When Mrs. A. T. Stewart died it
was fondly hoped that she would
hnve donated her large collection of
pictures to the public. She did no
such thing, but tho whole lot is to
be sold at auotion in Maroh. Stewart is an example of how rapidly
large fortunes are dissipated. He
has been dead but a few years, but
already his business is in other
hands, his art treasures will be dissipated, and in ten years the knowledge of him will have utterly faded
out from among men. Nothing
that he has built remains, and it is
a question whether the monument
erected to his memory by his widow cover his own bones. He was
a selfish man, bent upon the accumulation of millions, and his fame
and memory died with him ns it
was right and proper that they
Bhould.—Ex.

•jre's Panacea.
Mr. Henry George lectured last
week against land ownership to an
audience which, us far as the pur
chased reserved seats wero concerned, was as nearly as possible
nil, the occasion being in thu respect in startling contrast to the recent lecture of Mr. Justin McCarthy. "In the last analysis," as he
says, Mr. George may be said to
have proved his point. Hadjtobin-
son Crusoe, instead of putting his
foot on Friday's neck and adopting
him us a slave, rushed up to him
as a man and a brother, put his
arms round his neck and woloomed
him to full citizenship, given him a
vote and the right to be elected to
every position in the gift of the
people, it would have made no sort
of difference to Friday, so long as
Robinson Orusoe assevted his ownership of the whole islund. Unless
Friday did just what Robinson
wanted, he would have been evicted
and as he was neither a fish nor a
bird, but a land animal, he would
just have had to submit. Mr.
George maintained that a similar
corner in Innd existed everywhere,
for although it was commonly urged
that, there were parts of the earth
to be had for the taking, the high
rents paid for other land proved
that the free land was practically
unavailable. The lecturer found in
parts of Ireland and Scotland the
nearest approach to Robinson Crusoe's island. There aro none of tht
complications of civilization. No
capital, no manufactures, nothing
but the most primitive conditions.
The people live sparsely in huts and
the landlord lives in a castle, or
rather does not live in it, but in
P.aris or London, and these poor
people work for bim. What we regret in most of Mr. George's utterances is his vagueness as to the
way in which his system would
make things better, a result which
he seems to regard as needing no
other proof than frequent asseveration. Suppose by taxation the government was to assume the practical ownership of the land, the person who could best pay the taxes
would naturally occupy it. The
Scottish proprietors find that they
can let their estates to sheep farmers for the support of sheep at higher rents per acre than they can to
crofters for the support of men and
that lhey can get a very much higher price still by letting it to sportsmen for the support of grouse and
deer, If this be the case the presumption is that unless somo other
principle than the panacea of Mr.
George oame into action Mr. Ross
Winans would hold as much land
ami* hold it as exclusively as he does
now aud London wine merchants
would still continue to drive the
clansmen from the heather.1 It is
generally noted that the same class
who are found in serfdom in Ireland
will, when they come to America,
resist all attempts lo put them in
un independent condition, while the
same olass who have in England
, risen out of feudal dependence into
indepBiident farmers undertake naturally all the burdens of independence in a new country. The differences botween the two does not
seem lo lie in the land question nt
ull, and Mr. George did not show
that the change proposed by him
would have any effect in altering
these relative conditions.—Montreal
Witness.
"I think," said the demure Miss
Waitalittle, "that a Christmas present from pa and ma would be very
nice, you know, but what I really
would like—" "Would be a Christmas present from some one out uf tho
family—" "And porhaps willing to
cone in" she responded quietly.

Tne.a.7 Evening. January 4.1887.
Some people ure continually expressing a belief that Great Britain's free trade policy is causing
decay in her trade, and will speedily lead to her destruction. It may
not be out of place to remark thut
during the 10 years from 1871) to
1885 Great Britain has increased
in population 12 per cent., in wealth
22 per cent., in trade 29 per cent,
and in shipping 67 per cent. That
is certainly not a bad showing for
a nation on the verge of bankruptcy.
As an example of the remarkable
enterprise of the metropolitan press
we may state that the latest poetic
production of Lord Tennyson was
cabled from London, England, to
New York on the clay of its first
appearance, and on the following
day, December 22nd, it was published without abridgment in the
Chicago Inter-Ocean, making three
columns of solid Nonpariel. The
poem is named "Locksley Hall,
Sixty Years After," and is a very
readable production. This is the
first time, we believe, n poem of
such length has been cabled across
the Atlantic.
We are glad to learn that Mayor
Dickinson hos yielded to the solicitation of many friends and consented to stand for re-election as mayor
of the city. We believe this announcement will be received with
general satisfaction. We have already said that Mayor Dickinson
has been very faithful in promoting
the interests of the city, and especially in securing the branch railway. There are several matters of
great importance still pending, and
we know of no citizen in whoso
lir-.-iuVthe adjustment of them could
be left with more confidence. It
would be the correct thing, there
fore, to elect Mr. Dickinson mayor
by acclamation, and we hopo this
will be done.
We notice that the Victoria Colonist has been deceived into accepting ns true tlie mischievous statement of the Guardian respecting
the bond for the maintenance of
the branch railway to this city.
The Colonist's experience should certainly have prevented it from making so serious a blunder. Wo have
pointed out that the second bond
proposed to be accepted by the
council does not lessen the security
at all, but really increases it. The
first bond remains in force until all
doubt respecting -the legal status of
the company in respect of the
branch has been set at rest. When
it lapses, the bond with the G. F. R.
Co. will come into force, and. instead of holding as bondsmen three
persons who may be Turkish pashas
within a year, the oity will hold the
whole company as security for the
fulfilment of the agreement. Will
the Colonist be good enough to rectify its error, as the circulation of
this false report may injure the
city, and it is a libel on the intelligence of our council.
At the council meeting last night
$10,000 worth of retired railway
debentures were laid on the table.
This will be good news for the ratepayers, because it means that $10,-
000 of our debt has been cancelled
and that the interest on these debentures has ceased. At first it
was supposed the proceeds of the
sale of squares would be sufficient
to pay all expenses in connection
with the branoh railway, but the
right of way ahd terminal grounds
cost such an enormous sum that
this supposition almost vanished.
Nearly all the right of Way has now
been secured, as far as the oity feels
called upon to secure it; $10,000 of
the bonus has been paid up; and
there is still considerable city property remaining to be sold. It is not
beyond reasonable hope that when
the remaining reserves have been
disposed of and the whole business
has been closed, the city will have
got its railway without the expenditure of a dollar out of tbe ordinary
revenue, If this hope should be
realised the people may well congratulate themselves.
To-morrow the hearing of the injunction cases takes place before
the judges of the supreme court in
Viotoria. It is not expeoted the
cases will occupy muoh time, but
probably judgment will bo reserved
and tho matter in dispute will remain unsettled. We understand
that it has- been definitely decided
by the injunctionists that, in the
event of the courts giving judgment against them, an appeal will
be taken to the British privy
counoil. H tW« is ioae> »* wil1
postpone for a long time tlie extension of the railway to Vancouver,
and will greatly etobarraii the operations of the company. According
to agreement made with the provinoial government, the time within
which the extension was to be oompleted expired on tlie 81st of last
month, and the company becomes
liable to u penalty pf $250,000. It
is not likely, however, that tho pen
al clause will be enforced in view o/
the fact that the company's operations have been blocked by legal
process. If the caBe goes to London it is probable the company will
apply for speoial legislation such as
will enable it to carry out its proposed programme.

Query '!—A Maple Ridgo correspondent says a dispute arose in the municipal
counoil of that place at Its last meeting
as to whether the letters patent should
be surrendered. When the present letters patent were issuod they called for
four councillor. Tho act has since been
amended to read Ave Instead of four, and
the council were divided as to whether
it would be necessary to have new letters
Sateut in order to make tho election of
ve councillors legal. Our correspondent having asked for an opinion on the
point, we give it as our opinion that the
surrender of the  letters  patent is not
neceaaary.

The Boys in Blue.—The members
of Capt. Bole's battery turned out in
good force to last evouing's drill, when
the guns were mounted for a first time
on the now carriages. The boys had a
good drill. Recruits are being constantly added to the ranks, and there
will no doubt be a second battery organized here boforo long. No. 1 has
its full membership, and applications
to be placed on the roll have consequently to be refused. It is tobe
hoped the interest will continue, and
that, by giving a strict attention to
drill, our young men will retain-for
New Westminster the name of having
the most proficient ahd best militia
corps iu the provinco.

Tiie Geysers.—Geysers of fire, shooting up oue hundred feet in the nir, famish the new curiosities of tho bad lands
of Dakota. For years there have lieen
burning coal veins In tbe bad lands, but
not until recently have they developed
.explosive symptoms. Scientists who
have traversed that region account for
the strango formations upon the supposition that at one time the entire area was
an immense coal lied, which becamo ig-
nitcd from some Internal cause, snd as it
burned away the crust of the earth fell
in. This theory has been strengthened
by the mines or veins of coal which have
lieen burning over since tho discovery of
that part of the national domain, and the
smoke from many of whioh can be seen
from the Northern Pacifio Railroad. It
is believed that tho' cause of these great
geysers now in operation Is the escape of
gasses accumulated by the burning coal,
which upon ignition dart flaming to the
skies. Half a dozen of these gigantic
pillars of flame have been discovered
about one hundred miles wost of Bismarck, and will next summer prove a
great attraction to tourists.

In Memomam.—The unlooked-for
intelligence of the death of A. J. Alport, Esq., at his home in New Westminster, B.C., after an illness of only
a few weeks, was recoived here with
profound sorrow. For several yesrs a
resident of Orillia, and for somo time
previously one of the nost prominent
settlers in Muskoka, Mr. Alport was
widely known in this district. Courteous, straightforward, punctilliously
honorable, and unbending in the discharge of his duties, public and private, Mr. Alport was held in high
esteem, even by those with whom his
strict sense of duty not unfrequently
brought him in conflict, ond his memory will long linger with his friends in
this town and neighborhood. As a
justice of the peace, treaaurer of Orillia and member of tho high school
board, he did the corporation and the
cause of education good service; and
in connection with the Presbyterian
churoh, of whioh ho was a deacon, his
strict business habits aud excellent administrative ability rendered him invaluable. He had been but a short
timo in New Westminster when he
was appointed to the important offico
of city clerk; and there, as here, he
discharged his trust faithfully and efficiently. Mr. Alport leaves a widow,
three sons, and three daughters. Of
theso two are still residents of Orillia,
Mr. E. B. Alport and Mrs. Albert
Fowlie.—Orillia?(Oiit.) Packet.

The Sound Hallway.
As the project of railway connection
between this city and   the  Sound is
one of great interest to tho people uf
this district, we give below the result
of an interview between a reporter uf
the  Seattle  Pod  and  Hon. Eugene
CanBeld, president of the   Bellingham
Bay Railway and Navigation Co.   Mr
Canh'eld    said:   "The   company   of
which I am president was organized in
July, 1883, to construct and equip a
railway and telegraph line from Fair-
haven, on Bellingham Buy, by way uf
the towns of Bellingham, Sthenic and
Whatcom, by lliu must practical routo
to the northern boundary of the United States, connecting with the Canadian Pacific railway; also, to construct
and  equip a railroad  and  telegraph
line from Whatoum by the most  practicable route to a connection with the
Puget  Sound  Shore  Railroad company's line and any and  all  railroads
now or hereafter constructed at or near
tbe city of Seattle, and to do any and
all things necessary and  legal  to the
carrying out of these  projects.   Tho
capital stock of thecompany is 81,000,-
00, divided into 10,000 of 9100 each.
The officers are, Eugene Canfield,
president; D.   B.   JackBon,   of Port
Gamble, vice president; Sutclifie Baxter, of Seattle,  treasurer; W, R. Fur-
rest, of Seattle, secretary, and  F. H.
Richards, of Whatcom,   superintendent.   The trustees are   Eugene  Can*
Held, D. B. Jaoksun,  S. Baxter, W.
R. Forrest,  Dr. T. T. Minor,  Frank
Richards and Charles  Donovan.   On
Nov. 14,1883, the articles of incorporation and proofs of organization were
submitted to the general  land  office
and they were approved and  Bled in
the  office of N. C. McFarland, commissioner of the general land office.
In May, 1884, we tiled our map showing the routes of the company's lines,
which map was also  approved und a
copy of it transmitted to the register
and receiver at Olympia, with tho necessary instructions, by Commissioner
McFarland.   We theu  went   beforo
congress and were granted a charter tu
construct,    maintain    and    operate
bridges and approaches  thereto  over
the Nooksack, Steilaguamish and Sim
horoiih rivers and Lake Union or Salmon    Bay, nnd  any  and  all  uther
streams along the proposed routes uf
of our roads.   This  done, we placed
an engineering party in the field,.under the supervisiun of Col. James Fulton Sheets, formerly in  charge  of a
party on the Northern   Paoific.   Mr.
Sheets and  party  found a splendid
route from the head of Lake Whatcom
to tho Snohomish river, but  between
the Snohomish river and   Seattle he
must have been luuiehmv  misled, for
whon within ten miles of this city the
level book showed an  altitude of 4*5(3
feet above mean high tide.   He then
stopped work and with hia party cumo
to Seattle for instructions.    We were
much annoyed at his thus  withdrawing the men, but we feel that  he did
right  under the circumstances.   As
these aro  the shortest  days iu the
year, and aa there is but  little  timo
available for outdoor work, on account
of storms, we thought it the most economical plaa*to pay off the  party,-retaining only two or three men for field
work, aud to place upon paper what
had already been accomplished iu  the
fall,   Friday last   we sent   Colonul
Sheets out with a small party to make
recunnoisanco af the country   between
hore and the Snohomish.   There are
likely   three routes   practicable  between Seattle und that river, und we,
of course, will adopt the most feasible
oue.   If the weather  proves reason
ably favorable, we wj|| report by   the
middle of the week, when  something
definite can be depended   upon.   The
completion ofthe line .run   the Snohomish to Seattle completes a roi.tinu-
ous line of surveys from  thu British
line to the Queen City.   That done
and passed upun l>y our consulting engineer, the company will bu placed in
a business situation to tiik about construction."

New Westminster  Vancouver A Vletorla, gailU Jjtitisli Columbian
Taesday Evening, Jannan 4,
England ana Italy.
In connection witli a discussion on
alliances going on in tlm Italian press,
tlio editor of the Cm-rim del Maltino,
Signor (Monti, in nn article ontitleil
"John Bull," makes, among others,
tho following remarks:—
The Italo-Brittonio alliance, of which
to much has been lately said, has, in
my eyes, only a negative value. Still,
it would bo tho fact tlie least ugainst
nature of all those till now accomplished by the royal diplomacy, lt would
be a return to the polioy of Cavouy—
the true monument of tho expedition
to tho Crimea. The iiou-oracial truth
is that England und Italy could look
one another in the faco without blushing. Tho two freest and most maritime nations in Guropo have nothing
to reproach themselves with. Thero
is not a drop of blood on their hands
which cries for reciprocal vengeunco.
Why should thoy not unite? Italy,
till yesterday nothing but a museum
and a hospital, gave nothing to England, alas! oxcept, perhaps, a little art
and health. But the grand island has
been an asylum for our exiles and a
school for our patriots. After having
defended our kings from Napoleonic
tyranny, it defended us from tho tyranny of our kings Yos, England,
like all strong, or rather liko rich persons, is an antipathetic nation. But
this antipathy arises from our envy
more than from England's egotism.
Besides, English egotism is a geographical fact; it is tho Atlantic that
permits Great Britain to keep its interests separate from all the others.
Mari divisa imperat tenia England—
THK  GREAT OCEiNIO VENICE
—can also isolate herself diplomatically
without hurting anyone, least of nil
herself. Her sphere of business and
interests—a sphere as large as the
world—isulmost extra-European	
Given an international war, English
policy would consist in soiling arms
and munitions to all, so that thoy
might the' better suppress each other.
This' is the reason why tho great majority of Englishmen, in spito of the
fact that time is money, and of seasickness, will not hoar of the channel
tunnel. This positive nation feels,
with admirable good sense, tliat tlie
day on which England, in one way or
another, should be no longer nn island,
it would have to renouueo its magnificent egotism. Any tunnel or bridge
would simply moan tho introduction of
obligatory military service, if not a
participation in all the follies of Europe I am aware of the accusations made against England. By turns
she has deserved to be called tho gaoler
of India, the starver of India, the
poisoner of China, and a usurer everywhere. The world, moro disposed to
rooall sins than benefits, will throw in
her faco her Walpolos, her Warren
Hastingses, her Hudson Lowes. But
I also know another England—tho
cradle of the jury, the fatherland of
the representative system, tho school
of self-government, the pulpit of economical liberty. I know another England—that whioh inaugurates revolutions,
WHICH rEOSECUIES TYEASTS,
whioh teaches constitutional right,
whieh rejects bills. I know another
England—that wliich by the overflow
of ita population and the exuberance
of ita spirit proereated tho United
States of America For the rest,
what is egotism but an exaggerated
self-esteem? Well, the English have
some right to  think thus highly of
themselves The government of
Her Gracious Majesty will not recoil
before any expense or any obstacle in'
order to wash out an insult to the name
of Britain, in whatever part of the
world, and under whatever latitude it
has been offered! whether by a great
potentate orananthropopliagicaltribe;
thus, while Austria lets the brother of
her emperor be shot in Mexico without
moving a finger, England sonds 30,000
meu into Abyssinia to liberate two
missionaries, and as many more to
Cabul to revongo the massacre of a
legation. Another European powor,
were it even the great Germany, would
liave sent General Gordon to Khartoum, but it would havo left him there.
That
NATION   OF   BANKERS   ANII OPERATIVES
felt like one man tho duty of succoring
hiin. An it was no fault of Gladstone
or Wolseley if, on the point of being
liberated, the Whito Dictator of the
Soudan, betrayed by his own servants,
paid with his life his indomitable audacity It has been said, and said
again, that n subjoct of tho Empress-
Queen, a true modern etuis, can traverse the globe without n passport.
But in order that this yurd-of-cloth be
so highly respected, it is first necessary
that he respeot himself. And, in fact,
it is so. Political respectability is an
Anglo-Saxon virtue. To these contemporaneous Romans, tho red flag
with the/eight-armed cross is the waving symbol of home—of the country
together with the house. Among its
majestic folds each of them reads as he
.runs the story of the Britannic civisin
or egoism; a civism or egoism that is
■ of more benefit to the world thnn all
Frenoh convulsions or German mediations. It is a kind of magna eharta
libcratam, whioh the vassals of her
majesty carry at the points of their
antemue- to comfort the eyea and
hearts of
EVERY   (1ENUINE ENGLISHMAN.
Uh, you may contemptuously call this
people of workers and bolievers
"John Bull;" you may fix tho
stigma of "perfide" on this master
of liberty; its injurious nicknames
will not prevent it from revealing itself in all itt calm strength, in aU itt
oool courage. It is during |'psychological moments" that nations are
known, and, to-day, John Bull is no
more laugned at, because he it admired. I ihould like the alliance, or
at least the amity, of England tobe
for ui, the old Latin people, almost a
moral eudosmose, a transmission of
seriousness arid' finnneis. I should
like the tone of Italy, fighting, as it
mlghtrte, by the side of the bluejack
ets, to learn to oboy moro than to conquer. I should like, in short, our
new und sweet national flag, one day
confounded with tliat other glorious
ono iu aomo noble cause in the same
martial smoko, to acquire, iu tho eye
of tho peoples, its fascinution and its
significance
Cold Feet and Headaches
The days uf cold feet and headaches
have come. Medicine, unfortunately,
can do very little for thoso troubles,
and persons afflicted in that way must
make up their minds to suffer or eke
give over tho habit of dressing their
feet after the conventional mode. If
hoadachea and cold feot were all the
ills that arise from improper treatment
of the feet and lack of attention to
their needs, the foibles of faslron
might be followed at perhaps the expense of a few houra' discomfort, but
unluckily thesj Iroubles ore but the
beginning of other disorders and many
torrible norvomTuffectioiia. A
"Cold foet and headaches go hand-
in hand as it were," said a physician
eonnected with one of the city hospi
tals to a reporter for the Mail and
Express thi3 morning. "The person
who has cold feet iB almost sure to
have violent nervous headaches.
Why ? Because the blood not circulated in the extremities is crowded
into tho upper portion of the body and
exerts an undue pressure upon the
blood vessels of the brain. Nothing
causes congestion of tho internal organs more quickly than this crowding
of the blood into the body that should
circulate freely to and through the extremities. The trouble increases in
proportion to the - continuance of the
practice of ignoring tho needs of the
feet. The blood vessels of tho extremities become thickened and narrowed
by the lack of flow of the vital fluid,
and thus tho difficulties are perpetuated. Persona suffering in thia way—
and who is not to a greater or less extent ?—should soak their feet every
night in warm water and take plenty
of outdoor exercise. This counteracts
the tendency to congestion, enlarges
the vessels, and helps permanently to
relievo the feet of their Bpecial tendency tu coldness.
"The conventional shoe, perhaps,
does more to keep the feet cold than
any other one thing. A •nose shoe, I
know, is quite as uncomfortable aa a
tight one. I know, also, that a shoe
should fit as closely as a stocking. But
where it should be tight ia around the
ankle, across tho instep, and around
the arch of the feot and heel. It
should have, however, a loose upper
and a lurge sole. Tho bones of tho
foot need plenty of room for movement. A loose shoe is quite us productive of corns and other discomforts
as one that pinches; but if it pulls thc
muscles of the feet awry, pinches up
the bones in one place and lets them
spread out in another, until they can
have no natural action, the circulation
must bB interfered with. Women are
more troubled with cold feet than
men. In faot they are moro generally
afflicted with diseases of tho feet than
men. Thero are very few women
that do not have corrugated nails, and
yet there iB no more need of it than
that they Bhould havo misshapen nails
on their fingers. Have you ever no
ticed at the seashore that occasionally
you see a woman with every nail on
hor feet threaded by rough lines, and
the color, instead of boing a bright,
healthy pink, is yellow und unhealthy?
Then yeu have Been tho result uf improperly dressing tho feet. Again,
you Bee the samo disease manifest
itself in little holes that look us if the
nail had been worm-eaten and was
full of little pits. A poor circulation
of the blood, resulting from indigestion, malaria, or squeezing of the feet,
is the cause of all tliis.
" Almost all the troubles of the feet
are unnecessary. Caution and common sense will prevent them. Of
course there aro some forms of joint
disease, gouty and rheumatic inflammations for instance, whioh the possessor ia not dircetly responsible for,
but even theae, if taken in time, can
be cured. Feet thut per.pire should
be washed every night and rubbed
with a weak solution of carbolic acid.
The stockings should be changed daily
and the shoes should havo in-soles that
can bo changed as often as tho stockings. Tho soldiers of the Bavarian
army are required to bathe their feet
overy day and anoint them with a
pomade made of mutton tallow and
salicylic acid. This prevents undue
perspiration and keeps the feet from
becoming diseased. Most fuet cun be
kept healthy and soft hy snaking them
in hot water before retiring and uning
ammonia and soap freely. Then they
should be rubbed briskly with a bath
towel and have a small portion of
glycoiine spread over tliem. Caro
must bo taken, however, tu use good
soap. Bad soap is tho beginning uf
many evils. Much of Ihe must highly
perfumed articles known tu the trade
is made from the refuse uf rendering
housea and is full of alkali. Such
soaps aro positively injurious. Plenty
of good Boup, warm water, a frequent
change of dressing, aud shoes that fit
the font will prevent any truuble of a
local character, cure corns and bun*
ions, and prevent headaches nnd cold
feet, and sensible shoes and care uf
the feet will oftentimes co in a week
what medicines and the dilator could
nover accomplish." — N, Y. Mail ami
