Interference with general inter
ooune by land would injure ui quite
as muoh aa th. Canadians, aiid perhaps- more, and lodging ihe power
in the hands of tbe president would
have a disturbing effect, even if it
should not be used. It ii not wile'
'to do anything which would have
an unnecessarily exasperating effeot
and render an amicable settlement
of the oMtroveny more difficult.—
if. r. Timet.,,-.      , ,  '
When the next war breaks out
we will learn the result of the diligent secret experimentation in explosives, torpedoes, dynamite bombs
and nitroglycerine guns that has
been going on for several yean past
in the armories and laboratories df
Europe.:'. Tha Frenoh have been
particularly active in this business.
They want to kill their neighbors,
the Genrans, not by platoons, but
by   ,^rt«3t^^

Ek/ijprttr* i mile
of the polnt'OI eipheion." This
would not be wai-, aa we understand
the term; it would be destruction,
and it is not surprising to learn that
our army officers are opposed to the
> introduction' of air-guns and all the
new chemical explosives, on the
ground of barbarity. They have a
warm' affection for the familiar old
friend, gunpowder. It is associated
in their winds with stirring patriotic
history, long lieges, strategy, field
manoeuvre! and the genera), art of
war, to lay nothing of promotions
and increased pay. There would be
no military art in dynamite. Warfare with it woultl be unscientific
and awful .laughter. And yet there
is one merit in those- improved
agenti of destruction. They ara so
terrible that human nature oould
aot stand them—and they would
force governments to abandon war
entirely "and leek aome gentler and
more sensible method for the arbitrament of disputes. Nitre-glycerine may, prove to be a despotic
peacemaker.—"ft. Louis Republican.
The popular idea that the lake
oities of the United Statu are at
the merty. at a hostile Britiih fleet
saema to have induced Congressman
Lawler, of Chicago, to aik for information, The resolution which
he present! calls upon the secretary
of itate 'for hh aruwerto the question if by the treaty of Ghent the
United Statu 'are prevented from
maintaining an effective navy on
tht great lakes, and if the construction of the Wetland canal by Canada was not a violation of tbat
treaty, and, in case ot war between
England and America, a menace to
thb country. It will not take Hr.
Bayard long to reply to thete questions. Ai the treaties between the
United States and Great Britain
now stand neither is permitted to
keep un the great lakes mora than
one war vessel. .The ship which
the Amerioan government maintain! in these waters ii the Michigan, not a very formidable craft,
but quite .equal to anything which
the Canadian! have thought necessary to equip and certainly itrong
enough to oope with any adversary
likely to present itself in time of
peace. In. the event of war tbe
Holland Canal would be a menace
to tha lake cities, but about how
long does the gentleman from the
aecond district imagine it wuuld last
after a declaration of hostilities) It
would be blown sky-high in less
than twenty-four lioun after the
beginning pt tbe disturbance, The
construction of the canal wai not
ao muoh of a menace to the United
States ai'ihe erection of the great
forte at,!Halif»xand Viotoria, ond,
so far, ai violating the treaty of
Ghenthdoncerned, ita construction
wai no more in violation of that
agreemMit than wai the construction bi the itate of New York of
the Erie oanaL The Welland canal
hai been of inestimable value to
AmericMs as well as to Canadian!,
and it Will continue to be a benefit
to both nations. If far ihould
•ver ensue: the boyi of western 'New
York may be depended upon to
take the measure! necessary to make

1 Av^AP^ n9JPi Not long ago we mentioned that
a deputation of Indians from the
Northwfctt coast has arrived to in-
teryUs. jhj gonsrtn--e.it- and the
Indian sutf Itpidtnt on (ihe question! whiohBare for some time beon
diat|rtmj«rg tlre-ri:; -We learn that
two' Irrtervrews took placo, and a
report of both these interviews lias
been print*) Hnd issued by the government in pamphlet form. At the
first .interview there were present
Ho^i-Wra. Smithe, Hon. A. E. B.
Davie, Hon. jno. Robson, Dr. Powell, ane-^fl****!--. The Indians,
who, •ftjr'we way, seeiiied 'lio be intelligent, and to have a fair knowledge of public matters, stated their
grievances at considerable length,
and they were received most cour-
teouslyandiPat|tally heard tothe
end. From the statements of these
rami_, i]t) seems dear that they are
laboring under u misapprehension
with regard to their relationship to
the law sjhd the government, and
therei seems to be no real grievance
among theea tha^ eould ppt be easily
removed! They complained they
had' r^ieenjreated as free men, bnt
as slaves.' Tiiey had reserves as-
signed AtOj tbeui, but they had been
told.-jiillt • *h* posseision of these
reserves was not secure to them—
that whenejispr Ktjtt -pvemmeat; felt
so disposed It would take the land,
and' kjg, Is+lianD would be moved
off. They ulso coinplaiBed that the
reaetyMiWere., not large enough, and
that they had no timber suitable for
cano*s,'.or firewood, or for making
boxes for the bolachaus. The depu-
tatioi <**<J|s|3tjrtBi!wer| anxious
to lidopt the habits and customs of
th* white attar They did, not come
to ulc'for money, but to' ask for lib-
erty, ind for' the: *am6 privileges
that white men enjoyed. They had
been told Out an Indian oould not
take -ip lanjl like a white man, that
be oould h'ot take up a mining claim,
and thtt he must not cut timber ou
the. crtwn lands. One of them

ELECTORS
—OF—
New .Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:-I lmvo already unnoticed myself an a candidate for tlie neat
mndo vacant by the dcntU of our lato re-
im'sent-il ive, nud an no election han taken
Ijlnci! to till tlint vnenncy. I nnw nfter iny-
pelf ut tills, [lie Ui'iu-rnl Klectlon.
As it is my intoutlon to visit and hold
pulilic meetings In every settlement of
the district before election day, I Will
merely In thWinldress refer to tlie ill (l'er*
ent subjects that are vltnl to our Interests
nan district and province, which will tic
dtscuKsed at leiiKth on the public platform,
when I hope ull nsplrnnts for tun honor
of reprcHontlnc you In the Commons will
bo present and take pnrt in the discussion,
of which duo notice will bo given
Tho following urofloinn of the most jtn-
portaiit ijucst ions that will have my serious consideration:
Tin- liiiprnvcuientofllie NavlBatUn of
Fram>r River.'—The New Westminster
Bonrd of Trade hnve, with the usslsiunce
of our laic representative, been successful
in obtaining a small appropriation for
this purpose, which hns been expended
the past fall; and lt will bo the duty of
your representative toscouresuch annual
grunts ns wfll suffice to complete this Important work, which will en nble ships nf
the heaviest drought to navigate the Fra-
sor river at all stages of the tide, ami all
seasons of the year,
Hqnatlerri* Claims.—With reference to
this matter there has beon gross neglect
on the pnrt of the Dominiun Government,
nnd I am of tho opinion that those set*
tiers who located their land under Instructions from whnt is known' us Mr,
Trutch's pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto free of chnrgo-and the fuet
thnt settlers hnve been unable to secure
their titles litis acted very detrimentally
tothe Interests of the province generally,
and (If elected) I will bo .incensing In my
efforts to secure tho 'adjustment of ©Very
clnlm In the district.
Railway Boutli.—Anolher very Import*
nut mutter In connection with our dis*
trict Is railway connection with outweigh*
borssouth of the lino. Several charters
to connect this city nntl district with the
American systom of railways have been
granted by our locnl legislature, but wero
unfortunately disallowed by the Uomlnlon Government (doubtless through the
influence 6f the C„ V, It.) The position
hitherto held bythe Dominion House Is
now untenable, aud the monopoly elnuse
of the O. P. It. will have to bo dono away
with, shuuld this bo dono thore is no
renson why railway construction should
not commence ln tho near future, ns our
American cousins nro ready uud willing
to commence work ns snmi ns tho way Is
open. I need only say that I shall uso my
bust endeavor** to obtain said railway connection and the abolition of tho monopoly clause. ,      '• _•*. "i i
Hallway lirlrvnnecs.-Tlio C, P. R. have
maintained excessive rates for local traffic
ln this province nnd to points ns far oust
us Winnipeg, This Is not us It should he.
und Is onu of tho reasons why that great
corporation should be taught ihat Hi-*, not
thc only power In the land, but that It
must bo made siibstrvlcnt lo Ihe Interests
of the people.

To mnny of you, Gentlemen, who have
krown mo for a longtime. It Is nunecos-

of its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and

from actual experience, nnd will (If elected) enuble me to place prominently before Parliament, the grent resources of
this Province, and the means necessary
to bu employed to aid In their further

Itls impossible, Gentlemen. In nn nddress such ns this to do more thnn allude
to some of tho questions of Interest ond

I will, however,ouumerato a fow, matters
of great Importance to us all, In regard to

I nm aware, Gentlomen, that tho num*

LIKELY TO BE SUSTAIN BD.
\ NbwYoik, Feb. ft!.—The Tribune?*
Ottawa ipoclal says: Deep interest ii
befog created la federal elections whieh
take place to-morrow. Conservative!
express hopes of being sustained by a
greatly reduced majority. It Is likely
that the premier Sir John Macdonald
will lose 7 or 8 seats in Ontario with
worse prospects in the province of Que
beo where uie cry is raised over the execution of Louis Kiel, leader of the late
Northwest rebellion. The government
hopes, to gala seats lu New Brunswick
and one in Manitoba, Ito majority of 70
will be reduced to IA and it ls a possible
supposition that it will be swept away
entirely, Since tho arrival of Sir Chas,
Tupper. Canadian high commissioner,
the condition of affairs iu the maritime
provinces has greatly improved. He Is
appealing for support for oir John on the
ground that the latter urged a generous
polioy with reference to the fisheries.
AFRAID THE TRADR WltL GO TO B.C.

Washington special Pays: Claud Speckles
arrived yesterday. Mr. Speckles is very
much interested lu securing an allowance
'for mall servico of ships owned by him
engaged in Australian and New Zealand
trade... these veuielH are granted.a subsidy by the colonial governments and
there Is every indication that the Britisli
government will offer to give a bounty to
ships sailing front Viotoria. In that
event Mr. Speukels thinks this trade will
go froni San Francisco to British Columbia, He informed the president of the
situation but' he has no hope that congress will take any action in the matter
at its present session.
