NEW WESTMINSTER, R 0., FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY U, 1887.
NUMBER II
gailg ffritish Columbian
£LS
Jnaaary U. ISSl.
Under tht intei-state oornmerco
bill, agreed upon by the committee
of both houses, and thought sure to
pass, all passes are forbidden except
to officials and employes of railroads.
No reductions in fare are allowed
"oxcept to ministers of religion."
This ie all right enough, only it is
difficult to see why ministers should
be excepted, any, more than several
other classes. It is proper, in railroad reform, that the pass should go,
and go in all its forms and phases—
offioial, editorial, complimentary and
otherwise. There is lib' compromise
ground in it. Either the .railroad
should issue no pass under any form,
making everybody pay fare *,lik°i.or
it should be left to do as it does
now. It is good to know this. But
this bill will make it sweeping, and
out. off all passes, except those to
its own 'employes, — Iowa State-
Journal.

but after a short stay got away
from that haunt of pestilence and
death as soon as he could. Toa
newspaper man ihe | said the other
day: "The death rate on the canal
was frightful. Far- forty days tiie
railroad oompany was obliged to run
three trains of cars each day to
Monkey Hill cemetery, so gnat was
the mortality.1 'White and native
laborers alike drop down in the
streets and die without -medical assistance. The bodies are carted to
Monkey Hill, where they are, buried
in trenches, , The mechanics are
promised $5 a day in silver and
board there, The silver is issued
by the Chilian government, and the
dredging company discount it at 35
cents on the dollar for American
gold. The food issued to the laborers is poor and insufficient in quantity. The fresh meat is mostly-all
diseased. BVjr drinking water they
are given rain water, and ice is
worth 8 cents a pound. The medical attendance it poor, and the doctors charge (25 a visit. -It cost §20
to enter the i French hospital at Aspinwall and $2 a day for attendance.
Five years ago tlie company took a
contract to dredge fourteen miles of
the canal. .-, They, employ eight
dredges and nbout hve hundred men,
and have the contraot about half
completed.", The physicians and
oontraoWt told Mr. Thisselle that
the mortality among the whites and
natives was never in the history of
the enterprise as heavy Mat present —Ttlepimi. •  ■   ' ;-
We aro threatened with an avalanche of knighthoods and gewgaws
of all descriptions ih honor—it
would be nearer the truth to say in
ridicule—of the Queen's Jubilee.
Tho report that an effort is being
nude to limit the number to two
thousand sounds-like a satirioal canard, but we will venture to say that
there are at least twice two thousand aspirants. Any one who happens to have seen the private correspondence of a British minister
must have formed an enlarged idea
of the silly vanity of mankind. It
is futile, we fear, to repeat that
rank not conferred by the publie
voice, whatever may lie its uses in
old countries, is utterly alien, not
only to the democratic prejudices,
but to the soundest instincts of so-
oiety in the New World; that it
hat been sometimes lavished by the
inevitable blindness of the home
government on the most conspicuous undesert, and that its general
effeots are evil. There ii a special
absurdity in the creation of hejedi
tary titles, Which, as we have happily no entailed estates, may be
borne in the second generation by a
shoeblaok. By refusing knighthood
Mr, Mackentie and Mr, Blake have
rendered a service to this community wbioh ought never to bo forgotten. Honor bestowed' because
a man happened to lio in office in a
particular year is surely as perfect
a travesty of the system as satire
oould devise. Any attempt, by tho
introduction of aristocratic distinctions, to set Canada against her
democratic neighbor can only be
mischievous. It is by her friendly,
vote in the oouuoils of her;own continent that she oan give real assistance to her mother count! y.—The

Changing the Haps.
A San Franoisco paper (tbe Bulletin) publishes an ' interesting artiole on thc changes which are taking place continually ih the map of
the world,and pointing out what may
lie looked lofin the joar npbn wliich
we havolentered. ■ Passing over the
map changes of ■ the American and
European wntments,' Wliich havo
been of small importance, it remarks that'-things hare been verv
different in Asia and Africa. On
the lust day of 1885, the Queeii of
Britain issued a;proclamation annexing BurJg&'tb the'Britishdd-
ininions, Great Britain had pre
viously, in 1824 and in 1852, seized
the littoral, and the most fertile
provinces; now she grabbed the rest.
To make good the proclamation,
some fighting .was required, and it
was necessarjl'to conclude a treaty
with China-to secure Bhamo. Both
of those<in»r«,dj"ne, and now the
kingdom of Burmah disappears
from the maps, and a province of
British India takes' its place. Another made piece of territory, the
Fort Hiudhdh group, which before
1886 figured as Corean, must also
be now felrfas Brijfsh. Simultaneously, the advance of Russia
througof Turkestan to the border of
Afghanistan has destroyed the value
of all existing maps of Central Asia.
Exactly Jiow far the Russian out-,
posts extend at jthis time is not generally known,' Wt it is probably safe
to place them within striking distance qf Herat, and to call all the
oountry norrJi of the' Parapoinisus
range Russian, In that part of the
world lrf|*4<*f ty* «lw»yi- been
shadowy."' Wlssiii has,probably encroached Jon the country marked as
Thibet, and on the semi-Chinese
province J£ Ma5lt*llooS». *?3KIiat*
the exact status of Corea is no one
knows; whether it is still independent, or a Ohinese or a Russian dependency, are matters of Bonie uncertainty." ' In Africa extensive
changes have taken place. Egypt
has lost the'Soudan. On the southwestern coast tlie Congo state has
been created, and the boundaries
are like the ;eud lines of the plantations wliich the king used to grant
to the early settlers in New England; they are indefinite and unlimited. jCqngo jStafe^xftnOT^raijF
wliere fn*a round the equator to
latitudaraJjKJSK deg! south; it runs
as far east as white, men choose to
claim and black men choose to surrender.-It has all the makings of
a grand state. Ou the east coast
the Germans have! planted the seeds
of whal
colony
settlemel
a large portion of African territory
has changed1 its national complexion
since 1885, and the maps will have
to be altered accordingly. There
has been in 1886 a pretty general
snapping, np of unconsidered trifles
in the shape of islands by the nations of Europe. Germany has
made good -her foothold in Papua;
has seized—whether for keeps or
not dees not yet appear—Samoa;
and is hovering round New Britain,
with an unmistakable tendency to
pounce, France haa laid forcible
hands on the seaports in Northwest
Madagascar, and has thrown out
her outposts in Tonquin, without,
however, effecting any regular occupation. . An interesting new map
has just been published showing the
division ofthe Pacifio islandsagreed
upon between Britain, France and
Germany. When the Holy Alliance
partitioned Poland, British statesmen protested against the destruction of an independent nationality;
but it seems that nationality, to
command respect, must be white,
and the map-maker will have ta
keep his eyo closely on the blue
books when he comes to make his
new map) et Polynesia. The changes
whioh may be made in this map concern theT United States above aU
other nations, as they will relate to
the Hawaiian Islands., Theso productive islos' hnvei.feen regarded in
the light of outposts of the United
States toward the west, arid the predominance of American interests
therein,have undoubtedly thus far
saved them from the grasp of foreign nations. But Honolulu is in
the direct liuejjetwaen the British
posswithQrt' aSotth ■ America and
ner island. conjaneht' of Australia,
and the great advantages to accrue
from its -paswssion have been real
ited mora 'rally than evor since the
completion of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad, The: 92 per cent, of the
entire eurport trade of thn islands,
which . new domes to the United
States, would, according to English
papers, t» transferred to Canada,
ihould .our'treaty .With Hawaii be
abrogated and t a similar treaty be
made bjr Canada. Indeed, negotiations hfef Unentered into through
tlie colonial offloe, and a reciprocity
treaty has been frvorably considered
by toil ;flie: bojonjal office and the

bought out a teamster ih this city and
has been engaged successfully in that
business ever since. He is the largest
property-holder in the council, and
may be put down as.'ipretty well

KAELT BISTORT, FR00RESS
AKD DEVELOPMENT.
For many reaaons it is thought a
few brief historical notes of the now
flourishing city" of NewWestminster
would prove interesting to the readers
of the Columbian both ut home and
abroad. The history of the place,
whioh is identified with the whole
mainland, has been eventful. It has
been marked by many reverses, by
betrayal, by great perfidy and wicked
and unjust discrimination by governments. It is the record of a community with wonderful natural advantages and citizens of indomitable pluck
and energy struggling for existence
under burdens heaped on it and barriers placed before it by imperial and
colonial government.. Reference to
the past will show the citizens of to
dsy what onr pioneers have had te
contend with, and encourage them to
look forward with hope to brighter
days, the dawn of which is just upon
us, The oity, dwarfed and stagnant
for a long time, commenced a few
years ago to revive, and property in it
has since gradually approached, and
now exceeds, the value at which it
was held when it could boast of being
the
CAPITAL OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.
It is the purpose of thi, narrative to
refer to the selection uf the townaite,
tho creating of New Westminster the
capital of British Columbia, and to
the removal of the capital and the
means by which it wai brought about,
as well as to other mattera of minor
importance. For most of the information we are principally indebted to
our esteemed oitizen Mr. Wm. Clarkson, who came to the province in
1868. He has lived iu New Westminster through all its dark days and
endured all the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life. Even
at the early date of hia arrival the
future of the mainland as a part of the
great British confederation, and its
compaatjiy a great railway was foreseen by mm, and through all the years
of delay and disappointment which
followed, faith in the accomplishment
of these scheme* and the future proa-
perity and greatness of his adopted
city never forsook Jijui. M/ CJark-
son is still a, enthusiastic as over over
the advantagu and possibilities of the
peninsula on whioh New Westminster
and Vancouver are built, and points
to a time when it shall be one great
commercial metropolis with connections by water with all partsof the globe.
This mainland of ours was proclaimed
ONE or HER MAJESTY'S COLONIES
of 19th day ot November, 1858, when
all obstruction to miners or othors entering the Fraser were removed. Previous to this, a gunboat had been
placed at the mouth of tha river and
the privilege of paying 80 toll or turning back wss given to the miners who
wished to'ascend. Thc history, then,
of British Columbia proper (Vancouver Island being then a distinot and
separate colony) dates from Ihe year
1868. Sir James Douglas, chief factor cf the Hudion Bay company, held
the dual poaition of governor of both
coloniea. At that time New Langley
(otherwii. Derby) wa. tht official
capital of British Columbia, nr at least
thst city wu laid out for the purpose
by the governor under instructions
from the Hudson Bay Company.whicli
held a block of land ten or twelve
mile, square adjoining the aite.
Hence the haste with which the company had this townsile laid out and
the capital fixed there, calculated, as
it was, to make their .Langley farm
very valuable. A great portion of the
•ile, however, wns a cranberry marsh,
altogether unsuited for a cily, and it
remains a marsh to this day, A few
unsubstantial . itnproveiueiu. wore
made here, and liarraok. were erected,
where ,uch well-known men of to day
as Sergeant McLure, Capt. Paraon,
and Sergeant Bonson were quartered
for a short Unit. The event which
brought about the chnnuoot the capital aite occurred aoinctliing like this:
Colonel Moody wu going up the
river one day during the low water
season when he taw a vessel, lumber
laden, lying in Ihe bay opposite the
'penitentiary. She had been lying
there then four weeks wailing for au
opportunity to get op to New Langley, snd the colonel conoluded that it
would never do to have Ihe capital of
Britiah Columbia .. ,
OUT Of SAILING REACH
from lht ocean, and he decided lhat it
should come down nearer the month
of the river. Hence the choice of this
locstion of New Westminster. After
the so-called Waroell and. Peniert rebellion at Hope, attention wa. directed to tht surveying and laying out of
the new site for the oily tnd capital
All work was stopped at New Langley
and the hands ordered down to Queen-
borough, or Queeuiborough as it wss
called. Indeed, it may - hore be re.
marked thst the crooked little letter
".''almost oreated a serious rupture
of tho good relations helween the good
governor and the gallant colonel of
those dnys, Theso gentlemen belonged to the advanced aohnul which
sueim to settle all dispules by urbitra
tion, and accordingly referred lhe
matter jii her in» je.ty the qui-on. Our
gnnd queen, »iili that ilipliuuntie
.kill which hns i-m.i 1 .,1 Imt 11 li,l,i
over many dinicniin-s dui-iiiu tier !<ing
roigu, satisfied all  p-iri ies by  calling
tbe new city New Westminster—hence
thetermRoyal Cily. WhenLangley was
abandoned those who held lots there
were allowed to exchange thom for
lots iu New Westminster, lu June,
1869, the first snle of liiti wus held by
by, tho imperial government.
It took place in Victoria
and the prices realized were from $110
to to 82,000. This astonished everyone. Mr. W. D. Ferris, we believo,
has a list of the purchasers ot this
sale, us woll as a map of the city called
"Quecnsborough." It may be stated
here that a promise made at the sale
referred to that the receipts should go
towards
OPENIN" AND BUILDING HTREKTH
was never kept, The seotion of land
surveyod into lots WM from the river
to Royal Avenue. Some time after
10 claiitiH more were surveyed from
Royal Avenue to Queen's Avenue, and
sold ut auction. Then some time
after that 30 chnins back from Queen's
Avenue was laid out in large lots and
also sold nt auction and by private
sale. This made in all about 760
aores of heavily timbered laud sold as
lots of the city of New Westminster,
realizing to the government the sum
of about half a million dollars. It
must be remembered, however, that
this largo sum was realized upon the
imperial promise that this should be
mado the commercial as well as the
political capital of British Columbia,
a promise mado, like pie-crust, to be
broken. To show how it was broken
it will be necessary td refer to events
in the history of the colony at that
time.

J. 8. M'Lachlan'8 Insurance.
The S„ Ule Company has Paid lis Policies, bnt Other Companies Waal
Proof or Death.
From the Montreal Star,
There is every likelihood of litigation concerning tho payment of the
policies of assurance hold on tho lifo
of the ute Mr. J. S, MoLaohlan. One
company, the Sun Life, has paid its
policies, but it iB stated the others resist payment. It may be that the
matter will be amicably settled, but
Buoh is not the present appearance.
There Was, as has been stated, a total
of $42,180.70 insurauce on his life,
{iluced as follows: In the Sun Life, ou
lis life $7000, with a bonus of $130.-
70, and an accident polioy in the samo
company for 810,000, making a total
of $17,130.70, Of the accident policy
for $10,000, $6000 of. it wus reinsured
with the Citizens' Insurance Company.
The Sun Life has paid the $17,130.70
to the heirs. The Citizens refuse to
pay the Sun Life, and the latter company will enter suit. The Sun Life
on paying the claim to the McLachlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 0 per cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S.
McLachlan ever turn upidive. The
other insurances wero $11,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co., $2000 in
the -jEtua Life, $2000 iu the Dominion
Safety Fund and a partnership policy
for $10,000 in tile Accident Company
of North America. There was a personal accident policy in the latter company, and when J. S. MoLaclilan left
Montreal sume time ago, the unearned
portion of the premium waa returned
and the polioy cancelled. The partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
the North America, Company on the
ground that Mr. J, S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner at the time of
his death. The partnership policy
was on the lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachlans, Mr. Radford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the policy wu
payable to the survivors. IKAenAfr,
Brophy retired fiom the business his
name teas remowd from the policy and
another put iri his place by the company,
who never was and u net turn a partner.
While the Sun Life" has paid its policies, the others have expressed the desire to receive more satisfactory proofs
of death than have heen furnished
them. The Citizens' Insurauce Company claims, first, that they were not
'notified of a desire for renewal, and
second, that the premium for tho second year, which began in August last,
hns not yet boon paid. Tho policy of
the ^Stna calls for the production of
tho body. Mr. W. McLachlan hu
written a letter to Mr. Macaulay, of
the Sun Life, certifying to the honorable and liberal manner in whioh thnt
company hu acted with regard to the
claim. M. O. McLeod, jb agent for
the Sun Lifo ir. thia city.]  djnl4w2

The Dairy.
American cheese stands fourth ami
fifth claw in the foreign market, whereas it used to be pretty near the head.
Canadian cheese is much preferred to
ours, because it is firmer, less watery
and better made.—Prairie Farmer,
Frequent milking has a favorable
effect on the quantity and quality of
the milk secretion, but it imposes a
physical strain that can be counteracted only by more or better food.
Bo Bore that your cuwi. go into winter iu uood condition, If you havo
beta feed iny no grain, but relying altogether on pasture, and the cows are
at all thin, now is the time to begin to
feed stronger. Poor cows cannot give
rieh milk and are not calculated to
stand the strain of cold weather.
The dairyman who is most careful
to furnish shelter for his cows when
tho«old rains and frosty nights come
on, and who feeds most judiciously,
never letting his cows shrink in their
flow of milk unnaturally for want of
food of the proper kind and proportion, is the one who will get the most
product—3'. D, Cwtis.
'Ayrshire cattle have been very successful in the English show rings this
season, winning the champion milking
prize iit the Bath and West of England show. We have long thought
them good cows, and are inclined to
regard them and the Jersey as the two
great dairy breeds.—Jersey Bulletin.
Of all the dairy produots, buttermilk
is perhaps lept appreciated. It is
more easily digested than sweet milk,
as it has undergone a fermentation
which it i pf rtibl digestion, and enter!
the stomach in a foose, flaky state easily acted upon bythe gastric juices.
In some respects it resembles koumiss,
the most digestible of milk products.
It ia a. .decided laxative; counteracts
constipation. It is surprising that it
has not become more popular iu large
cities as a summer drink.
The man who expects soiling to be
a olieap and successful substitute for
grasB pasture is barking up the 'wrong
tree; thero is no coon up there to
come down. . It may be that in timo
we can milk arid fatten cows as they
do geese tn Holland, by nailing their
feet to the floor and stuffing them with
fat oyaters and oil oake, but science
hsa not reached that point just yet in
the dairy. In'the meantime we advise all to go a little slow in this direction arid let the rieh fellows do the
" heft" tif the experimenting first,—
U. S. Dairyman,
One of the prinoipal causes of butter
becoming rancid is the buttermilk contained in it. If butter be churned
until compacted no amount of washing
will rid it of all the milk. It la therefore important that churning ceaso
while the butter is in a granulated
atate. It can then be washed comparatively free of buttermilk. It is a
good plan to draw off the buttermilk
and fill in sufficient cold water to
float the granules, and then agitate it
slightly and draw'off. Repeat until
the water is no longer discolored. It
is well to salt the butter slightly before beginning to wash it, as it will
aid the operation. Some may suppose
that all the butter will not be separated from the cream if the churning be
stopped when the butter is yet in a
granular state, but if the milk drawn
off he re-churned it will be found to
yield nothing. Butter treated in this
way will require only sufficient work-
ins to thoroughly distribute the salt,
and thus the " grain" of the butter is
preserved and its keeping qualities
much improved.—Prairie Farmer.
Cows should havo access to water as
often as they wish it, especially if they
are obliged to live, as most cows do,
chiefly on hay, as it creates a stronger
demand for water than other kinds of
fodder, such ai straw, corn fodder, or
millet,   Some people seem to think if
cows get; water once a day it is all they
need; but that is not enough unless
they are living on succulent food suoh
as roots or ensilage.   Cattle aro  their
own best judges of their need of water,
and they do best when they have their
option about using it   If they drink
but once a day, they overload with it,
to their injury.   Taking in an over
supply of cold water chills the stomach
and occasions discomfort and pain, and
what is  worse, slope  digestion  until
the contents of the stomach, by slow
degrees, warm  up again.   Wherever
wuter can bB obtained from an elevation sufficient to carry it into the stable, it is  most convenient, and will
pay best, to  water in the stable by
passing it in a trough  under the manger, the bottom of the manger serving
as a cover to the trough, tu  which it
is attached with hinges, so that it oan
be turned up when desired, to give the
stock access to tlie water.    When thus
watered ull thoanimslsareserved alike
and without disturbance, and  by hav*
tng wuter when they want it, without
haying to  wait- for  it, they will uot
take excessive   draughts, as they are
apt to when kept away frnm it by the
musters of tho herd after they have become, .thirsty, or as they are very suro
to when drinking but mice a day.   On
account    of     its      more      elevated temperature, spring water U prefer-
able   in  brook   water, and    where
springs are not  available, oUiems set
in tiie ground, so as to temper their
contents to that ofthe earth, make an
excellent substitute for springs.   It is
a good time now, before cold   weather
sets in, to consider tho inatter of the
winter's wator supply, nnd to  make it
as good and as convenient ^possible.

Labor Triable* and the Sunday question.
It isfor^lio^reaJunttiaUhclu-
boring cWbbi* In Continental Europe
have been making such wide-spread,
efforts during tho lust few years to re-
aitt the demands of capital for Sunday
labor. Slowly but aurely the wage-
earning classoB across the sea are coming to learn that encroachments on the
in^o«c/oV M?kTdoi.i- tainys
pay. Capital, however^ seems too Btu-
jiid to Bee that at the bow watch ia
kept tightly strung when it is not in
use, loses it| spring and power; so the
man or," thj bssst not having the rest
whieh God Almighty intended each
ahould have, Buffers loss of power to
earn wages.
Statistics show, that manufacturers
receive » greater profit from the labor
of employes who rest on the Sabbath.
All opposition to Sabbath observance
tend, to increase toil without ilia-easing its iiruGta. No man wishing to
hire a horse for a hard day's drive
would take one which had been driven
almost or quite up to the limit of his
power on the preceding day, if he
oould possibly mt «n» thtt was fresh.
So no wage.jktmr .who is crowded

and from work, can be realty fit to
