Mr* Cbliliolm oa the Crofters,
Ottawa, Fob. 15.—The vigorous
attacks made on a gentleman who
was mentioned in the press as an
old resident of British Columbia
by speakers at the annual meeting
of the Gaelic Society, has had the
effect of drawing forth another declaration from him. The gentleman
in quostion is Hr. Donald Ohisholm,
M.P. for Westminstor. He states
to your correspondent that he had
no desire to evade personal respon
sibility for what he had stated.
Thut he did not at first give his
namo was owing to his belief that
that was a matter of no consequence.
If it is, however, he authorises me
to giro it aa above. Mr, Ohisholm
reiterates the statement that he will
oppose as far as lies in his power
the immigration of large bodies of
crofters or any other impoverished
people at the charge and cost of the
government of British Columbia.
When he used the word "pauper"
ho did not uso it in any offensive
sense, but he claims that people who
come out here at the expense of
others may fairly be classed under
thut term. "I can have no feeling
of hostility towards the Highland
crofters," Mr. Ohisholm said, "for I
am sprung from them myself. If
any of them are poorer than I was
when I began life in America they
must be very poor indeed. It is because I remember my own origin
and experiences that I am determined to oppose any wholesale deportation of the crofter population
of the Highlands to British Columbia. I am too well aware of tbe results of suoh experiments. I have
heard too much of Mr. Hughes'
Rugby colony of Englishmen in
Tennessee and Bishop Ireland's col
ony of Irishmen in Minnesota, where
many actually died of starvation, to
ever give my sympathy tB.,ainlan.
for exposing to similar hardships
C000 of my own countrymen and
countrywomen. If the English
government want to solve the crofter difficulty they must solve it at
their own expense, and not at that
of British Columbia. They are, or
should be, far more interested in
opening out a career for subjects
who are deprived of their livelihood
chielly by the operation of oppressive land laws than a young province
which, while anxious for immigrants,
yet wants those who will bo a hejp
rather than a. burden to it. As for
those speakers at the Gaelic Society
meeting who called me slanderer and
traducer, I ean only say that if the
unfortunate crofters were to be
transferred by thousands to British
Columbia, I would be willing, after
they had been a year or two in the
country, to submit to their judgment
who had been their best advisers—
I, who admonished them hot to
come to British Columbia under tho
conditions spoken of, or the members
of the Gaelic Society of Toronto, who
do so advise. British Columbia is
as fine a country for suitable immigrants as there is under the sun,
but iu wholesale and indiscriminate
deportation there would be hundreds
of unsuitable immigrants, who would
either be n burden to the province
or would starve."—MailCor.
U'Atey MeGee •■ Ihe Bible.
There is, always as a corrective to
diseased imagination, the book of
books itself—the Bible. I do not
speak of its perusal as a duty incumbent ou all Christians—it is not
my place to inculcate religious
duties—but I speak of it hero as a
family book mainly; and 1 say that
it is well for our new dominion that
within the reach of everyone who
has learned to read lies this one
book, the rarest and most unequalled
as to matter, the cheapest of books
as to cost, the most readable as to
arrangements. If we wish our
younger generation to catch the inspiration of the higher eloquence,
where else will ihey find it) If wc
wish lo tench them lessons of
patriotism can we show it to them
under nobler forms than that of the
maiden-deliverer who smote the
tyrant in the valley, or in the grief
of Ksdi'us as he poured tho foreign
king his wino at Susa, or in the sad
ness beyond the solace of song which
bowed down the exiles by the waters
of Babylon) Every species of composition, uud the highest kind in
inch species, is found in those wondrous two. Testaments. We have
tho epie of Job, the idyl of Ruth,
she elogics of Jeremiah, the sermons
of the greater and lesser prophets,
the legislation of Moses, the parables of the Gospel, the travels of
Sl. Paul, tho first chapters of the
history of the ohureh. Not only as
the spiritual corrective of ull vioious
reading, but as tlio highest of histories, the truest of philosophies,
the most eloquent utterances of human organs, the Biblo should lie
rend for the young and by the
young at all convenient s^nwwv ■>

LABI NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
COKDEMKINO TUB TREATV.
Glodci*.stt*.b, Mass., Feb. 22.—
Fishery interests here condemn the
fishery treaty in toto. It is claimed
we lose valuable privileges in Newfoundland waters, especially the right
to procure bait, outfit, etc., and to
land, tranship and dry fish. The line
drawn at Fortune Bay ia also said to
exclude us from valuable waters and
to debar us from getting frozen herring
there.
AUSTBIA ASD RUSSIA AGREE.
Vienna, Feb. 22.—The Austrian
government agrees with Russia, that
the presence of Prince Ferdinand in
Bulgaria is illegal, although it recognizes that his election to the throne by
ths sobranje was in itself legal. The
government has an assurance that Italy
will co-operate with England and
Austria in reference to Bulgaria.
lORll CHURCHILL PREDICTS.
London, Feb. 22.—Lord Randolph
Churchill, addressing the Oxford union
society this evening, denied he had
over stigmatized tbe Irish as "foul
friends. He had not at any time, he
said, indulged in remarks to the discredit of the Irish people and he never
would. Was the erection of an Irish
parliament a just aspiration of Irishmen, he asked, and did England at the
present time have an English parliament? Home rule, he declared, had
not the slightest chance of adoption.
Tho preaent parliament whs likely to
last till 1893 and within that time the
Irish party would probably be wrecked.
THE IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.
London, Feb. 22.—The house of
commons to-day rejected the amendment to the address proposing the creation of a tribunal of judicial rents in
Scotland, Tbe motion for voting the
address was then approved, after
which, on motion that the report on
tlie address be adopted, Mr. Labou
chere moved to insert in the report a
request that the house be informed
whether the correspondence between
England and Italy bound tho former
government to intervene in the event
of a war between France and Italy, j
Mr. Labouchere severely criticized the
foreign polioy of Lord Salisbury, who,
he declared, was willing to drag the
country into foreign war in order to
save his policy toward Ireland. Lord
Salisbury's foreign policy was hatred
toward France and jealousy toward
Russia. He hated France because she
was a prosperous republic that maintained no royalties or aristocracies. Sir
James Ferguson said he was unablo to
understand Mr. Labouchere's purpose
in making these mischievous statements. No reputable statesman in
France would attribute such a policy
to Lord Salisbury, lesst of all those
French statesmen who bad had dealings with Lord Salisbury during hia,
conduct of tho foreign affairs of Great
Britain. The government could not
lay its confidential correspondence before the house, but it could reassure
tho house that no engagement had
been entered into with Italy or any
other power that waa not already
known to parliament. Mr. Gladstone
expressed his satisfaction at Sir James
Ferguson's assurance that the government had conducted a polioy of harmony with France. He was content,
ho said, with the declaration of the
government's policy just obtained, and
believed that the course taken by Lord
Salisbury had been sometimes entirely
in accordance with the sound principles which should ever regulate the
foroign policy of England. He hoped
that whatever happened in Europe, the
unity of sentiment of all parties on
England's foreign polioy would be attained, thus doubling the moral force
of England and increasing her powor
when forced to intervene. Mr. W. H.
Smith congratulated tho house on the
tono of Mr. Gladstone's remarks, declaring it wns worthy of the ancient
reputation of tho house of commons.

ASOTHRR YANKEE GROWL.
Uostox, Fob. 23. — Following is
Richard S. Sputfoid's despatch on tho
proposed fishery treaty, which he has
sent to Luther Maddooks, president of
the National Fishery Association at
Washington: "Mr. Chamberlain de-

fisheries question have, 1 am pleased

In another column Mr, Lleoi'ge
Rawlison, clerk of langley municipality, enters n protest ngainst tlio
introduction of rubbits into this
provinco. We scarcely think there
is any probability of such n catastrophe, for both tho local nnd iui-
psrial-iiuthorUics would certainly
intorposo if an attempt is niiido to
carry out such an insane project.
We hive already expressed the
opinion thnt ralrbits ought not to be
permitted to come into the country.
While it may be true, according to
theories advanced in certain quarters, that tbey would not become n
pest, tho risks connected with such
au experiment are too great to be
incurred recklessly. As our correspondent remarks, wu can get on
very well without rabbits, and where
they are not needed it would bo ex-
tremoly foolish to experiment whero
the risks arc so great.
The text of tho tisheries treaty
which appeared in this journnl yesterday will have been perused with
great interest by our readers, and
with not a littlo disappointment.
It is difficult to discover any oue
important concession made to Canada in consideration of the advantages surrendered to tho United
States. Canadian fishermen aro to
hnve the privilege of fishing in the
waters cf the United States—whero
there are no fish, pnd where Canadian fishermen hnve no desire to go.
The large Canadian bays, the richest fishing grounds on the coast, are
to be thrown open to the Americans
on the simple condition that they
pay a paltry license fee. This fee
is merely nominal, and will not probably reach tho sum of $10,000 a
year for the whole American fishing
tieot. Such a sum is not. worth
mentioning ut all us un off-set for
the privileges it gives. We are
afraid the treaty will meet with
very little favor in Oanada at least.
There is much speculation already
regarding tbe successor of Mr. Blaino
as Republican candidate for tlie
presidency. There is no luck of persons who are willing to accept tho
situation, and, in fact, there is abundance of material out of which to
make an excellent president; but
the chief concern of the party is to
find a man who will carry it into
offioe. There are a great many conflicting interests at work, and a candidate that would be entirely unobjectionable to some sections of the
party would not bo accepted by
others. Those who go in purely for
spoils would not accept a candidate
pledged to civil service reform; and
the Irish Catholic element would
not take kindly to any person who
has not expressed sympathy with
the cause of Ireland. The Now
York Witness thinks Robert Lincoln is the possible candidate who
will meet with least objection, but
Lincoln is not a wire-puller, und it
is very doubtful if he will ever sit
ih the presidential chair whicli his
father filled with such wonderful
ability.
At a meeting of the Board of
Trade last night it was determined
to take proper steps towards having
Westminster harbor described and
placed on the chart books of tho
shipping ports of the world. The
time haa now come when we ought
to receivo a fair share of the ocean
shipping business. The old, crooked
channel through the sandheads has
been abandoned for the new channel,
which is ilmost straight and easy to
follow. The water, also, is deeper j
than it has been, and the filling up
of the old channel is every year adding to the depth and safety of the
new. Between the sawmills and
the fisheries and the demands of
ordinary trade there ought to Iw
business enough to induce sea-going
vessels to make this port. The sawmills alone are able to sappy cargoes
for a large number of ships, and if
tha demand increases their capacity
is also capable of corresponding increase. It is of very great importance that this new trade which
promises to come to us should receive every encouragement, and we
*ra sure every citizen will be glad
to know thst the Board of Trade
has taken up the question of river
navigation in a practical way. Heretofore there has been much ground
for complaint on account of delay in
replacing the buoys whenever they
got oot of place. Days and weeks
have been allowed to go by with
buoys floating over the straits and
vessels exposed to loss of time, and
possibly more serious loss, because
of the negligence of the marine department. We hope the Board of
Trade will see now that this sort of
experience is not repeated, We are
■un tho department at Ottawa will
givo tHe'naoauMiy authority of only
tha matter is placed fairly before it,
and ther* heed be no further em
tarMMmWit. There is no difficulty
•bout entering tho Fraser with ships
of ordinary draught The entrance
is (({Might und well defined, and we
have pilots who know tho river
thoroughly, The risks are not at
all equal to these of entering Columbia River; and when captains onco
d!st*re*byaotual experience how
easy and aafe it is, we shall have no
furtlur trouble about getting ships
up to the oity.

Diek'PuviH, Kirk (iimn^iuid otbevs at iho
card table havo time ami tiiiie ngnifl boon published,in thejiaiicrs, but Ihe way in wliieh
old Captain's, uid tip tho gamblers In Gal-
vefiton iu 1879 wns about us wonderful an
example of whnt lueli will ilo for a man m
ean be found anywhere. The Captain, who
was a retired steamboat mini living nt lions-
ton, frequently visited tbe eity of oleanders,
and whenever he did he indulged in n bit of
a spree andftttu>s!e with the tiger. It wns
one night in the curly spring that I hnd occasion to visit tbe blink presided over by
Odell & Norton, jus: over tlie Two Brothers'
saloon, aud goinir up ihe stairs I I mi shed
nun inst the captain, who was already, although it was still curly iii llio even ing, about
b'df sens over and insisted on my keeping
him company- while Im tackled the royal
l.ongnl nnimal. -limOdell wns at the table
himself dealing es the Captain enterred, and
buying" $50 worth of nlieeks he began the
eontofifi I'Uck steadily favored bim and iu
a few minutes lie bad won $2,750of the bank.
Willi n drunken gravity tlie Captain now insisted that be bad had enough lor one night,
and thut bu was going to bed. The smiling
j.;nmbli*r tried in every way to induce lijtn to
plliv longer but io no purpose, nnd cashing
iu Ids cheeks the captain donned his overcoat and prepared to leave the tiger's lair,
Jim Norton, the other partner, hail entered
the room iu the meantime, and hnd taken his
place at the roulette wheel, which stood just
inside the door of the gijiulilUig l'oo'm. As
ihe Captain lurched by him on his way to
the duor, Norton remarked!*—
"You ain't going out without giving ua a
bet, are you, Cup?"
The Cnptnin slopped n mjmient, and then
unbuttoning his overcoat lie said thickly:—
"Make you just one bet, Jim," and laying
a note all crumpled up into a little ball on
the double eagle, he said:—
"Just let 'er go, Jim."
Around spun the little bull, and when It
stopped nt lust the double eagle had won,
Drawing the note townrd him to see how
much be had got to pay, the double eagle
calling for27 to 1, he burst into u loud outh,
for the Captain had In id down a centurj
note, and that single spin had cost tlie firn
just $2,700 more. Slowly and sadly the surprised gambler paid over the money -saving :—
'•You can go now, Cap. The man who can
Win $2,700 of us at faro aud then double il
on oue bet ut the wheel has too much luck tc
buck against. Come in some tiiueuguiu whoi:
you're sober."
Mitt In tho Minister's Pocket.
Everybody hns heard Pnniel Webster's
story .of-the New Hampshire parson who put
on a pair of trousers In which the wasps bad
built n nest, uud did not make the discover)
until he was in the pulpit. He had just announced the beginning of the text, "Tlu
spirit of the Lord i- in my mouth"—when
the pesky little fellows gut iu their work,
uml the sentence was concluded with the exclamation, ''nnd the devil is in my
breeches".
A St. Paul clergyman found himself in
Hourly us embarrassing position as the New
Hampshire parson when otic Sunday he appeared in the pulpit wearing a pair of fall
trousers which lind been hanging iu the ward,
robe during the long summer vacation. Tlie
wasps had not found him out, but a motherly
oht mouse had. She had spread a nice worm
couch of sealskin pluckiugs in the right-
hand pocket of bis trousers, into which nn
even bulf dozen of oiie-day-old mieelels hnd
been tucked away. It is'a favorite gesture
oftho clergyman tn question, when nbout to
approach n climax in the sermon, to thrust
his right hand iu his trousers pocket and
elevate the left with the forefinger extended.
. It so happened on this particular dny thnt
Elijah's translation was the theme. The
good prophet hud been followed by the do-
'■■iieu t preacher until the climax of the ascension m u chariot of fire had oceu reached
when the clergyman thrust ids right hand
into his trouser pocket. The audience, who
had been banging uu the burning words of
the orator, wore no little started bv the sudden collapse of tbe uplifted left hand, the
index linger of which was in the act nf point-
ing to the gates that were being lifted up to
let tho prophet in. The expression of u
momentary pang shot across the preacher's
face as with a convulsive jerk the other hand
was brought up from the pocket. iLgJitiice
at its contents, a quick squec-ttnf together
of the hnnd, the light thud of something
drooping behind tlio pulpit, an amused
' smile on the face for it second nud then the
glowing theme was resumed. Only those
who sat on the front row in the nmen corner
heard what tho preacher said when he discovered the mice in his hnnd. "Well, I'll
be doggouedl" It was sufficient.—St. Paul
Glob*.
Tha Chemical Cutnposltlon of Man.
From a chemical point of view, mnn is
composed of thirteen elements, of which fivo
nre gases nnd eight nre solids, If wc consider
tho chemical composition of a man of the
average weight of 151 pounds, we will Ond
that he is composed iu large part of oxygen,
whieh is in a state of extreme compression.
In fact, a man weighing 154 pounds contains
ninety-seven pounds of oxygen, the volume
oi which, at ordinary temperature, would
exceed 980 cubic feet. The hydrogen ia
much less in quantity, there being lessthnu
tiftecn pounds, but which, in a free state,
would occupy s volume of 2,800 cubic feet.
The three other gases arc nitrogen, nearly
four pounds; chlorine, about twenty-six
ounces, and fluorine, three, and a quarter
ounces. Ofthe solids, carbon stands nt tho
head of the metalloids, thero being forty-
eight pounds. Next comes phosphorus,
twenty-six ounces. The most abundant
metal is calcium, more than three pounds;
next, potassium, two and n hnlf ounces:
t > odium, two and a quarter ounces, and
lastly, iron, one and a quarter ounce.   It is
. needless to sny that the various combinations
made by theso thirteen elements are almost
Innumerable.
tb* 'Tee" Hflblt in Italy.
With every cup of coffee or cigar or glass
of wino or cognac that you buy you are expected to give a fee 'for'the bottle' as tho
expression goes in the North and 'for mac-
caron!' in the South. This system hns given
rise to nil sorts of tricks or what in this ingenious age might be termed 'improvements'.
Thus—it is the custom In Italian cafes to return change on n small plate on whieh the
guest usually leaves one or two soldo or 5
centime nieces for the waiter. Now a soldo
is much larger than half u franc, so that tho
latter can he completely, covered by the
former. It happens frequently thnt a person
finds among the change returned hy the
waiter a half-franc covered by a soldo, tho
expectation and hope, of course, being that
the soldo covering the half-frauo would be
left for the waiter and tho American would
realise thnt 'now you don't seo it, now you
do.'

A good niter may lib easily made. Take
a common cask and fmt in two false bottoms near tho deiHer -.tbout seven inches

but should he pei'.'onite.l wltli one-fourth
iiK'h holes. The lower bottom is covered
with canvas, and above that is a sheet of
cotton wadding. Above tiie wadding isa
bed of perfectly rleim sand, three inches
deep. The sand should he covered over
with flannel, and itbove the flannel should
be a bed of granulated charcoal (sifted
and fanned free from tlie dust), four
inehen in depth. After having dono this
ill in the upper false bottom and cover it
with a piece of cotton cloth. In the top
ofthe cask fit a moderately deep hag of
canton Manuel, shaped like a funnel, to
prevent the watei; from coming with too
much force upon the upper false bottom.
At the bottom of the cask place a tap to
draw oil the filtered water.

HOME COMFORT,
An old-fashioned recipo for a little
home comfort: Take of thought for self
one part, two parts of thought for family,
equal parts of common sense and broad
intelligence, n large modicum of the sense
of fitness of things, a heaping measure of
living abovo what your neighbors think
of you, twice tho quantity of keeping
within your income, a sprinkling of what
tends to refinement and (esthetic beauty,
stirred thick with the Christian principle
of the true brand, and set it to rise,
rOTATO YEAST.
Boil mealy potatoes, peel them, mash
them very smooth and put to them as
much hot water us will make them of the
consistency of yeast, no thicker. Add
for every pound oi potatoes two ounces
of coarse sugar of treacle, and while the
mixture is warm stir in two spoonfuls of
yeast. Keep it warm until it rises well.
It may be used in twenty-four hours.
One quart of potatoes will make nearly a
quart of yeast.

pour the syrup from it and boil till it

gently a quarter of an hour; tie down

It will keep good for a year and is excellent. If tho flavor of ginger is Uked, you
run boil some ginger root in a niunliu bag

It Saved My Life"
Ii a common expression, often heard
tram those who have realized, hy por-
eonal lie, the curative powers of Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. •• I canuot say enough
la praise ol Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral, be-
Having aa I do that, hut ror its uso, I
should long since have died from lung
tnmUea.-B. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at onco. By continued use
thia medicino cured my cough, and, I
am-aatlsfled, saved my life. —Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Becopd st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayor's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely beliovo I
shonld have been in iny gravo, had it
not been for thia medicino. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for whlchlhad almost despaired of over
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinoe ot Ontario.
Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two yeara ago I took a very severe Cold
whioh settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
USUI I began using Ayer'B Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of thia medicine
completely restored my health. —Lizzie

Hayes, Frout street, complaining that
the people along that street are unable
to procure water, and ut'fl obliged to
come nil the way up to Columbia street
for it. Our correspondent thinks it is
time the council took steps to givo the
city an adequate supply of good water.
The present water works are owned by
private companies, and if our correspondent haa any complaint tu make he
should make it to the company's otli-
cers. Wo agree with him that nn efficient system of water worka is most desirable, and will soon become an absolute necessity.
Hore Kudrprlsc Xcccftwtry,
Farmers often complain that thoy
are unablo to find a ready market in
Westminster for their produce, if
brought in large quantities, and this
naturally drivos them to seek other
markets when the goods to bo disposed
of run up to any considerable amount.
In a city like this with so many wealthy
merchants there should, at least, be
a few with the bump of speculation
sufficiently developed to be willing to
risk a few thousand dollors in purchasing aU the saleable produce in tbo
district, especially when a surplus orop
is unknown to the country and a ready
market oati bo found for it either in
the neighboring cities or in the interior. Last week two farmers came
up from Lulu Island with 30 ions of
potatoes which they wished to sell unbroken. A tour was made of all tho
leading stores in town, but none would
purchase the lot though many oflferod
to take from five to ten bags. Getting
disheartened tho farmers were nbout
to leave for Vancouver when they
happened to run across Mr. Chas. McDonough who gavo them the price demanded and took the potatoes. Yeaterday Mr. McDonough shipped the whole
lot to the interior and cleared a hand*
somo profit on the speculation. Our
merchants should endeavor to mako
Westminster the most attractive market in the province to farmers, and
their enterprise will be richly awarded.
When there is no risk and if certain
gain there is no excuse for letting a
pound of produce pass tho city.
Y.-tl.-f. A. Concert.
This concert took place last night in
Herring's Operu House. Thore was a
a fair attondanco and the programme
was well sustained throughout, ln
tho absence of Mr. Austin, president
of tho association, Mr. W. C. Coatham
occupied the chair. The piano duet
by Misse-i Kind and DeBeck, the
piano solo by Miss Hill and tho accompaniments by Mrs, Geo. Lyal and
Misses Hand, Hill and DeBeck, were
well executed and received the appreciation merited. The two quartettes
given by Mrs. Robson, Mias Delieck
and Messrs. DeBeck and Cunningham,
and the trio by Messrs. Lyal, Ogle and
Cunningham were rendered in good
style and duly applauded. Tho songs
by Messrs. Hamber, DeBeck, Cunningham und Lyal were all deservedly well
received; Mrs. Morroabys "Marguerite" received the first encore of tho
evening and wns sung in excellent
style. Mrs. Lyal aud Miss Major delighted tho audience with their sprightly rendition of **' Gathering Flowers,"
and were oticorcd. Misses Sutherland
and DeBeck sang a duet in whieh they
informed the audience of thoir unalterable determination to remain
single through life, but ended by taking
it all back, as most young ladies do
who make these rash statements. Miss
Holden sang "The Beautiful Shoro"
very sweetly, and received an oncoro.
Perhaps the molt taking feature of the
evening was the guitar solo by little
Miss Edith Robinson, who rendered
two sweet and plaintive airs very
prettily and was enthusiastically encored.

Last evening after drill, and beforo
the company was dismissed, Lieut.
Doane was called to the frout and
mado the recipient of a valuable diamond ring accompanied by tho annexed address. The presentation had
been gotten up so quietly that scarcely
a person, out sldo of those concerned,
know anything of what was going to
happen, and naturally Lieut. Doane
was taken very much by surprise.
Sergt. John Reid road the addross,
which was worded as follows:
L, L. Doane, Esq.,
Ut Lieut. New Westminster Rifles,
Peak Sir,*—It is with feelings of deep
regret we bear of your contemplated departure from our city where yon have
endeared yourself to all, both as a citizen and a soldier. Mori especially would
wu speak of the latter position, in which
you have nerved as private, non-com-
missioned officer and officer, all of which
yon have filled with credit to yourself
and profit to us. Wishing you not to
forget entirely your old camping ground
we nope you will accept from us this ring
as a slight token of our esteem for you;
we hope you will wear it and when looking upon it may it sometimes remind you
of the Royal City and yonr old comrades.
We are in hopes that the preaent farewell may not he a permanent one, and
that in tho near future, or shonld an emergency occur we may see yon bnek at
your old post.
Wishing you every prosperity iu your
new sphere, Wo remain, yours respectfully,   (Signed),
Seimjt. Jons Reid, 8kr-.it. J. M.
Smith, Corporal*Tohn Kelly, on behalf of of the non-com. officers and men.
Now Westminster Rifles.
Feb. 22nd, 1888.
Mr. Doane, in u very feeling reply,
thanked thii company for this expression of their appreciation of his efforts
on behalf of the company whilo connected with it, and trusted that he
might at sumo future time bs ablo to
stand shoulder to shoulder with hit
old oomrades of tho Westminster Rifles.
Jus. Shannon, LcOBkdalc, writes: "For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and could get no relief until
about two years ago; Bite was then not
able to walk, and the pain was then so
excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your agent was then on his regular trip, and she asked him if ho could
cms her. Ho told her Dr. Thomas'
Eclectrio Oil was a suro cure. Sho tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days the pain was all allayud
and tho foot restored to its natural condition. It is also tho. beBt remedy for
bums and bruises I ever used,"
DOMINION PARLIAMENT
Opens To.Day—The Speech   from Ike
Throne.
Ottawa, Feb. 2a.—The Dominion
parliament was opened this afternoon
with the usual formalities, Tho spoech
from tho throne was as follows;—It
affords me much gratification to meet
you onco more at the commencement
of the parliamentary session, nnd to
congratulate you on tho general prosperity of the country. Although the
labors of tho husbandman havo not
been rewarded in some portions of the
Dominion by uu adequate return
tho harvest of tho past year has,
on tho wholo, boon plenteous,
while in Manitoba and tho Northwest
it was ouo of romarkable abundance.
Tho negotiations between Her Majesty's govornment and that of tho U.
S. for the adjustment of what is known
as ' tho fishery question' have, I am
pleased to inform you, resulted in a
treaty which will, 1 venture to hope,
be considered by you as honorable and
satisfactory to both nations. The
troaty, with the papers and correspondence relating thereto will be laid
before you, and you will be invited to
adopt a measure to give effects to its
provisions. The extension and development oZ our system of railways havo
not only rendered necessary additional
safeguards for lifo and property,
but have given greater frequency
to questions in which the interest of rival companies are found
to be in conflict, and to require
authoritivo adjustment. As further
legislation appoars to be needed for
these purposes a measure will be submitted to you for the consolidation
and improvement of the railway act.
Experience having shown that amendments are required to mako the provisions of the act respecting elections
of tho members of the house of commons moro effective and more convenient in their operations, you will
be asked to consider a measure for the
amendment of that statue. The act
respecting controverted elections may
likewise requiro attention, with a view
to the removal of certain questions of
interpretation which have arisen
which should be set at rest. My government has availed itself of the opportunity afforded by the recesB to consider the numerous suggestions which
have been mado for improving the details of tho act respecting tlie election
franchise, and a measure will be submitted to you for the purposo of simplifying the law and greatly lessening
the cost of its operation. Legislation
renders expedient an improvement in
tho system of government and legislation* affecting certain portions of the
Dominion, and a bill for that purpoBO
will be laid before you. A bill will bo
submitted to you to make a large proportion of thB modern laws of England
applicable to tho provinco of Manitoba
and the Northwest Territories, aud in
regard to matters which are within the
control of the parliament of
Canada, but which havo not
as yet been tho subject of Canadian
legislation. Bills will be presented to
you relating to the judiciary, to the
civil service act, and to tho audit of the
public accounts. The accounts for the
past year will be laid before you as
well as the estimates for tho ensuing
yoar. They have been preaerved with
a duo regard to economy and the requirements of the public service. 1
commend theso important subjocts,nud
all matters affecting the public interest
which niiiy'bo brought beforo you, to
your best consideration, und I feel assured that you will address yoursolves
to them with earnestness and assiduity.
M. A. St. Mars, St. Boniface, Manitoba, writes: "Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil

of English rabbits. A Welsh rare-bit is
not to be sneezed at if a person's digestive organs are in good running order,
but an English rabbit is a thing to be
sighted behind a double barrelled shot
gun. If Vancouver Island wants rabbits let her have them, but all the undermining tho mainland wanta can bo
done in a harmless way by the editor
of the Colonist, The boat way to treat
the rabbits would be tho same as the
Yankees did the ten ut Boston, and
pitch them into the gulf, and try and
get lodgings fur the crank who proposes to get them in oue of the public
institutions where his erratic idoas will
be confined between four stone walla.
Now Mr. (whoever you nre), countermand your ordor, and fetch out a car
load of guinea pigs, or farmers' daughters instead, and consign your rabbits
tu tho antipodes, or hades, or some
other warm country, but don't bring
them here. We havo seen euuugli of
them in the land of their nativity to be
able to fervently exclaim with tho city
olerk:
llnbbtts young und rabbits old,
Rabbits hot and rabbits cold,
Hnbblts tender, rabbits tough;
We thank the Lord we've had enough,
G. Rawlison.
