DON'T WANT INTERFERENCE.
London. Jan. 21— It transpires that
Cardinal Manning lias recently written a
number of letters to the Pope with a view
of dissuading the Holy Fattier from interfering with the Irish Catholics in their
struggle with the English Government
for Home Rule for Ireland. Concerning
Ui«*u letters, the Chronicle, says they have
undoubtedly had some effect; but their
influence with the Vatican has fallen far
short of tbe Cardinals expectations, llie
best results he had been able to obtain,
the Chronicle, asserts, are the not very
positive afcsurancu that the Pope will not
publicly condemn the course of the
national party but will content himself
with giving private and detailed instruction to the Irish biBliupa as to
the future conduct of themselves, of the
clergy and laity. To what extent these
instructions will be carried out, remains
to be seen.
donnei-ly's drivel.
London, Jan. 24.— Eoctor Mason, professor of literature in the Edinburgh
University, and generally regarded as
the foremost authority in the kingdom in
a decision on literary questions, has
written his opinions of lgnat'.us Doi-
relly's Cryptogram, treating of the subject in tern's anything but complimentary
tp that gertleman. After going into the
mat ,er exhaustively to show the absurdity of Mr. Donnelly's claims, the Professor concludes by characterizing the
American's work as a "miserable drivel,
ending in a tissue of arithmetical conundrums that would bu hi-rsed and ridiculed
even in bedalm."
ANOTHER RAILROAD SOUI'MB.
Duluth, Minn. Jun. 34.—The Duluth
North Western and Winnipeg Railway
Company, with a capital of $35,000,000

be built this season, and from there to
tlie Manitoba border, and to a point on
tht* Red River between tbe Northern
Paoific railway at Fargo aud the Mani-
•'-toUr-'Railway at Crookstown. It will
make an eastern connection with the
Duluth South Shore aud Atlantic road.
TBE IRISH    QUESTION   COMES   8F.COND.
London, Jan. 24.—Mr. Henry Mat?
thews, the home secretary, iu . an address to his constituents this 'evening
said there had never been a cabinet
mure united than the present one.
Tho next session of parliament, he
said, would be devoted entirely to
business in which Ireland would take
a second place. The lor-il government
bill, to be introduced at the beginning
of the session, would be broad and
literal.
Mr. John Dillon, in a speech at
Cambridge this evening, declared that
the coercion policy of the government
was an abject failure. Hie only fear
was, not that the national spirit would
be quenched by coercion, but that the
lust chance of knitting the hearts of the
of the English and Irish people in the
bonds of sympathy would pass without
being seized.
Lord Dufferin, the ■*,'**■ u*rn<>r-general
of India, in reply to tlie tenants on his
Irish estates, who asked for a reduction of their renta by 40 per cent,
stated thut he leaves thn matter entirely in the haiw*-.- of hi* agent. The
maximum reduction allowed by the
agent is 10 per cent.

ulations to Win. O'Brien on his liber- ,
ation from Tullamore jail, to which, it -
ib understood, the other metnbars of
the cabinet are taking exception.
Every member of the Dominion cabinet isaworn as a minuter of the crown,
and Costigan is the representative in
the cabinet uf the Irish element of the
Dominion and by no means in sympathy with the policy adopted by the
British government toward Ireland.

Ottawa, Jan. 26.—The Dominion
government has refused to certify ' or
bond Canadian grain shipped from th*
Northwest territories through tbe U.S.
by the Northern. Pacific and other
American lines for re-entry into 'Can*
ada,at Windsor, Ont. This announce- '
ment is creating intense excitement
throughout Manitoba and the Northwest. The government maintains that
the Canadian Pacific was constructed '"'
at a great cost through the Western
province, to facilitate people in the
northwest securing direct communication with the outside world, and that
the American roads cannot be allowed,
if possible, to come, into competition
with the C.P.R., which might Under
other circumstances prevent American
cars coming into Manitoba at the
junction with the Northern Paoific.

The result of the contest in Victoria has been a genuine surprise to
a large number of persons in this
city. Peoplo sometimes succeed in
persuading themselves thut their
own peculiar wishes are a reliable
index of coming ovents. A groat
many people, therefore, had come to
the conclusion that Mr. Duck would
be defeated in Victoria, and that the
event would mark the beginning of
the end. It is no secret that a few
hard-headed opponents of the present government have been cherishing the confident belief that a change
is not far off. Of these persons tho
Guardian is the organ and mouthpiece. A few days ago it stated that
there wero fourteen members of tho
house ready to vote out tho government at tho very first opportunity.
Quite possibly Mr. Williams was
counted as one of the fourteen—but
chickens are sometimes counted before they have been hatched. Mr.
Duck's election was a surprise; but
his large majority must have been
much more than a surprise. It
shows that the government stands
firm in the confidence of the people,
and that the calculations of the op
position have been sadly out of har-
ijiony with facts. It has been more
than once intimated that the present government is the most corrupt
that ever existed. If that statement
is founded on fact, the electors who
yesterday returned a government
supporter in Victoria must themselves be very guilty, for their action
is a distinct endorsement of the
government policy. The danger to
the public administration seems to
lie not so much in its weakness as
in its strength. A powerful and
capable opposition is very important, but the present opposition seems
to be singularly wanting both in
numbers and ability. We should
be glad to see it gain in both.
In consequence of the slowness of
the mails lately, full particulars of
the trial of the Quwdian libel case
did not reach this city until yesterday. The only witnesses examined
were Mr. P. M. Irving, deputy attorney-general, Mr. M. W. T. Drake,
Q.O., and Hon. John Hobson.
Many of our readers will remember
that the libel arose out of a case
which came before the courts at
Victoria, in which a brother of one
of the members was charged with a
serious crime. The deputy attorney-
general was crown prosecutor in the
case, and it seems that the chief
justice gave utterance to some very
strong language respecting tho preparation of some papers which he
wished to put in as evidence. During the progress of the trinl Hon.
Mr. Bobson came to the court house
for the purpose of seeing Mr. Irving.
The Times stated that the chief
justice had very severely censured
the crown prosecutor in connection
with the papers mentioned, and insinuated that Hon. Mr. Robson's
presence at court was for the purpose of influencing the case. For
this an action was entered against
the Times; but afterwards it published a retraction and apology, and
the action was withdrawn. The
Gvjairdian made some very severe
comments on the case, and when the
apology appeared in the Times the
Guardian intimated that it was not
a bona fide apology, but had been
procured by Hon. Mr. Robson so as to
save himself from exposure. In
evidence it came oat, that the re
marks of the chief justice were not
directed against Mr. Irving at all,
but against the person who had prepared certain papers in connection
with the case when it was before the
police court; and it also canre out
that so far from Hon. Mr. Robson
coming to court to exert an improper influence he merely came to
consult Mr. Irving on a totally
different matter; that he remained
only about five minntes, and did not
have an opportunity of speaking
with Mr. Irving at all; and that Mr.
Irving did not know he was there.
The Guardian published certain
comments on the case as reported in
the Times, in whioh very uncomplimentary reflections were made on
the provincial secretary, it being intimated tbat he ought to be iu the
chaingang. When the Times apology appeared, the Guardian made
matters worse by its charge that the
apology had been procured by improper means, in his evidence Hon.
Mr. Robson stated that it was this
lut reference to the case that had
led him to put the matter into
court, as he and his friends felt that
it ought not to be passed over in
silence. There were no witnesses
called for the Guardian, and the defence eet up was that the articles
were fair comments upon the plaintiff in his political character, and
that plaintiff had, when publishing
k newspaper himself, indulged in
similar attacks upon the character
of defendant. In his charge to the
Jury Mr. Justice Crease said that
although in cases of libel the jury
had to be judges both of the law and
the facta, he would say in his opinion the words used by defendant
were undoubtedly libelous, and there
wai evidence of a malicious motive
whioh prompted it. In view of the
evidence there seemed to be no
course open to the jury but to find
■ vetdiot for the plaintiff, which was
done.

A story of Ihe rising generation:
In oue oi tlie a murban towns there is
a young lady—quite a young Jady she is.
too—whose somewhat boyish.aspect and
innocenty masculine tastes have won for
her the sobriquet of Tommy. Not long
ago she gave a little party io the children
ot .the neighborhood, and iu-pivjiaring
forthe event her mother,- in order to get
an idea ofthe sort of young people her
daughter would like to have attend, .told
her to prepare a list of those she wished
to invite. Tommy went to work with
/.est and in a short time.finished a pretty
loir.' list
"ThoiMj nrnmma," said she, with an air
of enm'Wsi veneris, "there's every single
.one lluii I wiiiitro come."
Her inrrtrior took the document and
ron.t it wilh mi astonishment which increased as her oyos anproach.rd the end
of trio list. Tommy bad only one girl's
na no on the whole list.
"Wiry, Tommy," her mother ex-
clairnorl, "do you want none Out boys to
coin'- tn your puny? What are you
thinUngbl?"   ■
"Well, inauima," said Tommy, "you
know girls aren'l iiny fun!"
"Hut would yonr boys have any fun il

"Werm't nny sir's? Why, tlcre'll be

The iiiotlioi'. bnwever, insisted upon
the nomination of a full quotrl of girls;
but iu order to get it she had to make inquiries herself. Tommy's information
.was deficient.

tracts.
Its statements to the publlo can bo reality understood, Us cash stalcnieut show-
Ink every Item oMncome and bow exiicn-
ded.
Its position 1hascertained ann nail v from
a d.'lnlled valuation in which overy Hem

Its progress has been unexampled in
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-for/eltnide after two vem*--
existence.
Its protlts are distributed upon au equitable basis. Tbe profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give

The Pall Mull liHK'-ite Correspondent.
Mr. Henry Norman, who is on a
tour round the world as special correspondent of the Pall Mall Gazette,
pasBed through Vancouver a few days
ago on his way to Japan and China.
Un Monday Mayor Dickinson sent him
a teh-grant inviting him to visit thia
city before tearing. A reply was received last iiight hi which Mr, Norman expresses res ret at his inability to
accept the itn itntion. na he proposes
sailing on the Parthia. The mayor forwarded to him a lithographic representation ot Westminster, together with
a number of newspaper articles relating to the business and progress of the
royal city, from which Mr. Norman

Burned toy un Explosion.
Fred. Strickland, un employee of
the Royal City Planing Mills, had a
very narrow iscape from losing his
eyesight this morning. He was engaged in melting a lur^e lndlo full of
babbit metal and bad brought it to a
cherry red beut whon, it is supposed,
a drop of water from the floor above
fell into the ladle causing un explosion. The molten metal wns blown
in every direction and a large quantity
struck Strickland across the eyes and
forehead, nnd set there. As quick aB
lightning he tore the metal from his
eyes and thus pro bo My saved his sight,
but the portion which a truck un the
forehead inflicted a very serious and
painful burn the scar from which he
will carry fur life, Dr, Cooper applied the necessary salves and dressed
the burn, and except for the pain Mr.
Strickland iB not much the worse of
the accident.
The Choral Union Concert.
The lirst concert given this Benson
by the Choral Union took place last
night in Herring's Opera House, Tho
night was inclined to be unpleasant,
but as a little inclement weather docs
not intimidatu Westminster peoplo the
opera house was well tilted with one of
the moat select audience ever gathered
together in the oity. The first part of
the programme consisted of Handel's
Oratorio, "The Messiah." The solos
were BUng by MrB, Sillitoe, Miss Sutherland, Miss DeBeck and Messrs, H.L.
DeBeck and IVIIy. The chorines
were sung with much power and precision and wero excellently rendered,
the voices showing t\mt great care bud
been observed i-i the itaining, and the
whole reflected credit on the tutorship
of the conductur. In the second part,
Macfarren'B " May-D»y," Mrs. Sillitoe
sang the solo in a meat charming manner, her excellent voice and oxpression
doing full juati'-u to the composer's intentions. The (jliorux in this piece was
probably the best rendered of the evening, and the wulls of the house fairly
rang to the strains of this grand song.
His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe conducted
the concert, nnd its sttoceaa is groatly
due to his individual efforts. Miss
Hill, who accompanied the singers on
the piano, performed hor arduous task
with a grace and precision highly Id be
commended, and the playing in itself
was indeed a treat. The saine can he
said of Mr. Morey, who accompanied
on the organ. We understand the
Choral Union intend repenting this
conceit in Vancouver; if bo, the people
of the terminal city have a treat to
look forward to.
A Great Sufferer.—That person who is afflicted with rheumatism
is a great sufferer and greatly to be
pitied if they cannot procure Hag-
yard's Yellow Oil. This remedy is a
certain cure, not only for rheumatism
but for all external aches and internal
pains.
At a meeting of the San Francisco
chamber of commerce last week.
Charles B. Allen submitted a minority
report, in which he hold that the falling off of trade with British Columbia
wns not due to the Dominion tariff. He
believed the free admission of lumber
and coal would not tend to reduce, the
cost of those articles, and argued that
the relief should come from the development of Calif irniuiimineBaiid timber interests. The removal of tho tariff would
retard these industries nnd prevent the
rapid settlement of the Northwest
Territory. A communication was received from several individuals and
firms protesting against any reciprocity
troaty with Canada at the presont
time, as inopportune and unwise, as
under this treaty the balance of trade
would be vory largely in favor of
British Columbia. The prices of
neither lumber nor ooal would in the
long run be affected by auch a treaty.
In the belief of the signers of the communication, such a treaty would transfer to British Columbia a large part of
tho immense lumbering interests now
established on Puget Sound, Gray'a
Harbor nnd tho Columbia River.
Again, with cheap English iron tnd low-
priced labor, manufactories would
spring up in British Columbia, and
machinery of all kinds would be purchased for Oregon nnd Washington
Territory at leaat., in that country instead of in San Francisco. The communication was signed by alarge number of prominent mercantile houses
and many business men.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Muple Hldge Mailers.
EuiToii Columbian:—Being in Vnnoouvor the other day, I happened to
take up one of your papers in a hotel,
and wns glad to seo that in your leading article you had given publicity to
a complaint of wnnt of roads againatthe
municipal council of the township of
Muple Ridge. I can assure you, sir,
that tlie complaint is woll-founded;
and every district in the municipality
except one is in the same position and
has the B.ini'! complaint to make. Thut
part called the town of Hammond
* * * is fairly well provided
with roads, but nowhere else. The
only roadrt the people possess nre roads
they hnvo made for themselves. Now,
Mr. Editor, it is a notorious fact that
the provincial government haa paid to
thia municipality $2,700 for the purpose of making roads and improving
the township in which no improvement at nil has beeu mnde that should
cost over §500. * * * —Yours,
etc., Wm. Johnson,
Hammond, Jan. 21,1888.
[We have omitted some portions of
our correspondent's letter which seem

THB WELLINGTON  DISASTER.
Wellington, Jan. 25.—At 9 o'olock
to-night, after the change of the shift,
18 white men and 22 Chinese have
beeh taken out of the pit, while 7 more
bodies have been taken to the bottom
cf the shaft. There are yet 13 white
men and 19 Chinese in the mine,
James Morrison was omitted iu Inst
report, making the total of white nights
men who perished in the oust level 31,
and of Chinese 41.
The following are the names of the
white men taken out: Robert Williams, K. Greenwell, Alexander Rose,
D. McDonald, John Stuart, John Ness,
John Marshall, John Wall, nil unmarried; John Jones has a wife aud
two children; John Balngna, a wife;
Wm, Harn, a wife; Jacob Klenn, a
wife; Wm. \Vilkes,awifeandfourohild-
ren; Frank McCoy, is mnri-'d. Veleria
and two Belgians complete the number. The only present survivor from
the east slope is a Chinaman, who is
burned and injured almost beyond recovery. The bodies of the white miners are being washed and prepared for
burial. Those belonging to the Masonic, Odd Fellows, and other societies, have been taken charge of by
their brethern, while sevoral others
have been taken to their late homes.
Some of the funerals will take place tomorrow. All the collieries of the Vancouver Coal Company and the Wellington collieries have beeu closed.
Since the accident the Railway Company have been running trains night
and day between Nanaimo nnd Wellington for the conveyance of volunteers
to and from the various shifts.
RECOVERING THE ROIHES.
WeLlinoton, Jan. 25.—The exploring party worked all Tuesday night
and penetrated into the east slope and
located the bodies of a numbor of
whites and Chinese. It was not until
about two o'clock this afternoon that
the work of bringing the bodies to the
surface was begun, aud in a little over
an hour's time the bodies of 7 while
men and 8 Chinese had been raised to
the surface. The bodies were ull
mangled aud blackened beyond recognition, and the only means of knowing
the Unfortunate victim's names were
the stalls and points at which, they
wero found. The bodies were carefully
wrapped in blankets and tied so as to
screen them from head to foot, and as
one reached the surface it was placod
on a stretcher and two men carried
this to sleighs in waiting, which conveyed them to where they were laid
out for reclamation or for burial.
Every possible assistance was rendered
by Mr. Dunsmuir, who was present on
the ground, iu order thnt the work of
recovery might be hastened, while his
officials did all tha. -is in their power
to assist. There were not more than
than 100 mon and no women around
the shaft during the afternoon, and
the melancholy task proceeded with
regularity and quiet. The dispatch
sent at midnight on Tuesday with respect to the number in the mine is
about correct. Every individual in
the east slope where the explosion occurred was killed, even Robert Williams, the engineer at the top of the
slope, about 50 yards from the foot of
the shaft. The explosion did not penetrate into the weBt slope, further than
to make a severe concussion which affected somo severely, but the after-
dump rushed in. However, by the
presence of inind exhibited immediately in repairing the fan, the air current was restored and many lives were
saved. This is attested by the recovery of a large number who were
prostrated by the afterdamp, but who
subsequently recovered consciousness
and came to the foot of the shaft. The
inquest will be held by Dr. Walkem.
Great praise is due to Mr. John Bry-
den.the manager, and his efficient staff.
Mr. Robins, the auperinteudant of the
Vancouver Coal company, kindly assisted by sending an effective staff to
assist the rescuing party. The admirable arrangements at the shaft
could not fail to be noticed, for they
are carried out like cloc'i work. There
was no excitement, and each man attended to bis worn, hiding, for the
time being, his Borrow. The Hon.
Mr Dunsmuir arrived at noon on
Tuesday, aud was present at the shaft
counselling and encouraging all to
hope for the best. He was on duty till
5 this morning, nnd again oarly in the
day after a few hours rest. He will remain on duty all to-night, llosays he
is proud of the noble men that are in
his employ. They have proved themselves good and truo iu the hour of
need. The resistless force nf the explosion is,proved by the manner in
which the eight inch pipes wore snapped in Iwo. Heavy timbers were reduced to splinters, while one of the
iron cu»es was blown completely out of
the shaft. A Belgian miner wns stripped of every vestige of clothing, while
the mutilation of the bodies proves
that the terrible force played with iho
bodies as though they were feathcis.
Mr. K, C. Winlow, Toronto, writes:
"Northrop and Lyman's Vegetable Discovery is a valuable medicine to all wlu.
are troubled with indigestion. I tried a
bottle of it after suffering for eome ten
years, and the results are certainly beyond my expectations. It assists digestion wonderfully. I digest my food
with no apparent effort, and am now
entirely free from that sensation, which
every dyspeptic well knowa,of unplensaut
fullness utter each meal.
