One benefit, at all events, wo
have reaped from the iYoifs conversion to independence. We get fair
aooounts of the election meetings
and of the course of the campaign.
The Mail must expect tliat there
will be a jefk in switohing off, and
that it will forfeit the patronage of
some Tories whb take ho political
literature except glorification of the
Tory chief and abuse of his opponents. But this will pass away.
. The London Times went through
the same ordeal in a more trying
form, aha its prosperity soon returned... The world would be in its
dotago if it continued to prefer onesided information and biassed criticism,—Th* WedtJ'
It is quite possible that when'
Sir Charles Tapper was in England
he impressed upon Lord Salisbury
the claims r* Sir John Msodonald
to an ImperW a-if/»»tnient. It is
not easy to 'Mr wteiappointmeiit
would be suitable for Sir John, unless it wire the governor-generaisbip
of Canada and he has taken so active a part in the politics of tbis
country .Uut the Imperial author!
ties would hesitate at giving hiin
that A man wlio has" spent His
life-time in Osnfedaj and who' I lias
been so intimately associated With
every important step of her progress
would hardly feel disposed to turn
his baok on her and spend the evening of his life in some other land,
so that even if Lord Salisbury
offered Sir John a post in somo
other country it is doubtful that he
would accept it. The impression is
gaining ground that this is the last
campaign in which Sir John will
take part and that after the elections are over he will make way for
Sir Charles Tupper; The Conger
vative party without Sir John will
not seem like the Conservative
party at all, hut all the indications
go to show that Sir Charles has
mode his terms and that they embrace the succession to the leadership. Colonial governors are not
uncommon and Sir JoSn's long parliamentary experience would be of
greal benefit to him if he wore appointed to Borne such office, but it
would not be like him to desire to
sever himself from the scenes of his
political triumphs or make his home
at this late day in some distant
land.—Toronto Telegram.
The New York legislature has
unanimously asked the railroad
commissioners to report what legislation is necessary to prevent such
cruel destruction of life by fire, and"
the peremptory prohibition of stoves'
of every kind in cars will doubtless
follow. Twice within a very short
time there has been the same awful
loss of life by the burning of a railroad train. Every moment by day
and night the trains are moving,
and there is this constant and frightful peril, and it is evident that publio opinion will tolerate it no longer.
Ths assertion that it is impossible
effectually to remedy the difficulty
by heating Cars safely is disproved
by facts. Oars ere heated comfortably without, .reducing the power of
locomotives to draw the train. One
investor of a steam-heating appara
tus assorts that the faot has been
demonstrated upon the Boston and
Albany road, and that the heating
is more economical. The elevated
oars, and cars upon short roads, as
on the Staten Island Rapid Transit,
are heated without stoves, and undoubtedly thi system oan be adapted to longer routes, There is apparently no difficulty in the matter
which the expenditure of money
will not remove, .Stoves of any
kind, or firs in or near the Oars, cannot be allowed, The cars are perfectly dry wood, rendered doubly
inflammable by paint and oil, and
the-spread of fire is instantaneous.
In the Spuyten Duy vil oatustrophe,
a few years since, by the time that
a passenger could alight from one
ot the cars that escaped, the crushed
ean were already a bonfire. . lt may
be assumed that nothing will lie
done by the railroad companies except under pressure ot the law. For
several years the chief horror of
every disaster has been the burning
of the oars and nothing has been
dona to provide a general system ot
safe heating, and nothing will be
dons until: tlw law requires it—

A Critic Criticised.
Our cotemporary of the Vanoouver Herald devotes over a column
Ol hia last issue to a criticism of
Itr. Tripp's address to the electors.
When the Movement w»s hegun
looking towards the nomination of
■ candidate in the interests of moral
reform with a view to defeating Mr.
Chisholm, our cotemporary pretended to sympathise earnestly with the
object of the movement, while disapproving of the methods whioh
it waa proposed to employ. He denounced thfconvention, and kept
finding faUl with every step taken
by the party,' until one could soarcly
escape the conviotion that his professed sympathy was nothing but a
mask under which he believed he
could more securely and more effectually work against the interests of
reform. The mask has now been
abandoned, and the Herald openly
accepts. Air. < Chisholm as its candidate, "CW cotemporary will probably attempt to reconcile his pre
tended sympathy -for temperance
and moral reform with his acceptance of the candidate who represents a trafflo that has probably
done more to help the Devil than
any other agency, bnt he will have
some difficulty in persuading his
readers that he is honest. Speaking of Mr. Trapp's address, the
Herald first finds fault because he
announces himself as an independent. It quotes his declaration that
any person going to the house of
commons pledged to any particular
party had allowed himself to be fettered, and says: "You are not asked
to pledge yourself to party, but to
principles." Now, has Mr. Ohis-
holm- pledged himself to principles!
Has he made any pledge at all with
respect to temperance or moral re.
form—the question! about which
our cotemporary not long ago professed te be so sincerely concerned!
He hu made none, because his life
and occupation in past years are too
well known to permit of deceiving
the pnblic in this matter. If our
cotemporary is able, then, to accept
Mr. Chisfsohn without pledges, how
east he condemn Mr. Trapp because
he hai failed to express an opinion
on certain publie issues! So far as
we have seen Mr. Chisholm has
.iijsias.il no opinion CB "The tariff,
and ia thia reapect he is on the
suae footing as Mr. Trapp. But
te an-e mti-nated that he will give
at, '•hj-dependent'" support to the
present govemment, and we may
reaanoabiy infer from this that he
approves of the present tariff.   Bol
Mr. IW*!!) deSrrfthr free
trade is quite, out of the question,
and Mr. Mackenzie when in power
raised the tariff from 15 per cent
to 174 per cent Sir John raised it
. gtiU higher, and adopted a distinct
policy of protection. Mr. Blake is
in favor of such a tariff as is needed for revenue purposes. But a
nvenue tariff must necessarily be
protective, and a protective tariff
ean scarcely help being revenue pro-
dooing.":' -Obi-. Vancouver cotemporary had better study the question
further before he commits himself
to an absurdity. Because a man is
independent of party it does not
follow that he is without a definite
opinion on all tha publio questions
of the day; but if he pledges himself to either party he simply sur
renders his judgment and becomes
a maohine that springs up to record
its vote whenever the party manager pulls the string. Tbis is the
kind Of thing the Herald
wishes to represent us at Ottawa!
Tlw folly of requiring suoh a pledge
appears j specially manifest under
existing circumstances. The result
of the general elections just held is
that neither party has a sufficient
majority Ori .which to carry on the
govemment: "jiir John may succeed
in winning over from the other sido
members enough to make him safe
in offica/ipriie may not. If he does
not, evaiy/rtpresentative that goes
to Ottawa pledged to .support Sir
John, goes as an opponent to, the
government jof Ut. Blake, and the
interests of, ;this province may he
made to suffer. Looking at the
situationefroma purely selfish stand-
point, thtretore, it would clearly be
bad polioy to send as our representative a man-wko is pledged to any

ELECTORS
—OF—
Hew WostiinstBr District,
GENTLEMEN,—I lmvo already an-
noiicccl myself an a ciinttidato for tlio sent
iniuiovacuntby tlio denth of our lute representative, nnd ua no election lias taken
plnco to All tlmtvnBivucy.InotvoHl'r myself at this, the General Election.
Ah lt Is my Intention to visit and hold
fublic meetings tn every settlement of
lie district before election day, I Will
merely In thin nddress refer to tno different subjects thnt uro vital to our interests
ns a district nnd province, which will be
discussed at length on the public platform,
when I hopo all aspirants for the honor
of representing you m tho Common* will
be present and take pnrt in the discussion,
of which duo notice will bo given.
The following nro some ofthe most Important questions that will have my serious consideration:
Tlie Improvement of llic Navigation of
Fnuer Blver.—The Now Westminstor
Board of Trado havo, with the assistance
of our Into TpptRseptatiyo, been successful
in ubtalntftOT SttiAtfl'approprlntion foi*
this purpose, which Iiiih been expended
tho past fall; and It will be the, .duty of
your representative to secure such nnnual
grants ns will suffice to complete this im*
fiortant work, whioh will enable ships of
he heaviest draught to navigate tho Fraser river at all stages of the tide, and all
seasons of the year.
Kqanltcn* Claims.—With reference to
this matter there has been gross neglect
on the pnrt of the Dominion Government,
nnd I am of the opinion that those settlors who located their land under Instructions from what is known as Mr.
Tnutch's pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto froo of charge—and-the fact
that settlers havo been unable to Beoure
their titles has noted very detrimentally
to the Interests of the provinco generally,
and (If elected) I will bo unceasing In my
efforts to secure tho adjustment of every
clnlm ln the distriot.
Hallway So«th.-Another very important matter ln connection with onr district is railway connection with our neighbors south of the line. Several charters
to connect this city and diatrlct with the
American system of railways have boen
granted by our local legislature, but wero
unfortunately disallowed by tho Dominion Government (doubtless through the
influence of the C. P. It.) The position
hitherto held by tho Dominion House ls
now untenable, and the monopoly clause
of tho O. P. K. will have to bo done away
with. Should this be done there Is no
reason why rnilway construction should
not commence ln the near future, as our
American cousins nre ready and willing
to commence work as soon as the way Is
open. X need only sny that I shnll use my
best endeavors to obtain said railway connection and the abolition of the monopoly clause. „__„_.
Rnilway Grlevances.-The C. P. R. have
maintained excessive rates for local trafflo
In this province and to points as far east
as Winnipeg. This is not us it should) be,
and Is one of the reasons why thnt great
corporation should be taught that it Js not
the only power In tho land, but that lt
must bo mnde subservient to tlie interests
of the people. m
Telegraph* nnd Rail ways.—1 am of the
opinion that all telegraphs and railways
should be ownod and operated by tne
governmont ln the Interests of tbe people,
us Is partially the case In England, Germany nnd elsewhere, and shall (if elected)
do nil loan to bring nbout this very desirable Btato of things,
The NallH.—I shall use my beet efforts
to have all settlements on the south side
of the river supplied regularly with their
malls from Ladner's Landing by way of
the Grnnd Trunk rond to Chilliwhack und
nny other places notalrcndy supplied with
mall accommodation.
The Temperance qnesilen.—Upon this
question I feel very warmly nnd sympathise most heartily with nil thoBewnonre
anxious to do away with tho evils caused
by the liquor traffic and shall (If elected)
givo my hearty support to any measures
tlmt mny be Introduced to advance this
very desirnblo object, .
Tlie Chinee qwBllou.-With regard to
lo this question, I consider lt an unmixed
evil, yet nt tho snmo time one of the hard-
problems tbat this nation has to deal
with. I deem it of vital Importance that
our Legislatures, both Federal and Provincial, should ilo their utmost to discourage this untile, and at the same time use
all legal means in their power to got rid of
thoso Chinamen who nre already amongst
The last question that I wish to bring beforo you is tlint of independence, I again
rolternto tho statement made by myself In
tttfipapors-a
"ln Politics, I nm and will be thor*
onglily Independent.'*
Several of the I), O. papers Imve taken
up this statement nnd havo said a groat
many uncomplimentary things concerning mo, flitch ns « being on the fence," *• a
Grit In disguise," nnd bo forth. I therefore
deem It necessary to explain what I mean
by being thoroughly Independent. I consider nuy inembor sent to Ottawa from this
Provinco pledged to support any particular

The greatest evils which threaten the u*0'
To the Electors ofthe Kleetoral District of Kew Westminster.
GENTLEMEN:—Shortly after the lamented death of our late Representative,
Mr. Homer, I was Solicited by a number
of my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Candidate for the Representation of the Distriot of New Westminster In
the House of Commons ot Canada. The
personal solicitation of friends, was shortly followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent and lnfluenlal Electors of the City ond Dlstrlet, tbat I felt lt
to be my duty to place my serVlceBattheir
disposal. It Is not therefore. Gentlemen.
as a self-nominated candidate, that I ask
for your support, bllt I do so In response to
the request of over four hundred of your
number.
To many of you.-aentlemen, who have
known me for a long time, lt Is unnecessary for me to say, tbat I am perfeotly
familiar with the great and varied resources of this Province. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experience, and will (If elected) enable me to place prominently before Parliament, tbe great resources of
this Province, and. the means necessary
to be employed to aid In their further
development.
It is impossible, Gentlemen, in an address such as this to do more tban allude
to some of the questions of Interest and
Importance to you. whioh as your representative, I would consider It to be my
duty to bring to the notioe of Parliament.
I will, however, enumerate a few matters
of great Importance to us all, ln regard to
wh Ich tt will be my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
I will endearour to have removed from
the mouth of our noble River, every impediment to Its free navigation, and nave
necessary lighthouses erected,
I will endeavor I to secure to settlers and
squatters an Immediate title to their
landB. This I consider to be a matter not
only of Justice, but also of expediency.
Heretofore great Injustice bos been dene
toa valuable nnd deserving olass of our
population, to whom, had justice been
done and facilities afforded for acquiring
homesteads, the results of their Industry
would, ere this, have done much to devel
op the agricultural capabilities of this line
dlsUtot. .     ,
I am aware, Gentlemen, that the number of representatives to whioh eaoh province of the Dominion ls entitled ls based
upon population, yet I believe tbat, owing
to exceptional circumstances, auoh as tbe
fact that thin province contributes to the
revenue of the Dominion a muoh larger
percentage, according to population, than
nuy of Ino other provinces; and also to
tbe fuet that large centres of population
arc rapidly being formed ln this district-
that tt is entitled to a larger representation In the parliament of the Dominion,
and which ns n matter of Justice I will en-
deavor to obtain.
I will nlso endeavour to obtain for the
residents of this District better postal
facilities, to which they are justly entitled.
I will use my best efforts to secure equitable rates on nll railway and telegraph
lines, aud to have the same fixed bylaw.
The interests of British Columbia de-
maud that every Impediment In tho way
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundary and other portions of this district be removed, to aid lu the development of our resources. I will endeavor to
have this accomplished, and also to obtain aid for the construction of canals and
the Improvement of navigable streams.
I will also consider It my duty to render
nll possible aid to any legislation which
seeks to simplify and render less costly
the administration of justice, especially
as betweon individuals and corporations.
My 'political platform is. ln the first
placo, tho interest of rritisn Columbia,
which I believo can be best served by my
giving an independent support to the
present government, which has not In the
pnst been unmindful of the interests
of British Columbia, and to whom we
are Indebted fur the early completion
of the railway, which has brought
us Into communication with the Eastern
Provinces and Europe, and through
tho agency of which, we will ln the
near future, be placed In direct communication with Australia, China, Japan,
and tlie Great Eastern Empire, which
must provo to bo of Incalculable value to
this province, and to this district In particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I havo only
to say, that I am prompted by a sincere
desire to benefit this district and to atd ln
promoting its vnrlcd Interests, and I ask
your support only upon these grounds.
It is my Intention to see ns mnny of you
previous to the election ns time nnd circumstances will admttof in the meantime,
I remain. Gentlemen,
Yours very truly,

Not Mat Kennedy.
Editor Columbian.—In yonr issuo of
Tuesday laat, a communication appeared
headed "Thc duty of the Klcctors," nml
signed "Geo, Kennedy." Several of Mr,
Chisholm's supporters have asked mo if I
wm the author of the article, nnd intimated that I was either ashamed or
afraid to sign my own name. With
your permission ana to put that question
at rest, I beg to say tbat until I snw it
in print I knew nothing of it. Thoro
are a numbor of Kennedys in this placo
and, I believe, two George Kennedys.
It is a inatter of indifference who wrote
the communication; tho vital question is,
does it set forth "truisms" or does it
libel anybody! If it is a libel tho law is
open for redress; if it is eimply a state*
ment of a few naked facts, with good
sound reasoning, no doubt it will make
somebody wlnoe a little, especially the
"sore-heads." But if men are silly enough to make political targets of thorn-
selves, they muat expoot tp net hit, and
they ought to be thankful that they esoape with so little damage. Political
aspirant, should provide themselves
with good thiok cow-hides, or else a little
common sense—just enough to enable
them to see themselves as others see
them.   This is

At the annual generul meeting of
the Nortii American Life Assurance
oompany, held nt Toronto lately,
Rev. Dr. Nelles, principal of Viotoria
university, in moving a resolution of
thanks to Bon. A. Mackenzie, president, and tho oflicers of thu company,
said:
I fesl a little delicacy in moving a
resolution of this kind, because I am
not a financier snd utn not able, in
view of my othor engagements, to pny
as oloae attention to the subjects referred to hy this motion as some of
the gentlemen preseut, who nre doubtless much more competent to move
this resolution. If it were a question
of theology I could aay aomething nnd
feel some confidence in aaying it, and
were I right or wrong I would believe
I.was right. Evon on that great Confederation question I would have nn
opinion and would express it. On the
ground of faith, and without qualification or limitation, nnd partly on tho
ground of observation, I feel confidence and pleuure in moving this resolution. I have great fnith in yourself, sir, and u you are present, I am
very glad to have opportunity of saying it. Behind your back I would
not say anything different; but all
people are not so true a. I am. Behind your back I only get one common
testimony in reference to yourself, and
thst is tho great confidence in you as
the chief officer .of this institution.
(Hear, hear.) Your political opponents are beginning to discover, if
they did not know while you were the
prime minister of Canada, that you

it is sincerely gratifying lhat during
those yoars of your life the publio recognizes and appreciates those grent
qualities which command universal

the opportunity of meeting with you
waa in crossing the Atlantic, aud I am
vory glad to know that the voyage was
attended with beneficial results. I
had the pleasure of preaching you a

ITAKUY TALKS ABOUT THE DIFFICULTIES,
"We have naturally considered tho
question of tho routes very seriously,
and discussed it very thoroughly. I
will explain to you how matters stand.
It is possible to reach Emin either
from ahe Congo or from Zanzibar.
Let us tako the Zanzibar route. My
expedition is 1,000 strong; whon it
leaves Suufttr. What will it be wheu
we reach the savage-bound circle drawn
round torn I ten have marched, say,
1,000 miles under A torrid snn, each
man carrying sixty pounds. During
this arduous journey your number iB
gradually decreasing. Somo desert,
some are fatigued, some die, some aro
killed, some are weakened by bhang.
The rumor goes about that the real
danger does not begin until you reach
the fringe b)f" the,.circle. Panic may
seise the menj and then—why, thoy
may desert in a body. Thoy have
came from Zanzibar, and tho way homo
ia open to them. Take the Congo
route. The King ef the Belgians has
given us permission to use the steamer
on the Upper Rirer, the journey is
comparatively eaay, food is plentiful,
and you land yonr. men on the edgo of
the danger circle fresh, active, in good
spirits and in good condition. But
moat important of all, they cannot
desert. If they turn tail they have
not Zanzibar behind them, but only
Uie waters of the Congo. The advantages oi one route over the other aro
obvious. Th» difficulty now ia the
transpoifcaoiU'gAnjn-a* to the Congo.
I hope t» find a steamer ready when
Mr. Sauneythen spread out a well-
worn map of Equatorial Africa, on
whioh the mighty Congo and ita tributaries were indicated in heavy blue
washes, spreading itself out liko a
monarch of tho forest with its thousand
limbs. The great equatorial lakes
were shown on a large scale—Tanganyika, Victoria Nyanza, AJbert Nyunzo
and the Nile winding its way post Wa-
delai and Khartoum. Mr. Stanley
then described a rough circle with a
load pencil through which tho expedition has to pass before it can reach the
beleagured Emin. By moans of a telegraph form and a pair of rusty dividers
he measured off tlu) possible routes,
explaining how the dreaded power of
MWanga, of Uganda, son of his old
friend M'Tesa, had sproad.
"Here," indicating the stretch of
oountry between tho great lakes, aro
some of the best fighting men in all
Africa, 200,000 of them and moro.
So matter whioh route the expedition
takes, thenk is the danger, for Uganda's power Mends right up to Albert
lfyansu."£' &
"Could *«« cross Viotoria by boats)"
"We' tflfe one boat with us for tho
rivers," replied the explorer. "I cannot tell you what I Bhall do. My secret must remain undirnlged. M'Wan-
ga's emissaries are everywhere.
"Whichever way we go, I shall send
couriers with dispatches until wo touch
the fringe of the terrible girdle which
incloses Emin in its grasp. From the
circumference of this circle to the center is, Ljstimate, a distance of some
300 to 40 mile*.. I shall dispatch my
lut ooutiers inm ite edge, and before
they resell 'the tout 1 shall hope to
have oome up with Erafn Boy. You
should hear newa of us about July.
"Of course Tipoo Tip is an old friend
of mine. I remember him ob a most
agreeable and gentlemanly fellow. He
once beet ono of my own men in a
foet- race and, oarried off a silver goblet Hip, etdiy is told in one of my
books, but his power and influence has
extended enormously since then, i His
headquarters are at Kaaonge. M'Wan-
ga must havo been a child when I was
with M'Tesa, his father. He was educated by a Roman Catholio priest, but
when he succeeded his father the
priests were the first to suffer. One
of my difficulties is that if I trouble
him, the misstoBeriei he has in his
Eower (Bishop Hannington waa ono of
is victims) will certainly suffer. He
is just about twenty now, I should
think.":
"What is tho full strength of the
expedition/" ,,_.....   .
"About one thousand men, all told.
Betide myself I. have eight Englishmen; the rest of the number is made
of Zanzibar's. Already the caravan
hu grown beyond my original intention. The estimated cost is £20,000.
The preparation hu been ordered by
cable to Zansibar, and when we reach
there all should be ready. Each porter carries sixty pounds woight, and I
allow eaeh European 180 pounds baggage. We Shall depend for food upon
what the villages Mid our guns supply,
taking only such luxurios as tea, coffee,
sugar, tobacco, and Uie things Africa
does not supply. The equipment of
an expedition -such as this is not a
diffioult *katt»r,ehougli it is an interesting calculation—a rule of throe sum.
H twenty men require so muoh, how
much will 20,001 .want) One hu to

Thirteen miles a day is good work,

country, whether it is dense forest or

" If I dio," wrote Emin Bey, " who
will take thia work up 1 I think only
of that, I am too much needed here
to think of having my post. Time is
wanted; but from tho seed 1 have
tried to bow doubtless good fruit will
Bpring up." " Will ho roturn, do you
think, -Mr. Stanley?" "I cannot
say," ropliod tlio explorer, gazing into
the fire and following the trail of
smoko from hia oigar. "Livingston
declined, so may Emin. But the object of the expedition is to tako him
relief, by supplying him with ammunition, Having fulfilled that part of
our undertaking, we have to bring out
with us the fifty women and children
of the Cairo Arabs who are with him.
I can say nothing about the stores of
ivory whioh he may have accumulated.   No, 1 have never met him.
" Am I of a hopeful temperament!
Well, I dare say we all have our despondent hours, whon everything
aeouiB to go wrong. Who has not,
if he sees failure staring him in tho
face through lhe folly or carelessness
of some mer.,jor of un expedition in
whioh all the best qualities of a mun
aro put to the tost? I Bhould be despondent if, say, I found at a crucial
point of my journey my mon were
seized with panic and only a handful
of white men was left. Those might
stay or return; to stay would mean
death; to return, to fail. The expedition is full of dangers and difficulties
whioh no ouo can forosoo. I do not
want to be troubled with fighting.
Fighting ia folly if it can be avoided.
I prefer diplomacy.
" Yos, I am in excellent' health. I
never allow the luxuries of civilization
to demoralize ine, snd I never wss a
gourmand. I shall bo happy when I
Bet foot once more on African soil, and
I fall readily into my old nomadio way
of life. Tea, coffee, milk, tobacco.but
atimulants seldom. Yes, here I smoko
aix cigars a day. In Africa I have my
pipo and mild tobacco. I did not begin
to smoke until 1 was 25, and could not
grapple with a pipe till I was 30. Since
then I have ilways found tobacco a
Bolooe and an aid to concentration. I
remember when on one journey down
the Congo, we wero just about to enter a most dangerous country. I knew
that a fight was inevitable, and told
my men to make ready. I took an
observation, lighted my pipe and
smoked for live minutes to settlo myself for the actiion. We woro fighting for our lives a few minutes afterward, and tlio battle wont on for
hours. Livi.igstone never smoked."

Mr. C. E. RiggbiB, Boamsvlllc, writes.
—"A customer who tried a bottle of
Norhrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
says It is the best tiling no evco used; to
quota his own words. "It bust seemed
to tough the spot affected." About a
year ago ha had an attack of bilious

White Bronzb MoNUMBarw.—White
Bronze I. a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large uae, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It hu
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
snd styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it hu bean found that
ttie' material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—It ia practically indestructible. Whito Bronzo being non-
corrosivo and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris, The monuments are cast from rofined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts tlio surface, but does not ad-
hero to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze Is indistruotible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although tho llm Is ao thin as tobe immeasurable. So corrosion, It Is affirmed,
can tako place.—Boston Journal of Commerce. Clia.i. J, Kobson, Mow Westminster, is agont for the White Bronze

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption hns for some
time been recognized by Medieal Men to
be tiio most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives,'* but iii cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably Impossible until the Introduction of tlie Starr Kidney
Pad. It costs less thau a single prescription and Is Immeasurably mora decisive
and effective than any quantity qf internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, Its curative properties
become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Organs, continuously and directly,
as required to tnsuro In return their healthy action nnd original vigour. It is com*
fortabio to tbo patient and pleasant ln Its
effecte, and cures when nothing else can.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A moro .valuable
discovery as a true remedy for Kioiey
Diseases wnsnever made.—Mcdical Gazette

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing   Company
(IjIMITEII*).)
ON THK 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columiuan Newspaper and
Printing Concern wns purchased l>y a
joint stook company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known as the
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has boon for
nenrly a year owned and controlled by
tlie British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminstor,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlio object of
tho now company is to continue thc publication of thc Hiutish Colombian news*
paper and carry on a uenornl printing and
publishing concent, controlled entirely by
thoso whoso individual interest it will be
to promote tho development, especially
of the Mainland,' ' There will be no
slackening of tho' energy hitherto dis*
played in the management of the estab*
lishment, nnd its patrons may rely upon
receiving full valuo for their money.
The Colpmuian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the ad van ecu lent of tncli schemes ns
may be considered In the public interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishmunt in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R,
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
hi his own mme and for his own benefit,
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publio patronage on the ground that It Is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publio welfare,, It asks thnt the Columbian bo judged on its owu merits and
supported only bu long as Its polioy Is
consistent with its professions. In oon*
sequence of this business change all accounts duo tho concern must bo settled
Without delay so lhat tho books of' the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

Thii. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Security offered to polio**' holders Ib
tin nur passed by any Company doing bual-
nesH In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, heuce the polioy
holders cannot he misled as to thefr Contracts,
Ite statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every item of Income and how expended.
Its position tsaseertalned annually from
a detailed valuation ln whioh every Item
of liability Is included.
Its progress has been unexampled ln
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence,
Ite profits are distributed upon an equitable basis. The proflte to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to nny other olass, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.
