"Flglilliis Canada."    ,
The Standard, replying to an article wliioli appeared in the Colombian under the above caption a
week ago, says, inter alia;
,. Mr. DeCosmos is noting strictly.in
the interest of the Provinco; and tlio
works, the construction of which ho is
endeavoring to procuro, would be,t»or-
manently beneficial to the whole
country .and nothing hut the most
Jiopolosaly bigoted could look upon
.thorn in nny other light, We extract
.the following front tile nrticlo in the
'Columbian alluded to above: "It ii
quite clear that Mr. DeCosmos means
to insist upon the Pn'triinion Gov.erri-
inent at once proceeding to extend tho
Canadian Pacific EailtVny down the
inlet, across the Gulf, and down the
Island to Jjsqnininlt and jiaying 92,500,
000 fife delays." It is sufficiently
obvious that the above programme,
if carried out, would be dtlVftiitageous
to the Province ill an important degroo
And genoral opinion is tiiat Mr. Do-
,0o8inos should havo every assistance
from British Columbians in his on-
^deftvor to'Carry it tint and particuhtrly
in tilts portion of tho Province. Tbo
Editor of the Columbian in his
Vehoment desiro to injure a political
opponent would deprive the Province
Vtf a positivfj bei'loht, but in this ho
is nnt likely tn attract the sympathies
of the Mainhindura who will probably
no Auito ready to accept their share
of the money when it comes to hand.
When our contemporary attributes our opposition to the crazy
and impossible theories of the "Na-
tion-mnker'- to "inveterate ritticoin
and jealousy" he mnken a mistake,
JJo such feeling exists. There is no
ground for it. Jealous of what?
The most notable political failure of
our day! On general principles,
we are opposed to this- mad theory
of "fighting Canada" without JuSt
and sufficient causa. That lias been
tlie policy bf the Walkem administration, led on by Mr. DeCosmos.
And what has Columbia gained by
it t Certainly she was oflered bet
ter terms by peaceful and friendly
negotiations than she has been able
to extort at the triOuth of her great
"blunderbuss-." And what iias she
to gain by continuing that belligerent policy I Is not a friendly Fade
l'al Government doing und promising to dr) all that, under the circumstances, could reasonably be expected} Why, then, fight! Apart altogether from the justice of our
cause—looking at- tho matter from
the lowest ground of getting nil we
ban witlldii't reference to the princi
pies of justice, what tire we to gain
by the war liow proposed by Mr,
DeCosmos! The two and a half
millions of compensation money
would be it very nice thing, and our
contemporary is quite right in saying a share of it would not be at all
unacceptable to this section of the
Province. But is there any reason
able prospect of getting it) No
sane person acquainted with all the
negotiations and the merits of tbe
question can possibly believe that
the Parliament of Canada could be
Induced to vote two millions and
half compensation money to British
Columbia in addition to what is being done now iind what lias been
undertaken. Such being the case,
now can it bo good policy, even
lipon mercenary grounds, to go to
war for it I But Mr. DeCosmos demands more than this. He demands
that the Dominion should carry the
Canadian Pacific Railway across the
gulf and down to Esqnimalt I Now,
even if such a thing came within
tlie bounds df engineering possibilities, is it reasonable to expect that
the Dominion Parliament could be
, induced to Undertake instanter und
I complete in less than three years
| such a huge undertaking in addition
Ito sufficiently onerous treaty olili-
Vgatibiisi If this question must also
1 be answered in the negative; surely
& will be clear thnt to' make a fresh
declaration of war against a friendly
kdministrution, upon such a basin,
Svotild be sheer folly. It would be
gross ingratitude. But Hie people
M this section have a very distinct
(objection to tbat part of tho scliemc

wliich conte.mplateatukiiig away the

depriving them of ilieir juat rights.
They, have no objection to me tlie
Islam! milway built, provided it in
no way iufnngrt. apon their rights
and interoatS.. But they do object
to a scheme which ' ia unreasonable,
■impracticable and suicidal—tho only
practical result of'which would be
to alienate a friendly administration
and give Mr. DeCosmos a chance to
continuo to have n good timo generally at the expense of tho tax-payers of poor 'Columbia. We are in a
position to inform our contemporary
that a very general feeling exists on
tho Mainland that this expensive
folly should end with the Provincial
-administration which "Inaugurated it,
and that a good understanding
should be established with a friendly
Federal Government.

"Ah then*, that is why you have not
been to bob us before, I suppose, as it
is a good distance awny. But now you
are horo, Martha, you will tako otf
your bonnet, and stay to tea?"
"1 cannot, my bairn, thank you,
John's sort Edmund has drivon me
here, .hu far, in liis gig, ami he's buund
to do somo jbrritnds in tho town, and
then to drive me tu Leybimi, where
my son will tneut mo and drive me
home next dny."
"I seo, And how are you 1 You
look pretty woll."
"I'm very well indued, God be
thanked, lot such an old, old woman
as I am. 1 lmvo reason tu be content.
But y<>ur m'dthei'j bairn- -how's your
Wujthor ?'!
"She has boon ill, lam very sorry
te 8;iy, and she is sleeping now. 1
daren't awaken hor, Martini, or I
would, but hor heart is weak, you
know, and we aro always afraid to
startle her or give her a shock."
"Ay, ay! Woll", you'll perhaps do as
well as her. I've had something a
deal on my mind, ever since Sunday,
when I heard of tho old squire's death,
and his will. I reckon that would be
a shook to you.
"It was," replied Judith briefly.
"Ay, indeed! And it's quite true
that ho has loft his money to his
grundeou V
''Quite true."
"Judith, my bairn, that was not
right."
"I supposo my uncle thought he had
a right to do wdiat he chose with his
own, Martha."
"In a way, lio might have, but not
after what he'd said to your mother.
People havo rights, but there's duties
too, my dear, duties, and there's htin-
esty and truth. His duty was to deal
fairly by thoso ho had encouraged to
trust in him, and ho diod with a lie in
his mouth when he led your mother to
expect hia money, and then left it
awny. But there's the Scripture} and
it's the strongest of all-" she Went on,
somewhat incoherently, as it seemed
to Judith, while she raised hor wither
ed hand with a gesture whieh had in
it something almost imposing; "and it
says, 'for unto him that hath shall be
given, ami from him tlmt hath not
shall bo taken away evon that which
he hath.'"
"It's a very tru-o Scripture, Martha,
I think—so true that it will scarcely
du fur us to Bet ourselves against it iu
this case. Tlie will is a valid olio.
Havo you sBen young Mr, Aglionby V
"Nay," she answered, with somo
vigor; "when I heard o'wltat had happened- I couldn't bide to go near the
place. And it's tho first time I've been
in th' Dido without visiting Scar Foot,
tho bonny place—'Fair Scar Foot*' the
verses call it."
"I think tliat is a pity. You would
havo found. Mr. Aglionby vory kind,
and most anxious to do all that is right
and just"
"I think for sure, he ought to be.
Why not'/ It's easy to be just when
you have lauds ana money all round,
just as it is hard for an empty stick to
stand upright..... .He must be terrible rich, my bairn--that young man."
"He is as rich as my uncle was, I
suppose. He was not rich before; he
was vory poor—as poor as we are."
Old Mrs. Paley shook hor head and
said decidedly:
"That can't bo, honey! For when
his father—poor Ralph — died, his
mother's rich rotations promised to
adopt him; and they were to look after
him, and see that he wanted for nothing. So that with money from them,
and the old Squire's money too, he
must be a very rich man."
Such, but mora rudely exprossed,
was old Martha's argument.
Judith felt a wave of sickly dread
and terror sweep Over her heart. It
made her feel cold and faint. This
rumor confronted her everywhere, this
tale without a wowi of truth in it.
Aglionby's words had been explicit
enough. On Ids mother's side ho had
no rich relations; never had possessed
even a rich connection. Yot her own
impressions, Strong, though she knew
not whence thoy wore dorived; hor
own mother's words about "Bernarda"
and what Bernarda had said (words
spoken as ahe awoke from her fainting
fit); and now old Martha' Paley—-on
all sides there scorned to be oil impression, nay, more, a conviction, that he
had been adopted by thoso mythical
rich relations. Who had at first originated thnt ronort? Whence had it
sprung ? She knew, though she had
not owned it to hersolf—she know,
though she had called herself all manner of ill-uamos for daring even to

Last week Wo lehTfe'ltor ditty to
point out the position occujiie'd by
the contractors in relation to the
serious injuries occasioned by the
late unprecedented floods to the
waggon road above Yale, and we suggested the jjnstico and propriety of
the Governtherit stepping forward
and making a i\.tr hnd equitable
compromise. Wo'did this iifwn tlie
ground that, in talcing the contact,
no allowance was tortile tor such an
unlooked-for disaster as has occurred, that tho country did not desire
damages resulting from an act of
God repaired at the expense—the
ruin—of innocent contractors, and
that the country werttfd save, instead
of lose, money bys'tich a compromise. On Tuesday the Colonist
made an unfair attack upon the proposition, contending that the contractors either did or should have
made provision for such contingencies, and pointing out that it would
be'Sstdfclishing a very bad precedent
for Government to relieve contractors in this way. When we read tho
GolonisCs strictures we felt convinced
that they had been written in ignorance of tho real position of affairsj
-&nd so it has turned o'n't. In a sensible article on Wednesday it takes
practically the same position we did,
and urges the duty of early action
iu order that the important traffic
on the trunk road, now completely
snti-pended, may be promptly resumed We, too, would repeat our con-
vifctifcn that the Government would
be doing its 'cUijy and would be fully
sustained by the 'country if it made
nn immediate compromise By which
the contractors would be placed in a
fair position to push vigorously forward repairs essential to the movement of freight. There is but one
opinion expressed with respect to
the contractors, and that ia that they
are "the right men in the right
place," tbat tho work of making
theso repairs could not be in better
hands, and we have reason to believe
that the Government could make ar
rangements with them by which
these extraordinary repairs would be
made for very much less than they
would otherwise cost. Not a day
should be lost in this matter. The
whole trade of the interior is blocked.
Editorial Notes.
The moment the Walkem Government returned to ollice in 1878, Mr.
Beavon placed upon tho statute-book
the following provision for the especial
benefit of the farmers:—"When taxes
ate delinquent, twenty-five por cent,
thereof shall be charged thereon and
added thereto, and shall form part of
-such delinquent tax, and interest shall
•at once attach thereon after the rate
. of eighteen por centum per annum."
Here is something at which Shylock
would have blushed. And yet the
farmers are asked to support men who
will retain in power for another term
of four years the author of such an infamous measure! The farmers were
taxed heavily enough, in all conscience;
but to add 25 per cent, to the amount
because a few days over due, stick 18
per cent, on the top of that and then
sell the land in the most summary
manner possible is something altogether beyond endurance.
Dry-dock matters are getting no bet*
ter very fast. According to the last
estimate prepared by order of the Government, three-quarters of a million
Will be required for the work. Mr.
Beaven made it appear that instead of
the Province owing Heed Bros, anything, that firm actually wero indebted
to the Province in the sum of $3,500.
But the arbitrators have decided that
the Province owei Reed Brothers $11,-
900, to which must, of course, be added a nice little bill of expenses. Next
in order comes the claims of the local
contractors, who, through the fault of
the Government, were prevented from
going on with the work. We have
good reason to believe that they have
excellent ground for heavy damages.
To all of this must be added the extra
cost of the work by the Government
having recourse to day labor. Altogether the Province will be very lucky
If it gats off with a million, that Is to
say if Mr. Beaven iB allowed to go on
with it. But it is a relief to feel assured that he will not be permitted to
go on with it. The new Legislature
will settle him and it and stop this
fearful drain upon the Provincial revenue. It would have been stopped last
session if our representatives had been
true to their conscientious convictions
and to the interests of their constituent!/
The contfitfon ol the waggon road
between Yale and Boston Bar is indeed, serious. It is absolutely impassable for freight, nearly so for travel,
'and the pc&ple beyond are suffering
terribly. To have ordinary supplies
completely cut off is bad enough; hut
it appears tliat large quantities of
harvesting apparatus are lying at Yule
and cannot go forward) and the consequence is that farmers, or very many
'of "tneni, are in a terrible'strait. And
the most aggravating part or the story
is that fully tw'o wftelts time has- been
lost. Had prompt i<hd energetic measures been adopted, ns should be done
in all such cases, the road would have1
been in such a condition now as ih
admit of traffic being rosbmeH. But
nothing iB being done, and, 'while the
whole upper 'cotlritry Is'St^rving, Beaven is higglihg with the contractors at
Victoria about a few dollars, more or
Wl But there is*a stilt worse'feature
of the case. The Railway contractor
promptly made a double offer to the
Government. He offered to at once
throw a largo force of men on and repair the wagon road immediately, charging only bare cost; and, inasmuch as his
working forces, implements and sup*
t-fSIrek would only have to be taken
across the river, 'it is quite clear that
he could do 'tlie ''Work very much
quicker and cheaper than anybody
else. He made an alternative offer to
the effect that if the Government
would put on a force themselves he
would agree to give the men employment after they got through, thus
doing away with the objection that
the job was too short to justify men
In going from the lower country.
Neither of these very liberal and advantageous offers would Beaven entertain fid* a moment. His mind could
not rise above the idea of higgling with
the contractors about a few dollars
whilo the country is losing thousands
evory day. Could anything more con-;
clusively demonstrate the unfitness of
the present Chief Commissioner for
the position ho holds by accident?
History tells us that *Ner6 fiddled
whilo Ruirio bunted. Without being
as great as Nero, Beaven is as mean.

Although situated within the city
limits and its whistle is heard threo
times a day, we venture to thi V that
few even in this community fully realize the extent and importance of this
manufacturing establishment, The
main building is 187x120 feet and two
stories high. There are two boiler*
and two engines havint? Sfln Horse
power.   The folio v. a the
principal machinery: i p«.i circular
saws 65 inch and 50 inch; 1 pair edg-
ers; 2 trimmers;-! benh saws; 1 jig
saw; 1 band saw; 1 gang saw; 2 box
saws; 3 planers; 2 moulding machines;
1 shaping machine; 1 morticing machine; one laith -saw; 1 tenoning
machine.
Besides these there are quite a variety of minor machinery, such as turning, band sawing, scroll sawing, shaping, &c.j &C.J comprising the newest
and most advanced design.
A force of seventy-five m-'h are employed in the various departments,
and the daily output is: 25,000 feet
rough lumber; 12,000 feet dim ed lumber (there is capacity for turning out
25,000); 1,500 cases (tor canned salmon); 50 windows; 50 dnrtrs; 0,000 lath.
The manufacture of cases, rrays, Ac,
for the fish canneries ia a specialty.
About 10,000 trays have already been
manufactured this season. The vender
maybe surprised to be told Hint an
average cannery uses up about fifteen
hundred of theso trays every season.
There is also an iugenious machine for
printing tho trade-mark, name of cannery, Ac. upon the coses.
The establishment comprises quite a
number of other buildings*, amongst
which are a two-Story building 03x30,
used for store and office) and kilns
with a drying capacity of 20,000 feet.
Tlio property lias a frontage of 3%
feet on the river, with a good, substantial wharf alongside of whieh ncean
steamships can lio with safety and convenience. Tho ground, buildings and
plant are valued at 960,000, and the
establishment usually carries a stock
to the value of $15,000—thus making
the property as it stands worth 875,-
000. Not that it could be purchased
for that.
Tho reader will readily understand
the substantial advantages accruing to
tho community from such a largo industrial establishment in its midst.
The monthly disbursement for Wages
alone cannot fall short of 85,000, to
say nothing about tho large amount of
money, certainly not less than $100,-
000 a year, retained in the country
that formerly went awuy for such
things as are manufactured in it—for
tlie reader must understand that many
articles besides those above referred
to are turned out of this establishment.
The projectors, owners and managers through whose enterprise, perseverance and business ability nil this
has been accomplished are as follows;
Mr. John Hendry, late of Gloucester,
New Brunswick; Mr. David McNair,
of Restigouche, New Brunswick; Mr.
Andrew Haslam, of Albert County,

]\i W. J. ARMSTRONG.
To (lie Electors or New West"
minster District.
Gentlemen:—-I am a candidate
for the representation of your District
in the Legislative Assembly; and although most of you are doubtless already aware of my views uuon the
leading public questions of Ilie day,
still ills filling that, in soliciting your
suffrages, I should make a brief statement of my puiiiie..l "creed"—more
particularly in respect of those questions with which the next Legislature
may be expected to deal.
THE   DhY DOCK*.
The published reports of recent investigations into the management of
affairs connected with this work, while
showing a deplorable want of foresight and judgment, if not honesty, on
the part of tlie Government, amply
prove that a continuance of the same
policy would lead the country into
serioiis financial distress.
You will remember that the dock
was specifically provided for in the
Terms of Union, and It had no more
right to become a charge iipbn the
Provincial revenue than any oflhe other works mentioned in .these Terms.
Indeed, H was Upon the solemn assurance of the Provincial Government
that the dock "would not cost the
Province a dollar" that the Legislature
Was induced to sanction tlie scheme
Which lias led to such disastrous, results.
Upoh this work, hits already been
squandered several hundred thousand
' dlars of public money which should
been applied towards the con-
biru ion and maintenance of roads
and bridges and the establishment of
schools i n the settlements; and according to present appearances, the waste
oi our revenue upon the dock will exceed half a million before the work
can be brought to completion, to say
nothing about perpetual demands for
maintenance.
It will, therefore, be amongst the
most important duties of the Legislature to devise some means of lifting this
intolerable burden entirely off the
shoulders of the Province.
CHINESfe UAIlORi
When In the Leglslaturcj ten years
ago. I was the first to direct attention
td what Is ndw known as the Chinese
Evil; With great difficulty 1 succeeded in having Chinamen excluded
from the political franchise. The
very party now in power succeeded in.
defeating my efforts to exclude them
from the country; and amongst those
who now talk the loudest against the
Chinese I observe some who were at
that period the strongest opponents of
repressive measures. Had timely and
robust efforts been put forth there is
no reason to dout that, instead of a
yellow curse in the forth" of ten thousand Mongolian slaves draining the
wealth of the country Into the pockets
of their forelgh tiw'ners, we should have
had a white blessing In the form of at
least an equal, number of our'own
race, helping to enrich the country
and bulla up happy and prosperous
eommunities.
. To devise and. apply a remedy for
this now universally admitted evil will
constitute one of the problems with
which the new Legislature will be
called updn to deal. Recent effort in
that direction Has never risen higher
than political clap-trap and street-
corner declamation.
REP. BY POP.
The doctrine of Representation by
or according to population—the old-
war-cry of Ontario thirty years ago —
Is one which must commend itself to
every fair-minded person, although
there   may be  circumstances under
which its full application would scarcely be practicable. The time has come
when there should be a nearer approximation to that principle in British Columbia.
During the last. Legislature we saw
fifteen electors in Kootenay sending to the House, ex$t;tly the same
.number of representatives that eight
hundred electors in the Valley of
the Fraser were allowed to send! An
attempt.to., give-your District some
a^jrokfm^trdn to the representation
to which its voting power and immense resources entitled It was defeated by the casting .Vote' « % part'fzan
Speaker; and yet tlie men who perpetrated that glaring act of injustice
have the assurance to ask you for;a
fresh lease of power I
Such monstrous inequalities in the
representation of the country must be
remedied; and should I have tlie
honor of being elected as one of
your representatives, I shall make it
my especial business to insist upon
justice beine done to your important
District in this respect,
FISCAL POLICY.
Through tn'e laziness and incompetency of thos"e in power the fiscal
■affairs of the country -have been allowed to drift into a condition the reverse of satisfactory. The wretched
patchwork.of upwards of a decade
must be replaced, .by something deserving the name of ^poriey."
At present, "How to raise mosl
rcVcnue with least trouble" woulfi
appear to be the problem with which
the Government has been Wrestling;
and the consequence is that, whjre
taxation falls with crushing seventy
upon farmers—the very class which
should be most lightly taxed—the least
•productive classes escape almost scot
fre*** .. i     .-  4    rt ,»*
Taxation is inevitable* Revenue is
essential. But it should be the earnest endeavor of a Government to so
apportion taxation as that tt shall fall
lightest upon the industrial classes,
■and so expend revenue as that the per-
'manent interests of the country shall
be .promoted. The whole ftstal'fabrlc
of tiie Province needs reconstruction*
PUBLIC WORKS.
It is admitted on all sides that the
Public Works of the country have
been allowed to fall into a condition
litlle short of disgraceful! Much
tare ant! attention will be required to.
remedy this state of things; A judicious, though not necessarily heavy,
expenditure ought to take the pluc'e of
unwise nntl ruinous parsimony^
EDUCATION.
While believing In a comprehensive
system of slate education which shall
meet the reasonable wants of every
settlement, I feel bbund tb condemn
some things done under the present
system—more" especially the provision
by which the children of the wealthiest, and, consequently, least necessitous, community receive a free high
school education at the expense of the
taxpayer's, while those of settlers (the
most important element) are in many
instances left absolutely without any
provision whatever for the education
of their offspring,
ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE.
Judges are made for the People,—
not the People for the Judges; and
the Legislature should insist upon
such a disposition of the Judges as
will most conduce to the public welfare.
There should also be established
without delay such a scale of remuneration for petit jurors and crewn
witnesses as will be equitable and just
to all classes of Her Majesty's subjects.
ISLAND   RAILWAY.
Through the glaring incapacity and
Inexplicable chicanery of thnse entrusted with the conduct of affairs, the
Island Railway question probably
never was in a less satisfactory condition than it is to-day.
While I feel assured that there is
no disposition on this side of the Gulf
tn see those on the other side deprived of any possible advantage that
might accrue from the construction of
that railway, yet it is quite certain
that any attempt to make it a charge
eithfer directly Or consequentially upon
the Provincial revenue, or tb make it
in any way interfere with tlie completion or terminus of the Canadian Pacific Hallway, would meet with a very
determined opposition:
OUR FEDERAL RELATIONS.
While strongly asserting the Provincial autonomy, it should ue the airii
of bur. Government and Legislature
to cherish ani maintain relations offe
friendly character with a friendly Federal Administration, and avoid useless
and expensive appeals from Its deliberate and authoritative decisions,, its
far as Is consistent with t]ie just claims
of the country; To maintain at considerable expense atOttawaan "Agent-
General" whose services are of doubtful utility, whose eccentricities are
liable to place the Province in a false
position, and whose extreme sectionalism must disqualify him as a representative of the whole Province, is,
to say the very least, unwise. It is
contrary to the genius of our institutions and unfair to our constitutional
representatives in the Federal Parliament.
RAILWAY MATTERS GENERALLY.
The work of constructing the Canadian Pacific Hallway, so long delayed,
is now making satisfactory progress
—although one class of labor employed
is anything but satisfactory—and there
is every reason to hope that before
the Legislature now about to be con-
stitutea shall have run Its natural course
that railway will span the continent.
Many new rtieasiires of a.progressive
character will undoubtedly be necessary to meet the altered and ever improving condition of the country.
Whether one.lqoks to the present ex-
trerriely unsatisfactory condition of
affairs, superinduced oy a too long
term in office of unscrupulous men, or
at the not distant future so pregnant
with important results and momentous
possibilities, one is constrained to admit that the supreme epoch In the
history of our Province is near, and
that if ever.there was a time When the
services of the country's best men
were needed to guide the ship of state,
it h now.
M will therefore be your duty and
your interest to select such representatives as possess the ability, the forethought and the energy to place public
affairs upon such a sound and healthy
basis as will fit the Province to enter
Upon the new order of things with advantage to itself and credit to the great
Dominion of which it is destined tb
become so important a part.
There never waa—thore nevor may bean election fraught with such important

Dominion TisneVieSi
It appears from the published Report of the Department that Canada's
fish harveat last year amounted in
value to closo upon sixteen millions.
Tlio year before it was fourteen and a
half millions. In tho list of Provinces
British Columbia stands fifth, being
$713,330 in 1880 and $1,464,321 in
1881,—no insignificant increase. But
it should bo observed .that these
figures 'only represent tiie export values.
According to the official returns, if the
entire catch be taken into account,
British Columbia will Btaria about the
head of the list. Should this year's
run come up to the mark Columbia
will "show a'ptlr of clean Heels" in

At the assizes held at Yale last week,
the Grand Jury made a very sensible
Report. Reference was made to the
fact that tl\o town is not incorporated.
The sanitary condition of the place
wns dealt with, also tlio staid of the
public institutions, -wliich was creditable to those in charge. The necessity
for abating curtain nuisances, such as
ill-kept pig-ite'tiB, the (ft'rttructiiirjf of
public Bido-walks by placing chairs
thereon, &c, was pointed out. Becoming sympathy was bipresBod for
the sufferers by the lat« disastrous
floods; the urgent necessity for the immediate repairs uf the waggon road
was referred to, and fitting acknowledgment whs made of the Dominion
appropriation for tho ;"much-needed
work" of clearing thu channel of tlie
Lower FraBer.
l'EPLVINO,
His Lordship dwelt at considerable
length and with much clearness' and
force upon a number of important
topics touched and untouched, iii the
Report. He pointed out the stops to
be taken to obtain incorporation and
tho benefits accruing therefrom. He
particularly referred to the appeals
from the Licensing Court, pointing
out that liquor licenses were, or ought
only to be, issued for public convenience; not for individual aggrandize-
merit,1 iind that a license imposed responsibilities as well as carried privileged. He referred to the discretionary powers conferred upon tho Magistrates in granting or withholding liquor
licenses, a power wit,!*, which he would
be very sorry to interfere, and he
evinced a very decided du'nosition to
uphold their decisions. His. Lordship
also explained the working of in\e ,Pub-
lic Works Act. the provisions of which
hod recently boon put in force along
the line of railway, pointing out its
object and effect, more particularly in

The large hall in which the exercises
took place was tastefully decorated for

part entered with much onthuBiasni
into thb performance. The programme
of proceedings was auhlciently Varied
to make it interesting throughout. It
embraced vocal and instrumental music, recitations; charades, and dramatic
perfomi-tt-cccs. Tho print's woro distributed by the Right Kov. Bishop De
Herbomez.after which Rev. Father Horris expressed his pleasure at seeing so
large n number of spectators, present,
showing tlie interest they felt iu the
great work of edwifl-tion. The future
prospects of the rising ^enefntion, he
said, depended very much upon the
ftcquisitiotj of a sound, practical education1 i It was the greatest gift a parent
could bestow upon his ch.lfJj-jiuirt, it
would save them from many" difficulties
and dangers in life. ..But parents must
not forget that a secular education
without a knowledge of the law bf God
might provtj a ounw instead uf a blessing. Examples' of uiis were<. unfortunately, too common;. Thtit oducation
in which God is ignored is lacking in
its mopt esieiitial quality. Rev. Father
Horris paid a high compliment to the
pupils for their progress in the respective, branches; wliicH reflected great
credit upon tHeir1 zealous and indefatigable preceptors.
The programme and prize list aro
very long and wo are reluctantly com
polled to hold them over till next issue.

Personal.—Historical.
For some time past the local drgait
of a demoralized administration has
been devoting its whole energy and
most of its editorial space to the inter-
eating work of heaping personal abuse
upon Mr. Robson—endeavoring to
make him out a failure, a "dead-beat"
both as 6 public journalist and a politician, one who never did and never
will exert tho slightest influence in
public affairs. Perhaps Mr. Robson
ought really to feel grateful for the
opportunities tftiift afforded of 'milking
personal explanations and statements
which, under other circumstances, he
might ox'poritince some delicacy in
presenting to the- public. At any
rate these coarse and venomous personal attacks must plead our excuse for
offering the following historical jottings—chiefly designed for such of the
Electors in New Westminstor District
as may have pome hero since these
occurrences took place. Many of tho
old settlers wfl! bear witness: to tho
accuracy of most of those statements,

In the year 1800 Mr. Robson, laying down tbe axe and sllovd, took up
the pen and commenced tho publication of the BlUTif-H CotntMAX newspaper, a paper which soon -became an
acknowledged power in the laud,
Six years later he was elected Mayor
of this City (a position at that period
accounted honorable) and soon afterwards Member for the 'Otty and District in the Legislative Council. His
parliamentary duties were discharged
with so much acceptance that ho was
the recipient of a very flattering address, accompanied by a purso containing 8000 in gold coin. He was reelected by acclamation for a second
term, during w-liich he dwchai-ged his
duties with equal satisfaction to his
cntiBtitueiitfl.
The seat of government having been
removed   from Now West minster
SW Now unpacking at .Tas. Ellard k
Co.'s, the latest fashions for 1882 in
Ladies' and Children's Straw Hats, Millinery, Laces, Ac.   Call und examine.
1883, tho city dwindled down to a
very low ebb, and ceased to be an important political ccntro, and Mr. Robson, with the fullest concurrence of
his friends, reruoved temporarily to
Victoria, whero the important public
Questions of the period—particularly
tho questions of Confederation and
Responsible Government—had to bo
fought out.
&**1vl tho smiinier bf 1869 Mr.
Robson was induced by Borne of the
most influential moti of that time to
accept tho position of responsible editor of th'ti Colonist at a ltiotr-thly salary
of $250, and in doing so he was tbe
innocent cause of displacing a person
by the name of J. K. Sutor, who was
at that time employed on tho editorial
staff of that journal at a salary of $5g
a month. Whether bi* tint that little
circumstance mny have contributed
towards the rancorous hato and jealous
spito ever Bince exhibited by that person towards Mr. Robson wo leave to
the public to judge."®**;
During thu five yours ntid a half that
Mr, Robson held the position it was
universally admitted that he did much
towards securing for the Colonist a
leading position in the country, and it
is certain that he changed its tone to
one of uniform friendliness to this
part of the Province.
During the early part of 1870, tho
last session; in which far. Robson sat
for Now Westminster, the Terms of
Uniiin with Caihdt-S \fore iliscuf-sed iind
framed, a work in which it is scarcely
necessary to say he took a very prominent part—as, indeed, he had dono in
advocating Confederation and Responsible Government for years beforo.
Ho had tho satisfaction of being in-
striitiiehtal iii obtaining several concessions, tlio iiioat important of which
was Responsible Government.
Tho following extracts from the
official report of the debates which
took place on, the Terms of Union
will help to Isliow in what estimation
Mr. Robson was held. Responsible
Government being the immediate subject of discussion,
Hon. Mr. Tiujtch (having disposed
of Mr. Humphrey's speech) said:—
"But, sir, the argument of tho Hon.
Monibor for Now Westminster is nf a
very different character. I congf;i.tu-
late him and I cougrafulate the Houston the manner in whieh tho matter
was treated" Hy him. * * * Tho
Hm.i. Member for New Westminster,
in bis powerful oratim., has, not oiily
allured us witli the prospects of popularity under Responsible, Government,
but ho has, I will net stay threatened,
but warned us of tho results of opposing him in this matter."
Replying more particularly to Mr.
Reason's contention that the poople
of British Columbia wero fit for self-
government and that there were many
wording men in the country well qualified td £ak6 seatrf round the lA-gitflatfvo
table,'     , t        -.,,.,.
Hon. Mr. Walkem paid:--"The
main speech, for the Hon. Member f<->r
Victoria District (Mr. DeOosmoBj did
not deign to express his views, hns
hpon that of the Hon. Member for
New Westniihster. As I, lis'tancd to
that speech, sir, one of the (beat over
uttered in this Houso, I almost felt
thatjor fi\;e long years I had boon
wrong. He almost made a convert of
tno.. * *. "*, I,coincido. with tho
Hon.' Member (or Now Westminster
as to what he saysaboutcallous hands.
I beliove'. thoro' aro mon with tattered
garments in tho country quito capable
of giying a sensible vote upon all questions likely to come before a Council
in this Colony. * * * Those gentlemen with the patched garments and
callous bands have the same opportunity that the Member for New Westminster lias had of coming into this
House. Flo has told us with pride of
his hard work as a pioneer on thu Fraser river, and to-day wo boar him advocating with most eloquent lojiguoge
his views upon this great question.
His voice has had much to do with
shaping the councils of this House,
and I ask, aro theso doors shut to any
man in the Colony of equal talent with
tho honorable gentleman who can bo
found'willing to devote thoir time to
tho servico of their country ?'
It will be observed that tho aWe
quoted acknowledgments came from
opponents—gent lemon with whom Mr.
Robson was contending in a hand-to-
hand struggle for the political rights
of the people.       - .*  ,
At tlie closo df that session Mr.
Robson wns sent for by Governor Mus-
grave and invited to go to Ottawa as
ono of the Delegatus to arrange with
tho Canadian Government for tlio admission of British Columbia upon the
Terms passed by the Legislature or
upon hucIj modified terms as might be
mutually agreed upon--an invitation
which Mr. T«obson, for business reasons, hesitated to accept, and other
arrangements wore mado.
In 1871 Mr. Robson, in response to
a pressing invitation, consented to
become a candidate for the representation of tho important District of
Nanaimo in the new Legislature. He
was elected, and represented that constituency with complete satisfaction
until, in April 1875, he accepted service under tho Dominion Government,
as Paymaster and Purveyor'of tho C.
P. R. S. m British Columbia, at a salary of !?*},000. It was whilo representing Nanaimo that Mr. Robson was
offered and refused a seat in the
McCreight Ministry.
For four years (less two months)
Mr. Robson continued to hold the
important and very responsible Dominion appointment, during which
period considerably over a million of
dollars was disbursed by him nnd the
whole business of that vast service
managed to tho entire satisfaction of
the Department al Ottawa.
During the period he held that
appointment, as well as subsequently,
Mr. Robson employed every legitimate
means in his power for tho purpose of
having tho railway brought down the
valley of the Fraser, and he had the
satisfaction of being invited to Ottawa
in the spring of 1878 in connection
with that question; aud he had tho
still greater .satisfaction of knowing
that he was enabled to render important service in that direction.
Since then Mr. Robson has dared to
renow the publication of the British
Columbian, and once more lift up
his Italics against bad government
aud iu defence of the rights of the
people; and he lias succeeded in a few
months hi building up a first-class
newspaper busiuess-~a business which
makos liis local contemporary green
with envy.
Worse still, - Mr. Rob-on litis had
the astounding presumption to aspire
onco more to represent in the Legislature tlio placo of his first ..choice, the
scene of lib pioneer struggles, tho
District in which his largo property
interests are situated!
Those simple and unvarnished facts
may suffice for the present as an
answer to the vituperation constantly
flowing through the columns of the
Guardian, Tlt'ay may aid such of the
Electors as have uot had au opportunity
of becoming acquainted with Mr; Robson and his antecedents to come to a
correct conclusion respecting his
fitness fo do them good service in thu
most important crisis of our country's
history.

WM. RAE,
ap'2?
Columbia StueeT. (From First I'tigeO
guess such a thing.. It was because
sho knew, that Bhe had refused Aglion-
by'a overtures.
For a moment or two, cowardice was
nearly gaining the victory. Mi's. Paley
was an old, feeble woman; Judith
could easily, turn her thoughts upon
anothor track; the worst need "never
be stated. But another feeling stronger than this shrinking from the truth',
urged her to learn it and sho said:
"Indeed, and how do you know this,
Martha?"
"How do I know it, bairn? Why,
from your own mother's lips, as who
else should I know it from*! Ay, and
sho cried and sobbed when sho brought
tho news.   You know it was like in
this  way that it   happonod.    Whon
Ralph got married, and for long before
I was housekeeper at Scar Foot, I well
remember it all, and the old Squire's
fury, and   the names ho called the
woman who had married his sou; 'a
low, penniless jado,' ho called her* ay,
and worse than that. Ho always meant
Ralph to havo your ntfitlfer, you know.
Sho was  ever a favorite with him.
Whethor that would have coriiolo anything in any case, I don't know, for
whatever she might have done, Ralph
said much and more, tliat he wouldn't
wod her.   Ho went of! to London, and
married  his wife   there*!  The  flows
came, and  the, Squire •was furious.
How he raged'! He fcocm forbade Ralph
the housC, and cut oil' his allowance,
and refused to see him, or hear of him.
Two   or   throe  years  passed,  your
mother was married, and lived in this
house, which had been her mother's
before her.   'I think tho old Squire's
conscionco began to prick, for he had
got uneasy about his son, and at last
would have sent for him, I believe,
but while he was making up his mind
Ralph died, and then it was too late.
For a time it fairly knocked the old
man down.   Thou ho came round-, and
began to think that he would like to
lmvo the boy, and he evon made up
bis mind to inako some sort of terms
with tho wife so as to get tho boy into
his own caro, aud "bring him up an
Aglionby, and not a vagabond," as he
said.   It was a great descent for his
pride, Miss Judith.    Ho took counsel
with your mother, and sent her to Irkford,' where Mrs.  Ralph lived, that
great big town, you know I've never
been there, but they do say that it's
wonderful for sine and for dirt.   He
sent her there to seo tho mother and
try to persuade her to let him have
the child for tho best part of the year,
and she was to havo it for the rest,
and it was to bo brought up like a gentleman, nnd sent to college, and then
it was to have all the money when ho
died, same as if his father had nevor
crossed him.
"Your mother—sho was not a widow
then, you know, nor for many a year
after—sho was away about threo days.
When she came back, she camo alone,
The old Squire was as white as a sheet
with expectation and excitement. I
was by at the time, and I saw and
heard it ull. Ho said, 'Where'a the
boy ?' in a very quiot, stmngo kind of
voice; 'Oh, uncle,' your mother said
—'she's an awful woman—she's like a
tigress.' Thou she cried and sobbed,
and said it had been too much for hor
"nerves; it had nearly killed her. Aud
alio told him how Mrs. Ralph had got
into a fury, and said she would never
bo parted for a day from hor child,
and spurned his oiler. The old Squire
said with his grim little laugh, that
perhaps when sho was starving, sho
would be so ready to spurn. 'Oh, sho
starve,' your mother said, 'she has
plenty of rich relations, and that is
partly what makes her so independent.
Ralph has left her tho child's solo
guardian. She scorns and spurns us,
and I believe sho would liko to seo us
humbled in the dust beforo her. Thon
the old Squire let bis hatred loose
against his son's wife. With his ter-
ribl-» look that ho could put on at
times, he sat down besido your mother
(sho was flung on a sofa, you know,
half-faint ing) and ho bade her toll him
all about it. He questioned and she
answered, and she was trembling like
a leaf all tho time. He bade me stay
where I was, as witness. And at last,
when ho had heard it ull out, ho swore
a fearful oath, and took heaven and us
to witness that from heceforth, as long
as he lived, ho would lmvo nothing to
do with his grandchild. It might
starve, he said, or dio or rot, or uny-
thing its mother chose, for aught hu
cared- -he had done with it forever. It
was terrible to hear him. And from
that day, none of us dared name tho
child to him. He spent a deal of his
time at Yoresett House with your
mother. I heard him many a timo toll
her she and hers were all tho children
he had. And after your father died,
he went on purpose to tell her not to
ba uneasy, but to leave him to do things
his own way, and that you children
should thrust that biat out of Scar
Foot at hist. And now ho goes and
leaves it all his money. Eh, my bairn,
tliat was vory wrong."
Judith, when she answered, spoke,
and indeed felt, quite calm: the very
hugeness of tho effort she had made
in order to speak at all kept her calm
and quiot. Sho had never oven conceived of anything liko thu dreadful
ihamo she felt as sho said:
"It is a terrible story, Martha. It
is vory woll that you told it to mo instead of to my mother, for she is not
strong enough to bear having it raked
up again. Have you,'1 her voicejilmost
diod away upon hor lips—"havo you
relfttod it to any one olso ?"
"Nay, not I! I thought I'd just seo
Mistress Conisbrough, und ask her if
thoro was nothing to bo done. If sho
wus to spoak to somo lawyer—some
clever man—aud some of them is so
clever, you know, happen ho might bo
ablo to sot aside the will."
"That is what she thought of at
first," said Judith, strenuously keop--
ing her mind fixed upon the subject;
battling hard to keep in restraint, the
sickly four at her heart lest any of the
unsuspecting ones around them should
by chance comu in and interrupt the
interview. "Rut Mr. Whaley told
hor ifc would not bo of the very slightest uso. And—and—Martha, I think
you nro very fond of* us all, aro you
not ?" -    ■
Sho camo noar to the old Woman',
and knelt bosido her, with her hands
clasped npun hor knoo, and she lookod
up into* Martha's face.
"Ay, my bairn. I am so." Sho
passed her withered, hand over Judith's
gloSBy brown braids. "I am so fond
of yo all that I cannot abido to soo ye
oust out by n usurper." I
"Then if you really caro for us,
please, Martha, say nothing moro to
any ono about this, will you? I will
toll you why. We have reason to
think that Sir. Aglionby's relations
wero not really so rich as—ni was represented, or if they wore, they must
have changed their minds about adopting him, for ho wns very poor, really,
when his grandfather found him. And
as it would not be of the least uso to
dispute, tho will, wo want to keep it all
quiet, don't you see? and to make no
disturbance about it. Will you promise, Martha?"
"Ay, if you'll promise that if ever I
could bo of use by telling all about it,
as I'vo told it to you, now, that you'll
uend for mo, eh, bairn ?"
"Oh, I promise that, yes."
"Then I promise you what you want.
It's not such a pleasant thing that
ono should want to be raking it up at
every turn, to one's friends and neighbors."
Judith felt her heart grow cold and
faint at tho images conjured up by
these words of tho old woman, who
wont on, aftor a pause, during which
her thoughts seemed to dwell upon
tho past. "Do you know him, my
bairn, this young man '?
"Yus," replied Judltn, a flood of
color rushing tumultously over hor
pale face. Tho question was sudden;
the emotion wan, for the moment, uncontrollable. Her clear eyes, which
had been fixed on old Martha's face,
wavered, sank.
Though Mrs. Paloy was a withored
old woman of eighty, sho could read ft
certain language on the human face as
glibly as any young maid of eighteen.
"You do? There's anothor reason
for my holding my tongue. You Bay
he's considerate, and wishful to do
right. Is he reasonable, or is he one
of thorn that havo eyes* but seo not 1
If ho has eyes-, ho will want never to
lose sight of you again. If you and he
wore to wed—oh, what a grand way of
making alt straight, and healing all
dimities, and ft way after the Lord's
own heart, too."
A littlo shudder ran through Judith.
She did not tell old Martha that Aglionby was already engaged; or Mrs,
Paloy'b indignation would perhaps
havo loosed her tongue, in other quarters than this, uud Judith wished
abovo all things, and at almost any
prico, to secure hor silence. She know
now that had Bernard been as freo as
air; had he loved her and her alono,
and told her so, and wooed hor with
all tho ardor of Which he was capable
—after what she had just now heard
she would havo to say him nay, cost
her what it might; a spoiled lifo, a
brokon heart, or what you will,
Sho rose from her knees, smiled a
chilly littlo attempt at a smile, and
said:
"I'm afraid you aro a match-maker,
Martha," uud then to her unspeakable
relief she heard tho sound of wheels.
It was John Heseltine's son Edmund
with the gig, coming to fetch Martha
away.
The old woman did not ask to seo
tho other girls. The s'ory she had
been telling hnd sent her thoughts
wandering back to old times; sho had
forgottun Judith's sisters, who wore to
her things of yesterday. Whon Bhe
departed, Judith shook her withered
old hand; promised to deliver her messages to her mother, led her to the
door; saw her seated in the gig, and
drivou off, sure that bIio would keep
tho promise sho had given. And thus
old Martha Paley disappears from
these pages.
Judith returned to the houso, and
stood in tho hall for a moment or two,
then mechanically took hor way upstairs, along the passage, to lior own
bedroom. Sho sat down and folding
ho hands upon hor knee, she began to
think. Painfully, shrinkingly, but
laboriously, sho went in hor mind over
evory dotail of this horrible story. She
felt a vague kind of hope that perhaps,
if it all came to bo compared and sifted, the particulars might be found incongruous; she might be unable to
make them agree with ono another,
and so have a pretext for rejecting it.
Rut, as she earned over each one, she
found that they fitted together only
too well—both hor own vague, almost
formless suspicions, nud tho tangible
facts which explained thorn.
Her great-uncle hnd hnd an interview with his grandson; she exactly
understood how, talking to Rernard
about whnt he supposed to bo his true
position, ho had been enlightened,
aud that with a shuck. He must have
restrained his wrath so far as not to
reveal to Aglionby what ho had discovered; he had, as ho thought, had
pity upon hor mother and her mother's
daughters. She remembered their
journey back from Irkford, and how
her uncle's strangely absent and un-
genial manner had struck her, and
chilled her. Then, whilo she and her
Bisters were out, on tho following morning hu had visited her mother. She
cuuhl form no idoa of what had passed
at that interview; it must have been a
painful one, for her mothor had not
muntionod it, but had been left shaken
and ill by it. Next, Judith's own interview with her uncle; his extraordinary reception of her; his fury, unaccountable to her nt tho time, but
which was now only too comprehensible; liis t-inisU'i* accusations of herself
and her mothor, as being leagued together in somo plot—some scheme to
llecco and hoodwink him; now she
could interpret this fiery writing on
thu wall, clearly enough. Hor return
home; the storm; tho apparition of
Mr. Whaley driving through it and
the night, toward Scar Foot; tho
hastily executed will; tlio miserable
scone when its contents wore mado
known) hor mother's sudden fear and
cowering down before Aglionby; her
broken words on recovering consciousness—that repetition of the lio told
twenty years before, and more. Thoso
words had first aroused her suspicion,
hor vague fear that all was not ho clear
aud straightforward as it should be.
Now came old Martha, liko a finger uf
some inspired interpreter, pointing out
tho meaning of each strange occurrence, throw ing a flood of light ovor all,
by hor grim story of an old man's im-
perimis will thwarted—of a young
man's obstinato weakness; of a woman's yielding to temptation, mid tolling lies fur gain. Each dotail now
seemed to dovetail with hideous accuracy into its neighbor, until the mined
truth, tho damnable and crushing
whole seemed to start up and stand
before her, stark and threatening.
