Indlans and Whisky.
Not long ego we published nn ex
tract from the Churchman's Gazelle
relating to the demoralizing effect of
liquor among Indians. The following article from the Nanaimo Free
iVw.il worthy of attention i
On Saturday night Chief Constable Stewart and Countable Millar
viaited what is known as the Enclii-
taw' Camp, on thn Departure Bay
Road, and found that the entire
camp was in a frightful utate of in
toxication. They attempted to make
arrests and were set on by a number of crazy drunk Indians. Thn
constables were, forced to heat a retreat, but not till Chief Constable
Stewart was so badly injured thai-
he has been confined to bin bed over
since. Constable. Millar was nlso
injured about the hands and arms.
This officer fired his revolver at the
ferocious aborigines, and fortunately
in one respect, missed hitting any of
his assailants. Our object is not to
draw attention to the details of the
facts, but to bring to the notice of
the proper authorities the fact,that
wandering or tramp Indians should
not be allowed to make permanent
encampments in tbe vicinity of uny
centre of population. It is well
known that thoy form these encamp
ments with the sole object of carrying on a vile traffic that is fust
bringing many of our youth to un
untimely grave, and to others the
loss of alt self-respect and the consequent degradation of character. Indians, mule and female (the former
aiding and abetting tbe latter in
their pernicious occupation) of the
' very 'worst stamp, leave their own
reserves and in tho vicinity of the
cities set up a rancherie which for
low degrading influence is far in excess of the worst slums to be found
in the cities of America aud Europe.
White men, a shade'worso than the
Indian, are to be found low enough
to pander to the appetites of the
wandering inhabitants of tbis brothel
by supplying them with a decoction
of turpentine, fusil oil, etc., which
fires the Indian brain to madness.
Under the influence of this death-
dealing concoction the worst features
of the Indian are brought to tho
surface, and the result is just such a
terrible scene as that witnessed during the early hours of Sunday morning. The Indians nre not so much
to blame nn those who supply or connive at tho supplying of such fire
water. We , do not wish in the
slightest manner to condone tbe uct
of the Indians in uprising against
tbe police, but we unhesitatingly say
that the parties who supplied the
liquor are infinitely more to blame
than the untutored Indian, and that
an example should bo made of "|Ho-
fessional Indian whisky sellers" who
live in and about the camp. It is
quite lime that a stop should lie put
to tbis illicit traffic in "forty rod
whisky." Imprisonment appears to
be no punishment to the "professional" and although we have no wish to
came back to the days of the "lash
and knout," it would appear that
something of that kind is necessary
to abate the evil. The evil no doubt
could be materially lessened by uot
allowing Indians belonging to other
reservations to permanently locate
in the vicinity of centres of population, Freo liberty should be allowed
them to come and go for the purposes
of legitimate trade, but the moment
they commence to settle down to
canyon an unlawful business,just
that moment they should be sent
borne to their reserves, The Camp
on the Departure Bay Rond is on
the highway to the shipping ut Departure Bay, and beeomrs a lisp for
many nn innocent sailor. As we
Raid before it is high time such a
blot was wiped out, and wo hope to
see tbe authorities move at once in
the matter. In doing so they will
effect a permanent publio benefit.
Bret Hurts, tha American consul at
Glrjgow, reports that the returns of
the Clyde ship-building for nine
months ot 1883 show that the. enormous aggregate of 293,023 tons of new
shipping hss been launched by the
various firms on the river, being an.
incnoso of 38,880 tons in tho first
three quarters; nf last year, the total
"output" for whioh was the largest on
record. Several firms this year will
surpass all their previous efforts. One
firm will launch over 40,000 tons, another will complete nearly 90,000 tuns,
while an unusually large number of
firms will launch over 20,000 tons each.
The United States shipyards, in comparison with these figures have nothing
to show.

The mountains of Galhvaro, in. tlio

of pure magnetic iron in immense
layers of ssvtrol hundred feet thickness upon the surface of ground. One

"Km; plus moriere; plus cole Sacra colen-

I heard a funeral march, wltii-groan and
wall,
It swept thu aisle nud echoed in the
dim ■ I
And vaulted roof.   I felt ihyvsjlrit quail,
My heart grow faint, autl (of ble every
limb.
It seemed a Womn" wailing fliher woe,
Mourning becau.w her. first-born was
no more;
A maiden weening for her lover now
Browned when Ins boat Bad nearly
reached tho shore,     i- -
And then the burden ilnuigUij-gwcct
sad song
Arose more hopeless than the first wild
grief
Aud sine, it aaid aa slow it wound nlong,
Sing tlmt the lifo of man dies ns the
leaf.
Sing that a warrior great has passed
awny,
Sing that a man who loved his Hfo hns
gone,
Sing for a maiden fair is dead to-day,
Her lover weep*   above   her   grave
alone.
Sing that the world is slipping from our
grasp,
Sing that tho greatest are hut as the
dust;
Life's spark dies out, a feeble groan, a'
gasp}
Then to the grave wo sink to mould
- aud rust. —E.
Tlie (tour d'Atcne Mines.
Contrary to reports already published, tho trail leading into the Ctour
d'Alene mines Is yet open to travel..
The snow is from n foot and a half to
two feet deep, but the constant travel
on the trail hits kept the snow well
packed. On Saturday Inst n pack train
of sixteen horses, loaded witli provisions, were well on their way into
thu mines, nud were mnkitig good time.
There nre about 900 miners iu the
camp, and provisions are plentiful,
although high prices nro demanded.
Whisky. 25 cents a drink; flour, $20
and $25 n barrel; bacon. 35 and 40
cents por pound; coffee, $1.25 and
91.50 pur pound. Board, without
lodging, SU pur weok, Only ono claim
is being worked at present — the
"widow* claim"—und iB paying from
$40 to 880 (coarse gold) to thu mnn
per day. Mechanics of all kinds had
better keep out of the mines until June
at least. Thu miners are putting up
their own cabins, and heucu thero is
no demand for men at wages. Gold is
found frum the grass roots to bod-r ick,
which litis nt au average depth of eight
feet. Our informant was uttered $1400
for an unopened claim, but tho tender
was promptly refused. Hayes City is
situated nt a point where Eagle creek
bottom runs mit to a width uf five
miles, There aro now six saloons, (wo
general morchmidiau Bturca, two hotels,
a blacksmith shop, and several minor
establishments. The "mining around"
so far discovered on Gitglo aud Prtt-
chard creeks, is about twenty-two miles
lung by the width of tlm-streams,
whicli will average about a mile and a
.half. On Pritchnrd creek, above the
gravel claims, several woll-di-fiiuid
quartz bilges have been found. A Baw
mill ih now in course of construct ion
at Eagle City, the promoters of the
enterprise being-residuum nf Oliuiiey.
On Lake Occur d'Alene a largo force uf
mechanics are en;,';.jjed in setting up
two steamers, wl.ich nro destined for
the passenger and freight trade to tho
mines, The keels are laid, nnd the
mechanics uro now retting up ihe
knees. At Rahdriim the stu-w is
about fifteen inches deep and i-tilL falling, wbilu nt the mines tbe Bimw is
twenty inches in depth; I'ho miners
de uot expect to bcihi operations until
the last of April. Letters received by
them from all parts of the coast, indicate au unusually large emigrati'iu to
the "diggings" ns soon ns thu weather
permits. — Walla Walla Union.

When the defendant took the stand
his honor said:—
"Prisoner, you arc charged with
having removed the goblet frmii the
hand ot the Cogswell statue, substituting a pair of two-bit suspenders, with a placard calling attention to your establishment across
the way,"
"Weil, shudge," replied tho uJl'endor
with an ingratiating smile, "uf gorso 1
vnuts to get along in pooBnesn.''
"After wliich,'' continued the Court,
sternly, "you substituted a lot of neckties for thu suspenders, nnd attached
to the other hand a lot of bills referring
to your new stock of gum shoes and
hair oil,"
"Dose hair oil is fust rate, your
honor," said tho defendant. "I vould
like to sell you a puttie." ;.
"And yesterday," continued the.
court, consulting the indictment, "you
obstructed tho thoroughfares and
created a disturbance by placing a
paper collar and a plug hut uu tho
statue iu question."
'Duse nlug hats is cheap nt $4,

the trader cheerfully; "I beats dose

"And at night," went on his honor,
"at night it appears you place in the

snd reprehensible."
"Dot's right, shudge," said Mr.
Solomons, delightedly, "Bitch, into

and he smiled beniguantly upou the
reporters.
"Great heavens!" thundered the
eourt, as a frightful idea struok him.

Woman Suffrage.
A press despatch from Toronto,
Out., dated January 3rd, flaya
"The question of woman suffrage
has taken a Btrong hold in this
province. Tbe piestdent of the
Woman's Suffrage Association wiites
to the newspapers that, iu order to
test tbe feeling in Ontario a circular was recently addressed to every
municipality in tbe province asking
it to petition the local legislature
to extend the full franchise to
those women who possess the qualities which entitle men to vote.
Already a very large number of
these petitions have been returned to
the association duly signed and sealed,
while.a number of others have been
forwarded to the members for the
respective ridings. Among them are
those from the important councils of
Ottawa, Kingston, Godericli, TI101-
sld, Ridgetown, Wetland, Haw fees-
bury, and many of tbe townships."
This furnishes additional proof of
the fact that the world moves. When
the agitation for woman's rights began in the United States it was looked
upon by Canadians generally as monstrous. Newspaper articles and plat
form orators pictured tbe most ter
rible social disasters as certain to
follow the adoption of so unnatural
and sweeping an innovation, Tliese
notions have become greatly modified. The practical operation of
woman suffrage, where it has prevailed, ia not such as to inspire fear,
Indeed, the evidence has been very
favorable, and it will not surprise,
us if, before many yenrs, this "inno
ration" has become a part of the
law in all civilized countries. Twice
the subject has incidentally come up
for discussion in the British Columbia legislature, and on each occasion
it hns been received with a great
deal of favor. If the government
will bring down a bill next year
to enfranchise the women of this
province, we have no doubt it will
receive very general support throughout tbe country, and we are persuaded that the results would be beneficial,   ^^^^^^^^
Juvenile Depravity.
There must be a considerable number of bad boys in tbis city, and some
of them are laying the foundations
of a career which promises no credit
to themselves or their friends. The
disclosures nt the police court last
weak *Vere: enough to fill with serious
apprehensions those who concern
themselves for the future of our city
and country. It was shown that
Borne parents nro compelled to send
an escort to protect tlieir young children from insult and violence on their
way from the public school in broad
day light. It would seem as if nn
organization existed among these little fellows of 12 years old and downwards for the purpose of tormenting
and worrying the life of any one who
made himself obnoxious. That such
a condition of affairs should exist is
not creditable either to the public
schools or the parents to whom the
children belong. It is monstrous to
find that a child may not be sent
to school without risk of assault
from his classmates. If the trustees
are aware of the existence of sticii
abuses in connection witli the schools,
it seems to us they have been remiss in their duty in not taking
decisive measures of prevention. If
they are not aware, the teachers
and parents have been at fault in
not reporting to them. Quarrels
and bad blood suoh as came to
light at the enquiry are the seeds
which, if allowed to grow, develop
into murder in after yenra. We
have heard of other juvenile outrages of a like nature iu other parts
of the city. Then are certain boys
who make a practice of throwing
stones at passing children for their
own amusement. And these stones
sometimes strike innocent faces. It
should be the duty of every parent
and guardian of youth to institute
a dilligent enquiry into these matters
and apply the most effective remedies
tbat may be within reach. If boys
are permitted to grow up into manhood without restraint and lacking
in the ordinary instincts of humanity, there can be nothing good expected from the coming generation,
Burrard Inlet Roads.
Some person writes to the Guardian over the nom de plums of Fair
Flay, criticising The Columbian's
position on the Fort Moody road.
This person begins by accusing us of
misrepresentation, and proceeds to
misrepresent at his own sweet fill.
We have already given reasons,
wbleh seemed sufficient to ourselves
il least, why the road to Granville
ihould be eonetritoted in preference
to a road to Fort Moody, It is not
necessary now to repeat theso reasons. The Granville road has been
let, and we nre sure this fact will
be received with great satisfaction
by every uitizen of Now Westminster as well ns the people of Granville, Moodyville and Hastings,
But it is not true, as Fair Flay
states, that The Columbian has
ever opposed the construction of a
road to Port Moody. On the contrary, we have persistently advo-
cuted the construction of such a
roid, and have frequently pointed
out the utter insufficiency of the
present one for the growing traffic.
But we have opposed the appropriation of any large sum of money
out of the provincial revenuo for
that purpose, uud we still oppose it.
Tn the present uncertainty we hold
tlmt the government would not be
justified in making a first clnss
gravel road to Port Moody. That
would involve tho expenditure of
not much less than $20,000, and
when completed the road might be
found to have been located altogether iu the wrong place. It is a no
torious fact Unit the people of Fort
Moody aro themselves quite divided
about the road. Those who own
property in the vicinity of the post
office maintain tlmt the road should
go there; Senator Mclnnes and
others declare tbat the future city
will certainly stand at the head of
the inlet, and thut the road should
go over the Thompson trail; Capt.
Clarke, and a large majority of the
actual residents, are in favor of the
new Clarke trail. As a matter of
fact the town of Port Moody is
over five miles long, extending from
west of the North Road to beyond
the head of the inlet, and no person can say with any certainty
where tbe .Port Moody of the future
will be. While these uncertainties
exist, nnd these conflicting interests,
it would not be wise to expend
money, much needed for road-making
elsewhere, in building an expensive
road to Port Moody. The policy
advocated by The Columbian is
that a fairly good road be built
with all possible despatch from this
city to Port Moody, over the Clarke
trail. The road should be such as
will enable traffic to pass over it
witli reasonable comfort. There
are many icasonB for believing that
the uncertainty to which we have
referred will be dispelled before the
preaent year closes, and tho government will be ablo then to decide
intelligently and definitely where
tbe trunk road to Port. Moody shall
run. For the present we suggest
the Clarke trail because it is the
shortest and easiest route to the
present town of Fort Moody. It
was recommended by a competent
engineer, and has been gazetted by
the government. Moreover it can
be mnde a road at less cost probably,
than nny other. Looking at this
matter as a citizen of New West
minster, and from a New
Westminster standpoint, we Bhould
he inclined to advocate the
expenditure of a large sum on
bhe Port Moody road. Indeed wo
should advocate tho construction of
many other roads leading from this
city to every settlement within
trading distance. But The Columbian is not the organ of New
Westminster. Its constituency ie
British Columbia, and particularly
the mainland. We cannot shut our
eyes to tho fact that throughout
tho whole of tbis laige and populous
and growing district there is scarcely
a road over which one can travel
with any comfort during more than
bix months in the year. In the
interior beyond Yule matters are
not much belter. If the province
had revenue enough we should certainly urge the construction of a
good road to every settlement. But
our revenue is limited. The portion
of the dock money ($250,000) falling to the mainland would not be
sufficient to put our road system
in thorough order. But even thin
sum cannot all go to road-making.
There is a new gaol and land office
wanted for thiiT city; there will be
required a largo appropriation for
enlarging and improving the provincial asylum; a new hospital is
needed, We presume all theso permanent improvements, as well as
many others throughout the mainland, will be paid out of the $250,-
000 dock money. When the balance comes to be applied to the
mainland road system it will be
found much too narrow to cover th«
ground, As a provinoial journal
The Columbian is just ss much
concerned for tbe interests of the
rural settlements as for the interests of this city, and it is bound to
deal cautiously with tbe expenditure of the revenues appropriated
to roads. There are settlements
across the river which have been in
existence, and which have heen
yielding revenue for many years,
and to-day tbey have no better roads
than Fort Moody. We cannot consistently advocate ■ policy which
would give Port Moody a first-class
road while these old settlements are
left to shift with mire and mud.
Some time ago those specialty interested in Fort Moody subscribed a
sum of money (about $1500) towards
making the proposed road, and we
understand the government agreed
to mako an appropriation of $2000.
We nre of opinion that $3,500 is
not sufficient for the purpose, and
we think the government appropriation should be at least doubled.
For $5,500 the rond could be made
good enough for present requirements, aud in future expenditures
the government would be guided by
circumstances. There is one fact
which must not bo lost sight of,
that we must hnve a pa&Bable road
to Fort Moody without any unnecessary delny.

Horsb Dbowned. — Ou Saturday
morning Mr. Holt went up to tlio
Brunette Mills with his express wagon.
He loft the horse aud wagmi standing
on the bridge until he could got a key
to open the gate. The horse became
tired waiting, and began tn bnck for
the purposo of turning. Tho wagon
went over the' bridge, dragging tho
horse after it, both going into the
Brunette. Mr. Holt jumpod in for
the purpose of cutting the horse louse,
in which he was unsuccessful,, nnd
both horse and wagon went to tho
bottom. Mr. Holt himself had a very
narrow escape, The wagon and harness were afterwards recovered. The
horse was worth about $200. ■;>
Public. Accounts.—The ^statement
of appropriation .and expotirtijureior
the five months ending with 30th November last has beon before the house.
The result is gratifying. In the fivo
months tho racoipts of; revenue were
$4000 in excess of tho last six months
.pf 1882, and if it had been'possible to
brine the statement down., to Dec. 31st,
the incroase for the half yoar would
havo been $10,000 The estimate of
revenue from the solo-of 'lands in 1883
was. $30,000, and we find that for the
five months above noted the revenue
from that source alono-was $31,327, or
in.excess of'the estimate for the year
by more than .$4,000! No fact more
clearly demonstrates the progress the
country is making than this.—Colonist,

Railway Construction.—A telegram from Port Moody, published
elsewhere, says that the rails connecting the track from that place to Lytton
were laid at noon yesterday, nnd a
train was then loading fj-r Lytton.
The railway will cross tho Frasor about
0 miles from Lytton, and there are still
about 3 or 4 miles of track to be laid
before the river is reached ou this Bide.
Mr. J. McMullen, who has Lhe contract for the Fraaer River bridge, expects to begin putting it up nbout the
1st of March, and will probably complete the job'in 6 or 7 weeks. This
bridge is of iron, built on the cantilever principle. It wns mndo in Ena-
Innd, nnd now lies nt Port Moody. It
is 615 feet long, and contains 108 tons
steel, 420 tons wrought iron, and 17
tons cast iron, and is in nll about 620
tons nf 2240 lbs. It may he oxpected,
therefore, that trains will run through
from Port Moody to Lytton some time

New Land Act.—On Monday the
promier brought down a new laud act,
the principal clauses of which are given
by the Colonht as follows: Pre-emptions are not to exceed 320 acres in
extent to the northward and eastward
of tho Cascades, or 100 acrua iu the
rost of the province. The pre-emptor
shall continuously occupy the land
pre-empted, either himself, his family
or his agent, but an aborigine or. a
Chinaman shall not be considered nn
agent. No person will be allowed to
hold two claims by pre-emption. The
price of pre-empted land will be $1 an
acre payable in tour equal annual instalments of 25 cents each. The rate
at whioh unsurveyed, unoccupied and
unreserved, crown lands will bo Bold is
fixed at 82.50 an acre (to ha paid for,.
10 per cent, at the time of making tho
application nud the remaining 00 per
cent, when the survey shall hnve been
accepted); not less than 100 acres will
he disposed <<f nor mora than C40 acres
under one application. Water privileges, drainage and dyking, timber nnd
hay leases and highways and free
miners' rights are severally provided
for, aud the lieu I. -governor in council
will make freo grants of crown landB
fnr the encouragement of itemigration
or other purposes of public advantage.
the distributing point for the mainland of British Columbia, and its being
such can only be secured nnd maintained by possessing the most direct
and rapid mean* of communication
with the surrounding country; and
whereas the money expended on iin-
prtiveiner-ts at Port Moody last year
amounted to $100,000, and wliich will
undoubtedly be increased- by half a
million this year, indicates thnt a large
traffic will exiBt between the two towns
if thero are suitable means of transportation; and whereas the steam ferry
lately establiulied hy the present government, the city *»f New Westminster
und adjacent municipalities (the govornment appropriating $1000 and tho
municipalities nearly $2000) if connected wiih a good road at this city,
would attord the easiest means of
reaching Port Moody, and would be a
great' benefit not only to the^ two
towns but also to the whole district-
Therefore be it resolved that a. delegation be sent to our local government
requesting the appropriation of a lufli-
cicnt sum to build a good road on the
shortest and best possible route be*
tween the two places."
Speaking to the resolution Mr. Cunningham Baid we had been led by the
government to expect a large expenditure on the mainland, and ho believed
We were entitled to this road. He was
alud to seo thai the contract had been
let for the new Granville read via
False Creek. He hoped to see a rood
made to every town and settlement of
importance ,in. the distriot. There
would be a large immigration this year,
and many of the new comers would
settle at Port Moody, It waa not fair
to expect that the citizens would sub-
scribe for roads out of their own pockets. We were taxed for municipal
works, and it was the business of the
government to build our mads.
Mr. 'ft. H. Webb snid everybody
knew that a good road to Port Moody
could not be built for $5,000 (the sum
originally staged iti the resolution).
We should n-.tnak less than $10,000.
If we asked $5,000 we would not get
more than $2,600, but if we asked $10,-
000 we might get $5,000.
Sergeant MoMurphy thought we
should not ask any specific sum. We
wanted a road, and $5,000 would not
make it.
Mr. Geo. Turner, C. E., was called
upon to givo his opinion respecting the
probable cost of the road. He said it
depended altogether <jn what road they
wanted. The difficulty in the way of
making a road to Fort Moody had
been'the various conflicting interests.
He bolioved the road would have been
built loug ago if tho people had been
united. He had reported on three
different routes terminating at three
different points, and the conflicting
interests wore such that the government had great difficulty in deciding
wliere the r.ind should be. The resolution should state what road is wanted. (Mr. Deane aiid they wanted the
shortest road to Port Moody). Mr.
Turner, Ah! but whero ia Port Mitodyf
He had seen mans nf Port Mooily six
milea lung, and the question wns,
what point in this sin mites is Port
Moody. The coat of tho rond would
also depend on its chii'fubferiind width.
- Mr. J. E. Lord thought the delegates should ask for u specific sum.
Until we had :t mol we could not got
to Port Moody. The deputation should
go with a set purpose, and should not
return until ■theiV object wna accomplished.
Mr. W. B. Townsend thmight'the
object, of the meeting w.is to yet a
road to the selfl-d part of Port
Moody. Tliat would bo over the
Clarke trail.
Mr. duo. Hen ity said the intention
uf the resolution •■•an to make the
Clarke trail. Tin mi interested in Port.
Moody had Hiibn-.-i iU-il about $1500 towards tho construction of this road.
He and Messrs. Dul'eck and L-uidbum
liad examined the route, nnd they considered it would not be un expensive
work. Capt. Clarke had agread to
make the road through his uwn property. Thin would leavo only a mile
and live-eighths fur the government to
build.
Mr. Kennedy understood the object
of tho meeting was tu make a rond to
Port. Moody, but he found it was to
mnke a road to a certain property. He
was opposed to this. If lhey wont before the government with such a
scheme it would be looked upon as a
hole-in-tho-eorner affair. He thought
the sum should nut bo mentioned. No
rond could he built to Port Moody for
lesn than $15,000.
The Mayor and Messrs. Cunningham and Johnston were appointed a
deputation to wait on the government,
aud the meeting adjourned.

PUBUO MEETING ON MONDAY NICHT.
In response to a requisition the
Mayor culled a public meeting in the
Hyack Hal) last Monday night to consider the Port Moody road question.
There wns a, fair attendance. Tlio
Mayor occupied the chair, and Mr.
T. J. Trapp acted as secretary. 'After
some delay Mr. lt. W. Deano said the
object of the meeting was well known,
Every one knew we wanted a road to
Port Moody. It was our interest to
have connection with every centre of
trade, and at present thore seemed to
be no connection between this city and
Port Moody whatever.
Mr. Jas, Cunningham then came
forward with two resolutions. He
wished to say, In the Arst place, that
this was not a political meeting. The
last public meeting in tho interests of
tiie Port Moody road had ended' iu an
attack on the government - by Mr.
Bute, a result which he, as one of
those who called it, never anticipated
and very muoh regretted, He hoped
nothing of the kind would occur to*
night. We were here neither to praise
nor blame the govornment, but to ask
for what we consider our rights. * The
two resolutions wen then rend, and
after a good deal of discussion (he following was adopted:
"Whereas the future prosperity of
New Westminster eity and district
depends largely upon tht former being
Chinese Question-
Tim select committee appoint ei
some time ago by the Huuse to prepare an address to the Governor-General'ull the Chinese questiou havo made
n report. It ie quito voluminous, and
we can find room only for the following extracts. Tho address directs attention to the growing evil of Chinese
immigration, reuiipitiililtt-*, post legis
hitiou un the subject aud reiterates
the absolute necessity of reMrictive
legislation to reflate the influx. It
estimates the number of Chinese in
the province at from 15,000 to 18,000,
the majority of whom were imported
by contractors in a state of comparative destitution, nnd i wing to scarcity
of work in the ■wiuui- mouths a large
number of them are left destitute
through the proviuce at that season ef
the year. It also adverts to this class
being a source of continual expense,
especially in connection with the ud-
ministraiion of justice, owing to their
want of veracity and the employment
of interpreters. It further states they
evade taxation, neglect their sick and
effect injuriously the influx of white
population, and their habits and associations are degrading, thst they ara

The New School Aet.
THE. PROVINCIAL SECRETARY'S EXPLANATION.
Hon. Mr. Robson moved (ho second
reading of the bill to amend the public
schools act, 1870. He Baid that section 1 made a slight alteration in enabling'tbe governor in council to appoint two or more examiners. He
thought the house would aee the necessity of having more than two examiners. Section 2 provides that in Victoria, Westminster and Nanaimo there
shall be six trustees. A general desire had been expressed to increase the
number of trustees in rural districts;
but he feared au increase in outlying
districts would at present bo impracticable. Iu the cities, however, it was
different, and it was highly desirable
that there should be au increaso. It
would do away with a centralization of
school control and more genorally diffuse the interest felt in education. The
mode proposed fur holding elections,
would, he believed, be mure desirable
than tlie preseut mode. Seo. 10 allowed single women who wero householders or freeholders to vote, aud the
wives of householders and freeholders
will have a voto. In other words, the
mother of children would havo a right
to vote as woll as her husband and
thus counterbalance the votes of electors who hid no children. This provision, lie thought, would result advantageously to tho educational system.
Women generally showed more interest than men iu such matters, and
were fully competent to judge who
wonld mako the best members of truB-
tee boards. Sec. 12 confines the right
to r.ct as trustees to males of 21 years
of age and requires that all taxes shall
he paid before a person shall he eligi
Ido to be elected. It would be us welt
to take oiieuep ut a titnound first admit w-ffilen tii vine bofore making them
eligible as members of the boards. No
dismissal of a teacher should be filial
until approved by thu superintendent
of education. He believed that in »
few districts thu teachers had beeu* Uio
much under the. domination of the
trustees; although generally the leach
era had been treated fairly. This bill
gave a dismissed toucher the right of
appeal to the superintendent of education, who could inquire into the mutter and if he found he could not bring
»hout|aT#rfl|-crfp-uditimi of feeling
other arrangements Would have to be
mnde,. Hut it' the teacher had not the
right bf appeal he might be left unjustly under the stigma of having heen
dismissed. The teachers of high
schools will be appointed by tbe lieut.-
governor in council and a tuition fee,
to be fixed by thu trustees and tho
superintendent, would be payable in
respect of scholars. Tho present act
had placed but one hitzh school within
the roach of the peoplo, and that waa
at Victoria. It might bu said, extend
the system; but the expenditure is
very large and large as it is the government had not yet overtaken the wants
ef the country. Was tho government
justified in placing tho high school only
within the reach uf the people of one
municipality ? The government would
scarcely be justified in placing a freo
high school education within the reach
of one community when it had not
been able to place a free common
school education within the reach of
every ohild. Was it not hard that wo
ahould compel Bottlers to pay taxes
towards placing a freo high school
education within the reach of the
wealthiest and largest com mnn ity in
B. O., whilo the settler had nut plnced
within reach of his children a free
school education? The govornmont
Bought to do its duty by evory section.
It might bo an injury to many to disestablish the high school, and theref.-re
the government wuuld ask the house
to require high schools to be one-half
sustaining. The same rule would he
applied to overy othor community as
to that of Victoria. Tho half-free system would do tho high school good.
At New Westminster whole'fee system
hnd been tried. Tho school 1 hero had
47 scholars among whom wore some
from tho island. Iu ndopliiiitaiuedium
course he thought it would be found
that tho government had struck Iho
"happy mean." Tho superintendent
of education had recommended the
establishment of a high school at New
Westminster ami that could only be
done, in justice tu the rest of thb
province, by the adoption of the half-
free system.
A Substitute Tor Matches.
Countless accidents, as ovory one
knows, arise from the uao of matches.
To obtain light without employing
thein, nnd su without the danger of
Betting thlnus on Are, an ingenious
contrivance is now used by the watchmen of Paris in nll magazines whero
explosive or inflammable materials are
kept. Any one may easily mako trial
of it. Take an oblong phial of the
whitest and dearest glass, and put
into it a piece uf phoBphoruB about
the f,\-/.e of a pea, Four some olive
oil heated to. the boiling point upon
the phosphorus: fill the pliiat nbout
one-third full, and then cork it tightly.
To use.ihis novel light, romovo tho
cork, allow the air to enter the phial,
and then re cork it. The empty apace
in the phial will become luminous, and
the light obtained will bo equal to that
of a lamp. When the light grows dim,
its powor can be increased by taking
out the cork, and allowing a fresh supply of air to enter the phial. In winter it is sometimes necessary to heat,
the phial between the hands in order
to increase the fluidity of the oil. The
apparatus thus prepared may be used
for sis months,
Jail Breaking.
TWO INDIANS ESCAPE AT NANAIMO.
-In the year 1877 seven Bella Bella
Indians -were murdered by a number
of Ponelecot Indians near Active Pass.
The murder was Btttd to be committed
in retaliation for a fiendish murder of
several Penoleeot Indians by certain
Bella Bella (Northern) Indians. About
18 months ago information was giveh
to Constable Stewart that two of the
Ponelecot murderers were at the Nanaimo Camp. Thoy were speedily arrested and triod. The. evidence went
to show that Clahak und Wliattan were
present at the murder, but tho principals in tliat attroeious uct wore two
Indians named Tom Clnkia mid Eucla-
tiiw, who were then und are now un
the American Territory. Clauak and
Whattan woro duly committed for
trial. It being the intention of the
authorities to use these two Indians as
witnessesa against the principal actors
in that terrible scene enacted at Active
Pass, they were not brought to trial at
the assizes held iu June and December
last. On Monday at midnight Jailer
Stewart mnde the rounds uf the cells
and. each prisoner answered to liis
name as usual, Clahak and Whattan
with tho rest, In the morning Constable Drake opened the door uf the
cell in wliich Clahak and Whatton had
boon locked in, and politely accosted
them (with the morning salutation:
"Well'1 boyB, did -you nave a good
night's rest ?" No answer. On looking
into tho cell Constable Drake was astonished to find the birds had flown,
through a, hole in tho floor. Tho alarm
was at < onoe givon and a dilligont but
.frditless search instituted. On an examination of the cell it was found that
tho escaped prisoners had with a sharp
thin chisel cut out two of the tongued
and grooved planks about twenty
inches in length, then with a bit or
auger bored through the second and
third floor. On ono edge of tho hole
the floor waa only the thickness of the
two inch flooring planks, but at tho
:two ends and the other aide they had
to bore through an additional plank
two inches thick, thus making it four
inches thick. Over 30 auger holes
were mode through the planking and
the piece knocked out. This enabled
thehi to get on tho ground underneath
nnd thoy commenced to bore through
the two' inch planking with which the
under part of the jail was boarded up,
but finding a place where the planking
had not been carried past twu uf the
posts, they pushed oil the clapboards
and breathed the pure air of the jail
yard. Botween them and liberty however was tho high fence enclosing tlie
yawl. To get over this thoy obtained
the heavy water soaked plank lying
across tho opeu tank in the yard. It
must, have -required all their strength
and ingenuity to take this plank oil"
the tank and stand it up in tho corner
of the fence nearest the Bastion. Once
up however they would experience no
difficulty in.gaining their liberty. How
thoy got the tools is the mystery. On
Monday the wifo of Clahak paid her
usual weekly visit to the jail to see her
husband and son. She was admitted
by Constable Stewart, who felt hor
clothes but found no indications of her
having any suapicious nr tides'on'Her
person. The police are of tho opinion
that tho tools have been thrown over
thu fence in n spot prearranged, mid
that the prisoners in emptying their
cell buckets, have taken them into the
cell with them. We, howevor, think
that the woman deftly concealed them
about her person, nud left them with
tho psisoners ou her visit on Monday,
Constables Stewart and Stevenson ut
onco started iu pursuit of the escaped
prisoners, but failed to get any truce
of them. They have no doubt made
tracks to the "Yankee iJIuhie" a\n,l it
will require nn extradition warrant to
procure them. The matter was kept
quiet in tho hope that the escaped
prisoners might bo re-captured if their
Indian friends were not made aware of
thoir escape, but an official inquiry into
tlie circumstances was held by Mr.
Bray; Government Agent, on Saturday.— Nanaimo Free Press,
NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Vienna, Jan. 4.—The latest version
of the recent accident to the Cznr
says:-—The Czar was returning about
3 u'block in the afternoon uf Deo.
17th to (latchiim Palace from a shooting excursion accompanied by his
suite in eight sledges with a number
uf servants. Although darkness was
coming uu thn party noticed on the
read ahead six men apparently peasants. The Czar's aides drove forward
and ordered tho men to clear out of
tho way; tho men saluted the olficers
nnd appeared to obey the orders, but
whon the Czar's sledge came on a level
with them they suddenly wheeled
around and fired ut tho Czar thrice,
and two of them ran toward him.
Tlie horses, drawing the Imperial
sledge became frightened and galloped
Bomo hundred pacos, when the Cznr
was thrown out of tho sledge. A
bullet lodged lu tho Czar's shoulder.
The Czar's followers immediately unharnessed their sledge horses, mounted tlio animals nnd followed the
would-be-assassins who escaped in the
neighboring wood. Owing to the
doptii of tho snow pursuit was fruitless. ■ 'One of tho pursuing officers
ventured too fur and has nut returned.
London, Jan. 4.—The Teiegraph,
referring tn tho foregoing, says:—
Whether this story is true or untrue,

he promised them. Uis trial is therefore at an ond.
St. Pbhmbum, Jan. 4.-—The Nihilist proclamation announces that Colonel Sudrkin was condemned to be

attributed, is a sister of thu lady who

The Nihilist proclamation also contains a terrorist article directed against

prevails at Gatchina palace.

Relations of tno Dominion with British
Columbia woro pronounced of the most
cordial character, Owing to increase
of population amendments to the

Cetewayo's Predicament.— Politics

and the King finds himself between

the English, and the King knows weir
that, should he acquiesce, he himself
and all hia followers would be shot
down by the British troops without

the King refuse to lend tho army, he

he took hia sent by Hennie's bed, uud
talked oarnestly and lovingly to them
both.
And bo merry grew they and ho at
laat, tbat it wns dillicult to part them,
and nothing but a promise of speedy
return and a hint cf Christmas trea-
- sums for the morrow could silence
tlieir nli'ectionato entreaties for hint
to stay and purtako of their nursery
tea and cake, and dry up the tears
thnt began to fall from the wilful
wihVs eyes.
Lingering a moment under Herwald's green-franiod doorway, I heard
a key blundering in the lock, and
then camo a rush of cold wintry air,
and the hall was filled with snowy
foot-marks, und joyous whistlings, and
tlingings hither nnd thither of coats
and overwraps, and all tho hasty movements of a tired and excited party,
over whose heads I serenely looked
down, mindful of much warmth and
inward comfort.
"What are you hiding up there for,
Nell? Como down and seo what a
troop of frozen - out gardeners we
resemble, with never a whole hand
among us that is not defiled mid torn
by every species of prickly Bhrub that
Dame Nature ever invented in a fit of
spleen. Look here, and here;—do
you call this fit for a gentleman!"
And Dudley Btretched out a rusty
chill paw, well seamed with scratches,
and thrust it mischievously into my
face.
"Nothing to mine," growled Bruce.
"I shall bo obliged tu keop thom in
my pocket or wear gloves for tho next
month. I am sure we deserve a vote
of thanks from the pulpit to-morrow,
in return for till our aufturings and
labor. '■*
"Don't-bo profane, Bruce; it ijns
quite sufficient for Mr. Egerton to
make that protty little speech in the
porch. Don't you grumble; lam certain we ladies did our shnro of tho
work too. Good gracious, child,
what's that?"
Nothing, nothing—a mere trifle; it
wns only Charlie, who, from being
self-balanced ou a playful toe, had
miscalculated distance und toppled
over into the umbrella-stand, thereby
bringing on his devoted head ti shower
of bullets -from manifold hats and
caps. It wns only one uf lhe daily
chapters of nccident continually occurring, but it provoked a burst of laughter from lhe buys, and oven a smile
froni the elder ones, but only for a
minute, for iu spite of the littlo lad's
endless escapades, he wns the pet of
tho house, and as much spoiled and
cherished as Kill herself.
So, while Seymour supported him
on hia kueo in true prize-fighter's
fashion, and Halcot skillfully felt for
invisible bumps, Dudley kissed the
tears away, und Bruce fired off volleys of nut unkindly chaff.
"Now, young Mured the Unlucky,
how many bones have you broken?
You are a nice sort of chap to kuop
in a Imiwe; uot at all liko a bull in
a china shop—oh no;—-come, don't
howl, there's nothing fractured—not
even n little finger joint; but we'll
have a plaster of brown paper and
vinegar, aud pickle him well. Now
that's right," as Charlie essayed a
feeble .smile; "try another." And
Bruce, sitting down oh the matting,
contorted his faco into every possible
risible twist of which the human face
ib capable.
In the midst of tho domestic hub*
bub came the calming words, "Herwald is here."
"Herwald hero! nonsense — Herwald! Why did you not tell me before?" And Dudley, putting me
hurriedly aside, sprang up three
steps at a time, while Bruce, setting
hie face in order, and whistling carelessly an air from Meyerbeer's''Huguo-
nota," followed liim after a minute's
hesitation.
"Herwald hero!" repeated Louie, as
Halcot and Seymour dragged off Charlie in hot haste. "Herwaldl and we
are not dressed] Como along, Katie,
do."
"No such hurry," replied Kale, ns
alio tucked herself, red shawl and al),
under my nrm. "You won't git me
to dress for Herwnrld, or any other
aristocrat of the north, till I've had a
warm and a wee bit cozo with Nellie
over the drawing-room fire, after my
hard day's work; so if you're minded
to get yourself up very gnyly, it's
ill waiting for me, I can tell you."
Louie answered nothing to the implied home thrust, but sailed peacefully away,
"There goes tlio empress," whispered Katie, as she coaxed me to a low
chair and pushed hor favorite stool lo
my feet; "she'll amble before Iho
glass a full hour, I'll warrant you, before she comes down armed at all
points and prepared to conquer. What
a pity Hiich a grand, loveuble creature
as she is should bo bo full uf faults
and vanities."
"Nay, but, Kitty," I remonstrated,
"both she und wo all desire to look
our beat to-night in honor of our
long lost Herwald. Come, you are
too negligent of your outward appear*
nnce; do you know, I want my Scotch
lassie to look her bravest to-night;
■o away with you, my bonnie bird.
" 'Tie up yonr alcoves w.ih ribbon rare
And lace your bodice bluo.'"
But Katie made no movement to
go, but only rested her brown head
lovingly against my arm.
"Have you had a hnppy dny as
well as a busy one?" I asked, us I
stroked the smooth fresh face.
"Happy! yes—well, I oan scarcely
tell; I know I worked steadily and
prieked my fingers, and those girls
with  the  fair hair and blue huts—
what do you call them? "
"Belle and Ada Thornton," I suggested.
"Yes, Thornton, that wns the name
• -well, they laughed at mo and called
me^awkwnrd, till they almost sent me
daft with their unmannerly conduct,
nnd in ohurah tool And then Bruce
came up nnd asked me why I looked
so glum, or something like it; aud
when I said it was not seemly making
such clack and and riot in a sacred
place, they went off tittering and
laughing and staring nt tno ns if I
were a barbarian at least, and I wns
Juat going to get up end nek them if
Mil  were  their southern breeding,
when Bruce whispered to tho youngest
aud prettiest of them to come and
help him with somo fal-lal or other,
and we saw neither of tnein again till
we came home."
"Ada, I think you said?"'
"Yes, Ada, the one with tho long
curls—Bruce was going to see her
homo, only Dudley begged him not to
break up the party,''—and aa ahe said
this, the smooth face broke into hard
stem linos under my carressing hand.
"And so yuu felt angry with Bruce,
dearie, because he preferred the society of a harmless girl who gives him
plenty of winning smiles nnd words—
too many perhaps—to that of nn old
playmate, who Biiuba him—it is an
ugly word, lassie, but it is a true one
—at their first meeting, and has done
nothing but glower and louk distant
ever since; indeed, I begin to take the
poor lad's part, fur ho greeted you in
all true faith and amity, and bus met
with no response. Really, cousin, I
shall turn the tables now, aud ask, is
tliis your northern breeding?"
Katie reddened mid bit her lip, nud
muttered about the subject not being
agreeable to her, and then, as if fearing she had hurt me, put up her face
to bo kissed.
"And so wo are all to fall in love
with Herwald, nro we?"
I smiled at the changed topic nnd
the question, but let it pass till bIio
repeated it.
"And bo we nro all to fall in love
with Herwald, are wo, Nellie?"
"Only ono nt a time, I hope, or
he'll scarcely know what to do!" responded Herwald himself from tlie
back of my chair, behind whioh he
had stolen unporceived in the twilight;
"only one at a time, please, Miss
Crmeron, or I Bhall have my hands
full indeed;" and Horwald's f»co in its
mock gravity and distress was so innocently provocative of laughter that'
Katie's rang through llio room clear
us a dell, ns ahe jumped up without the
shadow of a blush to givo him her
hand.
"Come, that's well, waiting for no
introduction or fuas, and just as cousins Bhould meet."
"Cousins, Mr. Delorme?"
"Herwald, Katio, Herwald! lot us
have no nonsense; have wo not known
each other by report at least hal-Uour
lives? Why, Nellie will tell you 1
recognized you at first Bight an hour
ago through tho church window, and
drew a touching portrait of you on my
return; and ns for cousins, why, I nm
adopted brother to all the Mortimers,
girlB, boys, and babies—nm I not,
Dudley?"
■ "Certainly, by all moans; but I
have not the least idea what the question wna."
"Of course not; every ono knows
you nre chronically deaf. Never mind,
we undoratatid each other, mid shall
bo capital friends in no time, You'll
promise lo liko me no end, won't you,
Cousin Knlie?"
ludeed I will, Herwald," replied
Katie, frankly, and with a world of
honest truth in her eyes; "I always
know when I liko u person directly,
aud I nm suro I shnll you." And so
saying, she gnve him her hand again
in an unaffected way that was quito
delicious to see.
Now, Kitty-" snid Dudley, laying
hands on her with gentle force, us she
was about to reseat herself ou her
stool, "I nm not going to allow you
to desecrate Nellie's pretty drawing-
room uny longer with that rough
shawl und those snow-boots. If you
don't go and nsk Louio to furbish
yeu up a little with souio of her finery,
I will show you how fierce I enn look."
Katie Eeemed inclined to rebel; but
on Herwald rising aud setting the
door open for her, alio made u virtue
of necessity, nnd tripped laughingly
awny.
"What do you think of our fashionable cousin, Delorme?" nsked Bruce,
who tiad paused her on the threshold.
"Who? Kate Cameron) For heaven's sake, don't call me Delorme,
Bruce—there's n dear old boy;" und
Herwuld looked in his faco with his
most winning smile.
"I think she is the brightest girl
I have seen for many n long year, und
rich with a beauty that does not belong to feature or form. I congratulate you on your friend, Nellie. "
"Don't you think her vory like
Keith?" asked Dudley.
"Yes, especially about the eyes and
forehead. By the bye, when did you
hear from him hist?'
"Not since the 27th of last month;
but I suppose wo shall have lottera
regularly by every mail, lie's nn
awfully good correspondent is Keith,
and can always God matter out of
nothing, which to my mind is a true
proof of cleverness; und a letter from
hiin ia Bure to be hailed ns a fund uf
amusement through the house, from
Charlie upward,"
"Could you not borrow a few hints
from him then! your letters are won
dertully terse, their staple content*
being generally a kind inquiry after
my health, a few curt sentences on
every-day affairs, and a nourishing
Dudley Ellis Mortimer at the end, the
last being larger than all the rest put
together. A few less flourishes, my
dear fellow, aud a little more sentiment, would greatly improve the tone
of tho whole. Could you not liy an
anuocdoto or twu—or even a short
spell of poetry fur a change!"
"Nuy, nuy, that sort of thing is
nut in my lino, the factory haa beaten
everything but hard facts out of me;
besides,  you   do quite  enough  for
both."
"ilarrin' the poetry, I suppose?"
"Burriu' nothing."
"Then I indignantly beg to repudiate the charge.   I never quoted poetry
in my lifo except to a few brainless
Byronic young ladies, who only h'd
their blue huse by a decent length of
raiment, and invariably parted their
hair en  onn side a la Eliza Cook
poetry, rubbish."
"Now, Nellie, I call you to witness
if thia bo uot nn infamous libel on
my memory. Do you not know ns
woll as possible thut hoRpent the whole
of nu evening in thu Hursl*drawing-
room spouting whole pages out of thut
blessed 'In Memorinm' till he reduced
mc nearly to a state of imbecility, and
you were silly enough to compliment
liim on his retentive memory, and
begged him to go on, ond now you
hear what lie says?"
"Oh, thut is a different sort of thing
altogether; we were regularly descanting on tho beauties of Tennyson, doing
him thoroughly, in fact. By the bye,
we never finished that discussion,
Nellie; you know it was to be continued in our next."
"Which is not to be on Christmas-
eve, I can tell you; I will have none
of that morbid melancholy stuff—"
"What!" cried Horwald, tossing up
his head with the impetuosity of a
young war-horse rushing to tlio charge,
"say that over again, Dudley."
"No, pax, pax—here comes Loo."
