Speaking of the corruption of politics and the alleged
low tone of the news press, he said
as to the tint: "The unprincipled
people who are foisted into office by
such good Ohri.tian oithrte as you
and I are form the real danger,"
That is just so. Nobody gets into
office except by popular approval, or
at least with popular concurrence.
Foliticions are what the people allow them to be, neither better nor
worse than that. As a body they
ara neither so bad as they are often
described to be nor so good ns they
ought to be. That they are not better than they are is mainly due to
the political apathy of those who
who ory most loudly against the corruption of politics. When the worse
of two candidates is eleoted, and
naturally when elected appoints to
such places as are in his gift the
moat active of the worst citizens
who eleoted him, the very good oiti-
ten is estopped from complaint of
the corruption of politics, unless he
opposed the worse candidate at t'very
stage of the campaign.
InterJScean.
The Senate.
The theory of the builders of con-
toleration was that a nominated
senate would give the oountry the
services of a chamber of experienced
and independent, men. The elective principle had been tried in the
legislative counoil prior to 1867,
and before that experiment the nominative principle had prevailed. In
fact, we had tried a half and-half
chamber—that is to say, when the
elective principle was substituted
for the nominative, the nominated
members of the old body continued
to sit in the new. The politicians
who framed the British North
America Aot were therefore familiar with the working of three different systems, and the fact that
they returned to the nominative one
in preparing our new constitution is
an argument against the utility of
two elective chambers which certain senate reformers of the present
day would do well to consider.
George Brown's idea was that a
senate whose members were nomi
nated by the government of the
day would be a most efficient body.
In his confederation speech and
afterwards he laid great stress on
the circumstance that "the members
of the upper house were to be appointed from the best men of the
oountry," and that "not a single
appointment could he made with regard to which the government would
not be open to censure, and which
thn representatives of the people in
this house would not have an opportunity of condemning." Mr. Brown
wac a capital theorist. He once
argued himself into the belief that
confederation was the grandest work
in tbe world, unci that within twenty
years, i. e„ by the year of grace
1887, it would contain from twelve
to fifteen million people, united as
one, and happy and prosperous be.
yondany precedent since the fall of
man. Our experience of the senate differs widely from Mr. Brown's
forecast. The nomination system
hss undoubtedly given us a few
really good men. But, speaking in
the rough, it has created a chamber
of- mediocrities who, if not incapacitated by age, are incapacitated by
intense partisanship from rendering
the country useful service. The independent senator, who was tojep
resent the higher interests of the
Dominion, and; to examine publio
questions with a judicial mind, turns
out to be, a garrulous old person, appointed'"for party services of the
doubtful sort either in the commons
or- iii elecfidh' contests, who votes
blindly with the side that gave him
hjf seat, and who spends the rest of
his time in wondering how it is that
the people am Unable to dnteot in
him the high minded and mature
statesman of Mr. Brown's dream.
The- result is .the. senate lias long
since forfeited public respeot, The
few JMod ••rt'in it are ashamed of j
it,' arid Have tried, hut so far with <
out success, to find' something for
it to do that it could do well. It is
admitted by (everybody, even .by the
senators themselves, that an upper
ohauiinber so entirely useless cannot
last.,long. In young democracies
short shrift is given td institutions
that merely billhber the ground,—

—^_____, .111
In a letter dated the 21st January
the Ottawa correspondent of the Toronto Globe mentions a rumor currently prevailing to the effect thnt
Sir John Macdonald's mental vigor
hu >o far failed that he may bo considered ou the verge of mental imbecility. The statement has produced a profound sensation throughout .'the east, and is almost universally discredited. If there is no
foundation for such a rumor (which
is most probable) the Globe and its
correspondent deserve the severest
censure for giving curtency to such
a heartless story for the purpose,
apparently, of damaging the Conservative cause in the coming elections. Such a stratagem is unworthy of a political party or a news-
Sper that pretends to be honest.
, on the other hand, the rumor is
founded on fact, we feel sure the
governor-general would have seen
that the government of the Dominion did not remain in the bands of
a person whose mental equilibrium
was open to question.
,&■• :	
Gradually the true inwardness of
political party warfare is coming to
the surface, and for much of this
new 'light we are indebted to the
now independent Mail In a recent issue this paper says: "In the
■Speak Now' transaction Mr. Blake
has no doubt been misrepresented.
Ther* is not the slightest evidence
thai he had prearranged or purchased the resignation of Mr. E. B.
Wood." Now, the Mail and the
whole pack of Conservative journals have for years been insisting
that Mr. Blake hod made a corrupt
arrangement with Mr. Wood, and
that in the "speak now" note there
was abundant proof of that fact.
It is about the only thing they hare
ever been able to bring against the
Reform leader, and they ran it for
all it was worth. In the course of
time we shell probably have several
other confessions from the same
source, and by and by it may come
to be received as probable that the
party leaders whose characters have
been so fearfully blackened were not
much worse than the party organs
•fter sill '
Tbe Writs.
Sheriff Armstrong, who has been
appointed returning officer for this
district, received tbe writs from Ottawa yesterday, and has issued his
proclamation. Nominations will
take plaoe at the court house in this
oity on the 17th February, and in
the event ot a poll it will be held
on'rtrftlrof March. The time for
preparation is now, therefore, comparatively brief, and candidates and
electors will have to be making up
their minds what is the best thing
to do. It is stated tbat a considerable difference of opinion exists as
to whether persons who promised
their support to certain candidates,
when it was expected there would
be a by-election, are bound by these
pledges in - view of the election being a general one. There is a real
difference in the circumstances. Tho
byrelectipn would be to fill a vacancy
for only one year, whereas the general election gives the successful
candidate a seat in the house of
commons for five years. Whether
that difference is sufficient to absolve promises of support we are
notprepared to say. Persons whose
promises were made in consideration
of one set of circumstances could
not very well be held, as a rule,
when the circumstances have substantially changed; but an absolute
promise stands good under all circumstances. The only candidate
who so far has declared his views
with any detinitentiss is Mr. Codville,' but doubtless the others will
make an announcement now that
the. date of the election has been
positively fixed.
A Good Appointment.
In appointing Hon. Henry Holbrook as representative of this city
in Kngland the council did a very
wise thing last night Mr. Holbrook '• one of- the early pioneers
of" *A«1 -province, and he was always ft warm and consistent friend
of . New Westminster, where he
still holds a considerable amount of
property. He sat for some time in
tht- provinoial legislature, and occupied the no less honorable position
of. mayor of New Westminster, and
his intelligence nnd experience are
•ueh ti to enable him worthily'to
represent ns and successfully to
guard our interests at home. At a
tlmt whan British Columbia is at
traoting to much attention both in
•astern America and in Europe, it
it important that we should have
■en about the world's capital who
are perfectly familiar with our requirements and .resources, and who
tr* both able and willing to speak
on oar behalf. Since he returned
to Bngland, end eipecially during
tht. Mhtt,' '•** Jtstt, Mr. Holbrook
l»» do* much to correct in the
minds of Bnglishmen erroneous itn-
ptfttiowa) tbout thit provinoe and to
Stot tntbr* the publio some of the
Vtlpjtblt' imwufm md attractions
whioh wt to richly possess. He is
■ tawftbtr *t\ *• J**!"* 'or the con-
Mmijtmttt tkt empire, a position
which brings him privately and publicly into contact with many of the
most influential statesmen and public men in Great Britain. Lately
he has delivered several addresses in
connection with the meetings of this
league, and he has been able to present admirably certain phases of that
question on which his colonial experience enabled him to speak with
authority. We are sure that the
new authority with whicli thc resolution of council invests him will
always be wielded in the interests
of British Columbia, and especially
in the interests of New Westminster.

JUST ISSUK1) BY
THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
tXiIMXTWDJ
ON THE I0TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the COLUMBIAN Newspaper nnd
Printing Concern was purchased liy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
of New Westminster, tu be known as tho
" Britiah Columbian Printing Co..
Limited," The concern has heen for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the ' British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
tlie now company is to continue the pub*
lication of the British Columbia:? news*
paper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thero will bo no
slackening of the energy hitherto dis*
played in the management of the establishment, and IU patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columiuan will continue to bo en*
tirely Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of ench 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 oity
having been taken over by Mr, T. R.
Pcarson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It il desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new oompany asks for publio patronage on the ground that It is engaged fn
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only to long as iti policy is
consistent with its professions. In consequence of thii business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

To tho Electors of the District of
Hew Westminster,
GENTLEMEN.—In offering myself to
tho District of Wostmlnstor to represent
you In the Commotm this coming opening of the House, I do bo In all sincerity,
believing thnt I run do more for your in*
teresis tlian any of the gentlemen that
have eoino forward so far. I am n thorough
Conservative and In entire sympathy
with the present government, who hnvo
proved themselves the friend ln noed and
in deed to Britisli Coiumbin.
Gentlemen, I hnve my private feelings
and opinions on most of the questions of
tho day, but If I go lo tho Houso by your
sanction to represent you, I shall submit
to your commands nnd directions which
you enn send mo ns the different questions
of tho day present themselves and nsclr*
cHiiistiuices, interests and oplnlonsehnngo
on the spot, to be represented; for I hold
that Ingoing to parliament by your voto
and pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord and master, as some
hnve thought nnd acted accordingly when
out of your reach.
Temperance, gentlemen, is ouo of the
questions that troublo tho district at tlie
present time. Now, gentlemen, when the
right time arrives for us to receive prohibition now* will bo found to work for that
measure with more sincerity or energy
than I, nnd uo government on earth will
bo moro happy to grant that measure than
they; but the time has not arrivod yot, I
am sorry to say, and I say furllier, that
tho timo for prohibition entirely rests
with tho temporance people themselves,
for as soon as they prove their sincerity ln
the cause by petitioning parliament to put
a tax on tea, coffee nnd other articles, and
on Income If noccssnry. thereby providing
revenue to carry on thc government, then
nnd then only can they succeed in their
cause, then and then only can ,1 lie government comply with their wishes. Money
is tho root of nil ovil, bo parsons toll us,
nnd money Is the mighty levor that Is going to lift you Into ■huti haven of temper*
nnce ydu all so desire and dream of.
Gentlomen, I fully realize the Importance of your selecting a good and proper
man to repres»ntyou at Ottawa, and I also
fully realize tho fact that I at so great dU-
tanco nm working to a grent disadvantage; hut, gentlemen, I trust, to your Intel*
ligencuund tothe friendship of my old
friends, and feel sailsiled you will do Justice to yourselves who ure to bo benefitted
or injured l.y your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to sorve ynu sincerely and faithfully ln
nll things If sont lo the Commons lore-
present you there, and if you do not I oan
slop ut homu,,liu^p you,.when I cau, and
sincerely wish you rimy bo ns well served
as 1 woiild like to servo you myself
Gentlemen, you cnu give me my answer
at the polls, and whether I go or stay I
shnll always remain
Yours truly and Blnceroly,
do24*dlew-wtc       JAMES CODVILLE.

There were 10,000 men on eaoh side,
and the sceno was very imposing. As

The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
In another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
justify the ecomium. whito
the shareholder, present bestowed upon
th. management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in wbloh the Company hu declined to embark upon extravagant
method, of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income tbe very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point at*
testing tbe soundness of the finances of
th. Company Is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to nay tho death
claims—which iu a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The au ts and liabiiitlea are
set forth In minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a sorplus of 8282,1.99
over liabilities and capital combined,
The increase in the assets in the last year
wu 8260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined u the true polioy 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."

Sam Jones aaid to his Boston audience; " I don't know that I am orthodox in every particular. I don't
know that it is necessary tc be. I
feel in my heart, brethren, that orthodoxy in a sense ia just like mathematics in a sense. I believe that if a man
will admit that twice two is four and
let you chain him to that peg you
have got bim on every proposition in
mathematics, for everyone ia worked
out on that principle, that twice two
are four. If a man admits that hois
a .inner and that Jeau. Ohri.t ia the
Son ot God and the Saviour of tinners,
and lets me tie him to that peg, he
can just grate all round. [Laughter.]
It ia not how much tether line a man
has, but where he ia tied to, that is
the point—man, a sinner; Christ, a
Divine Saviour. Brethren, be sure of
one thing, that your halter is tied to
that peg, and  you  are safe  for all
work."

Cashmere Shawls.
It is said that tho shawls left by Tip-
po Sahib's ambassador at Paris in 1787
were regarded as curiosities by tho magnates to whom they were presented and
used as carpets or cut up for dressing-
gowns. Not until after Napoleon's
Egyptian expedition did the cashmere
shawls become fashionable in Europe.
Cashmere shawls are woven from tho
wools of the Thibet goat, and for those
of the highest grade only the finest of
this fine wool is used, one gout yielding
but half a pound of this first-quality
wool at ita annual shearing. The shawls
are all made upon hand-looms, and
sometimes thirty or forty men ore employed for a year and a half, or oven
two years, upon a single shawl. The
gold and silver threads used in the
embroidery of the shawls is made at
Boorhampoor, a Deccan city. A piece
of pure ore is beaten into a cylinder the
tite of a thick reed and it it again beaten
out until it will pats through an orifice
the eight of an inch in diameter. Tliis
wire ia then wound upon several reels,
which work upon pivots, the end of
the thread being patted through still
finer holes and then fattened to a largo
reel, which, whon set in rapid motion,
attenuatea tlie thread still further. The
thread ia then flattened upon a steel
anvil, highly polished, by a skilled
workman. A silk thread is then covered
with thia fine wire.
Shining.
Ledlie was a young boy endeavoring
to walk the "narrow path." The
verso, "Lit your light so shine before
men thn they may see your good
works and glorify your Father which
it in Heaven," bod been fully explained to him by hia teacher some weeks
before, and now this morning, while
reading his Bible, he came acrou the
passage again. Somehow, he and the
verse were antagonistic this clear,
bright morning; Tor some reason he
did not feel like doing what it suggested. Hia thoughts ron on in thit manner: ►
"I don't leel much like letting my
light thine thit morning; if I did, I
lupnoee I would ttay at home and help
mother, now that Biddy has gone.
Plagued thingl I don't see what she
meant to leave mother, without a day'i
warning, too. Mother looks pale this
morning, bnt then that isn't anything
unusual; I believe mother'most almost
does look pole. My! but won't we
have a grand time coasting! We are to
meet at the old red mill on the hill—
that's a rhyme-at nine o'clock. My!
but I will have to hurry; it's after
eight new. What a late breakfast this
morning! I believe mother must have
boen disturbed last night again with
this restless little Tom. There! he is
squalling again, and there goes mother
after him. Dear me! how tired her
eyes look! If I were mother I'd spank
that Tom until he'd stop bothering me.
There's Jim Thompson whistling already."
Ledlie ran out to meet Jim Thompson. "Why Jim," he said, "I hardly
expected you; I thought you said your
folk, were tick 1"
"So they aro, "answered Jim crossly.
"Mother said I ought to stay at home
and help, but she did not say I hnd to,
and I'm not going to be lied to apron-
strings all my life."
"Let your light thine!" Conscience
uid to Ledlie. "But, 0, the boyt
will have auch fun, nnd the men at
the mill are to give us a treat at ten
o'clock, and thia is such a glorious
day!'! pleaded Self.
"Let yonr light thine!" Conscience
spoke -again. "The other hoya
wouldn't stay away if forty Biddies
were gone," argued Solf. "Mother
can get along koase way; she always
does".      !„  ■-'
"Let you* light shine!" louder called
Conscience. "0 my! what a selfish,
mean fellow I am, pretending to be a
Christian, and then wanting to run oft*
and leave mother alone, whon ahe
doesn't look able to be out of bed! I
won't go a step. So there! Perhaps
Jim'U stay- at home, too, if I do."
TheeewersXedlie's repentant thoughts.
Then aloud he wid: "Jim, I'm not
going to ooMt thit morning. Biddy
Eu gone tnd mother needs me. She
hu only two handt to do all the work
with, and tnke care of that Tom, who
ought to have been named 'North-
eute.'"
But the hill il all eglow with ice and
we're to run noes, end have oysters snd
coffee afterward. You wouldn't min
sueh » good time, would you, Ledlie!"
Mkid Jim, ta»jawrited tone.
' "I'ttll yon wlmt; I wouldn't nuts it

chair, frfthlMrtatd^dggtd in hopes
But he waa soon convinced tlint the
right thing wiib to stay at home; so
about the same time that Ledlie hung
his skates up in his closet, Jim walked
into the sitting-room of his heme.
''What brings yon back so soon, my
son?" asked his mother wearily.
"I've come homo to take cure of the
littlo girls, mother. "I shan't stir a
step out of the house this afternoon.
Go upstairs, mother, where you can't
hear them cough, and reBt your head.
I'll promise to amuse thom ub (hey
haven't been amused for many a day."
This was all so new to Jim's mother
that tho tears rushed to Iier eyes. "0,
Jim!" that was all she said ns sho left
the room to seek a quiet spot. She
fell asleep soon after, wondering what
had come over Jim.
As for Ledlie, he spent the morning
doing housework and taking care of
Tom—doing "t(irls' work," as some
would-be manly boys would have ex-
SreBsed it. Ho wiped the breakfast
ishes, swept the kitchen floor, filled
the water-pitchers, and then coaxed
liis mother to lie down and leave Tom
to him. Weary, almost exhausted
with work, and an almost sleepless
night with teething Tom, she fell
asleep, uot to awaken until the noon
bell pealed. Her headache tins passed
away. Sho felt refreshed nnd strengthened, but somewhat disturbed at hm -
ing slept so long. It was nearly lunch
time; her husband would be coming in
and nothing ready. She hastened
down stairs, reaching the dining room
first. Much to her surprise, slie found
the table all ready for lunch—not unly
tho dishes upon it, but neatly sliced
ham, n plate of butter, evenly cut
bread, the boiled eggs peeled and garnished with pnrsley. Her heartfelt
very tender, her eyes grew moist,
Hnd Ledlie beeu so thoughtful?
She opened tlie door into the sitting
room; Tom was sitting in Leddie's
lap, nnd Leddie was showing him n
funny picture ho had drawn on a slate.
"DoodLeddy!" Tom cried out to
his mother. ''Me loves Leddy mure
than tongue can tell."
" Tom has been real good, mother;
he had a nice nap, too; I got the lunch
ready while he wns asleep,"
It was then thnt Ledlle's mother
went up to him, put her hand lovingly
under his ohin, kissed him tenderly,
and echoed her baby's cry:
" My good Ledlie, mother certainly
loves yuu moro than tongue can tell."
Toward evening Jim Thompson
came over to Leddie's. "I'm glad we
didn't go coasting, Led. One of tho
boys broke his leg, aud two more were
hurt, and the oysters were only a joke.
Besides" (and a flush of feeling crept
into Jim's face), "I think it pays to
help mothers; and, Led, I must tell
you something mother said of you, I
told her it wns through you 1 learned
my duty, and then I told hor—just
to mako her laugh—ubout your calling
Tom a, 'North-easter.' She said, whatever little Tom waa, alio thought you
were a South wind, for it was through

migrant air came into hor life—that's

Skobelrff's Bhavk Deed,—On the
day of the reenntuisstuce of the fortress nf Geek Tepe, which Skoboleff
conducted himself, at the head of a
detachment of 800 men, the general
ordered hia men tri throw somo shells
among tlm enemy's cavalry. The first
of these ahell* upsfl* its carriage and
fell in the midst nf tho Russian detachment. There w is a momentary
panic, inn. tlu* ui'tuahinunt seemed on

Suicides —Man is not the only animal thnt commits suicide. Herrings
aud other fishes Imve sought death by
rushing ashore in myriads; regiments
of ants, by deliberately inarching into
streams; swarms of rats, by migrating
in the face uf their deadly foes, and
even butterflies, by flying in immense
clouds straight out to sea. It would
be interesting to learn the causes of
this apparent wholesale and deliberate
self-destruction. Is the act a purely
conscious one, or are the creatures
victims of disease—mental or physical?
