Dammar Morning, Stay I, l»M.
Current Events nnd Opinions,
The days of a man's life nn thrte
score years and ten, as the wisdom
of the psalmist found, and it has
heen the world's common experience
that strength of body and power of
mind are. broken at that uge, and
the man passes from the sphere of
respeoted dominion into the realm
of indulgent memory. The exceptions to the great rule of being, the
all but inexorable law of nature,
are so few, so far apart, they tower
into view' as miracles of destiny,
awakening the wonder and commanding the admiration of the
world. The Premier of Englnud,
not lirst in ollice alone, but foremost in character, in iniiuence of
personality, in mental authority, in
political understanding among the
men of his time, is one of the most
remarkable of tliese noble anomalies. He has over-reached the scriptural limit by seven full years of
labor; and now, with the white
mists of envious time ubout him,
and tho beckoning shadows of eternity a little beyond him, he is yet
the master spirit of his people. Iu
the speech with which he determined for Ireland the right of homo
rule, so long claimed in vain, William Ewart Gladstone at once
crowned a brilliant career with immortal honor, and proved himself
to be as virile in thought, us potent
in argument, as convincing in conclusions, and as profound iu apprehension ns when, with the prophetic
vision of wisdom, he twenty years
ago predicted what advancing civilization has since approved. Aside
from the aim and purpose of that
world reverberating speech — and
there were required moral courage
and mental health, sound judgment
and shrewd deliberation to deftly
handle principles and ideas that
smote upon the prejudices of trad
tion and the custom of centuries
—there are a logical force and vigor,
a rhetorical elegance ami grace,
and a judioial fairness of discussion
that, make this one of the most
striking and effective orations ever
delivered in that chamber whose
walls have echoed tho eloquence of
a Burke, a Sheridan a Chatham, a
Fox, a Pitt, or an O'Connell. Whatever may be the result from the
action of parliament, whether Mr.
Gladstone is sustained or again deserted, us be has heen thrico before
when advocating a strango truth,
there can be but one impression of
this speech, one opinion of the su
perb statesman who delivered it,
and these will be a tribute to his
unimpaired genius and his imperishable fame. He begun by defining
tho political situation with a skill
and completeness that did thorough
justice to both parties to the great
problem of government, making ad-
.missions that in no wise weakened
his plea and presenting conditions
that did not in the least imperil his
case, though in each case his theories were revolutionary. Ho declared coercion a failure, which the
English could not dispute. He
claimed the right of the minority
to protection, which the Irish could
only admit. He asserted the fault
of the administrative system of
Ireland to be thnt its spring and
source of notion was English, a
proposition thnt umounted to an
axiom; nnd so throughout, iu n manner the most diplomatic but also
the most convincing, he passed
from one phase of the momentous
problem to another, masterfully,
irresistibly, magnificently, having
his forces so well in hnnd, his arguments so obviously construed, that
his most radical propositions were
received as tho logic of unassailable
wisdom. Many of his utterances
on this famous occasion will become
proverbs of future polity. "It is
sometimes necessary not only that
good laws should be passed, but
that they should be passed by the
pro*jor nersons." "The passing of
many good laws is not enough in
cases' where tho strong instincts of
the people, distinct marks of character, situation, and history require
not only that these laws sliull be
good, hut that they should proceed
from congenial and native sources,
and that besides being good laws
they should be Iheir own laws."
"The concession of local self-government is not the way to sap and
impair, but to strengthen and consolidate Unity." This speech, so
wisely 'committing the government
to a new courso, so eloquently defining a condition thnt the logic of
events declares to be an inevitable-
result, reminds one of the prophecy
of I860, when Mr. Gkulstono spoke
upon thn reform bill thnt twenty
years later arose from many defeats
to become a law. "You can not
light against the future. Time is
on our sido, Tlie great Social forces
which move onward in their might
und majesty, and which the tumult
of 6111* debates does not for n moment impede or disturb—those groat
social forces nre against you; and
the banner which wo now carry in
Columbian.

this light, though perhaps at some
moments it may droop over our
sinking heads, yet it soon again will
float in the eye of heaven, and it
will be borne by the firm hands of
the united people of the three
kingdoms, perhaps hot to an easy,
but to a certain and not fur oil'
Victory." That for franchise. So
with other measures proposed by
him, certain victory in tbe end,
whatever trials and defeats intervened. The bill now offered to
parliament iB but a formulation of
opinions born of calm, wise, deliberate regard of contending elements
nnd operating principles, not the
hasty notions of partisan interest
or factional prejudice,' Mr. Ghidstono hus been no less celebrated
for his blameless life, his unswerving conscientiousness, his sound appreciation of justice, than for his
eloquence, his vast learning, his
great powers of mind; and in this last
speech the world was given new and
splendid proof that neither his virtue nor his ability have suffered
from the taint of timo.—Chicago

and those on tho north and south shalt
be chords to parallel of latitude; each
section shall be divided into quarter
sections of 100 acrea, more or less,
with an allowance for roads of three
acres each; in the survey of a township, tho deficiency or surplus resulting from convergence of meridians
shall be divided equally, between all
the quarter sections involved",* and the
north mul south error in closing on
the correction lines from the north
or south shall be allowed in the ranges
of thu quarter suctions adjoining, and
north or south respectively of the said
correction lines; the dimensions and
area of irregular quarter sections shall,
in nil cased, be returned by thu surveyor at their actual measurements
and contents; to facilitate the description for letters patent of loss than a
quarter section, every section shall bo
supposed to be divided into quarter
sections, or forty and three-quarters
acres; the survoy may be ordered of
publio highways, and for that purpose
private roads and lands may be entered; on such survey being made the
lieutenant-governor shall be notified af
the fact, and such highway shall become
the property of the province, and no

thereon, as well as to tako any ifravel,
timber, stone or other material required for the construction of any bridge
or highway, and also to enter upon any
lands for the purpose of cutting any
drains that may bo thought necessary.
.1 Sensation.
Tokonto, Ont., Apr. 17.—The citizens have beeu stupidly hoaxed by the
publication this rooming in the News
of George Washington's memorable
farewell address, slightly altered and
purporting to be the farewell address
of Sir John Macdonald. It is datod
Ottawa, April 10th, and takes up five
columns. It is unnecessary to say thnt
it created a sensation hero, wliich,
however, --uickly subsided wheu its
true nature became known.
Tho secret of tho News' hoax ahout
the resignation of Sir John came out
this afternoon. Gable dispatches were
forwarded to London, England, from
this eity this morning, confirming the
report. In consequence it has greatly
depressed Canada securities. At 2:30
this afternoon the following cable was
received from London:
"All Canadian securities dropped SO
to 60 per cent, on con fin-nation of Sir
Juhn Macduiiald's resignation."
The originators of the hoax, it is behoved, are Toronto street brokers,
whoso . object waa the depressing of
Canadian Northwest land and Canadian
Pacific shares. Scores of telegrams
were received here to-day front leading
men in Ottawa, saying that there is
not ono iWord of truth in the News'
statements.

A tool steel is beinij produced nt a
■tool works In Philadelphia, which, it
is claimed, possesses remarkable qualities. Its chief peculiarity consists in
its being self*hardening. No process
of hardening in wator or other liquids,
nor of subsequent tempering, is necessary in its use. A tool from thia stool
is shaped over the anvil, as with ordinary steel.' When the tool ii forged it
is laid aside to cool in the air. When
quite cold it Is found to hnvo taken a
hardness exceeding that of any steel
hardened by the usual process of immersion imfater or brftie. * Su.hard is
it thnt the teeth of the beat Hie will bo
turned by a single stroke noross it, and
the odj'e of a finely tempered cold-
chisel completely destroyed in an attempt to cut it, not the slightest impression being felt on tbe steel.

Salnrday Morning, Hay 1, num.
We are indebted to the hon.
inister of agriculture for a copy of
ie report on agricultural colleges
resented by Mr. William Saunders,
'. E. S. C. Mr. Saunders seems to
ave been most favorably impressed
rith the benefits arising from these
Stabliahments, especially the one
onducted by tlie government of
hitiirio. In many respects this
institution surpasses any similar one
n the continent, mid its fame has
teen such as to attract students
rom the United States and from
iurope. The report recommends
lie establishment of 3 Dominion
igricultural colleges: One for On-
:*rio and Quebec; one for Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick aud Prince
Edwards Island : and one for the
provinces west of Ontario.
Much speculation is being in-
lulged in respecting the fate of Mr,
Gladstone's scheme for the paciti-
mtion of Ireland. Two estimates
,(the vote on the second reading of
the bill have been made, but they
differ materially from each other.
One gives a majority of 26 for the
bill, and the other 24 against it. It
is, perhaps, a pity that the vote
should be taken before the scheme
has been fully considered in all its
bearing. When first proposed it
came near taking the nation's
breath away, but the more it is considered and debated the more will it
gain on the sympathies and judgment of the people. The vote will
be looked forward to with much
interest, but we are fully convinced
that, sooner or later, some form of
home rule will be conceded to Ireland.    ______^_^__
Excursion Rates.
During the week ending 17th
April over 9,000 people arrived in
California from the east. This is
one result of th-e^ow railway rates.
The wonderful attractions of the
Pacific coast were never ao-Widely
known as they now are, and the low
railway tariff afforded an oppor
Unity much wished for by thousands to become acquainted with
these attractions by .actual experience. It is believed that the railways really lost no money by making cheap rates, for the traffic has
been immense, and travel will continue abnormally large long after
the fares have gone up. Some such
expedient as this-might be tried
with excellent results by the Canadian Pacific Railway when it has
been completed. The resources and
attractions of this province are not
creations of the imagination, but
matters of unquestionable fact It
is so very much more desirable as a
place of residence tliat people from
the east who once find out its excellencies by personal experience will
most likely become permanent residents, Every permanent resident
added to the province means a new
customer for the C. P. B., and the
fruits of a low passenger tariff will
quickly be seen in largely increased
patronage.
Misrepresenting Again.
Our local cotemporary finds fault
with   Thk Columbia* because it
objected to Mr. Homer's speech on
the resolution relating to the railway
lands iu this province, and insinuates that the reason of our adverse
criticism is that the hon. provincial
secretary proposes running for the
Dominion house at next election.
We do not know what the provincial secretary intends to do in this
matter, but we think  it  very unlikely that he will withdraw from
the position he  uow holds.   Our
attitude towards Mr. Homer is not
affected by the provincial secretary's
plans at all. This journal supported
Mr. Hotnor in his candidature and
lias continued to support and defend
him since his election, even at times
when then was a general disposition manifested in this city to con-
demn him on this very question of
lands.   0«r »«pport haB been given
honestly and independently, but it
wiis quito impossible for us to defend his speech on Mr. .Shakespeare's
motion.   TM' speeeh is not in accordance with public sentiment in
the district Mr. Homer represents,
and fo fo entirely out of harmony
wi£ the pre^iwur utWiwicw of the
QutlHim itself.    But consistency
is, perhaps,' not an rieiiWht which
ever enters into the calculations of
our cotemporary.   While wo take
exception most  decidedly to Mr.
Homer's speech on this occasion, it
does not follow by any means that,
we have any wish for ins retirement   He has done (nany things
for the district, and we are not sure
that hii piece oould be filled by a
mon tffldtot reprwentfttive. |
Power of (lie Boycott.
No sohemo of modern invention
bus played a more important part
in social and commercial affairs
lately than the boycott. This instrument of tyranny has been
brought to such perfection that it is
scarcely possible for any person to
escape who comes within reach of its
operations. Hundreds of merchants
and business men have been ruined
by it. When a boycott is ordered
by a large and influential organization, as a rule the victim may as
well pack up his otluets at once and
seek new fields of operation. Every
person who deals with a merchant
against whom a boycott has been
pronounced is himself immediately
boycotted, and one cannot foretell
where the thing will stop. This is
oue of the dangerous instrunto.its
by which the workingtneu's unions
have lately armed themselves in
their attempts to forco employers to
accept such terms as they demand.
It has been used with groat success
in several instances, but sometimes
tyranny which presents itself under
the guise of liberty overshoots the
mark. There is in the city of Now
York a woman named Esther Gray
who keeps a small bakery on Hudson street, in her establishment
she employs ■*> bakers. A few days
ago this woman was waited on by a
deputation from a baker's union who
required her to order her men to
join the union. Mrs. Gray sent for
her."' bakers and asked them if they
wished to join. They said no; they
were perfectly satisfied to remain as
they were. Because she refused to
compel these men to join a union
contrary to their own wish the deputation informed her that her place
was boycotted, und she woilld have
to pay $25 a duy for the expenses
of the boycott. Tins was decidedly
more than the woman could stand.
Her martini blood was up, and she
quickly armed herself with a broomstick and hustled thc boycotters out
of her premises. But the boycott
went bn. Men from the bakers'
union stood in front of her shop
distributing notices warning the
public that the place was boycotted
and must not be patronized under
penalty. All grocers in the neighborhood were advised that if they
purchased brein' from hor they
would also become the victims of
the boycott. The outlook for Mrs.
Cray was decidedly unpleasant; and
in all probability she would have
boen forced either to discharge her
non-union men or close her business,
if it had not been for the help
afforded by Sympathizing friends.
She was fortunate enough to possess
friends among the aristocracy of
New York, and when the circumstances became known it was determined that she should not be permitted to sutler from tho unjust
action of the boycotters. Rich
people from all parts of the city became interested and sent Mrs. Gray
large checks for bread to be distributed at the hospitals or among the
poor, Some sent $50, somo §100,
and some even larger sums to be
applied in this way, and tho little
bakery on Hudson street began to
do a business such as it had never
before known or even hoped for. In
this case the boycotters were foiled,
for public sympathy became aroused
so thoroughly that their purpose to
ruin the business of Esther Gray
was made the means of bringing
her unexpected gains. No doubt
there are grievances among the
working men, but the boycott is
probably an instrument of far great
er tyranny than any they themselves
have suffered. Their application of
this instrument has shown that
their operations are governed by
neither justice nor common sense.
Labor organizations may become
the means of great good to the
working men if properly conducted,
but as they now exist there is room
to question whether tlm good they
accomplish is greater than .the harm
done in securing it.

It is stated that the steamers running tn Vancouver are to leave .Victoria on tho mornings of Tuesday,
Thursday and Sunday. Surely this
must: be a mistake. Why should the
Sabbath be regularly desecrated both
at Victoria ahd Vancouver? Why
should thero be a steamer on Sunday
and nono nn Saturday ?
The "constantly tired-out" feeling! bo
often experienced Is the result of impoverished blood, and consequent enfeebled

qualities. The system being thus Invig-

time thu outraged bridegroom made
peace by inviting the enemy into his
house and providing abundant refreshments. It is said thnt both bride and
bridegroom have been there twice before.
T .Congratulations,—One of the benefits of the ceremony of turning the
first sod on the branch line is a very
cheap and extensive advertisement of
thu fact that thia city is to be connected speedily with tho Canadian
Pacific Railway. The affair hus been
telegraphed over the whole continent,
and evon the people Of the North-west
have been advised nt it as far oa the
Rocky Mountains. Yesterday the
mayor recoived the following despatch
from the lieutenant-governor of tho
North-west territory, dated at Regina,
April 30: "Juat seen account of turning of first snd of your railway. Accept tho congratulations of an old
friend.: E. Dewiiney."

Riuht op Way. -Some difltyijty, has
arisen between the city and'the'Dominion government respecting the
right of way through the lands lying
in front of the penitentiary. It has
beon tor some time understood that
the federal authorities would allow a
right uf way free through that property.
Afterwards, tho Dominion government
agent threatened to apply tor an injunction to stop railway work because
no instructions had been sent from
Ottawa. Ifl nuawer to a telegram from,
the; mayor on Monday,' Air. Homer'
telegraphed that tho matter had been
ull arranged, and the right of way had
been conceded nt a "nominal rent."
Mr. Trutch n-.# advises tho mayor
that the. '-nominal rent" iB $50 a year
for 00 years! Instead of a nominal
rent, this is a very full rent, and it is
extremely doubtful whether tho corporation would be justified in paying it.

Fruit Trees.—By reference to the
advertisement of Mr. G. W. Henry, of
Port Hammond, it will bo suen thst
au excellent opportunity ia offered lo
persons who wish to go iuto fruit raising. Mr. Henry goes east shortly to
select a Btock for hia own nursery ut
Port Hammond, and he utter-- at the
aame time to fill any orders that may
be entrusted to him for trees, and
select thom himself. Thero is no question about fruit-growing in this province. It grows nlmoat without cure;
nnd if good atock is used the;ioturus
will be moat satisfactory. In the course
of a few years British Columbia ought
to furnish enough fruit for the northwest, where it cannot be successfully
grown in many places. Persons intending tn get trees should ruad Mr.
Henry a advertisement.

KILLING TWO BIROS WITH ONE STONE!
(Reported (iir tlie (.'otnmlilun.j
Chilli wii a<.k, April 27.—On Monday night a musical aud literary outer*
tainuiont whb given in tho now hall
now iu course of erection hero by lhe
enterprising tirtu nf fleudersoii Bros.,
and which ia to ho formally opened hy
tho Oddfellows about the 20th of
March. Tlio programme'on Monday
night was well carried uut aud tho
pieces weru greatly appreciated by thu
lari'o audienco presont. Just before
tho last piece was sung, the chairman
said it had occurred to several persons
present that this would bu an excellent opportunity to obtain nu expression of opinion from tho people of
Chilliwhack ou some political questions. Not hmg ngo an agitation had
risen in thu city nf Now Westminster
about the branch railway, tind during
the oxciienieiit the people of that, city
had taken upon themselves to offer a
public insult to the two representatives
of the district. As thero wero a largo
number of voters present, it might be
proper f<>r them tu express an opinion
respecting this matter. In order to
obtain such an expression the following resolution hnd beon proposed:
"He it resolved by this assembly that
we fully endorse the present government
in their operations and disbursements,
and we entertain tho highest regard for
our representative, the Hon, John Robson, and we most heartily request htm
to become a candidate for re-election hb
a representative of this district in tho
next parliament. Be it also resolved
that wo consider the action of the people
of "New Westminster in burning our
members iu effigy quite uncalled for and
partaking of the-nature of the rash actiou
of a hot-bendod mob."
The-* resolution was moved by Mr,
G.  R." Ashwell and seconded by Mr.
he thought the .bhnuu for the.railway
difficulty rested entirely with tjie New
Westminster opunoil, and not with the
representatives. Tlio action of* tho
.people uf that city looked very liko a
political dodge gotten up on the eve of
a general election for the purposo of
injuring our representatives, . . Mr.
Mr. Chadsey was loudly cheered,
Mr. D. McGillivray took the floor
nud said ho thought it was entirely out
uf place to spring a political question
upon au nssomiily gathered for quite
a different,purpose. We were interfering in a matter which wo did not
understand. He thought the people
of New Westminster were quito justified in what they hnd done,
The chairman (Mr. J. C. Henderson) thought tho resolution wus entirely in order. It would bo most
diiiicult to | bring together as large un
UBBeuibly as hnd gathered to-night
when every otio was busy with work.
The district had been grossly insulted
by tho people of Now Westminster in
burning our representatives in offigy.
Mr. G. R, Ashw-'ll said ho fully endorsed the resolution, In his opinion
tho action of thu people of Nuw Westminster city in burning tho district
members was entirely out of place. In
reply to Mr. MoGillivray ho considered it quito proper to bring ihe matter forward at this meeting.
Mri D.'-' MoCriie ' being culled upon
aaid ho fully undoraod the resolution.
Ho believed the people wero perfectly
satisfied with .lohn Itobsnn us their
representative, and so long as thu doctors stand by him tho peoplo of New
Westminster need not trouble themselves about liim. Hu considered that
tho peoplo of this district enjoyed a
very groat privilege' in being represented by the provincial secretary.
Bo would sny hero that hu wisliod it
to be distinctly understood lhat ho hnd
declined to accept the invitation given
to him aomo time ago to stand for
election as a representative of this
district at tho approaching contest.
Circumstances would not allow him to
do that; but he would' suggest thnt wo
aro entitled to elect ono representative
from this part of the district. Ho
would not bo. quite so selfish as the
people of New "Westminster, but would
be satisfied if one representative from
this section of tho district was elected
with Mr. John Robson, We were not
working machines run for the benefit
of Now Westminstor (loud applabso).
Ho would heartily support nuy proper
candidate from tho lower end of ttiis
district who would support the government. Tho district waa perfectly competent . to look nfter itself, and provide
its own representatives. Mr. McCrae
ant down amid great applause.
Mr, A. C. Wells wub next called
upon nnd. suid he quite agreed with tho
resolution, and after making soine appropriate remarks which were received
with applause, Mr. McGillivray again
took the Hour. He said ho hnd nothing ugninst the Hon. Jno. Robson.
He had seen him a few days ngo in
Victoria and he (Mr. Robson) then
told him he would be in tho district
shortly and would explain everthing.
He (Mr. Mc,Gillivray)said Mr. Robson
would bo elected.
Mr, MeCrao said that peoplo of New
Westminster , might as well burn tho
effigies of every member of the house
aa ffibae ofJbttb representatives.
Tho resolution was then put and
carried without a dissenting voice, and
when tho applause from nearly 200
peoplo had subsided the entertainment
was closed by singing the National
Anthem.

Commerce ofthe Paclflc,
Spenking on tho admission of Wash
ington Territory us a state, Senator
Morgan made a most elaborate address, of which the following extructs
will he of interest to our ruudurs: Iu
ten years' time tbu Canadian Pacific
Railway will havu established itself
and its lines of trofBc; throughout'the
countries of the Pacilic, uud wu shall
tind lhat it will snatch from tho Ray
of San; Francisco half, or it tuny .be.
more than naif, of its trado. ' We
must hare a competitor theru; We
must have somebody there at least to
divide with Great Uritaiu the honors
aud the wealth also to be accumulated
from hor commercial adventures in
that ocean. Now, Mr. President, I
wish to say a few more words about
our traflic in tho Pacilic Ocean. I
think there are riot enough of. the
senators - in tin's b .dy who eonceiir
tlieiuselvos nbout this matter, if they
will allow mu to Bay so. They either
undcrcatimatu it or they have so much
else to think about and to do that
thuy do not ciiusider this Rivat question. But do wo not seo all the on-
lightened nation* of thihenrih moving
up in competition thruugh the Pacilic
Ocean and taking this island aud that
nud thc other, commencing, with tho
Plullipine Islunds, having a strife
about them, then coining on by the
Caroline Islands, until thoy get to
S.uuiia, where our former honorable
socrotary of stato, who now occupies a
scat in the senate, put himself to
great irouble to negotiate a most -*x-
collent treaty for the United States.
Under that treaty we should have
the advantaged of a port of our own
thoro if we will provide the means
for coaling our ships and whatever
else might be nucessary for their replenishing whilo they were out upon
the cruises thnt carry them from
fifteen to thirty days t'roin shoro.
Wc find the world frequently agitated
by disputes boWeou Spain and Germany, and even hetweefi Great Brit
ain and Germany, in respeot of tho
occupation of inuousideralilo islands iu
tho Pacific Ocean, islands that, when
we were boys, we road about as [daces
that woro tlie habitation* of cannibals. Now these little Islands are
matters of groat consideration with the
most eminent of foreign powers. Why
is ali this? It is because these nations
are measuring their strength onu with
nnother, imt merely for tiie purposo
of having their (lag lo float upon
conquered terrilory or newly acquired
territory, but fnr thu benefit of commerce, for its protection and for its
advancement. Commerce it is that
rules ihis world at this hour. Armies
and navies nre mere servants of commerce today. Thc commercial men
of tho world to-day have thu c-mU'ol
of it. Vou cannot mention now a
man, whether he is n kins or a subject, who hns got sutticiiuit military
renown in this world to make him a
dangcroqa element ju , politics — ii-at,
ono.     No nation Wrs nny king be*
look to lhe commercial power of nations; we look to the merchants, to
the diplomatists, to thu statesmen
uf tho different nations to seo whether
or not we shall be able in thu future
to measure our progress with. them.
Those nro the considerations tliat how
influence mankind. With a fore-
thom/ht that was worthy of one of the
greatest statesmen this country has
produced wu obtainod Alaska, and yet
thero was then an outburst of mingled
indignation and scorn., through many
sections of tho United Rtates that we
should have given $7,000,000,1 believe it wua, for the purchaso of Alaska. There are the fisheries of the
Pacilic Ocuan, boundless, exhauatless.
There is the power of supplying food
from the tea on that coaat and the
adjacent' islands, which, if we hnd
possessed the like power in Labrador
aud in Newfoundland on this coast,
we | should have been a very much
richer people to-day than we are, and
far] more powerful. Then we commence nt Vancouver Bay, the Straits
of Puca, with Washington Territory,
and we run down to Mexico—a vast
coaat with four good inlets upun it,
Puget Bound, Columbia River, the Bay
of San Francisco, mid the Bay of Ban
Diego.
Beyond that we have fraternal relations,! I may call them very friendly
relations, with Hawaii, that outpost of
the aea which stands centrally between
us nud China, Japan, and Australia. If
we were deprived of our friendly relations with that group tif small islands
W0 should bu bereft of very much tbat
in the future will be of -great benefit
to thc people of the United States,
But Great Britain haa established her-
foU throughout the world. Com*
moncing ut the mouth of the Red
Sea, she cornea un around tho Indian
coast to Hongkong, and along the
const of South America. She haa
got her naval establishments, her na*
vul stations, where ahe can send her
ships and supply them with coal and
.provisions from place to place. Bho
can go to Ban Francisco with a full
supply of coal, and all the men that
nre necessary to man a ship and with
overy equipment necessary, quito aa
easily na she could go from Liverpool
or any other place on the English coast
tu St. Petersburg. Sho ia prepared all
over the ocean with depots, places of
supply where she ia never wanting iu
the power tu do all that she wants to
do, or all that she can possibly do, with
her nrmy and her navy, against any
power of the world. I do not know
that we shall ever get to that stato of
exaltation, I .will call it, in respect of
this groat government and its control among the nations of the earth.
I wish we could mako the same boast
that Great Britain can make, I should
have no fear of the liberties of this
people, not the slightest, if we had all
the power on the sea in foreign countries that Great! Urituin has got.* I
would feel far more comfortable than I
do in reaped to our ability to discharge
our obligations to our own citizens
when thoy are abroad. We have a
splendid coast with many deep inlets
and bays without fortifications, and
perhaps thoy will remain so for a great
while. Perhaps the world will be wilting to let us alone until we choose to
interfere with them in somo way. I
do not know. It may be, however,
that the jealousy of our inoHMsing
riches may inspire thom aome*or "tnese
daya to interrupt our peace and kill
our commerce. Then they will havo
nothing. to do but to shake their fills'
ut ns and it will depart from the seas.
They may do it, and will do it, if we
make no prevision for ita security. We
have a line of picket poata, commencing
at Labrador,, Newfoundland, tq tbe
Bermudas nud nll the Weat Indies,
clear around our coast, ahd in the pacific Ocean, all iu the possession of
foreign powers, Tho. British govern:
ment gets as near to us as it can* tf ith
its picket posts; and when HktWfQdp
'Vancouver Island and to Victoria,
whoro they know they hfiVe the
cuiitrol of the Straits of Fuca unless
we do something lo prefent thom, the
first thing they do is to build u great
duck yard, a naval establishment, and
after that n town. They build their
railway to it, then their dockyards,
then their great.mini establishment,
and after they havo done that they are
ready to go to work and tmild a town.
That is British policy as contrasted
with American policy; and yet I am
vory sorry to say that we are lacking
in proper enterprise in getting to that
western coast and taking care of it!
,. Wo have very easy facilities to avail
ourselves of in uniting our eastern and
western coasts. We have to do nothing
more than to extend a friendly, cordial
•frivitntioii to private men with capital
to have a wny through Lako Nicaragua
where we can paaa our fleet—it makes
no clirfereuw what the she of our shipa
may be—from the Atlantic to the Pacific. We cuuld thus save ourselves
the necessity of having two fleets, one
to defend the Pacific and the other to
defend the Atlantic coaflt. But not
only docs that excite no enthusiasm ut
interest among the American people,
but it seems to excite the distrust of
tho administration. They aro opposed
to it.     ,
For my part, I utn' rint capable ->f
highly appreciating an idea of govern*
meut whicli it content merely to pull
thniugh .four years of ud minim rat mil
with'UU doing anything What-ever .for
tlip progress nf American peopl.-. Perhaps a uinii ought tn thank (!"d limnly
that he is pciiiiiiU-il tn livt-fiut.) tf litis to live funryears in pence perhaps
he ought to t-ount itu-m us the brightest und-beat pnrt 'if his whnleuMatmice.
Still, we should mil stagnate becante
the lines hare fallen to ih in pleasant
plntfes. 1 would prefer that this nation
should livo like ft great nnd powerful
iiuoplo who are working out a higher
destiny, atidl''wmild prefer that the
gciicr-itintis to follow ua ahould bo able
in point back ti'pur example and say,
' 'These mth * * ii Adurstopd' winiethiiig
itlmui what was i-i he the destiny of
litis country; they felt its necessities
and its ilouianda upon thom, and they
had the courage to maroh up to them."

KWI FROM AU PARTS OF THE MMtl*
Nkw York, April IU.—The Tribune
saya editorially: De Lessens, believing
thnt audacity is all ono needs to win the
support of the French people, takes occasion to declare that the report of Bige-
low regarding the condition of progress
of tho Panama Canal ia absurd. Big-
low's statement, contrasted with those
of most other observers not directly in
the pay of the canal authorities, appeared
more kindly and generous to the canal
peoplo than the facts warranted; nevertheless ttigelow told the plain truth quite
too often for De Lesseps. It may be
doubted where, in auy other country of
tlie earth than Fiance, a man could con*
tiuun so long to delude the people by his
assertions, after his public statements
had been proved incorrect again and
again.
New Yoeji, April 19.—The Times in
u column article beaded, "Outdoing the
Tweed Ring," accuses Bollin M. Squire,
presont commissioner of publio worltB,
and Maurice B. Flynn, bis backer, of
a scheme to control the entire city government for several years to come. The
plot, according to the Times, includes
the overthrow of Mayor Grace. The
passage of the Aqueduct bill at Albany,
which places Squire nnd Flynn virtually
in chargo of thc building of the aqueduct and the formation of the board of
excise in the interest of the adherents
.of the department of public works, and
tlie intention to either bring PrefMwit
Cleveland to what is called "an understanding,'' or to cripple him and his
friends for all time to come, the Times
says, is one of the most remarkable con*
Bpiruciea for spoils and revenge ever entered into even in the Tweed Ring times.
Nkw Youk, April 19.—The Heralds
Washington correspondent telegraphs:
There ia a rumor that the president has
been making oue of those careful and
laborious studies, to which he is given,
of the publio land question, and that he
has become bo thoroughly convinced of
the vaatness of the land frauds and of
the measure of the present land laws for
land-grubbing by syndicates and corporations, and of the necessity of a thorough
reform of both the laud laws and the
land administration, that he will presently send a apecial message to congress
urging its immediate action in the way
of land reform nnd the repeal of bad
laws to help him in saving the remaining public landa for homestcada for the
people.
Nkw York, April 19.-—A Tribune, editorial says: Everything serins to be
a tie ted by thc disorganization of labor,
eren the wheat market. Thc operators
who rushed May wheat np 4 cents Saturday believo tho railways will atop running entirely in that month. There ia
more wheat in store at Chicago and at
other lake ports than anybody wants to
see delivered at New York in May, The
movement had some supporters in au export demand for the Mediterranean,
Which has beeu completely stopped by
the advance in price. Late reports indicate the yiald this year will approach
500,000,000 bushels of wheat. Thoso
who believe the demand for iron an unfailing indication of thc business futuro
fiud great encouragement in the reports
for April lat. The capacity for furnaces
in blast was greater than ever before in
April, exceeding by 708 tons the weekly
capacity in 1885, when the annual pro-
duet was larger than ever beforo or since,
It is significant that easy money and the
small expansion of loans did not lift the
stock market last week, nor did all thc
strikes or labor troubles depress it.
Nkw York, April 20. -At the free
trade clubs and at Brooklyn they nre
acting ns if they hod heard good news.
They say that private advices from
trustworthy sources at Washington are
to tho effect thnt there has beeu n new
deal in the Morrison tariff bill, whereby
its paisage in the house is reasonably
'assured; thnt the president has awakened
to the necessity of passing some bill,
if only for political reasons. The ex
pressions of Ida wishes in this respect
are beginning to have an influence on the
Democratic members of Pennsylvania,
a delegation, who heretofore has cither
been' 'hifrewarm on the subject, or Imd
some doubta as to the wisdom of agitating tariff revision at all this session,
r New York, April 26.- Inquiry among
the -leading real estate men shows thnt
rrntafor all classes af property hare bean
reduced from 100 to 25 per cent. Thc
strikers nnd the labor troubles in building trades are preventing thc commencu
ment of many new buildings. It ia
thought this will cause an increase in
rente' next season. The cflect of the
labor trouble*: upon tbe building trade in
tho city cau hardly he estimated. It ia
declared that building iu this city is
practically suspended this season ou thia
account. The same story comes from
Boston iu regard to the cflect of the
labor agitation upon thc building trade.
A struggle of most serious parts Ib about
to begin iu this vicinity over the eight
hour movement. The hope of thc central trades and labor uuious, of needed
acquiescence by a large proportion of
employes in the experiment, proves to be
groundless.
MtiSTRBAL, Apr. 23.—A pastoral letter

THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of the great central exhibition opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This is a separate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all iu broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of 68 King-street
West, represents the company. In&ide
no pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. Ko one should visit the Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he wid find a little paradise
of music. Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
and of thc present store room of Mr.
Kuse, aud above all, pianos and organs
of thc most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a ;ipleadid tribute to the
?;cnius and skill of our Canadian maiiu-
itcturers. Pianos and orgaus of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at the extreme
end us he enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every style and design to suit the purchaser. Tlie Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held there the Company had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might seem.
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit,
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Duniinim- Organ and Piano Company
at ths opening of the Loudon Fair. In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of thc great impe
tiiB Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, be referred to tbe Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exliihition, Belgium, and cited as an il*
lustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ aud Piano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Orgnn aud Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from Kngland, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for tlieir skill nnd acquirements in musical knowledge, hut these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that thc
instruments of this company were superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such a .source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

A Uevcric.
' Wandering once among tlu- cedars,
| Wliere tbe fire had spent his spite;
: Looking at thc scarred old tree trunks,
I Which thc sun just tipped with white;
As it sunk in clouds of splendor,
Clouds of fervid, fleecy red;
As its last beam lit the treetor-is
: Par, far up above my head;
, Pointing upwards, ever upwards,
Scorched by fire's heat and Hame;
Pointing upwards grim aud blackened,
Throughout heat or cold tlie same.
I "Monarch's of the western forest,
Bend yonr boughs ou mc less grim:
i Do not look so gaunt and stern,
• Waving your serrated limbs."
And a murmuring voice me answered,
Like a death moan on the air,
i Like a voice among the gravestones
When coines winter dark and drear:
(1 am old and gaunt and ilentl-ilike,
! Cone my waving tresses fair,
[ Clone my cadar plumes liko love-locks,
I ioue my feathery, flouting hair;
"i; mie my beauty and my greenness,
- Gone my pleasure on this earth,
I Fit for naught but menial service,
I Fit for ashes on the hearth;
, "Fit hut to bo trampled under
■ by the filthiest beast below;
| No more huppy days for mc,
No more blessings to bestow.
"To thy race I count my troubles,
; Count iny loss of bloom of life,
| Count my wreck and grim appearance
.  Fell destruction's with them rife.
"Yet 1 blame them not; th' Creator
Kuew my spun of life was done,
Knew my life on earth was ended,
Knew my race was fully run.
"Soon upon the ground Pil lie,
Lay my weary head to rest,
Lay my grimed top in quiet,
Safe upon iny mother's breast.
"Day by day I weaker grow,
Day by day I quivering bend,
Only waiting-, only longing
For the end.'
And tlie voice stopped with a qiiiver,
With a querulous moan and sigh,
Bringing troubled thoughts within me
Aud a tear unto my eye.
For a poet sees the heartaches
Even of murmuring forest trees,
For he looks with eye of vision,
With an eye of vision sees.
