. She led
rae a sharp run tor half a mile, and when
"Ipel tb* handmfft on Atr wMf."
I oollarod her she struck out from the
shouldor, and gave me a beautiful blaok
eye. In return I put the hand-cuffs on
her wrists, and they bad scarcely
snapped together when she said:
" Woll, old chap, I suppose the Jig Is
up. What kind of second girl do I make,
anyhow?"
"It was Allbright, and no mistake.
Ho had loft Peoria ln the evening,
disguised ns a female, and his make-up
and appoaranoo wore so deceiving that
he mado two or three meshes before
reaching Decatur;
" My coming ta tho house wu what bad
sent him away. He saw me watching
him, and thought that I would soon drop
on his dluguleo."
"It wouldn't bo strange If luck had
helped ine out occasionally, for I havo
been In this business over twenty years,"
sold another of the doteotlves. " A rioh
old' fellow named Sumner, living near
Louisville, wu found dead in hit bod
one morning lose fall. He had been
married twice, and had two sets of
ohildren.
"It was known fora faot that ho had
made a will but lt could not be found.
Tho heirs tauuiod oach other with having
stolen the will, and pretty soon the
law and thn lawyers were called In,
and there was a big light over tbo
ettate, valued,- I believe, at about
1200,000.
" Ono of the hoirs by his first wife engaged my services In the case. He was
suro that one of tho heirs by the second
wife, who was known to have visited tho
old man tho day beforo bis death, had
stolen and destroyed the will, This surmise wns of no uso, but tor a long time
wu all I had to work upon ln the attempt to discover what nad become of
tho missing will.
"I spent a month on the cue and
then droppod It, The estate went Into
oourt and I took up the chase of a horse
thief. Ho had stolen several hones In
Ohio and run them Into Kentucky.
His headquarters were at Elisabeth-,

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
IX.IMITHD.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern wis purchased by t
joint stook oompany composed of citizens
of Ntw Westminster, to be known as tbe
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho ooncem hll been for
nearly a year owned tnd controlled by
the Britiih ColumbU Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The objeot of
tho new oompany il to continue tht publication of tht British Couh-bia* newipaper md carry on a general printing ud
publishing concern, oontnlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest it will be
to promote the development, ttpeoially
of tlit Mainland. There will he no
slackening of tbt energy hitherto displayed in the management of tht establishment, and itt patrons may niy upon
receiving full vtlut for tbelr money.
The Columbian will continue to lw entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of snch schemes aa
may be considered In tha publie Interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
iny other bnsiness, tht book tnd
stationery establishment in thii city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own name tnd for hit own benefit.
It Is desirable thit a daily newspaper
should he maintained in this oity, tnd
the new company asks for publio patronage on the ground that It Is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that thi Columbia!) ho judged on Itt own merit! and
supported only so long as Ita polioy is
enoonslstt with iti professions. In oon-
sequence of this business change ill accounts dos tbe concern mutt be settled
without delsy so that tht books of tht
former company mty be adjusted tnd
closed. Address all communications and

Cabinet Making.-Since tlw death
of tiro leader of tho government considerable speculation hai been indulged in with respect to the composition
of the new cabinet. The victoria
Times las, constructed one as follows,
and thinks it will be about right: A.
E. B. Davie, premier and uttorney-
general; Robt. Dunsmuir, president, of
the counoil (without a portfolio); Geo.
Martin, provincial secretory; D. W.
Higgins, finance minister; Jno. Rob-
ton, chief commissioner of lands and
works.

O. B. Ackei'iuan, who has been for
somo montha residing in tho city, and
T. Ackerman, who hal just nrrived
from Seattle where he has been engaged in tho building and contracting
business. Both members of the new
firm havo brought their families and
propose to remain. The firm has already taken several contracts for
buildings in the city.
Medal and Diploma.—The lato H.
A. Hyde sent a splendid collection of
insects, gathered from all parti of the
province, to the Colonial and Indian
exhibition, A few daya ago his friends
recoived a diploma in recognition of
this collection, with tho information
that a medal would be forwarded in a
few days. Last night the medal av*
rived, and a very handsome one it is.
The design is similar to Mr. Doane's,
having a profile of the Princo of
Wales and on the opposite side the
inscription " Colonial and Indian Ex-*
hibilion, 1880."
Changed Hands.— Luke Pither, of
Victoria-; wiil assume chargo of the
Culonial Hotel in this city to-morrow

man, having been connected .with some
of the leading houses in the provinco,
and is ono who thoroughly understands
hotel-keeping ill every department.
Under his hands the Colonial will be
subjected to a thorough renovating,
to say nothing of somo changes ho contemplates otherwise. There is no
doubt but that the Colonial will still
retain the reputation it has always had,
viz., that- of being the leading hotel on
the mainland.

would reach this province early in
April. He hai written to say, how-
evec, that he will not como before

Kootenay Indian Troubles.--Referring to the troublo with the Kootenay Indians over the arrest of Kapln,
the Victoria Times of Tuesday says:
Wo learn, on semi-official authority,
that the government hus telegraphed
to Judge Vowell, at Sand Point, to return to Victoria. It is undentood
that the Indians will not be disturbed
until the spring, when a force of
mounted policemen will be tent into
the country sufficiently strong to enforce order and sustain the law. Officer Anderson, who was compelled to
leavo ou account uf tlio part he took in
the arrest of the murderer, Kapls,
afterwards forcibly liberated, has arrivod in Victoria. The position in
Kootenny is a very grave one and the
slightest mis-atei) might provoke a
massacre of the white inhabitants.
A Vivid Imagination.—The Vancouver News had a dream lately, and
this is what it saw: " Who lives lo
see the first sun uf lhe .next decade
gild the anow capped peaks which sentinel Vancouver, will look upon a city
not live years old, with a population of
thirty thousand souls, with magnificent ocean steamers cleaving the calm
waters of the bay, with ahipi of ull nation! discharging at our wharves;
with sealing vessels, tome just starting for tho remotest courses of the
earth, othora from the ooean hastening
to lay their tribute at our feet; while
above the roll and roar of the traffic
thrill and dear the whiatle of the incoming train announces a continent
crossed in four days; and from faotory,
ahop and milt riiei the ceaaeless
clangour which proclaims a haven of
peace and prosprity,"
 ,-,	
Fob B. O.—The St. John's, Newfoundland, Telegram of the 2d February lays: " Amongst the largo number of passengers (some 25 or 30) who
left these shores on the Portia yesterday, are Messn. Whittle*, Joy and
Gruchy, sons of fishing planters, and
fishermen themselves, the very " bont
and linew," who have made the staple
industry of Newfoundland what it is,
but who, in consequence of the unre-
munerative character of their nttivt
punuiti here, have lo teek their fortune! abroad. They will bring their
experience and knowledge to bow on
tht development of the iiihory resources of Britiih Oolumbia. For lht
roport of Messn. Whiteley, Gruchy
and Joy a thousand of our best fisher-
men will anxiously wait, So : far all
the accounts fmm British Oolumbia
are cheering; but fishermen til over
the world aro slow to ohange. .Tlie
men who are gone carry with (horn
the confidence of their compatriot!
tnd a full knowledge of thoir needt
tnd cipabilities; ana if they say come.
to utt a fishirmin'i phrase, there will
in all probability be'agreat dear
out'." '
Remember "Unknown" at the Drill
Shed thit evening.
Freight Activity.—-The amount of
freight that haa paesed over the C, P.
N. wharf, bound both eaat aud weat,
during the last three days, is unparalleled in tho hiatory of Westminster.
About tixty car-loadi have arrived
from the east. About half hai been
discharged. The actual freight charges
received in the O. P. R. offices yesterday was $6301.88. It it needless to
■late that no city west of the great
cities of Ontario, on the line of the
0. P. R , can boast of euch enormous
receipts during- a single day. The
Yosemite on her departure for Victoria this morning had on board about
200 tons of freight, actual weight, or
in the neighborhood of 600 tons by
measurement. The Reliance took up
to Chilliwhack to day about 110 tons
by measurement. Aud already there
are about twenty more car-loadi
accumulated awaiting. the arrivtl of
tho Yosemite.

expect to have their new machinery in
full operation about the middle of
May, -They will give work to about
35 men. Tho Bald Head Co. have
about 1200 feet of tunnel. They
struck soft ground lately, and expect
lo get through to bed rock about the
lst of Jue. They employ six men at
present. The Selkirk Co. employ
seven men. Tiiey are very close to
bed reck, and the prospects are good.
They have now 800 feet of tunnel,
The Big Bend Quartz Mining Co.,
which is composed of gentlemen from
Winnipeg, are prospecting here, and
have sufficient encouragement to jus-
tisy them in bringing in a quartz mill.
On French creek there are three companies operating. One of these lut
fall took out 81100 worth of gold in
about ont month. The McMillan Co.
realized about $1500 in rery thort
time, The McLean Co. are at present sinking a shaft. On Smith creek
fire companies are operating. It is
situated on the west side of the Columbia, opposite Gold Oreek. Tho
prospocts are good,

Rather Sudden.- • Lady Macdonald, who rode through the mountain
rogion last summer on a cow-catcher,
has written a very interesting account
of her journey, whioh appear-, in
Murray's Magazine. Everybody has
heard that it is only a step from the
sublime to the ridiculous, and Lady
Macdonald furnishes at least one illustration of the common saying,
Speaking of the trip from Lytton to

shadows.moving over mountain aides,
of massive cliffs rising a ^hundred feet

among huge boulders in depths below.
A softer landscape now lies before me,
as I dream af graceful hillsides, sloping to green meadows, and woodland
glorious with the magnificent foliage
of British Columbia—of a great lake
with park like clumps of trees decking
its green islands—of datp bayt let in
