current Events and Opinions.
Tlio Tories, or tlie nristocrntic
pnrty in the late election in Great
Britain, hold out an indefinite sort
of prospect, that if retained in
power they would attempt some*
thing in the way of protection in
England. The fart/iug interest is
very much depressed in that country, chiefly, it is believed in this
part of the world, by the depreciation of silver, which iu effect gives
a large bonus for the introduction
of the agricultural products of India. But the Tories do not take
tliat viow of the case. They attribute the depression to free trade.
By proposing to substitute fair
trade for that principle they expected to catch the agricultural
voto. But the Tories did not secure a majority in the late election.
The agricultural districts, or tlie
counties, instead of rallying to
their support, went against them.
Most of the strength which they
have received came, curiously
enough, from the cities and towns,
where democracy was supposed to
be rampant. The Tories can only
hopo to carry on the government
either by an alliance with the Whigs
or the aristocratio element of the
Liberal party, or tho Parnellites.
The great majority of the nobility
of England not long ago belonged
to the Whig party. There were no
Tories in the time of William HI
Wt the adherents of James II,
, ^tt0jiave, however, of late years
Mi** """-reusing in numbers, in obe-
"r-ifc. well understood law of
J^IWlh these possibilities
rarigd^&i'tlie side of tho Tories
any fiafl-M legislation that they may
propose is invested with more or less
interest for ns. Tho report is that
a bill will be introduced in parliament, immediately on its assemblage, authorizing the imposition of
duties on imports into Great Britain from countries imposing duties
on exports from Great Britain. It
is further stated that the measure
will be founded on the report of
Lord Iddesleigh's (formerly Sir
Stafford Northcote) commission on
trade, which found lirst, that English depression is due primarily to
foreign competition. The remedy
proposed may be regarded somewhat in the light of heroic treatment. Thore can not be much
doubt of the fact that it is intended
to roach the United States nnd
force us into some concessions on
the tariff question. It may lie admitted at the start, that if any
arrangement can be made in this
connection thut can be demonstrated
to be mutually beneficial, there
would not be much trouble in acceding to it. The trade between England and America is thn largest iu
the world. England is our heaviest
customer. But it hns not yet been
shown that there is uny unfairness
in the matter. The error is constantly encountered that England is
a free trade country and that as a
consequence all American products
are admitted there, while we tax
everything that comes from Great
Britain. But such is very far from
being the case. The only difference
in tho English tariff now, and that
which preceded the repeat of the
corn laws, is that only twenty-two
articles pay duties, instead of nearly
a thousand formerly. In this arrangement it fell to the lot of American wheat, meat and some otfier
products to get on tho free list,
This exemption was not set up out
of nny special friendship for the
United States, hut to cheapen food,
which had become too dear in England, and threatened to weaken
British supremacy in manufacturing by necessitating an'increase of
the wages of all operatives. But a
great many other American products aro taxed heavily. Among
them may he mentioned tobacco in
all its forms, smi If, dried fruit,
chicory, otc. The gross amount of
revenue collected at thu custom
houses of Grent Britain for tho fiscal year ending on the 31st of
March, 1884, was £19,701,000 or
$98,505,000. This is a pretty
round sum for a free trade country
to collect in customs dues. Further, it will probably be a revelation to some theorists that the
groater part of this sum is derived
from American avticlos. The revenue drawn from tobacco and snuff
alone in the year 1881 amounted to
to £9,088,477 or $45,442-385. The
other groat items of the English
tariff are tea, coffee, wine and
spirits. But all of them do not
yield us much as American tobacco
and snuff. In addition to this a
large number of our products is
practically prohibited in England
by reason of its high tariff. They
aro ale, beer, spirtis aud mult. We
collcut more at our custom houses
than Great Britain. Thc amount
collected during the year ending on
tho 30th of June last wus _ 181.-
471,939.34, not   quite double   thu

figures in England. That difference constitutes the sole divergence
between the fiscal systems of the
two nations. It will nt once be
seen that there is not the radical
antagonism between them which it
is so much the fashion to assert.
Our tariff hus lessened the consumption of the cheaper articles of English manufacture. But all the
higher products are still imported.
The greater part of the duties
which we collect does not come out
of English products by any means,
Fifteen per cent, only of all ■ the
duties are derived from wool and
its manufactures. This may be set
over to English account, as also
the 7 per cent, derived from iron
and steel manufactures, and the 6
per eent. from cotton manufactures.
The great bulk of our duties is
derived from sugar—that is to say
29 per cent.—but that only partly
falls on Great Britain, or rather
her West Indian possessions. On
the other hand, there are a great
many articles' on our free list either
of English production or monopoly
—such as indigo, drugs, tin ore,
bars, blocks or pigs, quinia, now
largely, grown in India, and a multitude of other articles. It is very
likely that if the national books
on both sides could be balanced,
England would have very little to
make complaint about, Of course
if the government of that, nation
should start out on what may be
called commercial reprisals, she
must expect the counter-move. One
thing, however, may be assumed,
that a tax on American wheat or
meat will not improve the condition
of the English farmer so long as he
has to contend with products of
India, cheapened by the war or
silver.—*?. F, Bulletin.
Kingston Military College.
The Kingston Military College came
in for a large amount of praise from
Sir Andrew Clarke, of the Britiih War
Office, who says in a letter to tho
Minister of Defence of Viotoria, Australia : ' 'The course of civil engineering
at Kingston is so good that the graduates of the college have no difficulty in
finding employment. Indeed they are
smiufht for, uot only in Canada, but in
the United States. The loyalty of
their engagements, and integrity in
their profession and accuracy in the
details of their work, engendered by
the habits of discipline and the general
tone of their college lifo, strongly
recommends them for posts of trust
and responsibility. I have several
young otKcers from Kingston College
serving under my command (one is my
aide-de camp) who have received direct
commissions from the college into tho
Royal Enginoers, nud recently, under
my advice, to remedy the death
of young officers in tho corps,
eleven graduates have been gazetted to
the Royal Engineers, while others have
been posted to tho artillery and infantry." Sir Andrew recommends the
establishment of a similar college in
Australia; but suggests that it should
bo made self-supporting, the fees charged to cover its cost— Toronto Mail.
Manitoba Matters.
WufHiPKd, Deo. 28.—Winnipeg is
iu the height of the Christmas season,
and very pretty and very attractive
the city looks in its holiday attire.
Business ia brisk, far batter in fact
thnn it has beeu at nny timo since the
days of the late lamented "boom."
The crop has been on the whole a good
one, notwithstanding the damage done
by the unusually early frost of hut
autumn. Large districts escaped the
blighting touch of the "cold wove"
entirely, and most farmers had sown
at least a part of their crop so early
that it escaped altogether, or almost,
uninjured. There has never been
such a quantity of "No, 1 hard" for
snlo in this province. The yield was
unusually bounteous—forty bushels to
the acre und even higher being quite a
common occurrence. Prices have been
good, ranging from ten to twenty per
cent, higher than last year. For tho
first time, therefore, in her history,
Manitoba has the satisfaction of feeling that she has really heraelf contributed something towards hor own
maintenance. Heretofore the people
of this province have been largely dependent upon Eastern contributions
for support, Wu have been living
more or less on the expenditures of the
C.P.R, Now, however, the province
has secured a fair start, niid hereafter
will uud'-iihtudly hold its own. Mixed
fanning is being generally resorted to
by settlers, and next year we ahall
have more thau wheat to export, The
home market is now amply supplied
by our own producers. Meat, vegetables, butter, cheese, which a few years
ago wero almost entirely supplied by
outside (inducers, are now laid down
at our doors by our own farmers. The
farmers themselves are living much
mure comfortably as a result of their
sensible abandonment of "wheat manufacturing." Buttar has already been
shipped from this province to British
Columbia most profitably, A wealthy
Faoilio const firm is now making arrangements for the establishment uf a
purchasing nguiioy in the Northwest,
so thai i-exi year a regular trade will
be established betwoen the prairies
nml thu Western province, The enormous quantity of money put in circulation in this country during the sum*
mar on account of the rebellion is of
course an important factor in the present revival of business. Farmers and
others went in for "freighting," etc,
thus securing ready mousy, which, in
addition to the returns from their
farms, has enablet them to pay off
long outstanding accounts. General
relief has, i f course, followed. The
hopeful and cheerful spirit now abroad
among our people augurs well for the
future, inosinuon as it is evident that
the settlers of the country must be our
only really valuable immiuration
agency. —Globe Cor.

Saturday Mornli.K. Jan. 1». IHKU.
A paragraph appeared in this paper not long ago in which certain
statements were made, on the authority o£ a letter in the Seattle
Post,   respecting    the    decline   of
Whatcom,    ft was stated therein
that tho voting power of Whatcom
had declined from 203 in 188*1 to
9f>, and tho assessment from over
#500,000 to less than .-?CO,000. The
Whatcom Reveille of tho KLh inst.
takes exception to these statements,
and asserts that the authority from
which  we quoted  has a lirst-class
reputation for "clear-cut, systematic,
i   monumental lying."   Our Whatcom
i   cotemporary declares that the assess-
' ment for 1885 was i?;WO,000 instead
of §60,000, and tlmt the legal votin,
1   power is as  much as 200.    There
was certninly no wish on our part
:    to   exaggerate    the   shrinkage   of
;   AVliatcom, and  we now cheerfully
j    aud frankly give  the version  put
forward by the ambitious city's own
organ.  	
The result of thc mayoralty contest in Toronto is a distinct triumph
for good government. The candi-
! dates were W. H. Howland and
' Alex. Manning. Mr. Manning was
. mayor of Toronto last year, and
i came out with the promise of hearty
j support from the liquor manufacturers and dealers, and the ring men.
It is well known that in Toronto
the whisky men are very numerous
| and wealthy, and they seemed to
believe that they would without
doubt be able to carry the election
against Mr. Howland, who was supported by the temperance party and
thoso who were opposed to the influence of the ring, lt is stated
that about 1,000 women voted at
this election, and it is believed nearly
every one of them voted for the
successful candidate. On the Saturday preceding tlie election the
Globe said : "Never before was the
liquor trade so absolutely unanimous in favor of one man as it is in
favor of Mr. Manning." But it has
found tbat the sentiment of the
people of Toronto is too strongly in
favor of good government to yield
to any seltisb organization.
The City Election.
It seems to have been tlie opinion
of a large  number of   ratepayers
tbat the election of Mr. Dickinson
to the civic chair for 1886 would be
accomplished without their assistance, and that  the expenditure of
tlieir votes on his behalf would be
useless.    The candidature of   Mr.
Kennedy  was certainly ill-advised,
and  the mere circumstance of his
having been brought out under tlie
auspices of the Guardian was in itself sutlicient to accomplish his defeat.    Tlie consequence of this feeling of security on lhe part of Mr.
Dickinson's friends is tlmt the mayoralty  vote is  very   small,    It is
large enough, however, lo prove two
things: It proves that the mayor
still retains the confidence of u very
largo majority of the electors, and
that the persistent and sometimes
scandalous attacks made upon him
by the Guardian were powerless to
move public sentiment against him.
We do not  know that the Mayor is
at all  thin  skinned, but there are
fow people who caro to be slandered
by a public newspaper, oven if it is
known lo be without influence ■ and
Mayor Dickinson must liedittm-cmMy
constituted  from   the   majority of
men if he does not appreciate the
distinct rebuke to his traducer contained   in   Thursday's  vote.     Thc
same remarks apply with equal forco
to the other members of the council.
With   the single exception of  Mr.
Hendry, every member of the old
council has been reelected by a good
majority.    And the defeat of Mr.
Hendry is by no means an evidence
of disapproval of liis past acts or
those of   the council.   Indeed he
was a very valuable member of the
hoard, and  his defeat is to be regretted.    But Mr. Hendry was tbe
victim of one circumstance—he is a
member of the New Westminster
it Port Moody Railway Company,
and  that company has applied to
tlio city to relieve it of its charter
for wliich it asks $800.   This is undoubtedly the cause of his defeat.
The ratepayers were afraid that he
might favor tho purchase of  the
charter, and the voice of the people
is vory decidedly opposed to anything of the sort.   It may be fairly
asserted, therefore, that the «eneral
course pursued by the mayor and
council  of  1885 has been emphatically endorsed and approved by the
people by whose authority they aot
HfHMUte the general polioy has been
approved, and the organ whioh hal
beeu throwing mud at them has
beeu rebuked, it does not follow
that tliere is no chanco for improvement upon tho record of tlie past
year, There were grounds for some
of tho charges brought against the
council by Mr. Kennedy in his
nomination speech, and now that
the members have boon re-elected,
we hope the experience gained last
year may not bo thrown away. During the past summer no ono could
help observing that the sanitary
laws were either imperfect or imperfectly enforced. And there
were other bylaws and regulations
against evil practices which might
have been put in operation to the
advantage of tho city. The dens of
iniquity down in tho swamp, which
were also mentioned in Mr. Kennedy's speech, should bo suppressed,
or at least made very uncomfortable
places of resort. They are certainly
subject to police inspection, and if
that wero made frequently the police courts might reveal some facts
that would startle the city and per
haps rouse it to u sense of the ox-
tent to which this blighting curse
has already grown under the policy
of nonintervention. There never
wus a council so good that it could
not be improved. Tbe city council
for 1886 enters upon its duties with
tho knowledge that it possesses tho
confidence of the people, and we
hope its record this year will be
such as to leave no room whatever
for adverse criticism.

Report of Finance Committee*
rnHK BALANCE OF CASH ON HAND
J_ and at credit in Bank of B.C., lst
January, 188">, was §1,813,33 from wliich,
however, must he deducted $1,020, as
this amount was fnr licenses for the lirst
six months iu ISSo, and does not belong
to tlie revenue of 1S84. This leaves tlie
municipality, on the 1st January, 1885,
in debt $106,07 and with accounts unpaid, According to tiio statement, to the
amount of $2^3112,02.
In order to carry ou the business of
the City, money had to bo raised, which
was done by means of overdrafts on the
Bunk, amounting to $000,80, ou the collateral security nf a note given by the
Mnyor k Finance Committee in their
personal names,
During 1885 tho expenses incurred in
tlio passing, -le., of the Laud Act of 1884
amounted to $720.72 and tho expenses of
advertising the same amounted to §4*2*2.-
'22. Tliese sums, amounting to$l,148.0-l,
will ho deducted from what the laud
Miles amount tn. The sale of the lauds
did not tako place till the27tli December,
tlie 1st payment from which— $1,402.00 --
lius been received, which will explain
why these amounts wero paid out of the
ordinary income. In addition to those
Items the freight ou the steam Arc engine,
$587.80, has also V'-'n puid out of tho
ordinary revenue, when it should have
been paid oat of tho money raised for the
purchase. Adding these amounts to the
Btilunco of Cash in Hand and in the Batik
wu find a tutal balance, 31st Dec, of
83-287.05, at whioh dato tho outstanding
und unpaid accounts amount to$l,013.78.
Tlio amounts in tho Statement of Liabilities; for City Barrister for expenses
of legislation, $074.70, and printing and
advertising Sales Account, $200.75, are
ijuite properly not included in the accounts payable, as thoy will be met out
of the proceeds of tlio Land Sales.
Owing to the present Council taking
ollice when there wero ao funds on hand,
they could not carry on any work or improvement till late in tho season, and
even then every outlay had to bo very
carefully considered.
Wo can congratulate the ratepayers
with tho good showing wo aro able to
make, and trust that the incoming Council for 1880 will be ablo to make as good
a showing, ami on ns sound a basis.

Granville School.—Wo learn that
one of the uhjects uf Hon. Mr. Rub-
sou's visit to Granville lust week was
to select a site for a new school house.
The building which has done duty as a
schnul house all these years is a small
one helouging to the Hastings Mill
Co., and besides being altogether ton
small for the present requirements of
that rapidly*increasing community, it
will shortly bo wiped out of existence
by tho railway, which will run right
through it. Tho government ought to
ereot such buildings thero as the
growth and prospective importance of
tho placo demands, and wc hope it
wit! seo its way clear to do so.

FRIGHTFUL TRAGEDY!
Shot  by a Madman!
STBl'ttULK FOR JIKAK LIFE!
THB  MURDERER   FOUND  DEAD.
On Wednesday night a telephone
message from Port Moody announced
thnt Messrs. Kobson und Smith had
arrived there from the North Arm,
and that Robson had been shot and
was insensible. Mr. C. G. Major and
Mr. J. C. Brown left at once for Port
Moody, taking Dr. Mclnues with them.
On arrival thero they wero horrified to
find lhat Robson was dead aud beyond
nil human aid. The facts connected
with I hia terrible tragedy will be
found in tho evidence of Mr. J. G.
Smith given boforo tho coroner.
Mr. Smith is the only surviving witness of the terrible events which took
place in the little cabin at Iho head of
the North Arm, which resulted in tho
death of two men, and came near
being even worse. The causes that
led to this shocking affair aru nut dilli-
cult to find. John D. Walker went
on a spree about the 23rd of December, and never really sobered up until
a few days ago. It is said that he
drank no liquor since Friday uf last
week. On Sunday he wont to Capt.
Peele, at the drug storo, and asked
him for something to straighten him
up as he had some very important
business which ho wanted to attend to.
Capt, Peele gavo him sume medicino
fur that purpose. On Tuesday im.-rn-
iug the three men left for the hoad of
the North Arm where Walker said he
had found a fine piece of timber laud.
They took their guns with them, expecting to do some shooting at the
same time, The rest of the story Jb
contained in Mr. Smith's sworn statement below. There is no doubt but
Walker was suffering from an attack
of delirium tremens as tho result of
his long debauch, and while his mind
was thus affected he got a notion that
foul play was intended by his companions. It is a wonder that he did
not succeed iu killing Mr. Smith as
well as his partner, for he was a strong
man and had all the odds in his favor.
We need hardly say that this shocking affair lias cast a gloom over the
whole city and vicinity, where both
Mr. Kobson and Mr. Smith were
well known.
tub inquest.
Coroner Hughes cmpanneled a jury
at tho Port Moody court house on
Thursday, composed of the following
gentlemen: S. W. Lehman, Jno.
Murray, jr., F. C. Hardy, D. Black,
F. F. Logan, Geo. Thomson, F. Scot-
noy, H. F. Currie, F. F. Nelson, Jos.
Coutey, Wm. Smithsun, J. A. Clarke
(foreman). The chief witness, of
course, was Jus. G. Smith, who funned
oneof the exploring party.
Mr. Smith said that deceased and
himself went up the north arm of Burrard Inlet, 011 tho invitation of Walker,
to hunt and prospect. They left tho
city on Tuesday morning, camped at
Morrison's old logging camp on Tuesday night, and about noon on Wednesday reached the head of the inlet;
took our things into a cabin there
owned by Walker, and put them in'n
bunk; deceased then prepared dinner,
and we all dined together; just beforo
finishing our meal, Walker jumped
up and took his rifle hurriedly, saying
ho was going to shoot a crow outside;
he came iu shortly and said ho had
just thon found ont what wo had come
up there for; we asked him what, and
he replied that we had just como up
to clean him out; he said no had got
to go back with him to New Weatmin
ater at oncu; we ngrued to do so, and
got up; I had got hold of uur blankets
and deceased was standing at my left
side, between me and Walker; heard
Walker Bay to deceased "I will do for
you right now," and when I turned
round ho was pointing the rifle at de-
co-istd; deceased put his hnnd ou tho
muzzle of the gun and pushed it
downwards and to one sido, and Walker fired; I felt tho bullet strike my
foot, and deceased full down; I jumped
past him just as he wus falling, grabbed the ride which Walker still held,
and Walker and I struggled some time
fur possession of it; I finully got it
away from him and threw it out at the
door; Walker immediately seized a
butcher knife which was lying on the
table and came at rue; he caught hold
of my right arm with his left hand
and raised the knife to strike mo, saying, "Now, you son of a , I have
got you;" I caught hold of the knife
with my left hand, and in the
struggle wo both fell, upsetting tho
table; in that position we struggled for a Considerable timu; got
on our feet again, when I pushed
him backwards and he fell heavily with
me on top of him; docensed then spoke
and put his hand towards us; Walker
let go my wrist and I got a piece of
wood and struck him on the hoad a
number of blows; he begged for mercy,
and I told him if he would lie still and
givo up the knife I wouldn't hurt him
any more; he gave up the knife then,
and I went to bind my handkerchief
round deceased's leg, which I found had
been badly wounded by tho ritlo shut
fired by Walker; deceased said ho waa
bleeding todoath; I had just begun to
bind the wound when Walker raisod
himself up; thinking ho was looking
for some other weapon, I told him to
lio down again; he did not, and 1
struck him again wiih tho piece of
cordwood and knocked him down; before T got through binding the leg,
Walker got up again, nnd 1 knocked
him down; having finished binding the
leg of deceased, I tied Walker's legs
with a piece of baling rope; took
blankets and guns down tu the bout
and then curried deceased down and
laid him iu the boat; before leaving I
took Walkor'a rifle and* shot gun and
threw them ns far as I cuuld nut oil
the prairie, which was thnn covered
with water; Blurted with deceased in
the boat f»r Port Moody; about 3 miles
down the inlet I went toa liimber cabin
and got two meu to vo with mo; up to
this timu deceased had complained
very much that hia leg pained; about
a mile from tho cabin we got a bolter
boat in which we made deceased inure
comfortable, and ho seemed easier;
after going aumu disiauce down the
inlet,deceased complained of pain in his
chest, and said he oouldu't lie down,
and I sat behind him, partly bidding
him up; frum that timu he seemed Iti
grow gradually weaker, and appeared
to bo sinking; I think thai just boforo
wo reached tho muiith uf the North
Arm ho died; it was then some lime
after dnrk; when we arrived at Scott's
Hotel, Port Moody, I feel satisfied he
was dead; Dr. Mclnues, of New NVsi-
ininater, arrived later and un oxnmln
ing niy left foot prom ttt need ilie littlo

that I know of; on Tuesday night
Walker lay down on his blankets, and
about i o'clock he wpku uio up and
asked mo if wo were going to let him
die; I nsked him what wns the mutter,
and he said he was very sick and would
like something hot; I asked what was
the matter, and ho said it wus small
pox; told him I thought it was only a
rash: he said he did not know, luit
would decide when he gut up to the
cabin; I then got up and made him a
cup uf tea and chopped some wood to
keep the firo going til! morning; I did
not ridicule him, nor were thero any
angry words; I made light of it, aud
ho did nut appear to be offended; I
left Walker in the cabin lied, but do
not know whether he wns conscious or
not.
Jno. 0 Duo aud F. H. Dyer, the
two men who assisted Smith in taking
deceased to Port Moody, gave evidence
of what they snw.i said dooeaaod bled 11
great dual, and they thought bodied
abuut an hour beforo iirmina at Port
Moody; lm was very weak and did not
couver.su.
Dr, Mclnnes testified that he madi
an examination of deceased; found a
wound ou the leg such as a bullet
would make; after striking the bono it
divided in two parts; the largo Iduod
vessel had been severed iu such a way
thut deceased would bu sure to bleed
to death unless hu had skilful attention; he had no doubt tliu wound had
caused death.
Tho jury returned thu following
verdict: "Wo find that Daniel J. Robson came tu his death at the head of
tho North Arm of Burrard Inlet, on
the 13th inst., hy a gun-shot wound
inflicted by tho hands of John D.
Walker."
On Wednesday night Constable
Shannon aud four others started in a
boat to find Walker. It blew so
fiercely that they were not ablo to
go up tho North Arm in a small boat,
but went down to Granville and got a
small steamer. The steamer camo
back tr. Port Moody yesterday morning with the body .of Walker. He
was found dead in the cabin as Smith
had left him. He was quito stiff, and
was lying in a pool of blood. Thu
two guns wero found on thu prairie
where thoy had been thrown by Mr.
Smith, Thc body now lies at Port
Moody, and wo believe Coroner J. C.
Hughes will proceed to hold an inquest
upon it at 11 a.m. to-day.
The remains of D. J. Robson were
interred in tho Oddfellows' cemetery
at this ctty yesterday aftornoon, and
wero followed tothe grave by a very
large number of citizens ns well ns
many persons from the surrounding
settlements. Walker, his murderer,
will probably bo buried in a day or
two, and tho last act in this terrible
tratredy will be ended.
The deceased, Daniel J. Robson,
was about 47 years of ago. He was
burn near Cork, Ireland, and camo tu
Canada with his family when abuut 7
or 8 yenrs of age, locating at Kings-
tun, Ont. In 18(12 the deceased came
to this province, uud for three seasons
he mined in Cariboo, In 1808 ho
formed a partnership with Mr, Smith,
the unly survivor of tho late tragedy,
and thnt partnership existed until the
end. Robson & Smith engaged extensively in farming on tho North
Arm of the Fraser, wliere thoy mado
considerable money. About two years
ago they sold out their farm property,
and have since engaged in various enterprises, ouo of which was taking up
a claim in tho Granite Creek gold
mines which they intended L work
noxt season. Tho deceased has 110
relatives in this country, but in Kingston and Montreal several members of
his family are still living. He was in
almost evory respect a most exemplary
mun, and enjoyed the confidence and
esteem of those who knew him as
very few mon do,
Mnple Rhlgc Elections.
(Correspondence of tlio Columbian.)
The electors of Maple Kigo mot in
the town hall on Thursday, the day
appointed by statute, for the election
of reeve and councillors. All the
political aspirants of the municipality
were this year in tho field, and, consequently, the supposed result of Thursday's vote was for tho last few weeks
the subject of much speculation.
Eighty-seven votes wore polled, which
were divided among tho candidates aa
follows: For reeve: Geo, Howison, 53;
Josoph Stephens, 33. For councillors:
Hector Ferguson, 35; W. J. Harris,
31; Peter Baker, 30; John Lnity, 24;
Henry Dawson, 22; Wm. Isaac, 22;
Thomas Haney, 10; Thomas Levi,
15; John Fitzpatrick, 8. Tho
council for 1886 is, therefore,
composed of Goo. Howison, reove; and
Messrs. Ferguson, Harris, Baker,
Laity, and Dawson, councillors.
Messrs. Dawson and Isaac got thu
sumo number of votes, and tho returning officer decided in favor of Mr.
Dawson. Tho election throughout
was conducted with deenrnm and in a
manner creditable to the electors.
There were no exhibitions similar to
those which disgraced the municipal
election uf lust year.

The V. S. revenue cutter Oliver
Wulcott, from Port Townsend for
Alaska, called ut the outer wharf last
evening, and left again after diking
Oapt..Hicks as pilot. Mr. Beeoher,
collector of customs for thu Sound, is
ou board, and it is pretty well understood that the voyage north is undertaken, in advance of the Idaho, to
complete tho investigations which
brought tu light the smuggling operations uf the officials on the latter Bteamer recently. Th*.1 Oliver Wolcott
will touch ut all tho northern porta
before the Idaho can get thero to
spread the alarm and put suspected
parties on their guard, and very probably further revolutions of a -startling
character will be made. Mr. Hoecher
believes that tho consignment of opium
seized on iho last trip of tho Mali
only a small percentage of what haa
already been smuggled into tho U, S.
frum British Columbia, by tho circuitous route of Alaska. Liko thu underground railway connecting the slave
uud free states 111 slavery days, a mysterious channel of communication between Victoria und Portland, or Victoria and Han Francisco, is known to
exist, via Wrungel, Juneau nnd Sitka,
The trips from thence aro believed to
bu monthly, like the Idaho, or semi*
occasionally, like tho returning voyages of coasting vessels. By these
avenues of communication enormous
quantities uf tho soporific drug arc believed to have been taken into Oregon
and California, to the great financial
gain of the parties engaged in tho illegal trade. Half a dozen foitunes are
known to have been made by "suspects/'and no Other method of accumulating so much weuth in sucha brief

It is beyond all doubt that "Myrtle
Navy" is the favorite tobacco with the
smokers of Canada. They obtain more
enjoyment from it than from any other
tobacco made and those of them who
have usod it long enough to tost its
merits never abandon it for any other
brand. The reason for this preference
is that the "Myrtle Navy" is made of
the very finest leaf which is grown ami
that in every process of its manufacture
the most vigilant caro is exorcised to
preserve thc genuine aroma of the leaf.

KWS FROM All PARTS OF THE WORU.
Ottawa, Jam 4.—It is alleged that
Lieut-Governor Dewdney intends using
al. his influence at the coming session of
parliament to have tho clauses of the
North-west Territories Act, prohibiting
the sale of liquors, repealed, and a
license system substituted, by means of
which the North-west government may
raise revenue. Mr. Dewdney has also,
it is said, made arrangements for starting a brewery at Itegina in thc event of
tho prohibitory enactments being repealed. It is understood that during
his recent visit to Ottawa, the lieutenant-governor offered to resign his -position
of Indian commissioner, luit Sir John
Macdonald declined to accept such resignation.

Svkacusk, N.y., Jan. 10.—The ice
gorge in Oswego river becomes firmer
and larger every hour, as immense quantities of ice arc constantly coming clown

than two feet sinco last night and is
rising several inches an hour. The
damage already dono cannot be estimated. Fully seventy-five families have
buen driven from their homes and others
arc constantly moving out. Thc families
are poor and as fast as they are rescued
ure turned over to the poor authorities.
AH teams available are being used to
remove flour and other goods from the
mills aud manufactories. Grain in the
mills is wot. Should the water recede
mills and factories will be filled with ice,
and as mnny of them had large contracts on hand the damage will be great,
Hundreds of people are thrown out of
employment. Professor Boynton of

removing the gorge. He visited tho
place and Bays it cannot be done and
fears that the worst is to come. The

THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN GO.
Speaking of tlie great oentral exliibi-
liition opened ut Toronto on tlie lOtli
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
hy very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
tho most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This is a Bcparate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Main liuilding. This pavilion must be
about f>0 feet by 4(1 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all in broud letters that
it is the pavilion uf that ciiiiipnuy, and
that Joseph Ruse, of (IH Kim* utreet
West, represents the company. Inside
no pains imve been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit tbe Ex-
hibition without going through this pavilion, there ho will find a little paradise
of music, Hero are decorations, hnnd*
some pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Jtuse, and above all, pianos uud orgaus
of the most art it-tic and unique designs.
The display of those instruments is grand
indeed, ami a splendid tribute to thc
genius and skill of oiir Canadian manufacturers, Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design arc found horo
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal boss organ, with hnndsome
pipe top, faceB the visitor at the extreme
end us lie enters this pavilion. For company are organs of evory style and design to suit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Orautl
National Exhibition held thore tiie Company had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive und will amply repay
a personal inspection nnd visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized tho high compliment lie paid
thc Dominion Organ ami I'iano Company
at the opening of the Loudon Fair. In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impe
tiiB Exhibitions gavo to eveiv industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at thc Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an Illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ aud Piano Company
there. He said that this Company (tite
Dominion Organ and I'iano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest tho judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, Franco, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill.and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared furthor that the
instruments of this compnny wore superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. with such a compliment
from such n source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, tiie Company
ought to feel content.

THE INTER OUKAN,
X 89 Madison St., Clile.igo, . The €. P. R. Traffic Manager.
Mr. Oeo. E. Olde, the new Geporal
Traffic Mannaer of the Canadian Puci
tic Railway, nrrived in Toronto by the
Southern Division train of the Grand
Trunk ut half-past four on Saturday
afternoon and registered at the Queen's
Hotel. Mr. Olds in conversation with
a reporter for the Globe says ho could
not say what shape tho organization of
the traffic department under him would
take, as he was not acquainted with
the staff. "Ho had taken u stroll
through some of the streets of Toronto
as soon as he nrrived, and was delight-
od with the improvements which had
tuken placo since he stopped here 30
years ago on his way from England to
take a position on tho Great Western
Railway. Ho had remained on the
Groat Western staff fur some threo
years, and then became connected
with tho Buffalo and Lake Huron Railway, of which road ho became general
freight agent. He had afterwards entered tho service of iho Cliicat'o, Burlington and Quincy road, and after
being thirteen years in the employ of
that road, occupying important positions, he hud accepted a post on the
Chicago, Milwaukee nnd St. Paul Railway. It was whilo in the servico of
this latter road thut he becamo intimately acquainted wtth Mr. Van
Horne, and he hud left it to become
general traffic manager of the Missouri
Pacific Railway, a position he had just
relinquished to accept a similar onu on
the Canadian Paoific. Mr. Olds hus
i tho reputation of being uno of the best
traffic men in America, and his ap*
' pcaranco gives credit to his reputation.

Chicago's Electric Blaze,
Tho  highest  and   moat   powerful
■ group of electric lightB iu the world is
! to-night, says the Chicago Despatch,
j blazing around tho tower of the Board
:of Trade building, at the foot of La
: Salle street, a little over 300 feet above
; the ground, While the building waa
; in process of construction tho idea of
'crowning its highest point with a ring
■ of lights was suggested by Elmer A,
1 Sperry, a Cornell University man, 25
I years old, who came here from Oorfc-
| land, N. Y., threo years ago aud form-
1 ed an electric light rooter and car
1 brake company. Virions circumstnn-
' cos prevented   the execution of the
scheme until the present timo. Mr.
Sperry's company puts up the lights,
the Board of Trade furnishes the
power, and tho other expenses are paid
by subscriptions from owners of surrounding property, including tho
Federal Gov't uud several railway
companies. There are 20 of the lights
and thoy are fastened to a ring of 4*
inch gtispipe, 29 feet in diameter. The
ring hangs on steel wires three-quarters
of an inch in diameter, running over
sheaves placed nt the extremities of
four arms projecting from the tower
near the top. By these ropes, which
are attached to drums in the clock
room, the lights are lowered, when
necessary, to a balcony surrounding
tho tower at tho dial, *JS feet below.
The lights aro of 2,000-candlo power
ench, and ure connected with a 20-
light dynamo of 2!) amperes iu the
basement. The carbons will burn 15
hours if necessary, Tho lights aro to
bum every night in the year. Tonight tho glowing crown is visible
from every part of the city nnd tor
miles away. It is reported that it can
bo seen at Michigan City, 00 miles distant across the lake. It is thought
that the light can bo seen from a point
in tlio lake off Milwaukee. The railroad yards of the city nre greatly benefitted by the light.
i llrltlsh Affairs.
( London, Jan. 11.—The interest of
■ tho English public in homo rule has
, shown a marked decline during the
I past week. The papers, especially the
j Times, continue to publish many let
I tors on the subject, but the leaders of
both parties maintain complete silence.
I Tho public perceive that nothing is
i likely to be said or done before the
I meeting of parliament,
. AU  recent  attempts  to draw out
Gladstone have failed.    He reserves
' himself   for  the meeting of  Liberal
' leaders, summoned for Monduy, and
1 to be followed by a meeting of the
1 wholo  party  on  Wednesday.     The
1 first meeting will endeavor to agree on
| tactics for tho opening of tho session.
• Gladstone will make a statement to the
. second meeting, intended to secure tho
co-operation of the whole party in the
1  programme, which is not intended to
]  discUiBe a definite Irish policy.
(>      Among the many rumors the most
pmbablo is that Gladstone will adopt
• the Fabian policy—move no amend.
, inuut to the address, abstain from all
.   attempts   to defeat  the government,
and endeavor to force both Lord Salisbury and Parnell to show thoir hands.
• A negative policy is in fact the only
policy on which tho once united Lib*
j   unil party is now able to ngree.
j      The   Conservatives, after   a   sharp
■ conflict in the cabinet, have resolved
lo  oppose every demand for au Irish
j parliament.     Lord Randolph  Ohur-
, chill stood out for a fresh alliance with
■ tho Parnellites, but obtained slight
'. support. He was obliged to admit
. that it wai impossible to unite the
! Tories in -support of home rule, but it
. is understood he hoped to detach
| enough  Radicals to construct a Tory*
Radical - PatneHite coalition  with  n
working  majority.      Ho   abandoned
;   this plan when he found a majority of
]   his colleagues ready to resign rather
thnn submit,
j' Tho government adheres to its in*
( tcntitm tn propose a large measure of
- local government, coucuding to Ireland
in principle every privilege grantod to
J England and Scotland. Parnell will
jj decline this offer, and renew his appeal
G to Gladstone, who will reply that only
] tho ministers in power can propose a
f   substantive   scheme.       A   week   ngo
■ Gladstone touk a different view, and
intended  to   lend   nn   attack on the
J  government, on tho ground that tho
* Liberals would otherwise be obliged
<■   either to oppose or support Parnell'a
j  umondiiient, but tho indications to-duy
are thut GladHtone will stick to gener-
alines; will pronounce Lord Salisbury's
1   scheme inadequate, but will refrain
from proposing an alternative  "Keep
the Tories in offico for the prosont,'
iB still the general Liberal feeling.
The ministry will neither challenge
nor evade a vote of confidence. They
will announce their measures, nnd

"Dun fioiie."
I reckon he's dun bin called fur,
sah," said the old man r.s ho came
around to the grocery.
"Somebody dying?" nsked a man
who was passing.
"YeB, Bah."
"Who is UT
"Jupiter, sah —my dog Jupiter.
Mebbe ye wouldn't mind gwine aroun'
dar wid mo? It's lonely liko to be wid
anybody dyin'."
The old man's voice proved that he
was deeply moved, and tho pedestrian
went with him. Around the corner
nnd half a block up tho street they
turned into a yard, and there lay tho
old dog on the grass, eyes hnlf closed
and breathing heavily.
"He's moas' gono—moas' gone!"
whispered the old man as ho knelt on
the ground and softly smoothed the
body.
'What's the matter?"
Ole aige, sah—uuffin but ole aige,
He's bin givin out dis lust y'ar, but I
didn't reckon  it would como quito so
i."
How long have you had him /"
Dat's—tint's what makes it hurt me
so! I rized him up since de time lie
wasn't bigger'n my list. It's gwine on
twenty y'ars since dis dog stepped foot
in my cabin. Jupiter, docs ye hear
ole marse talkin1 to ye? Docs yo know
Izo right yere beside ye?"
"Twenty years is a long time," said
the pedestrian.
Yes, along, long time," whispered
the old mail. "An' dis 'ere Jupiter
has mixed in with all my joys an' sorrows—all my good luck an' bad. He's
seen de timo whon he had plenty, an'
he's seen de time when we had neither
food nor fiah. Jupiter open yer eyes
once, an' look at me. Izo right yere!
I wouldn't leavo yo fur all de gold in
de hull world!"
How does your wifo take it '?" asked the visitor.
"Deed, sail, but—but—I"
The old man broke down at that,
tears raining down his cheeks aud his
throat filling up, and it was a long
iuute before he resumed:
"She's doad! Died five y'ars ngo!
Jupiter an' me waa all alone in de
house wid her when she closed her
eyes. I sot dar a-holdin1 of her hands
an' singin':
She's gwine up to heben in a chariot-
She's gwine to jine de band;
De hells am a-ringin' fur to call her,
She's a-gwine to dat bcttet land.
"An1 dis Jupiter sut dar an' knowed
dat she was dyin' jist ns well as I did,
and he mourned and mourned, aud
couldn't be comforted, It war days
beftV he would eat a mouful, un' many
a night as wc sot in de darkness, a step
on de sidewalk soundiu' like old Sue's
would mnke him spring up nn' bark fur
joy. Ho'b been jist liko relnshuns to
me since dat."
"It's too bad!"
"Y-yea. I'd gin all I have in do
world to keep him alive a y'nr longer.
Jupiter, it's me—old marse! Doan' ye
h'av me talkin' to ye?"
"Have you always lived here?'1 naked tho man, striving to divert the
other's attention.
"No, sah, an' dat's nnother reason
why I can't keep do tears bnck. Do
you know dat I mar'd Sue down iu
Georgie iu de old slave days ? Jist befo'
de wa' sho was sold away from me uu:
I nehber 'spected to sou her no mo'.
Arter de wa' I hb'd in Richmond, an'
ouo dny somebody tolo mo dat my Sue
was in Detroit. I didn't wait to turn
money—I didn't wait to writ to her,
but dat Bame night I sot out afoot,
Jupiter wid me. It was weeks air
weeks afo' wo got yere. We went
hungry an' thirsty. Wo lay down at
night all tired out, an' wo got yere at
last an' found iny Suo. Such rejoicin'
an1 cryin' an' prayin'! An' Jupiter
seemed to understan' all about it, kase
I'd tole him do hull story ober nn' ober
ag'in as we tramped 'long de high
ways."
"He is dead," whispered the man.
' 'Am he gone ? Fo' do Lawd! ho am 1
Jupiterl Jupiter!"
"I will help you bury him if you
will get a spade."
"Thanks," answered the old man
when he could choke duwn his feelings. "No hand but mine muat bury
dat ole dog. He's got ter be laid iu
tenderly. Izc got to lay him in de
grave an' mourn ober him by myself.
Ira obleeged to you—you may go,"
And as the man passed out of the
gate "Ole Murse" knelt besido the
body again nnd sobbed out:
"Dun gone awny from mo, an' de
ole mnn am left to watch iu de dark
ness alone."—Detroit Free Press.
The Smallest Doff.
Nearly two hundred different kinds
of dogs! Think of it! And yot this
is not diflicult to believe; for we have
water dogB, and watch dogs, and sheep
dogs, nnd fighting dogs, and pet dugs.
and sledge dogs; and carriage duga
thick dogs and slender dogs, long-
legged and short legged dogs; dogs for
killing rats, nnd dogs for killing wild
boars; dogs for use, and dogs for ornament; dogs to care fur ub, and dugs
for us to care for.
Then thero is the little dog—the toy
dog, ns it is called. The smallest to
whicli a dog can be roduccd is remarkable; aud if the size of the very smallest dog had not been officially recorded, uo une could bo blamed for doubt-
ing the facts concerning the little fellow.
"Tiny," a black-and-tan terrier, has
the honor of having been the smallest
full-grown dog that ovor lived. He
belonged to Lieutenant-General Sir
Archibuld Maclaino of England, and
in honor of his extreme tiniuess is
now carefully preserved under a glass
case.
Tiny was Icsb than four inches long,
and could comfortably curl up and
take a nap in a common glass tumbler.
An ordinary finger-ring was large
enough for his collar; and when he
bat up, a baby's hand would almost
have made a broad and safe resting
place for him.
Of courso Tiny wns of no account
ngainst a rat. Indeed, a hearty, self-
respecting mouse would have stood its
ground ngainst tho littlo fellow. Uut
if Tiny had not strength, lie did lmvo
courage, and would bark as lustily as
his little lungs would lot him ut the
biggest rat that over lived—when tho
rut was dead.
To tell the whole truth, Tiny was re-
inarknblu nud ho was famous, but hu
was not very happy. Ho could have
hnd almost anything ho wished to cut,
but ho had no appetite, Ho shivered
lunst of tho time, oven though ho was
usually hidden in warm wraps. Of
course ho caught cold easily, nnd then,
oh, doarl how pitifully he did sneeze!
