PROVINCIALLEfilSLATURE.
Thursday, Mnroh 10.
Mr. Orr moved his resolution of
wont oi confidence in the provincial,
secretury, the text of which we
published a few days ago. The
mover claimed that the provincial
secretary had been guilty of using
improper influences in his canvass,
and that his election waB, therefore, illegal, and he had no authority to assume the functions of chief
commissioner of lauds and works.
Mr. Ladner seconded the resolution
and said he would not weary the
house by recounting tho means resorted to by the provincial secretary
to secure his election. Hon, Mr.
Robson spoke at considerable length
to the resolution. He said that if
the only considerations involved in
the resolution were the persons who
had moved and seconded it he would
treat it with silent contempt, But
his duty to the house and to the
country called for en explanation.
Jf questions relating to his election
hud occupied more of the attention
of the house than they deserved, it
was the fault of his colleagues,
Messrs. Orr and Ladner, who seemed
to think their sole mission was to
villify, misrepresent and persecute
him. He then proceeded to explain
the events which transpired during
the canvass. He maintained that
the very same course was pursued
as on previous occasions witli the
exception that last year he carefully
refrained from making any promises
of grants until after the election.
He called publie meetings of the
settlers, discussed the wants of the
settlers publicly, and, in company
with the road superintendent and
surveyor he endeavored as well as
ho could to ascertain wliere the
appropriations could be best spent
so as to do the greatest good to the
greatest number. He was. sure a
large majority of the voters in New
Westminster district were satisfied
with the arrangement, nnd would
not thank their representatives,
Messrs, Orr and Leaner, for this
motion, as it certainly was not in
tlio interest of the constituency.
He pointed out the cause of Mr.
Orr's bitter opposition to himself,
whioh arose from personal considerations and not from questions affecting the publio good, Mr, Bole said
he thought the question was of sufficient importance to deserve further
investigation. The charge of bribery
and undue influencehad been brought
ngainst the provincial secretary by
his two colleagues. Mr. Orr had
affirmed that the provincial secretary declared over and over again to
the elector! that $100,000 of the
dry-dock money was still in the
treasury. The provincial secretary
had distinctly told the people .of
Now Westminster that they could
not expect government favors if
they did not return government supporters, He accusod the provincial
secretary of "barefaced, wilful, corrupt falsehood." He (the provincial secretary) denied that he had
made any promises to the electors,
but ho found from the public ao
counts that 91,000 had been paid
out by his direction without authority from the chief commissioner of
lands and works. Mr. Bolo proceeded at length to assail the pro
vinoial secretary, and concluded by
saying that the opposition could not
keep the majority from doing wrong,
but if the majority were determined
to do dirty work for the government
the opposition would see that thoy
had plenty of it to do. Hon. Mr.
Davie protested against such exhibitions of personal bitterness as had
been witnessed by the house. He
thought the charges made against
the provincial secretary were unjustifiable and unworthy of the
member who made them. The provinoial secretary, as one of the representatives of the district and one of
the lieutenant-governor's advisers,
was perfectly competent to confer
with the settlers of his district with
respect to thc improvements desired.
Ho quoted tho opinion of Judge
Ritchie that there was no impropriety in a minister making promises
while Becking election, so long as
they were not mado to those only
who support him. Mr. Grant maintained that the provinoial secretary
had violated tho law. His statement and that of Hon. Mr. Duck
respecting the $100,000 balance of
dry-dock refund were directly op
posed to each other. The province
not only hnd not (100,000 dry dock
money in the treasury, but it was
indebted for a large amount to the
Bank of British Oolumbia. Mr,
Theo. Davie said if the provinoial
secretary had not had a single friend
in the house before the commencement of this discussion, the tirade
of untruthful abuse to whioh he had
been subjected should have enlisted
•f
as his advocate every right thinking
man. The charges were hot supported by a shadow of ovideneo, and
those who made (hem had evidently
no faith in their.lwn resolution. If
they had been true, any voter in the
district could hive extracted $500
from him by proving a case of bribery against him In the courts. The
only charge against the provincial
secretary was that he had caused
needed publie works to be undertaken in the district of which he
was a representative, and it was
against this the other two represen
tatives were protesting! After
speeches from several other members
the motion was put and lost, the
opposition members alone voting
for it.

ii  (ill*  t'i fails rf-ritish Columbinn
. The Columbian thinks that it
prateet* its consistency by advertising hotels and suppressing any
reference to the liquor told in them,
tbm. ig Ait ingeuious method of sat-
iafjring our cotemporary's scruples
aarsgarde the bar department con-
nWMT with hotels, but it ia a hotel
' all 'th* "ne, and the publie smile
at the compromise whioh the Columbian make* with principle and prac-
♦ioe. n Nor might it be out of place
to uk whether it was the hotel
keeper who withdraw his advertisement out of consideration for our
cotemporary's consistency, or was it
idii-woT—Ka-teo-Mi-r Herald. Our
Vancouver ootemporary professes to
entertain a Very poor opinion of
persons who are guilty of unfairness.
If his opinion is really sincere he
■ost himself have iunk a good deal
ih hii own estimation bf late. In apre-
vious issue he flatly intimated that
tht Columbian was permitting its
columns to be used for the purpose
of increasing the evils of the liquor
trafflo by ln*erting liquor advertisements, while professing anxiety for
its total suppression. We denied
this absolutely, and drew the attention of our cotemporary to the fact
that all liquor advertisements were
excluded from our columns. Instead
of honestly acknowledging its mis-
take, the Herald gins the reply
! quoted above. If he is not able to
perceive the difference between advertising a hotel and advertising
liquor, we cannot be held responsible for hit lack of discrimination.
Hotels are most neeesssry and useful establishments, but the sale of
liquor as a common beverage is
neither, being altogether unnecessary and pernicious. The Columbia* advertises the one without
scruple because it is neopssary and
harmless, and it refuses to advertise tha other from a conviction that
it i* a positive and gigantic evil
whieh could be stamped out without
injury to the moral or material interest of the people. In reply to our
ootemporary. last sentence we may
ny that liquor advertisements have
been refuted for the reasons given.
Wt hid no intention of making
thia bet publio, and would not have
mentioned it if we had not been
forced to do so by our cotemporary
in Hh* defence. Perhaps our cotera-
ponry will now furnish some proof
of the sincerity of bis own profes-
led desire to advance the temperance reform!
rarty Politics-
On Saturday a letter appeared in
thia journal from the pen of W. J.
W. suggesting the formation of a
Conservative association for this
district In that letter the writer
points out what seems to him sufficient rejaaons for the formation of
auoh an organisation, and points
out some of the things whioh ought
to engage its attention. From these
we conclude that the purpose of the
I prapoaal is to introduce party politics with all the objectionable features that have disgusted so many
thoughtful penoni in the east, and
driven many ot the best men out of
tht political field altogether. Tbu
being tht object, we an not in favor
of tht proposals submitted by our
correspondent. It is a matter of
congratulation that British Columbia haa hitherto been very much
fret from Dominion party politics,
and, hence, the unseemly mud-
throwing whioh always disgraces
political oonteata in thc east is fortunately of nre occurrence. Among
eaaisrn Conservatives, "grit" is the
tans used to express one's contempt
ol a political opponent when all
other words fail: among Reformers,
tht word "tory" conveys an equally
forcible  and   uncomplimentary
. thought, These factions seem unx-
itM not io muoh to put forward
trgunwnti in support of their polities! creeds aa to misrepresent their
opponent, and blacken their reputation. Then are dozens of persons
nowa residing in thii district who
.hava taken part in political contests
-. in tht thit,-and who, having ob-
Mrvtd th* comparative absence of
partyis*) in thii country, would re-
riit with all their influence any
movement looking to a return to
tht faction fights of days gone by.
Bnt in thit., oountry the formation
ofli Oonnrvetive auociation would
Wt «cly probably lead to undesirable remits in the direction men-
tiohed, but it would bt most unfair

Liberal or Conservative organization.
Liberals are probably few in number compared with the Conservatives, and would not feel disposed to
organize a Liberal association. Under theso circumstances there would
bo no person to watch the Conservative agents, and the lists might bo
simply destroyed ns a correct exhibit
of the eligible voters. There arc
other grounds upon which objection
to the proposed party organization
might be made, but these we cannot

QRIPI
1887.
CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1687.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" Is to net forth, In
In an Impartial und Independent manner, the passim,' ('vq.iitri of (\imutliui political and social Hfo. ft--* Cartoons spialc
more definitely and more pl.-iisinirly than
whole columns of uditoritil. In this pungent, easily appreciable, nnd nrtlstle style
of present fin* u subject, the wholo situation Is revealed utn eliince. The success
of Grip shows how well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought' after than tho chaste
and humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
similar publication on the continent.
Tho publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive hnprovnment-s for 1880. The old
cover Is to bo discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pnges, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
papor-—every number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on the continent. Tho
advts. will ho compressed ond more systematically arranged; while similar lm
provements will be made ns to the letter*
—ess, A new and handsome design will
lorn tbe title page; while tin. Cartoom
..JU cortnlnly not suffer from extensive
Improvements In the artlstlo department,
The price of Grip will hereafter be 13 a
year, which Is lonrer than that of any
Saper or its kind In Amcrtca,-most of
lem selling for tfi. Single numben of
OWpwIllbelOcents.
Twice a yenr, at Midsummer nnd Christmas, a beautiful special number will be

The Lumber Trade.
Enormous Aniounl or American Capital

ada. 	
Monikbal, Mar. 4.—J. H. Pope,
minister of railroads, to-day drew attention to tho enormous amount of
onpital whioh is invested in the lumbering trade of Canada, and which
would receive atsWere blow if the bill
stopping alt- cimimercial intercourse
waa pnt into operation. This is ono
ot Iho ohief lumbering centres in whioh.
American oapital is largely employed'.
United States Consul Thomas W.
Hotohkiss, when asked whether he
had given the question any consideration, said: " I have placed the subject hefore the department of state at
Washington. A large number of Americans who hnve a pecuniary Interest
in Canada would be financially mined
were strict non-intercourse established. The amount uf wholly Amerioan oapital at stake would run into
the millions."

that no amuunt of goose criticism will

great glee in Boston.

In the Gorgeous cathedral;
MTWTIC SCENE CHEATED  IY A MOTHER.
Moaning Ike less er Rer tern.
A most affecting scene, suggesting
in itself an epitomized temperance lecture of the most eloquent character,
was witnessed by a dozen or more peraons in the Cathedral of tht Holy
Name, yesterday afternoon. It was
about 3:30 o'clock, and the prieata
were engaged in hearing confessions,
while long lines of devout penoni,
mostly women, were arranged nbout
thn confessionals, eaoh one WVting
her turn to enter the box. Suddenly
a delicate appearing young woman,
poorly dressed and somewhat lame,
came In the main doorway; and with
tears streaming from her eyea, lifted
the wraps from the face of a- little
child apparently about one year old,
which she carried in her arms. Aa
she did io ahe almost fell into one ef
tha rear pews, moaning, " Oh, mother
of Ood, my poor ohild ia gone at laat!
Great God help me." Then with a
suppressed moan, her dentate frame
trembling with the great agony she
wu suffering, ahe laid tht body of the
now freed little sufferer beside her on
the (eat and wept at if
Bn HBAAT W0OT.D BB1AK.
Then, at auddenly aa the oame in,'
after hurritdly making the sign of the
trots, the ttnderly raited her precious
burden and disappeared. Strong in
her faith, and. with an appreciation
of God's holy place, aht had brought
tht little sufferer to yield up ita spot-
less tonl at tht altar of itt Creator and
btfort the font where it waa baptized
at the beginning of ill earthly oarcor,
scarcely a year ago. While ahe was
tilting wllh hor dead In the cathedral,
her yuung husband and the father i.f
the ohild waa lying beastly drunk in a
Olark street aaluon, scarce three
blocks away. Slie had been to the saloon, and with the infant dying in her
armi triad to roust him to a sense oi
thtir ohild. The proprietor of tht
saloon, who had sold the man the
liquor, was a witness to thia apectacle,
but his thoughts, if he had any about
it, didn't oust him tu take any action
in the matter. About fifteen months
ago the young woman married tho nun
against the wishes of her parents, who
objected to hia fondness for liquor.
She nt first rejected his suit, but upon
hia representation tliat Ivy marrying
him the could save hiin sue relented
and married him. Sho soon found
oause to regret tho stop. In less than
fivo months aftor their marriage Bhe
attempted to bring him homo drunk
from the saloon in which ho was yesterday. Ho ataggered nnd fell upon
htr, fracturing her hips and laming
her for life.   He went
FBOM BAD TO WOMB
nnd ii now a wreck, spondiug wl.nt
mone; he inakea in the one retort.
The keeper of thit place worships in
the cathedral. Thit morning himself
and hit well-dressed wife and children
will aatemble before the brilliantly
11 jilted altar, and while the fragrant
oloudi of incense nre ascending he will
thank God that his business is good
nnd that he ia enabled to drop a liberal
offering in the contribution box. He
will; not think of hia wretohtd customer; he will not caro to pioture the
oold, wasted body of an innocent martyr tn whisky and poverty, with a pale,
half it-tried nnd maimed young mother
binding oyer it. What concern is all
thit tif hit! Isn't saloon koaping a
reputable business, nnd hain't no the
respect of hit fellow man I—Infer-

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to bo known as the
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited," The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlie object of
the new company Is to continue the pub*
llcatlon of the British Columiuan newspaper and carry on & general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual Interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There witl be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tho management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money,
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R,
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own namo and for his own benefit.
It is desirable thnt a dally newspaper
ihould be maintained In this oity, and
the new company asks for publio patronage on tho ground that It is engaged in
•n enterprise calculated to promote tho
publio welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on Its owu merits and
supported only so long aa Its policy ts
consistent with ite professions. In consequence of this business ohange all nc-
connts due tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted nnd
closed. Address all communications and

Robert Oarrot.of the B. & O., sent tlio
following despatch to John McKay:—
'•I tender you my sincere congratulations upon the completion of your telegraph lino between British Columbia
and Son Franoisco, thus establishing
the first competing lino between the
Atlantic aud Pacific Ocean since 1877.
The competition then was frail and
temporary; that which now exists I
believo to be secure and permanent."

The managers somo time ngo contracted for the engine but tho other party

Immigrant.-:. The Rov. Jehu Bridget, emigrant's chaplain, of St. Nicholas' church, Liverpool, will most likely
come through to Now Westminster
about Uie middle of next April, bringing with him some few people from the
old country. Mr. Bridget* wishes to
make it known that ho can get as
many domestic servants ns may be
needed for British Columbia. If any
persons are in want of either servants
or farm hands they can obtain all information as to passage money from
Rev, O. Ditcham, Sapperton. It will
be necessary that they state in application what wages thoy will pay, what
accommodation thoy have, and what
the services required. Anybody wish*
ing an interview with Mr. Bridger will
kindly send to Rev. G. Ditcham, so
that everything can bo arranged before
his arrival. If found uecessary, a servants'home will in time bo established
somewhere close to Kew Westminster.

COMMUNICATIONS.
Conservative Association.
Editor Columbian.—The suggestion of your correspondent W. J.W. in
your issue of the 12th inst., in reference to the expedience of organizing a
Liberal-Conservative association for
New Westminster, is "timely and
good." Under our, or indeed under
any, system of free representation,
government by a party must of necessity prevail, nud in the vigilance of
parties consists the best guarantee that
we possess for good government. In
order, however, to reap tho full benefit
of tho system, it is necessary thnt the
great parties, into whioh the citizens of
ovory free country are divided, should
be fully organized, in order to secure
the unanimous nomination of the best
candidates available, and also to enable
thom to utilize their strength, so as to
securo their election. The subject has
been receiving the consideration of
many hero of Tate, and will likely assume a practical shape ero long.

N. McRao, Wyebridge,. .writes: "I
have sold large quantities of J)r. Thomas'
Kclectric Oil; it is used for colds, sore

was empowered to have a bridge constructed from the north end of the
trunk road on Lulu island over the
dyke toward the river, and also a similar bridge at the south end of trunk
ruad, Soa Island. Moved by Coun.

Mrs, A. Nelson, Brantford, writes:
1 was a sufferer from Chronic Dyspepsia
for a eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sensation in the stomach, at times very distressing, caused a
drooping and languid fcehng, which
would last for sevoral hours after eating.
1 was recommended by Mr. Foppleweil,
Chemist, of our city, to try Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not beon better for years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling has all gone, and food does not Ho
heavy on my Btomach. Others of my
family have used it with best results.

The Confederation Life.
The nnnnal report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums whioh
the shareholders presont bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, tho working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 por cent. A point attesting the aoundness ol the finances of
the Company la the fact that the Interest
income is sufficient to pay tho death
claims- -which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
sot forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making al'owaace for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thero is a surplus of $282,190
over liabilities and capital combined,
The increase in the assets In the last year
was $200,300. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, vis:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronze ls a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large nse, rapidly, for
speoial purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Dos
Moines, Iowa, ond St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—-it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and ave
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not ad,
here to it, A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistruotible by
tho elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so tnin as to be im*
measurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.— Ronton Journal of Commerce. Chas, J. Robson, -Now Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze
