Vrlday Evening, May SI. law.
The President's Opportunity.
Sir Charles Tupper, the Canadian
finance minister, stated in bis budget speech the other day, that dur
ing the last fifty years the United
States hud exported to Canada $1,-
200,000,000 worth of her products,
and had imported £1,050,000,000
worth of Canadian products. Prom
this it appears that the balance of
trade between the two countries has
been on. our side to the extent of
$150,000,000. It follows, then, if
the lalance-of-trade theory of the
protectionists is correct, that America would lose more than Canada if
the non-intercourse resolutions of
congress should be put in force by
the president When these resolutions were passed we pointed out
that it was a policy which would
punish ourselves as well us the Canadians. It is not the part of a wise
man to hurt himself unnecessarily
to spite his neighbor, even if the
neighbor has behaved badly. Six
months of non-intercourse would be
a greater loss to Americans than
could be made up in many years out
of the fisheries. So far us we can
see, there is only one way of set.
tling this fishery dispute satisfactor
ily and finally, and it would settle
many other questions at the same
time—that is, annexation. Britain
receives absolutely no benefit from
the possession of Canada except the
profits gained by trading with the
people of that country, and even in
the matter of trade the English merchant has to compete in Canada
with tho American merchant and
all others upon equal terms. More-
over, the Canadian tariff, which was
made vigorously protective some
years ago, has just been increased so
that it is now not so much lower
than our own as to make it any
great object to Britain to retain her
sovereignty over Canada. That
sovereignty exists only in name at
the best. The governor-general of
Canada, who represents the imperial
authority, is under distinct instructions to be guided in all matters
which do not affect foreign relations
by the advice of his premier, who
represents the people of Canada.
The Canadians have therefore more
absolute control of their own affairs
now than if the provinces were
states in the American union.
Nevertheless, it is clearly to the interest of the Canadians to enter the
union, and it is clearly our interest
to induce them to do so, if possible.
It is, however, a very delicate question to handle. Canadian statesmen
cannot well propose it, because there
is a very strong sentiment of loyalty
to the British crown throughout the
province*, especially that of Ontario, English statesmen could not
propose it, because from the suggestion would come with very bad
grace. Bnt why should not Minister Phelps be instructed to inquire
of the British government if it is
willing to negotiate for the cession
of all its rights in Canada, provided
the consent of the people of that
country could be obtained) No
doubt such a request would start all
the jingoes in Britain talking like
big Indian chiefs about the empire
on which the sun never sets. Nor
would it at first be received favorably in Canada. The province of
Ontario, at least, whioh is at present
more populous and influential than
all the other* put together, is strongly in favor of the British connection, and there is a strong sentiment
of loyalty abroad in the othor provinces. It would, therefore, lie years
before any definite result could be
expected; but common sense must
triumph over imagination in the
end, and the great advantages to be
obtained by the union would become
more and more clear to the Canadians the longer the question was
discussed. It seems to be tho manifest destiny of the British provinces
in America to become states in the
American union, and if so, the sooner the better for all concerned. Such
A consummation can only be hoped
for, however, as the result of long
and free discussion of the subject,
and that discussion must bo based
on a motion made by one nf the
parties in interest. The United
States is the only party which can
make it. Here is an opportunity
for Mr, Cleveland to immortalise
himself by taking tho first step towards bringing about the addition
•f another magnificent empire to
our present enormous territory, and
thus making the United States of
America the most powerful as well
as the most prosperous nation the
world has ever seen.—iVeto York

Ottawa, May 20.—In the commons
to-day the loyalists had prepared a
motion to commit parliament to an endorsement of the governor general's
welcome home from the west. Small,
of Toronto, nioved that the house take
a recess in order to give the members
an opportunity to take part in the reception to the governor general. Mr.
Blake took objection. The ministerialists received thia with jeers, but it
waa sufficient to kill the motion.

motion in favor of permitting theMan-
itoba legislature to charter railway
lines to the boundary. Tupper, in a
vigorous speech, opposed the motion.
He said tho agitation in Manitoba
avainst the disallowance policy wu
solely in the interests of the Northern
Pacific Railway company. The time
had come for the administration to
ohooso between the prejudices of a
section of the community and the interests of tho whole of Canada.
LAN8D0WNE HOME.
Ottawa, May 26.—The governor
?;eneral and Lady Lausdowno arrived
rem Toronto at 5:30 o'clock this afternoon. They had received an enthusiastic welcome all along the route,and
the demonstration at Ottawa was the
grandest ever seen in the oity. The
route wu along Queen, Wellington,
Bank, Spark>,and Elgin streets to Oar-
tier Square. The procession wu
headed by the bicycle club and an escort of 300 mounted citizens. Six
brass bands were distributed through
the procession. A very large number
of vehicles and private citizens followed. There was an enormous concourse in the square, estimates varying from 15,030 to 20,000 persons.
The address of welcome felicitated the
governor general on the regard and
esteem in which he is held in Ottawa,
referred to the progress tho city has
made during his term of office, and
expressed the devotion of tho city to
tho queen. - It contained no reference
to O'Brien. After the address was
read Father Dawson read a jubilee
ode. The governor general, thanking
the citizens for their magnificent welcome, said: "Of myself you have
spoken in terms which I feel reelect
the good will which exists between us
rather than my own desert.. 1 mu
afraid, however, that even upon this
assumption I cannot entirely accuu.it
for the extraordinary reception which
we havo encountered at tho handa of
your people. We have often returned
to your city after tours of various duration in the country, and wu have al
ways done so quietly; I niipjit aim >t
suy without attracting oliscrvatioii und
with no other greeting tinn friendly
salutation from any passing acquaintance whom we happened to meet on
our way to Oovornment Hoiibc. Now,
sir, how aro we to account for thia exceptional and unusual display of your
confidence and good will? I have mado
inquiries and endeavored to arrive It
some explanation of tho facts, and I
am given to understand the explanation is this: That since wo uw you
last an invasion ol Canada lias taken
place, nnd that invasion has not been
successful. I learn thnt the invasion
wu in some respects romnrkabl*. The
invading force was net numerically
strong. It made up, however, in intrepidity for its weakness in numbers.
It appears, moreover, to hav* ttken at
the outset ol its operations a step
whioh is, I believe, not unusual with
skilled strategists, that is, possession
of the telegraph wires, by whioh in-
formation of the most startling '
ter wu liberally poured into th* oountry. I understand th* object of th*
invasion wu to put to flight a certain
high official of state, of whom, unless
I misunderstand what hu taken place
on this occuicn, th* ptopl* of Ottawa
are not particularly anxious to get rid
just st present. Well, sir, there •»•
pears to have been one weak point in
the arrangements. We all know that
one of the most important departments
in military serrico is that whioh is
known as the intelligence department.
In this cue the invaders wen completely misled by their intelligence
department."
The governor-general doled with an
expression of his thanks. At the conclusion of the address the children
sang "God Save the Queen" and other
choruses, and vut crowds cheered,
themselves hoarse.' While the vice;
regal party was leaving they started up
"John Brown's Body," and after singing a verse or two diverted into "We
will hang O'Brien on a sour apple
tree." The governor-general's hones
were unharnessed by the crowd of
young men belonging chiefly to the
Foot'-Guards and 43rd Kifles and taken
out at a trot to Rideau Hall.

and South America contemplate a system of branch banks throughout this

Tariff Changes.
The tariff changes  which were
announced a few weeks ago in this
journal seem to have been as unex
pocted   as they were far-reaching,
nnd  the  ofl'ect of them on some
blanches of trade and industry is
somewhat similar to that which followed tin' sudden rise in the Oa.na-
. ilian Pacific Railway rates to this
coast ii short time ugo. Tho changes
made arc both numerous and swooping, and especially in iron there has
I men nn enormous advance.   It is
said   that many persons have been
forced to cancel contracts and withdraw from engagements in consequent!!! of tho advanco, and to a considerable extent some of our most
important industries will experience
u good deal of embarrassment   The
advance in iron touches all sorts of
manufactories, for it will be felt in
the production of the very machinery required for manufacturing purposes.   It will especially touch the
agriculturists, who  will find their
implements advancing in price without any corresponding advance in
the price of the products of the
farm.    In the east the margin of
profit on farming operations has of
late become so small that the industry is in many sections extremely
precarious, and a slight advance in
the expenses of operating the establishment may sweep away tho margin altogether.     Sir Charles Tup
per's theory is that the effect of this
large increase in iron duties will be
the establishment of vast iron nnd
steel  works  in Canada.    With a
view to this end he has taken the
duty off anthracite coal, which has
not  yet  been  found anywhere in
eastern Canada.   The establishment
of iron and steel works on an extensive scale would undoubtedly be of
great   benefit  to the country: but
these results are yet somewhat uncertain, and after all it may be questioned whether wo are not paying
too large a figure for them.   It is
bad policy to keep tinkering at the
customs tariff from year to year.
The  tariff should  be as securely
fixed  as any other law, subject to
change only when change was plainly demanded by new circumstances.
Every alteration of the tariff disturbs trade more or less throughout
the   whole country, and trade disturbances are always dangerous and
sometimes sweepingly disastrous.
The Provincial capital.
Our esteemed cotemporary of the
Inland Sentinel thinks the capital
of British Columbia is surely destined eventually to drift to Kamloops.    Admitting that the great
bulk of population is now near the
coast, he thinks the future increase
is certain to be more rapid in the
interior, and that the convenience
of the masses will demand the removal of the capital.    We are not
sure  that self-interest has not led
our cotemporary to mingle the pro
ducts of his imagination with those
of reason.   If the interior is to be
the seat of the provincial capital,
we   know   of  no place possessing
stronger claims than Kamloops; but
if over circumstances should demand
suoh a ohange, the time is certainly
very remote.   During the past ten
years  the  increase of   population
has been relatively much more rapid
near the coast than it has been in
the interior.    Victoria has now a
white population of about 9,000,
Nanaimo  has about 2,500, Vancouver has about 3,000, and Westminster has probably over 3,000.
At  the present time Westminster
district (including its two cities) has
a white population probably larger
than all the rest of the mainland,
and   nearly  as large as the entire
population  of   Vancouver  Island.
And the' population of this district
at the present moment is increasing
more rapidly than the population of
any other part of tho province.   If
we were to say that Westminster
district contained one-third of the
white population of British Columbia, that Vancouver Island contained
another third, and that the remaining third could be found elsewhere
on the mainland, we should, not be
very far astray.   The development
of quarts mining, which is not now
far off, will materially aid in at
trading population to the interior,
but the rate of increase there is not
likely to outrun the rate here.  This
bring* us to tho conclusion that when
the capital is moved it will be moved
to Westminster district, and probably  to  Westminster city as the
most accessible  and most central
point in the province.    The time
for removal may not be us far off as
some people suppose.   The present
situation of the capital is found to
be extremely inconvenient to the
great bulk of the people, and the
inconvenience of it is growing more
apparent with the development of
the mainland.   If a census of the
country were taken it would be Been
how unjust is our present system of
representation by which about one-
third of tho population get* nearly
a* many rote* in the house as the
remaining two-thirds.   Representation by population is a watchword
that  will some day swcop out of
existence many ol the existing inequalities, and  then  the mainland
will gut baok the capital that it once
lost through the selfishness and in-
trigueof Viotoria.

mRECTOHS' ANNUAL REPORT.
ClEXTLKMKX—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending ::lst Alnrcli, 1887,
we lieg to state that it will be on litter
impossibility to run the hospital free of
dent on the grant just voted hy tho government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has been attentive in his
duties anil repoi ts a large increnso in the
number of patients admitted duringtlic
yoar,'shewiiig also that wo have received
patieuts from all parts of tho province.
There are a number of iricurnbloa in
this hospital, some of whom were broiiejit
from Victoria hospital years ago. 'J. ho
sum of $1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, tiic last
few years. The Iloaril think, therefore,
that some of these incurables should be
shipped back to Victoria.
A great number of improvements have
beon made during tho year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-honso built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; tho
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expend-
inure.
The hospital has been filled to it3
utmost capacity during the wholo year.
Tho Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous substriptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the congregations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist nnd
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladies and-
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, hooks,
papers etc:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.
E. Woods, Major, Lennle, H. Elliot, W.

The surgeon's report is appended hereto, and gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for each resident patient in the hospital, which includes the disbursements on out-ilnnr
paticnts, is 07 cents.

To the Member* of the Board of Directors:
GENTLEMEN.-I have the honor to

Although the number of deaths Is large
the short number of days In I lie Hospital
of a largo proportion of them shows that
they came In In a hopeless condition.

The numberof incurables now In the
Hospital is twelve [121. Tills large number requiring to he taken care ot from
year to year renders it im possible to make
a number of desirable Improvements In
the building, owing lo the limbed stippl,
of funds.   1 have Introduced the table e
of
residences to show the people of H-iitisli
Columbia that they all ought to take an
Interest In helping on this Institution,
which Is Increasing In usefulness every
year, ns maybe seen by comparing the
number of indoor patients of the previous
year —scventy-llvo j7r»)—with Ibis year-
one hundred nnd lhree(I03).
Wo still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from the building. The
floors and walls have been Improved and
the new wash-room Is a great addition to
the comfort of the place.
I have great pleasure In thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for presents of clothes, till! lin.-n. pit-lures, books
nnd papers. Again I have to thank the
steward, Mr. Chillies Itlgby, for hlseon-
slant attention to Hie t-leanlltiess nf tbe
hulldlngand his kindness and attention

dwmhlte    Ts Ri PEARSON) LIFE INSURANCE.
Tbo Success of. the System rounded on
gtatlstJonf Facts.
Out experience of human life has
taught us that every man is sure to
die some time or other and that the
insurable or productive money value of
his life beyond the age of 100 years ia
considerable, and beyond the age of 75
is hardly worth mentioning.
The insurable part of a man's life
lies almost wholly between the ages of
20 and 75, if, by reason of its usefulness to some other individual, it is insurable at all.
As to the individual man, if we know
nothing about him but his age, nothing
can be more uncertain than when he will
die. If we know about his health, we
■ can better guest; if about his parentage, still better; hut, after all, our
guess will be nothing like a certainty.
After all possible caro in selecting good risks, and avoiding fraud,
the best risk may prove the worst
Yet there are institutions that not
only guess like good prophets, but
fairly insure or answer the purpose of
a wise providence, to mitigate the saddest calamity that befalls man. .They
wiUagreeto pay a man's heirs or dependents, to whom it Is to be presumed
his life is both valuable and dear,
a certain sum of money if he
dios before reaching a certain age.
Surely the utility of the business to
the heirs of tbe man whose fate it is to
die before he can have provided against
their poverty or starvation is not to be
denied. The utmost care of his health,
or the best possible physicians,
cannot make it certain that he will
,not die before that provision can be
made.
Even on a very crude, and only half
soientiflo basis, life insurance, for the
last 200 years, has been of vast benefit
to society, and has been, in spite of
frequent failures, constantly improving
in its method ud popularity.
The success of life insurance is
founded on the facts, observed by careful statisticians, that out of a large
number of men ot a given age a
certain number will die within one
year. As, for example, out of 10,000
inoo, all aged 27, very nearly eighty
will be sure to die within one year, and
out of 10,000 at the age of 60 twice as
many.
If they were all apparently in good
health at the beginning of the year the
mortality would be considerably less.
But, as an average fact, the probability
of dying within one year is determined
very nearly by the figures of a mortality- table, and for all practical pur-
Iposes the mortality tables now in com-
*nion use substantially agree.
Ths most commonly used ii founded
ion the experience of the seventeen
[largest offices in England, and was
^prepared in 1813. It has since been
[confirmed by a larger experience of
■English offices as well as American.
I As to the risk or probability of dying,
■if a company acquires at a moderate
■expense—and it ought to be much
■more moderate than it often is— a well
[selected and sufficient number of risks,
veil spread as to locality, it may
iiu'ely trust either of the mortality "
Itables.
A company consisting of too few
Intembers needs to have its own life infrared.   It must be subject to failure
unless.guarantee capital supplies the
Mace of numbers till it has acquired
hem.—[Elinor Wright in Contempor-
.ry Review.

A GREAT GEORGIA FRUIT FARM.
Encouragement for   Enterprising  Gardeners and Farmers;
Twenty years ago nearly everybody
in Macon aud Houston counties regarded Hr. S. H. Bumph as a crank upon the fruit question.
They argued that there was no de-
maud for fruits and trees grown in the
South, that the Yankee had already a
monopoly upon that business. Also
that but few varieties could be grown
here; thitt the growing of apples and
raspberries, especially, was an exploded
ides, and that nobody but a northern
man could success!ufly conduct a nursery.
Thesoand a thousand other objections were urged by every one, and it
was with great difficulty that Mr.
Bumph, then quite a young man, and
with but limited moans, could get a
piece of land upon which to lay the
foundation for an immenso business,
and out of whioh ho is to-day making a
fortune. Nothing daunted, however,
he established his fruit farm and nursery, known to-day in every State and
market iu the United States,
He gets the first red raspberries
every season into Jacksonville, Savannah, New York and Boston, and he realizes fully 50 cent per quart for the
yield from a five-acre patch.
Ho has propagated a variety of peach
believed to be the finest in every particular grown in the South, if not in
America, which he christened "El-
berta," in honor of her who, in his
young manhood, plighted her love and
fate with his, and rejoices with him in
prosperty and sympathizes in adversity,
as only a devoted and loving wife can
do.
He has a large number of Elbertts,
and last season the crop paid him an
average of 11 cents per peach in New
York and Boston. He ships car loads
of peaches of other varieties every season that pay satisfactory prices, and he
yearly increases hit acreage, whioh already numbers several hundred.
Apples are grown to perfection, and
every week in tho year he fills orders
for this delightful fruit, sweetened by
Georgia suns aud on Georgia lauds.
But it is said that his nursery it the
biggest thing in the South. Suffice it
to say, at present, last week he sold
85,000 trees, to bo shipped to different
States the coming fall.
His home is one of the loveliest in
the country, surrounded by fruits and
flowers of every vorioty and speoies, and
is visited annually by hundreds of travellers and excursionists who pass this
way and can stop oft' for it period.—

Dress or American Diplomat. Abroad.
Ever since the declaration of American independence the representatives of
the United States abroad have been
much troubled by the question of
dress.
Franklin is known to hove appeared
at the court ot Louis XVI. in plain
clothes;" but it is now well known,"
says Mr. Schuyler, "that this Wat not
owing to any love of simplicity on the
port of Franklin, but merely to the
bet that on a certain occasion hit pres.
enoe was to much desired at oourt,
when he had no clothes in which he
considered it fit to appear, that he wot
requested to come in whatever he happened to be wearing at the 'moment
Many American Ministers wished to
make of this quite exceptional incident
a formal precedent   '
"Mr. John Qnincy Adams had already pointed out, as long ago as 1809,
that the formalities of court presentations ought not, by sensible men, to be
either valued or despised; and in 1828,
Mr. Adams recommended the use of a
particular uniform, of which he gave a
formal description as well as an engraved plate. But in 1853, Ministers
were recommended by the Foreign Department to appear in the simple dress
of an Amerioan citizen; the exarnpio of
Dr. Franklin being inappropriately
cited in support of the practice.
"Tho effect of the new order was to
subject the American Ministers in
various capitals to slights and rebuffs.
"At Stockholm, the King wot willing to receive Mr. Shroeder in plain
dress for business purposes, but would
not waive for any olie 'the etiquette ot
his house.'
"Mr. Vrooni, at Berlin, waa told that
'his Mojesty would not consider an
appearance before him without costuma
rts respeotful.'
"Mr. Buchanan was excluded from
the diplomutio tribune at the opening
of Parliament because he refused to
wear court dress; and Sir Edward Oust
told him that 'he hoped he would not
appear at oourt in the dress he wore
upon the street;' whereupon he presented himself in evening dress, with
a sword and cooked hat"
She Took Them In Her Arms.
The Lombard and South Street line
has bad the renown of carrying more
market peoplo and children than any
other in this oity.
There has been a perceptible falling'
off in tho latter within tbe last two
weeks, dne to the order that conductors
must collect full fare, five cents, from
all passengers except babies in arms,
A lady and her two children boarded
one of the little green cars for the Park
yesterday. The little ones, apparently
two and four years, mounted the seats
and each, on its knees, was soon peering from an open window. The conductor came in and the mother handed
him a five cent piece.
"Fifteen cents," said the conductor.
"What tor?" asked the,
"Five cents, for each of the children.
Just read that card up there." .       "'
The lady looked up and road the
{iriuted notice to the conductor to ool-
oct full fore from all excopt children in
arms.
In an instant the woman picked up
the little ones and placed one on each
arm with an air of defiance to tho conductor, who rang his gong for one and
retreated to the platform to the intense
delight of the other passengers.—[Phil-'

deal of his time on the road, much to
the annoyance of hit wife.
He was at home a few days ago,
bnt told her that he would have to

"I've got'to go on this trip. It it

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LI3CZTED.)
OWTfitf lirtik Ot JANUARY, 1887,
the CouniBUir Newspaper and
Printing Concern' was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
ef Now Westminster, to bo known as the
"British Columbian, Printing Co.,
Liniitcd." The concern )iub been for
ijcnrly a year owned, and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria iutd Vancouver. Tho object of
tlio new company is to continue the publication of tho Rkiti.sh Columbian newspaper and carry on a gencrai printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
■those whose individual interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of tin-Mainland.'- There will be no
slackening of tha energy hitherto displayed In the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will dovote itself
to tho advancement of euch schemes as
may be considered in the public Interest;
Tho wmcGrii is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been tnttcii over by Mr. T, R.
Pearson, who will continue, to carry it on
in his own name nnd for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a dally newspaper
should he maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that It Is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian ho judged on its own merits and
supported only so long, as Its policy is
onconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all ac-
connts duo the concern .mist bo settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

This, Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot bo misled as to their eon-
tracts.
Its statements to the publicoan be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how expended.
Its position Isnscertui tied annually from
n detailed valuation In which every Hem
of liability Is Included,
lis progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon nn equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders ore not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plnn of distribution.

A Starved Camp.—For some time
a parly of men have been engaged laying tbe foundation of a now light
house on Saturna Maud,on the northeast coast of Vanoouver Island. The
str. Skidegate was furnishing them
with supplies, but while at Victoria
she took fire and was not ublo to proceed to the island. Provisions in the
camp ran out, and tho men were
obliged to put themselves on short allowance. One of them was fortunate
enough to spy a door, and after a vigorous chase the animal was captured
and a supply.of fresh meat secured.

meot at Winnipeg next month. The
Rev, G. 0. Patterson, M.A., Beaver-
ton, Ont., who iB to arrive this week,
was appointed to Chilliwhack; and
Rev. David Reid to Richmond and
Ladners. Mr. Reid went by the str.
Alice yesterday afternoon to Richmond. The presbytery agreed to petition the senate and commons at Ottawa to adopt some measures to abate
the shameful Sabbath desecration by
the C.P.R.        .
Acknowledgments . — Tho total
amount handed in to tho Columbian
to be remitted to Nanaimo for the relief of sufferers by the explosion is
(560.60. With the exception of $5
which came yesterday from a widow of
Ferny Coombe (and which we handed
to the Bank of British Columbia), this
sum has boen forwarded to Nanaimo
through the bank, and its receipt duly
acknowledged by the secretary of tho
relief fund. The sums Bent through
tho Columbian were as follows: Hyack
Fire Co., (100; Methodist collections,
(162; Presbyterian collections, 8152.-
50; Reformed Episcopal collections,
(56; Roman Catholio collections, $47;
Baptist collections, (38. In acknowledging tho receipts of these sums Dr.
Praeger, secretary of the Nanaimo relief fund, says: "We cannot sufficiently express our gratitude to all tlioso
friends who are making such noble
exertions on our behalf.'1
Another Insurance Comtany.—
By reference to our advertising columns it will be observed thnt the City
of London Insurance company of London, England, has decided upon opening agencies in this province as well as
throughout the Northwest. Mr. G.
W. Girdlestone, as the general agent
for this province, has been fortunate
in securing active live agents for this
excellent company. Mr. Croasduile
will represent the City of London iu
Viotoria; Mr. R. G. Tatlow in Vancouver, and Mr. H. V. Edmunds in
Westminster. The capital of tho company is large, being (10,000,000, making it one of the strongest in the country. All losses will be adjusted in
this country without reference to the
home board or office, a matter insurers
should take into consideration. We
bespeak for this new candidate in tho
insurance line a share of public favors..

A Good Retort.—A subscriber
brought to our office on Monday what
he called a National Policy hen's egg.
Us weight was 31 ounces, length 7£
inches, and circumference Oj inches"
Will some of our grit friends beat this
with their jug-handled free trade
hens?—Stratford Times. That egu,
Mr. Timet, clearly exemplifies ono of
the certain dangerous and pernicious
results of protection. It is an over-
production, and we will venture to say
that the heu after laying that egg experienced a season of depression bordering on a complete collapse. Free
trade, sir, is a system of normal and
continuous production, regulated by
the law of demand nnd supply and a
fair exchange of products. That bin
egg atrained the aourco or power of
production of tlio lion; it glutted tho

Antl • Monopoly Motion lie-
rented.
By Associated Press.
Ottawa, May 27.—Tho debate on
the motion for a suspension of the
government's policy of disallowing
local railway acts of the Manitoba!!
legislature was continued in the
house of commons until 3:30 o'clock
this morning, when the motion won
lost by 48 majority. Several liberals
voted with the government The
Canadian Pacific will, thorofore, continue to'enjoy a monopoly of railway
freights in Manitoba unless tho pco-
file of tho province take the matter
nto their own hands.
Thomas Robinson, Farnham Centre,
P. Q., writes: "I havo bcenamioted with
rheumatism for the last ten yuan, nnd
have tried many remedies without any
relief. I got a bottle of Dr. Thomas'
Ecleotrlo Oil, and found it gavo instant
relief, and sues then have had not attack.
I Would recommend It to all."

The Sound Railway.—The contract for the construction of tho road
bod of the west coast company from
Seattle to Snohomish has been' let to
Earl & Co., who gave bonds to have it
completed by the 15th of next September, bp which time it is expected
the first ship-load of iron for this road
will arrive. The Seattle J?.-I. says
surveys aro being pushed forward by
the company, whioh expects soon to ha
able to let the, contract for the construction of another section of roadbed, If Mr. Canfield succeeds in ob-
taiuinu the capital for which he is negotiating, and begins construction on
his road, we may see seme lively rivalry, r desa the two companies unite
their interests. It would seem that
Canfield rather has the advantage in
that he holds a right of way from congress to bridge the rivers on the route
and has the greater part of the distance surveyed, while the new company has nover been before congress
and has its line located but Utile this
side of Snohomish. But tho new
company is exhibiting a spirit of wideawake enterprise and push in marked
contrast to tho past policy of the Can-
field company, aud which seems to be
waking the latter company a little up.
It is of little or no concern to us who
builds this rood, but wo want to see
it built. The route of the road in
any case will be regulated to a great
extent by the connections that will
be allowed to bo made with the Canadian Pacific. The road will doubtless
be, by whomsoever built, a shore line
from Soattle to Westminster, and perhaps a branch from a point in this
county to Fort Hope.—Whatcom
Reveille.	
Amos lludgin, Toronto, writes: "I
have been a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past six years. All tlio remedies
tried were useless, until Northrop & Lyman's Vegotable Discovery and Dyspeptic
Cure was brought under my notice. I have
used two bottles with the best results,
and can with confidence recommend li
to those afflicted in like manner,"
Kongli on Lunsdowne.
Syracuse, May 19.—John McCarthy, an undertaker in this city, who
is something of a character, paid for
the insertion in the papers to-day of
un announcement that in case Wm.
O'Brien is injured in Canada he will
guarantee to give the slayer of Lsns-
dowuo (100 a year for ten years.
This money will be given in a mortgage on McCarthy's property. Me-
Cafthy also says that he will furnish a
fuc simile of the Grant coffin to lay
Lansdowne in in case of his death.
A. Hamilton, Warkworth, writes:
"For weeks I was troubled with a swelled ankle, which caused mo much pain
and annoyance. Mr. Maybee, of this
place, recommended Dr. Thomas' Eclec-
trio Oil for it. I tried it, and before one
bottle was used I was cured. It is an
article of great valne." Beware of Electric or Electron Oils, as they are imitations of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil,
