current Events and Opinions.
Work is now going on apace in
preparation for tho opening of the
Antwerp Exhibition on the 2nd inst.
In the Canadian section considera-
able activity is being shown, and we
hear that tho whole of the exhibit
ns well ns the Canadian Pacific Railway's exhibit, hits been shipped. An
excellent site has been awarded, to
the company's "Manitoba Farm,"
which the Council of tlie Exhibition
fully recognize will be one of the
groat attractions of the exposition,
The farm will be double tho size of
that exhibited at Edinburgh, and
will contain a great many additional
features of importance. Tho ground
has already been laid out, and Mr.
Alexander Begg (under whose direction the work is carried on) is certain to have everything in readiness
for tho opening day. The Railway
Company also have a stall in a
prominent position in the Canadian
court.—Canadian Gazette {lCwj.)
Secretary Bayard lias replied to
the request to take action in the
cases of Burton and Cunningham,
who are charged with participation
in tho recent atrocious attempt to
murder innocent men, women, and
children by blowing up public buildings in London. The secretary's
letter is a dignified und proper statement of tlio position of tho government. It will lend promptly all
lawful aid possible to secure a just
and fair trial to any American citizen charged as a criminal in a foreign country, and triable within its
jurisdiction. The secretary adds
that tliere is no provision by law to
pay for counsel iu such coses, nor
for agents to report the proceedings,
but that ho hopes that a proper appropriation will be mado by congress for tho supervision of important trials of Americans abroad and
for an intelligent report of serious
cases. There is no buncombe of any
kind in the letter, which states
plainly and strongly the sound
American doctrine upon the subject.
While there is no reason to doubt
that the honor of the American
name and tho rights of overy American citizen will bo promptly and
energetically maintained by this administration upon every occasion
and at overy point, there is also no
ground for supposing that tho Department of State will be conducted
upon the principles of "nagging"
England or any other friendly
power. Tho most serious disturbances in foreign countries are imminent, and it is certainly a causo for
congratulation that the Department
of State is under the direction of a
wise and ablo and experienced public man, whose course will be neither
pugnacious nor sensational, and will
undoubtedly command the approval
aud support of the most patriotic
and intelligent opinion of all parties
in the country.—Harper's Weekly,
The British Columbian.

NUMBER 41
dizement, by which in her Slavonic
provinces she is herself perpetually
threatened; and tho tone of the
Vienna press is in fact much more
friendly than that of tbe German.
But with her rickety and nervous
frame Austria shrinks from all bold
action and, at the opening stage of
a conflict tit all events, no assistance
could be expected at her hands.
The Afghan tribes are brave, and
likely to inako a good stand against
the Russians, if they will mako a
stand at all; but they are uncivilized, passionate, fickle, uncertain iu
all their actions, nor liavo they any
centralized or regular government
to answer for their conduct to an
ally. Fortunately, the present
Ameer appears to be a man whose
personal forco makes up for the lack
of constitutional power. Should the
day go hard with England,.however,
all the nations which are menaced
immediately or remotely by Russian
aggression may begin to see the
danger of allowing her to succumb.
—The Week.
To what combinations a war
might lead in its course, it is impossible to foresee. But at her first
entrance into it England would be
likely to have no ally except the
Afghans. Her natural ally in a
war with Russia would bo Turkey,
It is true the Turk hns little reason
to love Mr. Gladstone or Mr. Gladstone's supporters; yet if ho were
left to himself the instinct of self-
preservation would be certain to
prevail over disageeable reminiscences But ho is apparently held
back by Bismarck, whose malevolence towards England bus now become manifest, Tho amicable Chancellor has probably two motives of
policy besides that of personal resentment, He wishes England and
Russia to exhaust each other by
war: he also wishes the Colonial
Empire of England to be ruined, in
order that an opening may be made
for the Colonial Empire of Germany,
that object of his sudden aspirations,
though he will hardly brighten the
future of German colonies by making the Anglo-Saxon colonies their
enemies all over the world. Italy
is thoroughly friendly, thanks largely to the sympathy shown hor by
Mr. Gladstone in the days of her
adversity; but sho is afraid to placo
herself by the side of England in a
position of such peril, and she has
now the Mahdi, who is about as
much as she can manage, on her
hands, From France no generous
treatment ever has been received or
cun be hoped for by England. She
went into partnership with England
in tho Egyptian business, threw her
partner overboard at the crisis, and
uow takes advantage of England's
distress to bully tho Egyptian government, after which she will recommence her tirade against perfidious Albion, Besides, she looks to
Russia us her possible ally on the
day when sho shall arm to tako her
revenue on Germany and recover
Alsace-Lorraine, The heart of Austria ought to bo with England as
the antagonist of Russia's aggran-
8lr Peter Lumsden.
Washington, Apr, 28.—One of the
members of the English Legation furnishes somo interesting gossip regarding Sir Peter Lumsden. "From his
youth," said this gentleman, "Luiiib-
tlen has been a man of war. He first
saw war in the servicu nf the East India
Company, and distinguished hiumulf as
a youngster in thu terrible mutiny of
1857. Ho learned tho Hindustani dialects yearn ngo. When Sir Frederick
Roberts was on bis way to Candahar,
a fow years ago it wns uf the utmost
consequence that he should haro some
accurate knowledge of tlio route and
forces likely to oppose him in the
mountain passes. This information
Sir Peter LuinBden volunteered to obtain. Throe days elapsed and hu had
not roturtied. Geo. Roberts wns sitting in his tent when a Fakir, or holy
man, suddenly appeared tiding furiously down the mountain side. He
was an extraordinary looking creature,
hia only garment being a pair of dirty
trousors made uf goatskin. His hair
nearly reached to bis waste, and his
lean, brawny arms wure covered with
a pastu made of sandal wood ashes
mixed with castor oil—a decoration of
peculiar sanctity and powerful smell.
The General came out and asked his
visitor what ho wanted. Tho reply in
a barbarian jargon was a request fur a
private interview.
"When thoy were alone the Fakir
Baid: 'Dun't you know me?' It was
Lumsden, whoso disguise—dirt, wig
and all—had beeu so complote as to be
tmauspectud by a man whose intimate
friend he had been for ten years.
Knowing how superstitious tho Afghans are, Lumsden had selected a disguise they would not readily question.
He knew the dialect of tho class lie
represented perfectly, mid whenever
he approached nn Afghan encampment
he dashed fearlessly up yelling: 'Lull
Allah Mahmoud resoti! Allah," the
mystic words of the faithful. His
identity was nover suspected. The information hu obtained enabled tin
English to capture Candahar aud run
derud the campaign the most successful
onu evor made among thoso bleak
mountains;
"For this sorvicu Gen. Lumsden
wns, in duly, 1881, commiBsinuod n
Major-Getierul of the Bengal staff and
given £10,000. This is' n man un
whose report aud judgment nbovo all
others rest the chances of a war that
may change the entire map of Central
Asia."
Not Ilia Property,
"Will you bo kind enough to tako
that gripsack off thnt seat1" said a
countryman, who got on a train at
Lul ing.
"No, sir, I don't propose to do anything of tho sort," replied tho drummer who was Bitting on the other side
of the seat.
uDr. you say that you aro going to
lot that gripsack stay right there?"
"Yob, sir, I do."
"In caso you don't remove that gripsack, I Bhall be under .tho painful necessity of calling the conductor."
"You can call in the conductor, the
engineer, and the brnkemen if you
want to. Perhaps you had better stop
at the next station nud send n special
to old Jay Gould himself about it,"
"Tho conductor will put you oil* the
train."
"I don't caro if ho does, I am not
going to tako that gripsack from that
plnco whoro it. is."
The indignant passenger went
through the train, and soon returned
with tlio conductor.
"So you refuse to remove that gripsack, do you ?" asked tho conductor.
"1 do."
Great sensation.
"Why do you persist in refusing to
remove that gripsack V
"Because it's not mine."
"Why didn't yuu aay so at once!"
"Because nobody naked ino."—Terns
Siflings,
SUII on the Watch.
A Now York special says: When the
English mnn of-war Canndn arrived
here on Thursday, the captain handed
sealed instructions from his home officer to Commander Hand of tho Garnet,
They were to bo opened on receipt of
a dispatch from Halifax, Tho telegram
came at 0:30 this forenoon, aud tho instructions on being opened, ordur the
Garnet to procoed at onco to sea, without letting anyone know her destination until aftor the ship got clear of
this const. Within half an hour the
Garnet weighed anchor, hoisted her
sails and wns on her way down the
narrows. Tho departure wnB a complete surprise to ovory one. The vessel is bolioved to have been ordered
to Bermuda, but there is uo authority
for tho statement. The Canada still
remains at anchor in the harbor. She
has prohably taken the place of lhe
Garnet in watching the Itussian corvette. One of the officers Baid to-day
tliat the Camilla was a much better
lighting ship than (he Garnet, and that

Special   Luncheon
%\\t British Columbian.
Saturday Murning, May 28.1885.
The Ottawa correspondent of tho
Victoria Colonist mentions thut tho
senntft hus amended the Scott Act
so as to permit the snle of beer and
light wines in counties wliere the
net 1ms been adopted, and says: "It
is generally believed that when the
bill goes buck to the commons for
concurrence that it will be struok
out immediately. Temperance sentiment in the lower chamber is too
strong to permit of any trilling on
the question, the tendency of the
times being to make still stronger
the bands of prohibition rather
than to weaken thein."
It is quito probable that the
despatch whicli came through last
Tuesday night giving an account of
Col. Otter's capture of Pound maker
is a fraud. The despatch purported
to come from San Francisco, and
appeared among tlie regular press
telegrams. It lias not lieen confirmed, however, and as no reference
has boen made iu any subsequent
dispatches to Col. Otter's exploit,
the whole thing begins to look suspicious. Our despatches yesterday
afternoon state, however, that
Poundmaker is anxious to surrender, and probably the others are in
a similar mental condition.
Speaking of the Saturday night
meeting held in this city tlie Victoria Colonist says: The resolutions
passed by the public meeting at
New Westminster ought to open
the eyes of the Ottawa government
to the pernicious effect that the
land and timber regulations promulgated by the recent order-in-council
will exert on tho cliief industries of
the province. If tlie rate charged
for public lands is advanced to
§2.50 an acre, and if the proposed
heavy tax on timber is imposed,
settlement on tlie railway belt will
cease, scores who are already there
will throw up their holdings and quit
■ the country, and provincial lumber
mills, unable to compete with mills
on the American side, will shut
down. In this threatening state
of ufl'airs what is to be done!
Appeal to the Ottawa government
to rescind the order-in-council and
failing relief to declare the union
dissolved and British Columbia free
to return to her allegiance to the
old Hagl A sentiment similar to
this, expressed at New Westminster, was ominously applauded. The
new regulations are most hurtful to
the province and arc not what were
stipulated under the Settlement Aet,
They are, in fact, a direct violation
of that remedial measure and will
not be tolerated without a struggle
whieh may end in a disturbance of
the friendly relations between Canada and the province."
The land Regulations.
Our young cotemporary flounders
over Thk Columbian's statement
respecting Dominion lands, and
gives fresh proof of both his stupidity and prejudice. It was not
our purpose in referring to the matter to make a "defence of thn government," but tn prevent settlers
and others from being deceived by
a false statement. The Telegraph
prints a very much garbled version
of sect. 9 of the land regulations,
and then declares that Tub Ooi.m-
niAN has beeu guilty of "wilful
perversion of the truth" in stating
that the lands would lie 81 an acre.
What The Columbian did say was
this; ■'The land regulations recently
issued state that the price of homestead lands may be fixed by order-
in-council. and Mr. Homer not long
ago telegraphed that by an order-in-
council tho price had actually lieen
fixed at §1 per acre." Sect, 9 of
the regulations, in as far as it relates
to the price of lands, is as follows:
Dominion Innds, ns the surveys thereof
are duly made nnd confirmed,'shall, except ai otherwise hereinafter provided,
he open for homestead im; and purchase
at such prices and conditions ns may he
fixed from time to time hy the governor-
fn-council; provided that im purchase
shall be permitted at a less price than
82,.ri0 per acre.
Tito mistake made by our young
cotem. is in not discriminating between   lands   for   "purchase" and
lands   for   "homesteading."    Pur*
chased lands.are not to be less than
82.150 por acre (thp rate fixed for
provincial  lands), but the regulations do not fix tlie price of lands
taken   up   for   homesteads.     Mr.
Homer, however, has  telegraphed
that homestead lands will be $1 an
acre,  and   Mr.   Cunningham  tho
other day received a telegram from
Senator Mclnnes in which Uio same
statement is made.   The fact is that
the governor-in-council has, under
the  authority expressly conveyed
by  the   Oth section ahove quoted,
fixed the price of lands taken up
for homesteads in this province at
t?l per acre. We should not have
referred to this matter again were
it not that the stupid assertions of
our young cotemporary might possibly reach the ears of some people
who would be deceived and embarrassed by them.
Almost Escaped.
When the house committee was
investigating tho Coal Harbor squatters' claims at Victoria The Columbian maintained that au investigation so conducted might result in
conclusions such as would not commend themselves to public confidence. Subsequent developments
clearly show that these misgivings were not groundless. Tt will
be remembered that tho first report
of the committee actually recommended the Spinks-Groer claim to
the favorable consideration of the
house. This report, however, no
sooner became known than the
fallacy of it was pointed out by
this journal, and the Spinks-tireer
title pronounced a. forgery. The
committee was, thereupon, instructed by the house to reconsider its
report, and when it appeared the
second time it was found that this
particular claim had been eliminated from the favored list. The
committee, however, recommended
that a commission be appointed to
ascertain, if possible, who committed the forgery. Chief Justice Sir
M. 11. Begbie was commissioned for
this purpose, and his enquiries resulted in the arrest of Sir. Greer,
one of the claimants, who is now
imprisoned on a double charge, wc
believe, of forgery and perjury.
The pubjic will see how narrowly
justice escaped from being grossly
deceived. If the evidence taken
before the committeo liad not been
published before the house took
action on the report, probably the
forgery would not have been noticed until too late; and if the for-
;ery had not been exposed, in all
ikeliliood Mv. Greer aud his associates would have been compensated
out of the provincial treasury for
a clever piece of rascality. Tn saying this we do not mean to imply
that all those gentlemen who were
interested in this claim were parties
to the forgery, or were even cognizant of it. Some of them, we believe, were innocent victims; but it
certainly would bo most unfair for
the country to be made to pay for
their want of caution. It is quite
possible that if some of the other
claims had been examined by a
court of justice or a judicial commission, instead of before a parliamentary committee, they might
have been shown to be entirely
without foundation.
On the Right Track.
We endorse cordially, the last
resolution passed by the public
meeting on Saturday night. This
resolution instructed our representative at Ottawa that unless the
government made reasonable eon-
cessions in the grievances complained of, he should withdraw his
support. We have more than once
exnrcsscd the opinion that if our
Ottawa representatives were to
maintain a more independent attitude they would be able to accomplish a great deal more for their
province. If the government feels
quite sure that tlie votes of the
British Columbia members may be
depended upon for party purposes,
it will not be apt to concern itself
much about any grievances tliat
may come up for adjustment. Tho
good things within the gift of the
government are commonly reserved
for those constituencies whoso loyalty is doubtful, and whose support
it is thought necessary to seek
after. It has not been the practice of British Columbia to mix
itself up with Canadian party politics. It has heen our policy and
practice to give support to such
administrations as showed a disposition to deal fairly by our province.
If people say this is a purely sellish
policy we could reply with perfect
truth that it is, and that selfishness
will he found to lio at the foundation of overy political parly now
existing on this continent, There
may be no party without certain
"great principles" whieh have beeu
made to do duty as » kind of platform advertisement; but it is not
these principles which form tlie
mainsprings of action in the party.
The prospect of ollice or of spoils,
or the glory of a party triumph, are
far more often the true motive
power. If tho peorh; of Uritish
Columbia have not permitted tlieir
sympathies to become entangled
with party politics as understood
and practised in the east, and if
they have failed to detect any real
principle worth contending for in
the national politics, there remains
nothing hut to pursue the policy
that would bring the greatest bono-
fit to the province. At the present
moment we have many grievances,
and there is danger thai lhe stupidity of the federal administration
may seriously retard our development. Under these circumstances
it seems right and proper that our
representatives should let the government at Ottawa know that their
support could be had only upon
the condition of justice to this
province.

aud Mr. R. H. Alexander, manager of

Chinamnn was convicted of supplying

with hard labor. In default of payment of the fine thu imprisonment

that this man was employed by auoth
er Chinaman named Ali King, who
keeps a den which is the resort of Indian women. King was present, but
slipped out whon he saw how matters
were going. He was afterwards arrested, and brought beforo the court
yestorday morning, convicted under
tho Indian act of keeping a disorderly
house, and sentence reserved. We
sincerely hope the magistrates and
police will succeed in stamping out the
disgraceful practices which are said to
be carried ou in tlio Chineso quarters

Terminal Works.—A statement
was laid before the Canadian House of
Commons the other day showing thu
financial condition of tliu Canadian
Pacific Railway syndicate, mid the requirements for finishing thu road. Thu
estimated expenditure to June, 1806,
for additional equipment and imDrpve-
ments, nuil for additional facilities
necessary to advantageous operation
and full development of traflic, is
stated at $5,045,000. Among the
items composing this sum we find the
following: For connection with Coal
Harbor nnd English Bay, shops, buildings, docks, tracks, and other facilities
at Pacific terminus, §750,000. If this
sum is intended to cover the cost of
building tho extension from Port
Moody to Coal Harbor, as woll as constructing the terminal works, it seems
ridiculously smull aud insufficient. We
are aware that the government is
bound to build a wharf, round-house,
nnd some other structures at tho terminus, but Mr. Van Horne stated
whon he was hero that the syndicate
would spend upwards of 85,000,000
on terminal works alone.
Is It■ True?—Tho Ottawa correspondent of the Globe Bays: *^It seems
that the British Columbia members
have agreed to Btimd by Sir John Macdonald in his offorls to wipe out manhood suffrage as it prevails in that
province. None of the Pacific coast
representatives have spoken yet, but
it is understood that the promier has
persuaded thum that unless thoy choose
to abandon manhood suffrage the Chinese cannot be logically prevented
from forming a part of the voting population. So the British Columbians
consented to givu up manhood suffrage,
and allow a huge number of whito men
to be disfranchised iu order lo keep the
Chinese out, Thero is no reason why
the Chinese should not bo excluded
without depriving white men of their
votes, so that thu British Columbia
members havo displayed au amount of
servility that does them no credit. It
is also reported that the Conservative
members from Prince Edward Island,
finding that Sir John will not permit
that province to retain its present
qualifications for voters, aro anxious to
pair off, so as to avoid voting against
their leader. Thu opposition have resolved not to pair with anybody. They
arc all anxious to record thoir.vote
against ovory feature of the Franchise
Bill, and desire that no Tory member
Bhall shirk Iub share of responsibility

Gordon's Last Days.
The following is the conclusion of a
narative of the last days of Khartoum
as given by an Egyptian who was
among tlie besieged: Gordon's paper
notes went round like cash. They
wore looked upon as cosh. They were
lookod upon as money; Thoy were
mostly one-piastre notes; others for
five and ten piastres (a real, or guinea)
up to 500 piastres. All mine are goue.
I spent - them in the desert, where I
would buy water, a cup for ten piastres. The schools went on as usual,
Mohammedan also, at the Genesi, till
tho priests (Italian) left. The little
German tailor, Klein, remained till
tho last; 25 yoars had be resided iu
Khartoum. His wife and four daughters remained too. They did not go
with Stewart, I urn sure. There wore
several white women there when I
left—daughters of Europeans by Ays-
siiii.'iii wives, whom thoy had bought.
Thero wore two or threo ladies nt the
Austrian consul's. I think all these
had so many family ties they would
uot leave; besides, Gordon always said,
"The English are coming." I do not
know that your coming would have
altered matters; for thia I tell you
advisedly, the will uf God says it,
there were traitors in our midst; they
took council together against .Gordon
Pacha. He was warned, but said
'Suffer it to be bo." Tho plan was to
deliver over the city whenever the
English drew near. The number of
traitors increased daily as they got
hopeless. Another thing, and this
decided many: after the battle of
Abou Klea the rebels went down and
collected all tho helmets they could
find. They showed these to us, waving thom outside thu trenches and saying, "Thus aud thus have we eaten up
the Feriughees." Thus uvuu faithful
men were sorely tempted and became
sick at heart. At night the enemy
usod to be often at the south end, nt
sneaking distance; and we used to revile each other. Wo wero called the
cursed rebels who spenk ovil of the
fathers and mothers of thu third and
fourth generation. We would call
them "sous of dogs." The English
stayed too long at Matumuah; perhaps

Ottawa, May 20.—Tliere is a good
deal of speculation ns to the cause of
Lord Melgund's return from the noith-
weat at this particular moment. It is
thought he has been instructed to place

l'oundmnker without definite orders, before the minister of militia. Col. Otter's
instructions were to relieve Battleford,

of liis engaging the Big Cree chief unless
the Indians made an attack. It is also
thought lie is here to explain thc exact
situation of affairs En the Northwest, and
get further advice for Gen. Middleton's
guidance in his future actions, His
original intention being merely to suppress the half-breed rebellion, and to re-
'.ieve boleagurcd places, and no Indian
massacres have boon reported. Ho is
also hero to ascertain what plan Ccneml
Middleton Bhall pursue in punishing redskin depredations. Lord Melgund will

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music us being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, wliich
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, wliere it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
lirst-class instruments made by leading
city aud country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The preseut prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of smnll
things. It liad its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen yeurs ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with tlie business. About ten
years go John M'esley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Plggott, ihe
manager of the manufacturing department; and W, S. Russell, superintendent of tlie tuning department, bought
out the - shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus wns
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings.
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 250 bandB, who receivo in wages
about 915,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is thc linn's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide ana Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
Tlie instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of tlio Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against tlie side
wall of a room, ami ib convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tlie
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, ana is
suited for occupying a prominent position iu drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick aud easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musirnl quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to (1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pcvilion.
The largest organ which tho Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
preseut at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which lias
been placed in position to await tlie
arrival of the big instrument. The oi-
gauB run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The cases show won-
erful variety. Many of these arc of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
Tlw yent wiiUtt-secured for the Company
a prize at ttie Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artis
tic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested tho organs affirmed that for sweet-
ncsB of tone and elasticity of touch they
aro model instruments; wliite visitors
can themselves judge ns to the beauty
and style of the cases.

EniToit Cou'-MiiiAN. — Sonic it.OOO
years ago, tliere went furth a champion
who challenged the armio3 of Israel:
"ChooHo you a man aiul let him come
down   tn  meet   me;"   and  tho  cry
throughout the host wns: "Hnvo you
such this ninil that is come?    Surely
tu defy Isi-nel is he como,"   And thero
went   forth   hut  a youth to do liim
combat,    hut when tho giant saw tho
buy lm disdained him: "Como on, and
I will   give  thy  llesh to tho fowls uf
tho air."   To-dny, iu defence of Catholic   doctrine   nnd   Bible truth,   the
peculiar treasure of tho church militant, I i.t:iud forth to return tho charge
of   one   who,   though   despising   my
youth (liy the wny, I mn several yoars
older   than   ho   gives 1110 credit  fur
being) yot who I trust will yot bo
brought,   by   the   simple   woopoh  of
truth and historic fuct, to submit to
tliu truths hu now so persistently disclaims.     When  1 first read his "loud
resounding" sentences heavy with ses-
mtipedtdia, I .questioned if my limited
Knowledge   gathered   iu less than   n '
score of years should venture to expose itself tu such reproaches as were
defiantly    hurled    pell-moll   against
Bishop   nnd    Arohdtmcon,   hut   nny
momentary fear wns quieted hy tlio
remembrance that mountains hm! before now heaved in labor without producing anything unusual.   I shnll nuw
proceed tu examine Air. Watson's nu-
thoritie-i.      Still)ngfhlet   is   mnde   lo
declare the alleged succession thruugh
Hiitue  to  be as muddy as tlie Tiber
I am nut aware the English Church
attempts   to   prove' her succession
through tlie Ruruaii Church. In Stubs'
"Regisintm Sacrum Angliuainnn," Ihe
nnino uf   every English  bishop from
St.  Augustine tu onr own lime, dale
of consecration, and also tho mimes
uf the  bishops by whom  he was consecrated, is to be found.    Augustine
derived his succession, not from Romo,
but frum the apostles, through Vigil-
ins, bishop nf Aries, nnd the Asiatic
bishops.    But the apostolic ministry
waa in Britain before Augustine landod
there.     Tertullian (A. D. 200) speaks
of "tliose British districts hitherto inaccessible to  the Romans, but subjugated to Christ."   Origan (240) states,
•■tho power of Gud the Saviour is even
with    those    who   livo   in   Britain.''
Euaebius (3-10) says, "That sumo of
the iipoatlea should cross tlie ocean to
the isles culled Britannic, I no longer
think   to   be   the  work of  a man."
Thcudoret (423) confirms this, mnking
mention of St. Paul bringing salvation
hi the isles of lhe ocean.
Tnere can bo no reasonable doubt
then that the British Church wns
founded in the apostolic age. lt hnd
the Word, nnd the three-fold ministry,
bishops, priests, and deacons, When
Augustine landed in Britain, A, B.
500, he fuund n church fully organised   with   nn archbishop and seven
op
biahops.   The names are all on record.     ,..*., ,  .

without grace, clergy without 11 calling,
and a church without cohesion."
I will now adduce the opinions of
n fuw hishnps esteemed for their orthodoxy, nt "least, as highly ns Bishop
lloatlly. Archbishop Omtiirier, 1518:
"When (he npostles found godly men,
ready to preach Cud's word, thoy laid
their hands upun them and gave
them lhe Holy Ghost. This was the
consecration and orders of the apostles whereby they mado bishops and
priests, and this shall continue in the
church unto tho world's end. Any
other ceremony cometh of man's policy and is not. commanded by God's
word." Archbishop Whitgift, 1544:
"Tho principle of episcopacy is of
Divine institution, tho truo and only
scriptural mode of church government,
any other fnrm is a mere modern invent]':)]] fiiuuded in the wilfulness of
man." Bishop Jewell: "In tho
church aro divers orders of ministers,
some deacons, sumo preubyters, and
others bishops, and," quoting St. Cyprian (A. B. 260), "There is but uno
episcopacy, and each bishop hath n
perfect anil entire share iu it." Wheat-
ly, 17W: "Thero were three distinct
orders set apart to the ministry by llio
apostles. The powoi* of ordination is
appropriated lo thuso wo nuw call
bishops. B'or 1500 years wu challenge you lo produce onu instance of
a valid ordination by presbyters."
Bishop of Winchester, 1872. "The
church's iipu4uliciiy results from its
being built uu the foundation of the
apostles, KiiVernetl and ministered to
by clergy deriving their succession
from the apostles." The book of common prayer: "It is evidout to nli men
reading tho holy scriptures and ancient; authors, that from tho apostles'
time there have been these three orders of ministers in Christ's church,
bishops,   priests,   and  deacons, uu
mail shall he accounted a lawful liish
op, priest, or deacon in the Church of
England except he hath had
formerly episcopal consecration, or ordination.'1 Bishop of Colorado, 1858:
"Do you ask mo how we may bo suro
of 11 ministry of "unbroken succession" from tho apostles, holding and
handing down thoir commission from
Christ'/ I answer, just as you are sure
this Bihlo has come down to us, "a
tree copy" of the origtnnl manuscripts,
writtiiil by ihe inspired pen of the
npostles. This Holy Bible, and this
ministerial commission, have been
transmitted by the sume hands. They
havu botli been guarded by that vigilance uf tho church, in all ages, which
warrants tho confidence that is now,
and ever has been entertained by the
faithful in the authenticity of that
book wo call the Bible." JolmCalviu;
"The episcopate itself had its appointments from God." Philip Memncthnn,
one of the most distinguished of the
continental reformers, said: "I wmild
Gud it lay iu mo tu restore the
government uf bishups,"
The burden uf proof lie~» upon thoso,
wlio.iieuyiuy ihis Apostolic succession,
assert that there has been a break, to
show ichere aud -token thnt break took
place. Mr. Watson asserts there are
"many vitiating Haws in the chain
of descent." Ho has had an opportunity to point them out. How far he
has succeeded, you and yuur readers
can judge. But ho thinks he has at
least one point iu his favor, viz,, the

Roman Churches were alike, but not in
discipline. The fonuer kept Easier
nccording to tho usage of the Asiatic
Church, evidently proving its origin
from Asia; the rite lif baptism was
deferred to the eighth dny. Augustine recognized the British bisl-upa*
indeod, we shuuld lie much surprised
if he had failed to recognize tliose
whoso episcopal ollice hrd heen centuries before acknowledged by the
churoh throughout tbe civilized ivurld,
when Ebtiriiu, bishop of York, ttusti-
t ut US, bishop of London, and Add*
phus, bishop of Lincoln, were present
at the council of Aries, August 1, A.D.
814, and attached their signatures to
lhe canons there enacted, British
bishups ni tended ibe council of Snr:
dicn, A. D. U4T, and nlso that of
Ai'iuiinuin, A. D. 3(J0, when three
unly of the British bishops consented
to accept llio allowance offered by the
Emperor Oonstautius to defray tlieir
expenses, A synod of British Christians was held at Yeriilnui iit 420 I ii
oppose the Palngian horusy, and in
A. D. 305, St. Albau, Britain's protu-
uiartyr, after boing tortured, was beheaded for iho Christian faith, Thus
it is evident lhat the church wns fully
established in Britain, and from a
source entirely independent nf the
Roman Church, nearly 500 yours beforo that church sent thither its emissaries.
What is tho value now, I ask, of
Mr. Watson's quotation from StilHug-
tleet about the "muddy Tiber of Romish tradition," or what bearing ban the
statement that in the 15th century
thero weru four popes, or that 13 times
does succession come (to thc Roman
Church) through schisms in the popedom, or Bishop Taylor's nffirmation
that, "Tlie fathers were deceived in
their account of tradition,'' to do with
this question? I did not undertake
to defend tlio Roman orders, or vindicate the claims of the papal throne,
nr to verify the value of tradition.
Whnt then, in the name of common
sense, I repeat, has all his disordered
reasoning to do with tho question under discussion, viz., tbe apofttolioity of
the Anglican Church?
It certainly is a 'Miuge assumption"
of an "unwise advotinto" of a weak
cause tn introduce as an authority in
this matter Chilliugworth, whose religion was first that of tho Church of
Kngland, thon that uf the Roman
Catholics, thou the religion of tho
Puritans, and finally tliat of the So-
einiaiiB who denied the Divinity uf
Christ. (Jf the good and learned
Bishop Poarson, I would say, Requies-
cat in pace; but oh! how is it possible
when ho is mado to say such dreadful
things by our champion. And good
old Eusebius too! lie had no way of
knowing who the bishops of the several churches were, St, Paul having
left no succession lists!! Eusebius
had no archives to go by? Indeed!!!
Well, Mr. Editor, if Mr. Watson can
get a copy of Eusobius1 Ecclesiastical
History, and open nt chapter 37 of
Book III., I will guarantee, on the
authority of an "artless boy," that lie
will thero find a list of !10 bishops of
Jerusalem, the* last, Narcissus, being
contemporary wiih Eusebius himself,
who found tho catalogue iu the archives of tho Church of Jerusalem and
transferred it to his own pnpor. The
succession iu tho churches of Antiocli,
nnd Rome, and also in tlmt of Alexandria, beginning with St. Mark and
going down stop by step to his own
timo, is preserved to us by the same
invaluable histurinn. Even pour Bishop Hoadly is brought up to pass muster. Oh yes, well, this is what a
clergyman and one of tlio ablest
writers of this century has said of
him, "Destitute of the excellencies nf
the schools and luading men with
whom he was connected, lio bus sh'jwn
to what tliose (Latitudinalinn) principles really load, namely to a system
of prayer without fervor, sacraments
with Rome.'' Woll, what does it
amount to? In their controversy Rome
tells us slie lias an apostolic commission
from Christ, llnough bis apustlcs. We
answer: "Sohatt iw." And wu follow
this up by saving that we have everything $he ever had in ihe first three
centuries. Whnt she hums as .mui-...
of faith that we do not are lieresits,
and we can tell her the time and place,
when and wliere she adopted tlicm.
Thus our great advantage in tho controversy with Rome must bo manifest
to nl! who understand what tlml con*
Imversy is
Surely 1 have snid enough now to
show the redoubtable (he supplies me
with till the adjectives I need) Mr.
Watson t.f what inferior metal thnt
instrument he brandishes in his "stern
snrijory" is enmposod, by i'.s su harmlessly turning hs edge whon brought
into contact with tlie lough fibre of
fact. I wuuld advise hiin lu hurl it
I in jlatutn Tiberim, his favorite receptacle for confusion and uselessness.
Surely liis eyes must now be open to
the lamentable deficiency in his training, in nt least ecclesiastical history. I
might, with your permission, lill your
columns for the next six months with
matter bearing upon this subject, but
T purpose this shall be my final communication for tlio present. If Mr.
Watson does not yet clearly comprehend the question, and requires further information, I may state that
there is nu unoccupied seat beside the
"artless boy," in Lorne College, where
at her "sen-saw recitations' he could
obtain a good "equipment" for lhe future moulding of bis views upon
Apostolic Succession.—Ybufa truly,
B. MlUHH."
Lome College, May 18th, 1885,
Rom Miml Your Enemies.
Have you enemies'/ Oo straight on
and mind tlicm not. If they block up
your path, walk aiuund them, and do
your duty regardless of their spite.
A man or woman who has uo enemies
is seldom good fur anything; he is
made uf that kind uf material which is
so easily worked that every uno has a
hand in it, A sterling character -one
who thinks for himself, and speaks
what be thinks is always sure to have
enemies. They are us necessary tu
him ns fresh nir; they keep him alive
and active. A celebrated chainclor,
whu was surrounded by enemies, used
to remark, "They nre sparks which, if
you do hot blow, will go out of themselves." Let this be your feeling
whilo endeavoring to livo down the
scandal of tliose who aro bitter against
you. If you stop to dispute, you do
but as they desire, aud open the way
for more abuse. Let tho poor fellows
talk; there will be a renction if you
perform your duty, nnd hundreds who
were once alienated from you will flock
to you and acknowledge their error.

"Why, this newspaper snys an In*
