O'Brien In Toronto.
In our isBUii of yesterday we
stated that the reports of Mr.
O'Brien's reception in Toronto
seemed to have been greatly exagor-
'ated, as tho Globe containing nn account of the affair did not mention
that anything like a riot hud taken
place. But the Globe of the 19th
and 20th inst., since received, tells
a different story. Although no riot
occurred during Mr. O'Brien's meeting, nn the following day tho Irish
agitator was set upon by ii mob who
howled for his life, and he escaped
only by tho skin of his teeth. The
disorder, although the report of it
telegraphed over the country may
have been highly colored, was such
at least as to disgrace any city of
any civilized country. We could
not bring ourselves to believe such
things possible in a city like Toronto, where order and public security are so well established; but it
is seemingly impossible to tame
some Irishmen. The combative instincts which have given them a
reputation over the world may lie
dormant for generations and break
out suddenly in all their fury as unexpectedly as lightning out of a
clear sky. It is stated that the
persons upon whom rests the responsibility of the outrages escaped
arrest, and the Globe very properly
demands that they be promptly
hunted out and punished with the
severest penalty the law provides.
In this demand we are sure all true
patriots will unite, O'Brien made
a very great mistake in coming to
this country upon the mission which
brought him, but he is under our
protection, and the law must be
vindicated.

Two Standards or Justice.
As an illustration of the difference iu which the law is meted out
in the courts of British Columbia
and of Washington Territory, we
have only to refer to the cases of
Wm. Shearer, who killed J. E,
Murne at Westminster, and of the
thrco murders in this county, two
nt Sciniahmoo, and one at Point
Roberts, in which Murne took an
active interest in the defense of the
murderers. Two weeks ago to-morrow Shearer committed his deed,
and already he has had his trial,
and been pronounced guilty and sentenced to pay the severest penalty
of the law, on July 6th, exactly two
months after he took the life of his
victim. An attempt was made by
the lawyer appointed to defend him
to have his trial postponed until the
fall courts on the plea that he was
insane and incompetent to instruct
his council as to his defense. But
it did not avail. That was law
meted out in a British court. Of
the other three murders referred to,
the man who took the life of Harris some four years ago is alive and
at liberty to-day; the man who took
the life of Can Shea some three
years ago is also at liberty; and the
man who last June killed John Mo-
Sweeny still lives, and soon will
hare finished a sentence of only a
year and a half in tho penitentiary
inflioted as a punishment for his
crime. The interest Murne took
in his defense, and the disputes between Murne and McSweenyover
possession of fishing grounds on the
Point Roberts reserve are still fresh
in the minds of the people of this
locality. The question naturally
suggests itself: if courts are really
courts of justice, why should these
men lire and Shearer diet The
lives of the three murdered men
were surely ns dear to them as
Murne'a life was to him, and the
lives, at least the lives of two of
them, were worth no less to the com
munity at large, Justice is justice,
the world over. Justice in the
courts of one nation cannot be injustice in the courts of another. In
dealing with the murder cases in
which Semiahmoo is immediately
interested, linvc the courts of this
territory erred'from justice on the
side of too much leniency, or has
the Westminster court erred on the
other sidel Or have both courts
erred, and, if so, where between
the two extremes is the golden mean
of exact justice to be foundl Evidently the judicial goddess holds a
pair of unbalanced scales, the pair
whose fulcrum is the national border. Which way does the beam
tip?—^faine Journal.

CASAD1 AND TBE U. S.
Nkw York, May 25.—To a Iforirf
correspondent who has been in Canada
recently Sir John Macdonald said:
"Canada is desirous of having the
widest possible extradition treaty between England and the United States.
It is a great nuisance to us to bo made
the receptacle of all your runaway defaulters and embezzlers, I believe
England is also desirous of having an
enlarged extradition treaty, and so far
as I know the objeotion to a wider
treaty comes from the United States,
The old extradition treaty with the
United States is faulty in many respects, and a treaty on a. wider basis
has been suggested, but some diplomatic difficulties have hitherto prevented its adoption. The premier did
not caro to say what the "diplomatic
difficulties" were. From another
source, however, it ia learned that the
trouble lay, in part at least, in the refusal of the United States to inaert a
clause in the treaty providing for the
extradition of dynamiters; thatback of
the "diplomatic difficulties" surrounding the question there was some
political difficulty.
ANOLO-TURKISH CONVENTION.
London, Hay 25.—The Anglo-
Turkish convention relative to Egypt
provides for the maintenance of all
existing treaties, neutralization.of the
Suez canal, a guarantee of the internal
inviolability of. Egypt, that the British shall withdraw froroEgypt in three
years unless the country is threatened
with danger either internal or external. England shall after the withdrawal of her troops supervise the
whole Egyptian army for two years,
with the right to reoccupy with or
without the aid of Turkish troops if
disturbance or invasion is feared.
England and Turkey jointly shall invite the powers to adhere to the convention and propose modifications.
All the powers except Russia co-operate with England fo expedite a settlement. England has made every possible concession to arrive at an understanding with Turkey.
an enoineehs' strike.
San Francisco, May 25.—The
Marine Engineer'a Association held a
meeting last night at whioh it was decided that all steam schooners on the
coast must employ one engineer at
$120 per month, an assistant engineer
at $90 per month, and two firemen.
In accordance with this the engineers
on the Belia, Whiteaboro and Greenwood, the only steam schooners now
in port, struck this afternoon on the
owners of the vessels refusing to comply with their demands. As other
vessels arrire in port the men will be
ordered out. As all the engineers in
port belong to tho union, the rosult
wilt be the tying up of the vessels.
The owners scorn determined not to
concede the demands.
a bio fire,
Paris, May 25.—The Opera Com-
ique burned this evening. Fourteen
persons who jumped from windows are
dead, and 43 injured. Probably
many were crushed to death in the
galleries. The fire broke out during
the first act of the opera Mignon. One
of the wings caught fire from a gas jet,
and the entire stage was immediately
enveloped in flames. Tbo lire soon
spread to the whole house. Mes-
dames Mergmtlier, Tasquin and Bernard were on the stage when the Ore
broke out. All the actors ran out in
stage costumes. The audicucc not out
easily, but tho gaa was turned off before all left the building, and it la
feared anno were left in the upper
tiers. The roof soon fell in, sending
showers nf sparks aa far aa Place de la
Bourre. With tho exception of Mine.
Sellier, who perished, all the actors
escaped, though a number woro seriously injured. Five bodies, terribly
burned, were conveyed to the National Library, among them the body of a
woman clasping a little boy in her
aims. Tho firemen showed the great
eat courage Nineteen persons aro
known to be doad. Women half clad,
carrying costumes, (led from the Btupi
screaming. Supers and members of
the chorus wore terrified. Some of
the latter fled with nothing on but
tights. The flames spread with great
rapidity. In 15 minutes the singe was
a vast furnace, Several actors escaped by climbing to the roof, whence
they were jescued by fire escapee. M.
Tasquin implored the audienoe to remain aeatcd until the exits were
opened, whioh they did. If they had
made a rush for the doors the lost of
lit. would have been terrible, The
police outside were unable to restrain
the crowd who besieged the building
inquiring for friends. One man,
who wanted to rescue his brother and
sister, raved, tore his hair, and menaced with a stick the people who
stopped him from rushing into the
biasing building. The scene outaide
was one of the wildest esoltement,
Falling timbers struck the horses In
the surrounding streets, causing them
to plunge and rear. Flames shot out
of every window, forcing the crowd
into the harrow streets, where th*
cruah wu terrific. Mm*. Digaront.
says there were 150 persons on the
stage when the fire broke out. She
heard glass breaking, but told the
others not to mind it. Bat while she
was speaking a column of flame broke
through the wing with a roar, and all
ruahed pell-mell from th* building.
Many policemeu were injured. It is
still unknown how many persons were
able to escape from tho doomed building. "
COMMERCIAL UNION.
New York, May 25,-The World
will print a series of interviews with
prominent men in Canada concerning
the reported movement there in favor
of commercial union with the United
States, if not of absolute annexation.
Several notablo representative* of the
banking and farming interest* express
themselves in favor of commercial
union. The correspondent says he
finds the sentiment among fanners
practically a unit in favor of commercial union, He also notes the prevalence of extreme discontent with the
Dominion government in Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick, and also in the
Northwest.
THE BODIES LriNO  IN BEAM.
Paris, May 25.—The bodies of the
ballet dancers who lost their lives by
the burning of the Opera Comique last
night are lying in heaps In the ruins
of the theatre. The firemen assert
that many bodies are lying in the upper galleries. The number of person*
killed greatly exceed* previous estimates. An excited crowd surround*
the ruins, which are guarded by a
military cordon.
MORE BODIES RECOVERED.
Paris, May 26, 4 p. m.—Twenty
more bodies have been recovered this
afternoon.

The Policy or Disallowance.
During a discussion whidi arose
on the bill to incorporate the Westminster Southern Railway the policy of tho Moral government on
the question of the disallowance of
provincial railway charters running
to the southern boundary was de-
.•hired by the minister of railways.
Our readers are aware thnt this railway has already been chartered by
tho provincial legislature, and that
the charter is held by trustees appointed by the Westminster Board
of Trade. Tho object is to connect
this city and the 0. P. E. with tlio
projected railway from Seattle north
to tho boundary, which would bring
us into direct connootion with the
whole American railway system on
tint coast and over tho continent,
The Hoard of Trade proposes to hold
this charter until it oan safely be
surrendered to a company that will
undertake to build this connecting
link nnd operate it in such a way
as to serve tho public interest.
Having obtained a provincial charter it was decided to apply for a
Dominion charter as well, because
there was considerable doubt as to
whether the federal government
would not disallow the provincial
charter. The bill came up for discussion More the railway committee
n few days ago, and the further consideration of it was laid over for a
week. It is stated, however, that
the government has definitely determined to continue the policy of
disallowance, and that in this determination it has assurances of support from a majority of the representatives. Before the railway committee Mr. Ohisholm, member for
this district, explained tho nature
of the franchise asked for, und intimated that the road, if built, would
become a feeder to the C. F. R. Mr.
Mitchel, of the Montreal Herald
(the 0. P. R. organ) proclaimed his
opposition to tho construction of
that or any other road which might
divert Canadian trade into American
channels. The people of the eastern provinces, he said, had paid too
dearly for that trade to permit it
by any mean* to slip away from
them. Mr. Edgar favored the granting of the charter, and Mr. Mara
(representative of Yale district)
pointed out the fact already stated
by Mr. Ohisholm, that this road
would in the very nature of things
become an important feeder of the
C. P. R, There was no analogy, he
said, between British Columbia and
Manitoba in so far as this line was
coucerned, because Manitoba proposed to tap the 0 P. R. in its centre while the Westminster line was
simply a branch feeder at the terminus. Mr. Mara is undoubtedly
right, but Sir Heetor Langevin announced that the policy of tbe government respecting disallowance remained unaltered. He maintained
that the agreement with the C. P.R.
applied to Manitoba as well as to the
Northwest, and we presume he meant
this assertion to cover British Columbia also. But Sir Hector Langevin went even further than this.
"The object of the policy," he said,
"is to secure the trade of western
Canada to the Canadians." This,
although not altogether a new doctrine, is a very explicit declaration
of one of the objects of disallowance,
and explains mora tally the motives
which lie at the bottom of the policy. We never understood that in
the agreement with the C. P R.
. there was anything binding the government lo disallow railway charters in Manitoba or British Columbia, nnd nothing thnt has yet been
said on the other side is sufficient
to change that opinion. At the
time of the agreement British Col
umbia and Manitoba were organized provinces, with just as much
constitutional liberty and indepen
dence as any other province in the
Dominion. British Columbia never
consented to surrender that independence, and as it was guaranteed
by the British North America act,
it could not be taken away by an
arbitrary order-in-counoil, or a resolution of the government. The
monopoly clause of the 0. P. R,
contract does not necessarily apply
to British Columbia, or to any part
of the country then existing under
properly organized provincial govern
meiit, and it is only by an arbitrary
and unjust interpretation of the
clause that it could be so applied.
But Sir Hector Langevin now justifies the policy of disallowance on
tho broad principle of protection—
a principle which ha* been carried
by the present government almost
to the extreme limit of endurance.
Because the eastern provinces have
had to pay a great deal of
money for the construction of the
C. P. R., he says, such regulations
must be enforced as will compel the
western provinces to buy eastern
products and thus enable them to
recoup themselves for the outlay.
We are glad the minister has been
so explicit, because we understand
now that so long as the policy of
protection continues, so long may we
expect disallowance to be continued.
The present government came into
office on tbe strength of the principle of protection. It has, consequently, received the support of
manufacturers and monopolists
everywhere, and there is great dancer that it may hive committed
itself » far to thi* class of people
as to endanger the public interest.
Did it never occur to these people
that there aro wostem rights and
interests which ought to be consid]
cred as > well as those of eastern
manufacturers! Has Sir Hector
Langevin forgotten that British
Columbia consented to enter confederation only on condition that the
0. P. R. would be constructed!
There was then no monopoly railway clause thought of, nnd no policy
of disallowance. And have we not
contributed towards this great national highway as well as our eastern friends! In proportion to her
population this province has pnid
more towards the C. P. R. than
any province in the Dominion. Not
only have we surrendered a vast
belt of our best lands, but wo have
consented for many years to pay
enormous sums in the way of customs duties for goods which wo
could not bring from eastern Canada. In addition to thoso largo contributions, does the minister think
it equitable that our rights should
be taken from us on the plea thnt
we ought to be compelled by force
of circumstances to take our goods
from eastern manufacturers and at
their own pricesl No independent
province could submit to the operation of such u polioy without protest; and we maintain that if our
representatives, in consideration of
any party interests, acquiesce in
such a doctrine, they are not representatives of the true interests of
their constituents. Let the Dominion government at once pass an net
making it a criminal offence for a
British Columbian to purchase from
any one but a Canadian; let it erect
along our southern boundary a stone
wall over which it will be impossible
to pass; and then we shall give it
credit for oorrying out to its legitimate limit the doctrine upon which
it proposes to disallow our railway
charters. We declare again that
the Westminster Southern Railway
would not take trade away from the
0. P. R.; but if it did, we protest
against the enforcement of ti principle which discriminates so unjustly
against British Columbia, especially
after her singular loyalty to tlio existing government.

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL REPORT.
Gentlemen—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to atate that it will be an utter
impossibility to run tho hospital free of
debt on the grant just voted by the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has been attentive in his
duties and reports a large increase in the
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also tlmt wo have received
patients from all parts of tho province.
There are a number of incurables in
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Viotoria hospital years ago. The
sum of 01,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the last
few years. The board think, thereforo,
that some of these incurables should be
shipped back to Victoria.
A great number of improvements have
been made during the year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspool, thoroughly cleaned; the
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expend-
lnure.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity during the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous substriptkms, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also tbe congregations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladiea and
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.

The surgeon's report is appended hole-
to, and gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost par day for each resident patient in tbe hospital, whioh includes tbe disbursements on outdoor
patients, is 07 cents.

Tho number of Incurables now In the
Hospital Is twolvo [121. This large number requiring to be taken care of from
year to year renders It Impossibletomake
ii number of desirable Improvements In
Ilia building, owing to tlwllmited supply
of funds. I have introduced tnetable or
residences to show tho pcoplo OfiRlltisb
Columbia Hint they all ought totako an
Interest In helping on this Institution,
which Is increasing In usefulness every
year,1 ns maybe seen by comparing the
number of 1 ndoor patients of tho previous
voar —seventy-five (75)—with this year-
one hundred and throo (103).
Wo still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from tlio building. Tho
floors und walls have been improved and
tho new wash-room Is a great addition to
the comfort of tho place.
I have great pleasure In thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for presents nf clothes, old linen, pictures, books
anil iniii'-rs. Again I have to thank the
steward, Mr. Charles Dlgby, for bis con-
slant, nttentlon In the cleanliness of the
building nnd Ills kindness and nttentlon
lo tbe wants of the Kick nnd his readiness
In currying out all my directions. Before
closing this report I must offer my sincere
thanks to the medical gentlemen who so
kindly ottered their asslstunco lo myself
whenever required during the past year.
I am Yours Faithfully,

TREASURER'S REPORT.
In presenting the accounts for the past
year, tho Trcusurer begs to call attention
to tho fact that the outlay has been rigid y
scrutinised, in which ho has been ably
assisted by tho Btewnrd, Mr. Dlgby. There
seems little prospect of any reduction of
expenditure. You will notice that the
subscriptions hnvo beon liberal and have
been a great asslstunco in keeping the
Institution free ot debt. It Is to be regretted thnt the Government have reduced
tbo grant to tho Hospital from $4,500 to 18,-
600. w. h. keary;

1 flouofOB.!l>B.of«Til|iuithropUts.
A newspaper man ot wide acquaint-
anoe and benevolent disposition waa going home one night not long ago when
he tell In, at the doorway ot» hotel,
with a person ot some consequence In
the community, who had tarried much
too long over the wine cup, and was in a
stale where disgrace It not harm might
oome to htm It be were not goUafely
home very soon.
'• Bless me I" said the new«paper man
to himself, "here', a chance to do the
}ood Samaritan. I'll have to handle
obson carefully, because he Is very
drunk, and adroitly steer him home
while seeming to let him have hi* own
Bo he atopped and (ell Into easy con-
venation with Johaon, and presently
said i
"Well, I must be going home, Jobson.
Won't you walk along with me!"
"Bhert'nly, 61' bo, ahertn'ly," aald
Jobson. " Great'ey pleasure/n '• warl'
ahee a man home. Oome it' long, ole
fellow, ooe 'long."
They »ot out together, the newspaper
man supporting the unsteady movements
of hi* oompatuon.  !
Suddenly the former remembered that
he didn't know where Jobson lived, except that It wu *om*where away off in
the southern outskirts ol the eliy, a fearful dlstanoe beyond his own house. But
he didn't dare to ask .any. questions that
would tuggest to Jobson that he wa»
taking him home, and simply, depended
on th* Impetus in the right direction to
carry them along.
Presently they reached the newspaper
man's house, and Jobson Insisted on
leaving him there. But the newspaper
man grew very brotherly and kept Job-
son going.
The latter protested that the night
was damp and chilly, WM It wouldn't
do for him, the Journalist, to stay out,
and »o on. But the newspaper man
kept him going ud going.
There wasn't a car or a carriage, and
the good Samaritan wouldn't have dared
to take on* it there hod been. It grew
very late Shd he thought of his own
wife getting up la *'um ot a'8 "hsence.
But he was in for It
Along toward morning they reached a
door whioh Jobson, who had grown
drunker and drunker, seemed to have a
friendly Interest In.
The newspaper man tried It, and Hr*.
Jobson came to the door.
"All rl' old girl," eald Jobson, "my
fr'en' seen me home, now I mus* shoo
him home. Goo'night, ole girl 1 Can't
let him go 'ome 'lone In this damp air I"
It "ould seem that nothing could restrain Jobson from starting back to
town with his companion. Finally he
insisted, u a compromise, that tho newspaper man should stay ail night with
Him.
Mra. Jobson gave u appealing look,
and the Journalist consented, thinking; to
get Jobson In the house and then slip
out, by his wife's aid. But once in, Job-
son insisted that he must sleep with
him, nt.d grew very ugly when he tried
lo got out of it.
And so the unfortunate newspaper
man went up to bed with the drunkard,
who took oft his coat only when his
friend dl I, and wouldn't touch a single
button until tho othor had unfastened
the corresponding one, and wouldn't get
into bed until the other had.
At hut both were snugly under ths
sheets, and the newspaper man was
waiting eagerly for some sign that his
companion was asleep, when Jobson ex-
olaiinei:
" Great —, ole fellow, did you shay
your prayer*!"
" No."
" By she ole Harry, got up ud shay
your prayers, an' I'll shay mine I"
The newspaper man got up ud knelt
at one aid* ot the bad ud Jobson at the
other. Whan the oeramonlea were completed, both got back Into bad, ud In
about five minute* Jobson began to
more loudly.
Th* newspaper man saw hi* opportunity. Be. row stealthily, put on his
uudercloUUng with trambllng band*,
uncalled down th. stair* with hi* outer
garments' la his arms, ud. finished fell
dressing below. Than he bade the weeping Mr*. Jobson good morning, ud
started tor hi* own house.
It waa broad daylight when he reached
home, ud be found another weeping
womu there to greet htm,
"The next time I find a drunken man
making a tight of It," ths new»p»per
man say* now, " h* can make a night ot
it for all me. I have had enough of
the good Samaritan buslnata to last me

FACTS AND FANCIES ABOUT FAIRIES.
Th. Delightful "Little People" of Fabli
and Story.;;:
I have been to some pains to gathei
from various sources the names by
whioh the fairies have been known in
various countries and at various time*.
The extent of the list may surprise yon.
I will repeat it to yon:
Fairies, elves, ole-folks, fays, urchins,
onphes, oil-maids, ell-women, dwarfs,
trolls, norns, nisses, kobolds, duende,
brownies, necks, stromkarls, fates, little wights, undines, salamanders, goblins, hob-goblins, ponkes, buihees,
kelpies, nixies, mom people, good people, good neighbors, men of peace, wild
women, white ladies, I pais, djinns,
genii, and gnomes.
You hotioe, of court*, that I use th*
word fairy in its broadest sense, placing
in this oategory all presumably dispossessed spirits which once inhabited human bodies, but an not yet considered
meet to dwell with the "taint* in
light."
In nurse*' tale* the fairy I* almost in-,
variably a pertonifloation of Providence, but in the wider domain of ro-
mutio literature tbe term is applicable
to a large class of mythological spirits
known by the various name* I have
mentioned.
Dwarfs and elves were little people
who figure much in Scandinavian literature, the former being often violent
ud malignant, and the latter sportive,
mischievous but useful, and visible
only to children born on Sundays.
The kobolds were the domestic fairies
of Germany, similar to the kelpies of
Scotland and the nisses of Norway.
They were all skilled in musio ud
dancing, and were fond ot frolicking
by moonlight,
Necks ud stromktrls inhabited the
rivers and lakes of Northern Europe,
and were similar to the mermen ud
mermaid* cf a less remote supentition,
The nixies are alto.of this elass and
figure largely in German folk lore.
Previous to the death of a person by
drowning, they can be teen—so the
legends say—dancing on the face of the
water. The female bears the semblance
of a beautiful maiden, and she conveys
mortals to a beautiful subaqueous
abode, where they meet the male, who
has green teeth ud always wean a
green hat.
Fates are Italian fairies. The duende,
ortrasgo, is the moat frequently mentioned Spanish fairy. The "white
ladies " were Norman fairies.
Here is an ancient description of the
dress of the fairies:
"They wear a red conical,rap; a
mantle of green cloth inlaid with wild
flowers; green pantaloons, buttoned
with bobs ot silk, aud silver ahoon.
They carry quivers ot arrow slough,
ud bows made of the rib* ot * man
buried where'three lairds' lands meet;'
their arrows are made of bog reed,
tipped with white flints ud dipped in
the dew of hemlock; they ride on steeds
whoso hoofs would not dash the dew
from the cup of a harebell."

Bwitserlud will be struck at once or
the beauty of the country ud the ugliness of the women.
"Here nature seems to have spent
herself upon inanimate objects and to
have had no material left for humanity
which she composed out of th* dtbria
left over after she had constructed the
miseenscene. A pretty face, nativeud
to the manner born, is nrely it ever
seen upon th* strests of Berne.
"The women appear to do all the work.
It is not unusual to tee a girl ud a dog
hitched to a cart ud trotting along together like a pair of ponies. " >'■>
"The men, great stopping fellow*,
idle and lazy, lost about the brasnrie*.
Their wives, daughter* ud sisten
till the fields end supply the market*.
"The dog, the goat ud the cow perform the offices commonly performed in

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(X.IMITUD.)
ON THE 10TB OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Coujiisun Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited1." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster.

tho new company Is to continue the publication of the British Columbia* newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso Individual Interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will bo no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money,
The Coiuvimx will continue to be entirely Independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of snch schemes aa
may be considered in the public interest.
Th. concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in liisown name and tor his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this city, and
the new ooajpany asks tar public patronage on the ground that It is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Col-
tiMniAx be judged on Its own merit* and
supported only so long aa Its policy ia
enconslstt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all account* due the concern must be settled
without delay so that th* books of the
former company may be adjusted and
dosed. Address nil communications and

our readers will find an announcement
from one of the oldeat and most reliable soap manufactories on tho Pacific
coast. Pendruy & Co., of Victoria,

the meeting to order. Mr. Wm. Johnson was elected chairman and Mr. D.
McGregor wns elected secretary. Mr.
J. C. Armstrong, on rising, said that
this was a matter that as many citizens
as possible should attend to, and as
other attractions had left tho attendance rather limited, ho moved for an
adjournment to Friday evening. Mr.
A. M. Horring seconded tho motion,
which was carried without u dissolving
voice.
How It Wonts.—The advantngo of
receiving our Victoria mails by way of
Burrard Inlet ia well illustrated by the
experience of yesterday and to-day.
Yesterdap the mail came by steamer,
and arrived at 5:45 p. m. To-day it
came by the inlet, and was convoyed
by stage from Vancouver to thia city,
where it arrived at 10:30 a. in. Tub
difference between the two routes, by
actual experience, ia thus shown to be
6 hours and 15 minutes in favor of
Burrard Inlet. We do not suppose
the Rithet will always arrive us lute aa
the did yesterday, or that the mail
stage from Vancouver will always arrive as early as it did to-day, but we
could always count on receiving Victoria mails by way of the inlet about
four hours sooner at least than we
shall receive them with the present
steamboat service.

riding Mr. W. H, Ladner's horse in
the second race the saddle slipped
around and the horse threw its rider,
breaking his leg. Dr. Mclnnes was in
attendance as soon as possible, and wo
are sure all will be glad to hear that
we may expect to Bee tho clerk around
again in the course of three weeks.
The athletic sports were well contested. The festivities were brought
to a close with a ball at the town hall
in the evening, at whioh 60 couples
were present, and the dancing was
kept up till 2 o'clock in the uiornimr,
At least one couple will remember this
last Queen's Birthday at Ladner's.
The Dead.
William Brabaaon, earl of Meath
and baron of Ardec, died to-day in
London, at 84 years of age.
Thomas Robinson, Farnham Centre,
P. Q., writes: "I have been afflicted with
rheumatism for the last ten yearn, and
have tried many remedies without any
relief. I got a bottle of Dr. Thomas'
Eclectrie Oil, and found it gave instant
relief, and since then have had no attack.
I would recommend it to all."

Wednesday's Meeting.
Eiutot Columbian.—The writer was
present last evening at the public meeting which wns called by the friends of
the discharged constables. There wore
very few present, owing, perhaps, to the
fact of the temperance lecture aud other
meetings being held at the same time.
Tlio meeting was called to order, but for
lack of an audience it was adjourned. It
appears to ine that this movement by
the people in behalf of those who have
been notified to quit is very much like
tlio case of the scene depicted by Rev.
Sam,I oiios in his address to the mothers
of Toronto. "Mothers'," he said, "are
as a rule too indulgent, and when they
attempted to curtail tho privileges of
the daughters there was generally a big
row—the too-much-indulged daughters
would not stand the curb-rein, but would
kick, ami sometimes would kick their
mothers, who had indulged and spoiled
them." The city fathers havo been very
much like mothers who are responsible
for spoiling their daughters.

the past six years. All the remedies
tried were uselt-BS, until Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic
Cure was brought under my notice. I have
used two bottles with the best results,

A Few Maxims on now to Get
Rlcb.
Live up to your engagements.
Earn money before you spend it.
Never play at any game of chance.
Drink no kind of intoxicating liquor.
Good character is above all things
else.
Keep your own secrets, if you have
any.
Keep good company or none. Never
be idle.
Never borrow if you can possibly
avoid it.
Always speak the truth. Make few
promises.
Do not marry until you are able to
support a wife.
Keep yourself innocent if you would
be happy.
Ever live (misfortune excepted) within your incomo.
When you speak to a person look
him in the face.
Make no haste to bo rich, if you
would prosper.
S.ivo whon you nro young to spend
when you aro old.
Avoid temptation, through fear you
may not withstand it.
Never speak evil of anyone. Be
lust before you are generous.
Never run into debt unless you see
plainly a way to get out again.
Small and steady gains give competency with tranquility of mind.
Good company and good conversation are the very sinews of virtue.
Your character cannot be essentially
injured except by your own acts.
If any ono speaks evil of you, let
your life bo so that none will believe
liiin,
When you retire to bed think over
what you have boon doing during the
day.
If your hands cannot be usefully
employed, attend to the cultivation of
your mind.—JV.no York Matt,
