(Jurrent events and Opinions.
The report of the commissioner
of the Northwest mounted police
shows that the illicit selling of
liquor is on the increase in the territories, and that the Indians obtain
liquor with comparative ease, notwithstanding the heavy penalties
imposed. No better results can bo
obtained from the kind of prohibition which has been established in
the Northwest, By the present
system, intoxicating drinks in large
quantities are every year imported
into the territories, and the police,
in putting down the traffic, are ever
met with the defence that the liquor
in course of consumption was under
sanction of the government. Permits have been much too easily
obtained.*— Hamilton Times.
Britain is being more rapidly and
noiselessly revolutionized as a consequence of the Franchise extension
thnn most Canadian observers fully
recognize ; and for the first time in
her history the demands of commerce and labor are becoming supreme. The bondholders have virtually dictated the foreign policy of
Britain in the past, but the manufacturer and laborer will have a
word or two to say upon that matter in the future, The circumstance
that a proposal to take from the
government the right to deolare
war without consulting parliament
was only defeated by the narrowest
of majorities, shows the temper of
the new democracy. Another change
demanded, and one which is more
revolutionary than appenrs upon its
face, is thnt tho foreign consuls of
Britain shall in future have more
commercial experience than in the
past. This means that these important posts are no longer to be
largely bestowed upon impecunious
younger sons of the aristocracy, who
minus tho slightest particle of commercial training receive these posts
iis a convenient manner of pensioning them upon the publio purse. A
change such as this would mean that
tho land-owning and aristocratic
families liad entirely lost their grip
upon the public patronage.—Ottawa
Free Press.
There is undeniably considerable
dissatisfaction abroad, at the enormous cost of the governor-generalship of Canada, the governor-general's department; his personal and
departmental travelling expenses;
and the maintenance and repairing
of Kideau Hall. This dissatisfaction is of course not personal to
the present incumbent of that high
office, because he has been one of
the least extravagant of the whole
succession; but it bears against the
general cost and maintenance of the
ofllce since confederation. That
feeling of discontent is very rife
among the younger class of electors,
and sooner or later the whole question of maintaining the office of
governor-general, and the present
mode of filling it, will be a live
topic for discussion iu parliament
The younger class of electors fail
to see why the office of governor-
general for Canada should cost five
millions of people a sum as large as
that which the presidency of the
United States—an active executive
office—costs sixty millions of people. Here iu Ottawa, where whatever advantages attached to the
office of governor-general may exist
are locally appreciated, for obvious
reasons this feeling of dissatisfaction naturally finds little public
manifestation; but elsewhere among
the independent eleetors the growing discontent is becoming outspoken. It is not surprising therefore, that Mr. McCraney has given
notice of a series of motions covering this whole matter; and it will
also not bo surprising if these motions provoke a discussion in whioh
ii little more radical sentiment respecting the chief executive office of
our country than has hitherto found
parliamentary expression, is uttered.

VOLUME 19
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0„ WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1886.
NUMBER 30
Ab many British Liberals voted
with tht government in the Riel
division as voted with the leader of
the Liberal opposition. No morn
need bo said. To pretend that Mr.
Blake fell into a trap is idle: he
had most deliberately considered
the question, and had laid out the
right line to be taken upon it, in
his London speech, with the greatest clearness und foroe. For Mr.
Blake, standing on anything like
tenable ground, the minister of justice would be no match; but he won
an easy victory over Mr. Blake
standing on such ground as the
cause of Riol. Tho plea of impunity for political crime ought to be
denounced as often as it is put forward. It would place society at
tho mercy of overy scoundrel who
preferred agitation to honest work,
and at a time when the number of
such scoundrels is daily on the in*
crease. The crimes of Robespierre
and Carrier were political.^. The
Phoenix Park murders wer« political. Because a crime is political it
by no means follows that it is not
selfish. It was to make himself
emperor that Louis Napoleon massacred thousands of innocent citizens
and deported Other thousands to
Cayenne. Riel would have person,
ally profited on the largest scale by
the success of his rebellion, end he
clearly marked the mercenary
character of his enterprise by showing himself ready to sell out' He
had actually estopped himself and
his defenders from this plea byhis
own exeoution of Scott for offering
political resistance to . his usurpation. Mr. Blake is tlie prince of
Canadian advocates, but in this east
he had a bad brief, and a lamentable catastrophe was the result.
Unluckily the country suffers as
well as the: party leader ■ and the
party. 'This fiasco will take all the
life out of the much-needed inquiry
into the causes of the rebellion.
We come back to the same point.
The lender of the opposition has no
polioy to oppose to the policy of the
government.—Tlie Week,

M. COOPER, B. A..JI.D.,
PHYSICIAN A BURGEON.
TheB. C. contingent are moving
for representation both for their
own province and for Manitoba.
That is to say, Mr. Shakespeare
asks the government whether it is
their intention to give such reprc
sontation to B. 0.; and Senatu
Mclnnes' is to move a resolution
declaring its expediency in both
provinces. This is a matter in
whioh it is easier to propound a
strong theory than to point out the
way of satisfactorily applying it.
A grent many people think that
this representation in the cabinet
by provinces has a mischievous tendency to hamper and retard the
consolidation of Canada, and that
not only must the government seek
strength where that can* be found
but that it is better for the coun*
try that they should doso. The
years of mismanagement in the
Northwest are oited as an example
to the contrary, but it is not ex.
nctly a proof. Because Sir John
was too much occupied with other
things, and beoause Sir David Macpherson wus for some reason or
another unfit to occupy the department of minister of interior, it does
not follow that some other eastern
man would have allowed tlie allium
in the Northwest to get into the
state they did. The general impression here is, that under the present
minister the common principles of
justice and business will be allowed
to prevail. The knowing ones here,
that is those who without being of
the Queen's privy council appear to
be in the premier's privy council,
say that the present representation
in parliament of these two provinces precludes the realization of the
wish to which I refer. If the
respectability and natural ability of
British Columbia members are urged,
though you cannot he gainsaid, you
will hear that they are not the stuff
of which cabinets are made, Urging the claims and unquestionable
fitness of Senator Macdonald one
is answered that he is in the senate
and that the drift of public opinion
is against burying the cabinet until
the constitution of the second dumber has been remodelled. Of Manitoba they ask: Who is available I
Mr. Royal does not represent the
English, who are nearly 15 to 1 of
tho French, Mr. Watson is a Liberal, Captain Scott is understood to
be a candidate for government employment, Mr. Sutherland is too
busy Ubout tho Hudson* Bay railway to trouble himself with a department, and Mr. Ross's continuance in Manitoba is not supposed to
be definitely settled. It is thought
that ho mny succumb to the oharms
of British Columbia, a province
with whose merits people generally
are very imperfectly acquainted.—
Ottawa cor. Montreal/Mr/.   ,
*   Ohinese Destitution.
A week ago Thursday, a Chinaman
at Wellington, known to be in destitute circumstances, was mined by his
countrymen and a search instituted.
After seferal days the Chinaman was
found suspended by his shoe lace from
the limb of a tree. 1 When found the
body wu still and had keen dead for
sometime. From the manner in which
the shoe string had been placed on the
limb, it must have either been a very
determined case of suicide or thb body
was put there by some other periun to
hide a previous crime. It is pretty
generally known that considerable destitution exists among the Chinese in
this province, and this no doubt is a
determined case of suicide through
starvation.—"Vnnmino free frets.

The Railway Situation.
Since the smoke lias begun to
dear awajj., it becomes perfectly
plnin that the course which ought
to have been taken with respect to
the brunch railway hitch was to
bring the circumstances beforo thc
government first and ask that the
original agreement he carried out.
If this had been done, it is probable
that matters would have been adjusted in a day, and the way would
havo been left open for immediate
construction. This course •*
suggested at first; but less wise
suggestions prevailed, and it is only
after the lupse of a week of excitement that the true position of
affairs comes to be seen. We are
glad to know, however, that matters have been again so far adjusted
that there is no room to doubt the
certainty of the construction of the
branch. The enterprise of the citizens themselves has furnished a
sufficient guarantee to satisfy any
company. Tho sum of $+6,600
has been guaranteed, over and above
thc $37,500 already deposited in
the bank, so that the city can, if
necessary, place the sum of §84,000
in the hands of the syndicate for
tbe construction of the railway.
The right of way has been nearly
all arranged for, and matters have
so far advanced that the engineers
began work yosterday morning on
the water front. In the mean time
application will be mnde to the government, through the proper channel, for the $37,500 promised in aid
of the branch, and we have not the
least doubt but the application will
be successful. It is the opinion of
all whose opinion is worth having
that the house had no right to insert the Ohinese clause in the agreement, and the insertion of it is,
therefore, valueless. If this opinion be correct, there may be nothing to prevent the government from
paying over the sum unconditionally
ti? soon as the agreement has been
complied with by the syndicate and
the city. Indeed, this may be
taken as the meaning of the telegrams received from the Hon. Mr.
Smithe, which some of the speaker** at the Friday night meeting declared meant nothing. Kow that
the excitement has passed away wc
may consider calmly some of the
circumstances which brought about
the: unfortunate hitch. It seems to
have anorded t'o some persons always hostile to the government an
opportunity to make some political
capital. These persons asserted,
contrary to all the evidence, that
tho insertion of this Chinese clause
was a deliberately concocted scheme
of certain members of the government to prevent the branch railway
being built until after the extension
had Wau completed to Vancouver.
We believe no one now holds that
opinion. It is the testimony of all
who know anything about the circumstances that the resolution was
simply the result of a misapprehension. Mr. Speaker Mara says that
when the Ohinese clause was proposed by Mr. Beaven, Mr. Orr immediately declared that it was the
wish of the people to have such a
clause inserted; that the city coun
cit of Now Westminster had inserted a similar clause in the agree
ment when it put up its $37,500,
and that lie had documents in his
pockot which would hear out his
position in this matter. Now, in
the face of such a statement, in a
house which has distinctly pledged
itself to offer every legitimate opposition to Chinese, nothing was more
natural than to do what iu fuet was
done. In one sense the houso was
excusable. It accepted Mr. Orr's
statement, apparently, without question; but it ought to have considered that its aotion was an interference with an already completed
agreement, which required the
greatest caution and the formal consent of tho parties thereto. This
. point does not seem to have occurred
to any pel-son in the house. All
the Viotoria papers have published
reports of the agitation in this city,
and editorial comments. The re
ports are fairly accurate, but exaggerated: the editorial comments are
nil misleading. The Times first
my* the insertion of the Ohinese
clause was the work of the opposi
tion, who 'fcpmjielled them (the
gowfh'ment) to yield/and they did
so, but vwy -reluctantly." Finding
tUt m dW :not j^tlj ;*#>
purpose it afterwards asserted that
although the prop**** oame irom
Mr. BeaVeii, "Hon. Mr. Smithe
adopted  the  r*a6lutioff ofte-^ by
Mr. favMM^QW*$$:\\ft*
paned. Of courw tbe limn looki
chiefly to the pqtit(c»l effect of, it»
utterances,.: The Standard, $W*|
the whole responsibility on the government and the representatives of
this city and district of New Westminstor. None of it, of course,
attaches to its own party leader
who moved the mischievous resolution ! The Post says the proceedings in this city at one time threatened to end in a riot! Tliere was
never such a thought entertained
in the city. It then proceeds to
read the people of this city a lecture upon selfishness and declares
that they aro willing to sacrifice thc
whole country to the Ohinese so
long as they secure the railway.
Thc Post does not understand what
it is talking about. The comments
of the Colonist ure inconsistent
with theinselves, and do not fairly
represent the facts. It snys the
people of this city ought to have
known better than to have allowed
themselves to he disturbed over tho
Ohinese clause, for they might havo
known well enough that the legislature had exceeded its powers. But
in the same breath it mentions that
in consequence of this clause'the
syndicate refused to undertake the
construction of the -branch! It is
generally supposed that the syndicate is composed of shrewd business
men, and that they usually act under the best legajdulvico. If it wns
all right for the syndicate to fly ofl'
the handle and throw our branch
line overboard in consequence of
the action of the house, there was
surely cause for the people Qf: this
city to become alarmed and enquire
what effect the obnoxious clause
might have upon themselves. The
Colonist then proceeds to show
that the parties responsible for the
whole muddle are the New Westminster town council!" Tliis; is
precisely where our cotemporary
puts his foot in it. For the pust
year the city council has striven
with unfaltering zeal to accomplish
this one great work, the connecting
of this city with the railway. To
this end it obtained permission to
sell the public squares, and to issue
debentures for a loan of $38,000.
Week after week it lias pushed forward steadily against difficulties
which sometimes seemed almost insuperable, until a final adjustment
had been reached and the work of
actual construction was just about
to begin. At this point the
matter fell through because of the
Chinese clause, antl for this the
council wus no more responsible
than the Colqnist, It is not truo
that the council authorized Mr. On-
or any other person to speak on
this question. Mr, Orr sent a letter
tc the council asking it to use its
influence with the company to have
Ohinese excluded from the work of
constructing the branch.' The council replied that it would lay the
matter before Mr. Abbott. This
wis dono, but Mr. Abbott positively
declined to yield, stating that Mr.
Van Horne held very strong opinions on this subject and would not
listen to any restriction. This ended thc matter. Mr. Orr had no
reply from the council, and it is impossible to reconcile his statements
in the house with what actually
transpired. It is not true thr.t any
Ohinese restriction clause was inserted in the city bonus, or that the
council gave Mr. Orr any kind of
authority to bring the matter before the house. Tlie Colonist pro
ceeds upon false premises, therefore, and comes to a conclusion
equally false. Upon Mr. Orr, therefore, rests the chief responsibility
for the muddle, for his misrepresentations of tho facts, whether wilful or through ignorance, led the
house to suppose it was simply
carrying out the;: wishes of the
peoplo of this city. At the
same time the legislature ought to
have known Utter'Mian" to interfere in a completed agreement. So
fur as tlie city council is concerned,
we are at a loss to see how it can
be held responsible in the least for
the action of. the horse. The Colonist had belter'read its article over
and then attempt to make it consistent. In conclusion we hnve to
say that, in our opinion, the people
of this city had just ground to be
alarmed nnd disgusted at the turn
affairs had taken ' Any pftrson who
has had the opportunity of knowing
all the steps that Imve lieen taken
to bring the matter to a final isspt
will admit that the situation ml
extremely discouraging. In less
timn two months the water will be
bo high that tho work of construe
tion along the city front cannot be
e&rrtnf on without fflftftj imefrnp-j
tions, and low water does not return until the end of July. If
work on the water front is not immediately undertaken, therefore, tho
branch line cannot possibly be fin
ished until after the Vancouver ox-
tension has been completed. Tlio
people of tdh oity Mlieve^ttond
very important to them that the
branch should be ready for traffic
ai'MKHi u the extension, and thoy
ought to be the beet judges of their
own •{Un.*   Although firmly he*
lieving in the expediency of discouraging the employment of Chinese, they prefer to consent to tlieir
employment in this caso rather than
run the risk of losing thc railway
or postponing its construction indefinitely.'

Holy Trinity Bell Toweu.—The
laying of the corner stone of the new
bell tower for Holy Trinity Church
took place as announced on Saturday
afternoon. There were a large number pf citizens present to witness the
interesting ceremony, whioh waa conducted by the Right Rev Bishop of
New Westminster, supported by the
Venerable Archdeacon Woods and
Ret Mr. Bell. After appropriate
religious exercises the- corner itone
was laid and pronounced perfect by
Mrs. J, A. R. Homer and Mrs, Dickinson, the former trying it with a ail
ver square, and the latter tapping it
with a silver - trowel. These ladies
were escorted by Capt. Bolo of the
artillery and Capt. Peele of the rifles,
who appeared, in full military uniform.
The. trowel arid squire had engraved
on them the words: "In remembrance
of the laying of the corner stone of
Holy Trinity bell tower, Apr. 10:1880."
When tbe ceremonies had been concluded the Ven. Archdeacon addressed
a few appropriate words to those present. He hoped this would not be regarded merely as an official aot but an
act of. consecration of this new addition of the church to Almighty God.
He congratulated the people of New
Westminster upon the commencement
of a work whioh would bs an ornament not only to the church but the
oity. Tbis should not be looked upon
as a work merely in connection with
the Church of England, but as something in which every citizen should
feel an interest. He wished to thank
all those whose generosity had enabled
tho committee to make such progress
in the enterprise, snd especially the
two ladies who had just taken part in
the laying of the stone, far to them
was due in a very great measure the
credit of what had been done. A collodion plate waa loft on the platform,
and in it the spectators deposited
their voluntary offerings whioh amounted to $39. The tower, which is now
in course of construction, is to be 80
feet high, base being 21 feet square.
The first 27 feet will bo of stone, and
tbe walls at the base are being built
3 feet 6 ins. thick. The contractors
for the stnne-work are Messrs. Mortimer & Hamilton, and Mr. Mennie
doos the wood-work. It may not be
known to all our readers that thia
tower is to support a fine chime of 8
bells, the gift of Lady Burdette Coutts*
Bartlett, who presented them to the
church about 25 years ago. Old residents who remember these bells when
they pealed out their chimes will bo
gratified to know that the prospect of
their being again brought into use is
excellent. The total cost of tho
tower and suspending the bells is estimated at 4)7,000, ahd the committee
has on hand, we believe, about $4,000.
No doubt the balance will be forthcoming. The stone-work will be com
pleted early iri May.

■ Correspondence or the Colnmbliui
Mount Lehman, Apr. 12.—We have
been having terribly broken weather
for some time, but in spite of the lato
spring a good deal, of seeding has been
done already,. The prairies in this
aeotion present a splendid sppeersnee.
A great many think, however, that
theae beautiful prairies will look like
lakes when the high water comes, for
it is believed the waiter will be unusually high this year. The settlers aro
glad to see by the estimates that thia
distriot has again got a very good sum
for public improvements. It is to be
hoped: Lehman's may get ita full share
of this money, for it is doubtful if there
is another settlement where improvements are more urgently needed-than
here. We. are very badly in need of
roads., Somo of the settlers deserve
great praise for the energetic way in
which they have been malting roads
for themselves so si to gain access to
their own places without asking for
governmont assistance. It is to be
hoped thev may receive consideration
so that - the more difficult .places
at least may be put into passable.

MASS MEETIW ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
On Friday night the Drill Shed was
filled by citizens anxious to learn the
progress of events in connection with
the branch railway. The mayor took
the chair at about half-past 8 o'clock,
and Mr. T. J. Trapp was appointed
secretary. The mayor read the following telegram from Victoria:
Clause thirteen of the agreement requires the corporation to provide $.17,-
500, right of way and depot grounds.
When that has all been done and the
government officially advised thereof,
the company will be entitled to ask the
govemment to carry out its part of the
agreement under said clause.
Wu. Smithe,
Mr. Bole said the telegram simply
meant nothing except that wo neod
look for no assistance from the government. We muat ourselves provide
the bonus.
Mr. McCrea snid there must be some
misunderstanding in this matter. He
would like to know what communtca
tion had passed between the city counoil and Mr. Orr on the Chinese question.
The mayor replied that Mr, Orr had
sent a letter to tho counoil asking it tu
use its influence to prevent the employment of Chinese on the branch line.
A reply to this had been aent atating
that the matter would be laid before
Mr. Abbott. Thia waa done, but
when Mr. Abbott, utterly refused to
entertain such a proposal it waa dropped and no further proceedings were
taken in that direction. If Mr. Orr
made the statement attributed to him
in the house, he had simply told a lie,
Mr. McCrea said that from his own
personal knowledge he oould say that
the government was most anxious to
do everything in. its power to help na.
(Here a part of the audience to whom
this statement appeared obnoxious be*
Sn shouting and stamping and forced
r. McCrea to resume hia seat).
After a few remarks from Doo. Chisholm in which he expressed a doubt
concerning the government's good intentions, Mr. Bole dictated the following telegram to Hon. Mr. Smithe,
which the mayor was instructed to
send:
Your telegram read at public meeting
to-night. Contents deemed unsatisfactory and evasive. We want a distinct
aiswer from the government to this question; Upon the corporation fulfilling all
the obligations placed upon them by
clause 13, are the government prepared,
without further delay, to pay over or
guarantee to the C. P. R, Co. the sum of
137,600 without any restrictions as to
the employment of Chinese labor* Unless a. definite answer is received to this
telegram we must conclude that the government are not prepared to carry out
their part of the agreement.
R. Dickinson.
Mr. Edmonda said he supposed from
Hon. Mr. Smithe's telegram that we
were not the proper persons to apply
for the fulfilment of the promise made
by the government, but that application must come from the syndicate.
He proposed that a copy of the despatch from Hon. Mr. Smitho bo sent
to Mr. Van Horne, and that he be requested to inaruot the company's so
hcitora in Victoria to ask from, the
governmont a guarantee for the payment of the $37,500. Thia suggestion
wss accepted, aud the telegram ordered
to be sont.
Mr. Theo. Davie, M. P. P. tottyie-
toria, and Mr. Robt. McLeese, M.P.P.
for Cariboo, who were present, were
called up and took Beats on the platform. Mr. J. C. Armstrong then said
that what we wanted most juat now
was money, ud Mr. Bole proceeded to
ask for subscriptions to supply the
$37,500 promised by the government,
snd in a short time the sum of $30,600
had been put up. In response to re
pested calls
Mr. Davie said ho had been in the
city a few days, and was very much
pained to hear that what seemed to
him at wont a mistake might possibly
work disaster to the branch railway.
Every one knew that it was intended
that this city should be connected
with the Oi P, R., and it was his opinion that with auch a connection this
city, if it did not become virtually the
terminus, would certainly become one
of the most important oities on tho
line. He waa glad when he heard that
an agreement had been made with the
syndicate, but extremely sorry to find
such an unsatisfactory statu of things
now existing, and especially sorry to
discover that it was the fault of the
legislature. When that part of the
estimates referring to $37,500 came up
it seemed that au ill-advised condition
had been attached to the vote. It so
happened that he waa not present in
the house at the time. If he had beeu
present he would probably have voted
just as the rest had voted, not for one
moment considering that any evil result would follow. It muat be remembered that questions of this sort generally came up suddenly aud without notice, when members are not looking
for them. During the lost aession tho
house had spent a great deal of time
considering the Chinese question, and
it had been decided that iu every bill
passed by the house granting a franchise to any person or company a clause
prohibiting the employment of Chinese
should l» inserted; mid although that
may possibly have been carrying tho
principle too far, Jet it was certainly
the opinion of the country that Chinese should not be encouraged. It
waa perfectly natural, theu, that suoh
a resolution ahould be received with
tbe utmost favor and without misgivings by the house. In this way it
came Up and was passed without itp^o*
sitioh. He admitted that thia is not
the way it ought to have been considered. The question thnt ought to hnve
presented itself to the house was this:
Should we permit any change to bu
made in this agreement after it haa
been completed f Thia was the error
made by tho legislature, and he was
convinced that the action, of the legislature had heen one lhat it was not
competent to perform. While admitting that a great blunder had been
committed, it whs nut wise or fair to
conclude that there was anything worse
shah a blunder. It may he discovered
afterwards tlmt there are traitors In
tho camp, but it was not fair to impute
dishonest motives to tneutbors without
tof. He hoped the people of New
stminster would excuse him for
saying that it seemed to him their conduct had been most injudicious, and
such as to mako more difficult the very
'thing they moat wished to accomplish. He confessed that his own
views had changed considerably since
he oame tothe city, and he nuw viewed
the transaction in quite a different
light. He was sorry especially that
any person had been thoughtless
enough to resort to the unworthy expedient of burning in effigy three of
the representative* without henrihg
irom them explanation or defence.
According to the agreement the city
had t<» provide $37,600 and the right-
of-way before the lst May, and then
tho government might be called upon
I to do ita part.   But it might be bait
to provide against contingencies, and
for that purpose he was glad to see so
many gentlemen come forward and
subscribe so liberally towards a fund
which it might be necessary to full
back upon. There could bo no risk to
anyone joining iu this guarantee. He
admired their enterprise, and would
ask thom to accept his name for $1000.
Mr. McLeese, being called upon,
said ho was not prepared for a speech.
All he had to say was that if he had
been in tho house at the time he would
probably havo fallen iuto tho.same
nitBtake as had beeu made by the other
members. He happened to be out of
the room when the vote was taken,
and could not vouch for what took
place. Being an old resident of New
Westminster, hia heart still warmed
towards the city. Ho admired the
public spirit manifested by tlie people,
and not to be outdone by others, ho
would also put down $1000,
After a vote of thanks to Messrs.
Davie and McLeese and the mayor,
the meeting adjourned.

On Saturday the following telegram
was received from Victoria:.
Horry my telegram should have been
deemed unsatisfactory. Government
have no official knowledge of what has
been done by city to carry out its part
of clause 13 of agreement, and until city
has.done what is 'required of it the government's responsibility does not arise.
When notified that corporation has completed its part, government will deal
with railway company. Government
will then carry out their obligations and
will. move company to perform theirs
aWo.-'      ■-> ' ' Wm. Bmitiik,
At a meeting held on Monday afternoon' tliis telegram was read, but some
of those present conceived tliat the
government ought to say explicitly
whether it would ignore the Chinese
clause or not, and the following dispatch was ordered to be sent to Hun.
Mr. Smithe:
We understand your last telegram to
menu that government prepared to carry
out their part of clause 13 without reference to Chinese restriction clause, if corporation prepared to fulfil their part. Is
.tup? ,*.■; .
To this no answer has been received,
and probably nono will be sent. Tho
bund for $40,600 ia now ready for tho
bank, and us Mr. Van Horno has given
an assurance that work will go on
whenever the $75,000 has been assured, the matter is now practically settled.

BiKHlNQHAh, April 10.—Keports are
in circulation here that if Gladstone's
Irish .bill is rejected Lord Salisbury will
be called upon to form a ministry to continue until next year, and that Chamberlain and Lord Hartington will consent to
this, provided Lord Salisbury will uri-cc
to introduce ni> < contentions schemes.
The arrangement is said to be based upon
the anxiety of both parties to avoid an
election at the present time.
DriiLis, April 10, -The Orangemen of
Armagh inn-Is a public demonstration
to-day against Gladstone's Irish proposals. They adopted resolutions denouncing the premier nnd declaring their
allegiance to tho empire,
Nrak Starvation's Door.-Mrs. N.

Presbyterian Missions.
At a meeting of tho home missionary
committee of tho Presbyterian church,
held ut Toronto on the 31et ult., Rev.
D. M. Gordon, B.D. who lately visited this province, submitted a roport of
his mission. The report contains a
number of interesting items relating to
Presbyterian work in this province
Speaking of St. Andrew's church iu
this city the roport says: Tho revenue
for the year ending Dec. 31st, for congregational purposes was $1,050; salary paid Mr. McKay $1,000, to Mr.
Jamieson $350; $210 was paid to
schemes, and $120 towards library.
No debt on church property. The
envelope system is in use for tho purpose of raising the revenue. The congregation are at present building a
manse to cost about $2,000, the greater
part of which ib covered by subscription- they ask a continuation of the
grant of $400 for next year, and hope
to be ablo to roduce it after that. Tho
Sabbath school lias un average attendance of 100.
Vancouver, it savs, has at present
27 familiea, 10 communicants. 28 at
Sabbath school. The envelope system
is in use. There are no arrears. Tho
congregation is building a church to be
oompleted by Ut of May, the whole
cost of which will be about $4,000, and
being nearly covered by present sub
script ion, is expected to be opened fret
of debt. Owing to the heavy expense
of building and lack of accommodation
in the past, the congregation cannot
promise to raise more than $560 for
next year, beginning April lst. North
Arm has S families, 10 communicants,
2 elders, no Sabbath school yet, This
congregation is also building a church
on Sea Island, to cost about $1,700,
nearly covered by subscription, and to
be completed by Juno lst. Tho people
here promise at least $400. The united charge ask a grant uf $300 for next
year, beginning April lat.
Rev. Mr. Chisholm reports that in his
interior circuit haB been raised during
thu year $650. It was recommended
that the interior districts bo divided
into two groups as follows:
1. Nicola, Woodwards, Forks, Kam-
lonps, Moore's, QuiiBhamina, and North
Thompson. Mr, Chisholm desires to
retain this.-field to be worked by himself, and hopes to reduce the supplement to $300. This will depend on
whnt will be raised by Kamloops. This
group to supply $600 towards the missionary's salary.
2. Spence's Bridge. This field comprises Hope, Yale, Spence's Bridge,
Ashcroft and Savona, stations along
tho line of railway, with Clinton, an
important point about 30 miles from
Ashcroft on the Cariboo wagon road.
It was expected this group would bo
self sustaining.
On Vancouver Island a missionary
was recommended for Victoria district
group, oomprising six stations, Saanich, Cedar Hill, Craigflower, Esquimau, Mechoain, and Sooke}"this circuit to raise $700.
Alberni settlement, where there is
suid to be already 100 settlers, is expected to raise $200 towards a missionary's salary.
It waB also stated that applications
had been recoived from Cltilliwhack
and Farwell for Presbyterian services,
but it had not beon ascertained what
amount of contributions might bo expected from these places. It was *
deemed proper that no missionary in
this country should receive less than
$1000 a yoar.
It was resolved to ask a «rant of $400
to St. Andrew's, New Westminster;
$300 to Vancouver aud North Arm,
etc.; $400 tu Nicola, otc, and sufficient supplement for each of the othor
districts if the committee are in a position to pend missionaries to occupy,
them.
The committee appointed the Rev.
D. Mcltae, Rev, J. Jaffury, nnd Mr.
R. C. Tilib, ns missionaries to British
Columbia—Messrs. McRao and .luliury
for threo yenrs, and Mr. Tibb tor 12.
months. The appointment of Rev.
J. Taylor (by .the executive) to
New Westminstor, in tho absence of
Itov. J. S. Mackay, who is tit present
laid aside by sickness, was approved.
The executive was also empowered to
send another missionary to British
Columbia during the summer,
It was resolved to apply to the general assembly to provide a now presbytery for this province, to be called
the "Presbytery of Columbia," to be
connected with the synod of Manitoba
and the Northwest, and that thu tirst
meeting bo held in this city at 10 a. in.
op the first Tuesday in August next.
Rev. Mr. Gordon had a conference
with three of the four ministers of tho
Kirk iu this province. Rev. Mr.
Dunn reported that his congregation
at Langley was willing to unite with
the Canadian church, but the congregations at Victoria, Nanaimo and
Comox woro net so disposed. The
question of union could not therefore
bo settled, but congregations disposed
to union wero recom mended to como
into connection with tho Church of
Cuuada. ^^^^^^^^^^

WHAT THE PRESS HAS TO SAY.
The Daily News s;iys: "If tho enthusiastic ring oil both sides of tlio
houso is significant, Mr. Gladstone's
scheme has already received the ap-
i-foval of the house of commons. Tho
•speech will rank as Mr. Gladstone's
highest effort."
Tho Liverpool Post says tlmt whether
Gladstone is successful or not in carrying his bill through parliament he has
surely killed opposition and coorciou
in Ireland. *
The Manchester Guardian snys it is
a scheme-substantially for the repeal
nf the legislative union between Great
Britain and Ireland. Representation
of Ireland at Westminster must be retained; then with, this modification thu
measure may pass,
The Newcastle Chronicle says that
though the measure may admit of improvement in detail it jb the best
sohemo ever presented to parliament.
The Edinburgh Scotsman says tho
bill will not do as it stands. The ex*
el-isiuu of Irish members from Westminster will be fatal. Gladstone has
approached tho subject with heroic
spirit, but his desire to be generous to Ireland has carried him too
far. Ho was asked to give homo
rulo and ho proposes to give repeal.
It is snfo to sny the oouutry will not
sanction the scheme.
The Edinburgh .Daily Review recognizes Gladstone's patriotic and lofty
aims, but gays it iB disappointed at tho
exclusion of Irish members from the
The Edinburgh Scotiisli Reformer
comments on the scheme and pleads
for Scotch borne rule.
The Aberdeen Journal pronounces
tho proposals repulsive to every instinct
of the British people and fatal to
Gladstone's reputation.
Liberal papers, auch as the Aberdeen
Free Press, Glusgow Herald, Belfast
IVhiij, Londonderry Stendon!, ail oppose the bill.
The Dublin Freeman's Journal approves the scheme.
Tho Dublin Irish Times and Dublin
Express both disapprove of it.
In Cork thoro is great excitement
over Gladstone's proposals; but the
general opinion of the people is favorable to thom.
The Pidl Mall Gazette devotes its
loading article to the bill and heads
the article, "ThtB won't do." The
editor repudiates the scheme and says
lime ns it stands it places a premium
on separation.
Dispatches from all ever Great Britain and Ireland show that everywhere
popular interest was absorbed in the
outcome of yesterday evening's proceedings in the commons.

Pound-maker's Christianity.
On tbe lst of January, Poundmaker
and fotty-nine other Indians were
beinR instructed by the chaplain on
man's fall and Christ's death. Before
they separated Petokaona-pe*wiyin
(Poundmaker), addressed them and
uid: For me, it is not difficult to understand why Jesus has descended
from Heaven. When I look nt you
here the tears are in my eyes. Gladly
would I uive up my life to secure liberty for you/' The day he was liberated he and nino others were at Archbishop Tache's, and one spoke about
their losses and sufferings during captivity. Then Poundmaker suid: "I
regard that from another point of view.
God haa been graciuus to us in the
midst of our sufferings. He has made
us to see clearly. He has taught tis
the good religion, and wo kte good
Christians now. Let us pray God to
enlighten those who do not yot sec
clear."—Regina Leader.

The Pope uud Womau Suffrage.
New Youk, April 0.— The following
address was forwarded yesterday to
Home: "To His Holiness, Pope Loo
XIII.—Reverend Sir: The woman's
suffrage patty of New York state, an
organization devoted in the promotion
of virtue, justice and civilization, and
iu part composed of persons uot members of the church over which you preside, desires to express to you its
warmest thanks for your just and
benitic-ant decision in the case of the
Primrose league of Kngland, sanctioning woman's taking part in polities.
An impression hns prevailed iu America, despite tho noble example of many
Catholics, that the Catholic church is
hostile to woman's liberty. This grand
decision will go far to remove this
error, und to add to the uplifting of
woman, and hence of mankind throughout the world. No act that your predecessors for many generations has
done, will hear Buch great and glorious
fruit. With the kindest wishes and
grateful hearts we nre yours in sincere

A Rich Strike.
Tho miner's working in the No. 1
Esplanade Shaft belonging to tho Vancouver Coal Company on Saturday
opened up an extensive field of superior hard coal in the slope and in the
No. 1, north level. The indications
are looked upon by exports us favorable
in the extreme, and assure a largo area
of the famous Nanaimo coal. The
company und managing officials are to
be congratulated on the improved prospects, and so uru the citizens, for this
news will give a feeling of stability and
prosperity to tho city that will holp
materially to dispel tho gloom of the
present temporary depression. We
admit the clouds are dark, aye, very
dark to-day, but we are in hopes that
the bright to-morrow is not fur distant.
That tho silver lining of tho dark
oloud will Boon be apparent, and the
several collieries and other industries
spring into life, and the hum of industry and prosperity be heard on all
aides. We have an abiding faith in
Nanaimo aud hope iu a few months to
welcome back ag;iin thoso who through
the temporary depression havo by
necessity been compelled to seek a
field of labor elsewhere. To those who
remain wo would advise courage and
patience, for it is always darkest just
aa,the day is dawning.— Nanaimo Free

Mr.   George  Olds,  general  trallic
manager of the Canadian Pacific, who
is in the city, states that his road will
be opened through to Vancouver, its
Pacific terminus, about June 1.  While
hiB company does not mean to actively
compete for the Oregon or California
business, it means to work hard for a
full share of the Washington Territory
and all   the Northwestern Territory
business which is contiguous to and
can easily be reached hy his road. His
road will.be well able to get away with
a largo aht.ro uf tho Washington Territory business, having superior facilities
for reaching  all principal points by
steamers on Puget Sound.   Of course
all the British Columbia business would
go by his road.   Ab his company has
no intention of competing for California traffic, he could see no reason why
his company should join the Transcontinental Association.   If the association is evor reorganized, it would have
to be done without the assistance of his
company.   It means to compote only
for business from such points as it can
easily reach, and besides the Oregon
lines can have no competitors for that
business, and as this would no doubt
securo its full share and therefore does
not need to go into a combination with
the California lines.   Next season his
company expects to he able to compete
actively with the California lines for
the business from China and Japan, as
the Canadian government haa already
decided to subsidize a line of steel
built steamships to run between Vancouver and China and Japan.   These
steamers would be superior to any now
in tho China or Japan -service, and
would, nu doubt, in connection with
the Canadian Pacific, secure (he great
bulk of the European business.   His
company was now at work shortening
the line between Montreal and Halifax,  whioh, when completed, would
enable it to run trains between Halifax
and Vancouver in seven days.   Uut,
aside from its   competition   for  the
North Pacifio coast business, his company would soon be ablo to compete
actively for the east bound traffic from
Chicago to Montreal and all New England points.   From   Chicago  to St.
Thomas his company wuuld uho the
Michigan Central, and from Montreal
to New Kngland points .the Montreal
SoutheMtern, with which roads a traf-
fie agreement had been perfected.   In
anticipation of heavy traffic between
Chicago and Montreal and Now England pointi, We oompany has decided
to build 120 miles of new rond betwoen
Toronto   and .Montreal;   whieh mill
shorten the route 40 miles.   Tho new
road will be constructed in the most
superior mannar.   Only 72-pound.steel

Ugly dreg-
At the Detroit house of correction a
year or so ago, the high, whitewashed
walls of tho corridors were furnished
with brackets and flower-pots to relieve
the monotony and take away some of
the gloom. One would scarcely think
that the rough-lookint?, wicked men
sent there for robbery, burglary, arson,
and craver crimes, would have cared
for the change, yet they gladly welcomed it. A rose^'geranium, or tulip, or pink, seemed to bring sunshine
a little nearer, and tc drive the evil
out of their hearts and it was a strange
sight to seo hardened criminals watering and nourishing the tender plants
and watching their daily growth.
Two or three months before the
brackets wero hung up a prisoner came
from one of the territories—un old,
sulleu-louking, bad-tempered man, convicted of robbing the mails. They
called him "Greg," as short fur Gregory, and it wasn't lung before they
mnde it "Ugly Greg." *"He was ugly.
Hu refused to work, cared nothing for
rules or regulations, and twenty-eight
days out uf his firat month were spent
in tho "solitary" for bad behavior.
He was expostulated with, threatened,
ami punished, but he had a will as
hard as iron. He hadn't a friend iu
tho prison, and the knowledge of it
seemed tu make him more u»ly and
desperate. When the brackets were
hung up there was one to spare, and it
was placed near the door of Ugly
Greg's cell until another spot could be
found. Nu one had any hope that the
old man's heart could be softened, nnd
some one st.id he would dash the flower
pot to tho floor.
When ha came in front the shops his
face expressed surprise at the Bight pf
the little green rosebuds so close to
tho door of his cell. He scented it,
carefully placed it back, and it was noticed that the hard lines melted out uf
his face for a time, No one said anything to him, but the next morning
before he went to work he carefully
watered the rose, and his eyes lost
something of their sullen look, Wuuld
you believe that the little rose-bush
proved more powerful than all the
arguments and threats of tho keepers ?
It did, strangely enough, Ab tho days
went by the old man lost his obstinacy
and his gloominess, and he obeyed
orders as well and as cheerfully ab the
best man in the prison. His face took
on a new look, his wholo bearing
changed, and the keepers looked at
him and wondered if lie could bu the
aame man Greg, of four or five months
before. He watched the rose us a
mother would watch her child, and it
came to be understood that it was
his. While some of the other flowers
died from want of care, the rose-tree
grow and thrived and made the old
man proud. He carried it into his cell
at night and replaced it in the morning, t.,,-1 "tmietimes ho voiild talk to it
as if it were a human being. Its presenco opened his lonesome heart uud
planted good seed there, and from the
day the bracket was hung uu no keeper
had the leaat trptlble with Dgly Ore-**;.
A fuw weeks ago lie was taken sick,
and when he went tu tho hospital thc
rise-tree wont with him, niid was
placed whero the warm sun could give
it the nourishment it needed. After a
day or two it was hoped that the old
man would got better; but he kept
sinking and growing feebler. Su lonf»
as his eyes were open he would watch
the rose, and when he slept he seemed
to dream of it. One day when ttie
nurse found un opening bud he rejoiced
as heartily as if-his pardon papora had
arrived. The bud was larger next day,
and tho rose could be seen bursting
through. The flower-pot was placed
on the bed, near the old man's face,
that ho might watch the bud blossom
into a rose, and he was so quiet that
the nurse did not approach him again
for hours. The warm spring sun glided
in through tho bars and kissed the
opening bud, and then fell off in showers over the old man's pale face, erasing overy line of guilt and ugliness
which had ever beon raised.
At noon the nurse saw that the rose
had blossomed, and she whispered iu
the old man's ear:
"Greg, Greg, the roso has blossomed
—wake up."
He did not move. She felt his
cheek and it was cold. Ugly Greg was
dead.
Ono hand rested under his gray
locks, while the other clasped tho
flower-pot, and the new-born rose bent
down until it almost touched his cold
face. His life hnd gone cut just when
his weeks uf weary watching for a blossom were to ho repaid, but .the rose-
trco's mission was accomplished.— Detroit Free. Press.

"Hum," said Mrs. Sombre, looking
at a newspaper illustration of a crematory, beside whioh stood a ooflin; "I
thought thu expense of a cufliu wiib
dispensed with when tho body waa incinerated I"
"Well, bo it is," replied her husband j ''the.coffin is not burned; it is
returned und uaed to convoy tho next
corpse to the furnace,"
"Ugh," shuddered Mrs. S,, "that
settles it. I will never bo cremated,

which a person who has died of smallpox or somo other contagious disease
has lain!   None for me,"
The Mahdi's grave outside Omdurman is now marked by a plain monument, erected by his successor, Sheikh
Abdtilla. The False Prophet is buried
on the spot where ho died in his tont,
hia sword and silver helmet lying on
his tomb, where four dervishes watch
and pray continuously. Now the
grave is enclosed in a atone and brick
tmver, about 14-J feut in diameter.
The outside wall is whitewashed and
decorated with nn inscription in huge
bluck letters, stating that the "A tubus-
