The following extract is from the
San Francisco Journal of Commerce
which lately sent a-speoial curreBpond-
eut tu writo up this province. Writing of thu trip from Victoria to this
city hu Bays: The mouth of thu Fraser
cannot easily be distinguished by a
stranger owing to the lowness of the
laud. Captain George Vancouver nearly a century ago, whose book I have
on my knee—deeming it unu uf old ns
if I were reading Herodotus-entirely
missed the]
MOUTH OF THE PHASER,
But went into Uurrard'a Iulct, fourteen
miles N. N. W, I gazed on tho scene
with interest as wo entered tho river.
There nro two channels or arms, and
Now Westminster city to which we are
bound, is just above their junction,
fifteen miles up. Awny to the right,
on the shore, is a high, white-faced
cliff ending a wooded promontory, called Point Roberts, which is severed
by the boundary line—ttio 49th parallel. Further on, the mountains seem
to run inland beyond Bight, returning
to the seaboard a long way north, about
Burrard Inlet, We entered by the
southern arm.' The river is about a
half milo broad* current threo or four
mile an hour, water clay-colored, but
good to drink when filtered, tho banks
low and muddy, no rocks visible, depth
considerable ut high water, the tide
goes sixty miles up; vessels drawing
18 to 20 foet have gone 110 miles up.
On both sides a wide expanse, covored
with an immense growth uf wild grass,
only a few clumps of trees, dotted with
farm steadings and fences, soil deep,
blaek earth urblueclny, Northeasterly a belt closes the surface view,
showing thicker timber in the distance
up tho rivor. A man at my elbow,
slouch hat, dirty suBpcnders, jcnu
pants tucked into muddy boots, four
days' beard streaked with tobacco
squirts, bony, honest iace, healthy,
hardy and very much at liis ease, who,
from, Nebraska had settled here a few
years ago, answered my questions very
kindly, nud spoke in high terms of tlm
farming capabilities of thia Lower FraBer region, or New Westminster district, us it is called. **Say! I'll wager
that we can raise right here larger und
botter crops, acre for acre, than can
be raised anywhere on the continent,
Red' River and the,Wabnsh included.
Put up your money aud I'll name the
farms. Don't care what the crop js,
any grain, any root. I'll take you on
fruits, ton. You bet we'll come out
ahead. Vou can't beat ub either on
thick-meated, sweet beef and mutton,"
Ascending the river, which has islands
and many fine roaches and a fairly
good channel, tho low, marshy ground
gave plaoe to meadow and then the
meadow to jungle timber not diflicult
to clear, past salmon canneries and
wharves and post successive farms,
until, rounding a point, wo suddenly
come in view of
NRW WESTMINSTER
On the right bank—sawmills and can-
norieB and lines of wharves, witli
numerous river steamers—a long, gen-,
tie slope for the townsite, covered with
publio buildings, houses aud streets—
a very pretty picture.    This is tho
firincipul, or rather among many vil*
ages, the only eity on the mainland,
It has about 3,000 permanent inhabitants, and a considerable filiating population. I got capital quarters ou lauding, and nfter an excellent dinner, with
water very delicious, with or without
a "stick" in it, walked through thu
city. Tin gently rising ground alt'ords
goud drainage facilities. There aro
many important buildings and hand-
sottiu dwellings, Among the former
are half a dozen churches, a high
school, denominational colleges and
schools, public schools, an asylum,
penitentiary, Canadian government
postoffice-and othor buildings. Ou my
way to the suburbs of Sapperton, and
afterwards from thu upper part of the
oity, I had somo pleasing aud even
grand water aud mountain views up
river—tho "Queen'a Reach" is' vory
fine—nnd a magnificent panorama in
the -oppr.situ direction, of which thu
principal features wore the two arms
of the Fraser, the gulf and the mass of
i&lotB with the low hilU of Vancouver
in the distance. Next morning I visited the business portions of the city,
sawmills, tanneries, breweries, foundry
aud so forth, nil of which seemed to bo
thriving, and afterwards spent some
timo verifying the statements uf the
farmer ou the steamboat and in collecting furming, climatic and other
facts from authentic sources. At midday an opportunity offered for visiting
Burrard Inlet iu a smull steamer,
whieh was to proceed down tho north
arm of the Fraser and round the shore.
This was exactly the trip that suited
me, ao I embarked in haste, intending
to return by land from Burraid Inlet
to New Westminster, Burrard Inlet
is the terminut of the Canadian Pacific
railway, and to judgo of it rightly a
sea approach is necessary. Tlie nortii
anu of tho Fraser down which wu
steamed 'is about 100 yards wide, but
being shallow, aay 0 to 8 feet it may
be called only a boat bhantiul. It
reaches the ion about 5 miles north of
thu Fraser sand heads, and itself is
split • into two short arms at its mouth
by a large, low, wooded island.
THE SOU, IS VERY RICH
Along the north arm of the Fiaserand
there nre many fine farms. Complaint
is made that some of tho land is held
by speculators. It is about nine miles
from the mouth of the north nnn to
Burrard Inlet, but sand luniks, dotted
with drift timber, stretch a long way
offshore, nnd our little steamer hud to
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 26
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24,1884.
NUMBER 50
keep out before heading for Point
Grey,'which is a long wooded promontory ending in n rounded bluff. This
forms the southern headland of the
entrance to Burrard Inlet. Opposite
to Point Grey, northerly from it, is a
high island close to the mainland, with
a round, almost hare, summit. Tin's
latter maybe said to form the northern'
headland of the entrance to Burrard
Inlet. The bay thus formed, called
English Bay, is four miles long and
three miles wido. A narrow entrance
at its head leads into Burrard Inlet
proper. Thero is also at its head a
tittle inlet called False Creek. English
Bay has good anchorage from 30 fathoms downwards. It is land-sheltered,
except to the west, but winds rarely
blow directly from the west. The area
is reduced somewhat by a hard sand
bank,dry at low water, which stretches
for a quarter of a mile oft' Point Grey.
This bank protects the anchorage in
somo degree on its only exposed side;
a broakwater, not a costly undertaking,
would make the anchorage purfect.
The tide rises 10 feet nt springs, There
is plenty of fresh wator. On the south
shoro of the bay we passed a clean,
shelving bench, and back from that on
the lnnd there seemed to me to be
ample space for a town. Hore, then,
did no other suitable place exist in the
locality, is an ocean terminus for the
railway. But let us enter tho inlet
proper — Burrard's Inlet—-from this
bay just described, which may he called the outer anchorage of
IIURKA1U) INLET.
The on trance to the inlet proper is not
exactly "plain sailing," except with
wind and tide favoring, or in tow, but
it may be called a good entrance, because over 1000 ships havo loaded ut
tho sawmills inside the inlet, with
scarcely an nccident in going in or
coming out. The channel is deep and
clear, but it is narrow, hence nt times
tho tidal current is vory swift. For
half a mile the channel is only about a
cable and a half wide, and it iB somewhat narrow for three-quarters ot a
mile further, when the broad inlot is
reached. This is tho principal port of
Burrard Inlet; the eyo rests on a placid sheet of wator nbout as big as English Bay. Ou ench side is a sawmill,
with ships loading. The water shoals'
from 30 fathoms iu tho middle to either
side. The best anchorage is at Coal
Harbor, which is on the south side of
the expanse aiid about two milea within. Tin- lnnd thoro appears to ho suitable and sufficient for uny rnihniy,
shipping or city purposes. Coal Harbor has boon chosen by the Canadian
Pacitio Kailway Company as their terminal harbor and it certainly is nn
admirable one iu itself and particularly
in relation to tho outed anchorage in
English Bay. The magnificent, woll-
aheltcred, almost contiguous havens,
leave nothing to ho desired in the requirements of a seaboard terminus for
a transcontinental line — navigation,
searoom, anchorage, mooring, dockage,
wharfage and largo, suitable land area
adjoining. To iny Burptiso I was informed that what set-mod to the eye
the heud of the inlet some four miles
away, was not the head of it; u second
narrow passage there led.to a long arm
among mountains, and' a small oast
arm, the latter called Port Moody.
I accordingly visitod the. latter pluco.
Tho entrance to it from Burrard Inlet
proper is much like tho first entrance
already described from English Bay
into Burrard Inlet—tho oue is here
called tho "first narrows" and the
other the "second narrows." Port
Moody has been used by the railway
contractor as a loading place for material, It is a snug, clear harbor, about
throe miles long hy one-third to one-
half mile wide and will be useful as au
adjunct to the Burrard Inlet harbor
proper. It is not iu itself naturally
suitable for a terminal harbor; hnving
to be reached through two "narrows,"
being deficient comparatively in com*
modiousnesa and in extent of suitable
adjoining land area, though with advantages of its own that may mako it
a uoeful adjunct, as above said, if required in the future. It was skinned
over with ice lately to tiie thickness of
six inches; tho main Burrard Inlet
harbor is always entirely open. From
the above It is evident that the Canadian Pacifio railway not'only has a terminal port on the seaboard, but has
one difficult to equal, consisting iu
fact of
TWO   MAONIFICENT HARItORS
Supplementing ench other and a useful
adjunctive sheltered ..sheet of. wnter.
Back again to New Westminster from
Port Moody on foot, by a road rather
too muddy at this season to bo pleasant.
All next day busy in making further
inquiries about thu district in general
which I shall aiiintimrinu the result of,
furl hur ou. The following morning 1
started from the landing opposite thu
city to rido thruugh tho country to
Hopo. The railway runs on thu right
bank'of the Fraser and the-wtlgon road
on the left bank. I chose tho wagon
road, as tho groat bulk of thu farming
laud is oil the left bank, stretching
thence to the American- boundary and
fifty or sixty miles up tho river. The
road was good, hut uot so my hoisejir
"cnyoosh" as they call liim; 1 could
only Hag him into a rough, slow canter
at intervals. At tirst. tlie ride was
through bush nntl over somo gravelly
ridges, but -these latter are only uoar
tho river at thu part;* tracts of rich soil
lio to the south ward and eastward.
Tho farmers aro comfortable, hopeful
and very hospitable. At Lnngley, Sumas and Chilliwhack are large settlements, rich soil, good grass and as nice
farms us oan be seen any whero—a
homelike look about many of the steadings. Tho school houso everywhere;
in one, or rather playing around oiie,
I saw fifty or sixty most healthy children.     The  people generally  looked
hearty and vigorous—a population lif
ihe bost kind from the British Isltw,
Eastern Canada and other States.
Hope is a (pretty village ou the left
bank of the Frasor, towards the head
of the district, It is the puck trail
utlet for a considerable strip of the
southern interior of tho province —
Siinilkauieeu and thei-eaboiitH. I looked over my notes hero as to the lower
Fraser, or New Westminster district,
aud got firmly into my mind ltd (lit*
tinctivo character—the const or seaboard section of the several regions iu
the province through which the Canadian Paoifio railway passes. It is a district with

Southern Railway Connection.
This journal has always contended that a railway from Now Westminster to Washington Territory
would beo6rae a feeder to tlie O.P.R.
instead of a rival. When tlio Dominion vetoed the New Westmin-
Btorn and Southern Railway bill on
the ground that it would interfere
with the Canadian Pacific, we pointed out the absurdity of taking such'
a position. But Sir Alexander
Campbell virtually confessed when
here that he bad been stuffed at
Victoria with the idea that the interests of the O.P.R. would be seriously jeopardized, and the bill had
to lie slaughtered. It seems to us
plain enough that if tlie C.P.'R. has
so many advantages over tlie N.P.H.
in shorter mileage and better grades,
it is well able to compete with the
American road for the Puget Sound
trade. Somo of the settlements
across the boundary, notably Whatcom, are looking to the O.P.R. as
their highway of communication.
The Whatcom Reveille of a late dato
says: "The brightest hopes of Whatcom county with reference to rail-1
road connection with .the far east
are in the direction of the early
completion of the Canadian Pacific
and its connection with Belingham
Bay through our local railroad already under way. The Northern
Pacific, wfi fear, will not be built to
this city for five years, because of
financial stringency in money markets; and the same depression will
probably prevent the floating of
bonds to build the line projected by
Senator Oanfield, It will certainly
be built, but we fear not for the
present. Railroads in the United
States are suffering on account of
hard times. While a bitter fight
has been made against the Northern
Pacifio, the English government has
lavished millions of dollars upon the
Canadian Pacific; and much as we
regret to admit it, we must look to
the Canadian railroad for an outlet
to inhrkftt. Again, water navigation
via the Sound will naturally defer
the building of the railroad from
Bellingham Bay to Seattle. The
distance from St. Paul to Whatcom
via the Northern Pacific is about
1800 miles; by the Canadian Pacific,
1785—quite a difference. It seems
entirely probable under tlie circum-
s'ances that the completion of the
Canadian Pacific and its connections
wity | gjye Whatcom a boom at an
early date."
circulated respecting railway construction in this province, and the
manner in wliich contracts are
manipulated nud vouchers obtained,
we sbould fill a good-sized pamphlet. . It has been our policy to confine our remaks to that only which
can bo provod boyond dispute. If.
there has' really been any attempt
to interfere with Mr. Marcus
Smith's absolute independence as an
officer, nothing that misht be said
in condemnation of thoso guilty of
such scheming could be too severe.
It is to be hoped, for the sake of
all parties concerned, that this
matter may bo cleared up.
A Few Observations.
In another column we reprint a
letter from Victoria which appeared
in a recent- numlier of the Toronto
Globe.   Generally this letter is well
written  and   correctly  represents
the circumstances.   It is disfigured
by some exaggerations, which arc a
common error in British Oolumbia
correspondents   of   eastern  newspapers.    These people seem to imagine that a statement of unvarnished faet would not strike eastern
readers with sufficient wonder, and
hence the object of artificial coloring.    If we are to believe the local
newspapers  Victoria is both a very
wicked and very dirty city, and the
letter we quote probably puts forward that fact as forcibly as tlie
facts would justify,    The Chinese
evil may seem to some an exaggeration, but it is scarcely possible to
exaggerate it    The more one reflects upon this matter, the more
deeply grows   tbe conviction that
the  Dominion  government is not
guarding the interests of this province when it refuses to confirm tlio
acts of   restriction passed  by our
own legislature.    Unless the remedy is applied speedily and firmly,
it may come too late to effect a
cure.     It is quite possible many of
these poor creatures aro not responsible,   but   we   maintain   that
they   have no  business here and
should not be allowed to endanger
the whole fabric of our social and
political system.    The federal government cannot really know how
far-reaching  nre tho evils arising
from the presence of  large numbers of these peoplo in tbis province, or it would  manifest greater
concern for our deliverance.   There
is another matter mentioned in this
Victoria letter which deserves pub-
He attention.     It is the statement
respecting a rumor that an attempt
had been made to remove Mr. Marcus Smith, engineer in charge of the
railway construction on behalf of
the government.  • There have been
- rumors of a similar nature going
about this city, and the matter is
one ot  such deep concern to the
whole country and to the federal
government that it is  worthy of
enquiry.    If we were to publish
half the rumors which have been
Danger of Monopolies.
Tho Dakota Newtt is authority
for the statement that monopolies
and national taxes are draining tho
life blood of the farmers of Dakota.
It is quite certain that the extremely low price of wheat tins year will
seriously affect many of the farmers
and may work bankruptcy aud ruin
in many eases. Tliis does not apply
to Dakota with mora force than it
applies to several other places. In
Manitoba and the north-west Canadian territories the absence of competing transportation, nnd tbe consequent monopoly, keeps prices of
produce down to the very lowest
possible poiut, and somo o'f tlie farmers will certainly suffer. In the
east there are many farms with
heavy mortgages standing against
them. It is the expectation of the
owners that the annual profits of
the farm will be at least sufficient
to meet all current expenses and
pay the interest ou the mortgage.
When prices go down as low as they
now are, this expectation fails, the
interest is unpaid, and in hundreds
of eases thero is foreclosure, and the
farm goes under the auctioneer's
hammer. It is said that wheat at
less than 90 cts. a bushel does not
pay the farmer in Ontario; and in
mora western regions, although the
cost of farming is generally less, the
limit of profitable wheat-growing
has in all probability been passed
this season. It seems to be the object of the railways to keep prices
down tn the lowest possible point
in order to take as much for freights
as the grain will stand. The result
of this policy has too often been to
discourage agriculture and inflict
permanent injury upon the country.
Instead of taking a low rate and
establishing a permanent source of
revenue, the railway companies have
sometimes foolishly killed the hen
that laid tbe golden eggs. It seems
to us the true policy of a railway
company is to adopt such rates as j
will build up the country, even if |
the rate scarcely covered tbe cost of
transportation. The more thickly
a country becomes settled, and the
more wealthy these settlers become,
the more will they consume of manufactured articles. It is the transportation of these, and the passenger
traffic, that the carriers will make
their profits and compensate them
selves for low rates on grain. The
people of the mainland of Britisli
Columbia havo laid a taste of monopoly this year Sufficient to enable
their sympathies to go out to those
who are similarly afflicted, Whether
the burden will be lighter or heavier
next year, when the road passes into
the bands of its real proprietors, the
syndicate, remains to be seen. It
is -a matter in which every resident
of tlie country is interested, and if
tbe syndicate is wise we think it
will adjust its tariff so as to give
tha greatest possible inducements
to the rapid and permanent settlement of this country. It will be a
good while before the road will pay
unless the generous policy of the
company plants customers in British
Columbia.

As Usual.—Victoria papers seemto
delight above all things iu misrepresenting New Westminster. On Saturday we pointed out how far beside tlie
truth wore tho Colonist's remarks on
the Fraser river ice blockade. The
Standard ot Friday saya the ice "varied in thickness from three inches to a
foot." At that time there certainly
was no ice at this city as thick as two
inches. The same paper, referring to
this city, says: "Most of the snow
which fell during tho week has drifted
uut of sight," The snow that had
fallen at that time did not amount tu
a quarter of an inch, und waB not
drifted.

Heavy work will be carried on wherever practicable. Arrangements were
made to push the work of construction
next Bpring with the greatest- possible
vigor. Two new steamers are being

This will make 5 steamers un the lake

presented a sea of smiling, happy, expectant fnces--for it was known that
each one would receive a present before"
the performance closed. The performance consisted of music, recitations and
dialogues, but the great event towards
which every little eye lookod forward
wistfully was a magnificent Christmas
tree which stood near the platform.
It was wrapped in a veil, and when it
had been uncovered thore went up a
suppressed shout of admiration. Upon
this tree were tastefully arranged a
great profusion nf toys and candies
for the little ones, nnd tho whole was
beautifully illuminated with wax caudles. The gifts were distributed by
Mnator Willie Mclnnes, who had beon

"Words fail to express my gratitude,"
says Mr. Selby Carter, of Nashville,
Tenn., "for the benefits derived from
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Having been afflicted all my life with scrofula, my system seemed saturated with it. It came
out in blotches,-ulcers, and mattery sores,
all over my body." Mr. Carter states
that he was entirely cured by Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, and since discontinuing its
use, eight months* ago, has had no return
of the scrofulous symptoms.

FROST AND SNOW THROUGHOUT THE PROVINCE
This is one of the remarkable seasons
in British Columbia.    It is only occasionally that  the  thermometer gets
near zero at this city, and very seldom
that the coldest days come before January.    On Monday night the thermometer registered 3 deg. above zero,
the lowest that has been reached since
1875, when it went 7 below in January.
In 1862 observations'were made by
the Royal Engineers at Sapperton, and
the temperature is reported to have
boen 15 below zero.   The river was
frozen up for several weeks that year,
and did not open until some time in
March.   We   are indebted to Capt.
Peele   for the' following statement
showing the lowest rending of the thermometer each year sinco 1872, except
1881, which  could   not be obtained
without considerable trouble:
1873—31st January— 10    above
1874—21nt      "      —  8       "
1875—14th     "     —  7    below

1883- 18th January—   8       "
• 1884—23rd   Dec.    -  3       "
As far na the record goes we have
not been able to find that such severe
frost has ever before been experienced
so early iu the year. It does not fol-
that we may nut have still colder weather before the winter has passed, but
it does not soein likely that this cold
dip will continue nny length of time.
Ice opposite the upper part of tho city
was stationery yeBterday and packed
in solid enough to permit people to
cross with safety. Opposite the lower
part of the city the ice was thin and
moving about with the tide. The cold
wave seems to have extended over the
VWhose province, and far down the
American coast. By telegraph yesterday we obtained the following outside
reports:
...Victoria, Dec. 23.—Weather clear
and cold; thermometer went down to
11 above zero last night; nt 8 this
morning it stood 18 above, and at noon
20; about 5 or 6 inches of snow.
Ladneb'b, Dec. 23.—Cleur und cold;
thermometer 5 above zero this morning.
Nanaimo, Dec. 23.—Weather cold;
lust night thermometer indicated 14
deg. of frost; barometer rising fast
about 12 inches uf snow.
Granville, Pec. 23.—Weathor clear

Ed.]
Port Moody, Dec. 23.—Weather

free from ice.

morning registered 2 below zero; no

It is the severest we have experienced
for many years su early in. tho season.
Tho people hnve beeu quite prepared

fSpeolnl Telegram to the Columbian 1
Victoria, Dec. 23.—Leopold Loe-
weuborg, the well-known real estate
agent, died suddenly in this city at
1:30 Monday morning. He had been
in bis usual health up te Sunday evening, at which time ho entertuiiied a
number of ladies and gentlemen at
dinner, Shortly after the party broke
up he was taken ill, and died in a few
minutes. The cause of death waa heart
disease. Another pioneer, Jno. Smith,
for many yenrs proprietor of the Oak-
lnnds Hutel, died yesterday. On Friday and Saturday the weather moderated throughout the Oregon region,
'and the , heavy snow was followed by
heavy rain and slush storma, which
caused much damage. Telegraph lines
were prostrated in all directions, and
twenty or thirty milea will have to be
practically rebuilt.

On Thursday morning the examination of the Moodyville public school
took place, the children going through
all their exercises with cfedit to them*
selves and to their teachers. The
.children afterwards presented Miss
Kirkland with a very pretty Christmas'
present. In the evening the ladies
nf the Benevolent Society held a Bale
of fancy work in the. Institute Supper was served for 25 cents, after

DRESS ANO 0RNAMENE8 OF  TKE NATIVES.
The Hydas have au far adopted the
dress uf the whites, that with the exception of blankets- still much worn
by both sexes at their homes, nnd
dnncing suits- their original costumes
uro uow seldom seen. The blunket
lias been substituted for the sen-otter
clonk, trousers and dresses for tho
breech-cloth, and leather undergarments by wovon ones. The men wear
huts, but the women very rarely; a
handkerchief or shawl boing thoir
muat common head covering. Some
of the elderly Women, however, wear
lnrge hats of the Chinese pattern,
braided by them frum the roots of the
spruce tree. The women aro vory
foud of bright, striking colors; though
many exhibit considerable taste by the
selection of dark shades, suited to their
complexion. The men aro quite as
much inclined to overdress as the women, when they hnve the means. On
one of thu hottest days uf summer, I
saw nn Indian parading through the
village of Skidegate, dressed in a full
suit of bluck, including u heavy hearer
Ulster. Both men nnd women generally go with barefeet, except when engaged in some occupation away from
home, whieh exposes them to injury.
Nearly all the adults aro tattooed
upon the arms nnd lega, many upon
the breasts, nud occasionally une upon
the fnce. The designs usually represent tribal and family Croats and totem. The practice is being gradually
discontinued. The face is generally
painted fur dunces, by tho women
when mourning, and frequently by
both sexes whon travelling, to protect
it from the efiects of the sun and wind.
Vermillion, the fungus uf trees, burnt
and ground, common churconl, deer
tallow, and spruce gum are used for
this purpose. Labrets—pieces uf wood,
bone or shell, from H to 2_ inches in
length—aro worn by a few old females,
but this hideous monstrosity is now
never found upon the young women.
Many of tho middle-aged, however,
pierce the centre of the, lower lip and
insert a small silver tube, which projects about n quarter of an inch. Both
sexes perforate tho septum of the nose
fur rings, but I have only seen two
worn by the Hydas, aud theso were
silver. The medicine men, while performing their dances, sometimes insert n semi-circular bone frum eight to
tun inches in length. They are very
fund of ornaments, which are used in
profusion, especially upou their dance
nnd ceremonial dresses nud rubes, and
by the females upon their persons. I
saw a woman at Skidegate with sixteen
silver rings upon her hands, and two
'or three heavy silver bracelets are
quite commonly worn. Feathers,
mother-of-pearl buttons, puftin bills,
abnlune, dentulum nud other sheila,
silver pieces, and deer toes, nre among
their favorite articles of adornment.—

(iREAT natural advantages,
The length about seventy-five miles,
the breadth ten to fifteen miles, traversed longitudinally by a navigable
river, a railway aud n wagon rond, and
crossed by country roads and trails.
It "goes without saying" that the district muat be fertile, ns it is an alluvial
district formed by the Fraser. Thu
physical reason fur its existence is the
presence of the insular barriers, principally the great breakwater of Vancouver Island, which lie uff tho mouth
of the river, and by calming the sea
have prevented the detritus of the
Fraser from being entirely wasted in
the ocean, as in the case of Columbia
river, which, at its mouth, is exposed
to the western aurgea. Even thu Fraser, however, of course, must alwaya
have carried forward and projected
over the bed of the ocean, most of the
matter which it brought duwn. Still,
geologically, the history of thia doltic
nut iB recent, nnd we now in viewing
it can easily back-trace this history to
the time when the whole district wai a
shallow estuary of the sea, aud then
retrace, first, the sandbanks aud mud-
shoals funned by the pounding bnck of
the river water by the tides setting into the estuary, then the joining of
these banks nnd shoals into islands
studding the fluvis-marine expanse,
which, in turn by accreting the river
debris and marine silts became deltas,
and, finally, oue main delta next, over*
spread by luxuriant vegetnble growths,
which, decaying, mingled with tho
earthy debris tu make the rich, exuberant, loamy soil, which my friend in
tho slouch hat could uut praise too
much. There mny also Imve beun geologically recent oscillations of lnnd aud
sea, but I hud no time to observomure
than tho broader features of this ro-
mnrknblo cstunrine formation, now tho
sceno uf agricultural industry. The
surface of the Now Westminster district is low, except n few gravelly
ridges; the characteristic soil is deep
blaek earth, n very modern deposit, un
blue clay, diversified in parts with
sandy loam. Towards tho aea shore
aud in aome other parts it is open, but
in genoral is well timbered. Thu trees
seen by me woro the Douglas fir (tho
commercial tree uf Puget Sound) Meti-
zies fir, Grant cedar, western hemlock,
red alder, balsam poplar, birch, lnrge-
leaved maple, ete. .The natural hny
and grasses are goud fnr stook und pnr
ticulnrly for dairy cows. As"to the
climate, I collated carefully official
records with thu testimony of settlors
nud uf medical men. Between the
yenrs 1874 nnd 1880 the mean yearly
temperature wns 47' 0'; tho highest
maximum 1)2° 0'; the lowest minimum
—7° 0l; tho mean rainfall in inches
50.60. Ice forms in the river fur a
short time in must winters. Common-
ly annw begins iu January and goefe in
Mnreh, seldom lying continuously.
Thero ia no auue, which aome might
be afraid of in a rich, low-lying regien.
Yon don't see men sitting among black
furrows, drearily, with pale children.
I supposo that the stimulating mountain nnd sen breezes provent ague. In
n word, the climate, though mild, and
in sume parts rather humid, ia bracing
nnd zi-htfiil; it ia renpunaive tu the de-
mauds of every ' physical necessity.

THK ACTUAL YIELD IN FARMING
1 found, after careful enquiry, thut my
steamboat friend in the elouch hut hud
a really sound basis for his statements,
though made in un aggressive, wagering fashion, whieh inclined me to disregard them or at least nut to credit
them off hand. On evidence which I
cannot doubt the following exceptional
yields seem to be authentic—three tons
of timuthy per acre iu the twelfth consecutive crop, 80 bushels of wheat, also
02 bushels of fall wheat per measured
ncro. Ab the average on several well-
tilled farms, the following may be
noted: Wheat, 40 bushels per acre;
oats, 00 to 05; barley, 40; timothy, 3
to 3J tons; turnips, 40to 50 tons. The
roots are enormous; potatoes nnd vegetables, with squashes, pumpkins, melons, cucumbers and tomatoes, nlso
vurieties uf corn, do very well, Hops
ure a goud crop. The ordinary fruits
of u temperate clime grow large and
fine in all parts of the district. I saw
a 2-lb. nenr, a H-ib apple and an 8-
oupce plum. With these fttcts before
me, substantiating what might be in
ferred from the natural character and
climate of tho district, I cannut but
give a good report of it. I have spoken
of farming only, but the New Westminster district is not n merely arable
or dairying district, The lumbering
nud aalmon cannbg industries already
are vury large. Silver lodes exist.
Almost anything ia possible in a territory with such u soil and climate,
ao well suppliod with communications,
and lying, too, upon a sheltered seaboard. Progress here must be solid
and permnnent. The population lately hus considerably increased. I nm
inclined to; think thnt few places offer,
better chances to reel farmers with
some means; it is not, perhaps, n district to be recommended to men uf
very limited means.

A Victoria Letter.
(Correspondence of the Toronto Globe.)
1 Victoria, B. C, Nov. 2">.— A meeting
was held in the City Hall on Monday
evening to organize a Y.M.C. Association,
which waa largely attended. The gathering was a thoroughly representative one.
Amongst'the speakers were clergymen
representing all the evangelical denominations. The Hon. Jno. Robson, Provincial Secretary, during an admirable
address, made reference to the social evil
that existed in the eity. The scarlet
women were so abundant, said the speaker, that respectable ladies were insulted
by their presenco wherever they wont.
He likewise referred to other evils
abounding in the city. For uttering so
truthful a statement the hon. gentleman
was severely censured by the city council for his intemperate language. A very
largo majority, however, endorse the
speech of the Provincial Secretary, and
condemn the action of the council, who
certainly have made themselves a laughing stock in the matter.
'   A   FILTHV QUARTER.
Beyond question the vilest, filthiest,
disease-breeding, and death-producing
portion of any city iu Canada ia that
known as Chinatown in Victoria, within
two minutes' walk of the post-office,
The '-area is embraced within a couplo of
blocks, about tlie same size as your Toronto blocks. In this urea the Chinese
of Victoria subsist. They number from
2,500 to 3,000. This will give your
readers an idea of the space allotted to a
Chinaman. For streets they have alley
ways or lanes into whioh is dumped all
the filth from their wash-houses, decayed
vegetables, and such like. The stench
ascends and the whole atmosphere is
permeated with foul air. Here are to be
tound the Chinese gambling dives, the
opium smoking dens, the houses of a
questionable character, and such other
places as render this-tho "dark quarter"
of Victoria, equal to tbe "Seven Dials"
of London, or tho notorious Five Points
of New York. Yet the police wiuk at
all these vices; they allow Chinese to
work at carpentering, boot and shoe-
making, peddling, and permit all auch
employments as are carried on during the
week to be followed on the Sabbath day!
All thia in the Canadian Metropolis ou
the Pacific coast! The Time* has begun
a crusade against the heathen celestials
aud their habits, and it ia certain much
good must result from its exposure of the
many vices that are found to exist iu the
city and everywhere in the province
where Chinese are to be found. Already

A SIOKLV I'lTY,
At present thero is much mul irial fever
prevalent throughout the eity, somo
being of a very dangerous typo and very
fatal. Drainage is badly wanted, and n
scheme is nbw being considered with
thnt end in view. To carry drainage out
successfully an expenditure of over hnlf
a million will lie necessary. The city's
progress during the present year has been
astonishing; ttie houses built amount in
value to over "jillhi.iHHI, a result thnt fins
taken everyone by surprise. Added to
this should he the city's improvements
nnd expenditures by private parties nnd
the amount will foot up close upon throe-
quarters of a million. Another good yenr
Is looked for ns tlie dry-pock wfll shortly
be under wuy nnd tho construction of the
Island railway, from K'tipiimiiK to Nu-
nniuio, likewise in progress, all of which
will tend to keep money in circulation in
Victoria.   Alrendy  a  number  of  new
buildings are projected, many of them
being of a substantial elaborate nature.
The outlook, therefore, is highly encouraging. Tho failures in the city duriug
the year were nll but nil, only a couple
of trifling ones in which the amounts involved were less than $2,000.
IMMIUHAJ'IOX.
It is supposed the number of immigrants that came into the country during
the year will be about 12,000, of whom
seventy-five per cent, remained in the
province. A large area of agricultural
land has been taken up. Next year will
witness a much larger immigration, as
the means of transportation to reach this
country are now such as to offer every
advantage to tlie intending settler. Another through route will shortly be open.
It will be in connection with the Union
nnd Central Pacific, from Ogden in
Ut'ih Territory to Walleska Junction in
Eastern Oregon on the Northern Pacific
where connection will be made with the
Oregon Railway and Navigation Co.'s
system, giving this city and the sound
porta another outlet to the east. Canadians, however, will find it convenient
to como to Chicago by the Grand Trunk
or Michigan Central, thence by the Rock
Island to St. Paul, whero cars cau lie
taken and no change mado till reaching
Tacoma, from whence Bteamer is taken
for this port. The trip on the Sound is
a delightful one and gone over in a few
hours. From Victoria steamers run to
the mainland and the interior now easily
reached by train nnd atcamcrs ou the
upper lakes in Britisli Columbia. Un
the C. P. R. the Onderdonk contract is
proceeding rapidly. Trains are now running from Port Moody to Savona's Ferry,
a distance of over 200 miles. These are
only construction trains. The road ia
only graded, although a local journal
here would make it appear that the ballasting had been completed. In this connection I hear it mentioned that pressure
waB brought to bear on tho government,
to demand the resignation of Mr, Marcus
Smith who had charge of the work for
the Government. This wns made in
consequence of that gentleman's insisting
on the work being performed according
to specifications and not being a pliant
tool in allowing other irregularities. Be
that as it may, tlie roadbed is still unballasted and in many places in a very
unsafe condition, and Mr. Smith has
gone east.
THE TERMINAL CITV.
lt is understood in official circles here,
that all mattera relating to making Coal
Harbor the Pacific coast terminus of the .
C. P. R. have been settled ou the part
of the local government nod the syndicate. Port Moody will not be given the
go-by altogether, for a little village has
sprung up tlieic already. Tlie government have built a wharf and warehouses
at tliat point. Tho harbor accommodation, however, is-limited, and the only
land the syndicate can procure there is
but a few acres, whereas at Coal Harbor,
English Bay, and False Creek they get a
grant of about 7,500 acres from the local
government. That quantity is largely
supplemented by grants from private
property-owners. It is said the value of
the land grant alone is many millions,
while the cost of diverging the line and
increLsing its length 12 utiles would be
onlv halt a million. As yet no buildings
have beeu erected at Port Moody for the
requirements of the road. It is intended
to erect there shortly a round-house and
auch other edifices as will be found necessary. The workshops, round-houses,
and terminal buildings to be erected at
Coal Harbor will undoubtedly be large
and commodious and ample for future
requirements of the company; wharves
and docks have likewise to |ie constructed. All this must be accomplished next
yenr And good time's are looked for at the
terminus, which it is understood ia to be
called "Vancouver," Mr, VanHornehaving chosen that name foi tho future commercial metropolis of British Columbia.
Through passengers by the C, P. 11.

London-, Dec. 16.—The Timm says the
Nicaraguan treaty will excite amazement
in England and America. If the published version ia correct, it will undoubtedly enlist a distinct protest iu both
countries. It is a direct violation of the
Claytou-Bulwer treaty, and a more distinct violation than Blaine ever contemplated. Americans will not suppose that
Englishmen deprecate the treaty owing
to alarm at the extension of the American dominions, or that they mistrust
that the treaty will be abused to the injury of British trade, but they cannot approve the example of one State purchas
ing control of such waterways for personal advantage aud not as atrustee for the
world. The summary of the provisions
of the treaty as cabled to England contains uo provisions iu behalf of the
world's trade. A navigable highway l»e-

States.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
"But tliey are muoh more convenient, f*randpiipn," Baid Emma. "[Think
how I ahould havo been situated had a
girl always wanted hor uioUier with
her. Elinor, with hor family, cannot
alwaya be going out; nud when sho
goes she likes to amuse herself, ahe
does not go for me. A girl going out
with her mother means a devoted old
lady, like the mothers in books. Such
nonsense, you know; for a girl's mother, when Bhe is eighteen or bo, is
rarely moro than forty, and people of
forty like amusement just ns much ns
we do. It is bettor, on the whole, I
think, when every ono is for horself."
"Well, that is not my opinion," said
the old captain, shortly.
He was accustomed to, do most of
the talking himself, and it startled him
to have it thus taken out of his haml.
"I BUppoae nn invitation will como
forme, said Emma, calmly, "as soon
as they know I am horo; and thon
Hester nnd I can go togothor. Roland
snid there wna no dancing, but I think
it always safest to bring n ball-dross.
It is nut heavy, though it takes up a
good doal of room; but thon you, can
alwaya take ono box into tho carriage,
and the railway only charges by
weight."
"Roland ta very busy, 1 suppose, my
dear.   You only see him in tho evon-
•"(!■" .
"I don't alwaya aee him in tho evoning. He has his own friends, and I
am getting a few acquaintances, too.
If ho gives me a living nnd very littlo
to do, I ought to bo gratoful to lum,
but I would not let him give up his
own nmusemonts for me. That would
not bo fair. Oh yos, he is very busy.
He has found so many people to do
business for down hore.1'
"I hope to goodness ho won't speculate with thoir money and ruin them,"
Captain Morgan said.
"Ruin ! Oh I hopo not. But Roland saya thero is nothing so exciting
as to be on the verge of ruin. Ho snys
it is bettor than a play. For, instead
of looking on nt the noting, the acting
is going on inside of you. But it is
his trado to speculate, isn't it, grandpapa? Tlint is whnt ho is there for;
and he ia vory good at it, they say. T
suppose this girl has not tiny money.
When they are pretty and nice they
seldom have."
"What girl 1" said Captain Morgan,
almost haughtily-ns haughtily and
harshly as the old gentleman could
persuade himself to speak.
"Doesn't he know, grandmamma ?"
said Emma. "The girl Roland admired ao much ; nnd she would juat do
for him, if she had some money ; but
ao nice looking ns he is, and so well
established in business, I dun't think,
unless there is money, ho should throw
himself awny,"
"la it Hester Vernon that you
mean ?'' asked the captain, in an angry
voice.
"She does not mean nny harm, Rowley. Don't you see, Hester is to her
an abstract person, not tho dear girl
she is to yuu and nio. And Emma,"
said the old lady, almost with timidity,
"I foar your bull-dross will not bo of
much use. Mrs. Morridow will not
think of inviting you. She will not,
perhaps, know you aro hero."
"Roland met her, grandmamma-,"
Baid Emina, calmly. He told nm ; we
are nil cousins, 1 believe. She will be
sure tn invito me, or, if not, you will
bo able to got me an invitation. People always oxcrt themselves to get invitations for girls. It is like helping
young men on in business. We cannot go and mnke acquaintances for
ourselves in business ns young men go
nnd set up offices ; but wo must have
our chance, you know, as well. Of
course," aaid Emma, in her deliberate
wny, "it is for everybody's advantage
that we ahould have our chance us well
as the men."
"And what do you call your chance/"
said Captain Morgan. He planted
himself in front of tho fireplace, with
his legs wide apart, which, ns his wifo
well understood, meant war.
"My old man," Bhe said, "what do
you know about the talk of girls? They
havo ono way of thinking, nnd wo have
another. They aro young, and we are
old."
•' Hester   is younger than   sho is,
soid the enptain, "let Iter alone,   She
jb as ready to talk us there is tiny need
to be."
"My chance, gmndpnpa.siiid Emma,
with n slow, littlo laugh It is uot necessary, to explain ? A girl's chance is
in making friends. If one goes for i
governess one's family does not like it,
They wuuld rather you were your sis-
tor's head nurse, with nil tho trouble
nnd without any pay. Itolimcl has
taken ine now, nnd I do not require
to work for my living; but it ia not so
very cheerful with Roland tlmt I
should uot wish, if 1 could, to make n
change. We must nil think of ourselves, you know."
"My dour," said the old lady, in her
soft voice, "in ono way that is very
true."
"It is vory truo, I think, in every
wny. Ft might bo cheerful for mo if
Roland wero to spend his evening* at
homo, ns Tom Pinch in Dickens did
with his Bister. Hut then Rotund is
not a bit liko Tom Pinch, nnd I said
to him whon I came, 'You nro not to
change yonr lifo for ino,' Sn that some*
time, you know, I am iu the Ionise
alono all day, and then if ho i.« out tu
dinner, or if ho has nny evening engagement, 1 um iii-iiic nil tho night.
And if he were to marry, why thero
would be nu oud of mu altogether. So
you ace, grumlmnutma, wherever lam,
it is vory natural that 1 should wish
to havo my chanco."
"How old aro you?"  said tlio cap-
. tain, abruptly.
"I shall bo twenty-throe ut Christ*
inns," said Emma, raising her eyes to
his face,   Sho wns curious to  know
.why he naked, whether ho thought her
older or younger than hor age, whether
he thought it was she odd should sfill
be unmarried, "I wns kept very much
uut uf sight when I wns with Elinor,"
she snid, half npuloguticiilly.   Sho had
not had her "chance," nB she had nlwnya wished to havo.    She hnd   not
been very well treated, sho felt, in this
Hfo, the youngest of seven.    Sim hnd
been passed un from onu lo another,
of hor married sistui-B, to umbo herself
useful.   All of them hnd said thnt Emma must "ennio out," but nu one had
tnkon uny pleasure   about  it.     She
had to icramblo for n  dress, a vory
cheap  one, and to  coax   Elinor   to
taking her into some little local merrymaking, and Booponing, ns it wero, tho
gates of socioty,   As she could say tlmt
aho waa "out," Emma had kept thu
idea of having hor "chanco" of making
friends and getting Invitations nlways
before her.    But hur opportunities had
not beon groat, nnd Elinor Imd not devoted hersolf to  hor youngur sister.
Shu was sfill yrniug onough tu nmuau
fcerielf, nnd it hnd not occurred to her
te put ao unimpnrtant a person na Em
ma in the foreground, so that sho had
never boon allowed to liavo much of a
"chnnce." Emma hnd not much experience of tho world. Of the many
novels sho hnd read, and which were
hor guides to livo, a great many devoted themselves to tho history and description of all young ladies at
whoso entrance into each ballroom every man present foil, metaphorically, upon his knots. She waB acquainted with many evening parties in
fiction ut whicli tho fate of countless
young men nnd women wns decided.
Tho smallest dance would be represented thero aa bringing people together who wore nover more to lie sundered, Emma herself had not produced nny such sensation at the small
parties sho had hitherto gono to, but
sho felt that this glory must bo awaiting hor; nnd especially that in n new
placo liko thia Redborough, in some
waltz or other, among some unknown
assembly, she Bhould moot hor fnte.
This being tho case, it is not to bo
wondered nt tlmt sho should lose no
timo in announcing hor certainty of an
invitation to anything so likely tu conduce to such nu object ns Ellen Morridew's dnncing tens. Sho hnd como
down to Redborough prepared to be
cousin to ull the world. Roland, in*
dood, hnd taken pains to explain thnt
Catherino Vernon's cousins wore not
actually hor cousins, but she had
thought it bettor in many ways to ignore this, und to descend upon tho
now scoiio with tho most aininblo disposition to embrace, as a near relative,
every Vernon presented to her.
Among them all, whnt oould bo move
likely than thnt hor fnte Bhould bo
found ? Sho meant no harm to anybody. It would bo doing no harm,
certainly, if any young man foil in lovo
with her, to make him happy by marrying him, Sho felt most strongly the
supremo necessity of marrying, fur her
own part. Sho had no disguise with
horself on this subject, and with hor
grand pur cuts sho did not think it necessary to have any disguise. Everything wna involved in it. Roland' had
taken tlio responsibility of hor upon
himself and given her a homo, with
very littlo to do nnd enough to mako
hcrsolf sulh'cieiitly comfortable. Ei
mn hnd always boon brought upto consider everything from a strictly prcnti-
cal point of viow. She had been
taught to believe that she had no right
to anything; thut it was out of their
bounty and charity that hor brothers
and sisters, now ono, now {mother, afforded hor a temporary home. Aud
she was very comfortable with Roland
—but if he were to marry, what thon 1
Tho idea of the comfort of having a
homo of her own, a husband of her
own with a settled incomo, was to Emma, in prospect, tho crown ot all good
things, She would not havo boon
ashamed tn say so, if necessary; and it
was in balls and parties nnd picnics,
and social meetings generally, that a
young woman hnd her chance of suddenly obtaining, by looking protty, by
making herself agreeable, all thoso
tilings at iv stroke. Sho mndo up her
mind at onco that heaven and earth
must bo moved to get lior an invitation
to Sirs. Algernon Merridew's '/Vies
Batisante3. Sho would not take, she
Baid', any denial. She would soo all
tho Redborough peoplo there, among
whom there muat certainly be some individuals of the class upon wliich depended Emilia's fato. Aa sho sat unfolding as much of this as was needful,
with a calm confidence of being understood, her grandparents, with a sort of
stupefaction, listened and looked on,
Emina was knttting all the timo in the
German way, with a Blight, swift
movement of hor fingers, uud without
looking at her work. Sho spoko slowly,
with an air of such undoubted fact and
practical commonplace about hor that
thuso two old people, who each in their
several ways indulged in fancy and
sentiment, wero daunted and silenced.
Emma spoko in a sort of saintly simplicity, as not knowing that anything
beyond tlioso solid, primitive foundations, nuything like sentiment or fancy, was in tho world.
She was not handsome, liko her
brother, and yet thoro was something
remarkable ahout hor appearance whicli
somo peoplo admired. Her hair wna
dnrlt, hor features sufficiently good.
Tho strango thing in hor wns her eyes,
which woro very light in color, ao light
that sometimes thero seemed no color
ut nil in them. This was not beautiful,
but it was bizarre and unusual, nud nt
such Emina had her admirers. But it
was only in this particular, not in mind
or thought's, that thoro waa anything
out of tho way.
"Well," said tho old captain to his
wife, whou after having yawned softly
oyprJier work as a signal and preparation.for bed-going, Emma rose with n
smilo ut half-past too nnd kissed them
both, and asked if aho might havu her
candle. "I must not keep you out of
hed," she said, with that look of com'
placent consideration which, uotwith*
landing, was quito innocent, and referred to hur own circumscribed hori*
Bon, in which everything connected
with herself was well in tho foreground.
Mrs, Morgan did not meet hor husband's eye as alio had met it when Roland was tho visitor.
"She has not been well brought up,
poor thing," tho old lady said. "Sho
lias no one to caro for her ; nnd, Row-
ly, bIio is our own flesh and blood,"
"That's tho wonderful thing," tho
captain said. "Katie's child! My
dear, I give it up; thero seems uo reason and no soiisu in it. I cannot think
what tho Lord can mean."
"Oh, hush,Rowley ! Nothing, nothing that is not good."
"One would say that there must bo
j'lst a crowd of Binds ready tn put info
tho uow littlo bodior, uud that one
must slip down before tlio other that
ought to coino—liko that vilo cad, you
know, that slipped Into thu pool of Si-
loam before tho poor fellow that had
no servant could shuttle down," -
"And that was all tho hotter for the
poor fellow, as it turned out, Rowly,
for ho got Iub healing more sweetly out
of thu very hnnd. And, poor little
spirit, if it was not intended for this
body, I can't think it haa got vory
much by it's deceit/' Mrs. Morgan
said, with n little laugh.
But the captain did not laugh.
Tliere was consternation in liis soul,
"A girl," ho said, "with her eyes
open to all chances, looking out for a
husband nud seriously thinking that is
the right thing for lior to do—to como
from yon and mo !"
Tho old lady gavo him her hands
that he might help her out of her chair,
and, whon alio stood upright, tottering
a little—for sho waa not strong upon
hor legs—sho gavo him a little playful
tap with hor linger upon his old
cheek.
"You Aro just a high-flown old boii-
timontaliHt," alio aaid. "Thoro is no
harm in her. She is only proaetoyour
poetry -which I've always beon all our
lives, nnd you'vo Baid bo many n dny."
"Don't blaspheme, old woman, don't
hhiHohcmc," tho captain snid.
