Wo regret tlmt tho local liouso
litis atfiiiii given the go-by to tho
.Woman Suffrage question; but tlio
very way in which this hns been
dono shows more distinctly than
over that it is just a matter of time
when the measure will be curried,
nnd that that time is not far olf.
Progress rapid and stoady has been
made. The necessary "education"
is going on as quickly as could
reasonably be expected. The ond
will be bye-and-bye. Mr. Mowat,
while personally approving of the
measure, holds that the time is not
yet, and that it is well to hasten
slowly. Tf the time is not yet, it is
not very fur ofl, and tho friends of
the measure can afford to wait and
work with perfect calmness, but nt
the sania time with perfect confidence.—Toronto Glob's.

NUMBER 23
The Mormon women of Salt Lake
Oity held a large meeting Sunday
to protest against Federal interference with their affairs. They
upheld polygamy, denounced the
law suppressing it, asserted that
women had been outraged in the
courts in being compelled to answer
certain questions, declared female
suffrage in the territory a vested
right, donied that their votes were
controlled by aught savo their own
free wills, and called upon tho wives
and mothers of the United States
to assist thc women of Utah in
their battle for tlieir rights. This
would be ridiculous wero it not too
sad. The devilish ingenuity of the
Mormon priesthood makes tho victims of their scheme its most enthusiastic supporters, The religious
sentiment, naturally strong in woman, which elsewhere elevates and
refines her character, in Mortnon-
dotn becomes a chain to bind her
in physical, mental and moral servitude. With somo exceptions there
is no doubt that tho Mormon women
are profoundly impressed with the
merits of tho system imposed upon
them, antl fanatically devoted to the
church. Once convinced of tho
truth of tho Mormon revelation
they are boyond tlie reacli of argument or evon a consideration of
self interest. Superstition surrounds them with its most direful
terrors. The black veil which shuts
out the Mormon woman from the
glories of tho heavenly city can be
lifted by a husband's hand alone.
Unquestioning trust nnd obedience
are the koys of salvation. We can
therefore well bolieve that Sunday's
protest was mado in good faith,
How can thoso be helped, or brought
to help themselves, who feel no need
of relief 1 tThese women are not
guilty of wrong intent. They are
merely deluded victims of a soul-
destroying superstition. Legislation
and judicial proceedings may servo
to suppress in a measure overt acts
in violation of the law, but their
best eflects will bo iu opening the
eyes of the Mormons, both men and
women, to tho supremacy of tho
law and tho government. When
a course of vigorous discipline has
broken down faith in the powor of
the priesthood to control temporal
affairs, the way will be open to discredit their pretensions to spiritual
authority. Tho main thing is to
mako tho Mormon peoplo comprehend how they aro imposed upon,
Now that it is disposed to meet
this extraordinary disease witli extraordinary remedies, can the government find no way of supplementing tho effect of its legal measures
upon the Mormon mind, by argu
ments addressed to intelligence and
self-interest 1—S, F, Bulletin.
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
On Monday Mr. Cowan introduced the quostion of abolishing
tolls on the Oariboo wagon road.
After somo discussion tho question
was laid ovor until the estimates
would be brought down. Mr. Cunningham moved for tho closing of
saloons on Sunday. The speaker
referred to the petitions that had
been sent to the house asking for
such legislation, and he hoped thc
law in this respect would be made
the same as that of Ontario, requiring saloons to close from 7 p. in,
on Saturday till G a. m. on Monday.
—Mr. Martin suid he would givo
the honorable gentlemen all credit
for sincerity, but if tho power in
this respeot rested with municipalities it would never do to apply it
to the outlying mainland districts.
He believed that all saloonB should
be cloBcd during the progress of
religious services, bnt to render compulsory their so remaining betweon
.the .lours mentioned in the resolution would not he thought apply
with equal advantago to all parts
of tho province. In outlying places
farmers and other woro in the habit
of traveling miles to attend church
on Sundays, and wero accustomed
afterwards to repair to ssloons to
have a glass it might be and meet
in converso with friends whom the
occasion had brought together, and
it would, from an over sensitive
notion of the proprieties, be a positive hardship to deprive them of
the use of a place of gathering
where was furnished the only opportunity of meeting during the week.
The resolution proposed legislation
for teetotallers and the house had
no more right to legislate in favor
of one class than another. Unless
tho resolution was amended restricting it to church hours he should oppose it.—Hon, Mr, Robson said if
tho mover would introduce a bill
having the object of the resolution
he would give it his hearty support,
but at present to support it would
be to give it the appearance of a
government measure, which he
thought was not what the exigencies of tho question at present demanded. He was confident that
the majority engaged in the liquor
trade could see that in tlie interest
of their trades and families it was
expedient to close saloons and taverns during church hours, to give
thoso keeping thom a rest or an opportunity of attending divine servico without prejudice to their
business from being closed while
other saloons were allowed to remain
open. It was also a question
whether the public interest would
not be also conserved by the closing
of saloons during church hours.
The objection of the member for
Yale to tho effect that persons after
attending church would not be able
to go and spend the rest of the
Sabbath day and night in a carousal
in saloons, suggested a paradox, and
he thought if such were the tendency it would be the best thing
that could be done for them to close
up the saloons during the time
suggested. If brought in as a private bill he would support the
measure.—Mr, Raybould said the
request coming as it did from some
700 persons was deserving of consideration. Ho differed from the
member for Yale (Mr. Martin)
that this was a teetotal question;
it was a deeply moral and social
one. It would be unwise to endeavor to compel thoso to attend
church who did not wish to, but it
was the duty of tho houso to pro-
toct thoso who could not protect
themselves, In Ireland a Sunday
closing act had worked well. The
law should be thc same here in this
respect, not only with regard to
liquor but to the sale of everything
else on Sunday. People with a little providence could supply themselves with all necessaries on the
preceding day, for all wanted Sabbath rest. Public sentiment wns
growing, and the time was coming
when the house would feel itself
bound to take action on this important question.—Hon. Mr. Robson
asked that the resolution be withdrawn, as in its present shape, if
pressed to a division, it might cause
somo who might favor it in another
form to vote against it—Mr. Cunningham was willing if nothin? better could be done at present. Ail
he hoped was that it would not have
the effect that had resulted from the
movement of last year—in the matter being quietly shelved. He
would, howover, bring it in a bill or
induce some other member to do so.
The remarks of the member for Yale
forcibly reminded him of a little
incident that had occurred to himself on the previous day. He had
heard a very excellent discourse by
the Rov, Mr. Gordon at tho Presbyterian church, aud loft tho sacred
building greatly edified iu company
with two friends. Tho conversation
naturally turned upon the religious
precepts that had been placed before them and the felicitous language
in which they hnd been clothed.
With these thoughts uppermost in
their mind, passing along Govornment street they came to a saloon,
whereupon ono of tho gentlemen in
his company said "Cunningham,
come in aud have a nip!" (Laughter.) He refused and walked off
to his hotel, "while my late companion," continued tho speaker, "turned
into the saloon and had a nip. Now,
if all the saloons had beeu closed
they would have carried home with
them the lesson of what thoy had
heard, but as it was, it was all swept
away in a nipl" Resolution withdrawn.

After a Judge.
If thero is any suoh tiling; as thorough enforcement of prohibition Iowa
moans to s'-uure it. From tho firs: the
people have shown nu extraordinary
determination. The latest step in that
direction was tho adoption by the
house of representatives at Dei Moines
of the majority report favoring tho impeachment of Judge Hayes, of Davenport, for affording aid and comfort to
the opponents of the law. That he
did afford suoh aid und comfort no one
can intelligently doubt, but a good
many have done tho same at one time
or another in the United States by
substantially the snmo judicial action.
Hitherto the right of a judge to hold a
statute to be unconstitutional, null,
and void hns boen assumed to be unlimited, excopt by tho tothera of tho
conscience.— Chicago Inter-Ocean.

Our local cotemporary seems almost to have despaired of defeating
the provincial government by lawful means, and advocates the mob
and lynching as the only hope of
his party. Wo are afraid hope
long deferred lias made the heart of
our esteemed ootemporary sick. It
is u fortunate circumstance tlmt lie
has not the sympathy of the electors, a great majority of whom are
of opinion tlmt tho policy of this
government is in the true interest
of the province. The elections will
Boon be upon us, and we shall be
greatly surprised if the opinions of
•the Church-st. organ ave found to
lie sustained by the country,
Mr, Cunningham's resolution on
the subject of prohibiting tbe sale
of liquor on Sunday met with very
little encouragement in the houso.
From the tone of some of the remarks made it is evident that there
are members of the house profound
ly ignorant of the question upon
which legislation is sought. While
public sentiment has been moving
forward on the question of temperance in this province, members
of the houso seem to have clung to
tlie same ideas that prevailed in
other civilized communities 50 years
ago. There is much need of new
blood and new ideas in the legislature, and the peoplo will soon have
an opportunity of bringing about
such changes aa may be for the
country's best interests.
According to the statement
brought down to the house, the
excess of liabilities over assets for
the first six months of this year
was $129,404.23. But notwithstanding this ollicial statement the
Victoria Times continues to assert
that the liabilities exceed the assets
by §479,985.28. The Times gets
this result, apparently, by adding
together all the deficits tliat have
existed at that period for a number
of years and putting them forward
as a truo statement of tho balance
sheet as it existed at tho end of
the year. It seems to forget that
the appropriations for each year
were made sufficient to cover any
over expenditure that might havo
occurred during the year preceding.
The Times does not concern itself
as much i'or tho truth, apparently,
as it does about making a black
mark for the government, and thus
it is led often into very conapicous
absurdities.
On Wednesday we referred briefly
to a report of a speech delivered by
Senator Mclnnes in which it was
stated that the municipal councils
of Victoria and Nanaimo were
forced to provide food for the starving people. The official report of
the speech hus since come to hand,
nnd it bears a somewhat different
character. The senator does say
that the commercial depression in
this province is greater than it has
been for twelve years (for which
we think there is no warrant), but
his statement with respect to municipal assistance to starving men
refers only to the Chinese, He
said; "The corporations of Victoria
and New Westminster have had
under consideration tho raising of
funds to supply them [the Ohinese]
with the actual necessaries of life,
und keep them from starvation."
This is perfectly true, and we are
glad to do the senator tho justice
of making tho correction which the
more accurate report of his speech
gives us.
High License or Prohibition.
An esteemed correspondent in another column seems to have interpreted to suit his own wishes certain passages of an article which
appeared   in   Wednesday's  paper,
We have not changed our opinion
on prohibition to the extent intimated by our correspondent.   The
Scott act, which is the only act prohibiting the sale of liquor in Canada,
has   been  tried  in many enstern
counties, and in a majority of cases
it does not seem to have prevented
a very large liquor traffic.   Until
the act can be made more eflective,
by amending it and providing the
machinery necessary for its enforcement, we are not sure that it would
be wise to adopt it anywhere.   In
this sense we have to i cfertain degree changed our opinions, because
we could not resist the evidence
which has lately been presented of
the partial failure of tlie Scott act
in the east.   But we have not abandoned the principle of prohibition, |
and wo beliove it ought to be thc
ultimate aim of temperance effort.
Nearly all laws are prohibitory, and
we are not able to sympathize with
those persons who assail prohibition
of thc liquor traffic because it interferes with "personal liberty" and
cannot see tliat the same principle
woultl lead them to oppose oilier
prohibitory laws of which all inen
approve. What we said on Wednesday was : "If prohibition can be
secured and enforced, let us havo
prohibition; but if it cannot, let us
make the most of tho restrictions
within our reach." That is, if wo
can't got a full loaf, let us sec that
we get half a loaf at least. One of
the restrictions within our reach is
high license, and nlthougli we do
not despair of prohibition, we be-'
Hove it is best to accept in tlie mean
time every enactment the tendency
of which is to curtail the evil effects
of this terrible traflic. It may strike
our correspondent "Watchman" as
somewhat singular that another cot-
respondent, "G. K.," whose letter
appears in litis issue, takes a different view altogether of the article
referred to,
Tlie Chinese Question.
In tho Toronto Globe of a lato date
we find the following letlur, sinned hy
"Thomas Cooke, of British Columbia."
The letter says: '-'Believing that there
in a great peril impending ovor the
future <if Canada, I think it ia my
duty tn explain it. It ia understood
by all intelligent readers that thu Canadian Pacific Railway Company has
made application to tho British govern-
mont through the agency of Sir John
Macdonald, for a large line of Bteam-
•ships to connect Hong-Kong with Liverpool. Now remember thnt there
are four hundred millions of Mongol
inns liviug behind Hong-Kong, you
also must know that wa cannot build
a trado sufficient to employ a large lino
of -steamships without bringing over
sovoral hundred of tlie Mongolians on
oach steamship. Wo all know what a
curse those Chmeae are on tho Pacifii
CoaBt. Do you want to aee this curse
spread all otfit the Dominion of Canada? If you do not now ii tho lime
for you to speak out. Une year lience
will bo too lute. In June next thero
may be a largo line of steamships in
running ordor connecting with Hong-
Kong. Now is the time for you to
work SB you never have worked beforo
Wo want you to gut a petition signed
by all tho voters in your neighborhood
and forward it to Ottawa, praying for
the Dominion government to puss a
law preventing the Pacific Steamship
Company, or any other ships or heals,
from landing the Chinese emigrants
on Canadian soil. We do not want
any amendments to tlio Chinese Emi-
gratton Bill. But wo want a hill to
prevent importing Chinese into Cati-
adu at all. I now give wal'ning I11 lhe
Dominion government that tho first
ship load of Chineso emigrants landed
by the Canada Steamship Company
will -be tho signal for the uprising ot
every white man in British Columbia
to expel all the Chinese out of the
province, and thai will bo before thc
tirst of August next."

The Hatchery. — Already about
1,250,000 young fish hnve been turned
out of tho Fraser River hatchery and
placed in Pitt River, Stave Rivor and
tho Coquitlam. This morning about
800,000 will be tuken to Harrison Luke,
and to-morrow about 700,000 more will
leave for Cowichan and Nanaimo.
There will bo left about 250,000 for
future distribution. There were something over 4,000,000 oggs placed in tho
hatchery lust fall, from which about
11,000,000 fish have beeu secured, giving 75 per cent,, which is an excellent
result. Mr. Mowatt, superintendent
of tho Witchery, informs ub that the
young fry are looking exceedingly well.
Sliuiitly Exaggerated—Mr. Stum-
bli informs us that the Chinese are so
numerous in Nuw Westminster that
during thu day tboy block tho principal streets so that white residents have
to take others. Mr. Sticubli and his
family, wheu passing through that oity
last week on their way from Port
Jtfaody heru, could not pass along the
sidewalk because uf tho Chinamen,
and woro compelled to walk in the
middle of the street.*— Blaine Journal.
Mr. Stiuubli must have seen vory double when hu was in this city. There
are uot probably more than 800 Chinameii in this city altogether, and the
Siioubli atory is a very pointless piece
uf nonsinBe.
Canine Sagacity.— There was quite
a cirouB on Columbia st., Thursday
morniug between a Chinaman and a
vory small but meddlesome dog of tho
cur breed. The dog began barking
vigorously at the celestial, whose kicks
and gesticulations were just what suited the canine's notion of good fun.
Whenever John turned to go, the cur
would run in and nip His heel, but invariably kept beyond reach of the
Mongolian hands or feet. The pic-nic
was kept up until nearly half the
street appearud to witness the laughable spectacle, and the dog finally
took himself off voluntarily because
of fatigue in his barking arrangement.
It is said this little fellow never mo*
leBts a white man, and rarely permits
n pigtail to escape without an expression of disgust.
Slightly Mixed.—There is a real
estate firm at Coal Harbor known as
Pitt and Picken. The other day the
firm received a letter addressed to
"Pick it Pickings!" This reminds us
of the grent Chicago firm of Gray &
Lunt, somo years ngo one of the most
extensive pork packers in the west.
Nearly hnlf the letters received by this
firm wero addressed ''Lay A Grunt!"
Persons wbo wero residents of this
city in 1802 and the years immediately
subsequent will remember the Rev.
Mr. Sheepshanks, who was a very
much respected minister of tho Church
of England. One day n man came
up to him on the wharf with this salutation: "Mr. Muttonlegs, I believe?"
Well, not exactly," replied the rev,
gentleman with perfect guod naturo,
"but you're very near it; my nnme is
Sheepshanks."
A Good Showing.—The report of
Mr. F, N. Gisborne, superintendent
of Dominion telegraphs, contains sume
very intetesting items relating to the
telegraph service in British-Columbia,
It is well known that this sorvico has
hitherto been a very costly one to the
government. In thu year ending 80th
June, 1870, tiie excess of expenditure
over rcvonno waa 834,680; in 1880 it
was S27.50O; in 1881, 817,813; in
1882, $7,702; in 1883, 83,912; in 1834,
§5,407. During last fiscal year the
deficit which had been running for so
many years was changed to a surplus,
and thu excess of revenue over expenditure for that year is $1,209. This is
a very gratifying exhibit, and allows
both judicious mnnngement on tho
part of Mr. Wilson, superintendent of
tho British Columbia lines, and thnt
tliu business in this province is steadily
increasing. The numbor of paid mes-
sagos taken by the telegraph lines in
this province during tho last fiscal yoar
was 70,79", and the total ro venue was
835,055.
Bank of B. C—A general meeting
of the proprietors of the Bank of British Columbia was held on tho 10th
ult,, nt the Cannon-street hotel, in
London. The report was satisfactory
in the extreme, showing a considerable
increase alike in business and results.
Notwithstanding the depression which
had been hanging over the commerce
of the world during the last six months,
prejudicially affecting the exports of
grain and other products, the profits
woro greater than ovor before. In
recognition of the services of the staff
toward this favorablo showing, the
proprietors granted thom a bonus of
10 per cent, upon their salaries, A
dividend uf 893,000 was declared at
tho rate of 0 por cent, per annum, and
a bonus of 2 per cent, in addition. It
was announced that the 2,000 new
shares (850 pnid} recently offered to
thc shareholders at 810 premium, were
fully applied for and allotted accordingly. The premium on theso shares,
amounting to 820,000, lias been car*
riod to reserve fund, which now
amounts to 8400,000.—Colonist,
The Senator on nis Ear.—Not
long ago Senator Mclnnes brought forward a motion in tho senate declaring
that British Columbia ought to be represented in the Duminiou government,
Hon. Mr. Plumb remarked: "Tlie
hon. gentleman himsolf is not now a
representative of British Columbia,"
whereupon Senator Mclnnes said: "I
may take this opportunity, since tho
question lias been raised, of giving that
statement a most emphatic denial, aud
any person who, from this out, repeats
the statement is simply telling un untruth. I nm sb much a representative
of the province of British Coiumbin today as I ever was, and us much as auy
member of this or the other house from
Britisli Columbia, nnd it is a piece of
malicious vindictivenesa on the part uf
some would-be representatives of that
province—a piece of petty spito nnd
malice on the part of some politicians
and newspapers for my independent
course that I am singled out as a representative thnt has abandoned hii
province, and was, therefore, not in a
position to represent the views of tho
people. Both of my colleagues iu this
house have been nbsout much lunger
from their proviuce thnn I havo been,
and not only absent from the province
but absent from the Dominion. I
simply left there last year for the session and did not return, in consequence
of an effort to give my two sons the
benefit of a university odueatuin—
something that I am sorry to say cannot yet be done in my province. My
absence is only temporary; I intend to
go back to British Columbia after the
session and I intend to work for that
pruvinco andher interests as faithfully
as if I had never been an hour absent,
notwithstanding anything that quibbling politicians or their organs may
say to the contrary, und I repeat it
thnt any person iu this house or out of
this house who charges me again with
having abandoned my provinco and
says that I um uot n true representative uf thnt provinco is simply stating
that which is not true,"
C. A. Livingstone, I'lattsvillc, says:
"I have much pleasure in recommending
Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, from having

some time. In my own ease I will say
for it that it is the best preparation I

Pkiest's Valley, Mar. 11.— We
have had a very fino winter. Ou the
27th February I plucked some wild
flowers, and spring birds had returned
before thut date. It would be diflicult
to find anywhere a climate botter than
that of Okanagan. Already the exodus to Granite Creek has begun, and
our settlement will aoun have lost a
great many of its people. A party of
5 started a week ago on a prospecting
tour to Kettle River, via Cherry
Creek. One of the party of 3 who
went there last fall returned recently.
As the snow began to fall earlier than
Imd been anticipated, they were unable
to prospect, but they succeeded in getting a number of excellent furs. Stock
wintered well, and havo all beou on
the ranges for some time. Some stockmen did not feed any hay during tho
winter, the grass un their fenced
ranges being sufficient.

A Serious Upset.—Borne person
carelessly left a boiler ou tho road
near the junction of Edinburgh and
Richard sts., which caused a very serious accident ou Thursday aftornoon.
Mrs, J. W. Hennessy and Miss McLean were driving along Edinburgh st.
when the horse took fright at the
boiler and became unmanageable,
finally landing in ths ditch with tho
buggy nnd its occupants, Both the
ladies wore thrown against tbe fence
and badly eut about the face and otherwise, nnd the horse, which landed in
deep fwatcr, could not be extricated
until the harness was cut. This is,
perhaps, fortunate, because if tlio horse
had been free to kiuk no one knows
what the result might hnvo boen. Mr.
Janes, who fortunately happened to
bo near, took thu Indies in his stage to
thu Holbrook House, where they wore
cared for, nnd thc wounds dressed by
Dr. Cooper. Miss McLean is not yot
ablo lo seo out of her oyes on nccount
of tho bruises roceivud. Persons hnve
no right to leave such obstructions ns
boilers und engines on the streets, nnd
it ihould not be permitted,
A fact which oven political economists
aro apt to forgot is that a manufacturer's
rate of profit is not the only essential
clement to succesa; the aggregate profit
at the ond of tlio year ia Of far greater
importance, and this In most cases is
grontar out of a low rato of profit than
out of a high rate, because of tiio in*
ercuBud business which tho tower price
gives rise to. It was on this principle
thnt Messrs. Tuckett k Sou acted iu Introducing their now famous "Myrtle
Navy" tobacco, and to this principle
they have ever since adhered. This is
one of thc reasons why tho poople of
Canada aro minikin-.; tho best tobacco
which can he produced, at u cheaper
-price than any other people can buy a
similnr article
from Surrey.
{Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Tho weather of this Surrey nf ours
is peculiar. Here we woro, lulled into
a hopo that bright spring was nn baud,
even thu grass growing and leaves
starting, when all at oncu it seems ns
if wu were transported buck into old
Canada again, tho land of snow-banks
and blizzards. Tho other night wu
were visited by a good solid snow
storm, leaving nearly a foot of snow
on the ground, a goud ileal nf which
remains at tlio time of writing. We
expect this is the last expiring effort
of old Boreas who is angry at his
slight hold on this favored district.
As predicted in a former lotter, Mr.
Huck's business is rapidly increasing.
Not having room in his former quarters he has been forced to find others
more commodious, nnd iB at preseut
busily occupied in building and fitting
up a store of respectable dimensions
near his house for the purpose, Mr.
David Brown, of Hall's Prairie, who
broke his leg some time ngu, ia rapidly
improving and nt Inst accounts wus
ablo to ait up. The Mud Bay Debating Society nnd the Clover Valley Debating Society aro both doing good
work. Mr. Duncan Rowan and Mr.
Jns, MacPheo have left for the summer, but wo hope tu aee their smiling
faces amongst us again next winter.
There is still a good deal of talk about
the mill, some thinking the rato nf
interest too high, others that n mill
should be self-sustaining und need no
bonus, while again others think it a
capital measure nnd nro very enthusiastic over it. Tho settlement in
Surrey whioh needs a post ollice the
most is that between tho Yalo mnd und
tho Frasor river, commonly culled the
Paris settlement, Tin iv nre a large
number of settlers (here whose nearest
post oflico is Clover Valley, and that
is nearly five miles off. The most of
them go to Now Westminster in preference. It would be a good move, nnd
one that would receive the support of
nearly all in Surrey, if some of tliose
interested would petition the officials
for an office somewhere about there,
Mr. C, K. Higgins, Beainsville, writesi
"A customer who tried a bottle of Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
says it is the bost thing lie ever used; to
quote hiB own words, 'It just seemed to
touch the Bpot affected,' About a year
ago he had an attack of bilious fever,
and was afraid ho was in for nnother,
when I recommended tins medicine with
suoh happy results,"
his (Scoullur's) employ. The next fnct
is that the work was in such a fair condition as to be about two-thirds done at
the dnte he mentions. The next startling facts arc that Thos, Kennedy is a
son of Jas, Kennedy, the superintendent,
und that J. Ji. Felix ia well known ju
this city; tho next serious fact is that 1
am the son of Thomas Cunningham]
Now, Mr. Kditor, theae are the complaints which Scoullar makes nbout the
work, and these are the things that will
have to be altered before the new jail
will he complete. Scoullar also states
that Kennedy and I arc apprentices,
which is nhout as truthful as the rest of
his letter, as both Kennedy and I havu
beeu at the trade nearly live years and
have had advantages that few have had.
However, sir, I think your readers card
very little ahout the ngc and parentage
of all or any of tlie men in this chop:
the question which concerns thom most
is whether the charge mnde hy Scoullar
in regard to the work being scamped is
true or false. Has he succeeded iu pointing out a single instanoo iu which tlie
work is faulty? 1 think, sir, that any
fair minded person who has carefully
read Ids letter will agree with trie in saying that he bus not. Mr, Scoullar acknowledges having been challenged by
Mr, Kennedy to make an investigation,
as tho result nf which wc have his (Seoul-
lars) bare assertion that the work was
not done according to thc spec iii cat ions.
This is in exact keeping with the rest
of his rot. If he has anything to say
with regard to tho work, that he can
prove, why doesn't he Hpit it out ami
stop his assertions? Mr. Scoullar asks.if
any other shops tendered for the contract on tho jail. I will answer hid by
saying that the shops in Victoria did
tender, nnd what is more, tbe contractor
told us thnt our bid was §150 less thnn
he expocted. That is how wc obtained
the Bub -contract, and if Mr. Scoullar
was not asked to tender for it the only
mason that suggests itself to my you in-
tv I, mind ia that the contractor doubted
eitiier Seon liar's ability or inclination to
do work as it should he done. Now, Mr.
Kditor, I will say, in conclusion, that I
have labored under the disadvantage of
having to write my own letter, which I
doubt if Scoullar did; not because (as
we apprentices say) bis head is not long
enough (at least tlio lower portion of it)
but because of the quality nf its contents.   Yours truly,
HENRY CVNNIXOflAM,
Mr. Hansen's Reply,
Editor Columbia^.—I fear that both
you and your subscribers are getting
tired of the controversy carried on between tbe tinners of this eity. I would
not ask tho privilege of answering Scoullar only that he has gone out of his way
to attack me, He came out first as vir-
tuously indignant ut the. violation of the
independence of parliament law', but under cover of that makes a business attack
ou the liouso where I am working and
the gentlemen who arc my 8hopnmtes. I
gave him tho opportunity of pointing out
where thc bad work wus dono aud making proof of his charge, but he has uot
been able to do that, and n very good
reason for it; neither ho nor any other
man can point nut any defect in either
tho material used or work done by this
shop on the new jail. Tho trouble with
Scoullar is that he is not getting as much
work as ho used to, and has to seek new
fields for the display of hia abilities. 1
acknowledge that 1 did ouco work for
Scoullar. He put me at taking up nnd
repairing water pipe nt the hospital
wliich he had hut recently put down. 1
concluded that this was not tho aliop for
ine and left the shebang, a step whieh 1
shall never regret, for I am now associated with gentlemen who do nnt misrepresent facts or scamp their work,
Seoullnr says 1 have no education.
My reply is that I spout nearly eight
years of my life at school, can read,
write, figure, and iHiderstaud enough of
mensuration to make my patterns and
draw the lines for anything f have to lay
out. When Seoullnr is aide to do as
much, he will bs in a position to refer to
my education. 1 would merely state iu
conclusion that there is only one apprentice iu this shop, Sam Cunningham; thc
other men referred to served a regular
apprenticeship to their trade, are good
mechanics and competent plumbers,which
Seoullnr is not. Had lie known anything nf plumbing he would never havo
referred to the new jail at all, The trouble with Scoullar J3 he has too much
time on hia hands, "Satan finds mischief for idle hands" is aa truo now aa it
wns when the great English tinker wrote
it.
Now, Mr. Editor, I hope you will pardon me for taking such liberties with
your time and space, I am a hard-working man. You see mc packing iron pipe
and tools through the streets daily. I
am not ashamed of this, for I am honestly
paid and the pipe ia all honestly obtained.
One word more to Mr, Scoullar: You
have shown to thc people of this town
that you are neither a gentleman nor a
plumber and that you are entirely dis*
3ualificd to pass judgment on the work
one at tho new jail.' You enre nothiug
for honest government. You have done
your level bost to mnke a point-ngainst
me nud the shop 1 work in, aud have
utterly failed. Yonr place is not nt tho
hend of decent mechanics. The people
of this city will sec thruugh you now and
he constrained to regard you uot a very
honorable or truthful man.-—Affectionately yOUI'fl, I'CTKll H.WSKS,
cau do is to elect, it possible, us representatives to these houses, meu in
thorough sympathy with tbet most advanced views on the temperance question, and able aud willing to co-operate
with their constituents for tho best furtherance of those views.
In a short address, at the opening of
the Christian Temperance reading room
l'» this city a few weeks since, the Rev.
Mr. Fraser. of Victoria, threw out a
suggestion wliich is worthy of the serious consideration of temperance workers,
via., that local organizations of duly
qualified eleetors, favorable to temper-
nuco reform, should bo established in
every electoral district and polling division throughout the province. This is a
good practical suggestion which should
be promptly acted upon. If the temperance people wish to be a power in politics, and to exert that influence over
legislation which is their right, and may
bo their privilege, it will only be by the
adoption of some such measure ns is
here indicated,
The differences hinted at above, which
might divide temperance workers if not
harmonized, may, I think, he stated
about as follows: While probably all can
agree ns to the main features of the question, some huld the theory that it is best
to advance slowly aud not in the first
instance to press for the highest possible
constitutional reform; others again believe that the correct theory ia to aim
high from the Btart and urge, with a
good show of reason, that by this meauB,
although even defeat may be temporarily
encountered, earnest effort is stimulated,
the hearty sympathy of the best temper*
ancs element enlisted, public sentiment
educated, and the much-desired consummation hastened. In a leading article,
Mr. Editor, iu thc last Issue ot your pa
per, under the heading "Provincial License Laws," I find these words: ''If pro-
htbition can be secured and enforced, let
us have prohibition; but if it cannot, let
us make the most of tho restrictions that
are within our reach." This clause, I
take it, properly interpreted and amplified, contains, in a nutshell, the soundest
philosophy, and indicates the truest po-
licy, for the temperance party in this
province. Let us, in the first place,
proceed to work out the question implied in the clause above quoted, and
then go forward in the order indicated.   '
In the course of his address, before referred to, Rev. Mr. Eraser atated that a
grand provincial temperance convention
would bo held at Viotoria (an effort
should he made to have it held at this
city, which is more central) sometime in
May next. Let Christians and temperance workers endeavor to realize their
personal responsibility in this matter and
he prepared to act with discretion and
energy. G. K.

Edison's Latest Improvement*
In the March number of the North
American Edison tells nf n wonderful
improvement he has lately made in
telegraphy. Already it is so far perfected as to bo of practical use, and its
subsequent developments aro likely to
be ns startling and revolutionary as
anything which that remarkable genius
has ever accomplished. There is no
use in trying tu tell in language mor.
or less technical how it is done; the
fuet that it has actually been accomplished is tho great matter, .Shortly,
it amounts to this, that through the
discovery referred to it is nuw possible to throw an olectrio current fully

The Temperance Question.
KluTOK Coi.rMillAX.— There seems to
he a strong uiidcmiiTeiit of determination among temporal! e people generally
throughout the province to make il political Issue uf thc temperance question at
the approaching general elections (the
provincial this year and the Dominion
next). With this object in view, some
common basis cf action must be ascertained nnd agreed upon. This should
not be nu extremely rflfflouH matter; for,
while some minor differences mny exist,
all temperance workers (worthy of the
name) cnu agree heartily on the loading
principles growing out of, nnd inseparable from, tho question-—nnd thorough
and opon diaoiissioii will do much towards hnrinniimng conflicting opinions
on mat ten of detail. Thc points upon
which nil enn agree may ho briefly stated
as follows: (1) Tho liquor tratlic (to wit,
tlie manufacture aud snlo of intoxicating
liquors as a beverage) being an unmitigated and monstrous evil, nothing short
of ultimate and speedy prohibition shall
bo aimed ut. \'2) The temperance causo
must bo well represented at the provincial nud federal parliaments. (3) To this
end, tho least that temperance people
KW8 FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WOW.
Paris, March 3.—M. Pasteur read the
most important paper yet on his inoculation scheme before the Academy of
Sciences on Monday. After relating his
method*; of treatment he said that 350
persons had been inoculated, among them
twelve Americans. In all these cases
the treatment hnd proved successful,
with one exception—namely, tho case of
Louise Pelletier, a girl ten years eld, who
was bitten on October 3 and brought to
the laboratory ou Nove ober f), thirty*
Seven days after the bite. The child was
bitten most terribly in the head, the
dog's tcuth having penetrated almost to
tho girl's brain. He would not have
treated the caso at nll but for the eager
solicitations of thc girl's relatives and
Paris physicians. He related another
case in which a boy was sO horribly bit-
ton ahout tho face that cauterisation was
impossible, yet although three weeks
otpsed the boy recovered. M. Pasteur
here gave statistics of the last six years
in the department of the Seine, showing
that in ItiTSof lOllpersons bitten by dogs
supposed to he mad 21 died of rabies, In
ISTiJ 7(1 were bitten nnd 12 died of rabies;
in 1S80 OS were bitten and 5 died; in
ISSl lol) were bitten and 23 died; in
1882 117 were bitten und 11 died; iu 18S3
45 were bitten and fi died, The average
for the six years waa one death out of
every six bitten.
London, March 4.—Dr, Sohlioman,
whoso original firmans entitled him to
one-third of hia fiuds in Turkey, two-
thirds goiug to tho Sultan, has succeeded
in re-buying tlie Sultan's share. He
promises to give the whole collection to
the Berlin museum.'
Rangoon, Maroh 4,— The Burmese
Crown Prince's son is dead. His army
of 3,000 meu has been dispersed 600 of
them following his brother into the dense
forest in Muntepore. Sitkay, a loyal
Burmese ollicial, hns surprised and killed
Priuc! Moungtliain.
Paris, March 4.— M. Pasteur wants
$400,000 to start a hospital and $10,000
per annum for its support. Prime Min*
istoi- l)c Frecyinet is in favor of the state
granting the latter sum.
Lonuon, March 4.—Earl Roseberry
has instructed Sir Henry Drummond*
Wolff, tho British commissioner in Egypt,
to reject tlio demand of Moukhtar Pasha,
the Turkish commissioner, that an Egyptian army he organized with a large
Turkish element. The British occupation of Kgypt will continue until the
question of fellabeeuan's tenure of laud,
nnd civil and military and flnuholal reforms have been settled,
St. Paul, Mnreh 4.—Hugh Sutherland, president nf the proposed Hudson
Bay railway, passed through St. Paul to-
dny en route for Europe. He snys the
road, which Is to ho 2,10 miles ton, eon-
ue -ting Lake Winnipeg and the Hudson
Bay, will be built at once nud will remain open the year round, Thc now
route will be 400 milea shorter to Liverpool than from Now Vork or Montreal.
San Francisco, March 13,—,The lowest passenger rates yet made during the
railroad war were made by the Atlantic
nnd Pacific rtft'd today on limited tick*
ets. The rates are, to Chicago, $10) to
New York, $31. A change was ulso
made in emigrant tickets. The purchaser i.s allowed a rebate Oil the latter, which
makes she rate to Chicago Sio, and that
to New York $2(1, Tlie steamer SftU
Pablo, which sailed to-day for China
took 1200 Chinese. A large number of
them were aged and indigent, to whom
no return certificates were issued.
Dublin, Mar. 18.—United Ireland,
edited hy William O'Brien and partly
owned by Parnell; Bays thnt Gladstone s
land and home rule schemes arc so close*
Iv knit together nud dependent on each
other that neither can stand alone. In
proof of this United trcUtnd poiuts to the
fact that tho landlords of Ireland whom
'Gladstone proposes to buy out, by tho
very tut'ins of the ex-uropriatiou bill will
he unable to avail themselves of its
enactment until an Irish legislature has
been established nt Dublin to administer
thp bill. Mr. Chamberlain told a friend
that Gladstone's proposal would involve
so complete n separation that It would
be impossible for an English journal
giving any guarantee to landlords and
thnt unless a method was found to
grently reduce the amount of proposed
payment, he (Chamberlain) would not
remain in the cabinet. Chamberlain conferred long and earnestly with Trovclyan
lu tho house of lords this afternoon, and
afterwards privately with Lord Randolph Churchill for nearly au hour. The
<. hen instances aru much commented on
hy quid nunc* lu the lobby. Meanwhile
tbe tension in the cabinet continues.
Neither Chulstono nor Chamberlain appear to be disposed to yield. Mr. Chain
bcilaiu -winbatted Mr, Gladstone's do
fence thnt his proposal would not bring
about separation and that the circumstances, under whicli landlords would
ho guaranteed, would bring uo risk to
England.
fifty feet through thc air from one conductor to nnother, and this can be dune
in such u way as to transmit messages
from and to a railway train when moving, say, nt the rate of forty miles an
hour, with all tho ca.se nnd accuracy
characteristic of ordinary telegraphic
mossugea transmitted from station to
station in the usual way. This can bo
accomplished without deranging or in
any wuy interfering with the ordinary
business being done on the ordinary
wires, and without the operators being
able to tup such messages unless provided with the new apparatus. Tho
messages can be received without difficulty amid ull the noise uud agitation
of a moving train, and continued communication between such a train nnd
all other poiuts in circuit can bo easily
maintained. This new discovery is
ulreiuly in operation on tho Statcii Island Railway, and, according to Mr.
Edison, by this time it must also bo in
use on the Chicago, Milwaukee A* St.
Paul Railroad.
For train despatching it will bo invaluable. At every moment every
train under his jurisdiction will be in
direct communication with tho train
deapatcher. In caso of au overturn the
exact spot of tho occurrence cun be indicated and every train in motion
through the whole district can be
warned, Btupped, or changed in its
route, so ns best to help the injured
one. Shuuld a criminal bo supposed
to havu started by such and such a
train, not only will it be possiblo to
transmit a full description of liis person to the conductor of that moving
train, but to all tho others on tho line,
and should the suspected bo discovered
or caught, notice cun be transmitted to
the next station to havo the necessary
officers ready tu seize him when the
train outers the station. A merchant
will bo ablo to communicate with his
partner who has started on a business
journey, bo as to give him additional
needed information. And vice versa
the travelling partner cun tell what information he may have picked up in
tho curs, which may render a change
uf plan nt headquarters altogether
necessary.
"Despatches," says Edison, "can be
Bent to or from the curs iu either direction, either forward or backward along
the route. The current leaps uver to
and runs along the wires, and whatever train or station may be called,
that train or station will hear the call
and answer it, but others which are
not called will, of course, make no
reply. Two trains passing each other
on tho road will nut materially interrupt communication, because they pass
within a few seconds, and thu telegraphing to and from oach can be
resumed immediately," No extra
wire is needed, unless whon the regular wires diverge greatly from the roadbed. The extent to which the new
discovery can be utilized is simply
marvellous, if indeed we are permitted
in these days to call anything marvellous. Of course for train despatches
it will bo invaluable, but fer everyone
almost who has much occasion to uso
tho telegraph at all it will be alinust
equally so. Think of a newspaper
correspondent collecting his news or
reporting a meeting in one city and
then starling for another engagement
and transmitting directly to the editor's offico nll ho has already secured
while traveling all the while by lightning train! Mr. Edison claims that
ho will soon be able to mnke ships
have direct communication with each
other though separated by miles, and
he hopes also to have railway telephones by which passengers will bo
ablo to talk with thoso at homo just as
is now dono between thousands of
oflices and private residences. Wo
merely add what the inventor snya in
conclusion: "The working of tho invention is not a mutter of uncertainty.
It is already developed aud perfected,
and can be applied anywhere. I have
had it elaborately tested for several
months and it operates equally well in
all weathers.'1 Now, then, what ahull

It would be absurd to suppose that this
or any other medicine of kindred nature
could produce instantaneous effects, For
the thorough removal of Chronic Dyspepsia, Constipation, Livor Complaint,
and other ailments to which it is adapted, its use should be continued some time,
after the chief symptoms are relieved.
That it then eflects complete cures is a
fact established by ample and respectable
evidence.

HENRY T. THMFT.O.M.O.
Surrey, Mareh 1,1880, OnihSi Au Appeal to Ihe Church.
ByTrof. Geo. E. Foster. M.P.
■   i. The idea of the Church.
The Church has always been and
now is looked upon as tho embodiment
vf moral truth and religious lifo in tho
world, lt is to society what conscience
is to tho individual. In it is supposed
to be incarnated tho best known will
of God, and from it to shine forth tho
reflected purity of heaven. In all ages
humanity lias lookod to it as tho sure
antagonist of Evil and the certain ally
of Good. It is to bo the "Salt of tlio
oarth," "a city sot on an hill," and a
"light sliming in the midst of darkness." The Church is to keep itself
free from all compromise with wronc,
und from every alliance with thc "unfruitful works of darkness."
The pulpit is God's watch-tower iu
the Church, in which He places His
•workmen, aud "woo" is upon them if
they neglect to look out for danger, or
raise the cry of warning. The public
warning should be as prompt as the
evil ia prevalent, as sturdy and uncompromising as the evil is pressing, as
clearly defined ns truth itself, and ub
fearleBB as God, whose means and instrument it is. No human suffering
should appeal to it in vain; no cry of
the slave Bhould enll to it without
■peody answer; no victim of systematic
pillage and cruelty ahould demand help
and be met with refusal.
8< The idea of the Dram-shops.
Thore has existed for centuries in
our country an organized system of
evil, sustained by Christian statesmen,
carried on by nominally Christian people, and preying upon tlie homes nnd
fortunes of Christian society. We
know it us the liquor system, and its
machinory is, (a) thu brewery and distillery where alcoholic liquors are
made; (b) the dram-shops, whore alcoholic liquors are vended; and (c) the
statutes of our Christian country which
foster, protect and perpetuate the system. The sole motive which underlies
and gives deadly energy to this "organized Bystom" is avarice. The brewer and distiller make liquors, not to
honor God, to help mankind, or adorn
our civilization, but simply aud solely
to make money and gratify thoir desire
for gain. The ' 'gains of thu craft" is
the master motive. Such ii the idea
of the dramshop.
3. The outcome of Ihe "Dram-shops,
The results of this organized system
of evil are as dark and dreudful as its
parentage would indicate. Out from
the dram-shop come no factors of progress and refinement. By it no noble
impulse has ever been imparted to our
manhood, no grand purpose implanted
in our people, no brightness of hope or
comfort of happiness given to our
homes, no purity lent tu society, and
no moral support bestowed upon the
churches.
And tho dram-shop, be it bar oE palace hotel, counter of wholesale merchant, or rude table in the vilest den,
is only the mouthpiece and instrument
of the brewery and distillery; the placo
wliere the demon-like potency of their
poisons ia brought into contnet with
the humanity whoso happiness aud lift
arc to bo coined into gold,
jj. Wtere the evils have been wrought.
Not in China, not in India, nut in
Egypt. No, buL this "organized systom of evil" nasties to-day, and lias for
yeai'B, under tho vory caves of tlio
Church of God, suns itself in the full
light of the holy altars, lifts its brazen
front from the seats of the sanctuary,
and goes forth to "Mt and destroy,"
with tho very sanction of our powerful
nnd collective Christianity nt its back.
Every day children are robbed of
parental love uud care and thrust out
to a sad heritage of vice and shame;
and the drink-shop is the cause.
Every day youth jb baulked of its
promises, lured to its ruin, and plunged into destruction; and yet the drink-
shop goes on with its congenial work.
Every day women are burdened with
care and anguish, broken down with
neglect  and cruelty, and robbed of
the helping hand from their spiritual
home. How their faith has often beeu
staggered as refusal met tlieir plea, or
apathy chilled their confidence! Ven,
tho Church is oxpected to antagonize
the liquor traffic, ub she was to strike
slavery, Alas! that she should bo so
slow to respond to the general expectancy.
(b) Because her principles demand it.
There is the organized liquor Bystom
—brewery, distillery and dram-shop.
Opporite is the church. Between them
stand the masses uf mankind. Tho
mission of the dram-shop jb to destroy.
It goes about its work with awful energy. No inducement of tomptation
is left unused. Every contrivance that
ingenuity can devise is brought to
bear. Every class is invited. There
are "dives'' for the low, doiiB for the
their loved ones; but the drink-shop
still holds its sway.
Every day criminals are graduated,
vice turned loose to its prey, and innocent blood sprinkled on our pavements;
but the fatal drink-shop is not disturbed.
And all thia time the Christian
Church prays and preaches, sings and
rejoices, collects money and sends out
missionaries to the heathen, and allows
the ten thousand drink-shops to kill and
destroy free white men and women fo.
whom Christ died.
Yes, allotos; for no drink-shop could
exist in this country a single month if
ihe. united Chi li'-- Gtiitrch forbad it, '
6. Tlie Church and the Dram-shop
are not m     d helpers.
Bet' "'-r-ch and the dram
shop there is nothing in common. The
dram-ahop appeals to lust and appetite;
the Church to reason the the highor
soul, The dram-shop strips innocence
and purity from its prospective victim;
the Churoh seeks to clothe its members
therein. Tbe dram-shop ridicules piety,
jests with things holy, sneers ut woman's virtue, and scoffs at God; the
Church inculcates reverence and regard
for all these. The dram-shop fits its
frequenters for a futuro of misery,
while ths Church implants in its
children -the sure faith of a blessed
immortality. There is aa wide a gulf
between the dram-shop and the Church
ai between Hell and Heaven.
Tbe Church complains of small attendance at its services; tho dram-shop
has stolen its auditors. The Church
bewails the material and sensual spirit
of the times; tho dram-shop ia the
school of materialism and sensuality.
The Church laments the fow conversions it makes; the dram-shop is
thronged with disciples, Surely there
is no reason why the Church Bhould
deal tenderly with its rival and deadliest enemy.
6, Wliy tlie Church should destroy the
Dram-sliop.
(a) Because it in expected of her.
No people are more surprised than
the drink-sellers themselves that the
Churches do not denounce and dethrone them, The liquor traflic ox-
pacts tho Church to be its enemy, and
though it may, when .it ean, joyfully
accept a holy alliance, it secretly despises the spirit whioh can prompt it.
The traffic is inherently bad, and the
trafticera instinctively feel it. The
Church professes to hold tho truth and
sell it not; and between what is inherently bad and what is vitally good
no alliance is looked for.
The victims ond sufferers from the
trafflo expect the aid of the Churches,
The great Head of the Church turn
od a deaf ear to no suffering; Hero
buked wrong alike in individual and
class. The duty and traditions of the
Churoh are in the line of help. And
io all over the country eager faces and
anxious hearts are waiting for thn aid
of the Church.
The opponents of tho trafflo expect
the aid of the Church.
Molt of these are of the Church—individual members, and with a longing
which la indescribable they wait for
depraved, game rooms for tho young,
music for nil, retiring rooms for tho
timid, luxuries for the rich, and tho
restless, untiring activity of half a million of men plying every art to capture
the masses. And u sure percentage of
all they capture are Kopelessly ruined,
The church 1ms oars to hear and eyes
to see, and knows tliat tlmdcstructkn
pitilessly wasteth by noonday and
stalketh abroad at midnight. Her
mission is to sun!. How can she allow
tho terrible remorseless jaws of this
destroyer to open and shut, to kill and
destroy hourly, daily, yearly!
Tho liquor system goet into partnership with Christian municipalities and
cities nud the country. "Lot me kill
and destroy," it snys, "and I will give
you a percentage of tho profits."
The church sees this unholy nil hio •_■•■,
watches tho destruction, knows that
each dollar is so much purity, virtue,
manhood, happiness and eternal promise, changed into viloness, vice and
eternal misery. How can she allow
the unholly alliance to go on hourly,
daily, yearly, and calmly behold the
awful sacrifice ?
(o) Because expediency demands it.
There is the dram-shop; here is tho
Church,
Aro the air and surroundings of the
dram-shop helpful to thu Church; do
tho bright lights, the pool, the billiards,
and the whisky invito to tbo Church
or away from it; do the jests, baths,
ribaldry, lust, and drunkenness of tlio
dram-shop impart aid and devotion to
the prayer and class-meetings?
The Church builds up tbo worship
of God; tho dram-shop continually
draws away therefrom. The Church
lifts men heavenwards; the dram-shop
draws mon downward. The Churoh
magnifies the home, purities society,
and saves the soul; the dram-shop
rends the homo in sunder, degrades
society, and ruins tho soul.
(il) As the Dram-shop succeeds, ihe
Church fails,
Yet the wonderful spectacle is presented in this Christian laud, of the
Church and dram-shop dwelling aido
by side in almost perfect peace, aud,
lest the Church should bo accused of
taking any unfair advantage, it leagues
its rival to the state, and arms it for
ita terrible work.
Self-preservation is tho first law of
naturo, and outside of all "compulsion
of principle," the Church should take
the weapons away from tlie hands of
its deadliest rival.
The drum-shops nevor fail of frequenters however scant the prayer
meeting attendance; and every dramshop frequenter is one taken from tho
prospective membership of the Church.
Sensuality and gross indiffeuonoe arc
tho mountain difficulties of tho Ohuroh
to-day; drum shops aro the hot-houses
of sensuality aud indifference. Show
one tippler who is a good church worker, and 10,000 can bo shown who ridicule church work. Brewers, distillers,
saloon-keepers and drinkers may often
furnish the money; they never fur
nisli tho brains, or sanctified heart of
the Church.
(e) For the sake of her good name.
While Bhuddists, Chinese, Mohammedans, Sandwich Islanders, Cherokee chiefs, and Mormons forbid the
uso of intoxicants, and refuse to sanction their sale, it is reserved for
Christian countries to erect this '-worst
of all villanies" into a vast system of
organized ruin and plunder-ruining
while it plunders, and plundering
while it ruins—to coin the blood of
their own into revenue, thus, in fact,
living upon their own gigantic disgrace.
Tho Hindoo mother sacrificed hor child
to tho Ganges, and the idolator of old
gave his son into the burning arms of
Moloch; but religions feeling prompted
tho slaughter. In a country where
that God is worshipped who "will have
mercy and not sacrifice," hundreds of
thousands of precious lives nro every
year sacrificed on the altar of this unhallowed traffic. The motive is not a
religious ono, it is simply the base demand of appetite and greed, And yot
a country of Christian Churches which
allows these altars to smoke with human sacrifices, and protects tho priesthood which slays them, aends out missionaries to the Buddista antl the Chi-

(/) Because she has the power,
Thero is no moro powerful organization in our country to-day than the
aggregate Christian Church. Catholics, Episcopalians, Presbyterians,
Methodists, Baptists, Congregational-
ista, and numerous other smaller contingents numbor in tho total millions
of adherents, and hundreds of thousands of voters. If this immense force
would but move upon the dram-shop
system, it could not live in, Canada for
a single year. From a Church or
Christian point of view, why Bhould
tho dram-shop be maintained i If tho
Church has the power, and yet fails to
uso it, is she not responsible for all the
evils which flow from these dramshops ?
If the archbishops, and bishops, and
elders, and ministry would hut unite
and earnestly work for this end, the
whole power of tho Churoh would follow them. If they du not thus unite
and thus work, and bo tho evil still
causes its continual ruin, aro they not
responsible ?
Resolutions of sympathy, protests of
repudiation, appeals for total abstinence, will nevor bring the dram-shops
to tho ground, however much theso
resolutions and protests, and appeals
be spread upon tho records of religious
bodies. The dram-shops stand by virtue of votes; lhey can be destroyed by
nothing else than votes. Why shall the
Church not marshal her hosts and advance unitedly to tho ballot hox, and
sweep once and forever from her path
theso worst foes of Christian society
and human happiness?
Up from thousands of homes robbed
of all brightness and beauty; out from
thousands of lives, wrecked and blighted for evor; up from breaking hearts,
bowed and rivon with anguish; apoak*
ing from prison grate and the maniac's
cell of raving—hear, O Churoh of the
living God, the prayers that ceaselessly
arise—the Macedonian cry, "Como
over und holp us," And ns the devastation movos onward to its future work
of death, behold the uplifted hands of
thousands, now innocent, but already
marked for destruction, who look from
afar upon Thy holy altars, and cry for
protection and safety.
Shall this ery be unheeded? The
Ohuroh can answer.
