current Events and Opinions.
Th6 Mussulmans of India go in
thousands every year to Mecca,
where, being comparatively wealthy,
they aro greatly liked and most outrageously fleeced. Tlie government
of India cannot help that, but it
can stop the frightful misery endured by the pilgrims in tlieir voyage in rotten Arab dhows across
the Arabian Sea, and up the Bed
Sea to Joddah. They are often
packed like slaves) half-fed, and fre
quently wrecked, and the consequent loss of life is enormous. The
Indian government has accordingly
taken control of the pilgrimages,
and has contracted with Messrs.
Oook and Oompany, the well-known
English contractors for tourists, to
convey all pilgrims in steamers to
Jeddah, feed thein properly, and
carry them back to India in safety.
The act is a very kindly though odd
thing for the government to do; and
will, no doubt, ho welcomed by its
Mussulman subjects.—-The Week.

VOLUME 29
NEW  WESTMINSTER, E 0., SATURDAY, MAROH 27, 1886.
NUMBER 25
The liberation of Poundmaker
and his companions is an admission
that the government did wrong in
sending tlicm to the penitentiary.
If they were guilty of rebellion,
rapino. and murder the punishment
they have endured during the few
months of their imprisonment was
wholly inadequate to such crimes.
If they were not guilty of these
great crimes they should not have
lieen convicted, or having been convicted, they should not have been
sent to the penitontiary. We have
always thought that Poundmaker
deserved not punishment but rewards and thanks. It was known
that ho liad great inlluence with
more than one band of Indians, niid
that if he rebelled hundreds would
follow his example. He remained
on his roservo. On Ms reserve he
and his people were attacked. Tlio
evidence seemed to show Unit
Poundmaker took no part in tho
tight, and there is little room lo
doubt that he prevented the Indians
from following up their success and
so saved tho lives of many volunteers on their retreat. Tho evidence
that ho understood tho meaning of
the letters sent to him by Riel, or
of the replies written in liis name,
was by no means conclusive. If
the release of Poundmaker does not
prove that tho government ara now
satisfied of his innocence, it must
be accepted es an admission on
the part of the government that
the provocation given to Halfbreeds
und Indians by misgovernment and
negleot, nnd by tho misconduct of
Mr. Dewdney and his subordinates,
was so great thut rebellion was nob
in their case a crime deserving very
severe punishment.—Globe.
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
Tho proceedings in the house
lately have been somewhat lively,
especially during the debate on the
Vancouver incorporation bill. The
people of Granville petitioned for
the incorporation, naming the new
town "Vancouver." The area asking for incorporation embraced
about 5,000 ncrca. A long and
very warm debuto took place, in
which Messrs. McTavish, Dingwall,
T. Davie, Beaven, and some others,
spoke strongly against adopting tbo
name suggested, because, they said,
it would lead to embarrassment
and confusion. Tlio provincial secretary made a vigorous defence of
the name, pointing out reasons
which he professed to see why it
was especially appropriate to the
terminal oity. Ke mentioned also
thut the 0. P. li. syndicate had
already issued maps whereon the
now name appeared, and had advertised ovor nearly the whole world.
He intimated that tbe opposition to
the bill aroau from a feeling of jealousy and sectionalism on the part of
island members, who feared the
eflects of a rival city on tho mainland. Tito provincial secretary
spoko with so much warmth and
energy tbat he brought nearly the
whole house on him, several moin-
bers declaring that he had made
threats which llioy wero bound to
rosent. This ho denied, and the
debato became so hot that it was
thought best to adjourn it until the
temper of tho house had time to
cool down. Tho Vancouver tramway bill, and some otlicr unimportant bills woro advanced a stage.
The mineral amendment bill was
taken up. Hon. Mr. Kobson said
he was disappointed at not finding
a provision in favor of persons who
discovered lodes or veins. He
thought those who made valuablo
discoveries of this kind should be
rewarded either by securing extra
ground or getting a casli bonus. Mr.
Orr thought a clause should lie inserted to prevent Ohinamen from
locating mining claims. Hon. Mr.
Davie considered the suggestion absurd.   He did not believo Ohina
men had either ithe money or the
brains to work minerals. Mr. On-
expressed surpriss at such a declaration, and said that some of the
most valuable ledges in tha province might fall into the hunds of
these poople. Mr. Ounninghum
said he was ashamed of our so-called
civilization as exhibited in the unreasonable length to which antipathy to Ohinese had been carried.
He intimated that there were Ohinamen not a whit worse than some
wliite men. He had never seen a
Ohinamnn drunk on tbe street, but
he had seen many a white man in
that condition. Hon, Mr. Robson
did not altogether agree with the
last speaker. He was in favor of
legislation being so directed as to
make it desirable for Ohinese to
leave the country. As to the ques
tion of Christian charity, that, he
thought, began at home, and there
was a duty owing to their own race
as well as the observance of ordinary humanity towards Ohinese.
Whatever might be the case in Lillooet and Cariboo he was sure the'
general feeling of tbe province was
against Ohinese entering the industry of mining on an equal footing
with white men. The bill was
passed through committee without
any Ohinese clause.
On Monday Hon. Mr. Smitho introduced a resolution requiring additional fees for private bills, as
follows: $100 to be paid to the
clerk of the house before the first
reading, und $100 immediately after
tbe second reading; and "no such
bill shall be read a first time, or
committed after second reading,
until the fees puyuble on the first
or second reading respectively are
paid to the clerk, and all fees paid
under this section shall ho applied
to the use of the government; and
all such bills shall be prepared by
ths parties applying for the same,
and printed in small pica type,
twenty-six ems by fifty eniB, on
good paper, in imperial octavo form,
each page when folded measuring
10} inches by 7-J inches, und oue
hundred copies thereof sliull be deposited with the clerk of the house
immediately before the first read-
ing. Jf amendments are made to
any bill during its progress before
tho committeo ou private bills, or
through the house, such bill shall be
reprinted by tbo promoters thereof,
und suub reprinting shall be done
under the directions of the clerk of
the house. Thc British Oolumbia
insurance bill, the Victoria und
Saanich railway lull, the I'indlay
Creek mining lease, the imprison-
inoiit exemption act, tho timber
amondment bill, tho Victoria tramway bill, and the land surveyors'
act, were nil advanced. The surveyors' act provides protection a-
gainst irresponsible nnd incompetent surveyors. It was opposed by
Mr. Beaven on the ground that it
created a monopoly.
On Tuesday Mr. McTavish introduced a bill to prevent defacing
publio' proporty. The mover explained that the object of the bill
was to prevent advertisements from
being plastered over the face of nature along the O. P. R. The hill
wus productive of much amusement,
and finally withdrawn. Mr. Orr
said he had a telegram stating that
a numerously signed petition on
the Vancouver incorporation bill
was boing prepared at Granville,
and he asked that further consideration of the bill be postponed till the
petition urrived. The municipality
amendment aot, introduced by Mr.
T. Davie, met with considerable
opposition. It was drawn up specially for the purpose of giving Victoria power to borrow more money
and spread loans over a longer period than is possible under the present Uw. Mr. Beaven moved that
it be not read a second time, hut
the motion was defeated, and the
bill was considerably amended in
committee

Tha 457 carat white diamond, which
arrived in England from South Africa
in 1884, litis boon during the poit
eight months in tho hands of skilful
cutters. As anticipated, the stone
will turn out the most wonderful
"brilliant cut" diamond on record,
ftiu-pnsBing in weight, as alao, it is believed, in color, purity and lustre, all
tho crown and historical brilliants of
tlie world. The stone, in its almost
finished titate, weighs still 230 carats,
but in order to givo it the best possible
shape and lustre it is intended to reduce its weight to something under
200 carats. Koh-i-noor weighs only
100 carats, the Regent of France l.'iBj
carats, the Star of the South 126
carats,,and the Piggott 82} carats.
The Groat Mogul weighs 270 carats,
It is." however, a lumpy stone, only
rose cut; and if cut to a proper shaped
brilliant it would probably not woinh
more than 140 carats.
The big snow storm in Maine packed
the principal streets iu Dixmnnt with
a drift fifteen feet high, nnd so solid
that horses could bo driven over it,
Tho young men and boys of the village tunnelled this drift, uud, after
two days' work, made a tunnel 175 feot
long, 7 feet high, nnd 8 feet wide,
through whioh teams wore driven fur
several days. ■»
The last words of John B. Gough
are worthy of constant remembrance
by every man, young and old. Iu his
intense way, after picturing the down-
ward road to ruin, ho said, "Young
man, keep your record clean." As he
uttered these wards his head foil for-
ward, and lie dropped to tho floor,
•nd did not again speak.

Our esteemed cotemporary of tho

If he has not made such un asser-

best to make his readers believe
that such a discrepancy existed, and
this he cannot deny. Tf it does not
there is not a grain of sense in our
contemporary's ravings on finances

A letter will be found iu another
column in which a member of the
Maple Ridge license court gives
some reasons why Mr Levi's application for a license was refused, although backed up by a petition
bearing 81 names. If tlie facts are
correctly stated they were quite
sufficient to justify the course adopted by the court. On Wednesday
we expressed the opinion that the
petition might not have been a fair
expression of public opinion, and
this seems to have been the cuse.
It is not safe to depend upon a petition now-a-days unless the circumstances connected with its preparation and circulation are understood.
More CIO Lois.
Our readers are reminded that
the second public sale of city squares
takes place next Tuesday at the
Council Chambers. At tlie last sale
very fair prices were obtained, and
several persons who purchased have
since resold at an advance. At the
time of the sale, negotiations for the
branch line were only in progress:
now they are ended, and the work
of construction will probably begin
next week. We may repeat, that
there is no question about the safety
of investments in city property.
Wherever embryo cities may be
boomed, and however prices may be
run up by speculative persons, the
solid progress of this city remains
sure. While admitting without
question the probability of a large
city springing up at Coal Harbor,
we can view its growth with undisturbed reflections. Vancouver will
help New Westminster more a great
'deal than, it will hurt jt^. We are
in the very centre of the agricultural settlements, we have uninterrupted river communication, and
when the branch line has been com
pleted we shall have railway facilities just as good as those of the terminal city. As a manufacturim
centre there is no city in British
Columbia so favorably situated as
New Westminster, and we are glad
to see that its advantageous location
is beginning to be appreciated. Our
sawmills have been doing nearly one-
half the entire local lumber business
of the province, the woolen factory
is progressing towards completion,
and there is not much doubt but we
will have a large flouring and oatmeal mill in operation beforo another year. These manufactures
are of a kind to bring trade, and
they will attract others. In build
operations this city makes an excellent showing. The buildings now
under process of construction represent upwards of §40,000, all of
which belongs to our own citizens.
Very shortly the gas works will be
under construction, involving an expenditure of over §50,000. Then
there will be railway station, freight
sheds, round house, wharves, etc.,
which will require a large expenditure. It is quite certain that the
' additions to the city this year in the
shape of buildings will not fall much
short of $150,000. Wo have already
pointed to the fact tliat city property steadily advances in value, and
in no case during the past live years
have we known of u single lot having been disposed of ut a decline.
These facts are such as ought to inspire citizens and others with thu
fullest confidence in the sale which
takes place next Tuesday. It will
afford an excellent opportunity to
sny ono who desires a sure investment.
"Whaft In » Name?"
Whon Shakespeare wrote these
immortal words his prescience evi
dently hod not penetrated to tho
yoar of gw<» *-n which we live, or
ho might have discovered that a
rate by any other name does not
small as aweet in the opinion of nil
men., In tho legislature the other
day the hottest debate of the
whole scsiion took place over a
nune. The hoiiw had under con-
tUeration the bill incorporating the
town of Vancouver, and the heat
of disunion arose upon the name
ttttfa   We have already expressed
tlie opinion that this new city which
is now springing up on llurrard Inlet, and which is destined to play a
part in the future history of Canada as the western terminus of our
great transcontinental railway, ought
not to have been called Vancouver";
The namo has nothing that recommends it to the sympathies of tlie
commercial world, and, besides, our
largest and  most important island
is called Vancouver already.    Wo
believe the press of this provinco
has unanimously pronounced against
the proposed name, and so have the
legislature and the Victoria board I
of trade.     But it seems that tho
railway   syndicate,   whicli   is  tho
principal owner of   the  townsite,
has set its heart upon this name,
and gives no sign of un intention to
abandon it.    The ofliciul   map of
the new  town has been prepared
and registered as Vancouver; tho
government sales have represented
it as Vancouver;   the world has
beeu advised that it is Vancouver;
and, under the circitmstaunces, it
seems to us u piece of unspeakable
folly  to interpose any serious objection, or manifest any temper over
the affair.    The objections urged in
the house, and echoed by a portion
of the Victoria press, are not serious : indeed, some of them are frivolous.    They   are    these:   Because
there is an island named Vancouver
in British Columbia and' a fort called Vancouver in Washington Territory, if the C. P, R. terminus were
called Vancouver, the confusion of
names will lead to endless trouble
and serious loss.   Now, tins is more
a matter of sentiment than of fact.
Let us suppose that a letter is posted anywhere addressed to "Vancouver, B. C."   Is thore anychnnce of
that letter going astray because of
a confusion of names?   We think
not.    It could not go to Vancouver
Island, because   there is no post
office or city on the island culled
Vancouver.     It could not   go to
Vancouver   in   Washington Territory, because Washington Territory
is not in B. C.   The same observations apply with equal force to telegrams and all other communications.
But while the legislature is quite
sure that "Vancouver" would create
confusion, it suggests tliat the new
town ought to be called Granville.
In this innocent suggestion, it seems
to us, the legislature and tho anti-
Vancouver party in Victoria give
tho  whole thing away.    There arc
at present no less than four Canadian post-offices in which  the name
Granville appears.    We bave Granville in British Columbia, Oranviltfa
in Prince Edward Island, Granville
Centre in Nova Scotia, and Granville Ferry,   also in Nova Scotia.
Four Granville post-offices in the
country and   not  one  Vancouver
post-office, and yet some of our usually sensible legislators gravely tell
us   tho   name   Vancouver    would
cause endless confusion  while the
name Granville would not!   It is
evident we must look beyond the
things that appear on the surface
before we shall discover the true inwardness of the opposition manifested by members of the legislature
and the Colonist iu   this matter.
When all the objections to "Vancouver" as a name for the terminal
city come to be analyzed and sifted
they amount simply to nothing, and
the course adopted by the objectors
strikes one as extremely childish.
If thc reports that havo reached us
fairly represent what occurred during the debate, it seems that the
provincial secretary's remarks must
have given great oflence to certain
parties.    But tlio point of the hon.
gentleman's speech  was   that  tbe
opposition sprang from sectionalism
and jealousy.    Nothing makes men
more angry than unpalatable truth,
aud  we strongly suspect that the
truth contained in  thc provincial
secretary's remark was thc very in
gradient whicli caused it to provoke
such bitter hostility.    No one needs
to be told that Victoria lias alw-iy
manifested a   determined hostility
towards anything in tho nature of
rivalry on the mainland.    It has
been for three years endeavoring to
soothe itself into a belief that the
terminus of the C. P. R. would be
somewhere on   Vancouver  Island,
but the grateful  phantom has vanished, and the people of that selfish
and ambitious city are confronted
with the unwelcome fact that with
tiie completion of tlie railway there
must necessarily come a complete
revolution in our commercial affairs.
If it is not such considerations as
these that produced such bad temper in the house, we roully are not
able to find any other sufficient rea-
non, for   there exists none in the
name Vancouver.    The fact that
the people who ask for incorporation have agreed to the name ought
surely to have been sufficient for
the legislature.   It is a matter of
vory little interest to the province
generally   what  name is adopted.
We understand that a petition was
lately circulated among the people
of Coal  Harbor asking the legisla
ture to let the name Vancouver
stand, and that it was almost universally endorsed. The legislature
cannot change the name without
committing an outrage which no
community would tolerate.

who understands his business. In the
creeks and rivers there is plenty good-
looking float. It is not possible to
form a correct estimate of the amount
of gold taken out of the mines; but
there must have been a considerable
quantity, for everybody scorned to hnve
gold while the mining was going on.
Large quantities are sent away by the
Chineso, who aro very sly nbout it.
They pack the gold in small buckskin
pouches about the size of one's finger,
holding about one ounce ench. Round

HONEST STATEMENT FROM A PRACTICAL MINER
Mr. James Jameson, who has been
prospecting and trading in the Granite
Creek region since June, 1884, came
down tu this city ou Monday, having
left Granite Creole on the 19th. Mi
Jameson ii well acquainted with the
whole of tho region, and his statements will be accepted without question by all who know him. He reports the prospectB generally in this
uew mining region very good, The
Upper Tulameen River has been prospected for a distance of about 15 miles
with encouraging results, but none of
the ground has been fairly tested.
Several companies have wing-dams all
ready, and Borne of the claims were to
begin washing the day Mr. Jameson
left (the 10th). On Granite Creek
there is a canon 3 or 4 miles long
where
VRRY  flOOD PAY
has been found, Mr. Jameson says he
has seen strings of sluices along this
canon yielding from 9100 to $600 a
day. As for the upper end of tbo
creek, termed the basin, no one, to his
knowledge, has yet reaohed bed-rook
thore, nnd the value of the ground is
unknown. From tho canon down to
tho mouth of the creek very little bedrock has been seen, and that only close
to the canon nlready mentioned. The
Lower Tulameen, a few miles below
whoro Granite Creek enters it, is a
fine looking piece of river, and our informant believes it will yet prove to
be the bost diggings in that region.
About three miles of this* stream has
beeu taken up. Tho Similkameen
River has been prospected to a limited
extent, and operations there will be
carried on vigorously the coming season. Similkameen gold is quite different in appearance from that of Granite
Creek, being darker and rougher. The
mines are stretehod over 14 miles of
this river.   There are long stretches of
HIOH GRAVEL BENCHES
on the Similkameen whero miners will
And heavy fine wash, with plenty
water, giving excellent facilities for
hydraulic mining. Tho country hero
abounds in game, and timber nnd
bunch grass are plentiful, On Granite
Creek also thero are somo high gravel
la-tin which hnvo given excellent prospects. Besides tho streams mentioned
them are about hnlf a dozen other
crunks which have been prospected
lnnru of less, in nearly all uf which
gold has been found in paying quantities. The gold belt embraces a strip
of country about 50 miles loug nnd
from 10 to 12 milos wido. During thu
whole winter prospuotiug parties hnve
boen uut, nnd in many cases, in spile
of obstacles, they hnvo obtained excellent -prospects. Thn snow tind to be
shoveled off the ground nnd the ground
thawed out by means nf tires. Prospecting will bo carried on much more
extensively nml vigorously ns soon ua
tlm eenBou fairly opens, ntid it is certain
thnt a large area of urnuml will be examined during the summer. All
through tho country theru nro numerous ledgos of rotten quarts where it is
believed gold exists, and there is a fine
field of exploration for tho practical
who
grounds will find the snow a great deal
too deep for successful work. The
new sawmill Is now in operation, and
will be a very great advantage especially to miners on the Lower Tulameen River. In Mr. Jamesou's opinion the Hope route is naturally the
best and cheapest route for summer, and in winter the route via Nicola
will have to be used. Freight can be
laid down at Granite Oreek from Victoria for 4| eta. per pound over the
Hope route, whereas it costs from 11
to 12 ots, the other way. The Hopo
trail is a very excellent summor road,
.Mr. Jameson mentioned having seen
a telegram from Yale stating that the
exploring party sent out to tind a new
route hsd discovered nn excellent one
whioh pnsBed through high prnirie
lands where there wna nbundanco of
feed. But he asks how these men
could detect feed on ground which
must have been covered with snow
from 0 to 7 feet deep! Mr. Jameson
leaves this morning to return to the
mines.
The Surrey Bonus.
Editor Colombian.—On Saturday,
March 20th, a poll was held at the town
hall to enable the ratepayers of Surrey
to express, in an unmistakable manner,
their approval of the policy of the council in submitting the steam flour, feed
and oatmeal bonua bylaw to the popular
vote. There were 102 qualified votes, of
which only 37 were cast, 20 for the bylaw nnd 11 against it, thus giving a majority of 15 in favor of the establishment of the mill and the granting of a
bonus in aid thereof. Tho whole affair
passed off very quietly, bo far as the voting was concerned. There were one or
two side shows, in which the actors were
Bomewhnt demonstrative in their efforts
to oppose thc bonus, It wns very amusing to henr the different arguments of
the oppositionists: some would have it
tlie bylaw was no good for the reason
that the person who drew it knew uo-
thing nhout such matters; others objected to tho measure, on the ground that
the bylaw only called for the manufacture of superfine flour, wherens it Bhould
have been extra superfine; others again
opposed the measure on principle, as
they woultl oppose anything else that is
calculated to improve and develop the
resources of the municipality; and notwithstanding nil the opposition fliel*-,-
law was carried by n handsome majority.
Now the bonus is assured the mill itself
will be in order nud very soon iu successful operation. Henry T. Tiiriit.
The general verdict of the smokers of
Canada ia that "Myrtle Navy" ia the
finest tobacco they have ever uaed.
There can be no mistake upon this point
for it Ib proved by this tangible evidence.
Tlio large demand for this tobacco shows
it to be true, and the character of the
demand gives further proof. It haa never been of the spasmodic kind, up one
month and down the next. It haa been
a sustained and constantly increasing demand. The unsurpassed quality of the
tobacco accounts for this.
Vancouver, B, C.
Vancouver, the proposed terminus
of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, is
beautifully situated on a peninsula
from four to five miles long by two or
threo mites in width. Snow-capped
mountains, running east und west,
face it on the north. False Creek is
nt present the southern . bitundnry,
with a possibility of it' overleaping
this barrier and fixing its limits in the
forest on the hills to the south. Over
n thousand aores of land have been
cleared and divided into town- lots,
At present those lots are not selling as
rapidly na one would suppose, for the
reason that capitalists expect to buy
lots cheaper from the railroad compnny. This compnny hns fm' thousand
acres of Innd for its proposed townsite.
Two hundred men aro cutting the
timber off this tract. Until this land
is cleared there will he little activity
in the snlo of lots. This will bo no
sooner thsn the lst of May. However hopeful the people of British
Columbia may be that the Canadian
Pacifio will be ready to carry freight
and passengers hy tho lat of July,
they will probably have to watt until
a much later date. Not much capital
is going into Vancouver under such u
stato of things. The woodsman, the
painter, the carpenter, the hotels and
restaurants are reaping a golden harvest, but other branches of busineis
are not doing much. The population
at present is principally Canadians.
They are looking to the time when
Vancouver will be the London of
America, and are depending on the
celebrated American enterprise from
the States to come over and help them.
Men of the Pacifio Coast are too welt
acquainted with booms to invest their
all in a proposed railrond terminus.
They hnve so often been deceived by
greedy railroad corporations thnt they
throw to tho winds alt mandates issued
by their orders. Undoubtedly Vancouver, on Conl Harbor, is the terminus. Coal Harbor is well protectod
from the sea, and will make an invaluable shipping place. It could nut l>u
on English Bay at thu presont period,
for it would take millions of dollars to
shield it fmm tho open sea. In tho
meantime capitalists wait fur the actual entrance of the Canadian Pacific
road in Vancouver.— Seattle Post.

to the Chinese blocking our sidewalks;
also, your remarks upon the same, which
I presume were mule without proper
enquiry iuto tho matter. Now, Mr.
Editor, allow me to inform you that tho
Chinese do block the sidewalk In such a
manner on Front streot that it is necessary for passengers arriving by steamer
to cross tho street from the C, P. N. Co.'s
gate to Mr, Ooldstone's store jn onler to
avoid the nuisance in tht shape of a lot
of offensivo Chinamen blocking the entire sidewalk from Mr. Homer's store to
Mr, GotdBtone's. Any person still doubting thc correctness of these statements
is kindly invited to tnko a stand in front
of Mr. Wise's store, unon the arrival of
thc steamer "Princess Louise" next trip,
and become convinced of the fact. 1
would also like to call attention to the
neglect of our police oflicers in allowing
thia nuisance to go on contrary to out-
city laws.   Vours, fto.,

Editor Columbian. — Two women
whose husbands are addicted to rxces*
sive drinking lately called upon tho
saloon keeper who had beeu supplying
the liquor and oue of them asked him if
he would be kind enough not to let her
husband have any more, as he had been
drinking to excess and abusing her and
her family. She complained that her
husband had beeu brought home drunk
ubout 2 o'clock in tho morning by some
unknown person and left at the door unable to help himself; nnd, when sober,
he had stated that ho had got the liquor
at this saloon.   Tho saloon keeper re-
{died insolently and said that he hail a
icense to sell liquor and woultl sell to
any person 'who liad tho money to pay
for it; no matter if it made broken hearted wives and suffering children, and destroyed the peace and comfort of home.
Now, Mr. Editor, will not this country
protect helpless women nud iunoceut
children, and helpless men also, from
this licensed curse T Or, if we cnunot
crush the monster that is making havoc
among the peoplo, let ub at least put
shackles on him and restrain his power
for evil. Can you point out any remedy
for the women and children, whose
wretchedness appeals to our sympathy?
If tliere is no redress, how long shall we
sit silently aud see these things going on
without rebuke T When shall we rise aa
one man nnd demand protection against
this destroyer? Humanity.
[We have said already that there
seems to be no legal remedy. We believe, however, tliat If such au instance
as that mentioned by onr correspondent
were brought to the notice of the liconse
court, a way would be found to reach
the liquor dealer through his license.-

Talks lo Hts Sleep,
Editor Coi.umrian.-~-Your correspondent "Watchman," iu last Saturday's
Columbian, must havo heen laboring
under a temporary attack of ineitlms
(vulgarly known as nightman) nt tlie
time of inditti'g his remarkable article
on "-The Temperance Question,'' The
construction, or rather mfc-coustruoitou,
which lie puts upon a late leading article
In Thk Columbian is a marvel of fantastic incongruity. Besides displaying
a morbid hostility toward the temperance cause, he seems to have taken
umbrage nt something which ho claims
to have discovered in Thk Columbian,
classically (?) and elegantly (?) defined by
him as "feminine trash —whatever ho
means by that! Moat probably his
roving eye chanced to light on some
dressmaking er millinery advertisment,
which produced the same symptoms as
the proverbial "red rag" upon the festive and belligerent bull. But, dear me,
his wife (poor "feminine" thing—if ho
has one) could iuform him that it waa
juat ns necessary for theso "feminine
trash" factories to keep their business
before the publio ns it was for tho cstab-
lishment  that "builds" tho bifurcated
Sarmcnt for the "lords of creation." I
o uot wish to occupy muoh more of
your space, Mr. Editor, but, with your
permission, I will toll "Watchman" a
little "bear atory." It will be rather
"light reading, I am afraid, hut then it
may tend to divert hia attention from
those more serious questions whieh are
evidently causing too much friction of
the "internal calculus":
Once upon a time there was a Big
Bear, and ho sauntered into a certain
Sawmill (in the backwoods) and possessed
himself of a Poor Man's diuner pail.
While guiltily devouring tho contents,
he was annoyed hy a Buzz-Saw which,
with a definite object before it and an
irresistible power behind it, was grandly
minding its own business. The Buzz-Saw
merely urushed the Bear's tail, hut, with
the irritability consequent upon n had
couscimtce, he picked a quarrel with it
and finally*—oh! horror of horrors!—
closed with it! When the curtain roso
on the last act the Buzz Saw, beautifully
{[rcssed, was working away more light*
icartedly thnn ever; hut the Bear—oh!
where was ho? Don't nsk the Buzz*Snw
—it wasn't to blame.
Lest "Watchman" ahould fail to get
tiio proper focus upon this simple littlo
parable, I will be very explicit: Tho
buzz-saw, with the definite object beforo
it and the irresistible power behind it, is
tho temperance came; tlie irritable old
bear with tho bad conscience is— "Watchman." In conclusion, Mr. Watchman,
let mo give you a little friendly advice:
For your own sake—for the sake of your
friends—for tbo sake of the insurance
companies (if you are insured)—for tho
sake of a sympathetic nnd sensitive public-*/.to-iV rerr fool with the Btia-Satv!
WaiujuDoo.
a license. Lest many of your readers
might think that we acted arbitrarily iu
tho matter, I subjoin some of the reasons
which helped us in our decision:
1. In looking over tbe petition presented us, we found that it did not contain the names of a large number of our
influential residents.
2. Because it contained the names of
many persons who had no right to interfere in tlie matter, such as minors, and
railroad and lumbermen who are not
actual residents.
3. Because of the undue influence
brought to bear upon those whose signatures wero solicited.   The bearer of the
Eetition was fortunate enough to have
is arm sprained for the occasion and
went around with it in a sling, lie informed the people that he waa unable to
work, that the bread was taken out of
his children's mouths, and many through
sympathy were led to nign. Others
whose sympathies could not be touched
in this way were charged with being un*
neighborly and enemies, and he would
persistently ask what.it was that they
had against him, till at Inat they too
would sign simply to get rid of the man.
Many of these knew that they were acting against their convictions and afterwards told us that thoy hoped no license
would be granted, as, so far aa they
were concerned, they did not want it.
Wo were perfectly satisfied that influences of this kind must have beon brought
to bear upon them, because we had In
our possession a petition taken around
some timo ago asking that uo license be
granted, and signed by a large number
(about ouo half) of those whose names
appear ou this petition.
4. We did not grant a license, because
of the disreputable house which waa
kept whon they woro in possession of a
license.
These, among others, are some of the
reasons we assign for uot granting a
license, and wc feel confident that public
opinion is with us in this matter.   Yours,
One or tiii Magistrate.

Editoh Columiuan,- Iu your intiie of
thc 15th inst, there appeared au article
referring to tho action of the magistiuteui
at the license court recently held in thin
place. Your correspondent says: "Tliere
were two applications disposed of. Oue
of tho applicants, Mr. Levi, of Port
Haney, presented a petition to tho court
signed by 81 residents of tho municipality, asking that a license he granted.
The petition wns not tui-on into consideration, as the justices held that public
opiniou lu refcrenco to the matter wns
worthless." Now, Mr. Editor, yonr correspondent must eithor bo profoundly
ignorant respecting the manner in which
tho business of the court was conduoted,
or elsu hn must be guilty of maliciously
trying to injure thu reputation ot the
magistrate-i who sat on tlm occasion. It
{s true thnt a petition was handed into
court having a largo number of nnmes
attached, hut It is uof true "that tho
petition wns uot taken into consideration," nor did wo for a moment think
"thnt public oplhion in reference to tho
matter was worthless," On thu contrary, we ware nn Influenced bv "publio
opinion" thnt we felt persuaded thnt the
best way we could servo tho interests of

Free Schools.
Editor Columbian.—It moy not be
generally known that the Churchman's
Gazette, the organ of the Episcopal
church iu this province, which has but a
limited circulation mainly confined to
thnt body, is a prouounced opponent of
our free school system. Being an influential church, its position ou this question imperils, in some degree, our popular
system of education. To show what a
straw such opponents would catch at in
order to berate the free school of this
proviuce, the editor of the Gazette iu its
last issue compared the low rate of at
tendance at the two schools at Nicola
with that at the city schools at Victoria
and the vast difference between the cost
of public education in the two places!
What a dinooveryl To find out what
might bo reasonably expected, that it
were far more difficult to educate the
children ef country schools than those of
the cityl But, then, are the children of
the country to be deprived of the educational advantages enjoyed by those of
the city ? Or are country schools to be
closed to enable the editor of the Gazette
or hia friends to establish schools In
which their dogmas are taught at
a cout to the parents far surpassing
their ability to bestow! And further
(which is not very complimentary to the
Nicola people), the editor of the Gazette
aays of the Nicola schools, "We have
some recollection of hearing, in connection with these very schools, that the
system of 'borrowing' pupils is not altogether unknown." How, although such
kind of insinuations are often unworthy
of notioe, yet it might bo iu onler for
the Nicola trustees to arise and explain.
Thc editor of the Gazette pitches in generally against the New Westminster
High School, professedly on the plea
tliat tbe elemoiary public school education is sacrificed to it. In support of
tliis he quotes a similar opinion from the
report of one ot the public achool teachers. When such an opinion is expressed,
by a majority of our public sohool teachers, instead of on.' of them, then may
the Gazette write such sentences as tho
following, wliich I take from its article
in question: "With reference to the
mainland high school we see do reason
fur modifying the sentiments of opposition which we have already expressed
towards it We raised  our voice
against the high sohool from its inauguration, and, if we are not much mistaken, tbe event is going to justify our
opposition. The high sehool ia the pet
of a clique and tho word has been passed
that tlie high school must be made to
succeed. We do not believe in the success attainable by such means and we
expe.'t to see the day when publio
opinion will say: 'If a free high school
means providing a favored few with
cheap accomplishments at the sacrifice of
the proficiency of the publio schools, we
can employ the revenue of the province
to better advantage.1" These deliverances of the Qazette are significant. Lot
tlio electors at the coining election mark
them well! If a candidate of similar
expectations and of the same way of
thinking as that of the editor of the Gazette presents himself for the suffrages of
the people, it is to he hoped that they
will, ns in the past, give him to understand thnt the government high school
is (not for "n favored few," but the cherished right of the people, and not of "a
clique," and that if it were, as the Gazelle asserts, "tho pet of a clique," it
were far better to have the high sohool
"the pet ef a clique," that "clique" being tho people, than tu have it the pet of
a priesthood belonging to his or any
other church. I am mistaken if tho
people at the polls will uot show that
thoy think it far better to spend their
revenue in support of schools free to
evory man's child-oven the poorest —
than to spend it as the editor of the On*
tells evidently desires, upon his own
church i-chools or upon any other sectional institutions, especially upon those
which in the past havu in the education
of rich men's childrrii provided learning
for "a favored ftyv," nnd allowed the
children of the poor to grow up in ignor
mice and neglect so as to fuvor the purposes of a priesthood and n bloated
squirearchy. The editor of the Gazette
may sigh for those "good old times,''
but they will never bo repeated In British (Snlumbia. John Bull.

Being confronted by the murderous
villains, the messenger fought for his
life and the property in his trust. The
interior of the car shows that he fought
the robbers from oue tmd of the cur

an iron poker forced him to succumb,
and he wua left dead in the car The
robbers rifled his pockets of the keys
of the safe, which they robbed of all

money they left scattered about the

occurrence until the train reached

but as the summo'no whs not answered
it was thought the train messenger was

of a desperate struggle uud the dead

dark colored hair that he must have
torn from the head of one of thu
assailants. A large force of oflicers
and men from this place and Morris
are now scouring the country. It is
thought the guilty men will bo captured, in which event they will probably be lynched. The dead messenger was married, and lived ut Chicago.

Londoh, Mar. 20.—The Pall Mall Gazette states that it is authorized to deny
that Mr. John Morley, chief secretary
for Ireland. Mr. George Osborne Morgan,
under colonial secretary, or Mr. Broad*
hurst, under secretary for the home department, are opposed, as has been ro*
ported, to Mr. Gladstone's Irish appropriation scheme. The authority for said
statement was a cabinet minister. He
adheres to his statement, despite the
denials put out in a semi-official way.
The interview between John Bright ond
Gladstone to-day lasted two hours, aud
when Mr. Bright departed Mr. John
Morley, chief secretary for Ireland, had
a conference with Mr. Gladstone. The
premier anfl his Irish secretary were in
council together for full one hour and a
half.

PorraviLLB, Ta., March 22.—A terrible accident occurred this morniug in a
tuunel on tbe Pottsville k Mahoney railroad. At horseshoe curve, outside -of
this oity, shortly after the day shift went

place, burying twenty workmen, mostly
Italians. Two were killed outright and
several injured.
London, March 22.— Mr. Gladstone
occupied his usual seat in the liouso of
commons this afternoon. He appeared
to be in excellent health and spirits. Sir
William Vernon Harcourt, chancellor of
the exchequer, replying to Mr. Goshen,
said the government was not disposed to
appoint a special committee to examine
into, and report on the silver question,
because the special commission which
was uow inquiring into the cause of thc
depression of trade will in all probability
cover the question in its work, It is
affirmed this evening by persons believed
to know that there has never been any
foundation for the stttcmant that Gladstone intended asking authority to issue
a loan in onler to secure amounts to
carry out his scheme to buy out real
estate owners in Ireland. It is now declared that thc premier, in bis scheme,
proposes the appointment of experts to
fix the values of the various land prone
tics iu Ireland, which at these valnnttoi
me to be hnnded over to the possession
of the government in exchange for con
sols. Iu this way Ireland is to be madt
debtor to llio empire for the entire
amount paid to the landlords- together
with interest of tho whole sum, tnlie repaid into the imperial treasury by lie-
land iu instalments within fifty years.
At tho cud of that time lessees are to become owners. This plan, develops the
domestic arrangements between the government of Ireland and the tcuants, Ireland Incoming tenant of the empire and
sub-leaser to the tenants, whose rent in

N Fighting with Poison.
I was spending some days, not many
years ago, in a beautiful littlo country
village, and in a family that had moro
than common attractions to one whu
loves domestic lifo as well aa myself.
The little cirolo liad in it more of real
interest than I hnvo often seen developed iu tho same number of persons.
The father of the family—almost too
young to feel tbat he was entitled to
that Honorable appellation—was a fine
frank-hearted mechanic, with a wido
world of life bounding in his veins; an
energy that when fully aroured, drovo
everything violently beforo liim; and a
-warmth of disposition that won him
more friendship thau it had then Riven
him of tho coo-da of this world.
Hia wife to whom he had been married for four years, was singularly
beautiful. They had two children—
the one n laughing, brown-eyed and
brown-haired Jittle fairy of threo years;
her romantic namo was Blossom. The
second was a crowing, laughing, blue-
eyed, plump little beauty of loss than
a' year, promising tn have all the
charms of the t-ldur nt In r aee.
I was sitting ouo afternoon in a quiet
little room, with my feet on two chairs,
reading a pleasant little bonk, in a
stale betweon sleep and awake—my
host away at his shop, a hundred yards
off, and my pretty little hostess engaged in hur liouso* hold labors—when
I was thrown out of my indolence by a
scream that brought mo to my feet
like au electric shock. It was a woman's voice, and had in it an exoesi of
agony that can not be indicated by
words; so loud that it rang over tlmt
quiet little villago, and brought every
one forth to oscortain the cause.
I sprang to tho door that Buparutcd
the sitting room from the dining apartments, and saw the wholo at u glance.
The youug mother stood at the door
with her ti rat-born—our darling Blossom, in her nrms, dying! A brief and
hurried word from the sorvant told the
aad story. Thc little girl liad accompanied a child-uncle upstairs, aud
while Che attention of the older child
was for a moment turned away, she
seized a bottle of corrosive sublimate
in alcohol, and drank enough to havo
taken away twonty such lives. Tho
. littlo thing had tottered down stairs,
and the mother had met her at tho
landing with the empty bottlo in her
hand, and the poisou oozing from her
mouth—the child all unconscious of
the fearful thing she had dune, Was it
any wonder thut a terrible shriek ran
out over tho quiet village, aud that
already the occupants of every house
near were rushing toward the spot
-where the mother stood 1'
But a few momenta could possibly
have elapsed since tho poison was
taken, and yet tho effect was already
fearful. Aftor tho first shriek of terror, tbe mother had quieted tu a calm
despair for the moment, and stood with
the ohild in her arms, making no effort
for ita relief, and indeed, it seemed
hopeless, tor nlreudy the aubtle poison
teemed diffused through the frame.
The brown eyes had lust then- lustro;
the face was blackened as if after
death; aud tho teeth wore tight sut in
a convulsive spa-mi that evidently
would not pass away. 1 examined the
little lost darling for a moment, saw
that it was hopeless, and then turned
away unable to bear a mother's agony.
The little door was already half tilled
with villagers; and sobs and moans,
and lamentations over the fate of the
dying child, were heard in every direction, mingled with quick ami hurried
questions as to the manner of Ub occurrence, and vain attempts at aUBttur-
ing, which added an oppressing con*
fusion to the sadness of thu scene.
Tlio littlo playfellow's uncle, who
had been up-stairs with the child, had
run instantly to cnll the father, and
but a few momenta elapsed before ho
sprang into the middle of the group.
He had been told all and asked no
questions. I had time to remark that
hii eyo was very stern, and that his
lips were very firmly compressod.
Othen, too, remarked it; and I know
afterward, that a murmur ran around
the circle of how strange it was that
he betrayed no feeling.
He reached out his hands mid took
the child from its mother. Its eyes
were now closed, and a white ooze coming from between the blackened lips.
Was ever death more assured? I saw
htm open the eyelids, und givo a sigh
of relief. He told me afterward that
the eye was not sunken, and bo den'h
had not begun. He then attempted to
open the mouth, but the teeth were
tight set, and they resisted his efforts.
But with u Firre thnt seemed almost
brutal, ho wrcuched thu teeth apart,
and opened the mouth.
-IjShame!" criod one of the bystanders. Thu father did not heed them,
but motioned to a neighbor to take the
child in his arms.   He did so.
"Bring me the egg-busket." he spoke
very sternly, almost without opening
his teeth, to tho servant.
"What do you want of it/" "What
can you do with it?" "He,8crazyl
and many such remark followed, but
the basket was there iu it moment,
He seized one of the eggs, broke it,
inserted his fingers again between the
teeth, and wrenched them open by
force, though they shut with such con
vulsive motion as to tear tho llesh frou
his fingers, and poured the albumen
into the throat, Thero waB a slight
struggle, nothing more, uud tho spectators wero horrilied at the actiou,
"Don't, the ohild is dying," said
one.
"Please don't hurt tho hltlo thing
it can't live!1' tho mother found voice
to say, laying her hand upon liis arm.
"Alary, be atill," he answered sternly, while his toeth were unrelaxing
from thoir clenching, and his face as
hard as if he were entering a bottlu,
and don't any of you meddle with mo,
•'keep off!"
The bystanders involuntarily obeyed.
With mnny harsh remarks upon his
cruelty, but he did not heed them and
went on. Another and uimlher egg
wm broken, nnd still there was no sign
of life, Then the whole Hotly of bystanders broke out into a loud murmur, and cries of "Tho brute!" "Let
the child die in peace!" "Ho is crazy
-take the child away from him!" were
heard around htm.
He desisted for n moment from his
efforts, and turned with a fierceness
whioh had before been foreign lo his
nature, but uo one who saw it after
wards forgot it. "Fouls," he hiBsed,
"mind your own business, and leave
me to mine! Take her away, will you?
Try it!" and ho wont on emptying egg
after egg down the apparently lifeless
throat.
The mother oould stand this no
longer. Her first-born was being tor-
tured to death before her eyes, nnd
aha imploringly flung hersolf on hur
knaaa bafore her husband's father, who
had at that moment nrrived, "Oh,
father, do atop him!" she gasped; "ho
will obay ym; do stop him. He is
torturing that poor dying child.
The grandfather started forwoid a
step tu interfere, for he too thought
tba proceeding an outrageous one; but
he stopped and aaid:
"Mary, lot him alone.    The child
will die if he doe3 not go on. It can
do no moro if he does. I would not
say u word to him for (lit1 world. The
child is his—let him uso it at his
pleasure."
Thero was a silence then. In a moment more thero was a quiver of the
eyelids, a convulsive movement of the
chest, and tho toeth lost their tensinn.
Tho father seized hia child, tinned hor
face downward, nnd the poison began
to flow from Iier mouth. Again, and
again as the retching ceased, he repeated the experiment—thc life returning
still more, and the face losing its black
color every instant. More than twenty
times albumen had been administered,
and more than lialf those times followed by the expulsion of tho poison;
when the eyes opened, the fathor desisted, the littlo sufferer lay just alive
in his arms, exhausted, its little lifo
terribly shattered, but saved I
Then, when the necessity for exertion and determination was over—when
the physician had been summoned,
and they know that darling little 111ns-
soin might livo, afier many weeks "f
Btrugglo between life and death—-when
the relieved frienda had acknowledged
that they had wrongod him first; whon
the beautiful and Horrowfnl wife had
blessed bim through her kisses and
tears, nnd all knew that, under Gud,
only such an almost fierce determination could have saved the child—then
the fathor sat down, unnerved, nnd
wept like a child.
Blossom is alive to-day, and her
bruwn eyes are opening upon woman*
hood. But there is no hour in my
life that brings so thrilling a recollection us that of thu young farmer's
struggle for the life nf his child—that
Fit-lit With I'uison which I have only
faintly indicated because beyond description.— From Sutton's Leisure Ifotir
-fisecttany,
The English Bayonet Test.
Tho former teat fur tho ordinary triangular Martini-Henry bayonets was
tu bend them over u simple bridge liku
the bridgo of a violin, and iu the case
of swords they were bent by hand to a
bow of about four inches. Bayonets
and swords, even if weak, would stand
these testB. Now, howevor, the tests
are extraordinarily severe. Tho bayonet has its point pushed into a socket
or shoe, and it is thon bent by hand
presauro over a wood arch of a segment of curve equal to nearly its entire
length, nnd which has au elevation at
its central part of two and one-half
inches, the hilt end of thc bayonet
being bont over to the exlont of moro
than four inches, Tho metal muat
then spring buck to ita former condition, without the slightest permanent
sot. This test i3 applied to all the
threo sides of the bayonet, lt is then
tested by torsional strain by being
fixed in an apparatus in whioh the
strain of eighty pounds suspended
weight is applied. Finally, it is struck
by hand with the hardest blows upon
each of its sido-i against a solid oak
bluck, by which, if any flaw exists, tho
bayonet will be certainly broken. If
the slightest permanent bend or set
can be detected after theae proofs, tho
bay-met is at unco rejected. To swords
similav crucial tests aro now applied,
ouo of the most important features be
iug tho introduction of a (oat for proving iho rigidity of the sword, beside
tho tests for proving ita temper nr
Hoxibihty.
The artillery carbine sword-bayonet
is subjected lo a test of tliis class, But
thc most searching of nl! ihu testa ate
those applied to the cavalry swords.
These are Si_ inches long and 5 10 of
an inch thick at tho back. Each liladu
is first bent over a wood arch of nearly
its own length to lhe extent of 2 feet
at its hilt end, its point being fixed.
It is theu put in a frame perfectly vertical, and it must stand a weight of 32
pounds upon it without the slightest
indication of uny deflection. Tho Enfield blados stand this teat to tho extent of UO pounds. Tho blade is next
forced down by leverage to the extent
of G inches, bowing proportionately on
either side. Two powerful cuts are
then made by hand against a wood
block, one with the front edge thu
other with the buck. Tho sword blade
ia then tested by being placed "l a
trough or mould finished up to a mechanical fit. Tho handle and guard
being riveted on, tho like testa are applied to the finished sword. Tho ordinary swords m tho service nro of the
1882 pattern, and, like tho bayonets,
aro slightly too light nnd weak at the
ends of the blades. Tho new swords
of tho 1885 pattern nre heavier and are
strengthened by a greater thickness
and depth of metal nt the cutting portion of tho blade. The new bayonets
are three ounces heavier in weight than
tha former Martini-Henry bayonets,
although of the samo length as the
original pattern. All the present
forms of bayonets are destined, it
would soem, to givo way to the latest
pattern sword-bayonet, which will
probably receive general acceptance as
lhe finest and moat useful weapon ever
associated with tho rifled musket.—

Wetting Ahead.
The disposition of children not to
allow other children tu get ahead of
them is once more illustrated in two
families, ua follows;
"I've got a silver dollar,"
"I've got two,"
"You haven't got a baby in your
hour house."
''YfiH, wo have; we've got twins."
"Well, you haven't got a crazy
grandfather.   I have."
Cork leather, as produced in France,
ia claimed to possoss some special advantages ub compared with tho natural
skins. In ita production thin sheets
or pieces of cork arc covered on both
sidos with an extremely thin India-
rubber skin, with any ordinary textile
fabric outside of all, tlm wholo liDcnm*

In their normal state, nre readily permeable by water, friable, und brittle,
and possessed of very littlo strength or
cohesion, having only tho positive
qualities of lightness and nomoondiio-
tion of heat, yut, when subjected lo
tho treatment in question, tho product
is very supple, and exhibits great
strength in resisting tensile strain.
While nlso still retaining its comparative liglitueaa and impenetrability to
heat, it is rundered both waterproof

external appearance of the material

textile substance uaed in combination
