The native question throughout
South Africa becomes mere difficult
to deal with evory year; every governor in succession has his plan,
whioh he carries out to a certain extent, ami is then recalled in mope or
less disgrace; and so tlm condition
of things grows coustiantly.yvoi'se.
The fttonistsJ, le'rV to tHeniAelves,
would soon settle the ditficuilfy, but
only *uy*'a6mg wh'iit the' Boers do^
namely, by establishing a system of j
serfage or forced labor, repugnant to
English 'imi. THe' problem % (d

A scheme is being matured for
the onutructibn 'of a line of rail-'
way fro* a \ft}iffi on the. Canadian
Paoiflc Railway' at Sikainoose Narrows (near Shuswnp lake) to Priest's
Valley, at the arm of .Okanagan
Lake, I 'Thii would iovella aistance
of fifty miles, and a further stretch
it se*enty-five miles would be se-
jurcd   by establishment of, steam-
it traffio (ipon Okanagan iajce. 1 Iif
s calculated: that the running or!
uch.. a line as this would yield a
air return upon tho investment by
he carrying trade it would secure
rom tlie establishment of 'direct1
omntunication between the Okana
jut and Spallumcheen valleys'and
he outer, world. > Thero would be
rpened up a large .wheat-growing
rea, including tho volleyof the
joldstfeam. The. lands already un-,
ler cultivation tliat would be brought
"ithin reaoh of thp line arp| nppraxii
nately, 136,000 acres in extmt;
.nd »Wre aro in addition, irrespdo-
jve oJ,gja-jng,lands, oy«r 70,000
icres capable > of producing wheat.
Sxtensiva ranges, offering generous
mstunge, lie contiguous to the pro-
xisecL,fVo**^ bf railway, and- upohi
i. lauds could be fattened large
lerdsj of iatock, for which tid'inn-easing popuhitipn of.tlie.proviuce
would'" furnish a ready demand.
Then, again, thero are the important
imber interests of the country' to
rvhich- the development o( this dis-
riot would form np inconsiderable
jontriliution; j All tliose resources,
ipart from ther conditionally yalu-
ible one of the minerals, offer a fair
md sufficient guarantee of the bulking of such a line as proposed be.-
joming a profitable investment.
Mr. G. A. Keefer, 0. E., who has
rxamined the proposed line, speaks
if the, country, as being cjrxeption-
illy -favorable for tlie purposes of
ailway construction, .the cost/ of
which he places at 9750,000, r/ith a
urther cost of 840,000 annually for
he running expanses of a daily ser-
ice dne way. ' The cost 'of 'obn-
truetiug a cmiaI through the dia-
rict was devised' hy tlie Dominion
;ovontn»nt when in 1882 they
aused a survey to be made by Mr.
B. Hamlin, O. 'SX, whd reported
hat such a canal would establish an
mbroken navigable water Btrctch of
ver 240 miles opening upon a rich
j-ricultural country unsurpassed in
re whole province for its fertility,
lie cost of said canal he plaoed nt
lmVes*) aa |J7,000 per mile. Thb
imposed,'.*iiil*»»y is oil* of n few
branch lines of the Qinndiun Pnoi-
io that would be of the utmost im.-
ortaiico to Britisli' Oolumbia, for it

Woman's Klngiloin.
On the fourtli page of this paper
will lie found a memorial from the
"Women's Christian Temperance
Union of tliis city protesting against
the granting of any more liquor
licenses. There are some peoplo who
seem to imagine that women have
no business to interfere in matters
of this kind, and that they arc not
capable of judging of such things.
This is a sentiment wliich, fortunately, is rapidly dying out. There
was a timo when woman was regarded as an entirely inferior creature, usoful only as a toiler and a
burden bearer, and quito unfit to
take any part in altairs of state.
That time is gone forever. Christianity aud civilization liave elevated
woman from an inferior position to
one in which she claims and receives
almost universal homage. The fow
who still refuse to pay deference to
her physical or mental endowments
are those who have not yet fully escaped from the power of barbarism.
Woman has shown by many examples that she*is not only capable
of adorning the home and shining
in social life, but that she can, when
occasion demands, Wield the sceptre
of civil authority with judgment,
tact nnd firmness. Even the nations which hold to the theory of
woman's inferiority permit her sometimes td occupy the position of 'queen
and arbiter of the national destiny.
But those who refuse to give woman
any part in the management of public affairs will not deny that she
ought to hold authority in the social
affairs and tlie home. If the domestic circle is her peculiar sphere,
it must be conceded thut her
thoughts aud her hands should
mould and fashion the affairs of
domestic .government. If she is to
be queen of tho home, she must
have, a voice in the regulations by
which her realm is to be governed.
But there is no one thing fraught
with such consequences to the home
as the liquor trallic. It has probably wrecked more homes, blasted
more lives, and broken more hearts
than any other agency, and to this
very day it is carrying death and
destruction to thousands of hnppy
homes throughout tho land. It is
against this enemy and destroyer of
her own special realm that the women are offoring a protest, and their
right to do so cannot be questioned.
The memorial recites some very 'excellent reasons why no moro licenses
should be granted. If it be true,
as stated, that more hotel accommodation- is needed in the city, it certainly Is not true that there is need
for inore saloons. The new building going up at Custom House
Square, for which a license is
asked, for, is not going to increase
the hotel accommodation to any ex
tent. It is simply intended for a
saloon, of which there are already
far too many. Besides, it almost
touches two houses on Blackie st.
which are used for purposes a great
deal worse than selling whiskey. If
it is believed by the lioense board
Unit saloon licenses are necessary as
it bonus for the erection of such
hotels as ure needed for public
accommodation, let them require the
accommodation to lie something res-
peotable, and uot merely three or
four bedrooms as a sort of cloak
under which to plead the necessity
for supplying public accommodation.
We are not in favor of granting
liquor licenses under any circumstances. There are no circumstances
that *will justify the establishment
of an evil agency, which the liquor
trallic is universally admitted to bo.
But if it is not found possible with
our preseut laws to suppress the
evil traflic, it is possible nnd right
that the license board should refuse
to Increase it under the circum
stances now existing. Let not the
board dismiss the women's protest
us an outburst of sentiment which
should not influence their deliberations. It is more than sentiment—•
it is truth that cannot be refuted.
Every member of the board is responsible for the moral as well as the
political effect of his voto on this
question.	
Thi Woed "Toby.''—This word,
according tn Defoe, is tho Irish tornigh,
used in the roign of Queen Elizabeth
to signify a band of IriBh robbers. It
is formed from the verb torreighim (to
make sudden raids), lirrlius says:
Tory, silvestris, Montana, avis, bomb,
et utrunqtie ullus hared ibi ost!"
(Whatever inhabits Mountains aud
forests is a tory.) Lord Mocaulay
says; "The name was first given to
those who refused to concur in excluding James from the throne." He further says: "Tlio bogs of Ireland af forded a refuge to popish unlaws, called
tories." Tory-hunting was a pastime
whioh even found place in Knglish
nursery rhymes—"I went to the woods
and killed a toiy." F. Crnssley gives
aa the derivation Tiwlih-ritjh (Celtic),
"King's party." H. T. Horo, in London Notes awl Queries gives Titagk-
,-igh. "Partisans of tlio King." 0.
Borrow gives 3W-a-rt, "Come, 0
Sing." Another suggestion is the
highwayman's demand, Toreel tmeel
"Give) givel" (i. e., your money or
your life).—St. Louis (ttobe-Democrat.

wholo columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily npprcclnhlc, and artistic style
of presenting n" subject, the whole situn-
I ion Is revealed at ft glance. The success
of Grip shows how well this fact is Appreciated—its Cartoons on the passing political events of tlie country being evon
more engerly sought after than tiie chaste
nnd humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though the hitter Is equal to that of uny
slmllur pnbllcution on tho continent.
The publishers of Grip are making extensive improvements for I WW. The old
cover Is to bo discarded, nml the journal
will hereafter comprlso 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned nnd calendered
pBpor.—evory number boing so ariistlcnllv
executed as to compare favorably with
the best pnper*: ou the continent. The
udvts. will be compressed and more syste-
matlcnlly arranged; while similar Improvements will be made as to the lettei -
press. A now and handsome design will
adorn the title page; wlillc]tlu. Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from t-xti-nslvo
Improvements in the artistic depart ment.
Tlio price of Grip will hereafter ho 83 a

that the. newly , discovered sulphur
springs at Harrison lake, some distance
from Port Moody, eclipse the already
famous spring at Banff, A party has
taken hold of the place and has erected a commodious sanitarium for the
accommodation of ,invalids. The
spring comes out of a pool about ten
feet square, and the water is so hot as
to boil an egg hard in a very few minutes. A road ia now being built,from
" "i Canadian PuoiHc main line to the

it has been bottled a few days loses its
sulphurous flavor, becomes effervescent, und is very similar to Apollinaris

not go on till ho wus present. This
contention was disputed, and judgment reserved. Ths argument was
then proceeded mth on the motion
to quaah ' the writ of habeas corpus
issued by Judge Henry. Counsel for
tho crown held that Judge Henry had
no authority to issue such a writ. If
tlie court which tried Sproule, and
which convicted liim had no jurisdiction the prisoner waived all rights to
such claim when he entered his plea of
not guilty. All pleas of the jurisdiction should bo entered beforo a final
ploa, which would put the accused upon

corpus does not lie to reverse the ordor
of any court of competent jurisdiction.
This must be done by writ of error and

is used for suoh n purpose, that nio

judgment of Mr. Justice Henry was

White Salmon.
. Editor Colombian: Since your valuable paper has taken up the subject of
salmon fishing, allow me through its columns to call the attention of piscatorial
experts to the fact that the river

salmon, such as have rarely,if ever been

season. As every effect lias its Corresponding cause, I cannot but infer that
artificial propagation is the cause of this;

Lobster and Sockeyes.
Editor Columbian: In your issue of

department to promote the cultivation of
lobsters on tlie Paoifio coast I have no
doubt tliis will be carried out, and it will
prove a valuable addition to your fisher-
lei. Mr. Mowat speaks of exchanging,
giving us sockeyes and speckled trout.
Now, the trout might be an addition,
but if they are as ravenous on the young
salmon fry as the ones we possess, we do
not want them. As for those sockeyes,
my dear sir, we won't have them, unless
when transplanted they will rise to 'the
fly, Mr. Mowat knows well the sportive
nature of our salmon, as well as the bu*
perior quality of its flesh, and I would

succeeds I shall have great pleasure in

1 District Roads.
Editor Columbian.--The announcement lately made through the press that
the local government will not spend any
money on public Improvements this season will be rather disappointing news to
the settlers throughout this , distriot.
Although I cannot claim (strictly speaking) to be a New Westminster district
settler, yet I have for the last 27 years
been doing settlement duties in tbis dis*
trict; I have bought, from the government of B.C., land at various times, but
nover for the purpose of speculation.
The land tbat 1 own at present has cost
me, for purchase aud improvements, over
12500. The road leading from the south
bank of the Fraser to it, a distance of
three miles, never was completed according to the contract under the Beavon administration, and the various succeeding
administrations havo, wilfully neglected
to complete that part of the road. Petitions nave boen sent in and promises
have been given at election times, bnt
they have, like pie-crust, been as often
broken. . "•
Eight years ago, at tbe genoral election, I offered myself as a candidate to
represent the district aud, at a good deal
> of expense and risk of lifo and limb, I
stumped the district with the riew of
waking • up the electors to the necessity
of choosing representatives who would
place the settlers in a position to do their
owu road work; but I found tbat it was
like singing psalms to a dead Hon. At
tlie late election I made a similar attempt, but as I had no money bags to
shake at them it was "no go." I wish
now to remind the electors that my advice would have Iwen better than all the
promises they received.
The  moral that I wish to draw, and-
Sresent to the unfortunate settlers of this
{strict, is that, so long as you lend an
ear to designing demagogues, of whatever
Sorty, so long your taxes will be'squan*
Bred, your ronils anil bridges will be Impassable, and government, instead of
being a blessing, will be u curte to the
country. I have travelled' the world
iround and I have never seen a pluue with
so many natural advantages as New
Westminster city and district, nor liave
I ever known a plaeo so badly nmu-tged.
If it were not that hope is a never-dying
firiucinle the heart would g«t very sick

New Yokk, Bept. fl.—General Paine
called on Lieut Henn yesterday morning.
He proposed,, after the international
raccB, to keep the Mayflower in comniis*
siou in Marblehcad Bay until thoro (should
come up a gale of wind, and in this gale
he prouoHo to race the (ialatn-1 from
Marblehead to Cape Cod. Lieut. Ham
was somewhat taken aback at this bold
challenge and asked time to consider tlie
matter. The news of Con. Paine's challenge sot abroad yeaterday, and opinion
is divided in yacht oluh circles in the
discussion of the prospects for to-day's
race. It is the general opinion that a
raco across Massachusetts liny ina gale
of wind would be a much better 'test of
the weatherly qualities of American and
Knglish champions thnn a race around
Bermuda. Oue yacht man said, "English papers have been saying tliat tho
Galatea is not the fastest boat in Kngland but admits sho is unrivalled among
racing yachts for weatherly qualities. I
don't think anyone believes that even
the boasted Irlx could sail witli lior in
a gale. Now hero is a chance for a race
of an horoic kind worthy of two groat
maritime nations, and I hope Lieut. Henn
will accept tho challenge.
j Sandy Hook, Sept. 9.—Shortly aftor
day-break there was aii unusual activity
on board yachts and sailing crafts. Mainsails were set while the thick blaok smoke
that rolled from stacks of steam yachts
showed they were preparing for thework
of the day. AU the great throng of people that had /filled verandahs of hotels
along the narrows on the occasion of the
first race < and those who had stationed
themselves along Long Island or Jersey
shores er wore perched upon walls and
breastworks of tbe two big forts at tlie
entrance to Upper Bay appeared to have
been lifted . tu ono great mass and set
down upon the beach at Sandy Hook or
Jersey bills between Grove and Navisk
Highlands. As far as the eye could
reach was black with people. Not only
from Mat-side resorts did they come, but
item inland towns, whero the contest has
awakened ' intense interest. Piaz
zas of all hotels near tho sea wore occupied by spectators who came down on
early trains and boats. Beforo 9 o'clock
the clouds broke away. In the east
clearing up began, the wind continuing
from oast liy north-east. In the east it
appeared'to freshen. At 9 o'olock signal service gave velocity of wind at 12
miles an hour; the mist began to move
and it was wet work on board of sailing
vessels, and oilskins were in great demand, Vessels coming in from seaward
carried tight Bails aloft.   With wind in

Dublin, Sept.* 9.—Tho conference of
Catholic bishops at Mayuoth adopted
resolutions today declaring that tho
Irish people appreciated Gladstone's

still adhered to their demands for home
rule and indignantly deny tlio Tory assertions that if the Irish people were allowed to govern themselves in domestic
affairs the Catholic majority would misuse the power conferred on the Irish parliament and harass thc protectants of the
country. The resolutions further declare that trouble and disorder in both
Inland and Great Britain will uot cease
until Ireland's right to administer her
own laws is recognized, Walsh, archbishop of Dublin, Crickor, archbishop of
Coshel. Maceville, archbishop of Tuam,
and 23 bishops were present at tho conference when the resolutions were

set forth iu minute detail, and tlie tables
show that, after making allowance for aU
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,109
over liabilities and capital combined,
The increase in the assets in the last year
was $200,300. So much for what can be
dono by rigid adherence to what, the
President defined as the true policy of
tlio Company, viz:—*'To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the

Whitk Bronze Monuments. —White
Bronze is n comparatively new substance,
and lias como into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgepovt, Coun., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
tho material will stand exposure for on
indefinite period—it ia practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable,' it is stated
to bo equal to gold, silver or platinum,
aiid superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cost from refined ziuc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tho
work under a high pressure of steam,
whioh cuts the surface, but does not ad*
here to it. A thin film of oxide whioh
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
tlio elements; it cannot be dissolved by
wator, and air cannot penetrate it, although tho film is so tnin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.—Ronton Journal of Commerce. Chas. J. Robson, Now Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze
Monuments in British Columbia. Much
cheaper and more durable than any
other. my5to'

W, a T.». Protest.
The following is a copy of a memo*
rial and protest prepared by the W.
0. T.-U. against, -granting any new
liquor licenses at the license court to
be hold on the 15th inat:
To-:- (/ie.New-' {JVeslminster  Licensing
Boardi-^-
Gbntlemew: We, tlie members of
tlio Woman's Christian Temperance
Union, bave Been with regret thst at
the next Bitting of your court, tho loth
of this mouth, application will bo
made to you .by two of our citizens for-
" license to sell fermented and intoxicating liquors" iu their respective anticipated hotels; and we feel it to be
our imperative duty to enter our protest against tlioir request boing granted?
Doubtless it will bo urged that our
increasing population requires ■ an increase of hotel accommodation, and
that a hotel requires a " bur'1 to ctfln-
plete its outfit; nlso, that the sale of
intoxicating liipiqrs is''desirable to
mnlte a p-irolicho^-Mtrnefo'e-iind remunerative. Wc are ready gladly to
acknowledge the fact of tho necessity
for increased hotel accommodation, -.in
Nej*-'. tysstmias-ter, and we-wislr; those-
gentlemen who nre undertaking to
' furnish it every success, but it is our
firm conviction from observation nnd
tho expressed feelings of strangers vis--
iting our city tlmt our greatest deficiency, as a city, consists in tlie scarcity of resnectable, well furnished, well
kept houses, entirely free irom the annoyance's consequent upon having a
bar-room attached; where respectable
poople and families, accustomed to
comfortable homes, can Iind a quiot
! resting placo. That such houses would
be welt patronized,, aud, consoquotitly-
pro tit able to their owners, can be'dem-
oust rat ed from the fact that the
Farmers' Home and similar places,
where no intoxicants aro dispensed,
have-been ;ovet-crowded for thu past
yenr, and aro known to have paid
woll. Thore is no reason why a temperance hotel, under the management
of one who understands the busines*-,
should not bo made so attractive and
homelike as to become exceedingly
popular, und thore is' a large and
growing class of the traveling publio
who seek fnr just auch accommodation
and prefer it to all other.
It Cannot bo pleaded that thure is a
scarcity of licensed houses amoin* us,
for there are no less, than six op Front
street, within a few . yards on cither
Bide of the property of one of the applicants; and on Columbia street they
can be counted by the dozen; the new
house for which a license is nsked being built next door to one of thom.
Besides, if a license js considered as a
bonus, offered to induce persons to
provide the town with commodious
lodging houso accommodation, then
any disinterested person will Bay that
this building does not meet the reipdre*
ment, for its dimensions prove its do-
sign has more reference to a liquor saloon than a hotel, a few sleeping apartments being attached as an excuse for
asking a license, knowing that your
court has refused to graut saloon licenses for the last two years. It may
be thought by some that women do
Hot understand this question, not hav-'
tng so much to do with business and
money making as tho men. Wo admit
somo of us have imt, at the same time
we claim to have a right t>> control, in
some degree at toast, matters affecting
the social well-being ofthe com muiiity
in which wo live, since we have to do
with tho education of our children and
the moral reform of our city quite as
much as ytmreeUes,
Gentlemen "of fliiTlioenslng board,
wo feel it t*i be uuueco-isiry to tell you
ofthe evils resulting from the frequenting of public drinking places by
the men of our community, for you
know far moro of the degradation,
misery and crime all around us than
we have ever imagined to he possible,
but the danger is that you have become
so accustomed to sue it all, and hear of
it, that it has coasod tn appear to you
so exceedingly sinful; but nhl for ihe
sake uf all that is pure' aud hilly iti
your own homes, we entreat of you
not tn add iniquity to existing iniquity
by granting nnother " license for tho
sale of fermented and intoxicating
liquors" in our already liquor •curbed
city. Wo make this appeal and protest in the name of the absent wives
and mothers who in distant home-* nre
following with their prayers their
hearts' trensurns, exposed a- they are
to accident, danger and icmptutiou;
and we mako it in behalf of ,mir > wu
precious boys, wlm nre growing up nud
going out iu tn nin- HtreetH. Jt-stw,
who was " tuiched with ihu feeling of
our infirmities," said, " It is impus i*
blo hut nccuiious of stumbling should
come, luit * wife unto bim. through
whom they collie! It were well for
him if a millst-me were hanged ub ml
his neck, and he wm-u thrown into Uie
sen, railier llian lhat he should cause
one of these little onus to stumble,''
That ttnae words may sink deep into
all your lit-ims nnd bring forth action
for God's glory, your petiiioneis will
ever pray.
