Indian Land Titles.
A deputation of Indians from
Port Simpson, accompanied by two
of the missionaries, is now visiting
Viotoria for the purpose of making
nn arrangement, if possible, for the
settlement of the Indian land question on the northwest coast. This
is a question, as our readers know,
whioh has for some years agitated
the minds of the Indians up the
ooast, as well as tho people throughout the province generally. One of
the Indian deputation accompanied
Rev. Mr. Crosby to this city on Saturday, and at a meeting last night
he explained some of the causes of
the present agitation. .Both the
missionaries and the representatives
of the government have all along
been telling the Indians that when
the land question came to be settled
they might be sure the good queen,
the great mother, would deal justly
and generously by the natives. The
Indians, many of whom are ns ablo
to read and write as the average
white man, have informed themselves respecting the treatment accorded to the native tribes in other
parts of the Dominion, where definite reserves havo been allotted to
them and they have entered into
treaty to surrender the rest of the
land in consideration of receiving
annuities, Knowing these things,
and relying upon thc promises of
justice made by the representatives
of the queen and the gospel, these
people were greatly astonished and
disappointed when the surveyors
came up and began defining the
boundaries of the proposed reservations without first consulting them
or proposing anything looking to a
proper settlement of the whole question. The Indian agent, they say,
made a pretence of consulting some
of them, but it was only a pretence.
Instead of coming at a time when
most of the Indians could be present, or sending word beforehand so
that they could gather a national
council, he came unexpectedly, when
most of them were away off nt their
hun'ing grounds. Moreover, when
the few who were left had begun to
express their views, bji cut them
short and said he did not come there
to hear their long harangues. Tho
preparatory survey was carried on,
therefore, in face of protests ngainst
the injustice of the proceedings, and
a spirit of distrust aud hostility
took possession of the Indian mind.
These people, if we correctly understand their position, do not expect
to receive full value for their land.
What they want first and most is
to be recognised as free men who,
as original possessors of the soil, are
entitled to be consulted and treated
with by thoso who proposo to np-
{iropriate these lands. It is quite
ikely that if sufficient reserves were
assigned to them, and they were allotted small annuities in return for
the extinguishment of the Indian
title to all other lands, they would
be quite satisfied. We do not believe the Indians hold any such extravagant views on the subject of
hereditary rights as some people
have maintained. They have an undoubted claim upon the lands which
lie under their authority, but we
doubt if either thoy or nny persons
for them, have ever seriously laid
down the abstract doctrine that
they possess an absolute an, inalienable ownership of the soil. It will
not do to say that these Indians
were the original possessors, and
must, therefore, be permitted to remain in possession 'or receive the
full market price for their lands.
We do not know who were the original possessors, and it is altogether
improbable that those were who now
claim to be. From timo immemorial it bu been customary for one
nation or tribe to drive out another
and take the land by force. The
weaker baa surrendered its title to
the stronger withont thought of
compensation; and who shall say
tbat the aboriginal tribes now living
about Fort Simpson are by virtue of
first discovery or possession rightful
owners of the soil) If they had
practised the arts and customs of
civilization which recognise tho inalienable character of land that has
been conveyed from tbe crown, the
cue would be very different. No
■uch customs have been prevailing,
and probably the only real title
then people could show is the title
of occupation, a title which probably never cost them a farthing.
Nevertheless it is both just and proper that the Indians, who are in
poueuion at least, should be treated
fairly by etm woni ty "S'1' °' C0K"
quest, claim the whole of British
North America. As a matter of
right they may not be able to claim
compensation for surrendering their
title, font us matter of policy it
would W ">• government to grant
them an annuity. We think they
■re undoubtedly entitled to receive
reservations large enough to meet all
their reuonable requirements, and
to bo confirmed in possession of
these. Boyond that it is doubtful
if thoy «ii put forward any claim
in law or equity thot would stand
rigid scrutiny. Wo think the gov-
srn*MBt ought to make a special*
•fort lo nm thtt Indian land ques
tion now und take measures for the
settlement of it upon n basis that
will prevent any further misconceptions. Delay means only further
complications, and may prove vory
dangerous to all the interests involved. A commission of prudent
men, acquainted with the Indian
character, should be sent without
loss of time, and it should stay tliere
all summer if necessary until the
wholo inatter has been thoroughly
ventilated and exhausted. Better
spend n few thousands of dollars in
peaceful negotiations now than many

To the Electors ofthe Electoral District of New Westminster.
GENTLEMEN:— Shortly after the lamented death of our Into Kepresei.tntlve,
Mr. Homer, I wus Solicited by a number
of my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Gandldnte for the IteprcHeiitu-
thm of the Dlstrlet of New Wc*ttnlnnter In
the House of Commons of Canada. The
personnl solicitation of friends, was short*
ly followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent uud lnllueuinl Electors of the Oity und District, that I felt lt
to bemy duty to place my services at their
disposal. It Is nut thereforo, Gentlemen,
nsuBOlf-nomlnnted candidate, that 1 ask
for your support, but I do so in response to
the request of over four hundred of your
number,  .
To many of you, Gentlemen, who hnve
known me for along time, it is unncceu*
■ury forme to say, thut I am perfeotly
fam 11 Iur with thu great and varied re*
sources of this Province. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experleuee, nnd will (If elected) onable mo (o place prominently be*
foro Parliament, the great resources of
thin Province, nnd the means necessary
to bu employed to nid In their further
development.
It Is Impossible, Gentlemen, In an ad*
drcsB such as this to do moro thau allude
to some of thc questions of Interest nnd
Importance to yon. which an your representative, I would consider it to bo my
duty to bring to thc notice of Parliament.
I Will, however, enumerate a fow matters
of great Importance to us all, in regard to
which It will bo my earnest endeavour to
obtain benulleial legislation.
twill endeavour to liuve removed from
the mouth of our noble Itlver, every Impediment to its free navigation,and havo
necessary lighthouses erected.
1 will endeavor to secure to settlers and
squatters an Immediate title to their
lands. This I consider to be a matter not
only of justice, but nlso of expediency.
Heretofore great. Injustice has been done
ton valuable and deserving class of our
population, to whom, hud justice boon
done and fnellltles ammloil for acqiilrlui;
homesteads, tlie results of their Industry
would, ere this, hnvo done much to devi 1
np tho agricultural capabilities of this lino
district.
I nm aware, Gentlemen, that tlie num*
boi of representatives to whieh cueh provlncoof thp Dominion Ih entitled Is bused
upon population, yet I believe that, owing
to cxeeptiomil 'drcumstuncos, such ub tho
fact that this province contributes to the
revenue of thu Dominion a much larger
percentage, aeeordlng to population, than
any of thu other provinces; aiul nlso to
the fact tbat largo centres of nouuhitlon
aru rapidly being formed In this district—
that It ts entitled to a larger representation ln tho parlinment of the Dominion,
and which ns a matter of Justice I will endeavor to obtain,
I will also endeavour to obtain for the
resldonts of this District bottor postal
fiicllliics, to which they are justly entitle 1.
I will use my boBt efforts to secure equitable rates on nll railway und telegraph
lines, and to have the samo fixed by law.
Tho Interests of British Columbia demand that every impediment In the way
of constructing railways to onr Southern
boundnry and other portions of this district bo removad to nld in tho develop*
ment of our resources. I will endeavor to
have this necoippllshed, and also to obtain nld for the construction of canals and
the Improvement of navigable streams.
I will also consider It my duty to render
all possiblo aid to any legislation whioh
seeks to simplify and render less costly
the administration of Justice, especially
as between Individuals nnd corporations.
My Ipolltical platform Is, lu the first
place, tho Interest of British Columbia,
which I believe can bo best served by my
giving an Independent support to the
presont government, which has not In the
past been unmindful of the Interests
of British Columbia, nnd to whom we
aro Indebted for tht early completion
of the railway, which has brought
un Into communication with the Eastern
Provinces nnd Europe, and through
tho agency of whieh, wo will In the
near future, be placed In direct communion! Jon with Australla.Chlna.Japnn,
and tho Great Eastern Empire, which
must provo to bo of Incalculable value to
this province, and to this district In particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I have only
to say. thnt I am prompted by a sincere
desire io benefit this d iHtrlct and to nld In
promoting Its varied Interests, and I nsk
rour support only upon these grounds,
tis my intention to seo as mnny of you
previous to the election ns time and clr-
eumstnnceswlll admit of ln the meantime.
I remain. Gentlemen,
Vours very truly,

L. SAMUEL,

To the Electors of the District of
Mew Westminster.
aENTI.EMRN.-In offering myself lo
tho District of Westminster to represent
you fn tbe Commons this coming open*
ing of tho House, Ido sn In nil sincerity,
believing that I ean do more for your Interests than any of tho gentlomon that
lmvo como forward so for. I am ft thorough
Conservative nnd in entire sympathy
Willi tho present government, who h ivo
proved themselves the friond In need ..nd
In deed to British Coiumbin.
Gentlemen, I have my private feelings
and opinions on must of the qucstionsof
the day, but if I go to the House liy your
sanction to represent you, I slmll submit
to your commands nnd directions which
you enn Bond mo as t lie different questions
of tho day present themselves nnd as clr*
ci,mstiiiie(>s,inleri'stsiindopii)lonscliange
on tlie spot, to he icpipsontodj/orl hold
that In going to parliament by yonr vote
und pleasure, I gons your trusted agent
and not as your lord and master, as some
hnvo thought and acted accordingly when
ont of your ronch.
Temperance, gentlomon, ls ono of the
questions that troublo tbo district at the
present time. Now,gentlemen, when the
right time arrives for us to receivo prohibition noiKf will be found to work for that
measure with mora sincerity or energy
thnn I, and no government on enrthwTll
be more happy to grant that measure tlian
they; but the time has not nrrived yet, I
am sorry to say, and I say further, thut
the time for prohibition entirely rests
with the temperance peoplo themselves,
for as soon as tiiey prove their sincerity ln
tlio cause by petitioning parliament to put
a tax on ton, coffee and other articles, and
on income If necessary, thereby providing
revenue to carry on tlio government, then
nnd then only can t hey succeed in tlieir
cause, then nnd thou only can the government cor..ply wiih tlieir wishes. Money
istlic root of all evil, so parsons tell us,
nnd money Is tho mighty lever that ls go*
Ing to lift you iuto "luit. haven of temperance you all so desire and dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize the importance of your selecting a good and proper
man to represent you at Ottawa, and I also
fully realize tlio fact that I at so great dis*
tuiiee am working ton great disadvantage, hut, gentlemen, I trust In your Intel*
ligcncoand to tlio friendship of my old
friends, and feel satisfied you will do jus*
tlco to yourselves who are to be benefitted
or Injured hy your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to servo you sineoiVly. and ^faithfully In
nll things if sent lo tho Commons tore-
present you there, and If you do not I enn
stop at home, help yon when I can, ahd
sincerely wis)) you may bu ns woll served
as I would like to serve you myself
Gontlemon, you can give me my answer
at tho polls,'and whether I go in stay I
shall always remain

Served Him Bight.—One day last
week there was a large gathering of
Indians at False Creek, nenr Vancouver, whero there is a sort of rancherie.
A Vancouver man with more business
enterprise than conscience, fancied
that the occasion might be turned, to
profit; so he procured a keg of whiskey and a canoe, and headed for the
native camp, feeling confident of finding a ready market for his stuff. But
it happened that a large majority of
the Indiana were opposed to liquor,
and they made up their minds at once
that they "would not permit thia white
man to turn their camp into a howling
wilderness, if they knew themselves.
Tho man and his keg were taken in
charge, therefore, and conveyed to a
tent. Tho kog was placed on the
ground, nnd the man was ordered to
sit down on it—and he was forced to
keep sitting on it for three daya and
throe nights! A grand council of war
was then held to decide whether he
should be taken to Vancouver and delivered up to the authorities. It waa
decided that he had been sufficiently
punished already, and after knobking
tho head out of the keg and spilling
the whiskey on the ground, the culprit
was allowed to go. If all Indians were
to resist witli such firmness every unlawful attempt to debauch thein, it
would be easy to stamp out the Indian
whiskey trade.

Kicked by a Horse.
A lomiB Mnn Mu Hin In* Hr Hou* Injuries.
A young mun named Harry Norris
sustained serious injuries by being
kicked by a horse. He was employed
by John Lovell. a butcher uf this city,
to drive Iub delivery wagon. Last
evening ho went to Lovell's slaughter
house with tho intention of hitching
the horso to tho delivery cart. In
some unexplainable way, as he was
getting into the cart, the horse started,
throwing him forward and giving him
a terrible kick in the faco as he fell.
The young man had presence of mind
enough to immediately put his coat
over tho wound and start for his cabin.
Dr. Cooper was called in nnd dressed
the wound. Ib war, found that he liad
sustained serious injuries, his face and
nose being terribly eut nnd bruised.
He was removed to the hospital this
morning where, at last accounts, he
was much improved. The injured
man has only been a short time in the
city and has no friends in tlie country.

Was It Murder?
FURTHER PARTICULARS RELATIHO TO THE
DEAD INDIAN.
From information given liim by au
Indian, Oapt. Pittendrigh iwued a
warrant for the wrest of the three
Indians who were seen drugging a
body on the Port Moody rond yosterday, on a suspicion of murder, aud
provincial police were immediately despatched to Port Moody with orders to
arrest tho Indians and also bring the
dead body to this city that an inquest
might be held. An Indian living in
the swamp below this city was also
arrested last ovening oil u similar
charge and brought up bofore the police magistrate this morning. The
magistrate however remanded the prisoner for eight days. It seem, to be
tho general opinion of the authorities
that it is a case of murder and they
are determined to sift the matter to
the bottom. So far nothing ha. been
heard from Port Moody, although it
is expected that the prisoners and
body will be brought in on the train
this evening. ,

Chinese Vengeance.
THEY PERJURE THEMSELVES TO OBTAIN REVENGE-ARREST OF THE THREE
CONSPIRATORS.
Hoe Hou, a Chinaman, hns been up
before the Victoria police court recently charged with obtaining money
under false pretences. Three of hi*
fellow countrymen have been the principal witnesses iu bis prosecution. On
Thursday last, however, tho defendant accused these witnesses of perjuring themselves, and a complaint
to that effect waB laid bofore
Judge Harrison, who immediately
issued warrants for their arrest. Tho
orders liave beeu carried out and the
Chinamen have beon arrested. From
tho evidence of these three Cinnamon
a clear case was proven auainst Hoo
Hou, but the counsel for the defence
culled several witnesses who directly
swore that Hoo Hou was a mile away
from the store at the time it ii alleged
he passed ths confederate note. It is
stated that the whole affair arose from
the defendant being instrumental in
the rescue of a Chinese girl from it lite
of degradation. Out of revenge, and
to put Hoc Hou out of the way, they
concocted the conspiracy which they
put in operation ns bofore stated.
Startling developments are expected,
as Hoo Hou aays ho never saw lhs
note before it was produced in conrt.
He is confideut of proving his innocence and of proving the three Chinese guilty of wilful and corrupt per-

contended that the lire bull already
belonged to the council according to
the by-law. Couu. Hold differed. Ho
said the firemen had a private interest
in the hall; that they hud improved it
uut of their own private funds. Coun.

Tlie Reign ot Terror.
A correspondent thus desoribes
"life in s quiet county in Ireland":—
Said a resident to iug, " We can't
hsve any dinner parties now, for we
don't like asking our friends to bo out
after dark. It is not safe for it to bo
known  that you   will  pass alone a
Siren road late at night." After
ark in the quiet county the doors sre
securely bolted, the shutter., in some
instances of iron, are barred, and all
thing, sre made safe against a surprise. Ill some families the ladies aro
taught the use of the pistol, which has
become about aa indispensable an artiole of domestic furniture as if one
lived in the wild, of Texas. A visitor
seldom come, on a friendly errand
after dusk; but once, at a bouse where
I was staying, thero resounded through
the hall a loud knock at S o'clock on a
rainy evening in October. Of course
no servant would dream of opening
thc dour under suoh circumstances.
The master of the house rose, exnin
ined hi. pistol, and then cocked it.
Hi. son-in-law did tho snme, and
placed hinuolf at an angle of the
drawing-room door so aa to command
the opening of the hall door. To the
challenge, " Whu'a there)" the reply
came, "THe police." This was not
conclusive;' the least quick-witted foe
wuuld ba sure to have that answer
ready. Holding his pistol in one
hand, the master slowly took down
the iron bars which secured tho door,
and it wa. not until he recognized the
wet and shiny face of the sergeant
that-he loosed the final chain and admitted his guest. Then, aud not till
then, did the hearts of the three ladies who waited in the drawing-room
begin to beat again in normal fashion.
Causes or Earthquakes
Variou. causes may be conceived as
possibly producing tho .hock. For
example, when the roof of a subterranean cavity collapses, a concussion
must be produced which may have
the effeot of sn earthquake at the surface. In limestone countries, auch ns
C.rniola, the ground is honeycombed
with grottoes and passage., and slight
■hook, of earthquake are of frequent
occurrence, due no doubt to the falling in of tome of theae underground
cavern.. Hore violent effects might
arise from the collapse of large emptied volcanic reservoirs, aa perhaps
has occurred at the extinct volcano of
Isolds. Again, the rock, and the
crust are in a state of continuous
strain, dm to various causes, and especially lo the gradual contraction that
arise, from ths slow cooling of the
planet. From time to time there
probably ■ come moment, when they
oan no longer bear these stresses, and
when, consequently, they snap .sunder and readjust themselves in a new
position of equilibrium. ... It
I. pouible that explosive steam may
be the cause of earthquake shocks,
even where no actual volcano is
farmed. We may suppose, for instance, thst sea-water sometimes gains
access to the highly heated interior of
the earth. The sudden generation of
steam aa tho water passes out of the
spheroids! condition can hardly
fail to cause an explosion,
snd thus to start an earthquake.
Or if a large mass of steam imprisoned
within some heated subterranean cavity be suddenly condensed by access
of cold water from above a violent
shock will take place. One of the
great problems in the physics of the
earth a if possible to trace out individual earthquakes to their several
modes of production. The task is a
difficult though by no means a hopeless one. But until some considerable progress has been made with it,
earthquakes must remain one of the
most curious and interesting puzzles
that can engage the ingenuity of scientific men.—Archibald Oeikie.
Who Will be the Next Pope?
Who will ho the noxt pope? Ho may
not be a wearor of the sacred purple.
A nuncio liko Vnnnutolli, Rampolla
or di Rondo might take a short cut
from the red hat to the triple crown.
But I am supposing that the chances
lio among the present cardinals. These
may be divided iuto irreconcilable nnd
conciliatory. Old and feeble cardinals,
whose names I will not give, may he
cancelled. Tho "papabili,"or elcgible
cardinals, are Farocchi, San Folks,
Sinieoni, Monaco la Valetta, Czacki,
Alimondi and Capecelatro. These
soven princes of the churoh contain
somewhere nmong them the chrysalis
of the succession of Leo XIII. Cardinal Jacobiui, who likes his liberty und
innocent • pleasure, would refuse the
tirrn. Cardinal Hoheniohe is compromised in an all-round sort of way.
Cardinal Bonaparte represents a finished dynasty. Cardinal Zigliara the
Dominican, like cardinal Herge Ros-
ther, iB a scholarly recluse. The curi-
alist cardinals have been mere red-
tape promotions to red robes. Lastly,
the tune luw not yet come for a foreign
and especially an English-speaking
pope. Remember that this is not saying thut such an eventuality is quite
out of reach at a future and a not very
remote date. But these hints nro
about the next conclave nnd not nbout
posterity popeB.
Cardinal Parrochi, the former Archbishop of Bologna, may be taken as
the symbol of a perpetual stund-up
fight with the quirminl government.
He is now in his fifty-fourth year and
is acting bishop of Rome. He refused
tho exequator of the Italian government for the archbishopric of Bologna
nnd resigned that important see rather
thnn play a game of time-serving. This
vigorous earnestness will, of courso,
tell againBt his chances for the popedom, if Italy is nlldwed to whisper
through the keyhole of the next con-
clavo. Thore is, however, a prevailing superstition that Lucido Maria
Purocchi is the coming pope. The
proverb Bays that he who enters the
conclave ns pope mostly emerges from
it a cardinal. But 1 put Farocchi
down advisedly as first favorite according to tho betting of to-dny.—.Rome

The Increase or Wealth.
There was no income-tax in Britain
when the Queen ascended the throne.
It was only introduced in 1842 by Sir
Robert Peel, and until 1864 the tax
was imposed only in Great Britain.
From 1865, howevor, we have tho
means of comparing the rehmvo advance of wealth all over the United
Kingdom, and the figures ure interesting. In 1866 the taxable income of
England and Wales wob £257,000,000.
In 1886 it had risen to £533,000,000,
showing an increase of 100 per cent.
In 1865 the taxable income of Scotland was £30,000,000. Iu 1886 it was
£01,000,000, showing an increase of
108 pet cent And Ireland, which is
asserted to be so poor, in 1855 had an
income of £22,000,000, and in 1885 of
£37,000,000, showing an increase of 08
per cent; the total income of the United Kingdom having increased in the
thirty years from £308,000,000 to £631,
000,000, or in the proportion of 105
per cent. Capitalize the different descriptions of incomes by their respective value at so many years' purchase,
nnd we hsve ume idea of the immense
■mount of wealth it shows to have
been created daring the last fifty
yean. But wiih our own eyes wo see
the increase of wealth in the increasing number of princely residences in
tht metropolis and ull large towns, in
the high prices which the works of art
of reu value realixe, in the competition
whioh ii shown tor the appropriation
of nny articles of real worth now and
again coining into the market, and in
ths luxury indulged in by every one
who aspire, to a puce among the higher nnn in aoonty. Trade has been
dull of late years, and it may be that
the annual amount of savings now is
not ao gnat: as it haa beon, but it is
considerable notwithstanding. And

Whitk Bronze Monument*. — White
Bronse is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It hu
been found to bo so Well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiment! made by
these companies, It has beon 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 bronse,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are oast 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 surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide whioh
forms on this bronse is indistructtble by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and atr cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to he immeasurable, No corrosion, It is affirmed,
oan take place.—Boston Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronse

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
'•Treatment by Absorption has for some
timo been recognized by Medical Men to
be tbe most simple nnd effectual means
of convoying to Diseased OiganB, "Curatives,'" but .11 oases of Kidney Disease aijd

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing   Company
(LIMITEJ33.1
ON THK 10TH OF JANUARY, 1S87,
tho Columiuan Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased hy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to he known as the
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited.11 The concern has been for
nearly a yoar owned and controlled by
tho British Columbia Stationery nnd
Printing Company, of Now Westminster.
Victoria and Vancouver, llio object of
tho uow company Is to continue tho publication of thu BuiTMii Columiuan newspaper and carry ou a general printing nud
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thosa whoso individual interest it will be
to promote tho development,, especially
of tho Mainland. Thero will lie uo
slackening of tho energy hitherto dis*
played in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Thc Columiuan will continue to be entirely independent iu both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may he considered iu 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 hy Sir, T. K.
Pearson, wbo will continue to carry It on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should he maintained lu this city, and
tho new company asks for publio patronage on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise caloululcd to promote the
public welfare. It nsks tliat the Columbian ho judged on its owu merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
consistent with its professions. In consequence of this business change all ac*
counts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that tbo books of the
former oompany may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to
