Summit city Saloons.
A very ewsellont correspondent of
the Viotoria Colonist who has been
writing up matters and things along
the 0| P.J R., draws 4(1 foilo*-inj[
picture of Summit' Oity and its
saloons. The picture, it must bo
confessed,.is not:- very flattering-td
Uritish' Oolumbia; or to the wisdom
or morality of the liquor license system under which the business 6/
ruinifg! human jbeings becmpes legal
and>'«osi)*(ctable.'' i jTW>ioojMMjpn-
dent says: It is at the summit where
the pjreater (number of men are engaged in building the snow-sheds,
and a town of a month's growth has
sprung, up; built after the.style of
other tsjmporaiy -railway towns and'
composed of the same class of business houses as are found iri such
plac*s, chiefly saloons gambling nnd
dauoe • houses, to beguile the hard
earnings of the-laborer and allow
him] to leave after his season's work
"bum"'' A bed "was- secured dt the
"best hotel." The law requires thut
refreshment and lodging, be furnished before license is grtmted and
in tliis particular case the attempt-
consisted of a spacious saloon, the
bar bejng on one.nide, thestud-JiorsS
polar and other gaming rabies on
the .other. The sleeping accommodation consisted of one large room
with seven beds, separated fiom tlie
saloon by a cotton partition. Back
of this were two private rooms, the
partitions being of the same airy
character. The refreshments con
sistedof a .(free lunch counter. Business in the-saloons during the day
is .iteUssarily dull, tlie great majority of. the. population, of course, consisting of the mert employed on con-'
struption.: - > A> good meal is procuiv
able at the restaurant with the
rather suggestive nam* of "Can-can-
Chop House." There are altogether
about 15 hotels (I) in this railway
town of Rojjeijs'Bass, all stationed
there, dot' lor'the purpose' of 're-
frelhment, but simply and solely
with the object of gaining the. wages
of I thd railway employes, eithsr
through drinking or gambling.. Some
of' the saloons -had music, one a
string band of unusual excellence.
About seven* o'olock. in the evening ''businiiss'' begins. The.dealers take their places at the studhorse tables, and> commence opeta-
tions! by playing a game ivith an
employe or the house.' One and -
anoSieridrop, in and take » hand-in
the game) and in an houi!s time all,
the; wloonsiin t hs stteet havo tbair
tables orow^adj with mepi takurc
chances ItSW the tlirU W K card: In
one place the, dealer is the wife, of
the proprietor, arid she distributes
the cards with unusual dexterity and
collects the ten per cent, of the winv
nings to tUd credit ill Uie house with
unfailing promptness.. At one sal.
oon a' dance was- held, commonoing
at 10 o'clock' the feiipale jMrtuers
consisting of the colored demi'-motiie
of the itown- the Imale dancers paying 25 cents for, the privilege of
whirling one of these maids of the
mc-tu-tyuu through tho windings^ or
kickings it may be, of the (Since.
And so tho revels keep up; iutitil
daylight in the morning, and the
heavy heads retire to rest, some
under. < some on the poker tallies,
some Steep in oh*t.|rS, while a' few
haye -this hitury of a 'bed ill the.
large room, or mayhap art partners
in- foe] | with at> i unknown. -; Your
correspondent, retired early, but it
wa* ntirly impossible to sleep, with
tha nohri* of drinkers and gamesters
only shut out by a piece of cotton.
At | six o'clock everyone has retired,
and silenco reigns tor a few hours.
Such is jlife in the railway cq-istroi-
ticn town, repeated daily, Saturday
antfSuridaynights being thd bimitst,
many of the jitio? afeludiW! hdfn-thlty

By introducing Its popular Unconditional Mfo Policy the Sun showed Itself one
of tho most, liberal Institutions of Its kind
In the world. It maintains this reputation by following the soxne course in Its
Accident Department. It. offers to the
public Incomparably ' .;-
The Most liberal, Btratglitroraard, la-
tcchnlcnl Accident Policy In Existence.
Tho following are a few of the points of
superiority:
Fiftkkn Days ov Gback are allowed.
(See condition 1). No other Compnny In
America allows one hour.
BoNUH*-Should no claim be made for
fivo years, tho sixth year's assurance will
bo allowed freo of chargo, if the ago is
under 05. (See condition 2). Very few.
other Companies give this privilege.
Policies Not voided by engaging in
a more hazardous occupation than that
assured against. For particulars see Policy. This advantage can be obtained
hardly anywhere else.

Another Railway Project.
The people of Victoria are earnestly discussing u continuation of
the- Nanaimo railway along the entire length of Vancouvor Island to
its extreme northwest end. It is
estimated thnt the work could be
done i for $5,000,000, and it is proposed that the remaining 5,000,000
aeres of land on Vancouver Islnnd
shnll be used as a means of raising
that amount. The project is a big
one, the feasibility of which it is
not easy to determine, since the
region through which the road would
pass is almost entirely a terra incognita. It is also difficult to see
where the trade is to come from to
make the road pay after it has been
built. As a public work, however,
such a railway might fairly claim a
public bqnys,;ttnd.we should not object1 to the gift of u considerable
quantity of the waste lands for that
purpose. It hnB always been believed that the north-western por-,
tion of Vancouver Islivnd is rich in
resources of timber, conl, nnd the
precious metals; but it is almost inaccessible, and. will probably remain
undeveloped for ages un'ess opened
by a railvrry. If the popular belief in tlie richness of this region
turns out to bo well founded, the
il velopnicnt of it would exercise n
beneficial effect not only nn Vancouver Island but on the while provinco.' If [a company can-be found,
therefore, willing to undertake the
con '.ruction and operation of a railway to the' north-west extremity of
Vancouver Island, we shall be disposed to treat it generously and aid
it by a liberal bonus of public land.
Fruit Culture.
In-onr issue of yesterday we drew
attention to the efforts being nnvde
to secure a proper exhibit of British
Columbia fruits und roots at the
Colonial exhibition in London. It
is quito unfortunate tlmt the collee
lion had' to bo made nt this season
of the year. Cherries, which flourish so wonderfully in this climate,
aro now entirely out of season; and
so arecurrants, gooseberries, raspberries, and other small fruits. Plums
are almost gone, nnd early varieties
of pears and peaches are likewise
either past or too ripe for transmission to London. It is only in fall
and winter fruits that we can make
any' show at all; but many of tho
late varieties are now far from perfect. Vegetable growth with us
continues through the whole of September and October, and sometimes
eveiMhto December. "Winter apples
aiid jtlums have still about two
months in which to increase in size
and petfr*t their color and Savor.
In.this.respect we are placed at considerable disadvantage in comparison* with the provinces farther east.
In the east vegetation is more rapid
because, the growing season is warmer-arid shorter.' Fruits and vegetables in the east, therefore, are
much further advanced now than
in this'province, and will make a
much better show. Besides,.our exhibit will necessarily have to be prepared sooner by at least a week than
the exhibit of the eastern provinces,
because the eastern exhibit need not
be gathered until ours has gone forward. The same disadvantage presents itself with respect to roots,
which are now in vigorous growth.
Wo have no doubt but Mr. Jessop
and the other gentlemen who have
charge of this matter will take
means'' to'Oxplain these Circumstances, but thousands of people who
visit the exhibition will probably go
away with a false impression of the
fruits and roots of British Columbia. Since the opening of the
C. P. K. a great many eastern people have visited our province and
expressed astonishment nt both the
quantity and quality of our fruit;
and it is the general opinion that
this remarkable productiveness could
be made the source of great wealth
to tlie country. It is admitted that
fruit will not thrive in the North
west, or 'even in Manitoba; and as
that region is being rapidly settled
up there will shortly come from beyond the mountains a large and
increasing demand for British Columbia fruits. The practical question for the people of this province
to consider is how to meet that demand! Hitherto very little attention has been given to fruit culture
in this province, principally because
there lias been a very limited market). Our orchards are few in number, limited in extent, and have not
rqjei.Vf)dl .the care nnd attention
necessary to success, There oan be
no doubt that we - shall be able to
supply1 the people Oast of the mountain! with fruit if we take the
trouble to grow iind ship it. . This
is the nearest point of supply for
them, and it is in every way adapted ttlt, successful fruit growing,
Mr. T. C. Well., Chemist and Druggist, BoH-eblborne, Ont., writesj "Northrop Jt Lyman's Vogetable Discovery
andpytpeptlo Cure sells well, and gives,
the best of satisfaction for all diseases of
tlw blood." It nover (ails to root out all
diseases of the system, cares Dyspepsia,

Tbe License Question.
Editor Colombia*,-.—It may not be
amiss to remind your readers (most of
them, are probably already aware) that
the licensing court meets in tbis oity tomorrow morning at. 10 o'clock,. Applications have been made for the granting of
two new, licenses, against which protests
will be presented by leading temperance
organisations and religious bodies, and it
is to be hoped that right-thinking people
generally, who cau spare the time, will
take the trouble to protest by their presence against the granting of any mote
licenses. Despite the absurd contention
that, .because some houses are already
licensed we should license all who apply,
there are good and sufficient reasons why
no more licenses should be granted; 11.
It Ib not in our power just now to abolish
existing licenses, while we have the
power, if we will only us. it, to prevent
the issuo of new licenses; and temperance
people loyal to principle will not hesitate
to make a point against the traffio on
every possible occasion. 2. The more
licensed: houses there are, the more competition there will be in the business, and
the more Competition the more un'sorn*
pnlous will the dealers naturally become,
as to the quality of their liquors, the
means used for the manufacture of drunkards, and the carrying on of illegal and
nefarious practices in connection with
the "ligitimttlt" licensed traffic. 3. At
the present epoch in our history, when
we look forward to a considerable influx
of population, and naturally hope that it
may be of a desirable class, any addition
to our licensed liquor houses would be
eminently discreditable to our oity and
injurious to pur prospects. - :-;

■tokooN, Sept. 13.—The Scottish
Protestant Alliance will meet to discuss the- reply of, Lord Rsndolph
Churchill to their protest against the
appointment of Henry Matthews as
home secretary, -whioh was brought on
the ground that he was a Roman Oath-
olio. Rev. James Patton, director of
the alliance, has addressed a letter to
Lord Randolph Churchill in Which he
sajs:' " Yooj have penned an Insolent
reply to a respectful public document.
Although you are now a oabihet minister, we observe with astonishment
and regret that you have not laid aside
those weapons of abuse with which
you. tomahawked your way to power.
It is a national calamity when men
pitchforked into high positions aro
destitute bf decent manners." Patton
concludes his letter by saying the alliance founded ita protest Upon the
same grounds as those upon which the
exclusion of Roman Catholics from
the throne is founded:

inaccurate, and that Dublin executive

1886 show that the reduction in prices
in Ireland is leas than ni Kngland and
Scotland, ranging from 10 to 15 per

Lord Randolph Churchill will deny

will take place on Friday, Gladstone
has privately announced that he will
roturn to London on Saturday, and
that ho hopes tn ULo part in the debate on Monday.   It ia understood
that he will support Parnell's bill, and
his promised support is already rallying Gladstonitcs. Unionist whips have
sent aii appeal to unionist members in
the country to return to Londoli and
vote against the bill. The government also insists upon the recall of
absent conservatives. An attempt to
curtail the debate to one night will be
in vain, and it will probably extend
over four nights.

a legislative chameleon. Parliament is

speculation without modern precedent,,

The Confederation UR.
The annual report of. this solidly pros-
fierous Canadian institution will be found
n another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
-thoroughly justify the ecomiuma which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting, the soundness of tho finances of
the Company is tho fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims—whioh in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of.. The hss ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thore is a surplus of $282,189
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase In the assetB in the last year
was $260,390, So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:*—"To keep Its balance
sheet right aud avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

as many others havo already dono. A
contract has been entered into by tho
delegates by which 50,000 acres of

" Russia'will recognize Bulgarian regency on condition that no acts ot vio-
lence be committed. Russia .advises
that publio opiiBoh-in Bahjaria be allowed tu calm down hefore a new
pride, ko' taken to the Bulgarian
throne. The Russian agent has not
yet communicated the czar's reply to
-the Bulgarian-government, because the
rejationi between the present Bulgarian? ministers and' himself are very
strained. During - the sitting of the
national assembly to-day several of the
deputies proposed that the. Bulgarian
goVWnnient "send a "telegram lo IW
czar requesting hint, to communicate,
with the Bulgarian government direct
instead of through the agent. A German banking house has declined a
proposal from the Bulgarian government for raising*, loan-for that country.

London, Sept. 13.—fho Irish loyal
mid patriotic union hns issued a pam-
phlot on the Irish question for tho uso
of the members ofi tho house of commons and press. "The status of Irish
tenant farmers" says the pamphlet
"hus within tbo past sixteen years undergone a marked amelioration owing
to the various remedial statutes. There
has certainly been a fall in prices,
but, everything considered, thore is
nothing exceptionally bad in tho Irish
agitation. The Irish enjoy greater advantages of tenure than other peoplo
with improved methods and thero is
reason to look to'the future with .confidence." Hore figures are quoted to
show that full advantage is taken of tho
right to sell interests in holdings. The
pamphlet continues, "Laying "sido
rhetorical bosh it is necessary to state
tho actual facts regarding evictions by
tlio land act of 1881. A tenant cannot possibly be evicted unless ho refuses to pay his rents or does not comply with curtain statutory conditions.
Ejectment for non-payment of rout
cannot bo brought for less than a
year's rent, actually due. If an ojoct-
ment bo brought a tenant may redeem
property at any timo within li mouths
after tho execution of the writs or may
within the same poriod sell tho tenancy,
aftor tlio writ has beon executed, to
anybody and tho phrohaser may ro-
dcen'i thd proporty. Many other advantages are possessed by tenants,
therefore eviction is dangerous and
costly to landholders and is practiced
iu only oxtromo casos. If a year's rout
should fall duo in September or November the landlord does not get decree until tho January sessions and
six months more must elapse bofore
ho can gain possession of the land.
The landlord is then-liable to the ton-
ant for cropB, so that nearly 2 years
must elapse before lie can fully recover
his tenancy. In 1884 Irish holdipgs
numbered- 505,254. Evictions during
the , first 6 months of 1886 numbered
only 2007, a vast majority boing for'
moro than ono year's arrears. Carefully preparod returns show that there
were only 860 casea of absolute removal,
many having beon re-admitted and in
fact many of the 860 were reinstated
as care-takers. An additional important fact is that, by rules in all eiisos
the ejectment judge is able to grant
Buch stay of execution ub under circumstances he cotiBiders reasonable.
'Similm';em>rses being frequent in similar courts regarding money subscribed
for agitation it is needless to remind
the public that nationalists boast tliat
the neediest and poorest people, have
shown. tjUdt sympathy witli tho agitation "by tne extent and continuance of'
their contributions. It is needless
hore to enquire iuto the truth of matters or to enquire how much compulsion- wee-necessary in obtaining the
money. All that is required is that
hard, stern facts should bo rated carp-,
fully. Tho land league was started in
187!»,~'it3' avowed object beiiig to assist
the Irish tenantry, and the firat practical- move was to commonco drawing
subscriptions. The following figures
aro taken from Parnellite prints: From
.October 10th, 1870, until tlio government BUpprcssod the league in October," 1881, the land league' received
from Great Britain and Iroland £17,-
804.- jDuriug the same period there
was subscribed to tho "fair trial" fund
£1,024, and for the relief of tho distress £942. Tho lust named fund received from all sources £00,072, of
which £10,000 was diverted to Parnell's political fund and the balance,
£35,658, is. entirely unaccounted for.
Parnell's defence fund amounted to
£17,061, the total recoived being £20,-
461, and there is a balanco of £8,461
unaccounted for. There were subscribed to S. Kenny and Father Shoohy
£2,600, and to sundry funds for suspects, £2,500. Tho land loaguc was
succeeded by the ladiea' league, of
which tho prisoner's subscription committee recoived from Ireland iind
Groat Britain a total of'£39,176.
This committeo gavo placo to another,
which met at Dublin Mansion HouBo,
appealing for relief for evicted tenants, and which' > received £8,600.
Then came Paruell's testimonial fund,
to which the Irish at home subicribed
£33,808 of the £40,000. The National League commenced in 1883, and has
up .to the present timo received $23,-
640 from Irish branches, concurrent
with exactions levied by thc League.
Othor sums were collected of which
there is ltd record, for the defOnce of
prisoners and ..expenses of publio
meetings, &c. Egan howevor estimates Die amount at a large figure.
Ho declared to a correspondent of an
American paper three years ago that
such items -for three years early in
Octobor, 1882, did not fnll far short of
£80,000, and, said he, wo may estimate similar expenses for the succeeding four years at not less than tliat
amount. Egan also includes in subscriptions for patriotic purposes £25,-
000 for Dublin exhibition. Finally,
amounts subscribed, up to the present
moment to tho Irish party fund is
£'6,5112. To sum up, Ireland's tribute
of hard cash to the Parnellite exchequer sinco the founding of tho land
league, in Ootober, 18711 to {the present timo, amounts to £300,731, or
£52,000 per annum. It is difficult in
the face of Bavings' bank roturns to
contend that tho Irish peoplo are now
in imminent financial danger, for as a
matter of fact there is now a larger
reservo of monoy to-day to tlie credit
of Irish tenants than in any preceding
year. Growth in this reBpect has beon
continuous. In 1849 savings' banks
deposits amounted to £1,200,000 and
iu 1885 to £4,300,000. These nre
popular banks with the poorer classes of
depositors. Alongside of the repeated
assertions of the poverty-etrioken condition of ..the Irish aid their inability to pay rent, it is interesting to
note that, while tho expenditure for
intoxicants has fallen much in Great
Britain during recent, years, it; hua
appreciably incroasod in Irolund. Taking into account tho diminished population in 1885, the consumption of
beor and spirits shows an aggregate increaso of £341,384, while .if 1884 be
compared with 1880 the inorease shows
tho enormous total of $750,000. A
coincidence worth mentioning is that
the reduction in rente uiider land act
of 1881 was more than equalled by tho
increased consumption of beer hnd
spirits in the same period. Finally,
on authority of tho British Agricultural Qitseik, in England ronts aro increased 33 per cent, between 1884 and
1880, in Wales 34 percent, in Scotland 40 por cont., while in Iroland tho
rental has decreased within tlint period
and Wiis further citt'Mrti by tlio laud
not of 1881,"
