Current Events and Opinions.
Mr. Blako's indictment of the Gov*
erment in tho North-West Rebellion is ii strong one. If tlio grievances, being known to exist, hnd
been removed in 1884, Riel's power
would not have grown to such a
height, nnd no robellioft would have
taken pluce. The rebellion was a
direct outcome of the incapacity,
jobbery, and corruption that reigns
universal in the affairs ofthe North-
West — perhaps unavoidably incident tothe establishment of a wealthy
corporation so closely connected with
tlie government, and to the patron*
agu the opening of half a continent
throws into government hands. Mr.
Blake held a brief for the country
at the last session of parliament,
and he did his duty; but he could
do little more than lodge his plea.
It was too late for discussion, because the house waB wearied by
the protracted session, and unfit to
cope with the subject; it was also
too early, because no ono was well-
informed on the subject. It is now
for him, with fuller information, to
bring" his plaint again before the
house: and this should bo the main
business of the coming session A
rebellion against real or fancied injustice has taken place in a part of
Canada altogether under the government of Conservative appointees;
and whether the charges brought
against some of theso be true or
not, it is impossible for the country
in the circumstances to close the
page and say it will read no further.
Tho fullest investigation into every
circumstance preceding and attending (he rebellion must be had before
the Conservntivo party will be
purged of the suspicion that now
attaches to it; nnd if this be not
accorded promptly and frankly, so
much the worse in the long run for
tbo Conservative party. It is useless for the party press to attempt
to raise a false issuo through the
Riel agitation. The question before
the country is not all the execution
of Riel, but tho causes that produced the rebellion he headed. It
is satisfactory to learn that Mr.
Blnko does not contemplate a retirement from the leadership of the
Liberal party. In Mr. Blake it
possesses a leader who stands almost
alone among Canadian statesmen
for high principle and character;
and at this conjuncture it is precisely such qualities that are most
needed. To such a timn the lower
side of politics cannot but be distasteful, and he tells us that he dislikes and does not wish for office.
But, although this unwillingness
springs froin un honorable scrupulousness, it is regrettable, for it is
not an attitude of mind suitable to
the leader of a great party. Not
so do successful leaders inspire their
followers and seize victory. Yet,
perhaps, the enthusiasm will come
with the occasion.—The Week (Independent).
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
Oh Monday considerable discus-
sion arose out of some remarks
made by Mayor Fell at a public
meeting, in whioh he charged members of the legislature with corruption. Messrs. Martin, Galbraith,
Orr, Grant, Theo. Davie, Hon. Mr,
Smithe, Hon. Mr. Kobson, aud Hon.
Mr. Davie, denounced Mr. Fell as a
slanderer, and somo members wore
disposed to prosecute him for libel.
—Tho Port Simpson land "grab"
came up again for debate. Hon.
Mr. Smithe explained anew the circumstances of the case, that the
trouble all arose out of the neglect
of the surveyor-general to announce
through the Otr.etle that tho roservo
had been removed. This was simply
au oversight, and the government
had given no information to its
frionds to enable them to take advantage of knowledge which was
withheld from tho public. It wits
pointed out that a very similar
omission occurred under the late
government, but that government
was not charged with criminal intent—Mr. Beaven moved for copies
of "all correspondence, tenders, accounts and vouchors in connection
with supplying vitrified drain pipes
for tho new gaol ot Now Westminster, stating size of pipe for which
tonders were asked, size and quantity supplied, prico per foot, name
of contractor, quantity of pipe used,
disposition of pipe not rcquirad, the
name of the superintendent of tho
work of constructing tlio gaol, and
by whom recommended to the government," In making this motion
Mr. 'Beaven said tho information
was required by the people of New
Westminster, us it wus understood
that a contract had been taken by
n member of the house, which wns
contrary to the Independence of
Parliament act. Thoro wus an
opinion prevailing that this act had
been repealed, but tho part repealed
wus only that which related to mom-
British Columbian.
VOLUME *29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. #C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1886.
NUMBER 17
bers of the house receiving money
from tho Dominion government,
After some observations from Messrs.
Orr, Davie, and Semlin, Mr. Cunningham said this was the second
attempt of tho leader of the opposition to involve him. He had been
asked to supply the pipe by contract, but declined, and afterwards
agreed with tho government to order the pipe and collect a commission of 5 per cent. The pipe cost
over $700, and all his firm made
out of the transaction was %'dli,-~
Bills were introduced to incorporate
the Vancouver Electrio Light Co.,
the Vancouver Street Railway Co.,
and to amend the Qualification and
Registration of Voters act,—In
answer to Mr. Allen, Hon, Mr.
Robson said Mr. J. F, Smith, of
Clinton, had not passed an examination as teacher since August 1860.
Oq Tuesday, Mr. Cunningham moved
a resolution expressing the cordial
thanks of the house to the Canadian
volunteers who took part in quelling
the north-west rebellion. Mr. Galbraith seconded the motion, congratulated the mover, and expressed himself as thoroughly in accord with the
resolution. It was carried unanimously.
—Mr. Semlin moved the second reading of the bill to regulate the legal
profession. Hon. Mr. Davie opposed
the bill beoause he considered it in the
public interest that persons should be
required to reside a year in the pro*
vince beforo being admitted to tbe bar.
While the present aot prevented lawyers of good standing froni)1 other provinces from practising hen without a
year's residence, it mast be remembered that a British Columbia lawyer
could not practice in Ontario without
complying with the regulations of the
Ontario law society. Before'admitting
a man to practice here it was but reasonable to require of him a knowledge
of our laws and practices, which could
be acquired only by resident study.
The appointment of provincial judges
lay with the Dominion, but the judges
must be taken from the provinoial bar.
Unless a residence waa required it
would be possible for outsiders to come
here with judgeships in their pockets,
and no knowledge whatever of provincial laws.—Mr. Beaven was in favor of
encouraging immigration, and did not
think a stated period of residence necessary for lawyers.—Mr. Drake opposed the bill fur reasons similar to
those advanced by Hon. Mr, Davie.
A person newly arrived in the province, however high he may stand in
hiB profession, is not qualified to advise on points of provincial law unless
ho has mado a study of our statute
books.—Messrs. MoTavish and Dunsmuir spoke against the bill, Mr. Mc
Tavisli moving the six months hoist,
Mr. Pooley, Hon. Mr. Robson, Hon.
Mr. Smitho, Mr. Cunningham, and
Mr. Theo. Davie spoke aiming t the
bill, and Messrs. Allen, Orr, Grunt,
Galbraith, McLeese, and Raybould iu
favor of it. A vote was taken on the
amendment, proposing 0 months hoist,
which was carried on following division:
Ayes: McTavish, T. Davie, Smithe,
RobBon, A. R B. Davie, Martin, Dunsmuir, Dingwall, Wilson, Drake, Cunningham, Pooley, John—13, Noes:
Beaven, Allen, Galbraith, Orr, McLeese, Cowan, Helgesen, Grant, Semlin, Raybould, Duck—II.
Mr. Cunningham moved for a return
showing all correspondence and public
transactions between the government
of the province and the members of
this house sinco they wero elected,
with a list of goods supplied by them,
work done, prices paid or to be paid,
contracts made, oither written or verbal, with a statement of any contracts
with the government to which any of
the aaid members became bundsmen.
True Basis or Civil Government
The Holy Spirit, in Hii subjection
to both Father and Son is another
beautiful example. He shows us with
what spirit nil our divinely appointed
duties to God, to each other and to
the stato should be performed—to the
glory of the great author of civil government—done as unto tho Lord; to
be subject to principalities and powers,
to obey magistrates, and to be ready
for any good work, Tit. 3:1, For the
magistrate "heareth not thu word in
vanity, for rulers are not a terror to
good works, but to the evil, Rom.
13:1*7; "and for the praise of them
that do well, 1 Pet. 2:14. Here we
have the official supremacy of tho
Father, who sends his only begotten
Son into tho world to restore order
and save rebellious man. Here wa
have tho amnziiig coudeaoiisiun of the
Son, who, though equal with (lie
Father, promptly obeys his ollicial
authority and takes upon himself to
suffer and die in our stead that we
might not perish. "He learned obedience by the things which ho suffered,"
Hob. 5:8; and "was obedient unto
death," Phil. S:8, aud that obedience
included filial, civil, and mediatorial
laws, self-imposed for the common
good. Hero wc have the Holy Spirit,
though equal with the Father and Son,
yet becomes obedient unto the latter
as an ambassador tu teach aud preserve the truth among the nations;
and is still engaged in his official work
of enlightening, comforting) purifying,
and qualifying immortal souls for sharing tho divine glory. Hero we have
for the sake of order a beautiful example of ruler, subject, and subordinate, not among inferiors, but among
equals, Such a sublime example is
worthy of the Eternal Threo, and fully
establishes the fact that order is
Heaven's lirst law.
Wo have seen that Elohim are subject to law and perfect in obedience.
As rational creatures and subjects of
God's moral government wo must have
law iu order to the protection of persons, proporty, and the pursuit of happiness, L.iw implies a government
and law-makors; the latter implies an
iisscmbly of legislators. Government
Implies rulers, as king, nucon, president, or governor; aiul eiooutive
oflicers, as judges, aht'i-itl's and constables. Rules implies subjects or peoplo, for whom* protection, security,
prosperity, end general welfare tho
Kovurumetit is established Siibjoots
tin not necessarily imply inferiors,

] Sal an lay Morning, Feb. Ml, 1880.
•The policy of the provincial op-
isition jusb now seems to be ono
.! desperate assault. Scarcely a
'iy passes in which some fresh
jiarge is not made in tho house
gainst the government or its sup-
brters. Many of thesu charges arc
S extremely frivolous that one
iai'veU nt tlie persons who make
hem. But wliere a great deal of
)ud is thrown, some of it is apt to
tick; and if mud does not stick to
lie government now, it is certiynly
»ot because thero has not been
•nough thrown. It is to be wished
!hut wherever a reasonable ground
xists for suspecting crookedness,
he fullest investigation should tako
[lace; but most of the accusations
brought by the opposition during
he present session have fraud
-tumped upon the face of them.
It is estimated that the Ohinese
mrn every year by their labor in
ilie state of California $24,000,000.
The argument that they send $'20,-
)00,000 of it home and do not
spend it in carousing is one of the
cliief arguments used against them.
Other nationalities have l*en coui-
luended for doing just what we condemn in these heathens. Every
year for an entire generation "the
old folks at home" in Ireland have
received generous millions from the
honest boys and girls who have
sought homes in America.—Chicago
Inter-Ocean. In this paragraph our
Chicago cotemporary insults every
Irishman, and furnishes proof that
it is profoundly ignorant on the
Chinese question. There are no
people more welcome in this country than respectable Irishmen who
do not "carouse/' and none are
more detested than the Chinese.
Out or Tunc.
Our usually gentle and always
reasonable cotemporary df the Guar-
d'tim Wjiist;nowrgraspitiB it political straws. Scarcely an incident
happens in the house whieh he does
not seize upon and misrepresent in
the hope, apparently, that some person may harbor the suspicion that
there is rottenness in the government or its supporters. In its issue
of Wednesday the organ makes itself foolUh in,.nn attempt to ridicule Mr. Cunningham's motion of
thanks to the Canadian' volunteers.
After saying several very contemptible things, It characterises the
resolution as disgraceful to the
legislature. "The wliole affair,"
says the organ, "is so thoroughly
contemptible thnt we shall not be
surprised to learn that the motion
was rejected with indignation," Our
cotemporary muBt have been somewhat surprised, then, when the
legislature passed Mr. Cunningham's
motion unanimously. It was seconded by Mr. Galbraith, deputy
leader of the opposition, who congratulated Mr. Cunningham upon ic
and declared tliat it met with Ins
cordial endorsement Tlie organ is
evidently out of tune even with the
party it pretends to represent, In-
deed, it seems to have become an
organ merely for the expression of
the folly of its own editor.
Objects to the Light.
,        On the 17th inst. we published
extracts from an article in the Victoria Posl relating to tho Kootenay
bill.     That  article   was   founded
chiefly upon statements made by
Mr. Theo.  Davie at the Victoria
meeting, und it brought out iu very
plain  light tlie salient features of
the transaction wliich tlie opposition
organs  have been howling about as
a "uive away."   Our local cotemporary seems quite broken up because of the exposure of his misrepresentations   contained   in  this
article.    He declares that the iniquity of  the   Kootenay bill will
"soon be exhibited  in all its ugliness," and adds :  "It remained for
the miserable government now in
power and its equally miserable organs to drag all those who assisted
them  with their votes, before the
light of public opinion.    Anything
more dishonorable and unmanly we
have rarely met with."   This is one
of the most remarkable declarations
we ever remember to have seen in a
newspaper, and it leads one to suspect tbat our ootemporary's "inter-
.   nal calculus" has got out of order
again.    If there is any iniquity in
tlie Kootenoy bill, doea our cotemporary imagine that the names of
the members of its owu party who
supported it are going to be suppressed, so as to permit the whole
onus of the measure to rest upon
—-J-— ^M-dHt-fiawt     artA    thk,    fflttllriltj,
This is precisely what tbe orgnn has
been persistently endeavoring to do;
but when its dishonesty is being exposed, it pronounces thoso dishonorable and unmanly who have put the
responsibility of the Kootenay bill
exactly wliere it belongs. It has
been stated already that the Kootenay bill was not a government
measure, but a private bill introduced by Mr. Pooley, as may be
learned by referent's to the Journals
for 18S3. In the final vote it was
supported by Messrs. Beaven, Galbraith, Grant, Armstrong, Semlin,
and McLcose, every one of whom
belongs to tho political party to
which the Guardian belongs. Now,
thc Guardian pronounces tho Kootenay bill outrageously bad, and calls
upon tin; electors to defeat the government for passing it. But if the
government is defeated, and the
organ's friends succeed to office, it
is clear that the very same charge
would Ho against them; for both
tho leader (Mr. Beaven) and tlie
deputy-leader (Mr. Galbraith) actively supported the Kootenay bill,
and so did at least four other members of the party. Is it "dishonorable and unmanly" to make public
the fact that the Kootenay cry of
tho organ against tlie government
is the most empty and transparent
kind of misrepresentation 1 Our
claim is this: (1) that tlie Kootonay
bill is not a bud measure, and (2)
that if it were bad the responsibility
of it rests upon both sides of the
house, and it is "dishonest and unmanly" for either party to shirk
that responsibility. The organ's
object is to hide the truth : our wish
is to bring the whole facts "beforo
the light of public opinion."

The Cowichan Murder.
Cowichan, Feb. 23. — Sume excitement waa caused to-day by a report
that a strange Indinn aud kloutohman
havo been soen prowling in the woods
back of here. What is peculiar about
them is that they have been, approached by several parties and in every case
they retreated and in one instance of
another Indian approaching to speak
to them the man put his gun in a
threatening position. -■ The stranger is
described aa a large man with a beard
and aa carrying an old musket. Thc
Siwash who saw them aays he is suro
they don't belong to this tribe and
that they are the murderers uf Dring
and Miller. Constable Kier haa beeu
looking for the strangers all day; but
up to the present time lie haa failed
to tind them. This evening Mr. Kier
received a verbal message from Mr.
Druminond, of Maple Bay, tu come to
his house, that he had made some important discovery in regard to tha
murder. It is hoped they have found
something that will give some clue.
Cowiuhan, Feb. 24.—In compliance
with the request of Mr. Drummond,
Constable Kier want tu Maplo Bay today and, contrary lo hia expectations,
obtained what is thought to be a good
due to tho Miller-Driug murder, ltijt
trail about a mile back from the scene
of the murder they have fuund a dead
dog. Its feet were tied with withea
and its brains have been battered out
with a stone. It is thought the du£
belonged tu tho murderers and had foi-
lowed them while on the way to perform the diabolical deed. Failing tu
drivo it baok and fearing it might frustrate their plana by making tt noise
thiv killed it by. battering uut ita
brains. If the dog belonged to the
mirdtrera, they uoduifttediy art resident*1 Of Cowichan, and the settlers
reel Very uneasy to think that wt havt

Nothing haa beeu aneu to-day of the
two mysterious Indiana aaid tu have
been prowling about in the woods.
From Granite Oreek.
The following extractB from a letter
written by Mr. Donald McGregor to u
gentleman in this city will be found uf
interest to our readers. It is dated at
Granite Creek, Feb. 1st: "All mining
operations, ub far as taking out money
is concerned, are suspended fur tho
winter, and there is no money in circulation, which makes things quite
dull. The city is growing rapidly,
however, and new buildings are going
on continually. Merchants and others
are making extensive preparations fur
the spring, as it is expected there will
be a great rush of peoplo here auuii.
At preseut thero are 0 stores, 10
licensed liquor houses, and 3 restaurants, nnd several more of each are in
course of construction. I havo no
doubt but there will be lively times
here ua soon us work begins un the
claims; but tho lower portion uf the
creok will U'-t last longer than tliis
summer, consequently the hope of the
place iB in the upper portion, or what
ia called the "south fork." That portion, howevor, has not yet been prospected) There aro parties prospering
on the south fork this winter, but
none of them have done enough Ms
determine the character of tho ground.
They have found a little gold hore and
there. One of them found a nugget
worth 99 a few hundred yards from a
claim iu which I have au interest, and
which some uf the most experienced
minera consider the must likely portion
of tho south fork. There is a good
deal of prospecting going on on other
creeks. Scarcely a week passes without some new excitement and a general
stampede fur the reported discoveries;
hut the weather has been too severe to
permit much progress in prospecting
open diggings. All that cnu safely be
said nuw ia that thero is Borne gold in
several uf them. We have had about
0 weeks of pretty cold weather, the
coldest being about 30° below zero.
Pack trains are still coining in via
Nicola, but there have been no trains
from Hope for some time, This is
quite embarrassing to somo people who
have supplieB stored at Hope and aro
anxious tn get them in as soon as possiblo. Whon the Hope-Similkameen
trail becomes passable, goods can bo
gut in by it much cheaper than by
Nicola. The weather now is turning
mild, and some of the companies will
probably begin soon to take out gold.
Men are beginning to come in already.
Some have arrived from old Cariboo,
and more of thom will be hore soon;
and they are much needed, as they are
prime authority on mining matters;
ahd I might add that their opinion is
muoh respected here. In May or June
we expect a flood that will put a stop
to mining operations for a short time
ou Granite Creek; but we hope to gat
two or three months'work in before
the flood comes. Favorable prospects
have been found on Cedar nnd Slate
creeks, but neither of them has been
thoroughly tesled. I am under the
impression that provisions will be dear
until the Hope trail ia fit for pack
trains, and it would be a pity if any
rush ahould take place before that
time, as it would cost a groat deal to
live and there would be very little
work."
Several noblemen in England arajn
the habit of giving special ordors to makers in Virginia for their supply of smoking tobacco. There is no doubt that by
that means they gut the very best tobacco to be had, but it costs them $2 a
pound. The workingmen of Canada are
smoking the very same quality of tobacco
at 60 cents a pound, and it is known to
them by the name of "Myrtle Navy."

It Is related that when Thebaw and

than that?

City council.
Council met on Wednesday night,
members all present. A communication was received from A. J. Hill, C.E..
offering his services as inspecting engineer on the proposed branch railway.
Also, from H. J. Cambic, C.E., stating
that plans nnd book of reference respecting thu branch would be completed that day. Tenders for advertising
were received from the Guardian ofllce
at 0 ots. per line for first insertion and
1 ct for subsequent insertions. From
Tub Columbian office the following
letter waa received, addressed to the
clerk:
Sin.—In reply to yours of this day,
asking tenders for "printing bylaws and
all other work iu the shape of printing
done for the council for the first six
months of the year 1866," we have to
■ay that it would be utterly impossible
for any person to tender intelligently upon such specifications. The resolution
does not propose any basis whatever upon
-which te form an opinion as to the kind
or extent ef the work tbat would be required under it. If the counoil were to
ask tenders for all street improvements
for six months, without specifying what
improvements were contemplated, tho
proposal would be quito as intelligible as
tho one new submitted, When it has
been specified exactly what printing is to
be done, we ahall be happy to put in a
tender, but we cannot tender on the
specifications now given. With respect
to advertising, the council must kuow
that we have over and over again refused
to tender for that, and the grounds of
our refusal are well enough known to
the printing committee. It is not usual
to ask tenders for advertising, because it
is well known that there is a very wide
difference between different newspapers
jas to circulation and influence, and these
are the data upon which the valuo of advertising must be estimated. It would
be manifestly absurd to ask a newspaper
with 1000 of a circulation to tender Tor
advertising against one with a circulation ot 500 when the contract would go
to the lowest tender. Taking circulation
as the basis upon which to estimate the
value of advertising (and it is undoubtedly the true basis, other things being
equal), an advertisement iu a newspaper
with 1000 circulation would be worth
twice as much as an advertisement In a
paper with a circulation of 500. Wo
must, therefore, decline, as we have always declined, to tender for corporation
advertising. The proposal we have made
to the printing committee seems to us
fair and equitable, aud one that would
show np partiality to any printing establishment, It ie to divide tbe advertising
for the year fairly between the city newspapers, with the condition that the advertisements be set in a specified sho ot
type, and charged at current rates. The
advertising could be allotted by the
clerk, the mayor, the printing committee
or any other person or committee who
had no personal interest in its distribution: and we havo no ground for appro*
hondiog that this could not bo accomplished in a very satisfactory way to ail
Sartiee. The printing could easily be
one by tenders asked for eaoh job, the
clerk to have authority to ask for tend*
ers and award the contractu. These suggestions aru respectfully submitted for
tlio consideration of the counoil, as it is
not possible to tender for the work na

Disturbance In Surrey.
Kniron Columiuan.-It is thought by
tho public generally, and I rather thiuk
myself, that the Surrey correspondent ia
a little too personal with hia nonsensical
aohool-boy items, He Ib like a person in
tbe ocean on the eveof drowning, and
is grasping at every little thing that
comes within his. reacii to try to keep
himself up. The correspondent is going
further than within his reach, and is
writing items which, if. he was attending
to his own business, and not interfering
with the public, he would get along better in Surrey, Hoping he will reform a
little in future,—Yours truly,

have a hearing before thc senate committee on commeice in a few days. The
principal charge against Beecher is that,
while running the steamboat Evangel,
lie embezzled $5000 thot was entrusted
to him to deliver. When the president
learned of the nature of the charge he at
once summoned Beecher to Washington
to auswor the accusation. A committee
ia now waiting for papers to arrive from
Port Townsend that are needed in the
investigation of the case. Beecher treats
the charge with scornful contempt, and

he would have been arrested and tried

NbwYurk, Feb. 22,—The Mail mod
Exp} ess publishes tbe following interview
with Chinu Hoy, Chinese consul in thiB
city, bansetl on the St. Louis dispatch
miyii'g that the Chinese imperial government contemplates retaliatory measures
on account of the treatment accorded to
Chinese subjects iu this country: "I can*
not'say I nm advised that an Imperial
proclamation has beon Issued, compelling
nil Chinamen in this country to return
homej but I can say tho consul-general
at San Francisco has sent notices ad vis-
Ipg.d-Lghlnamen to leave. Whether the
goveffiment is back of this I cannot say.
>s;to the suggestion of retaliation, I have
no doubt measures.of this kind will be
taken Ity our government If Chinamen
are driven out and outraged here. Why
can't our people drive out all Americans
from China? The good name of this
country haa been disgraced by recent
outrages, and the question has become
vory serious, There ts no protection to
Chinamen at all; but American merchants and missionaries are all well treated in China, and the government takes
prompt action, not only paying damages,
but redressing wrong dene. What f do
not understand Is why tbe good people
of the Eaat here remain silent. It certainly was not the intention of congress
that merchaqfs and others should be
treated in this way. If nothing ia done
the commerce between the two countries,
amounting to 920,000,000 annually, will
be destroyed,"
London, Feb. 23,—Lord Roaeherry,
Foreign Secretary, has received from Sir
Horace Rumbold, British Minister at

that Premier Delay-Annis will prepare a
protest to the powers that Greece submits only to force.

New York, Feb. 2fl.- A Western blizzard has reached New Vork. The mercury has fallen 20 degrees in the past few
hours, and streets that were deluged by
rain yesterday are covered with ice today. The wind ia blowing a gale, and it
is with' the greatest difficulty that telegraphic connections can be maintained
with either the east or the south. The
sea in tho bay is unusually high, and
it is feared that the gale will prove
almost as disastrous to shipping aa the

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO &0RCAH CO.
Speaking of the great central exhibition opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of Bpecial attention, which
by very reason ot its prominence ou the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company, This iB a separate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Maui Building. This pavilion must be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
Jb handsomely painted, witli ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height iu windows,
and announces to all iu broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of US Kim; street
West, represents the company. Inside
uo pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit the Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music. Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, aud above alt, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs,
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers. Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at the extreme
end as he enters this pavilion. For company are orgaus of every stylo aud design to suit the purchaser. The Company ahw-exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact iB worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing* that at a Grsud
National Exhibition held there the Company had just carried off' the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. Tho exhibit on the grounds is
ocrtaiuly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper ou Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ and I'iano Company
at the opening of the London Fair. In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the grent impe
tus Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit t at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ and I'iano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that the
Instruments of this company were snpe-
riftr to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from auch a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content,

etico   tlie   obligations   uf   those   in
ithotiiy.   It is the imperative duty
civil government tu appoint only
ich idlieois who are wise, prudent,
'most, and, if possible, truly in har*
ouy with the -.livine author of such
)vernment,   Nut a few riots, revolu-
■ms, and civil wurd arise from the up*
iintmoiifc of bad, imprudent, or dis-
jualiticd persons to otlice; appointed
Imply because they arc political par-
Izana, a broken-down politician, an
wid vent business man, sonic one too
\iy to ©uru a living by manual labor,
v some one possessed of nioie anibi-
iun than good principles or common
ense.   This is wrong, foolish, wicked,
ind treason ngainst the divine author
if civil government, and the best in-
erests of the people; and all the con-
icquences of the crime, the suitoring,
:he blood, uud the loss ot life that re-
Iliulta from such wicked appointments
must be accounted for before a tribunal
from which there is no appeal or
escape. There no crime will be glossed
over, for the graud jury will weigh
every case in thc scales uf truth,
equity, and purity, aud give their verdict accordingly. There the criminal
cannot be bailed out nf the hands uf
inflexible justice; he muat stand hia
trialt listen to his sentence, and receive
his doom. The higher iu ollicial
authority, the greater the guilt. The
indictment of all criminals at the bnv
of Cod will contain three counts: the
evil dono, the consequent accumulative, destructive influences on others,
und the good neglected to be done.
As a man is known by the company
he keeps, or the character of the books
[ he generally prefers to read, so is a
government" judged by the appointments it cholines*, to make. There is
no room fur question here. If bad appointments ara made the government'
lose? the respect nnd confidence of the
great majority of citizens, both good''
and bad, but especially tbe good.
And if it neglects or refuses to cancel
such appointments when brought to its
notico, it continues to sink in the
estimation of those whono confidence
it ought to be ambitious tu possess.
The civil government ought to suppress by all means in its power everything that injures ur degrades the people or any part uf them; and it ought
tu encourage whatever is calculated to
promote the general good of all.   This
is God's design iu instituting civil government, and ho who neglects to use
liis influence in securing the best interests of his country is verily guilty
before God.   Let all branches of tho
guvernment, as well as  the  people,
study and imitate  the beautiful examples and models set before ub hy the
Father, Son, ami   H»ly  Spirit, the
divine authors of all civil government,
then may we expect to realize the in*
c-U'muble value uf freedom, the wealth
of prosperity, uud the nublima glories
of Christianity; but   not   till then.
Divorce Christianity from civil government and what moral havoc, civil dis-
urdur. and anarch*]- is (he fearful to
sult!  Let the nation dismiss the Ore*
tor from the country he has made, and
the government he hae instituted, and
we nre ready for another Frenoh revolution, characterized by the most infernal excesses and dyed with rivers of
blood! To commit treason against the
king of kim-s is to sign our own death
warrant, and call all the demons of the
lower depths to assist in our exoction!
Civil government was not originally
designed tn bo a political foot-ball to
be kicked hither and thither au the
caprices and corruption of politicians
dictate.   It is a sacred institution, and
ought to  be hu regarded.    In writing
tlm above paper, I claim no originality
(the term original ia sonietimos applied
in ideas that arc now to nn individual,
though thousand* before lum mny have
had precisely the annio idea; but more
definitely to   those   ideas   that have
hover been made known before so far
as is known.    What is new to humanity, in this sense is truly original),
having only condensed the scattered
rays of light from various sources, and
concentrated them upon n subject of
vital interest  to the people, that they
may seo more clearly the divine authors
of civil government, its very great importance, the grand design of Its institution, and that good citizenship implies obedience to civil laws made in
harmony, implied or expressed, with
divine law.   It is true that u farmer's
life does not favor literary pursuits, having to do a littlo now and a little then,
as circumstances permit; but I think
tbe beat minds in Christendom will
approve of the position taken in this
paper.   If  it should aid any uf its
readers   in   obtaining  more correct
viewa, I ihall bo well repaid.
Ww. Kbnt, M.D.
your correspondent written in thc per-
sounl, vindictive manner which he
does m the issue of the 20th inat. Ho
seems determined to breed discord and
strife between the several settlements
comprising tbis municipality. He certainly reveals the true inwardness of
his wandering propensities. I would
suggest that your correspondent, and
those of the inhabitants of the prairie
who are in such a Btate of confident
expectancy, take up a subscription,
purchase material and finish the schuot
house and wash the lime and other
stains from the floor. Thus they will
have the satisfaction uf knowing they
have performed, if not a patriotio, at
least an act that is calculated to improve the sanitary cmditiou of tho
school bouse. In regard to what is
said of Mr. Jones, I believe Mr. Jonu*
is in overy way a most desirable settlor
aud one'deserving of our sympathy
aud encouragement. Iu regard to another reputed "jumping" case the facts
are as follows: Mr. Kickbuah, finding
be cuuld not fulfil the conditions of
settlement required by law, and being
a gentlemen who is desirous uf seeing
the country developed, gave Mr. Starr
permission tu go ou to the locution and
occupy tho same. I only wish partius
in this neighborhood ware us willing
to assist in tho settlement and improvement uf our wild lands. Your correspondent also evinces an ultnost
paternal interest in Mr. H. Laidlaw's
personal welfare, with what object,
pray, Mr. Wanderer? It will, perhaps,
be gratifying tu learn that the bridgo
will be placed un the rivor bo that
Mr. L. will have the benefit of the
samo. Now in regard tu myself, there
need be no rumor as to my action. I
have never made any secret as to what
1 believe the future of iIub Surrey uf
ours will be, i.e., that it is destined to
become the premier district of B.C.,
aud whether I am clerk of the municipality or mil, su lung us I know of one
quarter section of laud tbat jb vacant,
and will support n family, so long will
I endeavor to induce settlers to locate
thereon. It shall never be a part of
my policy* to prevent settlement
through gross and selfish misrepresentation, and virtually drive some of
the most desirable settlors away fur
selfish ends. No, sir, I believe this is
a country to be desired, and if not at
present blooming, in tho near future
its development will surprise a great
many, Mr. Wanderer included. In
regard to the unwarranted criticism of
Mr. Huck, that gentleman is an enterprising business man, bo far as Iub
meanB will allow. His store (let it be
Waterloo, ur Rocky Point, or what not)
has beeu a great convenience tu the
settlers iu tbe neighborhood, and Mr.
Wanderer may depend that Mr. Huck
will keep up with the requirements of
bia business, whether he has two, three,
or thirty tons of merchandise on the
way. Furthor, Mr. H. is a business
man who attends to his own business.
He has no idea of carrying such a revolution in business circles as that predicted by your correspondent. By the
way the cabin jumping at Elgin, so
far as I can learn, is simply a fabrication of Mr. Wanderer's, and has no
foundation in fact. In conclusion, Mr.
Editor, I woultl remind ynu of an editorial that appeared iu the Columiuan
a little uver twu years ago. You said
respecting the correspondence then
going on from Surrey, "When will it
stop r I beg to suggest the same question fur your consideration at tho present time; for certainly such correspondence as that which has appeared from Surrey, in the Columiuan, in
recent issues, is not calculated to promote thc well-being of any community.
