Sundny Legislation.
Tlie following letter from the
pen of Rev. Donald Fraser, of Victoria, appears in the Times: "Tbe
disoussion the other day on Mr.
Bole's Sunday bill was certainly a
remarkable one — remarkable for
the low view of the subject taken
by most of the speakers, and at the
same time for. the variety whieh
characterized the tone and substance
of tho remarks—a variety ranging
from the course, violent bluster of
Messrs, Allen and Duck, to the)
mild platitudes of Ool. Baker and
Mr. Grant. Mr. Allen's remarks
wore unansweiable in their way,
and requiro no comment. Mr.
Duck's statements wero remarkable
chiefly for their venom. Ho wandered far from the subjeot in hand
to lind hard things to say against
Christianity, and especially against
the Christian Sabbath. How can
we account for this deadly hatred]
Tlio only explanation that I can
think of is, "Every one" that doeth
ill hntetli the light." Mr. Duck is,
I bolieve, a Spiritualist. Spiritualism is a meeting of extremes; a
compound of infidelity and superstition; a strange mixture of unbelief which rejects what is reasonable and elevating, in spite of the
clearest evidence, and swallows the
grossest and most useless and do
grading absurdities on the strength
of evidence which no sane man
would accept. The venom in Mr.
Duck's remarks is worthy only of a
deluded fanatic. He poses as the
champion of freedom and insinuates that Christianty is a perse-
outing power. He should remember, however, that all the persecutions that have arisen within Christendom have taken plaoe in direct
opposition to the command of
Christ, and are traceable to corruptions of Christianty, not to
Christianity itself. The great persecuting powers of the world are
infidelity and superstition, Pagan
Rome, in defense of aneient superstitions, shed blood like water.
Infidel France, a century ago,
boasted of liberty, equality, fraternity, hut inaugurated a reign of
terror, whose leading feature was
the guillotine. In this enlightened
nineteenth century, who are the
people that use dynamite and daggers to propagato their peculiar
views? Nihilists, communists and
infidels, Mr. Duck hates persecution with his whole soul; but
when the Metlakahatla Indiana
were being persecuted and hounded
out of the province, the most
cruelly unjust and malignant words
that were spoken against them
came from the lips of Simeon Duck.
Sabbath laws are simply tho very
reverse of tyrannical; they are
simply intended to conserve to men
the liberties to which they are entitled under the Divine law. Messrs,
Higgins and Davie opposed the hill
on the ground that existing legislation was sufficient, and further
legislation unnecessary. Were the
honorable gentlemen aware that
the penalties attached to the statutes nominally in forco in this
provinco nre, with one exception,
only ono shilling! I would respectfully ask them if, when they were
making their speeches, they knew
that the present law was a farccf
Either they did or they did not.
If thoy did not, they are certainly
very line legislators; if they did,
they are guilty of something very
like disingenuousness. On which
horn of the dilemma do the honorable gentlemen prefer to be impaled) Perhaps they will take one
apiece. Ool. Baker believes in the
continental Sunday,—half Sabbath,
half holiday—and quotes with approval the views of the Rev. Charles
Kingsley. God has over and over
ugnin onjoyed the sanctifiontion of
the Sabbath; that is, tho consecration of the whole day to his own
service, except so much ns is to be
taken up in the works of necessity
and mercy. God has declared tho
whole day sacrod. What right hns
Clinilcs Kingsloy or James Bnkcr,
or any other mortal, to cay that
only half of it is saoredl It is sheer
presumption for any one to say
that while the morning shall be devoted to worship the afternoon may
bo given to worldly amusement. I
trust I shall bu pardoned if I say
plainly that I have no faith in the
theologian or tho legislator who
presumes iu this way to tamper
with the Divine law. What military man would dare, in a similar
way, to mutilate tho orders of his
superior officer! Tho benevolent
riiHiiilnrr for Cassiar displays a very
lender solicitude for the comforts
of Jews nntl Adveutisls, but I am
still unable to seo how Mr, Bole's
bill will increase the disabilities or
inconveniences of these worthy
peojrle. Would Mr. Grant, for in-
limnrim
Children Cryfor PitcheHsCastorla
stance, be kind enough to point out
what hardships it would be to Jews
and Adventists, if tho grogshops
wore olosed on Sunday! But did it
ever occur to the honorablo gentlemen that in those countries where
the Sabbath is most religiously observed the Jews enjoy an amount of
liberty and prosperity which they
enjoy nowhere else, whereas in
countries where the Sabbath is kept
according to Ool. Bakers idea, they
are even to this day shamefully persecuted. The supporters of this bill
deserve the thanks of the Christian
people of the province, and I would
remind opponents, that they have
not yet heard the last of it.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
A BAD STATE 01* AFFAIRS.
Pauis, April 23.—Everything is
quiet in Paris to-night, but it is an enforced peace. A largo force of polico
and military is in readiness to quell
any disturbance that may arise, and it
is only the presence of this power that
prevent! a renewal of tho battle between the students and the Boulanger-
ists. Premier Floquet has signified
his determination to suppress every attempt at disorder at all hazards, and
upon his sucoess in doing so dopends
to a large extent the successful issue of
the policy he initiated in the departments. The streets in the Latin quarter are swarming with students, who
openly threaten to resume hostilities
ut the first opportunity. They are
quite as bitter m their condemnation
of the police as they are in denouncing
the Boulangerists, in whose interests,
more than that of law and order, thoy
declare the police are working.
IN  DOUBTFUL CONDITION.
Berlin, April 23.—The emperor's
physicians declare that apart from the
fact that his majesty experiences considerable difficulty in breathing, the
published acoounts of his condition are
greatly exaggerated. He has no local
pain whstcvor. Sunday was one of
the best days in all respects that he
hss paused for a long time, but absolute rest is still imperative. The doctors admit, however, that it is impossible for them to predict that the improvement in the patient's condition
will continue beyond a few hours.
THE CANADIAN LACKOSSE CLUB.
London, April 23.—Tho Toronto
lacrosse team played the last move in
the southern match on Saturday at
Richmond against a selected London
district team. The Princess Mary and
the Duke of Teck, Sir Rawson Raw-
son and other distinguished spectators
were present, and there was a large
and enthusiastic crowd. Sohofield
scored 3 goals, Eckhardt nnd Henry
Dixon 2 each. The spirited game of
tho Londoners showed good form, but
the Torontos scored 9 goals lo 2, This
makes their eighth victory. Each
member of the teams was presented to
the princess, who made a neat little
speech, welcoming the Canadians and
expressing pleasure at their great suo-'
cess, also noting the Torontos' excellent runuintr and their passing and
throwing powers. The party, including the Duke and Duchess, were pho-
graphed. Lusty cheers for the Duke
and Duchess closed the proceedings,
Tho team goes to Manchester, thenoe
to Glasgow and Belfast, sailing for New
York in the Circassian on May 4th.
THE l'.rsll TO CANADA.
London, April 23.—The great rush
of omierants to Canada prior to tbe
cessation of assisted passages, it haa
hasbpon found nccessnry In supplement tho week's regular service by additional steamers. The Allans are
sending threo steamers to Ihe St. Lawrence, tho Dominion Company two,
and the Beaver Company one, nil carrying a full complement, in nil some
4500 passengers. The demand for passages iB so great that many had to wait
till next week.
THE STRICKEN KAISElt.
London, April 23.—All of tho European press bureaux have kept open today in expectations of receiving bulletins showing the condition of tho Em-
purer Froderiok. This sort of thing
is central/ to custom and almost without precedent, but the demand for in-
fnriniitinn concerning the stricken Kin-
sor is so persistant throughout England
nud tho continent that the nowspapers
are now prepared to issue extra editions at any moment. The bulletins received to-day indicate au unexpected
improvement in tho emperor's condition generally, but this .ib said to be
merely a phase of his disease which denotes the presence of pytomia and gives
the physicians no hope. It transpires
that the doctors expeotcd a fatal termination of tho crisis yesterday afternoon nnd upon thoir advice the Grown
Princo, tho Dowascr Empress Augusta
and other members of the imperial
family were hastily summoned to tho
castle, while the high court functionaries wero instructed to remain at their
posts indefinitely. Prince Bismarck

SALMON PACKERS ALARMED,
San Francisco, April 24.—The salmon packers of this city are becoming
apprehensive regarding the outlook for
the season's salmon catch, Then ii
no especial reason for uneasiness, yet
the fish are undoubtedly very late. No
cannery boats are out, and there an
but few outside boats. The psiw eaid
by canneries for fish is over 26 per
cent, higher than laat year, 90 cents
and one dollar being paid iu 1887,

fish, big and little. How tbe run will
prove cannot be definitely told until
the middle of May, by which time the

results may be looked for during June

pack haa been placed, and England,

Tua-Mlay Kvemiu. April ill, ISSS,
Last month tho new steamship
Oity of New York was launched ou
the Clyde. This is one of the largest and most magnificent passenger
steamers ever constructed. She is
no less than 660 feet in length, 03}
in breadth, and 43{ feet in depth.
Jt is calculated that this great vessel will be able to hold her own', in
point of speed, with any of the fast
steamers now plying across the Atlantic, and she possesses many advantages which others havo not.
Her great dimensions will enable
her to pass through ordinary storms
with comparative steadiness, and
she is provided with a most complete system of water-tight compartments which add materially to the
safety of her passengers in case of
accident. She has also two sets of
triple expansion engines, so completely independent that if one should
become disabled tho vessel could
proceed at a three-fourth rate of
speed. Everything about this magnificent vessel is in keeping with her
grand proportions, advantage having
been taken of every modflrn device
to secure speed, safety, convenience,
and comfort. The length of the
Great Eastern is 692 feet, so that
the City of New York' comes abort
of that marine monster by only 132
feet. The new vessel belongs to the
Inmnn A International Steamship
Co., and will run between Liverpool
and Now York.
In his Inst issue our Church-st. co-
temporary has an item under the
somowhnt startling heading: " The
Defeat of the Government." When
we first road these words it occurred
to us that our cotemporary's thumb
must have beon lifted at last, nnd
the immortal 14 who long ago pledged themselves to vote the government out of office had really fulfilled
their promise. But the item does
not go nearly as far as its head.
While the land act was under discussion Mr. Boie moved the addition of two clauses, whicli were
carried, although they encountered
opposition from some members of
the government. That is all. Upon
the strength of this circumstance tbe
organ tries to construct a house of
straw upon which lie may fall if his
famous declaration of February
should prove as empty and groundless as a thousand similar declarations have proved during tho past
four years. Our cotemporary intimates that although the government
has been "defeated," no one need
suppose that it will resign! But
in February wo were assured that it
would be forced to go out, aud that
the votes of the 14 were the piecise
means by which this would be accomplished ! The item of Saturday,
however, closes with these comforting words: "The usefulness of the
government is gone, and they will
be forced to step down and out." It
is generally, supposed that prorogation will take place this week—per-
hnpsonThursdayorFriday. Tho days
for defeating the government are,
therefore, passing swiftly away, and
there has yet been no party vote
taken in which any government supporter manifested an inclination to
cross the floor of the house. If our
cotemporary does not hustle about
this week, it is to be feared his 14
prediction will go into the same
grave that has covered its numerous

In the San Francisoo Call of last
Thursday we notice an article under
the heading, "They Throw up the
Sponge," in which tho paper felicitates itself upon the arrival in San
Franoisco of the steamer Parthia,
one of the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way's Ohina line. The Odll assumes;
or pretends to believe, that the
Parthia went to San Francisco, nnd
that the other steamers of this line
will make it their tcnninul point,
because it has been found thnt otherwise the line will not pity. It asserts
that the Canadian trade with Ohina
and Japan is hot at all sufficient to
keep up such a line, and it is not
possible for the Canadian steamers
to compete successfully nt Vancouver with steamers which make San
Francisco tlieir eastern terminus.
Evidently bur bay city cotemporary
is extremely anxious to make the
largest amount of capita! possible
out of a circumstance whose significance is very different from that
whioh he tries to make it. It is a
fact that the China steamers of the
O.P.E. line have not been wanting
in freights, thequantity offering having in aome instances been more
than the capacity of the steamers.
So encouraging are the prospects of
the line, which was at first put on
as an experiment, that two new
steamers art now being secured to
increase ito efficiency. With these
steamers it will be possible to make
fortnightly trips, and to extend these
trips as far as San Francisco. But
this does not in any sense mean that
the Chino, trade now going over thu
Canadian railway is to be neglected.
On the contrary, the increase in the
number of steamers and the number
of trips means more trade for the
railway and better opportunities for
Canada to carry on a successful business with Ohina and Japan. If the
line did not promise to pay, it would
be abandoned; but it does promise to
pay, and: proposes to extend its operation to the oity of our ootemporary, where it will make things lively torMm Francureoline., Honce
thewtaiif.

Flitting here n*n i t here during the performance, with eyon aud ems lor every-

(•jailor indicating to a g ntleuinu beside
|iiin some one in (he chorus.
. It was Anna C'niolla, whoso lieauty
lind attracted his eye, whose rich y.oice
Iris car had caught above au I through
Vll the others.

Is tho manager, plu tsoil and couipiacelit,
Ivns i]iiietly standing hack in.one of the

Ind turned sharply to see Anna Carorla's

I haraeter, at his side.
[ "Hush I" sho said very low nud quiet-

"You do that I"
"Yes, here is the boy; send him, nn 1

i '1 he niauagor blindly obeyed the stroii'i
vill ami steady purpose of tho master
Jittli'l, us people iu emergency gouerVi'iy
i.o, whatever their relative posi.ioiu r.r

Anna Uarolln passed on to the siago,
Ind advancing at onco to tho footlights,
\'ood for one moment her tall command-
g form and beautiful head drawn erect,
Iiillincliinsly facing the crowd, meeting
nil oven the astonished gaze of the Km-
|iror himself, and tho wondering look ol
ler lover in the orchestra below her,
I Then she said, in a voice uot loud, bnt
tear as a bell, with cool, steady author-
Ly in every measured accent:
l "1 am here by the manager's ordors.
i,is Imporial Majesty has been robbed
f-night of a rare diamond, and the thief
I in this house, livery one," nnd the
Ireaker's dark eyes swept tho audience
Iom gallery to pit, "is at onco to with-
Kaw quietly, and in order; any one at-
|tnptiug to remain will be immediately
Treated. The band will also retire at
jce."
lEven as she spoke her ear, painfully
■rung ior the sound, could hear the
linn hum of flames from the back, but
I imoved she stopped back, swept a deep
pesiance to the audience and Jimperor,
id tbe curtain fell.
J The Emperor instantly left his box,
Simpering to the gentleman to whom he
luil before pointed out Anna Carolla:
T "There is something behind all this.
I ant not robbed,   Send Colonel llerg-
liann round to summon tho manager to

lames, and hurried wildly, spreading
lie alarm, But the terrible cry ol fire
nine to late to do mischief, and once out-
Ido, the police and soldiery, under the
[ool directions of trio Knipcror himself,
lept order. And though the flames
•ounted at first, Anna's timely discovery
[nd energetic measures taken forced the
lie under. In less than an hour and a

great brown eyes.

Toor child, sho hnd yot to learn that
the world was uot so fair, or friends so
true as shehad pictured,
Two months helore Charley 1 orin*—
a thorough man of the world- hal Bought
the littlo village for quiet and rest, lies-
sio liraliam, with her pretty fare mil
graceful ways, had boen set ns n p arl
among tho villagers, and Charley Luring
—man-like—could not resist the te ..illation of stretching out his hand, and securing the jewel, not caring that it wus
but to ainusa him for nn ho ir.        *
Bessie felt ns if all t dugs h.ul come to
an cud, and tho wori I, whicli but yestor-
day looked so bright and inviting, was
now closedjabout with Egyptian dark-
"A letter from Aunt Hester," said her
father, coming in ono evening, j tist after
tho first snows of Winter bad begun to
fall; "and she wants you to como und
spend the Winter with her. She says
sire is lonely, for Ben is bo occupied with
his studies. Would you liko to go, littlo
girl V"
'!Oh, fathor, so very much!"
A week latter Bessio was at Aunt
Hester's, whero Ben's teasing and the
won l.'i-s of city life almost crowded tho
old sorrow out of her thoughts.
I think Aunt Hester und Ben knew
nil, for thoy never let her have an hour
.alone. Jen became loss devoted to his
law studies, anil frequently brought a
number of his friendB in to spend the
Ion,' winter evenings. Ono of them,
h iiber Wuyhind, a rising young lawyer,
and a great, handsome fellow, became
more attentive then the rest, nnd by and
bv called alone, and Bessie was given
over to his special charge at concert,
opor.i, party, etc.
Poor Bessie! She had said no one
could ever touch her heart again, but
this strong, honest man, with his great
soul shining out of his clear gray eyes,
had won from her a love far deeper than
she had over given Charley l.oring.
At a reception ono evening Bessie
hoard her name pronounced in a voico
quito familiar.. Turning about sho stood
lace to faco with Charley l.oring. She
bowed coldly nnd passed on. They met
often alter that, and uno evening ho
called, under pretense of seeing Bon.
I'tssio was tho only one at homo, oxcept
the servants, and she had to receive
him.
Ho surprised her before be had been
in tho parlor long by saying:
"I lovo you, Bessie."
Shu looked at him proudly, defi mtly.
"How daro you talk to me in such a
manner—you, with a lawful wlfo V"
"My wife is dead," he replied, "and I
have learned in the last fow weeks that
1 really love you—havo loved you ever
since 1'bade you good-by .at your home."
"ml I hnve learned ainco then the
fahchood of your vows and learned the
val.io ol the love ol one true, honest
man. I am tho betrothed ol Wllbor
Wnylnnd. Go, remembering thst a

wife, who, he said, wns an inmate of
the establishment. He was informed
that the woman he sought was in her
room upstairs. There ho bent his
steps and asked for admission, whicli
was refused. ' After a short parley aud
not being able to induce tlio woman to
let him in, Butler smashed the panels
of the door and effected an entrance
into the room.. The police were summoned in haste and arrested Butler,
who said all that he wanted wns his
wife to go with him and leave the
place. The prisoner was immediately
taken before Mr. Atkinson, who, on
hearing the evidence, lined Butler iu
all $15, part of which was for repairing
the smashed door. The woman denied
boing Butler's wife, but admitted they
had lived together in Victoria for Homo
timo.

RBPOHTS,
The board of health reported ngainst

Iish houso under the wharf at the foot
of Mary st. < Adopted.
Tho committee appointed to confer
with the Venerable Archdeacon Woods
in regard to the exchange of cily lots
for a piece of land necessary to
straighten the street in renr of Holy
Trinity Church, reported tbat thoy did
not think the city could legally make
tho exchange.
Coun. Herring thought groat discourtesy had beeu shown tho archdeacon in regard to the reverend gentleman's communication, to which no attention had beeu shown, He thought
tlie proper way would have been to
have held a conference wltli the archdeacon as he had requested.
Coun. Shiles said he hnd dono what
ho considered best under the circumstances, but he was perfectly agreeable
to n conference with tho archdeacon.
Tho only way tho transfer could be
made waa to buy tho proporty from.tho
church and in return tho archdoacon
could buy lots of equal valuo from the
city.
Coun. Elliott said no such exchange
of property could be legally mnde hy
the city, and, therefore, the proposition was impossible.
On motion of Coun. Calbick the mutter was referred back to tho committee
to confer with the archdeacon and ascertain the price placed upon the land
in question. Tho piece of land offered
for sale by Dr. Fagan fur the purpose
of straightening the street was also referred to the same committoo to report on.
The board of works nBked for further time tu report on the extension to
Webstor's wharf.   Granted.
Tho assessment by-law wns reconsidered and finally passed.
Von. Archdeacon Woods' communication in reference to placing a lamp
at the rear of Trinity church was referred to tho lamp committeo with

ecting tho dog (ax.
Coun. Shiles said ho hoped the
counoil did not expect the police committee to tako the warpath after dogs,
He thought it would be -infra dig* for
auch an august body to descend to that
sort of work. He thought notices
should be sont out saying that nil dogs
found without tagB after a certain date
would be prosecuted according to law.
The clerk was instructed tu gut pos-
