Noal Dow lias the courage ond
persistent qualities of a true reformer. He permits no one to go
unchallenged who assails prohibition
in Maine. In the Muoh Forum he
makes an uiiaiuwerablo case against
some of tbe later assaults that have
been made upon it, paying speoial
attention to the flippant criticism of
Dr. Bacon in, a former number of
that monthly. It is quite true'that
certain able men, mostly Christian
ministers, ihould open tlieir eyea to
the fact that their opposition tottro-.
hibition ig not defensible. Tktj
-}U-a__i«e agaistt-fccta—a new-lass
of,facta that have their ground in
the progress of Christianity.—Chris
tian Guardian.
Mr. J. W, Xohgley, of Halifax,
a member of the Nova Scotia gov*
ernment, in a letter to an-American
journal on commercial union, says:
"Recognizing that the trade of the
United States ia yearly becoming
more valuable and important tq
Canada than the trade of Great
Britain, the ordinary American oannot understand why Canada should
not at once bow down before her
great neighbor and make terms, But
the man Who eliminates sentiment
as a faotor in making his calculations in regard to communities of
men is sure to reach erroneous results. Sensible Canadian, realise
plainly enough that unrestricted
trade with the United States would
be of immense value, and they are
anxious to secure ft But let it not
be forgotten that Canada is a part
of the British empire, and the Canadian people are loyal to British interests, not in a sense of toadyism,
but in a just sense of mutual obligation. Great Britain has always
dealt fairly with .Canada, and the
people of Canada, if they be worthy
of the raoe from which they sprang,
will deal squarely with Great Britain. It is quite possible, at no distant date, a point may ho reaohed
when tbe interests of Canad_*____
the interests _f the empire will begin to separato and the two countries will pursue their career along
divergent paths; bat tho feelings of
motu-i regard and attachment, it is
to be hoped, will never be extinguished."
Ihe subsidies to the provinces, as
•very one knows, have undergone
great increase. The intention of
the authors ol the confederation
compact wu to make the subsidies
a fixed amount, which would not be
liable to increue. In 1867-8, they
amounted to 12,753,966.46; last
year they reaohed 14,182,625.01.
This great increase is chiefly owing
to a departure froin the original
compact, by which the provinces
gained, and' tbo country as a whole
lost Then are only the direct payments. The indirect payments, in
Uie shape of local railway grants
alone, last year, amounted to t-,-
701,249.00, Practically, thon railway grants are additions to the subsidies; and considered in this light,
the subsidies have more than kept
paoe with the taxes. Besides, the
federal government hu assumed a
large amount of debt which the
provinces undertook to bear. Decidedly the provinces have got the
better of the federal government;
and there is no end of their demands
for moro money. It wu the first
false step that oost; if the original
terms of the compact had Men
striotly adhered to, when the first
demand for a departure wu made,
all would have nno well; as it is,
things ara very tit from being as
they should be, The steady increase of the publio debt is a matter of grave eonoeni. That it
should, at first inersase futer than
population and resources, wu inevitable that it cannot continue to
increase in the future u it hu in
the past twenty years. There were
gnat public works to construct, in
order to give a possibility of unity
to a country of vut extent. The
result hu been that the net debt
hu increased from (75,728,641.37
to 1239,159,107.09. —. Monetary

Special to the Colombian,
Nanaimo, May 7, 7 a.m.—An ex*
ploiing party want down tlie main
engine plana last night as far as No. 3
North Level, where 25 whitemen wen
supposed to have been at work, i They
found a lot of heavy timber knocked but
and some small ooal- and oiawiad over
them. Owing to the after-damn the
lamps would not light.   Tiiey retuni-
Suid crawled." through a hole ina
ping in the air course. The fint
j found wu that of Andrew Muir,
foreman, and just behind him 29 white
men and 12 Chinese, lying sll within
5 and 10 yards of each outer. Muir
had evidently been guiding the way
out, tho men following his lead. They
had tried to get into the slope, but
finding it caved in retraced their steps
to the air coune. Just as they had
come into the slope of the air course
the after-damn struck them and all
succumbed. The Davey brothen were
found kneeling dawn with arms around
each other, and had pulled their coats
orer their heads to shield themselves.
There were no signs of burning, they
simply had been killed by the afterdamp. The fire had not gone into the
afterdamp. All evidently died soon
after the explosion; '■ As soon as the
bodies had been found they sent for a
relief parly, who bore the bodies to
the shaft and wrapped them in canvass
and sent them up in the cage. Two
others, Woobahk, lather and son, wen
a few yard behind the othen and could
not be got at. They oould be seen six
or eight feet around the corner, but the
wall of after-damp wu between. The
men rushed in, however, and secured
them. Lights would not live in the
damp. Archibald Muir wu not found.
He was an old man and probably could
not get along as quickly u the othen.
At 1 a.m. all came up completely fatigued and worn out. Robt Scott,
foreman of the Wellington mines, in
charge of another exploring party, then
went down.   Ho got into No. 1 and
tnetmted nearly mto the stall and
|i|_d. _jrb bodies on the way. Thoa,
akellni and Thoa. Loyne suffered
badly from the damp. They had to
be brought to the surface and resuscitated by Dr. Walkem. Subsequently
the two bodiea of Andrew Hunter and
Joaepli Forrest' were found. They
had" worked in j No. 1 Level.
Nearly all the men look u if they
went gently to aleap. The fint man
found was probably half a mile from
tbe main shaft Further exploration
is now proceeding. Arrangements for
the dud an now perfect. Alter oomlng up from the shsft they an cased
in canvas, ticketed, laid on a bier coveted with white cotton, and brought
np the niled-in roadway to the carpenter shop, They are than taken
out another door to the blacksmith's
shop, placed in wagons, and taken to
the school house. Here all an niosly
washed, neatly dressed,' placed in
handsome coffins, and oonteyed to
home or society rooms. Tho names
of tha victims baso already appeared
in tha Col. miian. Forty-five widows
and 117 children are left destitute.
About 111 bodies have been reccverad.
There are atill 00 in the mine.

Wasaikotos, May 0.- Infonnstion
hu been received hen of veiy important legislation recently adopted by
the Congress of Ohili, th. most important to the commercial interests of
the world that bu been passed for
many yean, u it aacaree the oonalruc*
tion of two lines of railway across tha
continent from the Atlantic In lhe
Pacific. The effeot upon'the develop*
ment of the southern half of Soulh
America will be similar to that tif the
construction uf ths tranioaotlnetrtu!
railroads in the United 8tet«s, and
will cause a radical change in the
commercial situation in the Argentine
Republic and on tho west coast uf
South America. Ons road t_ bsbuilt
is lo fill the gsp ia tbe road now built
by the Argentine Republic to Men-
doss, 160 miles from Santiago, ia
Ohili. It is expected the road will be
completed within « year. At thc
ume time, the congress uf Ohili
granted another and similsr ooneeasion
for a rosd parallel to Ihe above and
about 300 miles to the south of it, ex
tending from the port of Bathia
Blanoa, in the Arwnline Repeal!.,
through the psu of Antuoo, in the
Andes mountain, l" Talcahuna and
Concapcion, on the Paoifio cout of
Ohili. The Argentine Republic has
alraady granledaconcession for the
road fnm Bshia Blanca to the boundary of Ohili,and*considerable part
of it hu been in operation for some
time. Buenos Ayns and Bahio

Some daya ago it wu suggested
in these columns that the money
usually spent in celebrating the anniversary of the queen's birthday
should this ynr be saved for the
bereaved families of the victims of
tho Nanaimo disaster. In the Colo-
niit ol yesterday we notice that a
correspondent nukes a similar suggestion to the people of Victoria,
Ihe calamity that hu overtaken
the cily acrou the straits is so terrible, and the consequences of it
must be so far reaching, that it
malls for the employment of every
available source of relief. It was
expeoted that more than common
grandeur would mark the national
festivities this year because it is the
queen's jubilee, and in this would
be involved more than the ordinary
expenditure; but surely the people of
tbis oity will not be content to burn
powder and pay money for horseraces while their neighbors are suffering from immediate want with no
prospect before them to minister to
their hopes. So mora fit monument to the queen could be erected
than a liberal gift to her loyal subjects, who are suffering the consequence of a terrible calamity; and
we are sura no act of ours would
be regarded with more unqualified
satisfaction by our gracious queen.
_onrtful Depravity.
A bill' passed the legislature of
Michigan lately imposing restraint
upon boys between the ages of 7
and 16. Thia bill forbids these
yonng sprouts who have a regular
place of employment or are attending sohool from frequenting any
publiio houn or place of amusement
without the knowledge and consent
of thoir parents. The tendency of
custom in the United States has
long been to give great liberty to
tiie rising generation. Young America hu too often come to the conclusion that he is just as good u his
parents and just as much entitled
to independence and freedom of
action, and the result. is seen in a
want of respect for parental authority, and loose habits of life. The
training of children is one of the
gravwt and most diffioult problems
of the age. In passing through our
streets it is a common thing to see
young boys with cigars or cigarettes
in their mouths, imitating the doubtful example ut by thoughtless parents, or by others whom they retard as worthy ol imitation. | Theae
boys imagine they are practising a
manly art, whereu they ara but administering rank poison to their
physicaland mental faculties. Whatever . nay be said for the um of tobacco by persons who have reached
the age of manhood, it is theuni
venal verdict of medical authorities
that it is a most pernicious poison
to the young. In some countries
the*-laws provide a penalty for tobacco users nnder the ages of twenty,
because tha habit saps the foundation of the mental, moral and physical powers, and produoes a race of
imbeciles. We are inclined to think
that some kind of restrictive legislation will have to bo undertaken to
• check thi* growing evil It is from
unrestrained youth that the criminal
claim are usually made up. The
hoy who contracts habits of disobedience and indulgence is laying the
foundation for a lifo of crime and
shame, and there an many in this
very city who are hastening forward
in this very road.
8vffi-ut_.e,
It is to bo hoped the trial of William Shearer, who murdered James
Murne in cold blood yesterday
morning, will take place at the present assin court. The crime wu of
a moat brutal kind, and the punishment of the criminal should be swift
•nd exemplary. Snch fiends should
not bs suffered to live beyond the
requirements of law and decency.
Tban oan scsrcely be any good
ground for delay in this case. The
murder, waa committed in broad daylight, in full view of several witnesses, and the muderer made no
attetaft to eeoape otto conceal his
horrible crime.
Ito have eonsidered
Indeed, he seems
the aot a proper
foot or tho circumstances. . What
aver pta* night be set up in justification or excuse could oertainly have
no laflueoce npon tlie vordict It is
very possible that Shearer had suf
fend from the conduct ot hia vie
tin; bnt at the time of the tragedy
than^je/trnt provocation, and noth-
iaf Uil W takon place previously
ootid ha pleaded in justification.
W. IB* no reason, therefore, why
tin law should not at once come into OBsW-hn in Tindioation of itself,
lfe tftMUU are right hers, and

almost sure to be tragic. Men aro
never born murderers, and seldom
reach that condition without a long
course of) previous education. Every
step in the down grade.makes tho
succeeding step less difficult, and
absolute safety lies only in refusing,
to take the firat step. The harvest
men are going to reap is just the
legitimate fruit of what they are
sowing from day to day.

A Debebved Thib.te.—-We are
sure every person who has had the
privilege of an acquaintance with Rev,
Coverdalo Watson during his residence
in this city will appreciate and endorse
the sentiment expressed in the resolution passed yesterday by tbe quarterly
board, a copy of whioh wc publish
elsewhere. Mr. Watson has maintained the dignity of his office on all
occasions, and has won the esteem
and affection of all who have been
brought into close contact with him.
Hii|doparture from the province is a
matter of very sincere regret to all
hia friends.

Beiiish Garrisons.—The largest
British garrison at any station outside
of the United Kingdom is at Malta,
and consists st present of 6890 officers
and men. Gibraltar comes noxt with
5160. But Gibraltar is a much smaller
place than Malta, and soldiers there
are about as thick as sailors on a man-
of-war. The total number of British
troops in Egypt is only 6000. InCopo
Colony and Natal' there are 3265 officers and men; 1715 at Hongkong;
1367 in the Straits settlements; and
1456 at Halifax, N.S. As a rule tlie
coloniea do not pay anything toward
the^ cost of the troops provided for
their defense. There are exceptions,
however. Hongkong pays a subsidy
of £22,000, CepEm £37,000, and Malta
£5,000. Mauritius, whose garrison
only numbers 536, pays £15,000 out of
the £50,000 which the garrison costs
annually.

An ExoraiENT Entxbtainmrnt.—
There wu a large audience present at
the concert in the Drill Shed last
night, quite a number being unable to
obtain seals. The entertainment was
unquestionably one of the best erer
given in the oity, as it embraced more
lirst-class musical talent than has ever
before been brought together on one
plstform. A programme on which
such names u Mrs. Middlebrook,Mrs.
MoOrady, Miss Campbell and Mr. W.
H. Keary appear as soloiita will alwaya be worth hearing. It waa. Mra.
Middlebrook's first appearance in
Weetmintter, and we are sure the expectations of the sudience, who had
heard a good deal about her, were
fully realised. She is undoubtedly
the best singer that has yet appeared
on any platform in the province. Hor
voice ia clear aa a Hutu, well trained,
and of great compass, and her singing
is without affectation or effort. Besides singing two solos and an encore,
she took part in a duet with Miss Hill
(which waa beautifully given), a trio,
end a quartette..'. Mrs. MoOrady sang
a solo, which was loudly encored, and
she responded in such a way as to win
still more applause. She has a very
powerful voice, well cultivated, and
unusually, full and rich on the low
notes. Miss Campbell, whu has bo-
come quite a favorite during her brief
residence here, fully sustained her
reputation, and gracefully responded
to a very enthusiastic oncore. Mrs,
A. J. Hill, who has an unusually rich
contralto, gave a snlo and took
part in a duet with Mra. Major.
Mr. W. H. Keary sang "Consider the
Lilies," and in response to a detent i .ed
encore rave a comio song in which a
number of local celebrities were made
to appear. Mr. Keary always sings
well, and never fails to carry an audience. Tho other numbers were a
quartette by Mn. Robson, Mn. Watson, Mr. DeBeck, and Mr. Pearson;
a trio by Mn. Middlebrook, Mr. De-
Beck and Mr. Pearson; a quartette by
Mrs. Middlebrook, Mrs. Major, Mr,
DeBeck, and Mr. Pearson; a piano
solo by Miss Clute; piano duet by Mrs.
Beecher and Miss Major; piano duet
by Miss Rand and Miss DeBeck; and
recitations by Rev. C. Watson and Mr.
Coathor.i. Altogether the programme
wu an excellent one. The stage was
fitted up with very great taste, and
presented the appearance uf a drawing
room.

Methodist   District Meeting.
Tho deliberations of tliis organization woro concluded yosterday, and
the meeting adjourned,.to reassemble
with the district boards for Viotoria
and Port Simpsou at thc firat Methodist conference for British Columbia,
whioh opens at Victoria on Wednesday next. At the close of the morning
session the following resolution, moved
by Rer, Joseph Hall, seconded by
Rev. O. Bryant, and supported by expressions of hearty approval by all
present, was unanimously carried:
"Resolved, that whereas by the aotion of the constituted authorities of
our church, our beloved chairman, the
Rov* Coverdalo Watson, is about lo
bo removed from our distriot and
province, therefore we, the ministers
and laymen of the New Westminster
district, in district meoting assembled,
avail ourselves of this opportunity of
expressing the extremo regret whioh
is occasioned us by his departure from
amonust us. It is a matter of unfeigned thankfulness that we have had
the privilege of being associated with
him in the work of our ohurch in this
prorince for the past six years; that
during these yean the utmost harmony has prevailed; that in him we
have a brother profcundlyappreoiative
of the genius and mission of Methodism, and of unquestionable loyalty to
lior doctrines and methods, and whose
joy it is to serve at her altars. Coming amongst us at a peculiar juncture
in the history of B. O. Methodism, his
administration of its interests has
heen characterized by eminent success.
We realise our indebtedness, to his
wise oounsels and not less to the happy
influenco of his brotherly and devout
spirit. Every field in the wide sweep
of his suporintendency has felt the influence of his judicious supervision.
We beg to assure our dear brother of
our deep interest in the future happiness of himself and his family, and of
our earnest wishes for his most enlarged success In whatever sphere his
future ministry may bo exercised; and
we pray that he may long be spared to
serve our beloved Methodism in the
exercise of the eminent rifts with
which God has endowed him,'1
Disease Cathers Strength as it. advances. Annihilate its birth. When
the bowels become sluggish, digestion
feeble or tho liver torpid, thoy should be
aroused and stimulated with North*
rop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure, a medicine foremost
in usefulness among alteratives. It
should noi; be abandoned if on immediate
cure in vot effected, but be use as It deserves, systematically and with penis*
tcaoe. lt wilt then provo that it is
thorough.

The fisheries department will send
another exploratory expedition to-the
northern waters of British Columbia
this year with tho objeot of completing
the work begun last summer. It is expected to demonstrate the enormous
tiisheries wealth of the province. The
black cod are superior food fish, about
which little hu heretofore been known,
and abound from Cape Flattery to the
Arctic Ocean, but especially in the
northern waten, where the famous
banks were discovered last year.
Henry Clement, Almonte, writes: "For
a loag time I was troubled with ohronio
rheumatism, at times wholly disabled:
I tried anything and everything recommended, but failed to get any benefit,
until a gentleman who was cured of rheumatism by Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil,
told ine about it. I began using It internally and externally, and befon two
bottles were used 1 was radically cured.
We find it household medicine, and for
oroup, burns, outs and bruises, it has no

Why go limping and whining about
your corns, when a 25 cent bottle of
Holloway'a Corn Cure will remove them?
Olve It a trial, and you will not regret It.

The confederation Lire.
The annual roport of this solidly prosperous Canadian inatitut'onwIU be found
in soother column. The foots revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thouksto the resolute
manner in which -the Company has de*
clined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, thc working ernenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small retio of be*
tween 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of tbe fivanocs of
the Company Is the f. Ct tbat the interest
income is H-To'ent to pay the death
olaims—whieh in a comprny ol the age of
the Confederation Life i, something to be
p o.id of. The ess'.-ts and liabilities are
sot forth ln minute detail- and the tables
show tha'j, after making al'owance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is i' surplus of 1282,199
over li.ibi'ij'es and. capital combined.
The Increase in the assets in the last year
was $260,390. So muoh for what cau be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined ss the true policy of
the Company, viz:—'-To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, nn*
wise, or extravagant expenditure for tho
soke merely of increasing new business."

White Bbohzu. Mohuments. -Wliite
Bronse is a comparatively new substance,
and bos come into large use, rapidly, for
speoial pm poses in this oountry. It has
heen found to bo eo well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for aome.time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, It'has been found that
tbe material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it ia stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinom,
and auperior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws oT a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined sine, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surlace, but does not ad*
here to Vs. A thin film of oxide whioh
forms on this bronze Is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film Is so thin as to be im*
measurable. No corrosion,' It is affirmed,
can take place.—Boston Journal of Commerce. Chas. J, Robson, New Westmiaster, is agent for the White Bronze

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1867.
THE AIM OK "OHH»» Is to set forth, In
In an Impartial und Independent manner, the pussl-iff eyeiitN of Canadian political and i-ocml life. Ils Cartoons speak
more definitely nnd moro pleasingly than
who'o columns of editorial. In tills pungent, easily appreciable, nntl artistic style
of present fnil a subject, (he whole situation Is rovenled ut a glance. The success
of Grip shows How well this fact Is appro*
olated-IlM Cartoons on tho passing political events of the country (wing even
more eagerly sought, idler than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though tho latter Is equal to lhat of nny
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grin mto making »
tensive Improvements for 1888. Tna old
cover Is to be discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
papor.-overy number being so artistically
executed as to cqmpnm favorably wltn
the best papers on the continent. The
advts. wilt be compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar lm
provemonts will be made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn tbe title page; while the cartooni
will certainly not suffer from ox tensive
Improvements In the artlstlo department.
The price of Grip wilt hemufbr-twIBft
yenr, which Is tower than that of any
pnper of Its kind In America,—most of
thom soiling for $6, single numbers of
fVr.i-will be 10 cents.
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful speoial number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features Introduced,
particulars of which will ho given In preceding Issues, Theno numb.rs will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge, -'    ■ .
